in my daddy’s arms i am fine
secure from what, i think is mine
i am not quite two
and can’t make wise decisions
on what i should do
so i will wait until i am three
and in the meantime i will rest
in arms that hold me close and best..
It’s time for the Daily Post’s, weekly photo challenge of Security
hiding behind tissue
is really not fun
my sneezes could take me
almost to the sun
red noised i have been
i have not been told
people have been polite
through these weeks
of a cold
how wonderful to breathe
through my nose once again
because my mouth got so dry
and it was getting quite old..
it feels good to feel good again
This was the Cherry on Top, of our celebratory birthday, road trip, for my hubby, Paul. It had been several months since we had driven to the coast, and eating sea food was his preference. He also shares this birth-date with my youngest son, Eric and a grandchild, who turned one year old. Both reside in California. We stopped at a spot called Fogarty Creek State Park, mainly to get up close to the ocean. We traipsed through the sand and were watching the waves, when our attention was diverted to a noise and as I scanned and looked around, I spotted these Bald Eagles. Many of us here at WordPress are bird enthusiasts. I have not figured out how to capture them, up close and personal, but was happy to observe them, for the time we did. I must share a short story about them. The eagle on the right flew off and away and the other sat there. A short time later a seagull came around and it appeared that it’s intent was to harass the eagle. It kept flying around and over it and attempted a few dive bombing techniques. As the eagle sat calmly, my feather’s ruffled at what I observed. I don’t know a lot about birds, but I am sure that the eagle could have taken on the seagull. Apparently it was not perturbed one bit. The Daily Post photo challenge is Cherry on Top. This opportunity to view the eagles was very much a special event to end our day..
It has been quite a while since I have let my creative flair go for Photo Art Friday. With our recent move out-of-state, I had to curtail my time online. I am back and raring to go… The challenge for this month of February is GRAPHIC/GEOMETRIC/ANGULAR. I worked with a few different photos and could not narrow my choice down to one. So I am going with these for today. In all of them I use my image and then pick a texture from the many choices at Pixel Dust Photo Art.
We have had a full and overflowing kind of weekend. All five of my senses got to really kick in to taste, see, hear, feel and touch in a different manner. We are not one’s to venture too far or too often from home. Having four cats, does not make it easy for us to be away for lengthy periods of time. The wedding that I have been talking about for several months took place on Saturday. Our experience of staying in a beach community was delightful. We were just minutes away from the beach and there were all kinds of specialty food choices. If it had not been for my walking I surely could have come home pounds heavier. I don’t know how Anthony Bourdain manages to keep his weight down, but, I most certainly would have major issues with the scale if I traveled the world sampling food. Today, I have been basking in a state of images in my mind. Maybe kind of looking like this Sea Lion as it chills and perhaps is mulling over the days events.
All the images, as I see them, are as a patchwork quilt. Different colors from the sunsets, the blue of the ocean, the tan of the sandy beach, the vast colors of life. My husband’s little girl, in his eyes, only, became a Mrs., and her dream wedding was picture perfect and just as she had planned and hoped for.
