Dinosaurs, Moments and Blackberries
A few weeks ago I woke up to a little parade of origami dinosaurs on my table in the family room, I've left them as placed since they blend in. In less than a month, waking up to origami surprises will end. I'm excited for my son's new school year in a new place. Our daughter is also moving in the next few weeks. She's taking the bar exam next week and then we help with the relocating, busy busy busy.
So while there is change going on in their lives, I'm waking up and being present in my life. Yesterday was spectacular weather. I wore a hoodie in the morning on my walk--amazing! Cold fronts in the summer are pockets joy. I'm thankful for the fresh breezes and blue skies.
I won a spot in an ecourse, 28 moments given by Michelle. (thank you Michelle!) I have been thoroughly enjoying this course which is chock full of writing prompts, photography prompts and a private group on Flickr. Originally, I thought I was "too busy" to do a course to stop and notice moments of my life, how wrong! This course is helping me slow down during a busy life. I'm so grateful :)
Leanne wanted a closer look at my vision board in my studio. Mostly the cards are from friends that I thought were pretty.. The top left bookmark was from an independent bookstore that I just LOVED.
The blackberries that grow wild in my backyard lining the woods have ripened. When Frodo and I are out and about we pick them....well, he waits while I pick them. This year, they seem bigger than ever. The past week, I've heard the cicadas humming away and even a lone acorn has fallen on the driveway. The subtle shift has started. I know we have two more months of summer but that lone acorn brought me a sliver of happiness knowing that Autumn is around the corner.
Have a wonderful weekend!
