WEEKLY PHOTO CHALLENGE: RESOLVED

Out with the old, in with the new. 2013…

The old tree moves out and makes room for new growth

The old tree moves out and makes room for new growth

In looking up the definition of  “resolved” I found this:

1. firm in purpose or intent; determined.

PERFECT!

RESOLVED:  I am determined to be kinder to myself and others around me.

This may not seem like a big deal to you, but, to this girl it’s HUGE.

Me:  I’ve always been tough on myself, or so I hear.   I need to work on that, HARD.

Others:  I come off as obstinate and opinionated. I’ve got a very bad delivery.  That needs work, too. 🙂

I can do this!

WEEKLY PHOTO CHALLENGE – DELICATE

A while back, I went out to the garage and lifted the door with the intent to retrieve my car.  My husband had left his motorcycle helmet on my son’s soccer net that was situated behind the vehicle.  Imagine my surprise when I spotted this nestled in the helmet.  There was no way I was going to disturb this delicate situation.  Instead, every couple of days, camera in hand, I chronicled the birth of these baby robins.  Our garage had been broken into and a window that hadn’t been fixed yet made a great entrance for the momma bird.

The photos aren’t the best, but it was tough trying to focus with the momma squawking at me every day.  Obviously, the helmet had been rendered useless, and since I don’t know nothing ’bout birthin’ no babies, I let nature take it’s course. The delicate little bird below was injured after his siblings had flown the coop.  This little guy was stuck in the soccer net.  I pulled on a pair of gloves and tried to free him, but he struggled so.  You can see the wing on the left was most certainly not as it should have been.  I went inside to get a blanket, but when I returned, he was gone.  I searched and searched and all I can hope is that he hid himself in the bushes, away from any prowling cats or other predators.

Nature has its own delicate way of taking care of things.  I can only hope he made it to safety.

WEEKLY PHOTO CHALLENGE – CHANGING SEASONS

Living in New Jersey can be a challenge in itself.  From soaring taxes that can rival the heights of Mt. Everest, to blazing hot, humid summers that have you begging for an arctic blast.   But you can’t beat Jersey’s changing  seasons.  Nature at it’s best. Most certainly some of God’s best work.

Thanks for stopping by, liking, commenting, browsing.  I appreciate every click of the mouse, every tap on the keys, every smart phone visit.  I don’t always say so, but the intent is there.  Blogging. Dang!  If only there were 48 hours in the day.

WEEKLY PHOTO CHALLENGE – GREEN

My license says my eyes are green.  In reality, they’re hazel, but I LOVE GREEN.  I figured I could get away with it.  So far, so good.

WordPress has assigned my favorite color to the challenge this week.  I dug up a little bit of green, and I think I only have one Christmas tree photo! And even that one is just part of a tree.

Here I am, goin’ green…

Stop by the WordPress site and see more ‘green’.

WEEKLY PHOTO CHALLENGE – RENEWAL

The WordPress Challenge for this week is Renewal.  I researched a few definitions of the word because so many things come to mind.  These are some of what I found.

to make like new : restore to freshness, vigor, or perfection –  Like restoring or ‘renewing’ a room.

Yes, that’s me. Helping with the demolition of my son’s bedroom. In the process of renewing…

Then there’s:

to make new spiritually – Depending on your beliefs, this could mean different things to different people.

Surround yourself with positive thinking, Mirth and Motivation, and inspiration – exercise for both the body and the soul.

And then we have these:

to make extensive changes in – rebuild

to begin again

Renewal that brings to mind the recent destruction caused by Hurricane Sandy at home in New Jersey, as well as New York, Pennsylvania, and Delaware. There’s much to be done, but with fabulous attitudes, good spirits, and great neighbors, friends, and strangers alike, it will all be rebuilt and renewed.  Maybe better than new!

Here is my hope.  No matter what you’re working on, whether it be rebuilding, restoring, replenishing, or renewing, that your success is as great as your mind could ever imagine.

If nature can succumb to the changes in the weather and then be renewed once again to it’s original beauty, then we can learn from her and do the same.

to become new or as new

Click here and be inspired.

WEEKLY PHOTO CHALLENGE – FOREIGN

Here in the good ol’ U S of A, my vehicle would be considered “foreign”.   Well, be that as it may,  this American LOVES her “foreign” car.

I first purchased a ’65 foreigner in 1968. It was a blue four-speed VW Bug.  Now that, at the time, was “foreign” to me.  I didn’t know the first thing about driving that thing.  But I took to the hills, literally, and learned real fast about how to use an emergency break when the nose of my stick shift sweety was pointed at a 30 degree angle.

Since then, I’ve owned a ’61 bug, a 70 Karmen Ghia, a 64 VW bus (ahhhhh, memories!) and now, introducing, ta-da, my lastest “foreign’ car – my 2003 VW convertible beetle.  Ain’t she sweet?  🙂

 

And this girl goes nowhere without her trusty sidekick, Minkey the monkey.  I’m not sure, but I think he might be foreign, too.  He’s got that adorable, exotic, dark, handsome look about him.  😆

Click here for more foreign adventures.  Thanks to WordPress and Sara Rosso for a new, fun challenge.
