1/365 Live, Love and Bark in 2018

Grateful for a new year full of exciting possibilities! 

I'm baaaacccckkkk! I'll be posting my 365 this year with a 6 week backlog of daily pictures which, I hope, will keep me ahead of the game. This means some of you will have seen some of these on other social media outlets, and some holidays and such will be a bit out of whack.  I'm hoping this gives me the room to be able to get posts up in a timely manner. 

I'll also be captioning these with a thought on what I am grateful for on the given day(which I am shamelessly "borrowing" from K-10). This year looks to be full of both exciting and, most likely, stressful times. By centering myself each day with a photo of something I'm grateful for,  I hope to focus more on the exciting and be able to better deal with the stressful!

Thanks for your patience and understanding for taking some unexpected time off for the past few months!

FFF-A Walk in the Sun

After being cooped up in the snow and ice all winter, the sun felt wonderful warming my face as I made my way along the trail. The chickadees danced in and out of the trail looking for grit and the geese honked their greetings as they flew overhead.

As I turned the next bend, I was surprised to see a Great Heron carefully making its way in the field beside me. I watched her for awhile as she hunted in the grass, appreciating her grace, before I continued along the trail.

I wandered over to the marsh to continue my walk, when I came across a Turkey Vulture with a wing span that reminded me of huge elephant ears! He turned to give me a look saying, "You looking at Me?" reminding me of DeNiro's famous line from Taxi Driver.

As I made my way back home, I pondered how freeing life as a bird must be. The freedom to pick up and fly away when the seasons change, to soar above the water feeling the wind in your feathers and to feel the sun on your beak as you bask in the morning sun...

San Francisco!

Vineyard Closeups

 He makes grass grow for the cattle, 
and plants for people to cultivate 
bringing forth food from the earth:

Wine that gladdens human hearts, 
oil to make their faces shine, 
and bread that sustains their hearts.
Psalm 104:14-15

Ceramic Stairway

I really love finding hidden stairways. I came across this one while walking down one of the side streets in Carmel...the beautiful tile design along with the detailed railings beckoned my camera!
