Simple Sunday

Leave a comment

The sun in Sunday did appear today and melted that white stuff. Well for the most part, there are some large patches of ground still covered but you can see it won’t be long with the warm temps coming. The snow was pretty to see, we haven’t had that much this year. No time to just burn a day or two or four shoveling and sitting around the house getting cabin fever.

But again we dodge the snow bullet. Lucky us. Seems like the kids certainly have registered some time off despite little accumulation. Safety first is always a good motto but its hard not to reflect on the days waiting at the bus stop in 3-4 inches of snow with more coming down. Such is life, time change, usually for the better but not always.

We are more in charge of this than we like to think. I’m starting to realize everyone can make that difference. And I’m going to get started on doing my part. Well, maybe a little each day as time allows.

The first thing I changed today is not getting enraged on the road. Had two people almost cause accidents today cutting people off at high speeds. I have no idea how one guy missed me but he got a car about a mile up the road that slowed his roll. Going to just try to survive on the road from now on and that means staying away from traffic.

I can’t wait till I have a few minutes to set up that dash cam. Should be fun capturing some of that action.

Also on Monday I hope to get over to the shelter to make a donation to our furry friends. Maybe I’ll grab a few frames while I’m there. I’m having withdraw because my Son was over with his dog on Friday.

And hopefully by the afternoon a little sun will peak out and I’ll have a few minutes to grab some fresh frames to share.

So here’s to a flying start to the week filled with good intentions, positive vibes and plans with friends and family.

Random Thoughts of the Day

I still like using a viewfinder instead of the LED display. Maybe its just habit though?

How does Monday come around several times a week?

Time to turn things the right direction and get photographing again.
