We’re only here for basically a speck in the time of this world. So while here, we probably should enjoy it, eh?
I’m still slowly working on all the posts for my 50th birthday series (and heck, I have until next September, so …), and I’ve realized how many times that “enjoy life” wasn’t part of my mantra. For whatever time I have left on this Earth, I certainly do want to try and do it a bit more.
So how do you enjoy life?
I find as I get older, it changes for me. I still enjoy some travel, but I do like just being around my area, too. Life can be very simple and enjoyable, that’s for sure.
You know Harper is involved here!
I kind of looked at things a little different when I went through my photos for the month, though. Enjoying life isn’t always just about experiences, but about the people in it as well. It’s the little things that, usually, can make you smile a bit as you go about the daily things in life.
So did you enjoy life this month? I hope you did!
Anyway, onward. Here’s my five for the month! Enjoy!
Harper makes me enjoy life a lot more. She’s with me in many things I do. But for her, enjoying life often includes a stick. This was on a trip to Rhode Island and we had finished a fun hike to my 7,000th geocaching find (more on that below). So she found this glorious stick and chomped away at it for a bit. And the expression I got for this photo made me enjoy it even more.
2. A weekend stroll
Earlier in November, I ran some errands with my mother and we decided it was nice enough out to go for a stroll with Harper on a rail trail. Harper enjoys hanging with her “Gram,” so it’s always nice. This was at the point where we turned around, so I got them together for a photo. (Side note: The bandana Harper is wearing is one my mother made for her)
3. Snip snip!
Cameron gets his hair cut the same day I do and it’s used so I can spend some time with my nephew. Sometimes we go for something to eat after, sometimes not. He got a turkey on the back of his head this time (and there might be a photo for December’s challenge with him in the barber chair again). I enjoy this experience each month or so.
This probably would have been good for February, however … this booth is out at a local pet store and I couldn’t resist taking the photo. Harper’s kisses are definitely a way to enjoy life!
The trip to Rhode Island with a friend and Harper was for geocaching. We wanted to clear the Rhode Island DeLorme challenge, and also allow me to find my 7,000th geocache. We accomplished both, which was great. This was at the final of the DeLorme challenge and marked my milestone find. A nice little hike to the final on a crisp, fall morning.
There’s my five and let’s see what you came up with! If you took part in this month’s challenge, make sure to link up below.
And for those of you who participated, make sure you try and get to other people’s blogs and comment (here, too!).
Let’s continue to grow this challenge and have a strong community. Come back and check out the others who link later on, too! NOTE: We have a Facebook group for those who participate in the challenge and are interested. I’ll post any announcements there and hopefully it can be a place where things are discussed and some interaction etc. You can access it here.
** CHALLENGE CHANGE **
From this point forward, I am going to do the next theme at the bottom of each linkup. Also, the posting date will now be the first of each month, thus giving you the entire month to take the photos etc.
That means it’s a one-stop shop! Hopefully this helps out with everybody.
So, below is the linkup for September. Make sure you drop your link there.
OK, so it’s time to keep on moving! It’s November’s turn! And our theme for the month? Have a very merry … ! I hope you all have fun with this theme! Remember to come back on (hopefully) December 1 to link up and check out the theme for that month!
