Optimistic Smile

IPad pictures 367

Weekly Photo Challenge

Few things in the world are more powerful than a positive push, a smile, a world of optimism and hope, a ‘you can do it’ when things are tough.

My smiling bear picture was taken on one of my visits to Dartmoor zoo in Devon, England.

Feb Photo Challenge 26 – Bear

20140226-205623.jpg

I was really struggling with what to blog today. In looking through my photos I came across this picture of the big brown bear that lives at Dartmoor Zoo, Devon.

Now I chose a bear because I am feeling a bit like a grumpy bear, I’m tired, and very stiff. I’m not sure why, it’s just one of those day where you feel like frowning at everything and telling everyone to bugger off, which is hard to do in the job that I do!

On the bright side, in this picture I notice our grizzly bear has a little smile, so maybe if he can find his smile I might find mine somewhere! X

Feb Photo Challenge 11 – Knit One, Pearl One

20140211-164007.jpg

A friend at work today gave me a present, he thought that it was going to a be a joke present, but actually it was quite fun!

He gave it to me because of me recently becoming unexpectedly a young grandparent. He thought I could spend my evenings under my blanket, with a hot water bottle, hot cocoa, Taggert on the TV, furry slippers, hair in rollers, doing my knit one, pearl one!

Well sadly enough I do do some of those activities already! And as you can see in the picture above, I thought I would remember how to cast on and do my first row! I’m not quite sure what it’s going to be yet, and to be fair the colour of the wool is yuk! But I might sit here and knit a couple more rows in a minute.

Sad really! This age thing, or the perception of age! What’s that all about?

Feb Photo Challenge 9 – Winters Day

20140209-175537.jpg

Firstly, I’m a bit chuffed with myself that I’m on day nine of my challenge and I haven’t missed a day yet! Which is quite good for me because usually life takes over.

I’m feeling exhausted today, got a real Sunday feeling. Still have to do usual Sunday jobs.

What’s your usual Sunday jobs?
Mine, bins, washing, hoovering, washing and more washing! Lots of muddy towels and clothes at the moment! …. Oh and yes, walking the pooch!

I thought this picture sums up the day really, a typical winters day. This is another beautiful picture my OH took.

Note to OH when you read this…..start taking some pictures again, get your camera out of the cupboard, cos I’m missing your lovely pictures!

Love ya! X

Feb Photo Challenge 8 – Dotty

20140208-212937.jpg

Went this evening to visit my granddaughter, and my son of cause, he took this picture of her doing her first ballet pose! Obviously takes after her nana! (Still a bit weird saying that)

Her first tooth has just pushed through and is now standing up around the furniture, as you can see!

See you tomorrow! X

School holidays must be here, I’m posting on my blog!

It has been a bit of a stressful time of late and I am not quite ready to be telling the world why yet, but it will come!

As usual I have nothing profound or life changing to say, but I just wanted to touch base with you all (touch base? What’s that saying all about)

The picture above is from Dartmoor zoo, of the beautiful tigers there! OH took some great pictures!

Take some time for yourself today!
When was the last time you noticed the sound of your own breathing? X
