Where Be Ye Treasure

After walking a mile or so, our walk ended at a beach.  There was sand and seagulls aplenty, then, she rose into view from the distance, the ship.  A pirate ship.  Yay hey no way!  What more could a little pirate princess want?  She broke into a Jake And The Neverland Pirates song and boarded the vessel to take over as captain of the great ship.

It's not a merry-go-round but it is pretty awesome!

Just One More Slide

After about 5 weeks of me being sick, we finally got back to the business of having fun.  Spring is in full swing now, actually today it's about 85 degrees and feeling like summer, but tomorrow spring weather will be back. It was a good day, lots of nature, a little fishing, and of course the slides and swings.  That final pout, was the just one more slide look before we had to go and the one more slide turned into two slides and a "I don't want to leave" from her.  I didn't want to leave either and hope to get back there soon.

Thank You

Thank you, thank you, thank you to those who have either here or elsewhere online wished me well.  Your kindness is soooo appreciated.  I can't tell you what it means to me to read your notes.  I was given what they tell me is the strongest antibiotics, along with other meds, on Monday and they are starting to work!  In fact, today, I was craving my camera.  My sweet husband dragged a tall chair over to our sliding glass doors so I could sit there and take photos of birds.  It was such a wonderful sound to hear the camera click again!  The antibiotics I'm on don't allow me into the sun but I have to say that being just out of the sun's reach at the door was like heaven to me because it has been so gray and rainy here!  I'm not sure I helped myself by doing this because all I can think about now is how bad I want to get out there and play with the camera totally immersed in nature.  I guess it's excellent motivation to get better fast.

A Decision

Some of you know I have been sick for 3 weeks.  Friday night I spent in urgent care and radiology where I found out that I have pneumonia in both lungs.  They say it's the worst they've seen this whole cold and flu season and they weren't sure how I was still walking around, when I do something I do it big lol!  Needless to say I haven't taken any photos since whatever that last day was that I posted and unless these antibiotics start working soon, I don't feel up to taking any for a while.  Although, tomorrow I have another appointment where I've been told I will get the strongest antibiotics, woohoo!  So, that brings me to this decision.  Obviously I have screwed up project 365 and quite honestly, it's a relief.  I made it through 1 year and that was what I had originally intended.  From this point, this will no longer be 365.  I will continue to post photos, maybe even at times nearly every day, but it will be as they come.  No more forcing myself outside when I'm sick, no more going through the motions when I can't see the beauty and light.  This will be a place I post what I think is beautiful, little bits of my soul, and the magic I see through the lens.  I hope you will enjoy the photos and I am looking forward to being able to start this new blogging experience.
