Weekly Photo Challenge: Humanity

Ok….I was determined to post a picture this week for the photo challenge because I’ve been slacking off on this lately, but I just can’t find a good picture!

I’ve been searching and searching and I just can’t find one.

You see, I usually don’t take pictures of random people.  I just don’t feel comfortable asking, and I still haven’t figured out the technique of taking a picture on the “down low”.

I almost gave up on the whole thing and was going to wait for the next challenge, but then I decided I would do something a little different.  Because sometimes, different is just fun.

And this is what I came up with.

Breakfast that should probably not be consumed by all or any of humanity!!

Sorry I don’t have a picture of this, but seriously, who eats this for breakfast?!


Dessert, well maybe, but not for breakfast. 🙂

Hopefully, I will do much better on the next challenge.  I know that there are a lot of great photos out there on this current challenge, so go ahead, take a look…they won’t disappoint you!


Thankful Thursday: 3 gifts tasted

3 gifts tasted

1. Breakfast …. It’s one of my favorite meals of the day! I’m especially thankful for the moments when we go out to eat breakfast and taste wonderful meals like this. French toast stuffed with strawberries and cream.  Decadent and delicious. I’m truly thankful that I tasted this 🙂

2. I’m thankful my daughter introduced me to this delicious granola.  Homemade, and oh so delicious. I’ve tasted a lot of others….but I like mine the best! Strawberries from my garden…homemade granola….and vanilla yogurt. A much healthier version of breakfast number 1 🙂

3. I’m pretty sure he’s thankful that he tasted this little bit of chocolate goodness.  I know that I was very thankful for this moment, and the opportunity that I had to share it with him.

These are just a few of the things that I am oh so thankful for on this Thankful Thursday!

Some days it can be a little hard to find something to be thankful for…but if I look hard enough, I find that there is always something to be thankful for.  


“I’m actually muttering to myself, ‘Thank you. . .thank you. . . thank you.’ It’s an odd way to live. But also kind of great and powerful. I’ve never before been so aware of the thousands of little good things, the thousands of things that go right every day.” ~ A.J. Jacobs
