Windy Fog & Duck Faces :)

Happy Friday, Everyone! I’m grateful for every day, but I can’t deny how glad I am when Friday rolls around. Anyway, for some “end of week” smiles, I’m sharing just a few photos taken yesterday at the Marin Headlands with my daughter and our dog, Copper…It was real foggy and super windy, but we still had a fun time. Although, I think Copper had had enough of the wind. 🙂 Gorgeous views even in the fog, which adds mystery to the photo, I think..you’ll see the Golden Gate bridge is trying to push through and make itself known and the sky couldn’t have been bluer. The last photo is Copper and I making duck faces, while my daughter looks beautiful. 🙂golden gate in the fog

Friday Photo Fun! :)

Copper (our lab) and I recently went on one of our “water tank” hikes. Though we’ve done this many times, I still take more pictures. How many photos can one have of the same location? Well, I guess many, if you try for new angles. It’s kind of like an addiction, but a healthy one. The hike is uphill from our house and we ended up with tall grass hugging us while walking on thin trails and all I could think about were ticks. Copper stays on flea and tick medication but once in awhile, they still manage to get on him.
Luckily, when we got home he was tick free and so was I! 🙂

I’m also including some flowers from our yard.
It’s coming back to life
now that Copper is getting a little older and less mischievous. 🙂

before we did. 🙂

HAPPY FRIDAY!  ♥

Friday Flora & Fun

In my last post, I mentioned that I’ve always loved taking photos. So I’m sharing some flowers for your Friday, though they are amateur. Currently, my only camera is my iPhone, which isn’t the best, but it works for me and is easy! 🙂 Along with the flora, I’ll add a little rhyming fun for this day and I hope you enjoy!

Today is great
for happy dancing and
jolly singing, too – ♫
not only for a Friday,
any day will surely do!

ARE MAGNIFIED THROUGH WORRIES –

CARRY ON AND TRUDGE!

This is an oldie, but I thought to share again for some Friday encouragement.
May your day and weekend be filled with lots of fun and smiles!
This is the first weekend since the new year that I’ve been healthy,
so I’m truly smiling. 🙂
Sending hugs and blessings to you all!

Calm and Crazy

Hello All!

Once again, I’m behind on reading all of your wonderful blog posts.
I’ve been working on a project, which is consuming most of my time.

I haven’t written any new poems
and actually, I need to get inspired
I can’t re-post forever!
Anyway, the real busy part should be ending soon and I’ll be
visiting you again and trying to catch up a little.

To end your week, I’m sending some “calm” to soothe your “crazy.”

Have a wonderful Friday and weekend! 
Lauren ♥
