Happy and Grateful – Day 115

We have reached the month of April and I am still on course to post daily with my happiness and gratitude I have found.  Please join in if you feel like doing this too by sharing in the comments or on your own blog.  There is so much to be happy and grateful for.

Well it was a little better today, not as many sneezes but the cough is getting deeper.  I slept really pretty well last night for a change and I know that is bound to help.  I hate being sick!

Aside from being sick… I did have to take my Dad to the clinic for a blood draw.  He was feeling a bit under the weather too still.  So we were quite the pair today.  Luckily it was just the blood work and then I picked up some prescriptions and went home.

I did take a little time to look through a touch of my mounting email I have neglected while I’ve been sick, so I did accomplish something today.  I am happy I can breathe a little easier today.  I am grateful I got a little bit done to match my energy level.  Now if I can get more good sleep tonight maybe I can have an even better day tomorrow.

*And a quick note… as I have been sick (and I just plain forgot yesterday) I will be skipping my Monochrome Monday post this week.  Sorry!

Monochrome Monday – Heavy Metal and Fine Silk

This weeks picture was a contrasting picture that caught my eye walking across a bridge.  The cold hard steel bolts connected by the finest most delicate spider silk… I had to take a picture.  The little details can hide some of the most interesting things if you don’t take the time to look.  Hope you all have a great week!

Monochrome Monday – Inviting Path

I almost forgot it was Monday and I needed to post this… oops!  This is one of my favorite local parks to walk in when I am feeling up to it.  I used to walk here 3 or 4 times a week.  They have garden beds, a wooded path that crosses a creek and lots of people in the summer.  Great place for taking pictures – actually a lot of the local photographers will use it as a backdrop for senior pictures.  I hope you enjoy…

Monochrome Monday – Dainty Daisies

Don’t quote me on flower names… I know these are really wild flowers not daisies.  My mom was the flower expert and could name most of them… me, I know the color and a few basic blooms AND can kill a plant faster than anyone I know LOL!  But I thought these were pretty and captured well in black and white.  Today is a day to take the time to smell the flowers!  🙂

Monochrome Monday – Bursting

Here it is another Monday already and time to dip into my collection of black and white pictures.  Once again I am not sure who to give credit to for the term or challenge idea for Monochrome Mondays but if you know its origins please tell me in the comments.  I hope you enjoy today’s photo…

Monochrome Monday – Rustic Brdge

I am starting something new.  I have seen several posts listed with the title Monochrome Monday and since I love black and white photography I thought I would jump on the band wagon.  I am not sure if there is an actual page that posts a MM challenge – if you know of one please link it in the comments.  I am just kind of going on my own at this point in time but would love to see what some of you have for black and white photos as well.  I can’t guarantee a post every Monday, but I will try.

I am starting out with one of my favorite subject matters, old bridges.  This is a foot bridge at a local park.
