Thankful Thursday (on Friday) &
The Award Ceremony

I'm always confounded that we human beings are so forgetful.  Since the beginning of the year I've been writing down one thing per day that I'm thankful for, no matter how trivial or grand.  Since I returned from Hawaii, I haven't done it once.  I just keep forgetting!

I've heard it said that it takes 21 days to make something a habit.  I wonder who said that, cause it certainly doesn't work that way for me.

Anyway....yesterday (Thursday) I had the opportunity of spending the entire almost the entire day at home, which is the first time I could do that since I returned in May, 27 days ago.  It was glorious.  I caught up on all sorts of things, including trimming a hedge and relaxing.

I didn't exactly lay on the couch all day, like my cat manages to do, but it was still good. Not one of my most creative or imaginative images, but I think you get the point I'm trying to make.

While I was taking photos of the cat, I took a few of my one-and-only-living-plant cause I think it's soooo pretty.  It will be interesting to see how long I can get this plant to survive...

This morning I joined my daughter at school for an award ceremony for the two younger grandkids.  "Did you bring your camera?", she said. "No", I said. "Whaaaattttt???" she said.  Well, not to worry, I have my point and shoot.  

I'm beginning to wonder, whose kids are these anyway, and if they're hers why am I the only one taking pictures?   

The grandson, the tallest one in the pic--is in 4th grade.
The boy next to him is in 4th grade too.  
The one with "smile" on her shirt is in 3rd grade.
She usually not only smiles, but she poses, but this line-up was a
little inhibiting...
The entire group of winners of "artistic" awards.

Bella is so over having her picture taken!

Also, I've heard it takes six weeks to establish a habit, and I believe that from my own experience. (Not sure how related it is, but I also think it's interesting that six weeks is roughly forty days, which is used a lot in the Bible.)

And why would anyone bring their camera to anything if they knew you were coming? Leave it to the professional; that's my reasoning, anyway.
