Today’s Photo A Day challenge prompt is “Full”.  I took this picture of a fern leaf today, full of seeds and ready to reproduce.

21 march 21 full

My day started out with toasted Little Big Bread with light cream cheese and avocado.

This is Richard, he lives in our neighborhood, and I often see him when I’m walking to work.  Today, he asked me to take his picture.  (he’s done that before)  Interesting guy….

I met Matthew,  a very very old friend/former colleague for lunch today.  We bumped into each other a few weeks ago, and met up for lunch.  We’ve both come a long way in life, but we just picked up where we left off so long ago, and had a good catch up.  I had kale and quinoa salad…

Later in the afternoon, I had this little chocolate on a stick.  It was a gift from one of my current colleagues, because apparently, I did something that made me a “star”.  It’s a stretch….

After work, I went for a walk around the neighborhood.  To find a photo for “full” and to get some exercise.  I miss my walks if I don’t have one.  That’s a good thing….walking has become a habit.   Here are a few shots:

Our quirky sand scuplting neighbor is making a series of what looks like the characters in Despicable Me.  I’ll take photos and update as they come to life.

If anyone has lost a soother, a screwdriver or a set of keys, let me know.  I found them.  :)

When I got home, Dennis and I toasted the weekend with a glass of red wine and a few chips and dip.
