July 24th will always be an important day in our family. It is my Dad’s birthday, and this is the first July 24th that I haven’t had my Dad here in this life. It is also a year ago today that my Dad fell ill, had multiple and serious seizures, left home in an ambulance, and three weeks later he passed away. We are always grateful for all the birthdays we had with my Dad, for the amazing care he had last year, and for having those precious weeks to spend with him before he died. I think of my Dad EVERY day, and sorely miss him. But today, we celebrate all my Dad was, and his legacy he left us. Happy Birthday Dad! You have left a hole in my heart that will never close, and I am forever grateful and proud to be your daughter! <3!
Today’s Photo A Day Challenge prompt is “reimagine aging”. I used this photo of a woman well into her 50’s, who can turn cartwheels better than most people half her age. Who says you can’t be fit and flexible as you get older???
I posted this feathery cloud, taken yesterday on Only Shades of Gray….
And this is the last photo for minimalist week on 365 Days in Nature.
Here are a few catch up shots from yesterday……
And on to today. My menu was an egg in a sandwich thin (with hot sauce) for breakfast….
…tomato and feta salad, and nugget potatoes and carrots with guacamole for lunch…
…wine with fish (halibut) and chips (nom!) for dinner.
The rain finally came back, and any of us breathed a collective sigh of “yuck, but we really need this. The plants need it, the ecosystems need it…” Here is a big photo dump from my walks today, my cat, other cats for adoption, and store windows/signs that I saw when Dennis and I ran a couple of errands after work.
Have a great weekend everyone!
