Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge: Furniture, Tables, Chairs, Sofa, etc.

This (last) week’s theme for Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge was Furniture, Tables, Chairs, Sofa. I tried to think outside the box for this one.

Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge: Glasses, Cups, Saucers

This week’s theme for Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge is Glasses, Cups, Saucers. How I’m spending my days is showing up by the growing presence of kid stuff in my pictures. 🙂 It makes writing a bit tricky but my days are full!

I find sippy cups to be a new staple in my decorating. They brighten up any room-any place. They are equally as cheerful sitting on a table or half hidden under the couch. I often find one sitting on my laptop keyboard.

This is one of the first photos I shared in a challenge!

What better way to cool off and relax! Iced tea, lemonade or shandy, anyone?

Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge: All One Color

So, I’m here for Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge: All One Color, after emerging briefly last week from the grips of a killer sinus infection….. I was sick (still) with added side effects of the antibiotics. (The coughing, fever, aching, nose-blowing, never-ending mucus was not enough, so the addition of gastrointestinal issues was JUST what I needed to make the experience complete!) I’m not through with it quite yet- and I’m not going to hold out any hopes that this is over (after all, I’ve only been under the weather for a month now) but at least a good many of the symptoms and side effects are gone. And I’m hoping this isn’t another ‘flash in the pan’ appearance.

#AtoZChallenge D is for Dreams

“Go confidently in the direction of your dreams! Live the life you’ve imagined.” – Henry David Thoreau

My oldest son dreamed of becoming a firefighter when he grew up. And he did.

Learning did not come easy to him and he worked hard to earn each and every good grade he received. When he hit his teen years, things got rocky, as they sometimes do with teenagers. I worried. He tested boundaries. We made it through.

And a week after he graduated from high school, he began the EMT program. After working as an EMT  for a few years, he got into the Paramedic program and became a certified paramedic. With his end goal in sight, he was trained in the fire academy and was hired as a firefighter-paramedic just two years ago. He continues to study and added Engineer to his certifications.

He had a dream, he worked his butt off to achieve it, and I am in awe of him. He is an inspiration to anyone who thinks that their dreams are beyond their reach and I couldn’t be prouder of him.

This post is working double-duty today and piggy-backing onto Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge: Summer/Fire.
