Gratitude List 151-160

Feeling a little....cranky these days. I probably need to fit in more bike rides to clear my mind and burn nervous energy. But most of all I think I need to stop and take tabs on what I have to be thankful for. I haven't added to my gratitude list for so long and so it is time.

151. My husband's patience with me when I am working through stuff and not myself.

152. A job I enjoy and the most perfect co-worker. I work with great people.

153. Thankful for texts or calls from my kids who are so far away.

154. Skype - it allowed my 9 month old grand daughter to remember me after not actually "seeing" me for over five months. And when you are nine months old, that is a long time. But she smiled and came right to me. Thankful for skype.

155. Thankful for my new camera and lenses that I am so enjoying.

156. Rooibus tea. Finally something I enjoy drinking that I CAN drink. And add to that Silk Soya Milk.

157. My computer and printer and talent from Him that make helping make my friends wedding invitations such an easy task.Thankful for opportunity to show His love.

158. Climbing into clean fresh sheets on my bed, listening to a thunder storm out my window and reading Phillipeans. It is a great way to end the day.

159. Ever changing but incredibly wonderful prairie skies. I could photograph them every night - but then you might get bored.

160. A son who shares my passion for photography.

Butchart Gardens

I am overflowing with photos for the 365 so I will show them to you here. I spent a wonderful few hrs at the Butchart Gardens today. It was way too short. You need three hrs to really see all the beauty and our bus driver demanded we be back in 1.5 hrs.... Never do stuff like this on a tour - drive out yourself and take it all in according to your schedule. If I have time I might just go back with a few more lenses and my Sherpa to carry them....

Special Request

I took a 365 photo some time ago of one of my clients. I am working on a special project at work and we are preparing a presentation which will involve photos of the people involved in out project. The family gave me permission to post the photo on my 365. Today they asked me to re-post it as there were many family members wanting to see a photo of "Pops!"
So here is Pops and his sweetheart of 60 years.
