It Doesn’t Take Much

I took these pictures in our back yard earlier today.


It doesn’t take much to appreciate the fact that change is on the way.

My Sincere Apologies

I would like to take this time to give my sincere apologies to those who took the time to read and comment on my poem If Time Did Stop. I had received an email of another comment and when I went to reply, I noticed my previous comments and replies were gone. I went to my dashboard and there were no signs that they were ever there.


I had been using Intensedebate because of the threaded comment and reply format. But after the loss of the comments and replies and since Blogger has implemented their change in the comments I find necessary to make the change. 


I’m not bashing Intensedebate because I’m sure there are many satisfied users out there. Like any software, glitches do happen.


Again, my sincere apologies to those who did read and comment. 

Come And Sit A Spell

If Betty Boop can stop in for a spell, I’m sure you can too.

Challenges

A thought just came to me concerning challenges…several thoughts actually. 


Sometimes we seem to feel we are challenged and in some cases we are put on the defensive because we may feel it was unjust, creating emotions built on anger.


There are times when stuff pops up when we least expect it and that could cause anxiety…which in turn will bring thoughts that are not quite clear because we don’t have the desire to deal with anything.


Then there are challenges that push us…make us work, think, have that feeling of accomplishment. 


So what are the underlying factors behind challenges? Are they tests? Do they come to consume ones very being? Are they meant to build?…or destroy. 


Challenges come in all facets through life. We cannot avoid them. One thing they can do at times… frustrate. But I believe in the long run, that builds character.


My vote goes to challenges being an integral part of life unavoidable….like it or not…and whether I like them or not, they teach me and I learn and from that comes growth.


I guess it’s all in how you look at it.


Whatr U Workin On?  

Sunday Morning Ride

It’s really been hot the past few days and I had decided not to ride my bike. Today it’s a bit cooler in the mornings, which I prefer to ride, so off I go.

This is my first pit stop along the way.

This is Town Center of Virginia Beach. It’s a nice area with places to eat, areas to sit outside and enjoy the view or your company. It can get pretty busy here.

Here I arrive at my destination…Mount Trashmore. For those who don’t know, it is a landfill converted into a park…a rather nice one at that.

This is the Mount Trashmore emblem located at the top of the hill. You can find kite flyers here during windy times. Lots of people use the hill for working out. The guy on the left for example is walking backward down the hill. Some jog all the way around the top instead of using the path.

I’m not sure if they are together, but backward they go.

Of course we can’t forget the children who want to enjoy the play area before the sweltering heat sets in.

Here I have my stuff set up after the ride around the park after arriving, preparing for this post. It is a really nice breeze blowing to help squash the heat. I’m gonna be heading back after I post this. It’s about fifteen miles round trip. This is my second trek here since I got the bike.

Time to head back….

A Good Day

After realizing this morning I had gotten up for work and didn’t need to because I had the day off, it took me awhile to settle in. 


It was like my mind and body had to make the adjustment….weird. I thought that after knowing I can relax, I would feel like I usually do on a day off.


I tried to get a little more sleep this morning but that wasn’t going to happen, but I was able to nap around 1:00…just a cat nap. 


I reinstalled some software on the pc.


I did some window shopping online for some pc components. I wondered which would be better right now to cut cost, an uprade or a laptop. I have to research that. I will eventually get a laptop. I like that the lap will be portable. 


If I upgrade the pc first, I want to get a touch screen monitor to get the full effect of Windows 7. 


We’ll see.


I made a point of doing as little as possible today and I do believe I succeeded. 


Oh, I almost forgot… the party pictures are on Darcel’s facebook page, so I won’t link there, but I will link to her post for Nakiah’s birthday. 


That’s all I have for now except that,    


Today was a good day.
