A new day, a new beginning! (WPC – Rise/Set)

A new day brings a new beginning. A day to begin a new project, a day to begin planning a new adventure, or sometimes it’s simply a day to keep putting one foot in front of the other.

In the encouraging words of my darling mother… sometimes you just have to live each day to spite those who don’t want you to. My mother, our very own ray of sunshine!🙃

Rise/Set is this week’s Photo challenge from The Daily Post. Be sure to click on the icon below to see more fabulous interpretations of this week’s challenge.

Live each day! (WPC – I’d rather be…)

I’d Rather Be… grateful for each day lived, a life filled with beautiful sights, smells and experiences…

then regretting what has been or might have been, or even what should be!

Transported to another place (WPC: Out of this World)

Driving across central Iceland is like driving nowhere else in the world. Particularly in the dead of winter with a setting sun. Dormant volcanic mounds dot the landscape in every direction. The road the only evidence of man’s existence.

There was a rumor going around when we lived there, that this is where NASA would send it’s astronauts to get a sense of what it would be like on the moon. We believed it!

Out of This World is the current challenge of The Daily Post Weekly Photo Challenge.

The Jumping Rabbit (WPC – Variations on a Theme)

This restaurant’s exterior really caught my eye as we strolled through the streets of old Quebec City. Its whimsy reminded me so much of all the shenanigans of Peter Rabbit.

If only we’d had time to have a meal at this restaurant then I could have seen if this truly was inspired by Beatrix Potter or it was simply my imagination running wild.

The Daily Post Photo Challenge this week is Variations on a Theme.

Decaying Beauty (WPC – Weathered)

This very weathered wall in Tallinn, Estonia intrigued me immensely with its varying degrees of texture. At first glance this wall highlights years of neglect – yet at the same time it highlights what was once years of care.

Weathered is this week’s Weekly Photo Challenge from The Daily Post.

 

 

 

 

 

Lopsided Growth (WPC: Growth)

This young lad had us smiling out loud when he stopped by Christmas morning to complete our picture of a white, albeit a very light white, Christmas complete with (rein)deer. Bless him, the lone antler lad.

Growth is this week’s Daily Post Photo Challenge.

 

 

 

 

My Island Serenity (WPC – Serene)

No matter what has transpired, or unfortunately hasn’t transpired during the day, being able to look out the window to witness Mother’s Nature’s closing act on the day brings about a calmness, a serenity like no other for me.

Evenings like this provide a wonderful reminder that no matter how wonderful or how frustrating today was, it was but just one day. Tomorrow the sun will rise again bringing with it another day of new beginnings.

Serene is The Daily Post Weekly Challenge for this week!
