Celebrations Anyway I Can


  This weekend I celebrate with Ruth Ayres at Discover Play Build.  and link with others who share their celebrations, too. I am grateful to Ruth for starting this meme that offers a place to share!

      There have been good moments in this week, but it's been a hard week with the goodbye of a dear grand-dog and the RNC convention chaos, and me hoping that people will see the truth of this nominee and celebrate keeping the democracy we have.

My usual celebrations hold family times, family adventures, good books and walks seeing the beauty of nature. My son, daughter-in-law and grandson are off in Scandinavia with their close friends, having a marvelous time. The granddaughters were with me twice this week, playing in the front yard giving me songs and dances, and then Friday their performance on a big stage as a finale from our Denver Center for the Performing Arts acting camp. The pictures from that are terrible, so not posting, but it was great seeing all the small plays from Kindergarten to Fifth Grade, making music and words come alive! One lovely part of this week was being with my writing group, great talk and support for our work!

  1. Oh, I love the picture of the grands crossing the water! I'm tuning out the news, Linda and just hoping for the best - it helps not to have TV and spotty wi-fi service. I'm also plotting a farm reunion time with you and Elsie and anyone else who'd like to come. Interested?

  2. I love your pictures. I wish I could have seen the kids' performance. I recently attended our youth musical here in town. It was so well done and the kids gave it their all. Have a great week. I highly recommend farm time.

  3. The pictures bring out the feeling of celebration- the exuberance of the girls, the abundance of flowers, the sturdiness of the tree trunk, the surprise of a bunny in the grass, and the inviting coolness of the bench in the shade. I'm glad you take time to notice and share through your photography.

  4. I'm sorry you have lost a beloved family pet and I am emotionally exhausted by the political scene right now. I'm glad you also had some very positive things happening this week. The pictures are lovely. Nature can sure be an excellent way to find peace and healing - I'm sure granddaughters can too. :)

  6. The pictures tell the story of your week of celebrations, Linda. No words are really needed. The beauty of nature and "play" are evident in each one.

  7. Somehow, I never got by last week. Love all these pics, especially the rabbit. And of course those grand girls on the stepping stones, the sunflowers and the shaded bench. This week has been so much better. I didn't watch much of the RNC, but was glued to the TV every night this week.
