Hello OLTL Readers!!
Do you ever just get the feeling to pack a bag and jump on a plane to anywhere? The daily grind of work, eat, sleep and back to work again was finally taking its toll on me and I needed a break from it all. Well, I did just that.On March 16th, I found myself toting two full packed suitcases with as many summer outfits I could find in my closet and strolling into the airport.
“Good afternoon ladies and gentlemen. This is your captain speaking and welcome aboard…” Before I knew what happened next I was sound asleep.
Within a few short hours I was in beautiful Miami!! Even though it is was cloudy, I could still feel the warmth in which the city greeted me. Ahhhh!!
More to come on this adventure!! So stay tuned!
Nothing beats an early morning walk!
After work yesterday, I went to visit a friend who was going out of town on vacation. We ran a few errands to prepare for the trip. On our little venture, we stopped at the light by a market that was selling fruit outside. I love fruit but I had no intensions of stopping. We were on a mission. But it was the wagon-like cart that caught my eye. It’s nothing new or amazing profound but I just liked the assembly of the fruit display. So that is the story behind the photo.
My friend is happily enjoying a vacation in mountains while I’m now having a craving for fruit. Man… I should of bought some fruit! Next time I’ll definitely stop for some fruit.
In keeping with Sunday’s theme, this photo was taken with my Canon right before the rain came. I am sure this footprint has been washed away.
Today was a beautiful day for a walk so I drove out to the pond. I know, you thought I walked; I did but just a few blocks. Due to the radiating pain, I had to turn around and head for the car. I felt a bit defeated because it was only last week that I began to feel less pain but more importantly, I was able to walk to the pond on my own. Today was the first day I really thought of my situation. This time last year, I was able to walk 6 miles easily and now I can’t. I walked slowly across to the pond. I saw a father teaching his young daughter how to walk. It was such a beautiful scene that tears welled up in my eyes. I stood and watched for a while. I thought maybe I needed to take baby steps to recovery and stop putting so much pressure on myself. Who knew a little toddler and her father, who I have not had the pleasure of meeting, would be the teacher of today’s life cleanse lesson.
The above photo was taken while at the pond. Somehow I felt better after leaving the pond. As I started the car and headed for home, I began to smile to myself.

Today’s Photos: Nature’s Little Wonders
Hello everyone!! My early evening walk went well today, even though I really didn’t want to go; I went with my health in mind. A little determination was all I needed to get going. I managed to walk an extra eight minutes without pain. Hooray!! My total walk was 39 minutes… well not including the time I took to take the photos. So I guess it was an hour. HOORAY!!
I am sure I’ll regret it in the morning but it will be well worth it because when I uploaded the photos, I was even happier that I decided to go for the walk. Smiles all around! The colors were captured beautifully. I hope that you enjoy them as I much do!
That’s it you say… Okay there will be a part two tomorrow! Until then…
Live Life… Respect Life…Enjoy Life!!

It has been unseasonably warm for a few days and now has finally gotten cold. The back and forth is confusing my immune system. This morning my throat began to feel a bit sore. I immediately drank two glasses of orange juice and went in search for cold medicine. I haven’t had a cold for two or three years and wasn’t looking forward to getting one. These will make me feel better; each and every one of those pretty little pellets!
Still exploring with macro photography…I think I will venture to a new technique tomorrow… stay tuned!
