I expect good things everyday

I acknowledge the good things and unexpected surprises that happen in each of my days.

For example, yesterday I got a call from the Fed Ex pick up centre that my shoes from the Netherlands arrived. The delivery date was stated for July 3rd (6 days from now) and it showed up June 28. Happy I was! I wanted to wear them for the July 1st long weekend festivities!


I came home tired and grumpy after sitting in the doctors office for an hour and a half and then buying groceries just before the long weekend started. I sat down on the deck and peeked over to my little flower bed below and my peony bush had one bud that refused to bloom the last couple of weeks. I thought it was dying. It had bloomed.

Three days ago, I shared my biography/memoir that I had written, of my son, who passed away 15 years ago. I shared it with a good friend who also lost her son several years ago. The reward and surprise that I received from her was a good thing. She read the biography and responded with such understanding I was in tears with gratitude. I was not expecting this surprise.

Expect good surprises!

too many photos

I have been searching for all my digital photos I have taken and stored on websites over the years. There were many on Flickr photography gallery and my other blogger.com blog. I even think Picasa has some too. I have switched laptops several times and tried to keep them all. It was too confusing with all the different places to store. iCloud is helpful at times.

I am still searching and Picasa is the next on-line search. My photos before 2016 are lost. Google photos has taken over the control on Picasa now. Taking snaps is a snap in this instantaneous world we are in. How to keep track? How many storage places? I miss the photo scrapbook when it comes to retrieving the pictures of long ago. I have a storage of many photo books in my wall unit as well.

Here is a photo I found in Picasa/Google photos. It’s me back in 2011 and here I am so wanting to publish a book that I picked up a self publishing guide. I wanted to be a writer. I still do. What a good surprise! I will publish my writings it is written in the stars now.

Finding photos is so wonderful and it can remind you of things or events you stopped doing or wanting but now you can get back to them. Life distracts! Can never have too many photos.

cannot get enough of our Orioles this year

I am comfortable being uncomfortable!

I am an 11 year experienced blogger on the blogging site of blogger.com here is the link kirkville acreage about my acreage life in south west Saskatchewan and art and my grief journey.

This is a new process. I have paid for the personal plan with WordPress and I have a new domain name. I weigh heavy on the word paid because that was holding me back from doing this website and posting so new readers will enjoy or learn from what I share. If I do not invest I won’t get the appropriate help.

I want lots of photography on here and horses and inspirational photos I snap myself.

I am subscribed to the website The Art of Blogging.

I am open and available to get some good tips on how to present a new website with words and language that new readers with attract too from this website.

I just read the latest post and it says always create a good headline before you start writing the post. True. To pick a good headline or title for the post is the most fun! It will keep me on track with what I want the post to do for the reader.

Are you an experienced website owner? Do you blog? or Vlog. I can do videos on my youtube channel but I want to just photo snap and chat here and learn from you, the reader, and get a smile on your face or connect with me from my photography.

I want to place a photo on this post? I never write without one. First time for everything and out of my comfort zone. I am comfortable being uncomfortable here.
