2 Days ’til 40: 40 Favorite Posts from My 400 Days ’til 40 Journey

I must say that it was much easier to choose 40 photos than to choose 40 posts!  One of the fun things about this particular journey is that I allowed myself to write (or post photos) about whatever I felt on any particular day.  As a result, I have a wide array of followers who each connect in different ways to what I write – this has been amazing.  I imagine that in the future, as I become a bit more focused, I may have a less diverse group of readers, though I hope not!

Here is my top 40 list of posts, hopefully as eclectic as my readers are.  Some I chose because of the importance of the content, some because they make me laugh (yes, I realize that I have a weird sense of humor that others do not always appreciate) and some because I like the way the words flow.

7 Days ’til 40: Defining Love

IMG_6992

Today I have decided to re-post my Valentine’s Day post from last year (373 Days ’til 40: Defining Love), as I believe this is such a critical concept that so many of us still need to grasp (with a few edits).

8 Days ’til 40: Why Can’t I Win the Lottery??!!?? :(

IMG_1383

Yesterday I did not get something I wanted.  My initial gut-level reaction was to launch into a full-fledged pity party, complete with pouting and sulking.  WHY CAN’T I WIN THE LOTTERY???  SOMEONE has to win it, why is that someone ALWAYS someone else and never me???  (And no, it has nothing to do with the fact that I rarely buy tickets, because rarely is not never, it is just not often).  Recently I bought a lottery ticket and I was very disappointed that I did not win.  In fact, I may have even been a tad depressed that I did not win…..  I really, really, REALLY WANTED to win (note, a want is very different from a NEED).

14 Days ’til 40: Waiting Games

IMG_6826

The tree that is pictured above is the inspiring force behind my post today.  If you look carefully, you will see that the entire top half is about to fall off the tree (it was snapped in half by a snow storm almost one month ago).  This tree is very close to our school playground, which has forced us to close half the playground until we can get the tree cut down properly.  Apparently there is only one company in our area that cuts down trees and the company is not equipped to cope with all the trees that collapsed in our city during the last snow.  So, for now we wait.  We wait for the tree removal company or for mother nature to take her course.  Either way, the students are a little less entertained on the playground until we can declare the half near the dangling tree safe again.

69 Days ’til 40: Candle Photos

I LOVE candles, so in honor of it being Hanukkah (Happy Hanukkah to all of my readers out there who celebrate!) I thought I would post some recent photos of candles that I have taken.  I love the interplay between darkness and light.  It was fun working to capture all of the colors within the flame.  It was also more challenging than I thought it would be to get the wick in focus while the flame burned around it.

Vegetables are a must on a diet.  I suggest carrot cake, zucchini bread, and pumpkin pie.  ~Jim Davis

After all the trouble you go to, you get about as much actual “food” out of eating an artichoke as you would from licking 30 or 40 postage stamps.  ~Miss Piggy Read the rest of this entry »

78 Days ’til 40: Weather and Moods

DSC_0778

 

 

I took the above photo this evening.  It was WONDERFUL to peek out of the glass door of my balcony and see the POURING rain.  I LOVE the rain.  Yet, even though I love the rain, I sometimes I wonder if I have a bit of Seasonal Affective Disorder….  many people feel slightly depressed or “off” as the seasons change and there is less sun.

103 Days ’til 40: Roller Coaster Emotions Week

 

Have you ever had one of those weeks that felt nothing less than a roller coaster of emotions?  I am NOT referring to those weeks that are taken hostage by hormotional moments, I am talking about weeks when you are grounded, stable, feel great, and yet life seems to take you through ups and downs.
