Photo Blogging Challenge ( #Photoblogchal ) for October: Water

It's been awhile, but I wanted to join in again this month with A 'lil Hoohaa's photo blogging challenge.  It was the theme that captured my attention:  water.  Oh, how I miss water!  Living in the desert, this challenge was really a challenge.  Where could I find water? Water is almost imaginary here, so I headed toward the lands of imagination:  theme parks!

Even though I traveled a bit to find water, I should have been patient.  On Friday the 28th, we had rain!  (Hey, PJ--can you please choose "Snow" in December?  I'd like to place an order for a white Christmas!)

  4. Nice photos! I too visited a theme park close to me, not as special as Disneyland though. They all came out pretty cool too! I like the spiderweb picture, it came out very cool.

  5. Ha, yeah, I heard you guys got some rain in California! Very clever to ask for a snow theme - let's see what happens :-)
    Too bad you had through all the trouble of visiting Disneyland to take those cool shots!

  8. Kristi your photos are wonderful! Sure do wish we could get some much needed rain here.I think you got rain when we didn't the last time. We were supposed to but it just didn't get this far south. thanks for sharing your pictures! They inspire me.

  9. Haven't visited a Disney theme park in years and your peeks at some easy-to-overlook details have me thinking about a return visit now that I'm into photography. I especially like the reflection of the castle and the water drops on the spider's web - that one's a tough shot to get properly in focus (yes, the voice of unsuccessful experience :-) ). Hope your December wish comes true.

Ten Things of Thankful: Even in Times of Uncertainty

  A railroad switch point on the tracks at the Golden Spike National Historic Park There is a lot I don't know. I don't know who will lead the United States for the next four years (at the time I'm composing this post, that hasn't been determined yet.) I don't know when covid cases will stop rising in my state and start decreasing. I don't know how challenging situations will turn out. There is much uncertainty in life. Living in limbo-land is hard. It's emotionally exhausting. It can be immobilizing. My body seems to think chocolate is the answer, but I know that isn't a long-term solution. What do I need in times like these? I need to REMEMBER . 1. R esilience. People are resilient. I am resilient. I'm thankful for resilience. 2. " E ach Life That Touches Ours for Good." So many people, both those I know in "real life," and those I have only met virtually, have taught me, encouraged me, and been examples to me. I'm thankful

Ten Things of Thankful: Another Trip Around the Sun

  A mixed bouquet of pink and purple flowers sits on a round table Last weekend, I celebrated another birthday. I think the earth moves around the sun faster and faster each year, but I can't prove it. Before another minute goes by, let me share my Ten Things of Thankful list for this week. I'm thankful for family: A birthday dinner with my daughter Birthday calls/texts from family members Beautiful flowers from my children A Facetime call with grandchildren. (My grandson repeated three words the entire time: "I am three!" At one point, I told him I would call him Groot.😉)  Drexel and his laid-back nature (The following video shows Drexel on the floor, while the robotic vacuum repeatedly runs into him and starts up his hind leg and tail. Drexel never gets up.) John and his engineering skills. Yesterday, the bishopric of our ward (church congregation) drove around the neighborhood and (taking care to observe covid recommendations) passed out doughnuts to everyone. Eac
