Weekly Photo Challenge – Glow

I love to take the full moon photos. The first two photos were taken this year, one on April 11, and the other on July 9, 2017.

Even more so, I love to take sunset photos. Hopefully, when the moment presents itself, I also have a camera at hand. The first sunset photo was taken in Huntington Beach, California right after we had a seafood dinner in a December evening, 2016. The last photo of the sunset was taken near my home in southern California in July 2017.

Thursday’s Special – Fall

Paula at Lost in Translation: The theme for this Thursday’s Special – Fall

Portland, Oregon is a place where I always want to come back during the fall season. The foileage around the fall season is magical and dramatic. The colors of the trees can change within days. It is a lovely sight to behold.

We went to St. John Cathedral Park last Sunday. The sky was high with trailing clouds. Many families took advantage of the warm weather, have kids running around the park in this leisure afternoon. One person was making huge bubbles to entertain the kids.

We made it to Sauvie Island and baby Autumn had the first pumpkin patch outing.

Tuesday Photo Challenge – Bird

My dear friends,

Just want to let you know that I dropped my laptop and messed up the wires, the screen is cracked, and the snaps are off. The pointer goes wild and is uncontrollable. Right now my laptop is flipped open, but I can’t close it without cracking it further. I’m in Portland, Oregon and will be going back to southern California on Saturday, October 21. I’ll wait to have it fixed or get a new laptop. I don’t know how to carry my laptop on the plane. If I’m lack of communication with you, please blame my computer!!!

I’m not able to search my archives for bird photos. It is with great effort that I use steady hands to find one seagulls photo from our trip to Key West. There are other bird photos, but won’t be able to post them.

If you had to move to a country besides the one you currently live in, where would you move and why?

If I had to move, I wouldn’t want to move to another country. I don’t want to start over to make friends and establish my community. After my retirement, I have established my exercise routine, learning environment, community group, medical need access, and shopping for a healthy diet. This is very important for me to maintain this environment. If I had to move out of California, the only place to would move to is Portland, Oregon, to be close to my daughter, son-in-law, and my new granddaughter.

What color would you like your bedroom to be?

We just had our bedroom painted to be beige. Our bedroom is facing south, not too much sunlight comes in. Beige makes the bedroom looks lighter.

What makes you Happy? Make a list of things in your life that bring you joy.

  1. To have faith in my belief. It is the source of my joy.

  2. To maintain a good relationship with my husband. A harmonious marriage is important to be joyful in life

  3. To be close to my daughter, my son-in-law, and my granddaughter. My daughter has been the joy in my life and the motivation for my living.

  4. To be close to my friends and community.

What inspired you or what did you appreciate this past week?  Feel free to use a quote, a photo, a story, or even a combination.

My granddaughter weighed 7 lbs 9 oz, 2 oz more than her birth weight last Wednesday at two weeks old. She weighed 7 lbs 14 oz las Saturday. She has a healthy growth. This is not something we would take it for granted. We are very thankful and happy.
