a NEW photo and Friday challenge accountability


Happy Friday!

The photo above is of Boston Common. It is the oldest public park in the country – dating back to 1634! It was fun to watch all the people take advantage of nature’s beauty!

It’s Friday, so I’ve gotta take note of how I’m doing on a couple of my challenges. So, I’m pluggin’ along on my 12 Classics challenge.  I’m working on #11 (the scary one)…the book is just so, so, SO long!

On my Photo Challenges, I’ve completed photograph a stranger and want to do the ‘frame worthy street photograph’ next.

I’ve just started training for a century bike ride, so that challenge is on track.  I plan to ride 3-4 times a week and increase the mileage by 5 miles each week. The ride date is the middle of August. I did this…oh, about a decade ago.  It takes time to train…a summer with relatively few travel plans or other distractions.  I think this summer will be good.

Lastly, after hearing of all the benefits of Apple Cider Vinegar, I think I want to challenge myself to start incorporating that into my day. I really don’t like the taste, so I’m sure there are tricks on Pinterest I’ll have to check out.

That’s it.  Let me know of any fun challenges I should be aware of! Have a great day.  Do something NEW!


NEW photos of random cuties



Happy Tuesday! I had to share these cute children with you today!

Don’t you love it when you can get pics of cute little random kidlets but don’t have to worry about posting them because they aren’t recognizable?  And you don’t have to worry about getting their parent’s permission to share their cuteness with others? I still remember the thrill of getting {this pic} of these sisters a few years ago.

This top pic is my favorite…randomly taken at the tulip festival in Ottawa, Canada.

These cute twins below are a bit more recognizable.  So, if any of you know them, I’ll take this one down if necessary. :o)


Have a great day!  Do something NEW!
