As I pondered my subject of my post today, I couldn’t help but realize that my head was spinning with all the things that I wanted to accomplish today.
- –Write my blog
- –Start my next book review
- –Continue hand-quilting my daughter’s quilt
- –Update the photos of a quilt I have on Etsy
My coach suggested taking pictures of wrought iron fences and to write about all of the really cool different designs. As we both chuckled about doing that, she said, “Oh I can tell already that you think that’s a silly idea, never mind…it must be just me that thinks that’s a cool idea!”
But what she didn’t know was that I was thinking, no that’s not a silly idea, and that I was really thinking that I had been wanting to take some photos of a quilt on a really cool wrought iron fence that I saw a few months ago downtown.
The good thing is that I live downtown. So, I started on my 10 minute trek, anxious to check out my photo op.
Wow, well my 10 minute trek turned into something I wasn’t expecting. I thought I was just going to go straight to the photo op place, take some photos, and head straight back home.
But, as I started walking I started to notice that there was inspiration all around me. I know in California we don’t have the 200 year old buildings like the east coast does, but we still have some awesome buildings that have been around awhile.
Those are the buildings that you just have to wonder about all of the footsteps that have gone down those halls.
So, guess what? I started taking photos of windows and buildings, and of course wrought iron fences. I thought about all of the memories that had to have been made in all of these places.
So, basically, my very thoughtful trek downtown was quite different this morning. Normally, if I walk downtown it’s just to run an errand because it’s easier than starting up my car. But, not today. Today was different.
Oh, and my photo op?
Yes, I did go back, and I think I got some really cool photos for my Etsy shop! I definitely added steps to my Fitbit today and I somehow managed to ignore the city workers that were a little curious to see what I was doing!
And, my birds were happy to see me back.
Enjoy your day…ttyl!
