I made a vow to myself not to touch my blog today. I promised myself I would not look at Facebook or Twitter or the Internet at least until next week. Broke that already, didn’t I?
I’m jumping in on yet another link-up. This time it’s for Clan Donaldson, and the theme is “Bright.” I ran across Cam’s post for today, and remembered a photo I snapped last night with my phone and posted to Facebook:
It was about 6 pm, and there was a swim meet. It was sweltering out (and still is today. That could be the reason I haven’t felt the motivation to accomplish much.), and of course we didn’t arrive at the pool in time to nab one of the umbrellas, so we had no shade. I was sweating so much my clothing was soaked. As I sat in hot misery, waiting for our boys’ turn to swim in their events–and wishing I could jump in the water, just for a minute–Moe said, “LOOK!” I looked up from the book I was reading to see what he was pointing at. Just then it suddenly felt just a little bit cooler, and I was able to appreciate the beauty of this small gift, and the brief and slight reprise from the oppressive heat.
Clan Donaldson has a beautiful photo for today’s theme, check it out here; and while you’re at it see what other bloggers are posting, too!
(On their Facebook page, Clan Donaldson’s profile claims, “Blogging to avoid housework since 2008.” Yeah, I think that pretty much sums up what’s going on with me. Tomorrow I will stay away from the Internet…maybe.)
