365 Day Photography Challenge- Day 28

20120129-124903.jpg

Sorry for the delay of this post but not a lot happened yesterday. After my first day back at school on Friday I was exhausted. I slept in, watched some DVDs with my partner and went for a run to the shop to get groceries.

It wasn’t a bad day just a slow one. Today I have to return to the world of my family and house. I need to get some school work done as the kids come back tomorrow.

Hope you had a nice relaxing Saturday too.

I’ll post later with today’s picture.

365 Day Photography Challenge- Day 23- A Good Routine

Rambo and I have started to get into a good routine of running every day. It’s been two weeks now and we’ve done 13 runs. Our routine consists of me returning home from my partner’s house, having lunch, doing some school work, going for our run, doing more school work, cooking dinner, doing more school work (and watching the tennis) and then back to my partner’s house.

Routines help me to manage my anxiety so I have been feeling quite good lately. Knowing that I have to go back to school on Friday has really motivated me to get these units done so my start to the year is as stress free as possible and also it means I’ll have more time to continue my running. This was taken of Rambo while he was recovering this afternoon. Rambo did 5kms today, I did 6.5, I tried to get Rambo to go further but he pulled and pulled on the leash until I let him turn back and dropped him off. He’s getting there though, he use to get tired after 2kms. It’s good to know I’m helping him get back to his fit little self too.

How is your routine going?

365 Day Photography Challenge- Day 22- 5kms

Today was a good day. My longest workout yet. 5kms. It was a beautiful day to be doing it and even though it is warm, there is an amazing breeze which hit Rambo and I just as we were on the track home. Rambo is dying right now from exhaustion but I feel good and proud. I am very lucky to have the area I do right near my house to run and exercise.

You can sort of see a guy flying a kite in the distance. Just after I took this photo I ran into a grandmother and her granddaughter who was tiny! She came stumbling over to Rambo who obediently lay down for her to pat him. It was a nice run and Rambo will sleep well tonight.

Just taking a break from school work. Back to it!

365 Day Photography Challenge- Day 16- All Good

 

Today was a sad day. Jayson and I went to our friend Brianna’s grandfather’s funeral. Brianna is still in Europe and we thought it would be good to go, especially since she couldn’t be there, to pay our respects to her family. I’ve been friends with Brianna for 10 years and am close to her family, in particular her little sister, Jordanna. When my mum passed away in February last year, Brianna and her family were there for me. Her mum came to the funeral, as did Brianna of course, and told me that her home was always open for me. I felt it only right to return the respect and support I have felt from their family for the last year 10 years.

I knew Brianna’s grandfather Ron, only a little, from a few visits to the grandparents home. He was quiet, but fiercely funny and always seemed self assured. Her grandmother always made me feel at home and always wanted to feed me, like all good grandparents. It really was a beautiful service, I know people always say that, but it’s entirely true in today’s case.

I thought I’d share a photo of my healthy dinner to “lighten” the day for myself. Garlic and lemon barramundi and steamed veges. Not quite as good as the flathead I cooked last night but fair none the less. The healthy regime continues as I did 3.6 kms today, my longest yet!

Hope you enjoyed your day.

365 Day Photography Challenge- Day 13- My Favourite Time of Day

 

Today was a good day. I’ve been running every day lately and eating really well so I’ve been generally feeling much better. I decided to capture a moment when I felt at peace. The late afternoon/early evening is my favourite part of the day and today was no exception. This was taken from outside my house.

Tomorrow I’ll be catching up with some friends I met when I was in Europe this time last year. I’m looking forward to it. There’s a certain connection you can’t break when you’ve traveled Europe together in the blistering cold for 4 weeks.

Until then, enjoy my moment of peace.
