52 weeks.....week 2

Week 2 assignment......

        "your word"  what word will help you achieve your goals for 2013.

                                                     meet       CHILL

 

 
I am one
 that many times
 just
needs
to
Chill
 
 
 
 
 
As my Dr. put it
slow down
 take a deep breath
listen to your body....

 

 

 
so tonight
when I am frustrated
 with myself
for once again
 putting something away
 so good
I can't find it
 
 
I  sat down
on this WARM
 January evening
in IOWA
on my new porch
barefooted and coat less
in JANUARY
I listened to the geese cackle
laughed at the kitten inspecting the "white stuff"
chatted with Foo girl
watched the sun set glow off the ice crystals
 
I chilled
 
 

 
go visit all the rest of the wonderful words

  2. I wish I had your photography skills - love these pictures! Glad you are chilling - I will keep reminding you to do that! Slow down and watch the kitties! It sounds like our warm Iowa weather will be changing to something a little more seasonable today!

  3. Hi Kim,
    Your word and mine go well together. This is some crazy weather we have been having, so enjoy yours while you can.

  4. I adore all of your photos. It is always a nice thought to "not sweat the little things." It seems it is the little things that take most of our energy, many times for no good reason. Chill is such a great word.

    It has been warm in Kansas as well. Yesterday was a 60 degree day. Today, though, we have snow in the forcast. It is a bit crazy. :)

  10. Girl, sitting barefoot and coatless outside in Iowa is definitely going to chill you, now get inside and get thawed!

    Jokes apart, the photos are stunning, and yes, listen to your doctor and take it easy, take a chill pill :)

  18. These photos are fantastic! I could get lost in them! I like that you are allowing yourself room to breathe, letting the stillness and quiet guide you. And enjoying the view! I wish you joy in the journey in 2013. Enjoy the day. Erin

  19. Oh, what a word. It's the exact opposite of mine isn't it? HA! I think I've already done too much chilling myself, but if it's doctor ordered then you should totally strive for it! Enjoy :)
