Yes, I’m Still Alive! – Blue July Squares

Enjoyed the beautiful scenery after pulling over to the shoulder of the road. Texas has long stretches of land just like this. I enjoy driving on this road early mornings.
#Blue #JulySquares

Hope you are enjoying your Saturday morning! For those of you in the U.S., hope you enjoyed Independence Day! You ever had one of those days where you wake up, and all of the sudden you wondered where did the past two months have gone? I’m sorry I’ve been out without warning! Life just took me up in a whirlwind of events & activities:

  • Family reunion – Lots of fun times reconnecting with family and enjoying delicious food
  • Brother’s car accident – Thankfully, he’s fine though initially had neck strain
  • Purging my space of clutter – Primarily having a difficult time throwing away my lecture notes and things of sentimental value
  • Master’s program classes – Fun to imagine myself as a CIO making decisions

Engrossed in some books!

Last year I participated in an enjoyable photo challenge by Becky @ The Life of B where I took pictures of pink things. I would like to do it again. Here are the rules!

The theme for July is ‘blue‘, and as always it is totally up to you how you interpret the square theme but here are my suggestions for how we might stay connected on our square adventures this month.

  1. Your photographic square could be a ‘Bolt from the Blue’ – something unexpected or surprising
  2. Alternatively why not, like I have today, explore ‘Into the wide blue yonder‘ – sky, sea or maybe a location that is appealingly unknown and mysterious
  3. Or if you prefer keep it simple with ‘Blue‘ – whether that’s azure, cobalt, sapphire, cerulean, navy, ultramarine, indigo, or turquoise
  4. And if you’re feeling particularly adventurous try to combine two of these, or maybe even all three!

Whatever you decide to do, please remember there is a rule if you want to part of the Square Gang and be sure your squares make into the gallery.

Your main photograph must be square!

  1. It’s a good thing to sometimes pull away from it all and just be in your life moments. Drink them in with slow savoring sips. Be careful with Kondo though. I stumbled upon her on Netflix and suddenly discovered I’d burnt an entire day of my life and folded every article of clothing in the entire house into tiny little bundles! Lol

      Good advice Laura! Don’t want to take gigantic gulps too fast! 😉 Wow, Kondo sure impacted you that day! 🙂

      1. No kidding! Now I’m kinda roped into keeping that up but hey, it comes in handy once you discover your husband is a clothes hoarder! Seriously, who needs 76 pairs of socks!?!?!

          🙂 For the man who feels that his feet deserves many choices!

    Hi! Nice to see you again, I been on vacation so have been off the grid a little myself.
    So glad your brother is doing okay!
    Ahhh!! Reading books is a wonderful thing to be busy with and so easy to just lose yourself in a book! Especially love that one book that you are engrossed in. 🙂 Can’t wait to hear more of your thoughts about it! 🙂

      Glad you enjoyed your vacation Carolyn! But, yes, books whisk me away to another world and I enjoy learning from the experiences the author decides to share. 🙂
