It's Sunday morning and almost typical, at least it would be if we didn't have puppies afraid of loud noises. The combination of July 4th fireworks in the neighborhood, combined with rolling thunder, created a unique evening resulting in minimal sleep. But I'm not complaining really...nothing beats puppy bonding. I'm tired and way off the topic of photography as usual, but I'm fighting to keep it light.
I've noticed my list of things that make me happy has changed because of the pandemic. Hunkering down for four months has clearly changed my values, but as you look at my list, what's on yours?
We're all dealing with a new normal, and while it's incredible how much I miss getting out to dinner with friends and having friends over, we've learned to make the best of it. But there's no question my standards are different. By definition, I guess we've become physical recluses. Until Florida's numbers slow down, we're staying home...but thank God for the Internet and our phones!
Wishing everybody a Sunday filled with moments that make you smile. If you're like us, you've already realized how little it takes to put a smile on your face, but sometimes you have to work to let the smile come to the surface. Remember, it really does take less muscle work to smile than it does to frown.
Happy July 5th, everybody!
