Project 366: Week 40

I’ve been very busy lately with home projects, mostly painting, so week 40 has been put together from bits and pieces. No big deal. At least this project is still moving forward. Only 12 more weeks to go!

This week's photo theme: Bit and Pieces

What I've learned this week:
Spending time with loved ones is the best feeling in the world.
For quality results, take your time when doing a job.
Some things are in our control, some things are not.
Don’t let someone’s bad attitude ruin your day. It’s their problem, not yours.

Have a good one, everyone!

  1. So true about someone's bad attitude being their problem and it shouldn't ruin our days. Always saddens me to see an abandoned building. You wonder what its original intent was, why it failed, etc. I love the picture with the flowers! Can't believe the project is winding down!

    1. I get the same feeling with abandoned buildings. And I wonder about their history, their downfall, their stories. I find it all quite fascinating.

  2. No 1) for me is Autumn flowers ... simply gorgeous ... what amazing colour.
    No 2) is the tree on fire ... nature at it's best
    No 3) is red and green ... these colours do go well together don't they.

    It's not to say I didn't like your other photo's ... I do.

    All the best Jan

  7. Love your bits and pieces. You are probably too young to remember The Dave Clark Five song "Bits and Pieces"! Man, I am old. :-)

  9. Your pictures are always so interesting. The textures and contrasts just beg to be touched.

    Your comment about bad attitudes being the other person's problem. Totally agree with that. That is a wonderful quote.

    1. I remind myself of that all the time. Not to take someone else's bad attitude personally!

  10. What can I say? Wow, Wow, and wow on each one. These are fantastic. I see you have Golden Rod but don't know the purple plant.

    Border Collies can out smart me. Sadly, Lil is kinda like I am...she still has the know how but is losing her can do.

    1. I once contemplated getting a border collie because I love how intelligent they are. But when I realized that I'd be the only one doing all the care 24/7, I changed my mind. Maybe some day? Who knows...

  11. I really like the tree on fire. You caught the light at the very best time. I like the fourth thing you learned . We waste a lot of time with bad attitudes.

    1. We do waste a lot of times. It's hard to be at the receiving end of a bad attitude but we should try not to take it personally.

  12. Your words of wisdom at the end of the post are so true. Neat to see the abandoned building. Abandoned houses and buildings fascinate me in a way. And I love the autumn flowers. I have some similar to the blue ones, and my mom has a lot of marigolds!

  14. Thanks for the basic truth that someone's bad attitude is their problem. How often we/I forget this.

    1. So true, Jan. And each photo is a frozen moment in time. I walked there. Stood there. Looked there. And probably thought about many things while I was there!
