An ode to my beautiful and unique Zinnias! It seems that each one is different in texture and design. A million thanks to my wonderful sister Bren for sharing these lovelies with me.
My daily photo commitment hasn’t been daily this summer. Most of these were taken today instead of the prompt day. But that’s ok. I’m documenting my love of my flowers. I’m making my project work for me. Even Katrina Kennedy, the founder of Capture Your 365 has struggled recently with inspiration.
I blame my 10-hour workdays and LIFE. Ray has been suffering with a rare side effect from taking a statin back in April. He only took the prescription for 4 days and has gone back to the his doctor several times to hear diagnoses of arthritis and then a degenerative disk. We went to an orthopedic last week who said his symptoms are not because of the disk but wouldn’t say what it is but she recommended physical therapy. He walked in for a physical in April with no problems and now has difficulty walking without pain. I’m hoping he is on the road to recovery now. I’m grateful for the internet giving me a lot of information. The doctors won’t admit that this is because of statins. But the physical therapist told Ray she had one other patient that had pain all over his body after taking a cholesterol drug…thankful that Ray only has had leg pain after hearing that.
We also took the plunge on purchasing a home! Finally got the words “YOU ARE APPROVED” yesterday. After living in an apartment for 3 years, we will be moving out in about a month. I’m beyond excited and I have more packing to do! We will finally have space for loved ones to visit us and for my long distance family to have a place to stay!
I know that creativity isn’t a constant but it is a gift to be treasured. I’m still giving this my all with the best of my ability. I may not have 365 photos at the end of the year but I will have more than I had last year.
Have a wonderful weekend!
