One Day One World Project: 6 am to 7 am

Last week I failed to deliver on the 5 am to 6 am timeframe.  It wasn’t from lack of trying. My plan had been to post the race start at the Haliburton Forest Ultra last Saturday. Numerous pictures were taken but not one was even remotely close to usable. Opportunity lost.

My plan this week for the 6 am to 7 am time slot was going to be Sunday morning after spending the night manning Aid Station #5.  Our camp fire was still burning gloriously and watching the sun rise and the shadows begin to disappear was really quite beautiful.

… but then we got caught up in the process of cleaning up our camp area and preparing to break down the aid station.  All thoughts of taking photos evaporated.  Opportunity lost.

All week I’ve lacked the energy or enthusiasm to do much of anything, so here I am on the last day of the 6 am to 7 am time slot.  My only inspiration came this morning as I poked my head outside to pick up the paper on the doorstep … my front yard in the rain.

This was my world this morning between 6 am and 7 am.  Visit Northwest Frame of Mind for more on One Day One World.

  1. Funny how sometimes actually living life interferes with our photo-taking. I’ve had that feeling of “opportunity lost” many times. Love your grasses, Joanne, one of my favorite plants in the fall garden.

    You had a gruelling weekend; it’s not surprising it would take several days to get caught back up in sleep, etc. hope you’re back to 100%.

    At least you made it (and a lovely photo too)! I have failed badly these last few hours. I’m not very good at early morning. Oh, well, hopefully I’ll be able to join in again shortly 🙂

    Your yard is pretty – so beautiful and green! (Well, I have some green in my yard, but it is Arizona, so it’s not nearly as vibrant 🙂 )

  6. Your neighbourhood and garden look beautiful! I wish it looked even half of that round my way but sadly it is a real disappointment. It’s okay to have an uneventful week every so often-it makes you appreciate life that little bit more when it does speed up 🙂 xx

      Thanks Sam. I try to show the nice parts where I seem to be ‘winning’. There are other parts where the weeds have taken control that scare me 😉

      I love your new picture, pretty lady!!

      • Haha you and me both! I leave my front garden alone and just pay a guy to strim it once a month so it doesn’t look ‘impressive’ (my area is extremely *ahem* unsavoury and I don’t want to appear like I have anything worth stealing!) but my back garden or the ‘field’ as I call it, is slowly turning into my oasis 🙂

        And thank you, I’m really happy with the ‘change’ 😉 xx

  7. Congratulations on succeeding with the time slot. I have massive amounts of admiration for you and this challenge, and I love the adventure it’s brought you (and entertainment it’s brought me!)
    And I do believe you got that master gardener touch by the looks of your mums and grasses. They’re gorgeous, Joanne!

    Yesterday was a good day to grab the paper, cozy up with a cup of something warm & forget about commitments! Looks like today is more promising. Although it is very fresh this morning, the sun is shining. We are of to volunteer for the Terry Fox run…have a wonderful day Joanne:)
