Cindy - Florida 10:10--11:00 AM

We have reached our 100th post on Creatively Fit! Yay!

This was a special walk, for me, today because my mom decided to join me:). We bent the rules a little. Mom rode her bike and clicked. Bike riding is easier on her knees. She will be posting later today, I hope. This first collage includes two pictures of my mom biking ahead of me. We went around her neighborhood today. It was nice and shady there. I included the picture with the word "GOD" etched into the concrete because I thank God for having this time with my Mom.
In the next collage I grouped together all of my photos of footprints.
In this next group I was in search of something other than green!
Here are some random photos of things that caught my eye.

This Birds of Paradise was my favorite picture of the day!

Here are all 79 pictures from today's walk...

I hope you were able to get Creatively Fit today!

Comments are always welcome. They help to keep me motivated!:)

Have a wonderful day!

Hey Cindy,

I love the pictures and that you are spending quality time with your mom. Sometimes we don't realize how special they are until .... well you know. No Sadness...just enjoy. The pictures are wonderful, it must have been great walking in the shade. Today I didn't get to walk...Douglas had PT early and then I had to cook a mountain of Chicken and pasta for the Football pre game meal tomorrow. Glad I volunteered only once for that. And it looks as if this week may be a wash for us getting together to walk. Hopefully next week will be good. Check out my facebook, I posted the pictures of the chicken and pasta.

Lovely photos as always! The birds of paradise are so bright and beautiful! I'm amused by all the footprints... like the whole neighborhood was just waiting for the cement layers to turn their backs so they could sneak in and leave their marks! :) Glad you enjoyed the time with your mom and got her to join the team!

Cindy thank you for sharing your pictures, they are exceptional as usual and reveals your creative instincts. I have learned a lot from you and appreciate the time we had together yesterday. Hope you are proud of your Mother and the pictures I posted.
Love you

:) Okay...I got your "subtle" hint about not commenting on this post yesterday, but I DID comment on it!! I don't know what happened...

I talked about your footprint collage and how I had never ever placed my foot in wet cement...wish I had.

I talked about how lucky you were to have the opportunity to walk with your Mom, and how wonderful I think it is that she takes pride in your talents.

I talked about the last collage and how the bottom left photo reminds me of the one that I took with a white fence and sky. We need to put them side-by-side.

And, I talked about how much I love the framed photo, wondering how you did the frame.

The only reason I can think of that my comment did not post is because I mistyped the "super secret and strange" password that Google sometimes requires me to put in. Then, I must have thought it posted instead of saying it didn't.

You will even notice that I commented on your Mom's around the same time (which I didn't see when I posted mine, and didn't know about until I saw YOUR comment to her). It's weird how it does that sometimes.

So, now that my comment has turned into a short essay, I think I will finish. Again, great pictures!!

Hugs, Hayley

But wait! There's more! I also talked about the fact that I was delighted that we've reached 100! Who would have thought it would happen so quickly? I can still remember that first conversation...It feels like it was only a month ago. Oh wait! It was only a month ago. ;)

Cindy @ Chalk it Up! said...

Relax Hayley, It's ok:) haha

I was just making an observation. Sheesh!

Your computer must be discriminating against your comments to me, as I recall a few other post when you commented and it never appeared. If it happens again don't worry about reposting the whole comment(I see what a pain that can be). This is all meant to be fun! If it's frustrating you it's not worth it.
Have a happy day!:)

Love ya,

Keep up the good work on the photos and on walking! I need the motivation too. I'm going to try to get out tonight and have some fun with my walk. Your photos are awesome, by the way.
