away for the weekend: random moments

random moments

A few random moments from my neck of the woods
- and these simple, everyday moments
are the moments I am most thankful for

When your cat doesn’t want to be in a selfie, but he needs to be squeezed anyway

When your daughter discovers that she isn’t the only one taking photos

When you wake up in a cold house with no power and discover 
the coffee brewed before losing the electricity

When you’re riding a slow chairlift alone and it feels like a good time for a goofy selfie

When you realize your loved ones have come back home.

I'm joining:
Michelle for Thankful Thursday &
 Tanya for Willy Nilly Friday Five

Thanks for dropping in!


  1. Love it! The coffee made me laugh - sometimes it's the little things that keep us going....

  2. Pretty moments at shoot! Cute gestures from your daughter

  3. Hello, great series. Your daughter is pretty. I love the dog. Enjoy your day and the weekend ahead!

  4. What cute photos! We both have so much to be thankful for this week! Hugs, Diane

  5. I love visiting your blog, Karen! You have such great sense of humour and I always leave smiling!

  6. ...perhaps I will never understand all this selfie stuff!

    1. Lol - well, nowadays it's just easier than handing a camera to someone else. I was really hoping to catch the mountains in the background - but without my glasses on, was only moderately successful. No matter, I'm glad to have a photo to remember a fun day.

  7. These are all great, but the coffee...what a lifesaver! lol Thanks for linking up today!

  8. Love that your coffee was brewed before the electric went out...

  9. Your daughter sure does look like you.

  10. Well captured lovely moments. The blue at the eyeglasses looks so great...
    I hope, the electricity is back again.
    Enjoy your weekend

  11. Coffee at the right time and a curly headed dog . . . seems like heaven to me.
    (Great Blog)

  12. These are great. I love the look on your daughter's face. The coffee perking was a neat "perk" after having the power go out, also I like your cup. - You seem to be having fun on that lift. - What a cute dog.
