Pics, Be’s, and a Word of the Day

This is my 791st blog post. I am amazed that I have continued to write posts and have various categories. I know that I am still writing posts after eight years for one reason and it’s not because I am an inspired writer; the reason I am still writing is because of the kind encouragement from readers.

I sincerely appreciate your comments and that you take the time to visit and share your feedback on my posts. ♥ David


Let’s start today with some photos I have taken recently in and around Penticton.


One of the reason sunflowers are appreciated is that they are such a bee-friendly plant and when the seeds arrive they also make birds quite pleased. ♥

We can always use more Be’s such as:

  • Be Understanding
  • Be Patient
  • Be Better
  • Be Careful
  • Be Slow to Anger
  • Be Positive
  • Be Quick to Praise


Today in reading I came across this word “garrulous” which means : excessively talkative especially on trivial matters.

If you want a Word of the Day challenge – try using this word today ♥


Enjoy your day, and thanks for meeting me here today. – David.

      I think blogging, learning a language, walking ten kilometres, solving a puzzle are all similar perhaps like all things. One small step at a time, and small steps add up while big steps are impossible. – David
