Giving Thanks

So much to be thankful for.

This is the first Thanksgiving with my family in 17 years. It’s already so emotional.

We’ve had to rent a place since there will be a few more than usual.

Along with my family are my friends, both in the real world as well as my internet ones.

You.. I am very grateful for you…

I am truly blessed.

So much love and so many blessings to you.

Raq 😘

Sola, solita

No one else needed.

Solo bike ride on a beautiful day!

This here rebel Raq took off to check out the great outdoors..

Ok, so lately I have broken my wrist, fallen a couple times and let’s just say graceful hasn’t been in my vocabulary.

I was a little worried and excited about taking off on my own this morning. So I got all ready wrapped my wrist, sunglasses, keys and off I go! A few miles in I realized I forgot my helmet! Oh and ID? Nope nada. Had my phone, headphones and some coconut water. Oh well I figured if I fall it’s not usually my head that takes the hit. I know, the way my luck has been running it would be the first thing to hit the pavement… lol

Took it easy and just enjoyed myself.

Going to enjoy this trail all I can for now. There was quite a fire near here yesterday so there is still some smoke in the air as you can see in the pics.

This song came on and I could swear it was my trusty steed (bike) singing to me! 😉

So the rest of the day will be packing boxes and this song sola, solita in the head .. lol

Have an amazing day! Much love!

What’s your butterfly?

We all chase our butterflies, 🦋 be it love, money, freedom.

Different times of our lives leave us chasing different ones too.

Right now this butterfly 🦋 of freedom is work! However, I think one of my other butterflies might have actually let me go! Pinche butterfly. Lol!!

Glad there are so many other butterflies to draw in. Just have to get some flowers I suppose.

What’s your butterfly?

I was inspired to write this while working out and this song came on.

Always the music isn’t it?

I painted your room at midnight

So I’d know yesterday was over

I put all your books on the top shelf

Even the one with the four leaf clover

Man I’m getting older

I took all your pictures off the wall

And I wrapped them in a newspaper blanket

And I haven’t slept in what seems like a century

And now I can barely breathe

Just like the crow chasing the butterfly

Dandelions lost in the summer sky

Cause when you and I were gettin’ high as outer space

I never thought you would slip away

I guess I was just a little too late

I was just a little too late

I was just a little too, little too late
