Below is a series of captures of cars (including buses and other kinds) from across my travels, enjoy! Continue reading

This was a good week. In spite of hearing about my mom having to go to the hospital for several days and not being able to be with her, there were several moments to be happy about, including her recovery and being able to go back home yesterday.

I did great progress at my workout classes and indulged quite bit in the weekend. There were also home improvements. Read more about my week’s small pleasures: Continue reading

Hats Around The World
