I think I am starting to get in a groove with this taking a picture daily. Yay!
Day 15/365. We received more snow on Monday. Thankfully it was a holiday for me, I didn’t have to get out and drive the morning commute in it. I love how the snow looks in the curled branches of this tree. It’s actually a pretty cool looking tree anytime of year.
Day 16/365. Someone was a sleepy girl, she was already curled up in bed as I sat with my laptop working on my post for this past Wednesday. I guess she gave up on trying to hint to me that it was bedtime!
Day 17/365. I noticed the other day that my favorite local brewery, Sun King, had a new coffee porter out. Or at least new to me. So of course I had to try it. Quite tasty, but not quite as good as my WeeMac.
Day 18/365. Someone get so jealous when she doesn’t have my full attention. Just prior to this picture I had been sitting on the floor, giving Crazy Izzy (my feline fuzzball) some love. This one decided it was her turn and ran Izzy off. This is the look that I get when she wants the lovins. I just love that little face!
Day 19/365. I worked both jobs this day and got home quite late. In fact I was getting ready for bed when I remembered that I hadn’t taken my daily picture. I didn’t want to take yet another fur ball picture (I don’t want to over run my feed, or here for that matter, with pictures of the cat & dog). When I remembered the wonky tree out front in the porch light. The tree is called a Harry Lauder Walking Stick, if you’re curious. The camera doesn’t quite capture the nuances of how the light falls on it quite like the eyes do. Such a shame.
Day 20/365. The sunrise was absolutely beautiful this day. I happened to notice the pink and purple hues through the cracked drapes in the living room. It was still early so I had not opened them quite yet, so I grabbed my phone and headed outside. The colors were stunning! I know the backyard setting is not ideal, but the backyard is what it is. I knew if I hopped in the car to head out and find a better view that the colors would have been lost by the time I got there. Regardless, this is one of my favorite pictures so far for this challenge.
As I sit here this Sunday morning, updating this post, it’s quite foggy and dreary looking. We have warmed up quite a bit, the snow is melting and the backyard is a mess. No where as pretty as yesterday. And somehow yesterday I scratched my EYEBALL. Literally! I spent most of the morning waiting to be seen by the doctor and having to drive to a couple different pharmacies to find who had the salve that I had been prescribed. Today my eye is still swollen and irritated, I’m not quite sure how I will do the Sunday self portrait. We shall see.
Day 21/365. I decided to skip the self portrait for today. I didn’t want to scare anyone with my icky eye, although I think the swelling in the eyelid is going down. It doesn’t completely look like I’ve been balling my eye out. Lol. Instead I ventured out to one of the walking paths in town, one that I knew had a bridge over the creek in hopes that the fog over the water would make a nice picture. I wish I had gone out earlier in the day, I would have had more daylight to go further down the path.
Hopefully next week I will be back on my game a bit more. I had planned on taking pictures this weekend for a blog post featuring my winter work wear for Wednesday. Again with the eye, I think that blog post will wait a week since I head back to work tomorrow.
I hope you’ve enjoyed this weeks pictures and stop back by again. Have a great week!
