Day 44/365 Too cold to play

Hanging outside in the 37 degree weather, which is below zero for Texans! Snapped this of a play area. None of the kids wanted to go outside! It was just too cold!

Day 43/365 It's better than nothing!

Well today was extremely cold for my taste, so I did not get out and about to take a picture.

BUT, I did take photos inside of some of my soaps! I have some new ones coming out soon and they needed product photos. For those who like chocolate, you will enjoy these new soaps!

Enjoy my picture of the day!

Day 38/365 Holes

Did you ever wonder what your life would be like if you had gone down another path? I don't really think about that. I've always said that my choices in life have made me who I am. It's fun and exciting to go down paths you've never been. Sometimes the outcome may not be what you want, but you always learn something along the way. Each of our paths is like a hole in the fabric of life. Sometimes the lessons are hard, but who ever said life was easy?

Day 37/365 Self Portrait

I've never liked being in front of the camera. It is very rare that you will find me in any of the thousands of pictures that I have at home. So, I decided to do my own personal self portrait!

In years to come, my family can say, oh yeah, I remember her!

Day 34 - 36/365 Backtrack

Whew! It's hard keeping up with the blogposts when life gets in the way! I've been good at getting my photos of the day. The hard part is uploading them and getting them out there!!! Now, it's time for me to catch up with my posts!

I've had quite a bit of fun capturing these shots. I hope you enjoy them!

Day 31/365 Gracie

This is my beautiful 10 year old Great Dane. If you know about Great Danes, then you will know 10 years is a long time for these majestic dogs.
Unfortunately, I think her age is starting to catch up to her. She's not as spritely and as she once was and gets a little disoriented sometimes.

But those who have met her know she is one of the best dogs I have ever had and I hope she stays around for a few more years.

Day 30/365 Bottles

It's been raining the past few days and I haven't really gone anywhere. So, I decided to look around my house for something interesting to photograph.

Here it is:

Day 24/365

Just a walk around today found these beautiful berries!! I saw the ducks again today and their hole was much smaller, but I decided to post this photo instead for my 365.

Day 23/365 Frozen

Poor ducks! No, that's not water ripples behind them. It's a frozen pond and ice cubes floating around them! They didn't have much room to swim, but they were still enjoying the sunny, albeit cold, day!

Day 22/365 Is it Winter or Spring?

Well, it seems we are under a severe cold snap and it's just expected to get worse. But, it looks like the trees don't seem to care. Some of them anyway! Although this morning was extremely cold and the ice in our horse's water trough was frozen, the birds were singing merrily through the trees. In return, many of the trees were giving them green leaves to fly and play in as they whistled and scurried about.

Day 21/365 It's the Real Thing!

Well, it's just toooo cold to go outside and well, we drink a whole lotta these. My daughter calls them the healthy Cokes cause they're made with sugar and none of the other crud! At least they taste like they used to!

Playing around with Photoshop, but really didn't get what I wanted. I think my hands are too cold to do anything well right now!

Day 20/365 Fiber Optics

I've been staring at this fiber optic light for a really long time and decided to finally take some photos of it. I used my macro lens on my Tamron 75-300 and had a go. I put it under some lucite to see what would happen. I think I like the effects.

Day 19/365 Lessons Learned

Winter break is over and it's time to start classes again. Although my kiddo doesn't want to learn, it seems the Degu does! At least someone wants to be knowledgeable!

Day 18/365 One, Two, Three, Four

What started 28 years ago as a joke is now a part of my life. When the clock changed to 12:34, my very good friend turned to me and said, "Hey look! It's one, two, three, four! How cool is that. Now, every time we see that we'll think of this and think of each other!"

Since then, I always think of my friend when the clock turns to 12:34. I've continued those fond memories by passing this tradition on to my daughter and other friends. It's always fun to all of a sudden, look at the clock and say, "It's one, two, three, four" and giggle at our own private joke!

I now pass this tradition on to you!

Day 17/365 Just Lookin'

I couldn't post yesterday because our DSL kept going out. Day 18 will post later today. But, yesterday we were out shopping and came across these funky glasses! I didn't have my DSLR with me, but I did have my DROID! The pictures aren't super great quality, but they were such fun shots to take and couldn't pass up having a good time!

Here's looking at you!!

Combined Day 14 and Day 15/365

Well, yesterday was a big day! The end of the year and now we have the beginning of a new one. So my day 14 and day 15 photos were taken at the end of 2009 and the very beginning of 2010!

My Day 14 is just a self portrait. One of the few times that I will actually be in front of the camera. A good way to end the year. In front of a fire and in front of my camera.

Then to begin the year with a bang and sparks!! Day 15 is the beginning of the New Year and looking forward to what each day will bring as we start a new decade, a new journey, a new adventure.....a NEW YEAR!

Happy New Year!
