I had a pretty full day and not much time for fun with the camera. I listed a LOT of stuff on eBay- something that isn't difficult but is time consuming and tedious. Therefore you get a shot of one of my items up for sale. I chose the old lens and its accessories because it seemed the most appropriate for the blog. ;-)
I'm baaaack. Back is still out, but I got a few shots this morning when I had to get out to petsit.

I missed yesterday and probably today, I've pulled my back and out it hurts just to sit at the computer and type this. I guess I could take shots of the couch/tv, but I really don't even have the energy for that. I'll be back tomorrow hopefully.

I'm seriously running out of things to take pictures of when we don't go anywhere. We were home all day so while Kya was playing with her Barbie convertible I just imagined a road trip. ;-)

I wear my sunglasses ALL the time, from dawn to dusk, winter to fall. When I'm inside or in the shade I push them up but rarely take them off. Sometimes I'll be home for hours and realize I still have them on top of my head. Which is why it was so funny today when C, the beautiful boy who is a frequent subject on this blog for both Karen and myself, didn't recognize me until I pushed them up. He was in the car and I was running inside and I stopped to say hi- he was looking at me with a very serious expression and I could tell he had no idea who I was. I pushed up my sunglasses and he smiled and said, "Hi Hope!" Good to know he won't be talking to any 'shady' characters. B-)


Well, I forgot all about the project yesterday. I was in bed and almost asleep at about 1 AM when I remembered that I hadn't posted a picture and decided to just finish falling asleep. I did pick up my camera yesterday and take four pictures of the hall where our friends are having their wedding reception next month but I wasn't really taking a picture as much as testing how my lens would do in the dark room. But in the spirit of the challenge I'll post one of them anyway, even if I am posting it a day late.

Got Hope?

If ya do, could you send it my way?

The things I've been going through are changing me and I'm struggling to see the beauty in things I normally do. Beautiful sunrise this morning, but I didn't feel like I could enjoy it or see it for what it really is b/c my mind is all muddled up with worry and stress. This is more what it looked like to me...ironically, I find this beautiful as well.

Back to the books

We started back up school work today. (we homeschool) The boys love to do it on the couch all sprawled out(they wouldn't let me photograph THAT), there's just something about books and papers strewn all over the table that I enjoy.
