Well....this is my first full week of taking a pic everyday, for Project 365 and I'm afraid I wasn't very creative! Lol It proved to be a little harder than I thought, but I can see that this project will inspire me to keep my camera or my iphone handy at all times. I intend to make a book out of all 365 days of pics, at the end of this year, through Blurb. I can't wait to sit down with a cup of tea and look through it! Here's a little peek at a few of my blog friend Sara's, blurb books.
Today, was a very long day, but it was wonderful! We had a great church service followed by a baptism in the river.....in January! Brrr, it was so cold! After the baptism we went shopping at Costco and Fred Meyer, then at home I prepared the food for our home group that we hosted and at 7:30 I fell into bed. I turned on the tv and started watching Worst Cooks in America and it was then, that I remembered that I needed a picture for the day. Ugh! I seriously couldn't get myself up, so I took a shot of the tv with my iphone....real creative huh? I got up at 9:00 to get something to drink and I could barely walk, so I went right back to bed and stayed there til morning. I'm still recovering from my back surgery, so I guess I over did it just a little. Lol
Today I didn't feel up to going swimming, but it was such a nice day, so Andy and I decided to go for a short walk on the river walk. It was lovely and the air was crisp and cold and so refreshing! This is a shot I took from the trolley tracks. This is a perfect spot for portrait pics....the leading lines are fantastic!
Today was another long day! We drove out of town to see our dear friend, who is drawing very near to the end of his journey on this earth, and it proved to be a very emotional day. I thoroughly enjoyed seeing him and talking to him and just holding his hand! We will miss him terribly, but we're so thankful that he will be waiting for us, up in heaven! Before heading home, Andy and I enjoyed soup and salad at Olive Garden and we were really bad and split a piece of rasberry cheesecake....shhh, I won't tell if you won't tell! Lol After we got home, I was just dragging, so I decided I needed a protein shake.
I just had to post this pic of Sophie because her little paws are so cute!
Ok, so I guess this is what you do, when you realize that you haven't taken a picture for the day.....you look for something in your house! Hence, why I took a pic of the candles on my kitchen table. Lol These really are beautiful at night when the lights are turned off....they actually flicker! They are battery operated candles that have been dipped in real wax, cool huh? I got them from my sister-in-law's shop and I love them!
Andy and I decided to take a drive on the beach today and there happened to be part of a whale carcus, that had washed up. The seagulls were feasting off of it and I actually captured a gross pic of one of them pulling the flesh off. Ew...I won't be posting that one! It kept raining off and on, so I just rolled down my window and took some shots from the truck. We had a wonderful drive....I just love the beach!
It actually stopped raining for a little while, so I ventured outside in my backyard, scouting for something to take a picture of. I actually did find a few things to take pics of, but in the end I just had to post this one, of Sunny and Sophie playing with the stick. Sophie does manage to steal it once in awhile, but most of the time she's just happy to latch onto it, along side Sunny and run around the yard with it. Of course, when she does steal it....the chase it on!
