After a beautifully anxious night, we decided to stop for breakfast and my husband pulled this little guy from his pocket. I almost wanted to give the project up for today and rest but he pushed me in the right direction. The lost kitty looks like he’s contemplating a great deal sitting on toast with grape jelly below.
I’m posting this from our Ostara celebration and I’ll fill in the information tomorrow. I’m glad to post my photo.
Last night was so much fun. I really wanted to try and take a decent picture of the fire spinning. I think I should have adjusted my ISO and maybe held the phone more still. I really need to get a tripod or Gorillapod for the phone. It was awesome last night but that’s for a different post. I tried to frame the image following the rule of thirds.
I don’t know what’s going on with WordPress. First my comments then I’m not able to view certain blogs in my reader section for a few days then they appear. It’s so frustrating. Tonight’s photo is brought to you by the toys at the self-checkout and my son choosing one. I think this is supposed to be one of the evil Siamese cats from Disney’s Lady and the Tramp. Now that the errands are finished and he’s tucked away eating ice cream I can get this posted and try to figure out what to dish to make to pass. Happy Friday Y’all!
I went outside! Then the wind was all, ‘Nah girl. I’m fixin’ to make it unbearably cool and knock over your toy.’ I found the perfect location. A drain with water running in it had the light on it and it looked great. That wind made it chilly and it was powerful enough to keep knocking over the figure. I didn’t want to chance losing it down the drain. I made a promise to my son that he can have ALL the toys and legos after the project was over. Secretly, I’ve been giving some to him so my husband doesn’t notice a slew of toys.
Tonight’s post is a bit late. I took my husband to the library to get his card. There I learned that they put puzzles together in their free time. I had a wonderful idea that would help me cope with my past but that will be for another post. Tonight’s photo is of a character figure that my son threw in my purse and I discovered it. Sitting there…begging for a photo-op.
Well…I’m hosting a ‘boys’ night. My son has a friend over, do boy things, and eat pizza. I’ll leave out the burping contest winning results (you’ll thank me). I thought it would be a great time to pull out a ninja turtle. I can do better but I thought this was cute.
I’m getting a little frustrated with WordPress and the comment section. My comments are not showing that I have them but my email is. WP is aware but not going to hold my breath on the issue being completely fixed anytime soon. Today’s photo was actually taken yesterday. I just wanted to post the kitty with the books. There was no flash used but the light from the morning sun coming in made it seem like there was. I think I was able to capture an ‘Ireland-esque’ feel for the color palette. I was really trying to capture perspective but also an image with a focal point that draws the eye. I like it but think I can do better.
Last night my husband and I were invited out to drink at several St. Paddy’s night events. As usual, we opted out because we are getting old and drinking all night isn’t as appealing as when we were young. This morning however I had made plans to have a traditional Irish breakfast with another couple that would include the ‘Dublin Bloody Mary.’ We showed up, got a message that they weren’t going to make it. I’m just going to leave out the weak explanation. My husband and I enjoyed a great breakfast but the cancel (4th time in a row) put me in a bummer mood.
For today’s photo, I decided on happy upbeat colors and decided books for the happy reading lost kitty would be great. And since I had such a heavy breakfast I’m off to make a salad. Happy Sunday Y’all!
This morning was mine and my son’s ‘coffee date’. This is where he gets hot chocolate and I get coffee. He was a little disappointed that I told him, ‘no toys’ as I wanted to try my hand at a ‘moody’ coffee photo or as I just learned, ‘lifestyle’ photography. I need more practice. But the barista did awesome making this look yummy.
