Project 366: Day 166


Tuesday night, Charlie spent the night at a friend’s house, while Joe and I went out for pizza and a movie.

Joe did not get to bed Tuesday night until after 9pm, which is later than his usual 7:30 bedtime. And Charlie? Well, when I went to his friend’s house to get him the Mom informed me that the boys were up well past 11:00, which is much later than his usual 7:30 bedtime.

So, I was not surprised when I looked in my rear-view mirror on the way home from camp to find two boys zonked out. I snapped these shots while stopped at a red light. Guess what?! I used my cell phone! Continue reading

You Tell Me :: A Caption Contest


This is not an original idea. I’ve never been a leader, and I see no reason to start now. So, following in the footsteps of The Byronic Man and The Good Greatsby, I am copying flattering them with my own caption contest.

This picture is not some random shot I found online. I snapped this shot myself (talented, eh?), and it screams for a caption. Please help me marry this photo with the best caption. Just leave your caption idea in the comments section. I’ll select my top 5 favorites and open it up for voting on Sunday June 17th. What’s the prize? Details, details. Just give a shot, OK?

Project 366: Day 164


A week ago today was the Venus Transit. What was the Venus Transit? It was when the planet Venus passed between the Sun and the Earth. The next Venus Transit will not take place until 2117. 

Rob and I are astrology astronomy geeks. Though he was out of town, the kids and I used Rob’s welding lenses to witness the celestial event. Just like I’ve used sunglasses to act as a filter for my camera, I thought I’d try using Rob’s welding lenses as a filter. My hope was to capture the event on film. To say I am thrilled with the results is an understatement. This picture is going down as one of my all time favorite shots.

Honestly, I can’t believe I took it. I look at the picture and think it is a professional shot. I’m good. Continue reading

10 Reasons Why I Do Not Have Friends


During two separate conversations with two separate friends, the three of us mentioned the fact that we do not have friends. I mean, we are friends to a certain extent; one of the gals is one of my best friends, and the other gal is a coworker. While I get together with the one gal, the other gal and I don’t mingle outside of work. (Though, I did go with her and her daughter to see the midnight release of the movie Eclipse.)

For several days I pondered about why I do not have friends, and I came up with 10 reasons. Continue reading
