Seems like eons ago that I posted anything. I’m not sure why but I just haven’t been very motivated lately, about anything. Whether it’s photography or blogging or cleaning my house, I just can’t seem to get it together. I think it has to do with the heat and humidity around here. It really zaps my energy. So, I’ve been doing what absolutely had to be done (semi-cleaning the house, working, etc.) and not much of anything else. I’ve been thinking about picking back up on my blog for a while now so hopefully you will start seeing more of what’s happening in my little part of the world.
A little update on the photo challenge I did last year, Shutterboo decided not to host a photo challenge this year. 😦 I’m disappointed because it really did challenge me subject-wise and time-wise. I haven’t been able to find another photo challenge that appeals to me for this year so that’s that I guess. Anyway, I guess you will get to see some pictures from my everyday life. Hopefully they won’t be too boring. And in the meantime I will be stalking flickr to see if I can find something interesting to copy.
Just to get things rolling here are a few of my favorite pictures from over the last few months. Enjoy! (In no particular order)
Our renovated deck – now that could have been a blog all by itself but I won’t worry you with the details. I’m just enjoying the end result.
My nephew graduated! We are all so proud of him!
Purple flower with water droplets.
Found a frog in our bathroom, on the toilet!!!! Where the heck do those things come from? Oh wait, never mind, I really don’t want to think about the possibilities that could happen. Moving on…
We spent a week on Dauphin Island. That place is an awesome getaway if you just want to relax and play in the sand.
Saw this beautiful flower in our neighbor’s yard at the beach. I’m not sure what it is though.
This is not the sharpest picture but I like it. To me, it looks like one you would see in a magazine about wildlife. I think they are egrets but I’m not sure.
This guy was just standing on the beach, in the middle of all those people. Just doing his own little thing I guess.
We took Rileigh to the beach with us. She traveled very well for her first really long trip. She spent most of the time asleep on our lap. She looks so sweet in this picture.
And one last picture…
Doesnt’ that look delicious? And can you believe the picture was taken with my phone? Cameras on phones sure have come a long way!
Hope to see you soon!
