WELCOME TO February 2019 PHOTO FUN


Through this group I've made some wonderful friends and enjoy meeting new friends in our group each and every month. If you are joining for the first time this month, you're in for a treat - what a FABULOUS group of caring/sharing women. Welcome everyone!

Lots of us have cameras we use now and again for a snapshot or two. Some of us have new cameras itching to be put to use and get more familiar with. Sound like FUN?! It IS!!!! Get your camera out and USE it. Just take pictures, share pictures, and stretch your camera use beyond where it is today. We all love photos -and photos are the heart and soul of our scrapbooks. Let's take GREAT photos - Experiment. Try different lighting, try "on location" shoots -even if that means taking an orange outside and taking it's photo on the lawn.

******************

RULES:

1- Take 10 photo's throughout the month. These can be of what ever you choose. You may post them at any time (just try not to post all at once). Please link them to your gallery for easy access for comments.

2 - NO STRESS - if you aren't having fun it's not worth doing

3 - Comments - We all LOVE comments on our photos so please make an effort to visit/comment as possible, but ---
SEE RULE 2 - NO STRESS. If you don't have time to comment on photos (or can only comment on some) that's FINE!

4 - MISSING PHOTOS - SO WHAT? See rule 1 - NO STRESS. Life gets in the way - it happens to all of us. Post your photos when you can - See RULE 1 - NO STRESS

Just join in and SHARE!!!

End Of Month Photo Contest **NOTICE THERE IS NO END OF MONTH POLL FOR THIS MONTH

We will be having an end of month photo contest each month. You may submit 1 photo YOU have personally taken. PM me with it by the date requested to be entered in our POLL. Oh, make sure you have the "Allow Public Embedding" checked so I may post it in the poll. We will have one winner per month unless there is a tie. If you are the monthly winner PM me your address. I will be looting my personal scrapbook stash to share with you to help keep my cost down. You might find an extra surprise in there too! Just so it's fair to all our players...please make sure if you submit a photo for the contest you have completed all 10 photo's for the month and YOU have personally taken them during the current month. The mini challenge photo's are not required, simply for fun. You can however, submit one of your challenge photo's (mini's) to the contest.

**End of Month photo contest entry deadline: February ____ by ____ EST (I will post poll by evening of the _____)

Evening!

U had a good game tonight. We won, he got the last goal...empty net. He's spending the night with a teammate (along with another kid on the team). They have a game in southern In tomorrow afternoon which we will not be going to. DH is working at the demo building. I guess I could go too but I plan of heading back to the med check and have my stitches taken out.

Night all!

Afternoon!

U got the win for his team today in a shootout. We ended the game in a tie so 5 kids from each team got to shoot on the goalie. U was the first one out and the only kid to score! This was a big win...we were down several kids today and their bench was full. They are also a very good team. Many of them U has played with in the past. I was a good win!

Of to the demo site again today. Need to gather up stuff we have set back...today could be the last day we can get in....it's going day by day at this point. It's so nice out that I don't mind going. I think 58 is our high today. I even have a couple of windows open.

JCI....kinda rainy here today.

The day has flown by..possibly working the demo building this afternoon...DH is there so U and I might go out for a while.

The 2 little dogs have grooming appointments tomorrow morning. I usually do it but I don't do near as good a job as they do. It's time for them to really get a decent groom. I'm scared to do around the face & privates...they hate me to do their undersides and legs. Their area is a complete mud pit and they are filthy, lol! Going to try to get Jonesy in before long too, I especially want him groomed good before he has his surgery (neutering but not scheduled yet). He is back to his nice loving self since being back on his daily med, tomorrow will be 2 weeks.

Time to pick up my boy...BBL

Susi glad to see you!!

Pouring rain! We have gotten an 1" here so far with at least 2 more expected by tomorrow. Some areas could see even a couple more inches than that! Standing water all over and is wreaking havoc for the morning commute.

Got the 2 little dogs groomed yesterday (I took them to a groomer for a really good groom this time). The groomer said Twiggy had 2 ear infections so she has a vet appointment later this morning. Both littles look so funny! They look like they have shrunken heads compared to their bodies, lol! Twiggy's fur helped hide some of her girth....I think she has a complex now.....hehehehe!

BBL!

Denise...the stick was lit on fire just before each kid entered the ice. They stopped for a pic then skated over to have it put out. At that time they were given a rose and skated over to the balloon arch where family were waiting on the ice for more pictures. I think I'll share a couple more pics of the night here in a few.

Tonight I signed Uriah up for driving class through his school! Lucky there was a Spring session still available! I think once he gets in the class he will be more comfortable and wish he's agreed sooner to learn to drive.....he will be 18 next month. He's only concerned he'll be the only Senior there, lol! I will be so glad when this kid starts driving!

Hello. Taught the boys school today. Boy were they not able to sit still or be quiet. ugh...

Tim and Mom and I took a drive yesterday to San Augustine, the "Cradle of Texas." Found this really, really old cemetery. There was the grave of a citizen of the Republic of Texas that had also fought in the American Revolutionary war. He no doubt felt strongly about freedom.

Hope all is well.

Hello!

I know Lori, there were so many views I could sit and take in all day everyday. Too many places to see, not enough time or money. sigh I could be a traveler for profession but then again there is no place like home either. lol I do love traveling since I was a kid. My dad had that wanderlust and taught it to me. We took 2 weeks a year and traveled when I was a kiddo. Every year we went somewhere. I've seen so many places, I am blessed to have had a dad that loved to travel and could take us. He saved all year long so we could take trips. Maybe that is why my brother is an over the road trucker, he gets to see places. Not the beautiful parks but the roadside beauty. Hmmm, never thought of that. He is so smart he could have had been an astronomer or a mathematician, his degree is in math he could have worked for NASA, or anything but drive a truck. He enjoys it I think so he is happy that is what matters.

You got it Denise....if that makes him happy.....you can't beat it!

We never went anywhere as a kid, 1 trip to Fla (Disney) in an RV with an older couple that were my mom's friends. I can't say it was all that fun, lol!

I did go on a few trips with my dad, most memorable was NYC. That was with our dance group (he owned a dance studio). I remember being in the Empire State Building and must have been so mesmerized with the ape in the elevator I got left. I also loved the Italian Ice and had a cow tongue sandwich while I was there.

The internet here was out most of the morning and then it just came on. Temps are dropping and today I'm trying to finish up a couple grinch faces to wrap up some scarves I have made.

Leaving Yellowstone park by the East entrance headed to Cody was a series of small lakes. I loved every single one and took many, many photos. Here are a few. LOL

Denise....I got 3 of the 4 finished with the exception of a pompom on the end. The 4th one is a child size so I'm trying to figure resizing the face parts. So I have 4 adult and 1 child grinch scarfs ready to go. I think I'll lay off them for a while, might make a couple more since I have the yarn to use up for them.

Dropped U off at the rink, ran to the store. I think he is going to grab something to eat after with a buddy whom will bring him home.

I can only remember one family vacation growing up. When your family runs a dairy farm, there really isn't time for a vacation. Farm life is 24/7/365. We got to go places with our friends and various 4-H camps.

Anna, I think that is why my dad loved to travel, he grew up on a farm.

JCI again.

U had a good weekend in Peoria. 3 games, 3 wins. He had two of the game winning goals and a goal in each game. We had nasty weather today, grey and lots of ice showers. DH and I ran to the store earlier..well before U was due home. Got in DH's car and it wouldn't start...had to wait on a buddy for a jump. I've told him for WEEKS to get a new battery...he's been having problems for a while. Men, they never listen!

Have a great evening!!
