During my 366 blog, this is the image I shot on 12/28/2012. I love the unique qualities of a vintage sign. I kept it on the side of my garden tub and was reminded daily of the giver … my daughter.
After contemplating doing a photo a day for 2018, I have decided against it. Once is enough for that kind of project. It was fun back then, but in some ways it drove me a little crazy. A little crazy? A lot crazy if the truth be told. LOL!
Best wishes for a fabulous 2018! Be blessed, my friends.
Be good to yourself and each other. Namaste’
This image is one I posted on December 31, 2012 when I was doing a photo a day for the whole year. It applies now just as it did then. A simple wish that you, my fellow bloggers and faithful readers of this blog, will have a most prosperous and wonderful New Year. May it be filled with everything you wish for. We are all kindred spirits and I am grateful to be part of your world. God bless you and keep you in His loving protection. Thank you for being here and remember to be good to yourself and each other. Focus on what makes you happy. Namaste’
Well, here I am again. This time without the pressure of a photo a day … but how long did I last without posting a photo? Only a couple of days!
I’d like you to meet my new muse. In fact, that’s her name – Funky Monkey Muse. I struggled with a name for her and while I was contemplating that, I decided to play with some editing software. And of course this photo became my latest creation. Made me laugh just to do it. I hope it brings you at least a smile, too.
Maybe that’s what this new year should be all about … less struggle, more laughter, more light-heartedness. More of feeling like a kid and being playful. I’ll tip my hat to that.
Keep an eye out for more Funky Monkey Muse adventures. I think she will travel with me. Namaste’
THIS IS IT! WOW! The end of my 366 challenge. Please read the photo to know how I feel about all of you, my faithful readers. (Click photo to enlarge). I’ll see you on the other side in a bright and shiny new year. I’m taking New Year’s Day off for sure 🙂 Namaste’
Cold and overcast day so I decided to go with WS over to the local barista and have some coffee and a snack this afternoon. This morning bun caught my eye and it sure tasted good; I ate the whole thing. So what if it was 2:30 in the afternoon!
We then came home and took down some Christmas decorations. Kind of a lazy day. I liked it. Hope yours was really good as well. Namaste’
Today I delivered all of the “artsy” photo cards I made for my client of those 17 horses … well actually it was 16. Somehow I forgot Maude, so I photographed her today while I was there. She’s such a sweet and gentle horse and is for sale. If you know someone looking for a chestnut with soulful eyes, she’s your gal. Namaste’
Yesterday was such a surprise with two gifts coming in the mail. The clock (yesterday’s post) from WS’s daughter and then the antique French soap label from my daughter. She even framed it for us in an antique frame. I promise not to polish it 🙂
We love both of our gifts, girls!!!! Namaste’ Only three days to go, people, until the end of my 366 project. But I’ll keep blogging 🙂
Well, here it is, folks. We’re on the downhill slope of 2012. Just a few days to go. We received a Christmas gift today from WS’s daughter in New Hampshire. And one from my daughter in California. But that will be a photo for tomorrow.
I’m afraid this image doesn’t do it justice – it’s simply a WOW! clock. (Click to enlarge the picture) … Swarovsky crystal elements and it plays one of 48 different songs on the hour. And yet it won’t do it once the lights in the room are out, so as not to wake us up during the night. Pretty clever, eh?
I finally finished the horses. I photographed 17 horses, all edited to be artsy, had prints made and then created 144 handmade cards out of the photos. I’ll post some of the photos in the new year.
2013 is almost here! Namaste’
WS got me a gorillapod for Christmas. I’m so happy! It’s very portable, easy to use and those legs are just as good as Gumby :-). (For those of you not into photography, it’s a tripod for my cameras). It twists and turns and can bend into just about any way I need it to. Namaste’
What we thought would be kind of a sad day turned out very well. We were hoping to have my stepdad out of the skilled nursing home at least for Christmas Day, but that turned out to not be the case. Instead, we took all the presents and went to where he is. His daughter and her husband were there from the midwest and we all had a great time. Stepdad was happy that we were all there. Everyone ate lunch together at the nursing home. I guess if I had to be in one of those places, I would sure want my loved ones around me. I hope he’ll remember at least some of the moments we all shared today.
Here’s a shot of me and WS. Obviously I didn’t take this picture, so I’m breaking the rules of the photo-a-day project, but hey, I’ve broken lots of rules before – LOL!
Hope your Christmas Day was spectacular in every way. Namaste’
