I Spy - Heat

Photobucket



This week has been a bit weird for me. I haven't been feeling so hot. It seems that some of my meds don't like me so much. My stomach has been trying to revolt. Never fear though! I have a couple of photos for you. So link up with me and Dazee at Crazy Daze and Night Dreams to have the most fun you can while sharing your photos. Come on! I know you want to.

Next week's categories are "Buttons" and "Your Choice". I DARE YOU!!! Now to my entries!

Heat

Last year when my brother and his family came to visit, the temps were really miserable. The only way to cool off was to hit the river.

August-2011-0312

Now this is just for me and my fascination with taking photos of motors, old cars, and anything associated.

Your Choice

I just love this face!

Tuesday and Twitter Trains Are Ready For Boarding!

Photobucket



Hey! Hey! Hey! How are you all doing this week? I can tell I'm ready for fall. I am so past the long drug out summer. I'm ready to start shooting some fall colors and cooler days. I'm not a fan of heat and humidity. The problem has been that it all started early this year. We had a very mild winter last year. That causes other issues like some things don't die. Allergies have been horrible this summer for me and my daughter. Maybe we will have some bone chilling cold for a little while this year and we can have a better summer next year. Keep your fingers crossed for that.

In the meantime, link up with me, Shellie at Shellie Sakai, and Jen at The Survival Mama for the train ride. You know you love it and we're boarding now!

Now on to the next big thing in blogging. I know that some of you love to take photos as much as I do. Dazee, at Crazy Daze and Night Dreams, is my awesome, funny, and super co-host on a photo hop with me on Thursdays we call I Spy. I think you should link up with us and share the love. We sure do love it. Grab the button and show us what you see behind your lens. This week's categories are "Heat" and "Your Choice"

The Hunt!


It's that time of the week again to share some photos with many others who also want to share. So just link up with Ashley at Ramblings and Photos and have some fun sharing your photos! Come on! You know you want to! These are my entries this week.

School

Excel is not my forte so I will have to brush up on it to finish my Bachelor's. I'm kind of dreading it.

August-2012-003

Rule of Thirds

I don't know if this is right but I hope so.

March-2012-057

Side Profile

My son-in-law hates to let me take his photo. This is his normal pose for me.

August-2012-013

Small

This is small in comparison to most modern tractors.

August-2011-040

Motion

My grandson just can't get enough of the water, so his dad, my son, started throwing him while we were on the sandbar today. That boy is fearless!

I Spy - Water

Photobucket



Not a lot has been going on this week. So I don't have much to tell anyone. I'm still having car problems but that will, hopefully, be solved soon. It sure would be nice. So for now, I expect all of you to link up with Dazee and me for the oh-so-fabulous I Spy photo sharing hop that you know you want to do. So link up with me and Dazee at Crazy Daze and Night Dreams to have the most fun you can while sharing your photos. Come on! I know you want to.

Next week's categories are "Heat" and "Your Choice". I DARE YOU!!! Now to my entries!

Water

Last weekend my family, along with a few extras like my daughter's in laws, took the houseboat out and beached it on one of the sand bars on the Mississippi River. It was really the first time we were able to take Maddy with us. You see, Paige was still very scared of dogs before this year and we didn't take Maddy because it would have caused issues. Well Maddy had so much fun, she was worn out soon after we beached.

August-2012-053

And this is a photo of the ugly houseboat. Supposedly the color is salmon. It looks pink to me.

August-2012-049

And here's the view from the top.

Your Choice

I had several I could choose from but Maddy was so funny that she took most of the honors.

August-2012-030

And then there's the interaction between Paige and Maddy. Paige had been playing fetch, (yes my daughter was treating her like a dog...lol), and Paige decided to get Maddy in on the act.

Now you know you want to join this kind of fun so let's see what you have!

Tuesday and Twitter Trains Are Ready For Boarding!

Photobucket



How's everyone doing this week? I'm still having fun with the guys at work. It isn't that work is always fun but the guys I work with are just fun to be around. They pretty much treat me like one of them. Jokes go both ways and they are usually hilarious.

One of the most common is the "truck set up". We have two delivery trucks and I'm the main driver. That doesn't mean I'm the only person who delivers parts. And it also doesn't mean that I use the same truck every time. So the guys think it's funny to back the truck up and over the concrete curb that stops vehicles before they run up on the sidewalk. They also enjoy blasting the radio on a station I NEVER listen to. So not only do I have to hop the curb, I also have to deal with a loud stereo and the wipers are generally on even if it isn't raining. Yeah.....that's what I have to put up with. Aren't I lucky? I know you're jealous.

So you know you want to link up with me, Shellie at Shellie Sakai, and Jen at The Survival Mama for the train ride. You know you love it and we're boarding now!

I know that some of you love to take photos as much as I do. Now Dazee, at Crazy Daze and Night Dreams, is my awesome, funny, and super co-host on a photo hop with me on Thursdays.

Forest

It was a "forest" of tulips. Sorry, this was an archived photo. But it was this year!

April-2012-028

Morning Light

Unfortunately, that's all the morning light we've had lately. We are finally getting rain.

August-2012-011

Touch

This is what my son's "touch" is like. Between his son and his niece, they thought he was just being goofy.

August-2012-003

Newspaper

I don't read a newspaper but I get my news on the tablet every day.

August-2012-037

Coffee or Tea

What else would it be but Columbian?

Beautiful Blue!

Ah...the '56 Chevy BelAir. The overlooked older brother of the coveted '57 model. This one was just gorgeous. Completely restored and awesome. Just one of the many cool cars I get to see while working at a parts store. Don't you just love the bullet lights?

I Spy - Plants

Photobucket



It seems Dazee and I have both been having problems with inspiration this week. Is it the fact that no one wants to link up with our fabulous little day of photo fun? I think so. With almost 1000 followers between us, you would think we could get a few of you to link up. So what's the deal? What's the issue? We only wish to share our photos with you and vice versa. Please! I'm practically begging and I just don't do that! Now link up with Dazee at Crazy Daze and Night Dreams to have the most fun you can while sharing your photos. Come on! I know you want to.

Next week's categories are "Water" and "Your Choice". I DARE YOU!!! Now to my entries!

Plants

With little inspiration this week I chose to show a weed. Yes, it's a weed. Why you ask? Because the drought has made only this plant grow in the vicinity of the yard. I know, obvious.

August-2012-007

This one I pulled from the archives. Of course, it was only taken about a week ago, but it was taken in a park and this was in the pond that is supplied with water by the city. Beautiful isn't it?

July-2012-047

Your Choice

This was taken last weekend in the harbor as the sun set. I love the reflection off the water.

August-2012-009

Now come on! You know how to do this.

Tuesday and Twitter Trains!

Photobucket



It's another week and another Train ride is upon us. I've noticed that someone has deserted me lately. Actually two. I think I'm losing my edge. I seriously need to write a few posts instead of just sharing my photos and riding the train. I'm not sure why but for months now it's been really hard to find something to write about. I never thought that would happen with me but writer's block seems to have found a way to worm its way into my mad mind and stop anything but the two hops I do consistently every week. I guess I just need some inspiration. We'll see if I can find some this week. Wish me luck. In the meantime, board the train and join the party!

Come on! Link up with me, Shellie at Shellie Sakai, and Jen at The Survival Mama for the train ride. You know you love it and we're boarding now!

I know that some of you love to take photos as much as I do. Now Dazee, at Crazy Daze and Night Dreams, is my awesome, funny, and super co-host on a photo hop with me on Thursdays.
