About Me

My photo
I am usually typing on a computer most of the day, but today I am trying my hand at a new project: My 2011 365-Day Photo Journey. I gained a love for photography when I was required to take a fine arts class for college--I chose photography. The course required a lot of work--Professor Loehr saw to that--but it opened my eyes to a new world. It's been many years since I took that class and I don't know how much I actually remember, but following Laura Delagal's 365 Photo Journey and watching my niece's love for taking pictures has peeked my interested in photography again. Although I don't have a professional camera, I did receive a really nice Sony digital (point-and-shoot) camera from my sweetie for Christmas this year. Going through some difficult times in my life, I thought that undertaking my own 365-day photo journey might be a way to relieve a little stress and have some fun with my new toy. Through this journey I will capture some of life's joy and its pain, but I will also be able to refocus the lens of my life on the many wonderful things that God has created. Well, here goes. Wish me luck!

Day 178 - June 27, 2011

I saw a butterfly!
This isn't the best picture, but I'm afraid it's the only pic.  Today has been another rough day with mother.  I was called by the nursing home twice today to try to help settle mother down and to try to get her to take her medicine.  I had planned to go by to visit her this afternoon, but then changed my mind after talking to her twice.  However, during the second phone call, she remembered that I had planned to come and was wanting to know what time I was going to get there.  So, I came home, let the dog out, and headed to the nursing home for a short visit.  It was rough and I'm exhausted.  I didn't even get this photo edited.  It is SOOC without even my watermark on it.  I'll try to do better tomorrow.  But for tonight, I'm going to bed.

Goodnight my blog friends.  I hope I get a chance to visit some of your blogs over the next couple of nights.  Sweet dreams, and as one of my friends says, say a prayer for you and me!
