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 185 - July 4, 2011

Wild Mushroom
Well, I'll confess, I didn't actually take any pictures at all on July 4th.  I didn't have any plans on the 4th, but I called a couple of lady friends from church on the chance that they were like me--alone on the 4th.  We had a great lunch together and watch a couple of movies.  It turned out to be a great day.  I had several opportunities for pics, but I've been so exhausted with the fibro--the worst attack that I've had in years, that taking a photo just escaped me, I guess.

So, today is a cheat day.  I made myself go out for several walks with the dog and took a couple of pics while I was out.  Forgive me for not visiting too many of your blogs the last few days. All I have wanted to do is sleep and sleep and sleep .  . .  lol  . . . This too shall pass!


  1. You are forgiven.When the fibre hits hard like that,one has no interest in doing much.Take care of yourself,my friend.

  2. Mushroom!!! I was looking forward to a wet summer so I could find some mushrooms--but as we know we have nothing but DRY HOT weather. Love it, Cheryl. Hope you feel better soon.

  3. Hope you feel better soon!

  4. Seems you had a nice relaxed day amongst friends, exactly what you needed I think.
