I did not take this pic, but I saw a similar effect yesterday driving to Ashtabula Kent Campus. It was actually even more striking than this if that is possible. The silver-tipped trees against the blue sky was very similar, but there was also the effect I could see, while driving and unable to stop and use my cell phone camera, of the rays of sun casting a sideways silvery glow across the sky adding to the blue and iced trees. It was magnificent! I was full speed ahead to take my Math exam, which I was late for, and I wished I could stop on the way back to take the pictures but by then the effect was gone. But the vision in my mind remains.
One thing I wish I could take the time to do, and the money of course, is to learn to use a better camera and take really magnificent pictures! But until then I will enjoy others’ and snap away with my Android phone which doesn’t do too bad —
Some of my favorites I’ve taken:
God’s beauty in all seasons is amazing!
In other news, on the 30th I’ll be on my MFP (my Fitness Pal) plan for one month and so far I’ve lost 5 pounds!! I’m the lowest I’ve been since about 2007.
16th birthday party is all done and in the books. I think Colleen and her friends had a good time. I worked on and off the whole time, and we had a busy weekend with also taking Chris to the park with Ryan and Rog too. Rog is feeling a lot better.
I actually still need to send the one blog post still on to the Congresspeople about how there really needs to be way more help in Ohio for individuals with disabilities needing medication adjusting. More posts, prayers, calls, and arrangements are still needed. But thankfully Chris is doing better at this point and we really enjoyed our time at the park with him this weekend!
I have been excited to find Windows Live Photo Gallery and with it Live Space, and plan to gradually get all my photos on there. So going to work on that on and off. Also, long story about how financial aid was messed up for me this summer deleted but short story is that I should be back in my class by tomorrow and have lots of homework to do! busy!
I accidentally have June following the July ones – but ah well!
Took them to a birthday party today. We hadn’t seen Amber since January. She’s really growing up – it’s amazing. I will never forget when I met Amber – she was 4 years old and met Colleen on the sidewalk as Colleen had just learned to ride her bike —
They have been great friends ever since.
This was a beautiful snow that just clung to the trees and didn’t affect the roads for rush hour much —
He will be missed. I found him when I was giving him an apple last night…
