Weekly Photo Challenge: Optimistic

GeorgiaStateBotanicalGardens_1

Sunshine and Blue Skies have been a rare occurrence in my neck of the woods. Knowing that spring is going to be here soon keeps me Optimistic that I wont pull a “Shining” moment and try to hack up my family. Rain for days with kids indoors is a test of patience. Having preteen girls that argue about anything and everything indoors 24/7, is enough to drive a saint to the point of murder. Ok, not quite to the point of homicide, but Im considering testing out duct tape to keep them separate and silent. For a few minutes anyway.

Gardening is Cheaper than Therapy.

  I can spend hours in the garden, getting my hands dirty while listening to music. Its my thing. The funny part is I hate bugs, spiders, basically anything that crawls. When I say Hate, mean I Really Hate them.. Its a legitimate phobia. Ive had several near death experiences with black widow spiders, so I probably look crazy as shit to my neighbors, always shreiking and jumping up when something moves. Its about the girliest thing I do. I get pretty damn high pitched when something freaks me out. I get violent when its something bigger that suprises me and scares the shit out me. I cant go to haunted houses because I swing when they get close and catch me off guard. The last person who jumped out and shouted “BOO” got clocked in the face. It was my husband, which i felt bad for like a second about. Needless to say he hasnt tried me like that since. Those Mad Ninja Skills I posses cant be contained sometimes.

==This post went from gardening to punching my husband in the face…. Im killing this blogging shit.

Random Visual Awesomeness (#1)

image

Ive been looking at other photography blogs and realized I didnt have to Title each photo, which I suck at, I can just number them. Is it a series, im not sure what the “terms” are.
Since I share single photos of all kinds of things its will definitely save time. So this is the first installment of Random Visual Awesomeness-
A collection of random, Awesome, photos of all the things I think are Beautiful.

This Photo was taken at a friends pond, my daughters and I frequent to fish for catfish. There is always a thousand dragonflies buzzing around, which keeps me from putting a pole in the water because Im too busy chasing them around with my camera. They have always been one of my favorite things. I have them everywhere around my house.
Hope Yall Dig It, if you do feel free to say so, or if you have any tips on running a blog. Id appreciate the feedback!

There is Fungus Among Us

image

I love living in the country, for many reasons. The quiet, the small community, being close to nature, and the lack of traffic to name a few. My in-laws have 60 acres of farmland and woods that my girls and I love to explore. We especially love hunting for mushrooms. We find the coolest looking fungi, all different sizes, shapes and colors. I never mind getting dirty when getting down low to get a good angle. Smurf level. This is one of my favs.

No snooze Saturday

Every Saturday Morning I have an alarm set to wake me up in hopes of photographing a gorgeous Sunrise. Unfortunately, I always hit the snooze button one too many times, losing the opportunity to catch it. I’ve even set My alarm to puzzle mode thinking it would keep me from sleeping in. This morning I hit it once, thankfully I only live a mile from this spot in Mistletoe State Park. I just did catch the beautiful sky right before the sun peeked over the trees. These dudes in the boat were hauling Ass by me wearing winter gear and goggles. I’m sorry but fishing isn’t worth freezing my Ass off even though I love it.

I hate Spiders

wp-1448709993520.jpegI hate Spiders so much. This guy almost gave me a heart attack while hunting for mushrooms in the woods with my daughters yesterday. I pulled some mad ninja moves when I looked down and saw him on my boot.  Seriously, it was a near death experience, shaving years off my life. I freaked out, but was able to snap a pic before he crawled away. Sweet pic after such a traumatic experience. O.. The things we do to get a great shot.
