Travel 10/5 | Part 4| Disc Golfing

Heyyyaaahhh!

Here I am for part four, which I’ve been eagerly waiting to show you. ๐Ÿ˜€

On 10/5, we decided to go disc golfing with our cousins—which had it successes and failures. I took a lot of cool pictures, but we all stunk at disc golf. ๐Ÿ˜‰ Plus, their were some not-so-good attitudes along the way. But you know what? It was nice to just spend time with the family, and worth any of the minuses we might have experienced!

The day started off with me doing silhouettes with the earlier-morning light. I will warn you though that I didn’t actually camera document all of the day, as I did other things that aren’t pictured. ๐Ÿ˜€

A Few of my Favorite Things

Hello!

This post will be answering a few ‘about me’ questions. Most of it is just in regards to a few things I like or use. If y’all would like, answer the questions for yourselves in the comments! That would be fun…

Question #1. What is your favorite flower?

IMG_6853.JPG
Answer: Hydrangeas.ย 

 

Question #2. What is currently yourย favorite kind of tea (substituteย for beverage if you don’t like tea)?

IMG_6802.JPG
Answer: Hibuscus Ginger Organic tea, by Tao of Life.ย 

Question #3. A favorite beauty product?

Answer: Maybelline New York, The Colossal Volum Express mascara.ย 

 

Question #4. Apples or oranges?

IMG_6824.JPG
Answer: I love apples! Especially sweet, crunchy, organic ones ๐Ÿ˜€ .ย 

 

Question #5. One book you read recently that you would highly recommend?

IMG_6828.JPG
Answer: Mansfield Park, by Jane Austen. This book kept me on my toes. And frustrated! ๐Ÿ˜‰

 

Question #6. What is something you baked recently that turned out?

IMG_6827.JPG
Answer: Gluten-free biscuits. Laugh all you like, people. I am gluten-free and thoroughly enjoy finding new things to try. They may not be those lovely fluffy southern thingys y’all are used to…but they still taste good!

 

Question #7. One book you read as a younger kid and still love?

IMG_6831.JPG
Answer: Keeping Holiday, by Starr Meade. I love this book so much! It’s a great read, and we read it when I as younger as an ‘out-loud’ family book. It’s clean, religious, and is a somewhat ‘allegory’ novel.ย 

 

Question #8. What are your favorite therapeutic products?

IMG_6832.JPG
Answer: Essential oils! I love Edens gardens for our diffuser, and Doterra for putting in mint chip ice cream ๐Ÿ˜€ .ย 

 

 

Question #9. Show one photo you recently took that you like?

IMG_6778.JPG
Dogwoods!

Little announcement~My next post will be a writing post, on…WRITER’S BLOCK! Because I haven’t done a post on writing in a little while. Also, my writing blog is going to be doing a fun little post. I will use two writing prompts to begin a fun little story. It’s not up yet, but when it is–you can check it out here:ย http://midnightwriter2000.blogspot.com/

“Snow Day”| A Life Update

IMG_2722.JPG

 

Last y’all heard I was pining away for a good snowfall to play in. This post is to tell you…I got one! Now I want a better one though. Several inches this time? Please?…. ๐Ÿ™‚ .

But this post will also be giving you some other updates on my life currently.

1. SNOW!!!!

I already did a post on Lucillian Photography called Snow Portraitsย which you can take a look at if you haven’t already. Here are some random ones that I’m pretty sure are NOT on my other blog.

p.s These are blissfully unedited ๐Ÿ™‚ .ย IMG_2706.JPG

And this is a ‘beautiful’ underexposed photo. Oh well. It’s funny anyways. ๐Ÿ™‚

2. The ‘Horrors’ of High School.

I am balancing a fairly big workload right now in school. Thankfully, I have deadlines so I’m not stuck on one thing for forever.

 

Not pictured: several other things, the most notable of which is my math course for this year. I am NOT posting a picture of that ๐Ÿ™‚ .ย 

 

3. Taking Silhouette Photos.

One thing I am semi-obsessed with right now in photography- silhouettes. They’re not those impressive sunset silhouettes. They’re just window silhouettes.ย I’m only posting one of them because I want the rest for another post later on.

4. Blowing Things Up.

Now, lest you think I am secretly an atomic bomb keeper–I am speaking ofย accidentally blowing up a half-boiled egg in the microwave and having to clean up the colossal mess that ensued. ๐Ÿ™‚

 

5. Shooting People While They Shoot Others.

This is another heading which could get me into ‘trouble’. But y’all know about the fun kids have shooting each other with Nerf guns?

IMG_2853.JPG
Sorry about the graininess of the photo. Our house has really bad lighting late at night (aka- after the sun sets). I had to compromise with the ISO and the shutter speed. The result? The above photo ๐Ÿ˜ฆ ๐Ÿ™‚ ๐Ÿ˜‰ .ย 

6. My Mild Obsession With Photographing These Roses.

When our friends were over Mr. H bought his wife some roses. I was so thrilled as I love roses (yeah, they weren’t for me, lol.) because now I could take some photos. They actually lasted pretty long. The very last photo is the last photo I got to take of them before they met their demise ๐Ÿ˜ฆ ย .

7. Everyday Life ๐Ÿ™‚ .

And that’s a wrap!

 

What have y’all been up to?

What little things do you do during the week?

Do you like this type of post?

Vacation|Part Two| 11/3

Welcome to part two of my vacation posts!

Vacation| Part Two| 11/3ย 

This post covers the happenings of day two (part two) which happened November the 3rd.

IMG_2661.JPG
Pretty much the first thing I did on 11/3 after having lunch, was to head out to snap some photos of the marigolds in our relatives’ front yard. It was a great opportunity and I love marigolds!
IMG_2679.JPG
BTW I am only posting my least favorite marigold pictures. My most favorite are getting posted on Lucillian Photography.

IMG_2680.JPG

Then right after I took those photos, our cousins Steven, Theo, and Emmett came over. They played games with my siblings…

IMG_2681.JPG

IMG_2682.JPG
N. tried to put the kiddie hoop back up, but he had trouble all by himself.
IMG_2683.JPG
So E. came to lend a helping hand…but…
IMG_2684.JPG
Sometimes, it takes more than one to get the job done ๐Ÿ™‚ !
IMG_2685.JPG
Sometimes when a set of little, determined feet get at the ball and run with it…it’s best not to try to take it. ๐Ÿ™‚
IMG_2686.JPG
See what I mean? Those little guys never give up! It’s like Smeagol with his ‘precious’… ๐Ÿ™‚ .

Later in the day I spent some time down by the lake. I enjoyed taking some photos of it…and the flowers and shells, of course.

If you click on this photo, it will send you off to the Boone Lake post on Lucillian Photography. That post contains the lake photos from several different days though. I’ll just skip to some shell/flower photos next.

IMG_2710.JPG
Hand and feet prints are always something I have been rather fascinated with. I always like impressions, and things of that kind.
IMG_2714.JPG
This is just a quick photo of the lake–which I’m posting here because I decided not to post it on Lucillian Photography. I try not to reuse too many pictures.
IMG_2732.JPG
So I know that these are technically poke berries, but I prefer to call them ‘nightlock’. ๐Ÿ™‚

IMG_2728.JPG

 

Then apparently I went a little crazy and started taking photos of all the beautiful flowers around the property. I’m going to go easy on the pictures at this point because there’s another post on Lucillian Photography that I’m working on right now ๐Ÿ™‚ .

IMG_2739.JPG

IMG_2740.jpg
Then I grabbed J. for a few fast photos. I don’t like the angle on this one, but the background is nice.
IMG_2742.JPG
And this is just a nice natural, earthy shot. I almost wanted to plop on the ground and have a nap in the grass. Almost ๐Ÿ˜‰ .ย 
IMG_2741.JPG
And this one is just funny.ย 

IMG_2744.JPG

IMG_2752.JPG

It’s amazing how quickly the sun sets after the golden hour now. It didn’t take long at all, and you could literally watch the sun set…

And there was night.

Boone Lake (L.P)

This is just a quickie saying that there’s a new post on Lucillian Photographyย !! It’s called Boone Lake. As you may or may not know from another recent post…that’s one of the places we were at during our one-week vacation. It’s a beautiful lake, and a lovely childhood memory for me.

 

So check it out if you’d like ๐Ÿ™‚
