Day 56 (Day 172) Coiled


I almost used the theme "What is this?" instead of "coiled", because it could fit either.  Anyone know what this is?

For processing (PSE), I used a screen layer, and then added a dark texture with a vignette.

Day 54 (Day 170) Burgandy


I hope the color comes out right for everyone.  My computer monitors tend to fool me sometimes.  But you are going to have to trust me that these are burgundy!  These chairs are lined up neatly inside my office.  Why?  I don't know.  When we moved our offices to this new space, my boss seemed to think I would need them.  I rarely have enough people in my office at once to fill them all.  There is one more of these chairs right in front of my desk that he always sits at when he comes in to chat.  But I guess my office is big enough to house them, so there they sit.

Day 53 (Day 169) Breakfast


Taken with my point and shoot (Canon SD 890 IS) and I took it quickly.  I didn't want to look like a dork taking a picture of my food!  Oops! Too late!  I am a dork!  Ha ha!

This was at iPod (that is IHOP for those of you that do not speak my son's language), and it was yummy!  Blueberry Harvest Nut 'n Grain Pancakes with bananas on top, along with egg beaters.  I also topped the pancakes with sugar free syrup.  Yes, they have it - you just have to ask!  I know this may not sound appetizing to most, but to me it was very good!

Day 52 (Day 168) Blue


Our daughter has the most amazing blue eyes.  I just wish I were more talented to capture them in crystal clear focus!  But it is a challenge with a fast moving subject!

Day 50 (Day 166) Barn


A friend of mine told me about this barn, and I just had to find it, and use it for my barn theme.  I love the quilt pattern painted on it! 

I thought it looked too pristine, so I used a couple of textures, and added a yellow layer to give it a more aged look.  There was also a basketball hoop in the picture that I used the clone tool to remove.

Day 49 (Day 165) Empty


Yep, you guessed it!  I used the "empty" theme as the follow up to the last "candy" post!  They were yuuuuuummeee, too!  I can't believe we left some chocolate crumbs behind!

Day 48 (Day 164) Candy


Here is what the box looked like before we started to dig in!

Day 47 (Day 163) Athletic


I had skipped this theme a while back, because I couldn't think of anything to photograph.  Then I was going to actually try to get my son in action, with his boxing gloves on, and punching this bag.  But he would not cooperate.  So, here it is, just the bag.

Day 46 (Day 162) Bloom


I was going to save this theme for some spring blooms, but my hubby surprised me with a small bouquet of flowers for Valentine's Day, so what the heck.  I will go for it now.

Day 45 (Day 161) Cupcakes


A Valentine's Day cupcake, made lovingly by my mommy.

Day 44 (Day 160) Best Friends

Best Friends

My best friend is going to be hitting a milestone birthday on Tuesday, so we went out to celebrate! (I am on the left)

Day 43 (Day 159) Critters


We have seen a lot of different critters visit our backyard through the years.  But because our yard is fenced, we don't usually see too many animals bigger than a squirrel make it inside.  But somehow this little possum burrowed under our privacy fence, and found some things to nibble on.

Nasty little things, but somehow he has a cuteness about him too!

Day 42 (Day 158) Hearts


We order one of these every year around Valentine's Day.  They always offer a deal with a special heart-shaped pizza, and a dessert.  Yum!

Day 41 (Day 157) Cold


Not going with an artsy or great quality photo today.  Just wanted to show how stinkin' cold it is here today (Northern Indiana).  Wind Chills are -20!

Day 38 (Day 154) Black and White

Black and White

Day 37 (Day 153) Bold

Bold - not hesitating or fearful in the face of actual or possible danger.

Boy, is this girl is going to be trouble for me!  I turn my back for a second and found her like this.  She has been awfully bold in her new found mobility!  More gates for us!

Yes, I know she is wearing a Colts jersey.  I despise both teams in the Super Bowl, so I am protesting, and we are supporting a team that should have been there instead!

Day 36 (Day 152) Celebration


On Saturday, we celebrated a little one's first birthday.  She is the daughter of some dear friends of ours, and she is only five weeks younger than our Allie.  There was a zebra theme, and it was so cute!  I was very impressed with the cake - I know this is something I am not capable of, although I would love to learn how to do it someday!

Day 35 (Day 151) Broken


This tank has seen it's last battle!  I wonder if my son will even miss it? 

Day 34 (Day 150) Bread


Ok, so it is actually a bun.  Close enough to bread in my book.  We had hamburgers for dinner.  Yum!

Day 33 (Day 149) Freeze Frame

Freeze Frame

I have been wanting to try doing this for a couple of weeks now.  I think it turned out ok, considering I do not have the right equipment for this.  But it isn't bad for a first try.

Day 32 (Day 148) Body Parts

Body Parts

Sometimes my son grabs my camera and snaps away.  As you can imagine, I find some very interesting pictures later when I empty my SD card.  Not sure what he was aiming at here, but it fits perfectly for this theme!

Day 31 (Day 147) Chocolate


Cherry Cordial to be exact.  And yes, I popped it into my mouth after I took this photo!  Yum!!
