To Catch Up


Time for some catch-up!

We have been so busy that I haven’t been able to post as much as I’ve wanted to.  We’ve had company staying with us since late September, which has been very fun, but has filled our time.

So here is a pictorial synopsis of what we’ve been up to.  Don’t worry, there will be plenty of words, too.

On Friday we went to our first Winton’s concert of the week.  We’ve seen them twice before, so this isn’t our first Winton concert.  This is just our first one for the week.  (Now that I’ve just completely restated what was said in the first sentence, I think it is time to move on).  We attended two over the weekend, and will go to one more this weekend.  We are turning into groupies!

Trying to get a little more creative with my photos. I really love this one.  A lot.

The trees in our area are turning all sorts of lovely shades right now!  It is amazing that in these photos I posted a few weeks ago the same trees where still bright green.  Now they are vibrant yellows, oranges, and reds.  I saved a mirror from the trash a few weeks ago, so I could take it out and take pictures with it.  Since Mom wanted me to take pictures of the trees this past Saturday and Dad was cleaning out the garage, it seemed like a good time to use my mirror before getting rid of it.

Bare feet.  Colored leaves.  Jean skirts.  Autumn.

Sometimes trying to find the perfect white balance and exposure result in WAY to many pictures. 🙂

 I really like the effect of lying the mirror down on the ground.  Isn’t it neat how the ground is all out of focus, while the reflection isn’t?

Now there are no more green leaves out there.  Just lovely deep reds, vibrant golds, and a wonderful orange.

This was even harder than doing regular self portraits.  This is the best shot I got.  😛

There are even more leaves on the ground now!

On Sunday – looking out from our front porch to the left front corner of our yard – actually, the same place where I was taking pictures the previous day.  Now the oak that is in the left part of this photo is a deep red.  I’ll have to get a photo of it now.

When the sun peeped out from behind the clouds, it lit the trees in a much more interesting way.

Doesn’t God make the most beautiful colors for Autumn?

 

Yesterday I went over to a friends’ home to a talk about health.  Quite a few ladies came, and we all just sat around the table, and shared about our health journeys, asked questions, and told what we have been learning.  It was so wonderful to sit there with all these women, all in different places, who are all seeking health, while seeking God’s will.  It was an amazing time and such a wonderful opportunity.  I feel so incredibly blessed to have been able to attend, and to know all these ladies.  Thank you so much, A. family, for hosting and organizing it!

 

Until the next time post,

    1. Thank you, Brytni!

      We are doing pretty well, except that my brother is sick. 😦 Well, we are hoping he will be better soon (and that nobody else gets it – that reminds me, I need to go take my tincture, tonic, and syrup…).

      It has been too long! We need to get together sometime soon. 🙂
