Through the Lens Thursday: Twisted

I realize you’re all sick of seeing my dog. I know that. But I have had a long week and my creativity for the prompt was nonexistent, so you get action shots of a tug of war game with Louise’s twisted rope toy (she’s all better from the surgery and allowed to play again).

Again, I apologize. I’ll try to be more creative next week.

Through The Lens Thursday is a self-improvement photography project that Alison of Writing, Wishing and I are doing this year (again!).

Don’t forget to join our Flickr group or share your own posts if you’d like to follow along and work on your own photography! And use the hashtag #throughthelensthursday to connect with others working on it, too.

Next week’s prompt is WORDS.

What’s Up, Yo.

I’m eating my breakfast now, the breakfast that I forced myself to finish cooking before I sat down to write this. I’ve had a super annoying habit lately of burning my food when I get even the slightest bit distracted, so while I cooked it, I thought of all of the things I wanted toContinue Reading

A Look Back Over My Shoulder at 2014

Ah, 2014. I think it was a good year. It was often uneventful, but challenging. I had some failures, and some accomplishments, and hopefully, they balanced each other out. 2014 was the year I sent another kid off to school all day, every day, when Essie went to kindergarten, and ended up with one atContinue Reading

Project 365: Week 50

Dec. 7 I just can’t even with the Build A Bear vest and the sleeping puppy face. Dec. 8 I don’t seem to have taken a picture, but I did share this one of Erv at 8 months old. Dec. 9 Reading some bedtime stories in the morning. Dec. 10 My oldest daughter did this.Continue Reading

Project 365: Week 47

Nov. 16 Even after the kids go to bed, I’ve still got somebody wanting thisclose to me. Nov. 17 I love bloggy friends, and I super love when they send me lovely things in the mail, like this stripey hand-painted card from Clare of Girl Fifteen, who has been playing along with Through the LensContinue Reading

My Personal Bubble Has Been Popped

So, I’ve been solo parenting for a week now, and it’s not going to end any time soon (relatively….you know, for a mom of four young kids in the beginning of winter….another week and a half feels like FOREVER), but the hardest part this time around isn’t just the lack of energy or patience toContinue Reading

Through the Lens Thursday: Shine

It was a sun-shiny day, and I had plans to try to capture my favorite swing photos, but from another angle to try to change it up. I ended up with very different pictures, though. The dog and two kids trying to shoot her…in very different ways, but both concentrating very hard. Through The LensContinue Reading

Through The Lens Thursday: Tall

Before I get into this week’s prompt, I just wanted to make sure that everyone knew my co-TTLTer’s news…Alison had her babies! She delivered her twins this week at 34 weeks, and they’re doing great. Still in the NICU but growing and feeding and getting stronger every day. Go show Alison some love on herContinue Reading

Go Out and Play!

The kids have been back to school for about two and a half weeks. I’m exhausted, frankly, and so is the toddler that’s not yet in school. But the kids that ARE in school? They’ve got energy. I don’t know where it comes from. They work hard all day, they have two recesses in theContinue Reading
