Day 13 - Reminds Me of My Childhood

This is a rest area between Yerington and Smith Nevada.  I spent many happy moments in this river, Walker River.  Caught my first fish here, swam on so many occasions, brought my children here.  I love Nevada!  My childhood was mountains, desert, desert streams, sagebrush, and swim team...the "desert fish".  I have a bag filled with sand and sage from this area.  After 4 years, it still smells of home!

Day 12 - Sun Flare

This was a fun picture.  Trying to get the sun, I usually get it by accident.

This is Nevada 2007, our first sunrise at my mama's.  I LOVE Nevada!  It just smells amazing!

Day 11 - Silhouette

I had to read about this kind of photography.  I found it fascinating!  This was the first shot I took on the morning of the 11th.  I tried to get my golden in silhouette...didn't work.  Either his coloring threw it off or he just moved way too much.  I do like this effect!

Day 10 - Animals

It's HOT here!  Grey is taking advantage of the shaded porch.  Why is this obviously orange kitty named Grey?!?  Goofy eldest daughter is a "Grey's Anatomy" fan.  All my kitties got old and moved on, Grey is the only feline in the house now.  She is happy with that

This is Buddy...yep a golden named Buddy.  Go figure.  I bet there are thousands similarly named goldens.  He was barking at me...probably telling me to let him inside!  He has been a good, if not huge, inside dog.

Day 9 - Fresh Fruit

Cherries are my favorite summer fruit.  When I was a kid, we had a cherry tree, my Gram Gram had two. Cherries just mean summer is here to me.
 I love a sweet watermelon!  These seedless ones are the best!
My River Fairy thinks so too!

Day 8 - Sunset

Sunset did not co-operate tonight.  This is the sunset I saw...could've cheated I supose, but the best sunset pictures I have are from 2007 in Nevada.
This was taken south of Vegas.  We were headed to Kingman, AZ.

Day 7 - High Angle Photo

My little Bug playing in the front room.  I am up in the loft taking the picture.  She is probably happy being in there, as it is not usually allowed.  I try to keep one room clean for company...rarely works...but it's not too cluttered at the moment,

Day 6 - Books

These are my favorite inspirational books.  Esther is my all-time favorite bible study! All these books cause me to look deep into myself, and immediately turn that focus on God.
I have read all these multiple times.  If I have a weekend, or a few days and I need to escape, Twilight is my first choice.  The Hunger Games is an amazing series, I hope they do a good job with the movie. My latest reads are Demon Trapper's Daughter, which I learned at the end of the book, is a series....really looking forward to the next one.  I just finished Water for Elephants a couple of days ago, so good!  I am now ready for the movie.  The Secret Garden is my all-time favorite fiction book!  I discovered it while in Germany around the age of 12.  I love this book and the Hallmark movie as well.

These are my favorite children's books.  Yep, The Secret Garden made this stack as well.  My mom bought me all the Raggedy Ann books in the 60's.  She wrote the date she bought them on the inside covers, a habit I now carry on. I did not read the Gammage Cup until I had kids, but man-oh-man, what a story!

Day 5 - Breakfast Today

My breakfast today.  Seems light, very light, but if you could've seen what we had for lunch, you'd understand!  Today was homecoming at our church, oh the food!  I made two blueberry cheesecake cakes.  Sorry, no pic, but dang they were good!

Day 4 - Clouds

One month and 8 days after the tornado, the clouds over Hackleburg are happy, puffy...non-threatening!

Day 3 - Hands

This was my first thought when I saw the daily assignment.  "Forever Hands" is what I call this pic.  Seems a bit contrived, because, well, it was.  I took a pic of our hands in March at a Braves - Phillies game, much better...he didn't even notice.  :)

This was my next thought...my granddaughter's hands in mine.  The baby really didn't want any part of this, so this really was a lucky shot!  I like this one a great deal!

Day 2 - Favorite Shoes

Barefeet!  Sans Shoes!  My favorite!  I will wear shoes, when necessary, or when I must be appropriate.  But most days, it's bare tootsies for me!
These are my favorite go to shoes.  Hubby bought them for me on the Blue Ridge Parkway.  They look great will ALL my jeans!

NOW, if I had any sence of balance, was several years younger, and had slightly bigger feet...these would be THE ONES!  Aren't they just the coolest things ever?!?!  They belong to my youngest daughter, the true shoe hog in the fam...most of her shoes have heels this tall....aahhh, to be young....and balanced!  LOL

Day 1 - 30 day June Photo Challenge - Self-Portrait

I truly hate pictures of myself, but I thought the photo challenge at A Feathered Nest sounded like fun.  I am looking forward to the rest of the list so much more than Day 1.
