A week of no photos

May 12th - 17th

There was a full moon this week. This photo is from the on in January.

I didn't take any photos this week. I'm not sure how this happened. Oh wait, I know how. Work, hormones, family members with health much going on. 

I know, I know, if I make the time to find and capture the beauty that is this crazy, whacked out world with my cameras I will feel so much better. Even if it's only for a few minutes. 

I'm just so damn tired.

I'll make up for my lack of picture taking on Monday. I'm the photographer for our Company Golf Tournament. That should equate to hundreds of photos. Yep, I'm a bit nervous. And exhausted just thinking about how long that day is going to be. So I'll just stop thinking about it for now.

God I love my 50 mm lens.

Amazing brunch created by my Duchess with a little help for her brother 

Have I said how much I love my 50 mm lens?

And Dinner made by Hubs - because Mother's Day is all about the food, right? 
And a 90 minute massage in the middle of the day. YES!!

May 7th -

This here is my weakness. Sourdough bread. Mainly, croutons. Now, why did I make these if I know this? Well, I was making a caesar salad as part of our dinner. We must have croutons and fresh made ones are the best as the packaged ones are unacceptable. Well, most packaged ones. Semifreddis are the bomb and Trader Joe's has some that will do in a pinch. The problem is, I can't stop myself from chowing down on them, especially when I am hungry. No control. I can control myself around chocolate better than I can croutons. Don't get me started on grilled cheese sandwiches. Oye!

Who am I kidding? When I am hungry, having waited a little too long to eat, I just want to eat everything. Do I pick vegetables? Sometimes. Usually its the stuff I really know I need to have in moderation and definitely not when I'm starving.

Now to go cut up some vegetables for the day. Everything is going to be....

Walking in the evening

May 6th -

When Hubs and I do get out for our evening walk, we talk, vent and check out our neighbors yards. We are both looking for ideas of what we can do with ours and that is usually as far as we get on that topic. I'm always looking for a photo op and lately it's flowers. We have lots of houses with roses, which are all starting to look a bit done lately so thankfully there are so many other flowers out there. These are from the bird watchers house down the street. His yard is full of bird attracting plants. Last night we stood there for a while watching humming birds. We managed to get a lap and a half in before we ran into another neighbor and got caught up on what all our adult children are up to these days. We also talked about how we are all ready for retirement. In about ten years.

May 5th - Happy Cinco de Mayo!

Worked a solid day, with no break for lunch then came home, made tacos with Hubs and actually had a sit-down-at-the-table-dinner with the our boy and his girlfriend. After everything was cleaned up and put away, Hubs and I took the dog for a walk. Now this is something we need to do every night yet for some reason we haven't been. It always makes us feel better and most of the time I find something to shoot. Like this happy sunflower that begged me to come capture it.  I feel like I've had a productive day when I move my butt before I crash and burn for the evening. Cheers to the rest of the week.
