Ok, I’m getting a little sunset happy, but gosh! The sunsets lately have been incredible! This picture doesn’t even do it justice. This sunset didn’t just live in the sky, it painted everything in its path with a fiery glow. Cars, people, trees and buildings were all lit up with whatever color was in the sky. I tried to capture that, but my phone camera didn’t cooperate. It was one of those times I wish I had a real camera on me, but at least I had something.
My original goal for this blog was to take a picture everyday. A picture of something that found my attention and made me take notice. There were things that grabbed my attention today but not as much of an opportunity to capture it. Usually for me, this type of setback would throw me off and I would feel like I did not achieve my goal. But this time I am going to try something new. I am going to modify my goal to something that gives me satisfaction but doesn’t allow for an all-or-nothing type response. To combat the possibility that I could stray from this blog by simply missing a day of pictures, I am instating a throwback picture option. I will try to correlate the picture to something that I thought about on that day, but I’m sure that there will be a good number of just random shots.
Todays throwback picture is actually 3 pictures from camp this summer. I spent a week up in the woods as a camp counselor at my favorite place in the world, Double H. I was a Bear this summer, which means I got to spend time with the oldest group of girls at camp. They were between 14 and 16 years old. The first two pictures were from a cabin night. This was my favorite cabin night at camp so far. We gave each of the girls the opportunity to design and paint a section of the cabin stairway wall that reflected their own personality while relaying the spirit of camp. It was so cool to watch the girls create their designs and put them on the wall to stay for future campers to see.
The third picture is of the wishboat from that week. It is the top section of the boat (it was 2 tiers – so awesome!) where the “captains” sat. The captains were the eggs from an egg drop game at the beginning of the week. I am amazed that they survived!
So that’s it, the first of the throwbacks.
We have had candy corn in the house for a while now. At first it was just the yellow ended corns but then we added a mix bag of yellow, chocolate, and pumpkin candy. All that is left is the chocolate ones. Kind of reminds me of making chex mix at home, and the wheat chex is always the first to go. My dad and I pick through the bowl to get those out, they are the best. Then all that is left is the rejects. And the bowl sits for a long time. I wonder how long these chocolate candy corns will stick around.
