It’s the one difference between Texas and Ireland that’s hard to get used to even after 9 years… it is so light! Right now it’s 10:30 and guess what? Yeah it’s light as can be outside! It makes the day seem so very long and the night super short! It will start to get light about 4 am… I'm only just drifting off about then sometimes! Other than that I love EVERYTHING about it here!
If you go out about 2 am and look to the north you can still see a hint of light!
I'm glad the longest day is over and now the days will finally start to shorten. Winter is great! It’s dark about 4:30 or 5 pm and dark till about 9 or 10 am. I have always been a night person and that suites me so much better!
Weird thing to complain about but it’s not so much complaining as just hard to get used to!
I suppose it’s great for photos though! And I'm sure in the winter I’ll be complaining about the short day with no light to take a good shot! Lol!
No I won’t! I just like winter more than summer!
It’s even got my typing mojo out of sink as I think I have loads of time to type and get something up and I look and nooooooooo I don’t have enough time to relax and flow! That’s my excuse anyway! And I'm sticking to it!
I think there was something else I was going to say today but I forgot! And I had better get this blog and photo up!
I know I am soooooooooooo far behind on commenting again! I'm sure you’re tired of hearing that!
I will catch up soon though!
Headache gone! woo hoo! But I am sooooooo lazy on this blog and commenting! Sorry Terri for getting your hopes up and then only giving you a hall and a headache! lol I’ll make it up soon I promise! My writing skills are not at their best at the moment! It seems like I just can’t get both blog and photo together as much as I would like! But stick with me I will come through! Or I’ll do my best to try anyway!
I was in a blah mood today for some reason… you know how it is sometimes things get on top of you. Well today was an un-Qi day! You know me and my “un” words! But this evening when trying to think of a photo for the day my wonderful and lovely hubby came through for me!
Bubbles in the back yard! Now that would have to put a smile on your face wouldn’t it?! Well it did mine! We had a super fun time in the back with Michael manning the bubbles and me dashing here and there trying to take photos of them! Nothing like a bit of fun with the person you love!
I can’t believe it’s almost half way through the 365!
One more thing…
This is a weird one I think… but maybe it shouldn’t be weird! It was just a surprise!
Did you know that Wal-Mart and Costco sell…..
What can you say about that????
I’ll leave you with a funny pic! You gotta love this one!
Hallways and headaches…
I have a headache… Looking at the pc is making it a bit worse so I will have to comment tomorrow…
So this is day 179… our hall!
Ok so it’s just a cute cat photo!
Did I say “just”? Not just any cute cat!
The sky’s the limit!
I was sitting outside today as the sun was shining. Enjoying music and soaking up the sun!
I started to look at the sky and was totally amazed! Wow it moves so fast!
The sky is funny… it’s not even really there… its always changing and always a perfect sky!
I hope you like my first ever attempt at stop motion! I would have got more shots but I didn’t charge my battery before I started! I'm happy with it anyway!
Grass… not the right kind though!
This is me bored and trying to look cool while Michael is mowing the yard!
Right…so I got these insoles for my shoes because my feet are flat, well not really flat because the woman than made the impression of my feet to have them made said that not many people truly have flat feet its more that the feel roll in… and mine do. So I have to get use to these things and let me tell you it’s not that easy! I'm walking different and using muscles that I'm sure have never been used before! I knew I had weird feet because when I was little I had to wear special shoes… they were expensive and so my mom would buy them two sizes too big for me so I could wear them longer but I had to stuff the toes with paper towels and the heels too! They were ugly shoes… black and white and I didn’t like them. I only wore them for a few years I guess because by the time I was in school I had regular shoes.
So what am I getting gat here anyway?
Well this computer is heavy and also on my lap… and knees… which are very sore…
So basically this is a cop out! I will catch up in a day or two and hopefully my feet don’t fall off before then.
I don’t know if you have heard this before but I will leave you with it…. it’s very very funny!
This is a BIG deal!
Ok so another one of my phobias…. Spiders! Not outside though, I don’t mind them there… but I can’t stand them in the house!
If I see them in the house I usually just totally freak out! But! I'm trying to be a better person and not be afraid of silly things and spiders here are not killers! So this is a spider that lives in our laundry room.
I saw him… or maybe it’s a her? a few days ago and was going to freak out… then I got a grip on myself and thought about it…. this tiny thing is not going to hurt me and is more afraid of me then I am of him/her… I hope!
Anyway I did nothing… the next time I was in the laundry room he/she was still there and I had a closer look… a bit freaked but all in all I was ok. So the next day I was in and I didn’t see him/her! I got worried! Where has my spider gone? I didn’t know what to do…
I took a bit of old leaf and stuck it close to the little web he/she had and waited and hoped it would return home…
As you can tell he/she did!
Please don’t look at the dust and dirt and the hair in the corner… just focus on the spider! And I know it’s not the sharpest photo ever but keep in mind I was shaking! And that’s the closest I have ever been to an indoor spider before! Just after I took the pic the spider was gone and I thought it had jumped on me! I shook and shivered and then saw it was back in its home where it had not left!
I have to admit I get slightly freaked out looking at the photo!
I did a bit of surfing today and found a few funny things… I share them with you now! :~P
It's not just me!
Who ever did this was brilliant!
I just had to add this one in!
Don’t know what to say about this really…
Only I think this is such a beautiful cathedral! Also maybe I think it’s a shame how so many religions are… people starving in this world and some religious people driving around in big fancy cars… and the Vatican thinks and seems to be above everyone else by preaching to be this or that and then has ancient relics and artefacts of other religions in its possession… I don’t think that’s right but then I don’t think much of it is right… I also don’t know why people don’t see what I see? Maybe I'm too something? Or maybe they are?
It makes me feel like a bit of a hypocrite to look at this building and think it’s so beautiful but know what is behind it… I feel like somehow I am being just a bit fake…
Just picking on the one religion of Catholicism here… why is this big massive cathedral here with all of its adornments while people just around the corner have no home? Why is the pope so special? Isn’t he just a person like me and you? Why does and should he get such special treatment? If he were really what he says and preaches then shouldn’t he be in rags… or at the very least something a bit more modest than the fancy robes he wears and in a place that’s so elite it has its own everything with so many people around him that appear to be nothing more than servants… do you think God would really want servants? I don’t think so…
Then again maybe it’s just me?
Have a look for yourself and see what you think… there is a film called “Inside The Vatican” it’s an eye opener… I can’t get a link to it for some odd reason… it says one every site it’s not available in my region…. Hummmmmm imagine that!
Also maybe just do a quick search and a little reading… you might find something interesting… either way you lose nothing and can only learn and broaden your mind. That’s not bad is it?
Just for the record I don’t just think it’s one religion doing bad things and I also don’t think all religions are bad either! :~)
I'm not trying to offend anyone here.... This is just how I feel and what I think!
Just question everything! That all!
I am starting to wonder if I am repeating myself here! Did I say the thing I used to have about one shoe?
Well if I did I'm sorry and obviously losing my mind! If I didn’t I will tell you now! Maybe with a bit of luck if I did tell you, you would have forgotten by now and I come out ok either way! :~)
I used to have this thing if I saw one shoe one the side of the road… it would drive me mad! I mean totally crazy! I would think about how that shoe got there???? If it was a child’s shoe I could get over that pretty quick… I could just see some kid in the back seat window rolled down, not too much but just enough to launch a shoe from the car!
Many times I would see a shoe I could not as hard as I might try… imagine hoe it ended up on the side of the road/highway… my mind boggled!
Work shoes… yeah ok! I can get someone changing from their work shoes and leaving them on top of the car… no problem!
But the thing that killed me was the odd fancy shoe! Or maybe one runner? How does that happen!?????? Really! I want to know! Or I did anyway….
Finally I came to the conclusion that a one legged person bought a pair of shoes (which annoyed me for a long time too… why would a person with one leg be forced to buy 2 shoes?) anyway I figured after they bought the pair they would be driving down the road and would, with force, anger and vengeance… throw the shoe they were not going to use out the window! Well that’s what I would do!
Anyway it’s ok I'm not being mean about a person with one leg… I actually knew a person with one leg… I didn’t know him too well but I do remember being at a party one night and he was there and my friend had to show him the bathroom… he was trying to use the kitchen! But that’s another story! :~P
Anyway my shoe panic is pretty much over now! I don’t care when I see a lonely shoe on the side of the road…. But if I see one in the middle of the road… well
What can I say!
And as far as shoes over telephone/electric lines… well now that’s just total insanity isn’t it?!
What do YOU make of it?
I have decided to do a Project 365! Here is just a bit of info behind every pic.
I have an Etsy shop now! Check it out here!!!!
