334 of 365 Omelet

It's a pretty lame photo tonight lacking inspiration and composition,  but didn't get in the door until 8:30pm - so it was omelets for supper and one photo. Then off to bed.

333 of 365 Guitar Time

Off to work in the dark. Home in the dark. Supper. Clean up. Then he picks up his guitar and I pick up my camera. It's a symbiotic relationship and we love it. What we do in our time off. :)

...besides sleep...

332 of 365 Bible Study

Rushed in the door from work, grabbed a bite to eat and then the gang arrived. One shot. Great evening of feasting in the Word.

327 of 365 Strained Lights

I held up the strainer to the kitchen lights and shot through it in hopes of getting a unique pattern.
Sort of.
This is all the energy I am expending tonight.

326 of 365 Fresh Pattern

I only have energy for one shot with no flash and no set up. I am now going to bed.
This weeks theme - "patterns"

325 of 365 Music

The pattern of musical movement through time.
How 7 white keys and 5 black keys can create something heavenly.
This weeks 365 theme is "patterns"

324 of 365 Delicate Glass Vase

Made of smoke which like water, can be a very beautiful thing.
Yes, I played with smoke today and the shots I got were incredible. It took a committee of David, Ken and myself to pick a fav for the 365. 
So I will place the runners up on the regular blog.

Do feel free to let me know what you think of my smoking.

323 of 365 Tiny Bubbles

Tiny bubbles
In the wine
Make me happy
Make me feel fine

But in this case club soda was the liquid of choice today ~ 2 cans of it.... because those tiny bubbles disappear before you get two flashes in just the right spots.

322 of 365 White Lady

because it is Friday and I have a wonderful white knight who greeted me with this at the door when I got home from work!

321 of 365 Ms. Eva

Ms Eva visited my office today.
She finished off some dated notes for clients files, booked a few appointments and dealt with a few family's calling with questions. She did quite well and I have invited her back to help at any time.
My co-workers found her very congenial too and, well just kept saying "oh she is so adorable" to which Eva smiled on cue.
I think Eva is destined to great things.
 Between our giggles and laughs David and I could not pick a photo of the day so David said post two.
So I am.
She does take her job very seriously. Here she is, just like Grandma, multitasking - writing in patient files, answering the phone and speaking to co-workers at the door, 

I do love my grand daughters. :) Their photos are ALL OVER my office!

320 of 365 Water

Water. I use it to boil my potatoes, make my tea, soak egg off my plates and flush my toilet. I drink clean pure water every day to satisfy the 70% of my body that is water.  I don't really think about it. I just use it ~ whenever I want.
The flash and the shutter catch the droplets from a pouring tap in the kitchen. There are crystals; beautiful precious crystals. And I think about beautiful, precious water.
It covers about 70 percent of the Earth yet only 3 percent of the world's water supply is freshwater, and 77 percent of that is frozen. 
It's just water but isn't is wonderful?

319 of 365 Hamburger?

Met my sweetheart at Earls for lunch today.
We ordered a hamburger to share since we are really trying to keep the waist line in check.

This is what came.
We ate the whole thing!
Glad we ordered salad as a side. :)

318 of 365 Nourished by the Word

....and chocolate chip cookies made by Colleen.
Another evening of good fellowship in His Word.
God is so good to us!

317 of 365 Eva and Tenley

   I DO have more teeth then you!   SEE?
Actually Eva is trying to kiss Tenley. I find it so lovely that babes are so very comfortable with each other. Eva will rarely offer her grandparents a kiss but freely shares them with her friend.
I am not sure Tenley knows a kiss is coming. :)

316 of 365 Winter

It snowed again today.
Shoveled the driveway (with a lot of help from my sweetheart).
Ran two errands - paid house and car insurance - ouch!
Made two slideshows for my last two clients. YEAH!!
Did 6 loads of laundry - yes six. But it is done!

Got to love a day off. :)

315 of 365 Dean

This is Dean and he is a busker outside the downtown mall. He is off work on disability for an illness but he says this is better then hanging around his house all day feeling sorry for himself. He was actually pretty good. If you see him, have a listen and then give him a little encouragement and some spending money.

Did you know that today is 11/11/11?
Remembering our troops serving overseas now.
Thankful for those who have served.
Saddened that so many have lost their lives in war.
Thankful for the incredible freedoms we have in our country.
Reminded of the ultimate freedom found in Christ Jesus.

314 of 365 Home Instead

My first corporate shoot tonight - although I have done non profits.
It was fun and a great peek into a fabulous company. LOTS of employee appreciation.
I was limited in what I can post without permission but this is Greg Charyna , the fearless leader of all the wonderful folk who work for Home Instead here in Saskatoon.

You know I average 42 hits a day to this site. It is really OKAY to leave a comment - even if it is constructive criticism, although I do prefer accolades. :)

So go ahead, be the first. :0)

313 of 365 Coffee Press

Today, like most these days, I left for work in the dark and came home in the dark. And like most evenings I am dog tired .... so outdoor photography is limited and besides yesterday you saw the moon.  I went hunting with the macro lens. Believe it or not I found something in my house I have not yet photographed. At least I am pretty sure I haven't.  Let me know if I am wrong.

312 of 365 Full Moon (almost)

Noticed it on the way home from work tonight.  I haven't grabbed a full moon shot in a while. Besides I was plum out of ideas tonight and I need to get to bed and catch up on sleep.
But the moon always amazes me anew every time I photograph it.

311 of 365 Bible Study Readers

When Leah pulled out her funky readers we all oohed. Very cool Leah!
But when Jean Guy arrived 30 minutes later and pulled out his almost identical readers we all broke into laughter.
I'm not sure if it was the glasses on Jean Guy (a rough, tough tiler) or that he and Leah had almost identical funky glasses. But Jean Guy laughed along with us.

Sometimes on Monday nights I am so very tired after a long day at work that I really do not want to host people at our home. I just want to go to bed. But by 9:30 I am revived and so very thankful for the opportunity to experience Him anew and see God moving in all our lives.
It is also such a blessing to hear someone say... "I needed this tonight"
I did too.

310 of 365 First Snow

Came downstairs in the dark this am  to see a blanket of bright, white snow on the back deck. My first thoughts were how beautifully peaceful it was - so crisp and clean and soft. But those brief momentary pleasures were quickly followed by the thought of four months of shoveling the stuff at 7am every morning and at 5 pm many evenings. Big SIGH....... and minus 40 degree temps.

So I dug out my boots, my down filled winter jacket and my gloves, grabbed the camera and the 50 mm prime and headed out to enjoy the first snowfall.

More shots on the regular blog from the early morning excursion.

306 of 365 Eva's Bath

This girl is always happy and ALWAYS offers me a big smile when the camera comes out.
I know this is the third photo of Eva in a row.... but she is living at our house this week along with her parents,  while their furnace is fixed.... you know, kinda an extension of Hawaii. Except it is a whole lot colder. Especially at Eva's house.

305 of 365 Chocolate Chip Cookies

Eva got her own chocolate chip cookie today.
She ate the whole thing.
She has now eaten every food type except honey.
And maybe sushi....did we give her sushi in Hawaii?
I know she ate everything we ate.....
