239/365 Seventeen

Seventeen! We celebrated, one day after the actual date, with a dinner of grilled salmon, rice, stir-fried broccoli, watermelon, and an ice cream cake.
Happy Birthday, Alex!

238/365 More football

Deb and Mike came up for a visit and we were able to go to the  Friday Night Mustang football game. I have never been hotter in my life, plus Alex didn't even get to play! He said it was 115 degrees on the field! Today is Alex's birthday too, but we are going to celebrate tomorrow since he was at school from 6:15 am until 11+ pm!

237/365 Pain

Mustangs win! But, not without pain. Thank goodness this was a muscle pull and not something more serious.

236/365 Bad picture day

The only shot I took this day! Bill and I were attending the football kick-off event at Alex's high school. This is the point when they introduced the players. Alex is in the middle toward the back.

232/365 Clouds

I told Alex to grab the camera and see if he could get a shot of the beautiful clouds with the light on them. I was driving... I love this shot with the clouds and all the lines and signs!

231/365 Manual mode (again)

Back in May, I could not, for the life of me, figure out why the majority of my shots in manual mode were not in focus. Sooo, I put my camera back on auto focus, and I've been in a funk about this since then. Well, today I went in for my regular eye exam and there is definitely something going on with my right eye, so I will see a retina specialist on September 1st. All that to say that I had never thought about the problem being with just one eye. So at lunch today, I changed the camera once again to manual mode and captured this shot of Alex while focusing with my left eye instead of the effected right. I CAN focus! Woo hoo! Too bad I didn't remember to change the white balance setting... :o)

226/365 Powerpoint

At church today we celebrated 30 years of our organist/choirmaster's talent and dedicated service! One of the choir members made a wonderful AND hilarious powerpoint presentation (this shot is of one of the slides). Thanks Carol!

224/365 Knee braces

Football is king here in Texas; we all know that. Another fact that offers proof of its reign is that every offensive lineman on Alex's team (he's #69) is provided with knee braces. For this I am very grateful, since he probably wouldn't wear them if I bought them for him to wear. :o)

223/365 Mystery Photo

Do you ever have photos on your memory card that are a mystery? I seem to remember James asking if he could borrow my camera... I really like this shot and I'm not sure who captured it since the perspective is from the passenger seat in James' car (maybe his girlfriend, Sam?). I applied a Lomo camera effect and love how this draws the eye to the cross.

221/365 Heirloom saved

This is the "before" picture of my heirloom chair that our Blue Lacy, Molly, chewed. She chomped both sides of the chair and matching couch. A friend (thank you Letty!) told me about a furniture refinisher/restorer who might be able work wonders. I called...

Today, Paul delivered the restored and reupholstered chair. I am thrilled! I think they did an amazing job! Can you believe the difference?

I am so thankful that I had them restored (thanks Bill, for urging me to do so)!
The couch will be finished soon and I am having some accent pillows made too. I don't think I have ever been so coordinated (thanks to you Penny).
Call Clark's Furniture Revival, 972-480-0310, if your furniture needs help and your in the DFW area!

213/365 It's Too Darn Hot!

While my phone camera did not focus very well, I think you get the point!
