Project 365 – Week 2
Phew, I made it through the 2nd week and my first entire full week. Get this, I even had photos to spare on a couple of days! I know that won’t last, but I’ll take it where I can get it, especially considering this was the coldest week we’ve had here in Rhode Island and outside time was at a minimum.
My first of many days not feeling creative. I did what I normally do on those occasions I’m in a creative rut – got out the macro lens and played with my food!
A snowy day and this one didn’t disappoint. Not much in the way of accumulation, but it was so pretty coming down. I headed out to Boyd’s Mill in Middletown hoping for a good photo of the windmill in the snow. I did get one of those, but the red berry tree (ash tree I think??) spoke to me more. I love the berries against the white snow falling.
I normally pass by my youngest daughter’s room as quickly as possible and close the door just as quickly. To say she is a pack rat, messy and um, let’s be honest, lazy when it comes to picking up is an understatement. I decided to push my urge to close the door aside and used her many Lego Friends as my subjects. They don’t give me grief when I need a shot!
Today was -23 with windchill when we woke up. MINUS TWENTY-THREE!!! Do you even know what that feels like??! I do now and have no desire to endure it again, although I know this isn’t the end. With the cold we did get this phenomenal effect on the ocean/bay waters all morning. The condensation just settled in on top of the water and it was so beautiful and amazing. This was also my first iPhone photo for my daily photo. I was too cold to run back in the house to grab the big camera!
More snow! You know in about 8 weeks there will be NO exclamation marks after that sentence. It was barely an inch, but we (aka my husband) was determined to put our giant hill to good use and do some sledding. I have to admit we still flew down the hill and had such a great time.
The snow on the rocks inspired me today. They looked like little mountains amidst the ocean waves. Again, fingers nearly frozen to get this shot.
A little play time in the middle of Michael’s in the attempt to look for birthday decorations. This one rarely let’s me take her photo, so when she suggests it I always jump at the chance! This “baby camera” is now on her wish list.
