This week I came up with a last minute theme (I seriously decided as I was taking the first picture). The theme is:
it’s pretty straight forward. You would think that would be quite easy except for one little thing–
It’s been really cold.
Okay I probably have all my readers from up North shaking their heads right now. Fair enough, it’s been really Georgia cold. But the thing about Georgia cold is that it’s not pretty in an “I want to go outside and play in the snow” kind of way. Things are just brown and dead and cold. I also haven’t been feeling super motivated to leave my house this week, so that left me with the challenge of finding things to photograph in my cold, dead yard.
Let’s see how I did.
1-18-14: For Saturday and Sunday I did actually leave my house. My husband and I took our dog Jerry on a walk at the park. It was pretty dang cold in the shade, but when these lovely rays of sun showed up it was perfect out! The rare thing about this photo is that my hubby is actually in the picture. He hates cameras, so this may be one of only a few photos of him this year.
1-19-14: After my dad brought home my childhood kite during Christmas, the hubby and I decided to take it out for a test spin (I never got the chance to use it as a kid). Well, during this endeavor we learned that Jerry loves kite chasing. I’m just lucky those big sharp doberman teeth didn’t snag my kite!
1-20-14: Did I mention that it’s cold out! Well, I had this brilliant idea that I was going to have a bonfire with the Christmas tree that is still sitting patiently in the backyard. Turns out I kind of suck at starting fires. This is the best flame I got.
1-21-14: I took advantage of this blue sky day to take a silhouette picture of the tree in our front yard. I love the crisp lines in this photo.
1-22-14: Here’s Jerry basking in the evening sun. Don’t let the warm colors of this photo fool you though. I still had two sweatshirts on.
1-23-14: The Christmas tree is still in the backyard. I should really do something about that.
1-25-14: It’s just another beautiful, blue sky, sunny day. And freezing. I had to continuously pause from my paperwork at work this morning in order to breathe on my hands to warm them back up. And that was inside the store!
And that’s it for this week.
Since I’ve used this word entirely too much in this post, I’ve come up with a theme for next week and it is: Cold.
I’m still on the hunt for new themes, so if you have any ideas please leave them in the comments.
See ya next time!
