In Tune with June - 365 Pictures update

It has been quite a while since I added any of the pictures I've been taking.  Here are a few of my recent ones:

#169 - In honor of Father's Day I picked this one of my dad helping me blow out the candles on the occasion of my first birthday.  Somewhere I have one of him holding me but I couldn't find it now (of course - which leads me to add sorting photographs to my current to-do list!)  My dad passed away about 35 years ago so he didn't get to meet my husband or our kids, a fact that I'm a little sad about.  I know he can see from heaven, but I am pretty sure my kids would have gotten a kick out of him.  Wasn't I a cute kid?  There is a sparkly thing on my left hand which I am pretty sure is a ring given to me by my godparents.  Who in their right mind would let a little kid have a choke magnet like that?  

#158 - Speaking of fathers, my husband has this to say to any guys who want to date his daughters.  Any girl who wants to date our son has me to answer to :)  (No, my husband has not ever actually been in jail - just in case you were wondering).

#160 - We had our full moon.  I took a clearer picture of the moon itself but I kind of like the way the clouds are forming around it in this one.  Kind of looks like angel wings to me.  

#164 - Book #10 on my reading challenge.  This was a good one that I had heard a lot about but never read.  Actually made me cry a little.

#168 - Tuesday's With Morrie was a quick read so here is book #11.  This is based on a true story of a Holocaust surviving family.  It is one of the "mystery books" that Bill brought home from Oregon.

#161 - One foot in front of the other.  I've been walking around our neighborhood to get some exercise in and trying to take note of the world around me as I walk.  I happened to catch this shot by accident but kind of like it.  Reminds me that it takes putting one foot in front of the other to get to my goals.

#166 - This is one of the interesting looking flowers I saw at Safeway.  I'm not sure what it is (my father, the florist, would be disappointed in me I think for not knowing the names of all the flowers), but I really like the way it looks.  

So, there you have some of the pictures I've been taking this month.  I am "cheating" in that sometimes I take more than one picture a day that way when I get to a day I forget, I have one to add.  Sometimes I have to take two or three in one day to catch up.  I set the rules for this game I'm playing so as long as I end up with 365 pictures for this year, I'll consider it good.  What do you think of these?  Have you read Tuesday's With Morrie?  Taken any walks in your neighborhood?  Have rules for people who want to date your children?  Love to hear about it!


  1. I love the picture of that flower! Wow, is that ever gorgeous! Yeah, I'm curious as to what it is too. So pretty.
    That was a neat photo of you walking: one foot in front of the other is a great philosophy.
    I had to giggle at the photo of you with your daddy. How sweet is that?! So cute you were!!! I love those old pictures. My Mom sent me a picture of me in a high chair and it's so darn cute that I have it framed and on my jewelry armoire. Makes me smile every time I walk past it.
    And Dang Girl, you took a great shot of the moon! I have tried so many times to get decent pictures of the moon and never can get any that I'm happy with. That's cool with the clouds around it.

    Have a great week,
    Michele at Angels Bark

    1. Thanks, Michele. If I remember the next time I go to Safeway, if they have the flower, I'll look and see if it has some identification. (That's a lot of if's). I have a bunch of pictures of my childhood and that is one of my to do projects, putting them in order so they can go in a scrapbook. The moon shots are something I do every month and if I just focus on the moon, they all look the same. I was lucky with this one. Thanks for stopping by and taking time to check my pictures!

  2. Good pics. I'm impressed that you managed to take a clear shot of the moon.

    1. Thanks. My little Canon point and shoot does a really good job.


I'd love to hear your thoughts!
