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. Didn’t you go on a diet a few months ago? How’s that working?

      LOL seems like I’ve been “dieting” my whole life since I have always been on the heavy side. I am holding steady at a loss of 42 pounds so far. Had a slow month with our recent vacation to Reno but am ready to get back to being more careful now. Thanks for asking! It keeps me accountable. 🙂

    Love your idea of documenting life through photojournaling. I love the expression on your dad’s face in the first picture. It’s such a perfect moment. Looking forward to seeing more. Following along!


  4. Great photos! Especially love the ones of the flowers

    I remember reading Tuesdays with Morrie and being kind of bored with it. I realize that I’m the only person in the whole world who felt this way, but there you have it. Glad you enjoyed it, though.

      LOL Ally, probably not the ONLY person in the world and, yes, I was kind of expecting a little more “insight” actually, especially from the way they have the subtitle, “Life’s greatest lesson.” I thought perhaps I was missing something but if you found it boring, maybe not!

  6. I love all of the photos, but I especially love the one with you and your dad. It is absolutely precious. The moon with the clouds is beautiful, too–and it does look like angel’s wings. I’ve been wanting to read We Were the Lucky Ones, but have not done so–going to buy it today. Thanks for the inspiration (as always). Dawn
