43. That Reminds Me

Last night I was fortunate enough to be able to watch a beautiful sunset over the water. The reflection of the setting sun reminded me first of an abstract painting I saw once in a gallery. Then as the sky changed so did the water. It reminded me then of a river of molten lava, then of an artists palette of paints. In the end it mostly reminded me how lucky I am to live in a place that I can watch beautiful sunsets over the ocean.

9. Foggy

Going to the dentist for anything other than a regular cleaning can be a stressful thing for me. So my visit to the dentist this morning to have a wisdom tooth pulled was not something I was looking forward to. I managed to help lower the stress level by thinking of ways to turn the whole thing into a photo post!  Yes, I am not normal… I accept that. I’m using the theme “foggy.” Because of the skills of my wonderful dentist the whole experience is already just a foggy memory.

Afraid?! Yes!

Afraid?! Yes!

13. Hearts

While visiting Sedona recently I decided to make a little photo blog game out of looking for hearts.  I managed to find several in just one day!

All proof that photo blogging may become addicting. It may cause you to take photos of things that make no sense to anyone other than another photo blogger!

A3 I Saw It On Vacation

My husband surprised me for my last birthday by taking me for a short mini vacation to Clearwater Beach. At first I hesitated to include a photo taken so close to home under a vacation theme. But then I thought about how many people spend time planning a vacation to a place right in my own back yard.

I was in my mid 30’s before I saw the ocean for the first time…. maybe that is why I love being near the water so much. I don’t think I will ever tire of it’s beauty.

31. Out Of Control

At a 4th of July cookout we tried to work together to paint the numbers of the current year with the light of our sparklers. Our “Out of Control” laughter was probably heard by neighbors several houses away.

44. That’s Dangerous

I spotted this sign at a rest area near Phoenix, Arizona. Anyone who knows me will tell you the only thing I hate more than a snake is a scorpion. When I lived in Panama I had a couple near misses with them. It still gives me shivers to even think about it! ACK! I read once that a black florescent light would make a scorpion glow in the dark. I was creeped out enough a couple times that I actually bought a battery powered, hand held black light. A few times I lurked around the house with my light checking doors, windows and floors to see if I could spot any of the little devils glowing but never did. The heart attach I would have had if I did would have REALLY been dangerous!
