This photo could more easily fit into the “sparkly” category, but when I saw the ice forming on the plane window in flyover country between Boston and Denver, the photo challenge was the first thing I thought of. So, like any responsible passenger, I pulled my camera bag out from under the seat in front of me, and put on the macro lens, all so I could bring this to you.
This week, Ailsa decided her Travel Theme was “yellow,” because she finally saw sun in her corner of the world. We saw it, as well, as proved by the sun shining off this yellow sign post. Covered in ice. Because it’s freaking cold and icy around here, but some stuff is painted yellow. And sometimes, the sun comes out.
I know it’s still fall, but it sure feels like winter around here. Of course, by “around here,” I mean in my office, where the frigid temperatures have us all wearing coats. I brought in a blanket for my legs, and am now contemplating going to the store to look for fuzzy slippers. Subconsciously, I tell myself I don’t want to go outside into the rainy afternoon. “It’s too cold!” But seriously, it’s probably warmer out there (albeit wetter).
I fear we’re getting to the time of year when photo shoots are going to be sparse. On top of that, my daughter’s visiting for the next month, which is AWESOME! but also changes our schedule around – more shopping, less photography.
To add insult to injury, I’m in the second week of an online master’s program, so it feels like every waking second is consumed by reading boring tomes, trying to figure out what the heck APA formatting is and why I should bother, and writing. Lots of writing.
So consider this my pre-apology if things get sparse around here. I’ll check in as time allows, and I’m confident it will allow more and more as I get my feet under me and figure out the whole self-scheduling thing. Feel free to check in from time to time to hold me accountable for my school deadlines. 🙂
In the meantime, here’s a fuzzy caterpillar to make us all feel better about Thursday.
