I am challenging myself to post a photo each day of the year. I am hoping that this challenge will encourage me to keep my eyes open for the wonders around me, document a great year and improve my photography techniques.

Today we started demolishing our bathroom in our 103 year old house. It has been fun as we remodel to find treasures hidden in the walls. This was today's treasure.

Erik had to go into work today. Holden and I decided to go with him. When Holden was small enough to fit on the front seat of Erik's work truck, he used to go to work with Erik. Today he had so much fun running and exploring around the plant. Erik found this photo he had taken on his phone about 6 months ago. We thought it would be fun to recreate the picture today.

Erik had to work today so I went out looking for some interesting shots. It was cold, windy and rainy and didn't find many creatures out braving the weather. I enjoyed talking with family and then a dinner with Erik's mom tonight. Happy Thanksgiving all.

I want to encourage you to go take a walk in a garden. Even though it is nearing winter and the weather is wild, there is still plenty to see in a garden even on a very wet, fall day.

I missed celebrating World Toilet Day over the weekend. Here is an article about how a toilet can help change a girl's life. water.org/2009/09/four-ways-a-toilet-can-change-a-girls-l... After living several years in the developing world, I know first hand the value of a good toilet. I learned why women often wear skirts. And I learned that American toilets weren't always the most sanitary answer.

Blustry day here. Erik and I ventured out. With the wind and the rain there were leaves everywhere. The contrast of this one on a disabbled parking spot caught my eye. Thankful for a quick point and shoot opportunity on a day like today.

Late night at the office. Well really not that late, but with the change in the time, I saw that it was getting dark and I was still busy at work. So, I just looked out the window and took a picture of my view. I am very thankful for my corner office on the third floor with beautiful views all around.

Not the best photo, but some days, my photos commemorate events or tell stories. This morning when I walked out of the house, the swans were flying over. They are back for the winter. I get to be blessed with their fly bys for the rest of the fall and winter.

This is my sweet niece Alyssa, creating a masterpiece for my soon to be niece Sarah (her soon to be sister-in-law) We watched in awe as she knitted away all weekend and all celebrated when she was able to give the masterpiece to Sarah later in the weekend. So much time, patience, talent and love.

11-05-11 A Trip to the Zoo

Via Flickr:
I've always loved going to the zoo. This year, for my Mom's 80th birthday, she wanted us all to go to the little Lufkin Zoo. So my Mom and Dad, Sister and Brother in Law, and my nephew's and their wife and soon to be wife, all went to the zoo. We even rode the little train. I always had fun taking my little, now not so little nephews to the zoo. But, I'll have to say, that going to the zoo even without any small kids will be a treasured memory.

I had the blessing of spending the weekend with my mother for her 80th birthday. It was a sweet celebration as the whole family was able to join together for this occasion. We all packed up and went to the zoo. Last year, I visited at this time and I went to the zoo with just my Mom and Dad. My dad had a really hard time getting around due to his Myasthenia Gravis. It was such a huge blessing to see how well my Dad was getting around this year. So much progress and so many answered prayers. I know that this was a huge gift for my Mom as well.
