September 26th, Day 269: Muffin for Your Thoughts?

I’m losing steam. I hate to admit it, but it’s true.

Only 96 days left on the clock, but I am so tired of this project. I’m not feeling motivated, instead I’m feeling annoyed when I get home after a long day at work only to realize I haven’t taken my “photo of the day” yet.

I’m going to push through this feeling, I’m so close now, and I want to be able to successfully finish it.

But.

It’s hard.

September 8th, Day 251: Taste the Rainbow?

I found this cluster dangling from a broken branch on one of my tomato plants.

I love how the tomatoes are in gradual stages of ripening, almost like a rainbow.

I have yet to throw this into the lightbox, these were taken when the light nicely coming through the window above my desk.

It is so satisfying to be able to grow so many tasty things! I had a full day of cooking and baking with things from the garden.

I started with zucchini brownies, and caramel cookies (not from the garden, haha), dried some cherry tomatoes in the dehydrator, baked potatoes and butternut squash for dinner, as well as homemade tortillas (not from the garden either, but still homemade!) to go with the homemade salsa (3 kinds of tomatoes, tomatillos, onions, and peppers all from the garden) and guacamole (not from the garden, though don’t I wish).

Oh! and how could I forget the applesauce, made with apples grown on the farm.

August 16th, Day 228: Scenic places under our noses!

I have a bunch of photos from our camping trip to go through, I’m not sure where to start!

Tonight we went out for dinner with Isaac’s parents, and while we were waiting for our table we stood outside to enjoy the fresh air.

I enjoyed playing around with edits on this one, and this is my favorite result.

August 11th, Day 223: Fun with Pollen

You know how when a dog rolls around in something and he gets covered in whatever dirt/grass/mud/dead animal he was rolling in?

This bee reminded me of that.

He was so focused on getting the pollen from this one particular sunflower I had time to walk to my camera bag 20 feet away, change lenses, and get back without him going anywhere else.

And I’m so glad he didn’t, he looked great covered in bright yellow pollen!

And lucky I took my Zyrtec this morning too! :)

July 24th, Day 205: Playing Catch Up

Whew! Where has the time gone? I was feeling pretty good about blogging every day, and working on my purples for the color group I’m in, but since I started my new job (in combination with the last two weeks at the old job) I’ve been too busy for anything!

My schedule has been something like this:

     Wake up
     Shower
     Drive to work
     Work
     Drive home from work (or to second job)
     Sleep
 

So, bear with me while I do a little catching up on sharing my daily photos with you.

I thought about putting them all in this one post, but I like looking back and remembering what I did each day from each post’s content.

……………………………

My garden has really been taking off lately, with all the warm weather we’ve been having here in Washington.

One of the other community garden folks even referred to my tomatoes plants as “The Beast.”

We’ve been able to harvest many things so far; potatoes, carrots, beets, peas, and beans mostly.

And this is a glimpse of what we have to look forward to:

 

I also found this little green guy on a sunflower, and Toby taking in the sunshine.
