Photo blogging #challenge August 2017 #summerFUN #photoblog

The theme for August photo blog and challenge hosted by http://hoohaa.com was Summer Fun. I have had a rough couple of months with the deterioration of my grandmother’s health and her ultimate demise in July. So, for August’s picture selections, the pictures are not as artistic as I have tried in the past. It was more about celebrating life while dealing with our family’s loss.

Hubs decided that we needed to go on a day road trip on Saturday to take our mind off things. We went down to Duluth GA and window shopped with no particular goal in mind. We ate lunch at a Korean/Chinese restaurant. I had Korean pork BBQ. My fave.

Since I was in the path of totality, I saw the eclipse. My picture during total eclipse was not that great because I needed a better camera lens. In any case, it was breathtaking to witness it in person. It was like nothing I have ever experienced. Well worth all the hype and more.

My baby Blaze got in a fight 😦 and needed to go to the vet for his injury. Thankfully, it was not that serious. He got an antibiotic shot and did not need any other meds. I should have named him Houdini because on the trip to the vet, he got out of his carrier. I do not know how since the door was closed.

This is my Young Living Orb diffuser in action. On my way to work, I started diffusing lemon and peppermint essential oil because it helps calm and balance my emotions. Grief can be something serious. I am glad that I have a natural options to help me to get a handle on releasing negative emotions without it consuming me.

One Friday evening, I went to Montague’s (local restaurant) to hear Rachel Davis sing and Kenny Price play the guitar. This duo is also part of a band called The Bonnie Situation. If you love 90s music and you live near Upstate SC, it will be worth your while to go hear them play. I particularly love to hear Rachel perform covers “You Oughta Know” (Alanis Morrisette) and “Free Your Mind” (En Vogue). She has a set of lungs on her to hit the notes like a pro. And Kenny did a good job too.

These were just a few of the pictures that show SUMMER FUN for me.

Photo blogging #challenge April 2017 #color #photoblog #fun

The theme for April’s photo blogging challenge hosted by http://hoohaa.com/ was COLOR. It has been a LONNNG while since I participated in the photo challenge. I wanted to get back into doing this because it is my one time a month to share a visual insight in my world.

Without further ado, here are my pictures on the theme.

We went to the North Georgia mountains fir our anniversary. We stayed in a cabin at the Sylvan Valley Lodge. Outside the back was dense forest. All the shades of green looked so peaceful.

I went to a painting class and painted this picture. The local chamber of commerce hosted the event to promote the upcoming Festival of Flowers in June. I think my picture is so colorful and pretty. I was surprised that it turned out as well as it did.

I am a Young Living independent distributor. I have bottles of essential oils everywhere. I took this picture because I was staging a picture for Instagram. I love the different colors of the bottle labels.  Of the ones pictured, I think Thieves is my most used lately to boost my immune system because there are too many sick people at work.

I was a judge for a local chef competition. Of course, I was judging the Dessert entries because I love sweets. This lovely, colorful dessert is a lemon basil cake with strawberry cream topped with candied pecans and lemon whipped cream. I love all that is going on with this dish!!!! It was my fave.

I ordered sweet potato tempura sushi the other day. I like how the orange of the sweet potato pops in this. It was tasty too.

These were just a few of the pictures that show the colorful areas of my life.
