Photo blogging #challenge November 2017 #BLUE

I cannot believe that November is over already!!!

The theme for November photo blog and challenge hosted by http://hoohaa.com was BLUE. I love the color blue and was excited to see what I would take pictures of to fit in with the theme.

I realized this month, a lot of my blue pictures were of the sky. We took a trip to Ireland this month and arrived about 8:00 in the morning. I love the morning sky. Looking at it is so relaxing. At the same time, I was beginning to hyperventilate because I was in Ireland!!!!!! Months of waiting were leading up to this trip.

We went to the Guinness storehouse and brewery for a tour. This is a picture of a light installation representing the Nitrogen air bubbles in a glass of Guinness. I told the Hubs that I want him to make me some lights like this for the house. He responded, “Take a picture and we will see.”

I would have thought that all the street signs in Ireland would have been green. I thought that was the national color 🙂 I guess they put some blue in there for variety. There was so much to do in Ireland, we need another trip to do it all. So many museums, so little time.

Of course, going to the Cliff of Moher was at the VERY top of my list of things to do in Ireland. It is a breathtaking as I imagined. I like visiting places like this because it impresses upon me the power found in nature. Beautiful. With the mist and fog, there was a slightly ominous quality as well.

Because I did not spend the entire month in Ireland, for my last picture, I chose a selfie I took at a wedding. I like how the blue lights reflected off of the building wall. I was part of the sparkler send off to the bride and groom. It was a beautiful end to a wonderful wedding. I wish the bride and groom much love and happiness ❤

These were just a few of the pictures that I chose for November.

Photo Blogging #Challenge September 2016 theme: Your #town #photoblog #fun 

September’s theme for the photo blogging challenge hosted by http://hoohaablog.com was Your Town. Currently, I live in Greenwood SC.

As usual, the hardest part about this was deciding which pictures to use. I really like my community and take pictures when I am out and about all the time. That means that I have a lot to choose from and it’s hard at the same time. Without further ado, my photo picks.

My local favorite restaurant Montagues has a ladies night special each week. This ladies night entrée is half off the regular price. I use this as an opportunity to try new things.  The Mediterranean seasoned chicken was paired with lentils, olives, and feta cheese. It was a very delicious combination. I raved about it to the chef and I like to think that was the reason it was on the menu two weeks in a row.

Barbecue pork butts hot off of the grill. My husband was cooking for the local volunteer fire department – Station40 – because they were having their annual fundraiser where they sell barbecue plates. It was a weekend where both of us got very little sleep because we were at the fire station: cooking, cleaning, and selling lots and lots of food. I am glad to report that the fundraiser was able to make some decent money to help buy needed items for the fire station.

I submitted this photo into a local art show competition. It was chosen to be part of the exhibit in October! My first time in a show!!

There are a lot of historical buildings and in around the town where I live. One of the closest is Cokesbury College. Back in its heyday, this was a women’s college. It is no longer used as a college but the building is used for wedding receptions and other types of similar events.

Our local chapter of the United Way had a “Day of Action” which some might know as “Day of Service”. On this day, employees from local area businesses helped to complete projects for nonprofit organizations within the Greenwood community. Our group helped clean the sensory park trail at the Burton Center. The Burton Center is a place where individuals with various degrees of special needs and disabilities are able to go and receive therapy or possible rehabilitation to allow them to be somewhat self-sufficient. Giving back to the community is one of the best impacts you can make.
As you can see, I had a great month and cannot wait to see what October will bring 🙂
