Photo blogging #challenge October 2017 #mychoice #photoblog

The theme for October photo blog and challenge hosted by http://hoohaa.com was Photographer’s Choice. I did not take any artistic shots this month. My pictures were more about the fun, interesting things I was doing. I think I will find my inner artist in November.

We were hanging out with friends and decided to play dominoes. I ended up winning this round.

I helped with a fundraiser for the Soup Kitchen called “Empty Bowls”. I made two bowls: one to donate and one for myself. Making the bowl was easier than you think. The professional potter worked the clay in advance. All I had to do was mold it in a bowl shape and paint it. This is the bowl I kept. I liked the way it looked after firing in the kiln.

I told hubs that I wanted to melt glass. He made this kiln at our house and then we tried to get it hot enough to actually melt glass. That was easier said than done. The temperature is half of what we needed it to be to do what we wanted. Yes. That says 1,110 degrees F!!!!

October means Beer tastings! The beer tasting was held at Montagues. I don’t go for the beer. I go for the food 🙂 The lovely item is a collard green wonton with red eye gravy reduction. It was so delicious!!! Just looking at the picture makes me want a plate of these right now.

All my posts could be food related this month. LOL This is from Bulla in Atlanta. I loved their bar setup. I wish I had taken a better picture to really showcase all the different ingredients for their cocktails. I ordered Sangria Blanca and it had blueberries and strawberries. Yum!!!

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

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.

Photo #1


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 🙂
