Let me explain this. No I did not put my kid in the dryer. You see, I was in the kitchen washing out her cup. She wanted some milk, also known as gook. I hear her in the back room making ruckus and whatnot and I keep saying, E, you need to come in here. E could you please come here? Oh E....(in a singsongy voice mind you) come here, I have your gook....NOTHING. SO I go in, she has completely unloaded the dryer. No small feat. All over the floor. And happily climb in there and was clanging around with a ceramic teapot lid.
So I of course HAD to get pictures. I wonder what it is like inside a dryer. Probably nice and round, slightly dark, and loud I bet with a ceramic teapot lid. She was having a blast in there, and I did not at all look forward to making her get out, when she just...poof! Decided she was done. What a relief to me that was! But wouldn't it be wonderful if as adults, we thought it was ok to crawl into slightly dark small spaces and just be for a little while? Take a few minutes and roll around and maybe make a little noise?
I also took this picture which I love and love that my camera shoots in RAW format if I want. This picture is straight from the camera. The second is that picture adjusted. I like the first because it looks so natural. But I like this second one for it's color and clarity.The third, well I just was having so much fun I couldn't stop!
Now that I have a camera again I need to get this blog up and going. Right now there is no color, it is bland etc. I need a banner but am not sure how to go about doing it because I cannot really decide what I want my site to show visually. I do not lack for words, it is finding the visual to express those words. So anyway that's all for now. Any ideas, comments, or thoughts I appreciate comments from bloggers and non-bloggers alike. Have a great weekend!

But, I got a job in mid-August at the Community College Daycare! So I can bring my youngest daughter with me, and my older one can come when she has school. I work a little in the morning, take a 2 hour break during which time I can work on some of my schoolwork for my 16 credit hours, and then work 1-5. It is sooo much fun. Everyday is different and delightful. I get to play with play-dog, blocks, paint, crafts, and gak every single day. Since I started there I have been making a list of all the fun things I could do with my girls and I am excited to get started. With my new job I will be able to buy myself a new camera!! Yahoo.
I was in Barnes and Noble yesterday and came across the new Artful Blogging magazine. I cannot wait to buy this!!! I wish I could buy it now. It is by far the most inspirational magazine I have ever come across. It's pages are enchanting and addictive. The cover is so smooth and the pages thick. I just love this magazine. I am constantly reading and rereading it. Then that leads me to more and more blogs and I start thinking in a blog. Now from here, I haven't had the time to actually do the blogging part of my thinking, but I am going to try really hard to do it.
I am beginning to make a mind movie which I am excited about. I cannot wait to use it to aid in my allowing and attracting things and greatness in to my life. If you do not know what they are truly exciting. There are a bunch on Youtube right now. I have been gathering pictures and quotes and thinking about music. Hopefully I will get that up and running soon, but in the mean time here is one of the really good ones on Youtube right now!!

I was trying out my new camera today, while I was FREEZING I might add, and playing around with my super macro setting. I haven't got much chance to really play with my camera since I got it, so I am AMPED that it is getting warm out. I love the close up, because it looks like the ball has a little lip that pokes out. It reminds me of my mom always telling me not to pout, cause a birdie might come along and poop on my lip!!
Anyway I am trying to change the way I photograph, because for a long time I have just been photographing for the sake of having pictures. I was centering people right in the middle, ignoring the fact pictures are more interesting when the person is of to the side or shot at a different angle. I am challenging myself to take more visually interesting pictures. So, be prepared. I hope you will be delighted and amazed as I do this:)
I am trying to reconnect with myself, my sense of play, my sense of adventure...well, it seems like I am just trying to reconnect with my senses. I hope I will meet lots of friends on my journey.
