Sometimes….

…. you just have to say yes.

Kids will often ask us if they can do something that they know we will or should say no to.

So every once in a while you gotta surprise them with a yes.

 

That’s what I did today I said yes to Arai getting wet with the hose with just 1 condition, that he did not wet me.

The Works

As you know, yesterday was July 4th, Independence Day here in the USA.  Most people go to or host a Barbecue, go to a parade or both.  I went to a barbecue and after all the good food had a chance to settle (you always over eat at BBQ’s) it was fireworks time.

Here are a few of my attempts to capture the awesome fireworks display.  Some of them I held the shutter open to long, others not long enough, and some were just right.

Here are some of the better ones.

Fruits of My Labor

On Friday I was able to harvest (I like saying harvest) my first string beans. Yesterday I used them for dinner.

In a pan of butter, I sauteed some onions, garlic and beef bouillon cubes then added a touch of water and my fresh string beans. The rest of the meal consisted of shrimp with alfredo sauce over fettuccine.

Harvest is a joyful time of gathering the produce of the land.

Can We Get 100?

Arai watches videos on YouTube that kids made and he wanted to make one. So being the Mom-mom that I am, I helped him with the video.  I got the cellphone and started recording. I apologize for the sound quality next time I will use the camera.

Please click Walking the Planks (it will take you to YouTube) and like his video.  If you like Ara’s video leave words of encouragement so he will continue wanting to make videos.

All comments will need to be approved by me before they are posted to YouTube.  Can’t let the mean folks leave their rudeness on his video.

Thank you in advance for your support of Arai’s Video and visiting my page!

Last Blooms-1

It is beginning to get a bit chilly here in New Jersey and I still have a few (18) plants that need to be planted.

Sunday morning, my only full day off, I decided that this is the day. I began planting and was only able to plant 5 of them in this chilly weather.

Instead i decided to take pictures of the remaining blooms.

This one is my favorite…a fallen Dahlia on the 2nd deck I made. (This is a 10×10 deck bigger than the first.)

More pictures to come soon..

Thanks for visiting!

PS…I broke down and paid someone to finish planting the remaining flowers.

Flower of the Day

“There are two great days in a person’s life – the day we are born and the day we discover why.”

~ William Barclay

 

I believe one of the reasons why I was born was to be a mother and a photographer.  I think there is more to the photography part that I am yet to discover.

Have you discovered why you were born? If not too personal, please share.
