Chasing the Moon

Been busy..

working, taking care of home, farm and family.  Spending time with my friends..

Went into work last night because one of the cows was kicking so bad I could not milk her.. I have been treating her for mastitis with shots of Penicillin.. and My co-worker was going to show me how to tie up her leg and wouldn’t ya know.. she stood like a good little cow for him.. I let HIM give her her shot of Pen.. LOL  Let’s hope she behaves this morning..

As I was leaving I captured a few shots of the rising moon.. and chased it and captured a few more..

The moon was HUGE.. this Pic is nice.. but somehow.. did not quite capture it.. but I’m pleased with the result none the less.. (Kodak Easyshare)

This pic was taken from the road by the farm’s hay field.. again.. nice enough picture.. failed to capture what I saw.. but pleasing anyhow.. (kodak Easyshare)


…so I went chasing the moon for the shot I wanted.. and this was much closer to what I wanted.. funny tho.. took this one with my Ipod.. I love that little thing..

As mentioned.. The first Two pics I took with my Kodak Easyshare.. I played with the limited settings the other day and changed it from 12 mp to 14.. and don’t really see much difference.. but hope it will improve some of the shots I take in the future..

The last pic I took with my trusty little ipod.. I adore that thing.. The quality leaves a little to be desired when I upload to the blog.. but really.. not much..

I was talking to the guy.. lol.. I have a phone guy.. about upgrading my iphone 3 to the iphone 4s as soon as the price comes down a bit more and he assures me the camera will out shine not only my iphone 3.. but my ipod.. I can’t wait.. lol

I have finally made enough money to get my car fixed!  Working on making some extra to get the new part for my spinning wheel.. and then God Willing and the creek don’t rise.. it will be time to start saving for a camera.. In the mean time I am trying to be content with the tools I have… trying to improve my skills to be the best I can be with what I have..

so… off to work for me soon.. more painting to get done today.. taking my son and his friend with me and can get done in 2 hours what would take me 4 or 5.. then I can come home.. make Chicken Noodle Soup and take a nap.. cuz having Pneumonia was not enough.. oh no.. I had to catch my daughters  and I am MISERABLE!!!

and it has been not so good a year for nice pics of the trees changing.. not to mention I moved.. and kinda miss knowing where to go for the pretty stuff..

This.. was ok.. my son likes it..

I was disappointed with the lighting.. but the end result pleased a few people.. worth posting to see if it is just me.. who does not see what I wanted in this.. if that makes sense..

hmmmm.. I feel like I am rejecting all the photos I took today,  and I suspect it is more about me.. than the photo’s..

old foe…

can’t sleep.
can’t sleep..
can’t sleep..
can’t sleep..
can’t sleep..

I get into bed… close my eyes and drift off for no more than 20 minutes.

the rest of the night is spent on the edge of sleep..

neither awake nor asleep.

almost aware.. but not quite..

…Yeah.. I am in pain.. but I’m used to that..

…. sure I got things on my mind..

this is an old foe.. one I was never very good a fighting..

Often taken..

but seldom looked at in any way other than a way from here.. to there….

from a different perspective than usual..

most things that have been in my life for many years are looking different.. because I see them differently these days..

just by chance..

as are most of the pictures I take..

I found the cord for my camera and these are two of what I found..

this was the night of the Blue Moon 08/31/12


I took several of this sunset September 6th sunset with my ipod and kodak camera.. all of them were amazing,,

but I have to tell you.. I feel a storm coming.. just a feeling.. could be interesting..

Black Sheep

favorite photo

I took this in August of 2011 with my Kodak Easy Share..
It is easily at the top of my Favorites photos list.. and while eagles are “common” around here.. year round.. but not so easy to capture good pics of..

Hopefully this good pic makes up for the last ones..

Epic Battle..

I came across an EPIC battle on my way to work this morning..

Two Eagles and 6 or so crows and a large raven…. fighting it out in the trees and sky…. I am seriously bummed that I did not have a quality camera.. or even one that could capture some of it..

There was Diving, Screaming, Mad flights into the trees!!  and my little ipod could not keep up..

seriously sad…

These are the best of what I captured.. I like the 4th one the best..

days go by…

and I have just been doing what I do..

Taking care of my kids, working, recovering, spending time with good friends….

reward for my patience..

sometimes wishing I had more time in each day…

to pursue the things I love to do..

to be with the people I love.. and love to be with..

but basically..

“Happy” describes how the days go by..
