The Sky

I was out with a friend from work the other day and it was beautiful outside. It was sunny, there was a cool breeze, and we were standing under this beautiful tree. So of course we had to take a picture, to capture and share this gorgeousness that was nature. And while doing so she told me how she kinds has this thing about the sky. She said that in almost all of her pictures, she tries to get the sky in there somewhere because she is so in love with it.

It made me think about how I felt about the sky myself. Now, while I don't have the affinity for capturing it as much, I realized that I do love it too. Every time Nafew and I go out, and when he asks me where I want to go, I tell him I don't care as long as it has a good view. I love watching the horizon, where the sea and the sky meet. I could just sit there staring forever. If I was as good a photographer as most people appear to be these days, or if I had an amazing camera to capture those moments with, I'd probably have a lot of pictures of the sky too.

I came home that day and went through my sorry excuse for an Instagram account and noticed I actually do have my fair share of pictures that captured the sky. So I'm posting the few passable ones with you guys in hopes that there are more people out there that think like my friend and I.

Even when it is frightening, it's still stunning!

One other thing that makes me extremely happy is the moon. regardless of how small it is, or the mood I am in when I see it, it never fails to cheer me up. I have tried to capture the beauty of the moon several times but it always comes out horrible so I've stopped trying. I'd rather enjoy watching it than trying to photograph it and failing.

What's YOUR favorite thing about nature?

Ooh! What Does This Button Do?


I'm that girl. 

I'm curious and I don't always think things through before I act on them. 

There's been a strange disgusting smell emanating from our bathroom sink and I asked the master what to do. 

Google told me to pour bleach down the drain a couple of times and it would probably go away. So I immediately threw aside my laptop and grabbed the bleach. But then I figured I should dilute it a little. Because I'm smart like that (Hysterical laughter in my head, BTW). So I dunk a few capfuls(?) of bleach in some water and threw it down the drain and when back to Breaking Bad. Ouh Yeeeeah!

Fifteen minutes or so later I wanted to see if the smell has gone away and went to check. Did I forget to tell you that I closed the bathroom door after doing the bleach thing and the ventilation in there is next to none? Haha! Silly Me! 

I did. 

So I opened the bathroom door, stuck my head in there, took a deep breath and died. Almost. God knows I'm about as fast as a horny tortoise but with that lungful of bleachy air inhaled, I might just have qualified myself for the Olympics of escaping.
