88|365 Barefoot Weather (4/2/11)

Keith and Kelsey finalized a place for her to stay during summer school and he installed a ceiling fan in our garage.  I spent a good portion of the day doing all the necessary household chores as well as cleaning out the flower beds.

Today was perfect weather, in the mid 80’s, and I enjoyed walking around our yard barefoot.  It just felt so good.

38|365 These Boots Are Made For Sloshin’ (2/11/11)

We’ve had quite a bit of rain and snow this past year so recently I bought some rain boots.  I don’t think I’ve had anything like them before.  Although, in first grade I had a red & white polka dot rain coat with golashes.  You know, the kind where you put your foot & shoe into it and buckle it on the side?  I think mine were clear.

I never really liked golashes and with all the sloshing and stomping in puddles that I liked to do, they never kept my shoes or feet dry.  Then it was always a challenge to get my shoes out of the golashes.  Anyway, I’m looking forward to my next opportunity to wear these boots and maybe I’ll do better at keeping my feet dry but I don’t know ’cause I still like to slosh in the puddles.

That timer feature on the camera is really pretty cool.  There’s another option, a wireless remote, that I’m going to investigate because I can think of lots of uses for that.

37|365 It’s all in the way you look at it (2/10/11)

We ordered a camera for Keith last week and it finally arrived today.  Our plan is to enroll in a photography class and learn about this together.  Maybe we’ll go galavanting around Oklahoma’s scenic areas such as those listed in Oklahoma Today’s Top 50 Landscape Photography Locations.

Keith got a Fujifilm FinePix HS10.  We have cameras similar enough to learn photography basics yet different enough to experiment with different functions.

35|365 Soft and Velvety (2/8/11)

Those ears!  They have over thirty muscles that allow directional hearing and independent movement plus all those whispy hairs help with balance.  My favorite part is the velvety softness of the fur on the back of those cat ears.
