And that is why I have been terribly absent this month. I'm sorry.
I may not have taken a photo a day in October, but I did take plenty of pictures! So, I decided what I would do is choose 31 photos and post one for each day, even if it wasn't taken on that day. That way, I'm not behind of my project and you still get a very good glimpse of my month.
Here we go:
Day 55: I made cheesy potato soup! Actually, it was the first time I've ever made soup! And I must say, it was pretty dang good! :)
Day 56: The story behind this photo... This road is the back way to school. I don't drive the back way very often, but every time I do I always think to myself "I should really take a picture of the way the trees go over the road like that." Well, I finally did it! I convinced my mom to go with me; we had to park a ways down the road and walk. She was my lookout, making sure that no cars came to run me over. We were a bit too late and there wasn't very much light left, but I'm proud of myself for finally doing it!
Day 57: It's starting to look like fall in our driveway! Unfortunately, it's not because it's actually like fall (it's still in the 90s most days) but because the leaves are getting all dried up because of the drought. I can pretend, though. Side note - I've lived in Oklahoma for just over a year and I'm already saying what I swore I never would... I miss fall and *gasp* even winter! I am so ready to wear jeans and a sweatshirt and curl up with a mug of hot chocolate and some knitting...
Day 58: You can tell I've been sick because there are cough drop wrappers all over this place! I'm feeling much better now, though!
Day 59: I thought I was going to be really cool and learn how to change my own oil instead of having to take it somewhere every time. Yeah, I failed. My dad tried to help me, but we couldn't get the stupid thing unscrewed for anything! I felt totally lame taking it to the place... :(
Day 60: Yeah, nothing exciting today, so here's a photo of my laundry...
There's this cool grass that has these fluffy things in it. It's weird, but also cool. It looks so soft!
Day 62: I hate grasshoppers. I think they're gross. But this one was just sitting there waiting for me to take it's picture. I didn't have any choice.
Today is a couch + book kind of day.
Edited to add:
Here's the truth: I never didn't actually sit on that couch or read that book. I was going to, really, I promise. But then I had to take the photo first and then I came to the computer edited it, posted it, got really distracted online, and then it was time to go to my meeting and I didn't get a chance. Sad day, I really wanted to read that book! Maybe tonight. But honestly, probably not.
Stained glass at church after everyone left and we turned off the lights. The light shining through was too much, I couldn't resist!
I swear the dishes were multiplying - just when I thought I was done, I'd turn around and find another pile that I'd missed!
I installed more ram on my computer all by myself! It was incredibly easy, really!
My mom needed 3D shapes for school, so I made some for her. And they were so fun and colorful!
Time for a new sketchbook since the old one is falling apart!
