Days 55-62

Another week.  Nothing too exciting, as you can see from the photos.  I did get a tripod this week, but didn't get too much time to play with it.  I'm looking forward to using it for some long exposures and self portraits though!  Also, taking a picture every day is becoming less of a burden and more normal, so yay! My project seems to be working!  I'm getting my camera out every day AND becoming much more comfortable with it!

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.
