Week 13 of Project 365

After 13 weeks of playing along with the 365 project, 
I still haven't figured out how I want to display my pictures.

This seriously wastes more of my time than it should as I sit and stare and try to decide.

I need a life.

:)

Day 85, Saturday:  I bought this game, Settlers of Catan, a month ago and we've played it pretty much non-stop.  It's become a bit of a family obsession.

Day 86, Sunday:  I had hoped to get into DC for the cherry blossoms.  I had hoped to find a warm sunny day too, but I only got half of my wishes.  My amazing husband (who was home for 10 days!!!) took me into DC and we braved the 30 degree weather and the snow in the hopes of getting a good shot.
My pictures were underexposed and overexposed all over the place, not a single one turned out the way I hoped it would, but I had fun and learned a thing or two while I was at it. 

Day 87, Monday:  Previously mentioned amazing husband had to get on an airplane and go back to the ship on the West Coast.
  Not really in a picture taking mood at all.
This is a sponge that we found last year on the beach in Cuba.

Day 88, Tuesday:  Still not in a picture taking mood, but it was bright and sunny so I got out there anyway and I'm glad I did.  
Love this picture and the others I took as I wandered around my yard.

Day 89, Wednesday: Gray days make for difficult pictures, but I had Quincy stand just inside the doorway and used what little light I had.

Day 90, Thursday:  I love this picture.  Love it, love it, love it.
It was taken with my iphone, just a quick shot, 
but a pretty accurate representation of what my school day looks like.

Day 91, Friday:  All the formals that the kids go to give me an excellent excuse to take pictures.
And it's one of the few times that Kevin is willing to stand still and smile at the camera.

Great collages. :D

All great photos. Even the cherry blossom photos have charm to them. (You can boost the saturation and brightness in editing to get the photo to look like the reality, too.) ;)

We're Settlers freaks here, too. Of course, I haven't played in months. It's hard to play with only one person, or even two. I always win. What's the fun of that?

My favorites are my Grandchildren of course. I think the cherry blossom one is outstanding. Can you send me a bigger pic of that and the formal?

Lovin your week of photos! Love the formal shot - OH WOW - THAT DRESS!!!! - And your DC shot looks fantastic to me - but I know how it goes when it doesn't quite turn out like you had planned. Sorry you had to send your hubby off again. I bet that is super HARD on everyone!

The composition in day 86 is outstanding with the cherry blossoms framing the Jefferson Memorial.
