Day 13’s photo prompt was mirror.
I attended the CVC East Conference at the Virginia Beach Convention Center today. I took in lectures given by Dr. Andy Roark (amazing fellow… you should check him out)
Seriously, I just watched five of his YouTube videos when I was getting the link for that video.
I ate my lunch outside today and that is when the mirror opportunity presented itself…
What were the chances I’d find that wonderful opportunity!
Tomorrow’s photo challenge: eye
I feel like I cheated for this one. Everyone on Instagram seemed to be working with fonts and books. I took a screenshot.
Today’s Photo Challenge: Text
I thought it was clever but it may get me kicked out of the photo challenge.
Also today on Instagram…
I got out of my car and chased down this plastic bag this morning. I thought I was doing the right thing, you know. Saving the Earth, keeping our streets clean. When I got back in my car I noticed that the bag’s logo was not that of a grocery store or a convenience chain. No. It was labeled: Patient’s Belongings. Oh. Dear. God. What kind of cooties did I just come in contact with. Bleh. Oh no. Oh no! So much hand sanitizer, folks.
Residents of Virginia can thank me as the weather returns to normal over the next few days. All our wacky weather has been a result of my winter flag still being out. No worries! Spring flag is flying now!
Tomorrow’s photo challenge: Mirror
I guess I should be thankful for all of the rain this morning. Otherwise my ‘travel’ photo may have been a real drag. My travel today was just the daily commute – weeee!
Have no fear my friends concerned with safety. This photo was taken while I was stopped. Not only was I in a downpour but I was also stuck behind a school bus who makes the most ridiculous bus stops. Back when I was a youngin’, kids gathered from a block radius to all get on the bus at a mutual stop. This bus stops on the highway several times within less than a half mile. One bus stops, kids. Unity in your community starts by having fewer bus stops.
Other travel gems today include:
Tomorrow’s photo challenge: TINY!
I pass so many signs on my way to and from work. Easy, peasy. Signs.
Yeah. Easy. Until you forget you are supposed to be taking a picture of a sign and you have to make some quick maneuvers through traffic to get get on snapshot.
I stopped by one of our local vegetable stands and boom! Day 9 photo challenge complete.
Today there were lots of great sign post on Instagram. I’m going to share these with you guys instead of me running at the mouth.
Tomorrow’s Challenge: Travel
And we trudge on! With a week of photo challenge under my belt I come to day 8: My Sunday. Today was a busy day with Mother’s Day visiting, yard work, and grocery shopping. The morning started out with birding! I have volunteered for the 2nd Virginia Breeding Bird Atlas. My mission is to visit my assigned area (my block) for twenty hours between April and October for the next four years. Two of my visits have to be nocturnal visits. I’m on the lookout for birds and especially birds who are trying to or have already made a love connection! I have to keep my peepers open for singing males, birds collecting nesting materials, fledglings and other such suggestions that breeding is taking place in my block. Not to sound like a total nerd, but it is super exciting! Today I saw a pair of Northern Cardinals alerting their fledgling of my presence (score!) and a female Carolina Wren moving her fledglings along (double score!)
This is an almost enchanting path located in my block. I have high-fived myself numerous times that the owner of this property has granted me permission to bird here! Eeeeee! So much fun!
