Follow Friday #14

Q. What do I do when I are not reading?

When I are not reading I do lots of things. Hehe.
But seriously.
Umm... I take pictures. I have a photography blog and a photography/design Facebook page (which is updated more than my blog). My camera is really like an extra, freaky appendage. I've been taking photos for as long as I can remember. And I've been actually SERIOUS about photography and editing and design and all that stuff for at least the last 10 years.  I LOVE taking pictures. I love being able to see things through my camera that people don't even see without one.

I spend time with my beautiful little girls (both pictured above, 3rd picture is my nephew playing frisbee in the ocean). They are my life. My world. I love them both more than anything else. My ongoing divorce issues have not exactly made things easy for either one of them... me either, but they're more important than I am. Long story short, I am just happy that I have both of them here and together now. They are my sunshine.

Like I said above somewhere, I do design too. Mostly my own but I do stuff for friends every once in a while. I like to make mock covers for up and coming novels too. Those are wicked fun.  

(ps, click on each one of the 3 pictures immediately above and it will take you to their respective pages!)

I really don't know what else I do. Haha. I'm sure there are other things. Like for a while, my mom and I were feeding a starving horse we named Lilly. She's about 30 minutes away and her owner just wasn't feeding her. Wasn't feeding her, she had nails from her shoes coming through her hooves. She was dirty. She was lonely. We fed her hay twice a week for 3 months until my brother in law died. Two days after that happened we went back and filled up her grain bin so that my mom's friend could distribute her food when she fed her own horses (Lilly had jumped the fence to join the other horses in THEIR pasture and has been there ever since). Her "owner" has been buying her grain ever since then with my mom's friend putting it out for her. We haven't been able to make it to see her as much as we'd like since then. But she's beautiful. She always was beautiful but now I look at her and my heart is just filled with so much happiness.

She went from this: 

Skinny and scraggly... to this:
Beautiful creature.

We may have saved her... but she saved me. And I will love her forever for how she saved me.

And I reckon that be it. How about you?

  7. Oh my gosh! Did you take those pictures yourself? They're so beautiful! :) I'm only an amateur photographer (as in, I still have an old Canon that now costs under a hundred dollars), but I agree that taking pictures is awesome! :)

    Hope you have an awesome weekend!

  9. When I took that Jane Austen's character quiz, I was also Elizabeth Bennet...which made me so happy because I have a literary crush on Mr. Darcy. :)
