HA! See what I did there with the title.
I amuse myself.
So yeah! I've been busy with kids and school and me and work and Robert and him driving me nuts (someone give that man a job!) and Saturday I photographed a wedding. I took Carus along as my second shooter/assistant and she did great! It was a long, bright, sunny (translation: bit warm) day. But it was a perfect day for a wedding. I used to work with the bride before she left us (*sniff*). It was a gorgeous wedding. The Love is strong in these two. (Robert said he could see The Love in the pictures.) I'll share more photos when I'm done (and she's seen them, of course). I'm loving all the images I got so it's been easy to pick the best of the best - I just have to make sure everyone is looking at me and smiling.
250/365 This was their first sneak peak of the images. I love how content she looks to be in his arms.
Since I've been working on wedding images I haven't picked up my big camera for 365s and have a bunch of Instagram photos for the rest of this week.
251/365 - Putting braids in Carus's hair so she will have crimpy hair in the morning. (Yes, that's Leia's nose. She's nosy.)
See. Also: I do love her style.
252/365 - My garden is still growing. Actually, even though the trees are starting to change colors and drop their leaves and we had some big thunderstorms last week, we've been getting into the 90s this week...so bonus summer? Late summer? Either way, it's been good for growing stuff.

The tomatoes are FINALLY turning red. Unfortunately I'm not getting enough at once to can them, which is what I wanted to do. Meh, there's always next year.

253/365 - See the black dot above the toilet? That's a spider hanging there. I used the restroom, got in the shower, and when I got out this guy was hanging there. Where I was moments before (it was a quick shower). I've since found one sitting on my shoulder as I went to start working, Robert squished one after it interrupted his vid-ya game ('video game' said like Hank from King of the Hill), and then he missed one that was running across the floor towards the bed last night. It ran under the bed and hasn't been seen since. I'm choosing to believe he vacated the premises. Or that the boogeyman got him for me. From the consensus on Facebook, it looks like all the spiders are coming inside to escape the heat.
I don't have a problem with spiders and actually find them fascinating - when they are outside or behind glass or in pictures and videos. They may give me the heebie jeebies, but they will get to live. In fact, there are a few in the garden and I've even brushed by them/touched them and I didn't kill them (I did do some involuntary karate). (Anything I know to be poisonous, however, will be squished. Very squished.)
