July 22nd, 2013 (Photography)

I know what you are thinking...."Finally! She is writing again!"
Yes, I haven't written in quite some time.

So what has been happening in my life?

Well, to start it off, Ian Borowicz came for a visit from the 26th of June to the 9th of July- that went awesome!!
He helped my Dad work outside, we went shopping a couple times, and generally speaking, we all had a great time.

It is summer....obviously, but it has been in the 90s and mid 90s, so it has been pretty hot. Just making sure to stay hydrated- Water for the win!! ;)

So, we have started the garden- yes, late this year, but better late than never!
We have tomatoes, peppers, green beans, lima beans, squash, and sweet potatoes growing so far. We'll be doing a lot more in the garden these coming days...and weeks. Such a blessing to have home grown produce!

I am doing a goat trade with a friend of mine (who I haven't seen in a good while), so we both can have new blood lines for our goats and their goats. So, we will be getting Kiko and Spanish in our blood line, if the trading goes as planned. Yay! Kiko goats have good resistance to many problems goats generally have, especially with worms- so I am pretty excited with it all.

Photography has been coming along nicely. I have been editing a birthday party from June and have gatherings from June and April (I think it is April at least) that need editing. It has been fun. Editing takes forever! That is why it is best to do all you can to get your settings right- that way it needs less editing, at least when it comes to the lighting and so on. But I do enjoy it- if you don't enjoy doing something as a hobby, why do it?

Visit my Photography on Facebook here!! :D Feel free to 'like' it, if you like what you see, or contact me and maybe we can do a session together!

Sometime, this month or the coming month, I am going to do photography for a new friend of mine who's baby has Down Syndrome. They figured out after she was born that she had it, so it was a shock to the family and relatives. They are learning new things every day and I pray God will give them strength to take care, love, and thank God for her. It will be a good experience for me to meet her and take some pictures. Let's just hope they turn out!

School has been going alright as well.

Last week, my sister and I went to Shady Maple, in Lancaster, with a bunch of girl friends, for my one friend's birthday. We had a good time chatting, eating and just spending time together.
Shady Maple had great food (we went there for lunch)- broiled breaded chicken, creamed onions, stuffing, mashed potatoes, broccoli, salad and salad add-ons, all kinds of vegetables, etc, etc. The ambiance especially was BEAUTIFUL!!
We went to some shops around there as well.
Yes, before you ask, I brought my camera, so I got some interesting shots of places we visited.

A fun shot of my sister goofing off.

Hope you all are having a great summer and thanks again for stopping by!!
