Year 2/Day 198

Year 2 - Day 198

Will had to run some errands downtown for the estate and instead of trying to hassle with parking I just dropped him off and drove around.  While driving I found an interesting place to stop and take some pictures and walk around for a little bit.  It was very peaceful and quite.

We also decided to have one cheat night and had dinner at Longhorn Steakhouse.  I figured this would be a good place to get something kind of healthy.  I got a small filet steak, salad with raspberry vinaigrette (on the side), and broccoli.  We didn’t get any appetizers or desserts and I only had one piece of bread.

…But…

I still managed to feel gross afterwards.  Bloated and greasy.  Yuck.  Not the greatest idea.

So…I got my days mixed up and now I have a weird day.  :/

The sky was beautiful today.  I love moments like this.  Things feel so peaceful and calm.

Year 2/Day 134

Year 2 - Day 134

Headed back home today.  Well, for a couple days at least.  Then we’re back to South Carolina again.

Year 2/Day 129

Year 2 - Day 129

The six of us did some site seeing today.  We decided to take the lazy way up to the top of Stone Mountain and looked around there for a little bit.  Then we walked around the park, did some shopping, took a train ride, and got some food.  Good times!

Year 2/Day 88

Year 2 - Day 88

So, our first Halloween in the new place…
We bought lots of candy because, well, kids and all…

Not. One. Kid…

Damn. That’s a lot of candy…

Cotton balls

I love cotton ball clouds.  Just seeing them floating in the sky makes me smile. 

Little happy clouds, full of hope and warm fuzzies…

Watercolor skies

I know, I know.  I didn’t even manage to take one day off!

All day long things kept jumping out at me yelling “take my picture” “look at me” “don’t forget”.

The one thing that I loved most about today was the sky.  I always love when there are clouds mixed in the sky.  Today was no exception.

All day long I noticed the clouds, and on my way home they were especially beautiful.  My phone would do it no justice, so I didn’t try.  Every few minutes, or every few turns, the colors were changing and creating a beautiful watercolor in the sky.

Sunsets.  That’s what I miss most about Florida.  No matter what mood I was in, a trip down to the beach to watch the sunset would make my day.  Especially when the clouds were in the sky creating magical creatures and feelings of being trapped inside them.

Day 31

Day 31

This was the view I saw after a 3 mile walk today.  I decided to walk Leeloo (older husky) and followed the trail Niki has been taking recently.  It’s quite a nice walk, with plenty of trees and walkways.  I was lucky this time too.  When I got back to the car, I got the joy of seeing a train go by.

I LOVE trains.  :)

I can’t help it.  I know I may sound like a 9 year old boy, but I do.  I love trains.  I will patiently wait for them in traffic…holler “Train!” whenever I hear one…and always watch them as they roll on by.  When I turned around to head back to the car and go home, I saw this view and snapped a few pictures.  I figured if I didn’t get a good picture of the train, this would definitely work.

I’m actually pretty pleased with this shot.  Normally, I think sky pictures are rather generic and ho-hum.  This one really catches my eye, though.  I love how the trees are blacked out and sort of frame the large puffy cloud.  Of course, the sun rays are a nice added bonus.  :)
