It's me in the mirror on Monday, Feb 28

Of course, I had to find the windex and clean the mirror first or it would have been me in the toothpaste spotted mirror. :)

Yes, I know I should be getting on to her for playing with the blinds but the expression on her face when she notices her reflection on the glass table is just too priceless to pass by. I took this picture while sitting in my recliner.

Here is the no make up version of me on Monday. I love the light from the picture window in my kitchen. Shh, don't tell Curtis I am using his coffee cup. I like the colors better for a picture than the ones I usually use.

Enough already! 6/52

This week's theme was "words." It took me a few days but when this new round of winter weather hit us this morning, I knew I wanted to write in the snow. I live in Texas. We are not supposed to have wind chill factors below zero. We are not supposed to have ice and snow on the ground for multiple days at a time. Please, make it stop!

Yes, I know it is actually Tuesday as I type this but I didn't get on the computer but for a minute yesterday. With the 4 days of ice and snow we had last week, I couldn't resist taking my self portrait in the elements. I took dozens of these before I got a few in focus. If you look closely, you can see the remote in my hand.

5/52 Because of this boy

5/52 Because of this boy, originally uploaded by dettaowens.

When this little guy (my grandson, Seth) came into my life 7 years ago, I was content to take pictures with the point and shoot and was generally happy. However, when he became mobile, the only pictures I got were the back of his head. I got my first DSLR and my obsession began. He is still one of my favorite subjects. However, his little sister is now close second. This picture was taken after I bribed him on Sunday by saying I would toss the football around after he posed a few times. haha
