Obligations Theme #203

Posted in Photography on December 12, 2011 by paintedmeadows

One of my hubby’s many obligations is driving me 5 hours each way to my neurologist appointments.  This was the view outside the windshield while the sun was setting.  The trees in the distance were almost on fire.  Most of our snow has melted so the driving was good.

Passion Theme #216

I would say I have a passion for photographing sunsets!  I just love them.  This one is SOOC other than the frame around it.  I took it out the window of the truck on our way to Edmonton.  It was so beautiful!!


PS.  So sorry for all of the typos.  Sheesh!  I’m losing it!!

The Weekend Theme #329

Posted in Photography on December 12, 2011 by paintedmeadows

On the weekend was the Christmas Party put on by my husband’s office for the kids.  Somehow I ended up as the official photographer.  It was fun but kinda stressful!  lol.  This is my son, Aidan.  He just loves Santa and isn’t shy at all.  Santa got a ton of hugs from him.  Very cute!!

Thank you!!

I have been trying to keep up with this entire 365 day challenge.  I am behind now but am going to catch up this week as we are almost done the year and I really want to complete it for my own satisfaction.  It has been a really tough year for me.  I have something called Trigeminal Neuralgia which causes me constant pain in the left side of my face.  It is a horrible condition as anyone who has it will tell you.  Some days I just can’t move because of it.  The pain is severe and I take alot of medication to help me just get through a day so some days posting just isn’t possible for me.  Last week we were away seeing my neurologist and she is going to get me in to see a neurosurgeon for a surgery to try to relieve the pain.  A little scarey as it will be a craniotomy.  Anyways, making a long story here, sorry.  When I came home and checked my mail I had a wonderful and uplifting email from  Ashkitty has awarded me the Liebster Award which is an award to draw the attention of followers to bloggers with less than 200 followers.
