365 Project -- #99-105

I took a break from blogging last week, but I didn't leave my camera.  I stayed away from all things blog when I realized that after a whole week of no blog headers, link buttons, etc., I was one of Photobucket's .25% of customers still without access to my account.  That's 25 in 10,000 people.  I don't know who those other 24 people are, but I'm sure they were as mad as I!  Since my account is still inaccessible, I used a combination of a Google photo host and a new Photobucket account to re-create the beauty in my blogs.  (I for one think they're pretty, anyway.)

Here are my images from April 9 through April 15.  We had a mini spring that weekend, and then it snowed a few days ago.  Huh!  (And I promise to spend this week visiting your blogs, since I stayed away last week!)

I had a book-it-and-shoot-it photo session, and within four days the job was almost over!  I enjoyed capturing this homeschool family fife and drum band on a beautiful Saturday.  (You'll see more of them in future posts.)

[99] April 9 -- Fife and Drum

[100] April 10 -- Boot buckle

Dinner is always something I can shoot!

[101] April 11 -- Beef roast with mushroom gravy

Even though it has been c-c-cold here all spring, I happened to notice my brunnera happily blooming in the gloom!!  Yay for early spring flowers!  These flowers are teeny-tiny, but my macro lens does them justice beautifully.  My coral bells are also coming back to life.  Spring is so precious to me this year, after a interminable winter which lingers on.

[102] April 12 -- Spring brunnera

[103] April 13 -- Coral Bells "marmalade"

Sweet Joseph and I dropped Jacob off downtown again, and we decided to visit the Shedd Aquarium.  Joseph loves dolphins and clownfish.  I was able to capture a few decent shots through all that thick glass.

[104] April 14 -- Sea turtle

[105] April 15 -- Clownfish

And that concludes my "moments" for the week--all the way from the Revolutionary War to exotic sea creatures!  Off to live life--and visit your blogs, too!
