The Weekend

I haven't done a weekend re-cap for sometime so thought now might be a good time. And, I was actually able to experiment with my camera so wanted to share some of those photos.

Saturday afternoon my dad and Andrew thought it would be good to put the shredder to work so cut up the limbs of some of the windfalls we had recently. Here they are sawing away.
And into the shredder it goes.
I, meanwhile, was "documenting". My code for actually just taking pictures while everyone else is working. Louie was helping me document and being a subject.
I was trying to be a little creative here and this was the result. I really like how it turned out and am happy to have actually used my camera to some to some of it's full potential.
Another creative angle.
Growing out of an old growth stump. Andrew liked this shot. It's the same old growth stump from the last picture, just showcasing a little more of the actual texture.
Can you find the hiding creature in this photo?
I sat down with Louie for a minute, because we all know that "documenting" is exhausting and I was a bit surprised when something jumped! It was a little baby frog.
Here he, or she, is up close.
And of course, all the while Star was standing at the fence observing.

Overall the weekend was quite nice. The weather was much better than it has been the last few weekends and we actually got to see the sun, a nice change! Andrew and I didn't really do anything, but we got to spend time together so which is always lovely.

How was your weekend, did you do anything exciting?

  1. I love the tree stump pictures the most, but OH MY GOSH how can I possibly pass up a post with a dog? Louie is definitely the PERFECT name for him!

    As for the Casa Christensen, um, we did nothing exciting last weekend. It was taxes and housework for us lol.
