I don’t want to do homework. 3 weeks in to the semester and I’m done. Can we say senioritis!?! 😀 Never fear…I’ll manage, AND get my homework done 😉
But right now, it’s time for a post.
Remember how after Christmas break I said something about wanting to make it last longer, and I would try to simulate that by posting Christmas break recaps over the next few weeks? Here’s post #2 of my long-awaited recap!
My mom and I have a new tradition of going to Lake McDonald on New Year’s day to take pictures, freeze our fingers and rears, and enjoy the scenery and company. This year (year #2), we realized that our plan could be somewhat complicated. New Year’s day would land on a Sunday, the first day of the Skier’s Worship service my mom leads at a near-by ski resort. What to do!??! Well go on New Year’s eve, naturally! So poor Dad went to work, and we went adventuring!
Destination – nearly deserted lake surrounded by snow and snow-covered trees. Oh, and it’s beautiful too. Sign me up!
So this reflection…dual meaning anyone? 😉 You might be in an English Literature class if….
I adore the rustic gathering of these rocks. Don’t ask me why, exactly. All I could say is that when I was a wee child, I wanted to be a geologist. BADLY. I would collect random rocks to the point that my parents would have to limit me. And I ALWAYS wanted to by those shiny polished rocks at tourist-trap gift shops. Clearly, my aspirations in life have changed, but I still have a fascination with rocks.
Ummmm…yeah. I definitely still like rocks!
Photography is a certainly one of my mom’s favorite hobbies. And she’s got the camera to prove it!
But trust me, this is no serious photographic event.
See what I mean!
Although this is a pretty nice picture.
Don’t let this fool you…I probably started giggling right after mom finished taking the shot!
And kudos to mom for remembering to bring a tripod! Who needs a studio when you have Lake McDonald?
Well friends, I should probably get back to work. Constructive procrastination can only win for so long, you know. Although it is about time for some dinner…….AHH!
Stay tuned for a super-nifty sounding cookie recipe I recently stumbled upon!
