Day, I think 45 of working from home. Not sure I’ve discovered any other positives of working from home, this week. But… I finally started working on the basement. I did take some before pictures and I will post them when the project is done.
I do know that I’m going to need lots and lots and lots of garbage bags for this project. I’m also going to try to find some new homes for a few things. So if you could use a day bed, let me know. Otherwise, it will be going to the landfill on June 7 as part of the City Wide Clean-Up. Along with several tables and chairs, I’m sure.
I might post the items that are getting downsized, to see if anybody wants any of those things before they are consigned to the ash heap of history.
Here it is. The virtual end of the 2019 backlog. Yes, there are still a handful of senior pictures out there to curate, but I’m going to finish those off on Senior Sundays.
This means, to the relief of many I’m sure, I will be going back down to just 1 or zero posts a day. I’m not sure when my default time of day will be to publish said posts, but if you have an opinion, feel free to leave it in the comments section.
Here are the final pictures from Alexis and Kupono’s wedding:
We made it America!!!
I need to start by wishing my mother-in-law Colleen a happy birthday. Happy birthday Colleen!
I hope your birthday was amazing! All the best people were born in May!
Can you imagine being born in a different month?
This is the final collection of images that were triggered by Elainie coming home back in September. Most of these pictures were taken on the High Trestle Trail Bridge.
This is the last collection of pictures from Elainie’s homecoming and believe it or not, this is nearly the end of the 2019 backlog.
It will be a relief to not be in backlog, seems like I’ve been in it forever!
I need to start out by wishing my brother-in-law the happiest of birthdays! Happy birthday Jason!
I almost starting to think that these birthday tributes need to be more than 5 pictures!
I hope it was the happiest of birthday Jason!
It is time to unveil the second collection of pictures from the wedding of Alexis and Kupono!
One more collection of pictures from the Baugher Wedding still in the hopper!
I should start by saying Happy birthday to Kalista. So, happy birthday Kalista!
I hope it is a very happy birthday indeed!
It is time for the 9th and nearly last installment of pictures that were triggered by Elainie’s homecoming!
I do believe that when you are from Iowa and you marry somebody from California, you are legally obligated to have your picture taken in front of corn.
One final collection of Elainie Homecoming pictures left to go!
I don’t even know how many work days from home it is now. I think it is 40. Who knows any more. But I did discover a new positive this week.
That the new positive. I like being able to use my lunch hour to mow. I’m not a big fan of mowing. I actually enjoy yard work, but I don’t enjoy mowing. I feel like I lose a whole night when I have to mow. But mowing during my lunch hour feels like a good use of time.
Alexis got married last December in a very exclusive affair. I think there was maybe 10 of us there. I got invited to take pictures. Here are some of those pictures:
There is more to come from this wedding. I told you that there were a lot more Stenslands to come!
I need to start this post by pointing out that today is a very important day. Today is Stephanie’s birthday! Happy birthday Stephanie!
I hope your birthday is safe and amazing!
I’m going to be away from computers for much of today, so I won’t be able to reveal the RULE OF THIRDS submissions until some point tomorrow. However, that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t start working on this week’s theme right away:
A SELF-PORTRAIT picture is quite simply, a picture of yourself. Almost, but not quite as easy as RULE OF THIRDS.
I look forward to seeing your interpretations!
I also recently added to THE CANVAS WALL PROJECT. I eight new 16×20 images to the wall. I’m almost done with the project. I have basically the bottom row to finish. Most of those pictures have been ordered too and should arrive sometime this week.
However, these are the eight 16×20 images that were most recently added to the wall:
After I get the pictures that should arrive on Wednesday in place, I believe I will only need 4 more pictures to finish this project off. But it could be more. I could also be less. But my initial calculations indicate 4 more.
But I’ve been wrong before. Don’t want to be wrong any more.
Here in the 5th set of pictures triggered into existence by Elainie’s homecoming last September, Elainie makes a reappearance.
But there are also quite a few pictures of Alexis, Kupono, and Kanoa.
Of course, plenty of Sabas in this collection as well!
You’d think that we were halfway through all the Stensland photos, but we’re just warmed up now. So much more Stensland in our future!
Another collection of pictures that were triggered by Elainie coming home in September, but don’t include a single picture of Elainie.
Here is the fourth collection from that set of photos. Exclusively of Alexis, Kupono, and a very young Kanoa.
So many Stensland pictures left in the hopper. So many!!
This post is another in the series of pictures that were triggered by Elainie coming home back in September. However, there are no pictures of Elainie in this collection. All the pictures in this collection are of Alexis, Kupono, and Kanoa.
So much kissing!
Don’t worry, there are a ton more Stensland photos still to come!
I need to start this post by announcing that the Sharp family is making laundry detergent like crazy and donating it to area food banks like IMPACT and the Toreador Pantry.
However, they need more laundry detergent jugs, so they have set up a garbage can at the end of their driveway where people can donate jugs for them to fill. No jug is too small or too big.
You can find the donation dropoff spot at the end of their driveway.
The live at 1005 South Division Street in Boone. Basically keep going south on Division Street until you can’t go any farther. There will be some photos of their work shared at a later point.
Thanks to anybody that donates!
Happy birthday to Kelly! She doesn’t subscribe to this blog, so she will never see this, but happy birthday anyways:
I hope it is a great birthday!
Time for another collection of Stensland pictures I took when Elainie came home last fall:
A reminder that I love the candid pictures that I take between the posed pictures so much more than I do the posed pictures. But that is maybe just me.
So much more coming from Elainie’s homecoming.
