This day started out by the lake. First we attended an outdoor service, then we lingered there. The sunshine warmed and the view is one of my favorites!
MT had a fun time watching the guys trying to sink the floating deck by being too many on board at a time. They did get wet, but the deck is still floating.
MT captured me with my phone open. Most days I use it to capture the small and big things that makes up our life. This week I’ve brought with me my big camera (the dSLR) as well. It has been a good photo-week. I really want to keep taking both cameras with me, if not for every small thing, so at least a couple times a week. I love my phone-photos, but most days they can’t compare to my big camera. I also love how MT more easily are picking up the big camera to capture something he sees, than my phone (although he sometimes will do that too).
The water was quite warm, but I could not convince MT to take a proper swim. I even said we could go a place with less people and deeper water. But: no. So then we waded in the water. First me (top photo), then him.
When we got back home MT wanted to go play football (soccer). While he was away I found a book and a cup of coffee and found myself a place in the sunshine. I’m desperate to soak up every moment now that summer is at it’s last leg around here and my vacation is over.
In the evening my mom invited us over for supper and my brother and family came as well. After food and coffee we enjoyed the outdoors and a few of us (me sometimes, but mostly MT, my niece and my brother) threw a Frisbee around with lots of smiles and silliness.
We’re all so busy at times, so it felt good to spend some hours with each other. To laugh, talk and just being together. Connecting. Being updated a little on each others life.
Late evening we got another beautiful pinkish sunset. Good night!
At the beginning of this week I decided that one of the things I wanted to capture was ‘where I stand‘-type of photos. For some reason I love those kinds of photos, almost as much as I love taking photos of my coffee mug. Almost. I’m glad to see that the photos from today was me standing with my bare feet – first in the lake; then this evening: in the grass. I love the summer season and bare feet is a summer staple – and favorite – for me.
Thank you so much for coming by my little online world today and this week!
I’ll be back with more posts next week, but I’m not sure if I can manage to work on the album just yet. It’s start-up season at work, so that will need some attention from me – and the harvest season on the farm have just started, still plenty to do before we can see the end of that. I’m happy to have gathered the photos and put down some words here on the blog. That is a really good start on this project.
It’s been fun!
