Photo Challenge September 11th, 2010 - September 24thth, 2010

Hi everyone....
It's been a crazy last two weeks at work. In any case, I apologize up front because I took a whole bunch of photos these last two weeks, but didn't bother to date them...so this entire two weeks are all BONUS photos...I hope you'll understand and enjoy them anyway :) :) :)


Saturday ~ September 11th, 2010 I love craft supplies so much, I'll even take photos of them!!

Sunday ~ September 12th, 2010 Mama Kitty is one of the homeless cats that roams the apartment complex. She'll rub your hand with her head and that's as far as her friendliness extends, before she bites you...but still, she is a very nice cat :) :) :)


Monday ~ September 13th, 2010 ...part of my  pink tea setting ;)


Tuesday ~ September 14th, 2010 ....a typical cloudy Oregon day.


Wednesday ~ September 15th, 2010 Yellow mums.


Thursday ~ September 16th, 2010 This is a really beautiful tree making the transition to green to red for the autumn season. I took this photo from the car...you can tell by the dark blue stripe going across the top of the photo :)

Friday ~ September 17th, 2010 My father and I were looking for yardsales and this horse walks up to the fence to check us out :)


Saturday ~ September 18th, 2010 This was a rainbow with sunshine snapshot that I took right after it had rained.


Sunday ~ September 19th, 2010 Mama Kitty coming to greet my feet!!! I tried to get a full profile shot, but she moved too quick for me ;)


Monday ~ September 20th, 2010 This was actually taken the same day as the rainbow photo...this was while it was still raining. The mountains are completely covered up by clouds.

Tuesday ~ September 21st, 2010 A beautiful yellow flower with water droplets on that same rainy day :)


Wednesday ~ September 22nd, 2010 My view of the world on my way home from work :)


Thursday - September 23rd, 2010 This was my view on that same rainy day...AFTER it had stopped raining and BEFORE I came upon the rainbow :)


Friday ~ September 24th, 2010....as the clouds were beginning to lift...


Sorry about the photos this week. I like them all...but my ability to date photos in a timely fashion has gone out the window these last two weeks.

Work has been hard. My own personal job is fine. That's not the trouble...but things going around me at work...there's good and difficult. So I'm praying really hard to keep my spirits up :) :) Pray for work...because honestly I'm hearing one thing at work...and then I've recently read some newspaper articles that say different things...So I'm struggling to remember that God is the one who keeps it all together :) :) :)

Also, my uncle passed away last Sunday. He was my dad's older brother. He went to church with his wife on Sunday, came home, took a nap and never woke up. The funeral was yesterday. I wasn't able to go because it was on the east coast. I didn't get the chance to know him really well. However, now he's in heaven with Jesus where he can know complete joy...

In any case, the last two weeks have been unusual. I'm hoping that your last few weeks went better than mine...although truly I still found joy these past couple of weeks!!!! Mama Kitty likes to hang out on my neigbors porch fence...and she meows at me now when she trots over to greet me.  Oh, the raccoons...have also decided that my neighbor's porch is the place to party down at night. It's actually really funny watching them walk.

Oh, I'm posting a link to this YouTube video. It's a song called "White Knuckles" by a band called "OK Go". Click here to watch it. The song is simple and silly....and has super cute dogs, that were at a rescue shelter...all have since found homes...but this really has made me laugh and lifted me out of any bad moods I was in last week.

That's the news from Oregon. Love and hugs, Heather :)

Praying is part of my daily routine so I am praying for your work situation. We found out at work that two of our elderly patients, two ladies passed away. Life is always tough. It can be sad but I am grateful both lived long full lives and now they are in the presence of God. Amazing! I am sorry for the loss of your uncle but I am sure he is enjoying God's company. I posted the video on my Facebook. Very clever and cool. You always take awesome photos so I am going to have to learn how to handle those. Have a super weekend Hugs Anne

So sorry to hear that you have been having a tough time lately Heather! AND sorry about your Dad's brother...sad news! BUT...you are so right...rejoicing in Heaven! What a blessing to know that those who go before us are with our Saviour in glory! What do people do without such hope?

Your photos are pretty...I especially like the "after rain" and rainbow shots...just lovely!

Blessings to you!
In Him,
Camille

Oh, God bless Mama Kitty and all the others. I think the horse was looking for an apple or some goodie from you ;) Beautiful picture where the sun breaks thru the clouds.
Sorry you didn't get to your uncle's memorial service. But, what a way to go, in one's sleep, eh?

Your photos are beautiful--as usual!! You live in a gorgeous area of the country. Mama kitty is very pretty--what eyes!!! We don't have much color on our trees down here--lots of the leaves have already turned brown and dropped because of the drought we are experiencing now. We are supposed to get at least 4 inches of rain in the next few days. I sure hope we do--we need it terribly.
I'm sorry to hear about your uncle. I hope work continues going well for you. Take care.
