Playing a little catch up. I guess I have spring fever early because I have been cleaning out closets, organizing cabinets, and dusting everything. I found a suggestion on Pinterest on how to add shine to your hardwood floors without using expensive or harsh chemicals. It called for equal parts of vinegar and olive oil. I already had the ingredients so I thought why not?!? I put the vinegar and olive oil in a spray bottle and then sprayed small sections at a time on the floor. I then took a damp mop and mopped over to spread out the mixture. I took an old towel and buffed the floor until it shined. It did not take too long because I only have a small area in the front of the house. Thank goodness! I thought the floors looked silky smooth. The word for January 18 was silky so I thought this picture fit. I took the shot from this angle because this is the level I was on, my knees, while buffing into a "silky" shine.
January 19 theme is "looking out the window". I took a picture out our front window. The weather has been wonderful this past weekend. Temps in the 60's. Of course, we live in Texas so it could change at anytime. If you don't like the weather, just wait cause it will change. LOL
Finally caught up! Today's theme is tree(s). I love this willow tree in my backyard. In the spring and summer when there are leaves on it the branches provide a much need shade over the open patio. I wanted to show the picture below I took before Christmas when we had the ice storm. This is the same tree all covered in ice. I was so afraid the heaviness of the ice would break the branches, but we were lucky it did not.
I love to capture those special moments in people's lives through photography. I am constantly looking at a scene and thinking how could that work in a photo session, or what angle would work to capture the beauty that God has blessed us with.
