Oh my word, has it ever been a crazy month. I just finished up the haunted house for our school carnival, and it was an extremely stressful month-long process. On top of that, Sweeney got sick, plus there was a long list of events we had to help with over the past few weekends. It's such a relief to be done! I finally have time to relax and get back to this little blog. Thank you so much for all of the sweet and encouraging comments on my last post about Sweeney! I'm happy to report that he is getting better every day, and he's actually eating on his own and walking around the house! So, earlier this month I took part in The 100 Week project after seeing Jennifer's post about it. Basically, you document the week of October 1-7 by taking 24 photos with a disposable camera. As a kid, disposables were the only kind of camera I used, and I still have albums full of those photos. Let me tell you, it was a pretty big challenge for me to use one now that I've become so accustomed to using a digital camera every day. The disposable's flash kept going off automatically and it became pretty frustrating! I didn't take quite enough photos during the week, a few of them were taken after the seventh, but it was definitely an interesting experiment. Here are a few of my semi-decent shots.
I took the last photo today to finish up the roll so I could have it developed. Those are sugar skulls Jose and I decorated with our friends who created an altar to honor cyclists who have died, for the Día de los Muertos festival this weekend. If you're interested in seeing my entire roll a bit closer, you can see it here. Ok, back to my trusty old digital camera!
