Hipsta …

So I’ve started my journey of 365, a bit late, but, better late than not at all…

I think what I’ll do is post once a week, everything I’ve done for 7 daysStill playing with settings nothing too fancy

About last nite……

We had a worm moon. I was lucky enough to get a glimpse

b4 the clouds moved in. This is off of my kitchen. , and yep, my 2 Nd day of hipsta.

Using salvador84 and shilshole+ pop rox.

B4 I dressed it up:) , I like both of them.

Black and White People

 

well here it is the end of the month and Fraggy and I do our little photo exchange thingy, this time it was B&W anything. My Brother-in-law came to town, so I figured I show him something’s that have changed since he’s been gone.. and I kept with the theme of B&W.

 

this is Ontario State Park.

we use to have a beach, a natural shoreline beach.. well Lake Ontario pretty much destroyed that this year. the floods were crazy bad, if you live along the lake

Autumn Splender

As far as weather goes, well im pretty lucky to be living in Western New York, at least this fall.The weather has been outstanding. Here it is the middle of October and the  temp is 77 degrees. and sunny. so ive been trying to take full advantage.  Not only is this  a colorful time of year, but if you love pig roasts and clam bakes..tis the season, and that why i say autumn splendor:)

because we all know whats to follow….. all that white stuff, which i am not a fan of. so  here we go. oh and PS if you thought you were going to see colorful leaves…. im sorry 🙂

one of the best things about this time of year……  people tend to do pig roasts and clam bakes..2 of my most favorite things……

29717841563_2476a24154_o
people put hot sauce and butter on theirs.. not me just let me at ’em.
30263237931_eb5906144b_o
this is our friend who invited us.. hes friends with the people who put this event on every year, no charge!!!
29719783574_4645bdd97e_o

staying fit……

Well let me start by wishing everyone a happy Autumn, its been rather nice here in Western New York, temps have been in the mid 70’s and mostly sunny. all of our Falls are not this way, so I’m a happy camper at the moment. Makes my drives to and from Buffalo ,NY so much easier.

Things are not going as well as the family would like with my cousin ,so my mind has been preoccupied , and im also trying to stay on top of things ,as i said b4 in my last blog, you must take care of your self, get you flu shot, get your screenings..all of them!!! its so important.

30021320772_3188ebbc8f_o_pe

So now that ive taken care of all of that… i have also joined  our community center, for water aerobics  at the Aquatic center. we are so fortunate to have this beautiful building…here, let me show you….

30100751836_d13d9cced5_o_pe
they also have child care, and this is the outside of the little playground for the little people 
30050913111_ae682aec85_o_pe

From Where I Sit…….

well its that boring time of year, I dont feel like traveling to Buffalo (my HomeTown), its just a blah time of year.. so, i have one more collection, i guess u could say it all started with my iPhone, and a few contests.. and of course the job i retired from…school bus driving, all my down time was spent watching others… lol… just not on the bus, but it helped me hone in on subjects …maybe better:)

 one of my little kids lived in the inner city, and everyday I’d wait around the corner and this one day, well lots of days…. I’d watch drug buys go down. this car is pulling up to buy dope from these guys. this iphonograph actually won me several prizes.

well that will do it for now, of course i could go on and on, and if spring doesnt hurry up and get sprung..ill be back with more of this.

all of these were done with my i Phone. and several different apps, on my phone.

if you stopped by, thank you in advance. have a pleasant week
