I just went to Las Vegas. Before we left my son wanted me to drive the Las Vegas Blvd strip to see all the hotels and casinos. I took this picture from the car at Caesars Palace. Lots of symmetry in this picture.
The first picture is cream size. I went to Costco and bought a big jar of face cream, Elizabeth Arden Visible difference. That stuff is amazing. I have been using it for 2 days and it makes my skin so soft. I went to Sephora at JC Penney store yesterday to get some eye primer. They showed me this tiny tube of it. I don’t even think it has an ounce of cream in it. I have not used it yet but they raved about how great it is. The Costco cream was $20, the tiny tube of cream was $24.
While I was in that Sephora makeup place they showed me a brush to put on my makeup with. It is so soft and nice, so I bought it too. My husband came in and said he would take me to Harbor Freight store and I could get a brush cheap to put my makeup on with. I did go to the 99 cent store and buy a brush for 99 cent but it is not the same. The black brush is the Sephora brush, the small grey brush is like 20 cents from the 99 cent store. It came in a pack of 5 different brushes. I have not used it yet but it is probably crappy.
I do like the little dish that I also got at the 99 cent store. I put my lipstick in it.
My husband said “Do you have a boyfriend?”, because I bought some makeup. I don’t go anywhere without him, how could I have a boyfriend. I just wanted to try to look nice sometimes.
I got a present for my mother. I am going to go visit her next month. I wrapped the package in brown paper, it kind of looks like grocery bag paper. I got out my colored markers and decorated it with an abstract art. I just wanted to express myself, so I drew a picture. I can just hear her now “What is that supposed to be.” I will say, “It is not supposed to be anything, it is just better than brown paper.” She will say “Well, you should not have gotten me anything.” I will say “Just open it.”
I just bought these today. They are new, I have never seen them before. Pringles cinnamon sugar rolled up potato chips. I have not opened them yet. I am not sure they will taste good. The can says it is being sold for a limited time
We also got a new kayak. We are waiting until it warms up to try it out.
The Weekly photo challenge is yellow. With this week’s challenge, show us what yellow means to you.
I went to the grocery store and went to the lemons. There were a few people around, but I got out my camera and took a couple of pictures of the lemons. Then I walked off. I bet they all thought “Why is that crazy lady taking a picture of the lemons.”
Because they are yellow, that is why. Then I noticed there are yellow lights on my Christmas tree so of course I took a picture of them. I am sure this picture does not really shout YELLOW, but it is.
The weekly photo challenge is Cover Art.
I decided to make witch legs and put it in my tree for this challenge. We went to the store to get pool noodles. Well you can’t find them in October. I found the socks at Walmart and the shoes reminded me of the ones in The Wizard of OZ. The pipe cover foam was at Home Depot and I bought some wire. Hubby cut 3 strands of wire and twisted it up and put one each into the foam to be able to bend it. Then I put on the socks and hot glued on the shoes. Boy, the glue is hot. I got it on my thumb (it burned) and dripped it on my carpet. I got the shoes glued on though. We taped on the socks around the top and then I wired it into my tree in the front yard. After I got done I got my camera and took the picture.
After that I went over to my rose bush and was going to take a picture of this beautiful red rose. I lost my balance and fell over and crashed into this wash we made with big rocks. My camera flew one way and I flew the other way. I scratched up my arm and both legs and got a huge bruise on my leg too. Luckily my camera did not break. While I was sitting in the wash, I took the picture of the rose.
So basically the only thing that crashed was me.
The Weekly photo challenge is Refraction.
For this photo challenge, show us what “refraction” means to you. It could be an image taken in a reflective surface, it could be light bent from behind an object, or it could mean remedial math homework.
This object is a living creature. It is all clear and reflects the sun that shines on it. I think it is some type of jelly fish.
The Weekly photo challenge is Fray.
Share a photo of what “fray” means to you — it could be a tear in a favorite pair of jeans, a street rumble just about to begin, or a friend diving into an oncoming wave at the beach.
Burning man is Monday. People are coming into town that go to Burning man and they are called Burners. They take strange vehicles and decorate their bikes to go into the desert for a week. It is like another world.
I saw a car that they made to look like a snake.
A pink fuzzy decorated bike with a pony head.
