Weekly photo challenge: Weight (less).

The weekly photo challenge is Weight (less).

This week, share a photo of something marked by its weight — or its air of weightlessness.

I just back from a vacation to Mustang Island state park in Texas. My son is out of school for winter break for 3 weeks. We packed up and drove to Texas.

This is the waves on the Gulf. It was wavy and foggy. Waves are heavy and fog is light and weightless.

Logs are very heavy but they float in the water. Once they land on the sand, water logged, they are very heavy.

Beautiful pink clouds, floating in the sky. The sun going down, making the sky pink and the sand glowing. It was beautiful. As I stood there watching the clouds, it got so colorful with corals and pinks and orange colors covering the whole sky.

Weekly photo challenge: Opps

This week the weekly photo challenge is Opps.

I have been knitting a glove for the past week. I watched a YouTube video on how to knit and I watched it over and over and knitted along. When it came to finishing it off where the finger tips are, the woman said just knit it and bind it off. She did not show how to do this on two circle knitting needles. You knit on one side and turn it and knit on the other side. I did not know how to connect the second side to the first so there is a flub in the glove.

See the space at the top on the right hand that is my error. I decided not to finish the thumb off so it is not done. Plus the glove is huge on my hand.

The lady on the video had really long fingers. I knitted mine shorter than what she said to do but they cover most of my fingers. OOPS. Back to starting over. I will look for a smaller glove to knit.

Weekly photo challenge: Careful

In response to The Daily Post’s weekly photo challenge: “Careful.”

We went to Craters of the moon National Monument in Idaho. Craters of the Moon is a vast ocean of lava flows and cinder cones. It is black lava everywhere. We stopped at the steep lava hill and my son wanted to walk to the top. Then he ran down. You have to be careful because if you fall, it could skin you up pretty good.

The little kid in the picture was really running down the slope. It looked a lot blacker in real life. The black didn’t come out real black in the pictures. We went to the campground and it was just black rough lava. We didn’t stay there because it was really hot there.DSCN0658u

Weekly photo challenge: Change

In response to weekly photo challenge: Change.     The supermoon eclipse. At first I could not see anything. It was cloudy. Then the clouds parted and I saw the moon.

Then the clouds started moving over it. The view changes but I could still see some of it.

Then the clouds almost covered it again making it all look grey.

It is now back to normal, really bright in the sky. For a couple of hours the change in the moon was wonderful.
