This week has been a Longgggg one.
My teenage son got his first real job, which is a huge “hip hurray,” but he doesn’t have his driver’s license yet. So you know what that means?
That means the good old mom (that would be me) has been playing personal chauffeur.
If we lived in town, that wouldn’t be a big deal. He could ride his bike, or I could run him to work and get back home quickly. But we don’t live in town.
I drove him to work four days this week. And because he worked six-hour shifts each day, I had to run him into town, come back home, and go back to pick him up six hours later.
He still has to get his school work and household chores done every day, and I had to squeeze all my projects and work in between it all.
I’m truly glad he got this job, but man I’m tired!
I think he may be having second thoughts about how great it will be when he’s a grown up and has to do this 5 days a week for 9 hours a day.
Welcome to reality, Son!
All that to say, the weekend couldn’t come soon enough for me.
One of the projects I worked on between running back and forth to town was an exciting, but unexpected one.
A magazine contacted me wanting to use photos of my guest house in their magazine.
Normally, I’d be jumping up and down about a magazine feature. But all the original photos that I took when we remodeled are forever gone, because I drowned the computer they were on in my bathtub last year. 🙁
So I spent the week basically redecorating the room and shooting all new photos to send them.
I bought that wonderful rusty pitchfork a few weeks ago when my daughter and I went on a day trip together, and I had to include it in the new guest house photos.
I’ve wanted a rusty old pitchfork for a long time, and I got this one for $2. I could have hugged the man when he told me the price!
You just got a sneak peek of some of my favorite shots! 🙂
I’ll let you know which magazine when it’s available on newsstands!
Vaya con Dios,
