Great Message today

Had a great day today. There was an awesome message at church. The "Church" is not just a building where people gather. The "church" is the people. No matter what church we attend, we are all God's children. We all need to look out for one another, pray for one another and accept one another for who we are.

Later in the afternoon. Had a wonderful nap and the evening was quiet and uneventful. Had a nice conversation with my Dad and a relaxing evening at home.

Have a wonderful night!

Great time, Great Friends

Headed up to Cadillac to visit with my friends Sandy and Sue. Sue is the short one! LOL
We all played high school softball together. We were (and still are) awesome players. So many great memories with these two wonderful ladies. We went to Maggie's Tavern for lunch and had a great visit.

This is Sue and I. AKA Thumper and Petey!
After lunch Sue had to go home and Sandy and I got to hang out for a while. We went to Wally World to get a few items for canning that her Mom and her were going to do later. After shopping we went to one of Sandy's Sister Annie's kids play football at Cadillac High. Cadillac has the best location of a football field. Lake Cadillac is part of the scenery. So pretty! Holy cow, was that fun and brought back some great memories. We did see a few people that we went to High School with. Ever notice how when you look in the mirror and think that you don't change much, but when look at others from a while ago--you go, wow-things have changed. Like some teachers that have gotten older. I know I still look and feel young! LOL Here is Sandy and Ma Spoon. They asked me to stay over and we had fun canning the tomatoes and having a few drinks with great laughs and socializing. Ma Spoon is overseeing the process and walking us girls through it. She has many years of experience with this canning business and she was teaching us the correct way to can. In the picture above, Sandy is grinding down the tomatoes and making juice out of it.
Is that like the coolest thing ever?!!!!!!
We all got to take turns at having a hand on the smasher. It was pretty cool! Well, TIMES UP!!! Time to take them out of the water bath. Great job Sandy!
You did not get burnt.
The picture below is the finished product of the tomato juice that we made.
In the morning we canned more tomatoes and later Sandy will make her Salsa.
I had the best day with my friends.
Looking forward to many more good times!

Things to do

Well, I am just getting started in trying to find items to purchase for my photo business that I want to get up and running eventually. I am just starting to research some items. Such as, maybe a few different lenses, filters, lighting, backdrops, etc.

Also searching websites for different photo printing and will have to create a name for my business and then make a web page and get all of that stuff in order. Time--that is what it will take. The more I do this stuff, the more I tend to get excited about it.

Now I know that this will take a while till I get things set up the way that I want.

I have had the opportunity to practice taking some photos of people and have to set up a few more photo shoots. Kinda crazy that someone would trust me to take their pictures. LOL

Tomorrow, I am thinking that I am going to go for a ride and look for some areas to do some great shots in the local areas.
