Orange Juice

I've been feeling like I'm getting sick.  In an effort to keep that from happening, i carried around this orange juice and drank it all day.  i think it was gone by about 2:00

is for baker.

I have a homework assignment to find letters in everyday objects and in nature, and spell out our name.  I decided to go just with Baker, since its a lot shorter, and probably easier to find letters for than Melinda.

Sunrise on the way to school

Since jumping ahead an hour, i'm back to walking to class in the dark.  its kind of depressing, but at least i sometimes get shots like this one.

solar charger... kind of

Drew found some of the sidewalk solar light things.... and decided to try and hook them together to make a solar charger for a phone.  i think the last i heard, it wasn't working so well.

Children's book project

for my Children's lit class, we had to write our own children's book.  i decided to do a picture only book using pictures i've taken, and photoshoping (with some not real photoshop that does just as good) a ladybug onto them.  it turned out pretty well.  drew was amazing and helped me with them all.

Frozen Footsteps

I've seen these before, and wondered how they were made.  all the ice and snow around them has melted, and its just the footprint.

bulging backpack

my tuesday afternoons are absolutely hectic (actually, all of tuesdays in general, but tuesday afternoons specifically.  i'm not home from 3-roughly 11)I was amused at just how well this backpack expanded to hold everything.  one 1.5" binder, a laptop, charger, granola, banana, water bottle, and a whole thing of art supplies, and i think a book was thrown in too, for reading if it got slow at work.)

Pizza Toppings

Drew cut these up and they looked so pretty.  yellow, orange, red and green peppers (drew had only had green, so wanted to experiment with the others.) olives and mushrooms.  yum!

As I was walking though the gardens today, I noticed that the rabbits were back.  or, maybe I just hadn't seen them, since i don't typically walk through the gardens in the winter... you are liable to end up soaking wet.
