A Random Picture

I was playing around with my camera, and I ended up getting this great picture of our dog, Murphy.

How about you? Have you ever gotten an amazing picture when you're just goofing?

Handwriting Tag and Sourdough Starter

Hannah from Hannah Rose Photography tagged me with this really cool handwriting tag; you answer the tags on paper, and then take a photo of it

1. What is your name/your Blogger name?
2. What is your blog name/URL?
3. Write "The quick brown fox jumps over the lazy dog"
4. Favorite quote
5. Your favorite song
6. Your favorite bands/singers.
7. Anything else you want to say?
8. Tag 3-5 other people.

Here it is

I started my first sourdough starter this week! Here's what it looks like:

It's my second try, and this time it seems to be working right! Anyone have any tips on sourdough bread? Also, don't forget to enter my giveaway if you haven't already!

 I love our dog. He was rescue, and that has made him the most docile dog ever. 

He loves treats, even if it's just a bite of food. 

Sometimes, he looks at me, and I can almost hear him talking! And I'm positive he smiles, too!

Now, the next post is my 100th post. So, no one's answered as to what I should do! Please, comment and give you opinion!

Cold Temperatures and Snow

It is really, really cold!

We got a lot more snow than this, but this was before the main
part of it hit.

Scavenger Hunt Sunday

   Yeah! I loved the themes this week!

1. This is Me
Since I'm not posting faces on my blog, so I decided to do a composite shot
of everything I like. 

2. Resolutions
One of my resolutions this year is to practice my piano more faithfully.

3. Treasured
Again, since I'm not posting faces, and I wanted to post my family, I thought this
summed up my family pretty well. 

4. Innocence 
Our dog is the picture of innocence, when he's not into mischief.

5. Primitive

  Well, it looks like the third watermark won out. 

  Thanks so much to all who voted! 
  Also, I'm probably not going to post for a bit; our computer is somewhat in the progress of crashing, so we're having to back up all our stuff and do a factory restore. Therefore, I've had to deactivate my PSE for the time being, so I can't really edit/watermark any of my photos. Ick! 
  Oh, and I've also added another tab along the top (if you haven't noticed already). I've created a "blog" email, and so I've put it there for questions or suggestions. I'd love to hear from you!
  Anyway, it may be a while, so don't give up on me!
