Looking at the Sky on Friday


WooHooo! It's Friday! Not only is it the end of the work week for most people, it's also time for the fun and wonderful meme where we spend our time Looking at the Sky on Friday! (Click on the badge to join in the fun!)

I took a lot of similar photos the day I took this. I thought the fields looked so cool with round bales of hay as far as you could see. The clouds added depth to the photo too, I thought. I was driving down a gravel road, and every few feet, I would stop, throw open the vehicle door, and stand with my elbows on the roof of the vehicle so I could keep capturing these fields. I don't own a PS3, so I stand on vehicles and take photos for entertainment. hehe Are you interested in seeing more of these photos? Or, is it one of those - you've seen one, you've seen them all type of photos?

Anyone Find My Misplaced My Energy?

Boy do I wish I had some of the energy these Sulphur Butterflies have! They are always flitting here and flitting there. These two were fighting over the same Clover flower.

When I was diagnosed with the B12 Deficiency, I began to research the symptoms. In many of my readings and many conversations with people who have had B12 shots, I was told the extreme fatigue I've been experiencing would decrease and my energy level would increase. That information really got my hopes up, because I have been absolutely exhausted for so long. The idea of having even a little less fatigue was a very inviting idea. However, after four weekly shots, the fatigue and energy levels remain the same. I had my follow-up appointment this week, and my B12 levels in my blood are now up to a normal level. So, I'm hoping the fatigue is just a result of several stressful and hectic months. I'm needing some more energy!

Heads of Tails *Five Years*

Heads Or Tails

If you click on the graphic above, it will take you to the awesome HoT blog where you can sign up and start participating in this fun and popular meme!

This week's theme is TAILS - "In Five Years" - "This is TAILS so your post needs to be about you specifically. Tell how you think you or your life will be different in five years. Will it be better or worse? Why will it change? How will you do it? Anything is ok as long as it fits the theme. =)"


(c) Misty DawnS

In five years, I hope to have found a better balance. Right now, I have so many things I have to do and/or want to do each day, and too little time to do those things. Therefore, I hope to find a routine and balance which will allow me to comfortably fit both the required and the desired actions into my schedule.

Also, of course, I hope in five years to have gained more knowledge and experience in digital photography to be able to actually earn a freelance income through photography. I'm not asking to be able to have photography as my full time job (although that would be a dream come true); I would just like to be able to confidently say I am a successful freelance photographer.

Other than that, I really don't expect or want too much to be different.

Labradoodles and Designer Dogs

Anyone who knows me knows that I'm a dog addict. Seriously - I've never met a dog I didn't like. Anyone who doesn't know me will probably get a little hint just by reading the title of my blog. I have three Border Collies, and they are my 'kids'. They truly own my heart, and they truly keep me sane. No matter how hard of a day I'm having, when I see my 'kids' come running to see me, my heart melts and my worries take a back burner.

My addiction doesn't just stop with Border Collies though. I've had mixed breeds, a Golden Retriever, a Great Pyrenees, a Boston Terrier, and several different dogs when I was growing up. There are many, many breeds of dogs which I would be thrilled to bring into my family. In fact, one of my dreams is to run a dog rescue. Since that's not a profitable dream, I'm meeting some resistance on that one. hehe

When I first started hearing about dogs people were referring to as "designer dogs", I was a bit concerned and skeptical. My concerns and skepticism no longer exist though, because I've met several people who have one of the various 'designer dog' breeds and/or have knowledge and experience to share with me.

The list of 'designer dogs' continues to grow. These dogs are usually (but not always) Poodle crosses, meaning it's either a Standard or Miniature Poodle crossed with another breed of dog. Some of the most popular are Labradoodles (Labrador X Poodle), Golden Doodles (Golden Retriever X Poodle), Puggles (Pug X Beagle), Schnoodles (Miniature Schnauzer X Poodle, and the Maltipoo (Maltese X Poodle).

One of the crosses I've heard a lot about is the Labradoodle. There are actually two types of Labradoodle. There are the Labrador and Poodle crosses. However, there is also the Australian Labradoodle, which was created by an Australian breeding team in an attempt to create a winning show dog breed. The Australian Labradoodle is made up of six different breeds of dogs.

As I said, our Labradoodles (or the designer dog creation of Labradoodles) are a cross between the Labrador Retriever and the Standard Poodle. However, this breed has been around for long enough now that it has become its own breed and is not considered a cross any longer.

I know some people who have Labradoodles, and they say they are excellent dogs. One common thing I've heard is that these dogs are very intelligent and easy to train. Another great thing is that their coats are non-allergic. So, someone with allergies could still have a dog as a companion.

So, my opinion of designer dogs has come a long way, especially when I hear firsthand experience promoting these dogs. Do you have any experience with these dogs? I'd love to hear what you have to say.

Macro Monday *Mystery Ball Flower*



(c) Misty DawnS

I have absolutely no idea what this flower/plant is, but it is really cool looking. It's also a really great photography subject, as you can see. In fact, my Macro Monday posts on both of my blogs are flowers which I don't know the name of, yet they make really neat photo subjects. Both of the flowers in my posts today grow back by my pond, in the area where we planted our blackberry and raspberry bushes. Nope, we don't have any berries yet, but we have flowers! hehe

Organizational Leadership

As many of you know, I attend college online. I absolutely LOVE the opportunity to get a degree online. Without the opportunity to attend online college, I wouldn't have the time or ability to go back to school to gain extra knowledge and obtain a degree.

Therefore, I take note of the various online colleges and online degrees available. One online degree available is the Organizational development degree through Gonzaga Online College. This degree program goes beyond a traditional business degree. It brings teachings from social science, business, communications, and arts together to create a graduate who is ready to become a leading professional in any organization of any field. For these reasons, the Organizational Leadership Masters Degree is broader than the Organizational Development Degree, and this provides for more professional credentials and broader career paths.

If you are like me, and don't think you have time to go back to school, yet you need to broaden your horizons and arm yourself with the skills to advance, you may seriously want to research online degrees. It may give you the opportunities you didn't think were available to you.

Camera-Critters #68


I apologize I'm late with my post this week, but you should still feel special, because I'm making this post before I've even had my first cup of coffee. Yes, that is dedication. So... ummm please ignore any typos or even bundles of words which make no sense... I'm not 'alive' yet because I haven't had my coffee. ;-)

After an uneventful walk the other day, I was returning home when I spotted this 'leaf'. However, last time I checked, leaves hang from trees and don't hang from grass.

(c) Misty DawnS

Ohhhhh Silly me. That's not a leaf!
It's a Question Mark butterfly.
It really should turn around,
it's gonna get a headache!

I imagine they will cut this tree down someday, since it is dead. However, it has been one of my favorite trees to photograph since I moved here. I think it's really great in the foreground of my sunset photos.

Yesterday, I was home sick the a stomach bug. Today, I'm back to work... still not feeling so great, but I don't want to use up all my sick time, especially since I'm using a sick day on Tuesday to go to the dentist. I'm rather nervous about it, especially since I already know I have at least one cavity. I've been going to the same dentist since I started getting teeth... now I have to change? *sigh* It's tough growing up ;-)

Tickled Pink

(c) Misty DawnS
My mother-in-law got me this Butterfly Bush as a birthday gift. When it started blooming, I was so excited, because I wasn't sure if it would bloom this year or wait until next year. It's quite pretty, don't ya think? I love the colors and the pretty little orange centers. So, I just had to share it with you. Cuz that's how I am. I'd even share with you if I found the biggest breakthrough in diet pills. Yep, you're my buds (pardon the pun). ;-)
On another note, I've decided it's time to set some goals for myself and start taking some steps toward my dreams. I mean, you can't really reach them if you don't take steps to reach FOR them... right? OK, maybe that didn't make any sense, but you get the idea. ;-)

Heads or Tails *Wear*

Heads Or Tails

If you click on the graphic above, it will take you to the awesome HoT blog where you can sign up and start participating in this fun and popular meme!

This week's theme is HEADS - "Wear" or TAILS - "Where". I've decided to use "Wear". I want to tell you about one of my favorite television shows - What Not To Wear. Why is this one of my favorite shows? Well I'll tell you. I have absolutely no fashion sense, and now that I'm in a more professional employment position, I need to dress the part. This would be the reason our DVR is set to record each and every single episode of What Not To Wear.

I also have a little addiction of seeing the 'reveals'. That's when the participant comes out in the outfits that he or she learned how to put together after learning from the style gurus, Stacy London and Clinton Kelly. Ohhhhh and the hair and makeup makeover is one of the best parts of the show too. I just love the beautiful Carmindy, who is the show's makeup artist. I would be absolutely over the moon just to have the show's stylists do my hair and makeup!

The only thing I don't like about the show is that you receive $5,000 for a new wardrobe, and then you go to New York City to spend that $5,000. Let me tell ya, I could get a LOT of clothes with $5,000, but not at the places they go to on the show. Regardless of that, I love the show, and it has become one of those guilty pleasure addictions for me. hehe It's funny, because I used to have people suggest the show to me, and I would think... nah, I wouldn't like a show like that. Guess I was proven wrong!

SEO Consulting

Why did you start a blog? My guess is that you started your blog because you have something to say or talents to show. Obviously, you need readers in order to have that 'something' heard or those talents seen. Besides, we all know that we love comments, especially those comments which truly express an interest or appreciation about what we posted. Time for my next question - Do you know anything about SEO? SEO stands for search engine optimization, and it is exactly what you need if you want to ensure that your blog is read or your website it viewed. Search engine optimization is useful for bloggers, but it is necessary for those who start websites because they have a product or service to sell. This is why hiring an SEO consultant is important, especially if you are starting your website with the intent of using it to earn an income.

If I have just caught your interest, you can click on seo nyc to read the "about me" page of Shimon Sandler. Shimon is an experienced and knowledgeable seo consultant, which you will discover as you read about him and view his website. His website if very well laid out and full of useful and interesting information. I especially like (and appreciate) the "Tools" section he provides, which is full of great tools for search engine optimization of your site.

Some of us aren't interested in 'going the extra mile' to get readers or viewers to our sites. However, others need to increase our viewership, because our sites are more than just a hobby, they're an income source. If your site falls in the latter category, then you may possibly want to research seo consulting. It may give you that extra edge that you need to get your products or services noticed.

Macro Monday *Female Dancer*



(c)Misty DawnS

This damselfly is called a Female Dancer (I'm not sure exactly which Dancer species). I discovered this beauty in Ohio while on one of my walks with my dad and Matouk. I just love the turquoise color of this damselfly. You would think she could have been considerate and landed on a beautiful flower or something, so the composition of the photo would be better. But, oh no, she decides to play in the dirt instead. Wait a minute... that sound kinda like me. Playing in the dirt is fun stuff. OK, I can totally relate to her now. *grin*

Camera-Critters #67



(c) Misty DawnS

It had been a rough few days for me emotionally, and Hubs was wore out from working on roofs and constructing steel buildings. So, of course, I needed to get out and have some time to reflect...

I was walking down the road, and looked up ahead and saw a coon family walking along the side of the road. So, I took a picture of them, just for the heck of it, but they were way ahead of me. I continued to watch them, and saw them go off into the grass. So, when I got to that spot, I looked, but didn't see any coons. When I turned to continue on my walk, I saw them up ahead again, walking along the side of the road again. Then I saw them go off the road again. I know the area quite well, and I knew that where they went off the road, they would either be playing in some water or playing in the tree... So, I took off sprinting down the road (Yes, I sprint for photos hehe). When I got to the spot, I watched the family playing in the tree, and, as you can see, three of the little ones decided to pose for me. I call them "The Three Amigos", and I must say that this is the best family portrait I've ever taken. hehe

Looking at the Sky on Friday *Misty Dawn*


WooHooo! It's Friday! Not only is it the end of the work week for most people, it's also time for the fun and wonderful meme where we spend our time Looking at the Sky on Friday! (Click on the badge to join in the fun!)

Normally, when I wake up in the morning during the week, I drag myself out of bed and stumble to the shower while still half asleep. The other morning, though, my alarm went off... I hit snooze. My alarm went off again... I hit snooze again. My alarm went off again... do you see a pattern here? FINALLY, I had no choice but to drag myself out of bed and get ready for work. That morning, however, as I stumbled through the house to get to the shower, the scene showing through the window on my door caught my attention. I rubbed my eyes, stared at the beauty, and realized I needed to photograph this. So, at about 6 am, I was standing on my porch taking photos (when I should have been in the shower hehe).

Hey, can ya blame me? This is the true definition of my namesake - a "Misty Dawn". OK, OK, so maybe it's more a "Foggy Dawn", but that's not my name, so we're sticking with Misty Dawn!

Bikes & Leather Go Together

One of my favorite things to do with my dad, besides fishing... oh, and besides walking with the wolf, is riding with him on his motorcycle. He has a big, beautiful Harley, and he even got a special back rest for me for when I ride with him. Let me tell ya - it's so comfortable, it's like riding your couch down the road.

Well, a few weeks ago, I came home from work and there was a surprise package waiting on my porch. For the life of me, I couldn't figure out what it could be. I saw that it was from my dad, but I had no idea what was in the box. When I opened it, I discovered the most beautiful leather jacket I had ever seen. It has bead work, fringe, and boning on it. I love it, because I can wear it anytime. I took it with me when I went to visit Dad, and I wore it when we rode the motorcycle. From what I was told, it fit me perfectly. My cousin's wife told me that my dad and I looked so cool together on the motorcycle, wearing our motorcycle jackets and matching sunglasses.

My husband has been looking for a particular style of jacket. I've been searching for places which carry the jacket he likes, so I can get it for him, eventually (when we have more money). In my search, I found a website called LeatherUp.com. They have a wonderful selection of everything you would wear when riding your motorcycle, including boots, motorcycle helmets, chaps, vests, and jackets.

What is wonderful about LeatherUp is their prices are fantastic! Honestly, very affordable, especially when you are talking about leather items! Also, I love the fact that their jackets aren't limited to just 'motorcycle jackets'. They have a wide variety of beautiful women's jackets. For the men, they, of course, have mens leather jackets, but they also have varsity and bomber jackets. I'm very impressed with the selection and the price of items on this website. Hubs and I will definitely have to sit down and look through this site together.

Just Thinkin'

(c) Misty DawnS

I just wanted to update everyone. Both my BFF and my father-in-law made it through surgery without complications. My father-in-law was having some trouble controlling the pain, but I think they have that under control now. He is at the hospital which is right next door to where I work, so I will walk over and see him during my lunch break.

When I went over to see him yesterday, I walked in the room, and he looked at me and said, "Man, you've had a rough few months!" I replied, "YOU'RE the one in the hospital bed, and you're telling ME about how rough I've had it?" We both laughed.

I strongly believe that things are going to start going up for me. I have a lot of opportunities available to me right now. I just need to reach out and grab them and not let them pass by me. Sometimes, it's difficult though, to grab an opportunity and initiate change. You tend to get comfortable with how things are, because you know what to expect, and change and the unknown can be scary... even when the opportunity could be great. *sigh* Don't worry - I'll give myself a pep talk ;-)

Track the Bugs

Many of my online friends are very talented at webdesign. I'm always in awe of their talents and knowledge of creating their own websites and understanding of scripts and software, such as wiki software. I hope to, some day, be knowledgeable in webdesign, as well. In fact, I'm currently taking online college courses to obtain my webdesign certification.

One thing I have learned is that things happen. There will most generally be problems which rear their heads and will need to be resolved. This is why any true web developer needs to keep current with and have methods for issue tracking.

Speaking of problems, we all know about bugs. No, I'm not talking about the bugs I photograph. ;-) I'm referring to those wonderful viruses with which our computers can become infected. However, this isn't just limited to your computer. You websites can get bugs too! You can get infected from corrupt programs, scripts, e-mails, or even hackers. So, of course, having some bug tracking software in place is pretty much a must have.

A company called Atlassian have all three of these software tools available at one website. I have not used these tools, as I do not have the knowledge and understanding yet. However, I believe that these three types of tools would be beneficial to everyone from individual website owners to forums to corporations. Everyone needs to track their bugs! Right? ;-)

Prayers and Positive Thoughts

(c) Misty DawnS

I dedicate this image, which I call "Portrait of Susan" (hehe) to my BFF (we've been best friends since grade school) and my father-in-law (he's a very, very special person). They are both having surgery today.

My father-in-law fell last year and unknowingly broke his hip. So, he has been walking around on a broken hip all this time! I can't even imagine!

My BFF is having a hysterectomy in order to resolve some other problems she has been enduring. I SO wish I were there with her, holding her hand! Unfortunately, I can't hold her hand from 750 miles away... but I can be with her in thoughts, spirit, prayers, and heart.

Sharing, Learning, and Savings with Reloading

When I was young, one of my favorite things to do with my dad was help him with his reloading. You see, my dad would reload his own shells for his guns. I learned a lot from him about guns and reloading, and I felt important because I was really helping him. When I married my husband, and my dad learned that he is also interested in reloading, they began sharing reloading manuals.

Eventually, my husband is going to set up his own reloading area in our home. So, I look forward to helping him with his reloading too. He has already purchased some of the items he needs, like some of the reloading dies for the shells he will be reloading.

However, I'm sure we will need to find a place to use on a regular basis when we need to order more reloading supplies, such as powder, shells, etc. So, I found the website for Sinclair International, and I'm going to have Hubs take a look.

At Sinclair International, you can order from the website, or you can also request a catalog. From what I have seen on their website, they offer a very extensive amount of reloading equipment, supplies, and accessories. They even have DVD's and videos, in addition to their manuals and reference books. Even if you are new to the reloading experience, you can learn. Everyone has to start somewhere!

If you are a hunter, target shooter, or gun collector, you will find that not only is reloading interesting, rewarding, and enjoyable... it will also save you money. If your spouse also enjoys similar things, you may even find it to be something you share and enjoy doing together. Or, it would be a wonderful experience for you to share with your child. I know I'm a female, but looking through the numerous supplies offered by Sinclair International brought back some wonderful memories of time spent with my dad.

On another note, my aunt gave up the battle with Pancreatic Cancer yesterday. She will be greatly missed by all of us who loved her.

I will be unable to attend her services as I had planned. I feel like I'm letting her and the family down. I am thankful though that I got to see her and tell her that I love her.

Looking at the Sky on Friday & a Funny Story


WooHooo! It's Friday! Not only is it the end of the work week for most people, it's also time for the fun and wonderful meme where we spend our time Looking at the Sky on Friday! (Click on the badge to join in the fun!)

(c) Misty DawnS

I took this photo on the way back from the 3 1/2 mile walk that Dad, Matouk, and I took one day. The skies kept teasing us with the threat of rain, but it was just a threat, as it didn't rain on us at all. This particular walk was probably one of my favorite parts of the entire visit. I just had a great time taking photos and hanging out with Dad and Touk.

Oh - let me tell you a funny story. While on a walk prior to my arrival, Dad and Touk found this Manny the Hairy Mammoth figurine lying in the trail. Manny is a character in the hilarious Ice Age movies. Anyway, this figurine talked when you would move its head to the side. If you moved it to one side, it exclaimed "Whoa!", and when its head was moved to the other side, it would say "I can hear with these things, ya know!". One morning, Dad decided to clean off a table in his kitchen, and he decided to throw the Manny figurine in the trash. That night, we were on the phone with my dad's friend. He said something, and all of a sudden, from the trash can, we hear "WHOA!". We just looked at each other. Then, a little bit later, the person on the phone said something like, "That's what I heard." and from the trash we hear, "I can hear with these things, ya know." Dad and I couldn't help ourselves, we burst out laughing. From that point on, the figurine in the trash was possessed and throughout the evening/night would all of a sudden start talking. Finally, Dad said, since he doesn't have NJ trash removal, "I'm taking this trash outside!" The next day, I started giggling. Dad asked what I was giggling about, and I responded, I wonder what your trash removal guy thought when he threw that bag in the truck and heard, "Whoa! I can hear with these things, ya know!" At this point, Dad and I were both cracking up laughing. Maybe you just had to be there, but it was hilarious!

Is There a Pearl in This Oyster?

(c) Misty DawnS

You may think the title is strange, but this is actually an abstract macro photo of what is called an Oyster Plant. My dad kept telling me about this awesome looking plant and was hoping that one would still be intact so I could photograph it. Sure enough, Dad's hoping paid off, and we found this Oyster Plant alongside the drive to one of the spots we were going to take Touk walking that day. When it goes to seed, as it is in the photo, it reminds you of a dandelion, but it is HUGE... WAY bigger than a dandelion. I really had a fun time photographing this plant. In fact, we even picked one and took it home with us. I was really surprised because it was still intact even when I left Ohio.

I enjoyed and appreciated this plant so much, that I really want to do some research to see if I could raise it here at home. Then I could take macro shots to my heart's delight ;-) Yes, my dad, the wolf, and I share an extreme love and appreciation for nature. So, when I come home, rather than browsing wholesale tvs, I desire to go shopping for things such as flowers, plants, bird baths, and feeders. I'm sure that doesn't really surprise you.

Yes, I'll prepare you now... I'm sure you will be inundated with photos from my trip. Seriously... would you expect anything else???

Heads or Tails *Spin*

Heads Or Tails

If you click on the graphic above, it will take you to the awesome HoT blog where you can sign up and start participating in this fun and popular meme!

This week's theme is HEADS - "Spin"


(c) Misty DawnS

Now, I don't want to make your head spin from joy and excitement, but... I'm BAAAAAACK!

I had a wonderful trip and a fantastic time visiting my family... especially spending time with Dad. We went for lots of walks with the wolf, went fishing, visited friends and family, took a canoe ride (with the wolf too), and talked and talked and talked. We never talked about acne, but I think we talked about everything else. hehe

Naturally, I'm already missing them like crazy - so much so that I'm already planning my next trip. hehe

I'm still trying to get caught up on a lot of things... there are so many things that my head is spinning... which brings me to the above photo. This was originally an innocent and normal photo of a pretty purple wildflower, until I used the FX option at Big Huge Labs. Now, I kind of like how it looks a bit like a piece of art. Big Huge Labs is loads of fun and offers many different things for you to do with your photos. You should check it out... but I'm warning you - it becomes addicting!
