Every 15th Photo

I was recently reading my friend Luci’s blog and she did a post of every 15th photo on her phone. As I was reading, I was thinking, This is a kinda cool idea. Then, at the end of her post she challenged each of us to make a post of every 15th photo. So, here I am, up for the challenge. Smile


#1 Blue fabric

A piece of fabric that I am thinking about trying to sell on Fabric Swappers. I had gotten it for serving at a wedding, but then I ended up moving to Colorado to teach school and didn’t go to that wedding. I do love the color though!


#2 Super Ninja Throwing Stars

We made these in art class today. Everyone had a lot of fun making them, even those who think art is usually boring. Smile


#3 Silverton Durango Train.

Some of Jen’s family was here over the weekend and we four-wheeled over the mountain to Silverton and had lunch there.


#4 Scoring box from Keyboarding LightUnit.

I was trying to figure out how the scoring works and so took a picture to email to CLP to ask how I was to do it. I think I have it figured out now.


#5 Paper towel curtain.

This is what happens when the teacher hasn’t made curtains yet. The students improvise with a paper towel roll. Winking smile


#6 Buck crossing lane.

I saw this fellow on our lane one night one my way home from youth.


#7 Books!

Some books I ordered off Amazon. Books are my weakness.


#8 S’moratilla.

Our invention when camping this summer. I called it a S’mores Quesadilla, but my cousin Trenton christened it a S’moratilla and the name stuck. Instead of using bread in a mountain pie iron, I used half a tortilla and then filled it with peanut butter, mini marshmallows, and chocolate chips. It was delicious!


# 9 Larita

Darla and I went up to Seney, MI, this summer to help with Vacation Bible School. One day some of us went fishing on Lake Superior. The weather was beautiful and we had a very good day!


#10 Juicy Hamburger

Whenever we needed a quick supper this summer, I usually made hamburgers. They are quick and easy and always delicious!


#11 Breakfast

This was a fairly normal breakfast for me this summer. One or two eggs fried over easy mixed with sautéed fajita mix and sausage. Sometimes I added salsa as well. Very delicious and healthy!


#12 Delicious Salad

I always enjoy a good salad!


#13 Maid of Honor

My best friend (and cousin) got married this summer and I was privileged to be her maid of honor.


#14 Colorado Rockies

A picture I took on my flight from Montrose to Denver this spring.


#15 Man standing on cliff

This spring Jen and I went with Jeremy and Kristina and their family to Moab, UT. This is a pic from some of the four-wheeling we did.


#16 Utah rock

Another picture from four-wheeling.


#17 Four Wheelers

And yet another four-wheeling picture.


#18 Lilacs

These beautiful flowers were brought to me at school this spring.


#19 Daphnee

I had night school with my students this spring and we had a cereal party after their work was done.


#20 On The Border

This spring we stopped in Denver on our way to Cheyenne and of course we had to eat at On The Border. Smile

Well, this post took longer than I thought it would even though it didn’t take much thought. Smile Now you have seen a few slices of my life over the summer. Comment on your favorite picture or share a link to your own post of every 15th picture off your phone.


April Events

Kevin’s are working at building a chicken barn for cage-free, organic laying hens. Well, the big news of the month is that the barn blew down twice!! It is now quite a bit farther along and I believe will stay standing. Smile I guess the third time is the charm. Winking smile I didn’t get pictures the first time it went down, but I did of the second time. They had a rebuilding day after the first time and I have a couple pictures of that also.


A very exciting event was the moving of Evan and Kaylene Beachy to Colorado. The most exciting part is that my cousin Connie came with them a surprised me with a visit!! What a wonderful surprise!

We girls went to Black Canyon Saturday morning. It was an absolutely beautiful day! In the evening we went four-wheeling with Evans and Matts.


And most current is that I am in Nevada visiting Kendra and her family. Smile  We went four-wheeling this morning. It was beautiful!

Sorry I haven’t been keeping up with posting! And now when I am posting it isn’t even current. :/ I doubt I’ll get caught up before the end of the year, but I’ll try to work on catching up and then staying on top of things a bit better. Easy to say now, while I’m not busy with school. Winking smile  Wishing each of you a wonderful New Year!
