I just finished a 50,132 word novel! (and photography)

GUYS!  I did it.  Can you believe it?  Okay, I actually spent lots of nights up late typing, but I still did it.  And I did before midnight on November the thirtieth!  Boom.  I just accomplished NaNoWriMo, even though I’m not doing it. xD  Yep, I started November first and I finished today, November thirtieth.

Okay, so I just went around bragging to you all, but I thought you’d like to know since I already bragged about the book while it was in process.

Today is not going to be a writing post, I just had to add that.  It’s going to be a three in one post, but mostly my photography.  I haven’t done a photography post in forever!  So, let’s move on.

We’re going in dates taken, so from oldest to youngest photos.


The leaves where just changing, and I couldn’t wait to take a photo of them.  Don’t you like the sunlight?


More leaves and sunshine!


Little Quincy berries!  Aren’t they cute?


A red mushroom.  It’s so bright in all the dead grass.  And its holding water!  Can’t you just imagine a little fairy dipping it’s hand into it to drink?  No?  Oh, well then never mind.



Guys, I don’t know what kind of flowers these are, but they are the haven for honey bees! If I go outside right now, I’ll find one on that flower.  It’s strange.


I love the ruggedness of this picture.  The barbed wire, the dried flowers, and everything else just makes it perfect.


So many different colors!  I love barns.  *happy sigh*

So pretty and happy!


Sometimes you have that annoying twig in life.

So, let me explain the following pictures.  We went to a butterfly sanctuary?  I don’t know what you would call it, but needless to say it’s like a greenhouse that feels like the tropics.  To be honest, I and my camera were not made to live in that kind of humid heat, so the result was these really cloudy pictures.


I love this one!  It’s so cool!




Which butterfly picture was your favorite?  Do you like butterflies?

My favorite leaf picture!

Camellias are one of my favorite flowers.  All the camellias are in bloom right now.  They’re so pretty, you could eat them.



I got a bit carried away with the reflection of the trees on the water.  Here are three out of a dozen I took.

I love the orange!
All those colors!  The blue is so brilliant.
Hehe!  You can see me!

This next one is so cool!  It’s like a magical pathway or something less awesome.


This one beneath here looks like a magic beam is coming out of the flower xD 😉

It looks magical!

And lastly another Camellia!


Oh, and this picture also.  Hmm, wonder who that girl is?? 😉 ;p



And now for the promised third part of this post!  How many of you out their enjoy ornament/gift exchanges?  A lot?  Am I seeing some hands raised?  No.  Well, if you do, I’m participating in a secret sister gift exchange, so if you want to learn more, contact me.

If anything seems odd about this post, tribute it to my staying up to midnight last night.  The story had to be finished! xD

      Miss ‘Lizbeth!! Ahem. *Cough* You asked me a question about something in your last letter and *Mmph* I can’t tell you what it is because of privacy reasons, but I didn’t know what it looked like, and there it is, up there ^^^ That’s what it looks like. Don’t say what I’m talking about, it’ll ruin the whole point of this. Amie knows too.

      I love the pictures! ‘Specially the water ones! I’ve been to a butterfly place once too! ❤
