I find it hard to brainstorm when I have a headache. The cause: math and tedious work on Excel spreadsheets. Just when I get cocky about learning how to do taxes, I have to deal with more numbers. My head hurts just thinking about it.
Sitting in front of a glaring computer screen doesn’t help the burning in my eyes. This morning as I was preparing for a long day at work, I remember telling myself not to worry about the blog. I’ll do it right after dinner.
So then I went to the movies. I mean, what else was I going to do during matinee pricing time with the help of a gift card? Geostorm looked awesome, it had epic storms and Gerard Butler! Honestly, I would’ve liked it better if it had more storms.
Here I am now, wanting to catch up on my TV shows or get back to a 500 page book I’m reading. But I feel obligated to write, so here’s what’s on my mind.
Five Favorite Fall Things to Photograph
1. Trees and Changing Leafs
I love an opportunity to sneak in a picture of this handsome dog into this blog. Look at him, Chauncey the Corgi is stunning. Yes, he’s wearing a pumpkin costume, it’s earned him a few “accidental” dropped hot dogs. I love watching the leaves change color during this time of the year, and they make this corgi look stunning.
2. Pumpkins and Gourds
Carved pumpkins are great as long as I don’t have to deal with the slimy innards. I love how pretty the little pumpkins and gourds look.
3. Coffee and Hot Chocolate
Hot beverages always taste best during the colder months. Surprisingly, I can’t find a good picture on my computer. I’ll have to fix that.
4. Doughnuts and Cider
If you can splurge on $8 a gallon, fresh cider is the best thing next to fresh doughnuts.
5. Fall Decorations
I prefer fall decorations over Halloween decorations. They’re much prettier and showcase everything that is beautiful about the season. I’m particularly proud of this wreath I made last year, hot glue gun burns and all.
