The Three Little Pigs

Another adventure begins, and this one involves raising hogs.  Well, I'm not tending to them, but I drive the teenage son to the barn in order to feed them and develop a relationship with them.  Yes...I said it.  They need to get to know their handler so they will follow along, so powdered sugar donuts are involved in this phase. Ours is named Boss, the other one owned by a sweet teenage girl (who happens to be teenage son's girlfriend) is named Gus, and the shared pig is named Wiggles.  This is sure to inspire many photo shoots!  What is the best way to photograph hogs? :-)

What Am I Committed To?
I finished reading my blogs for the day, which included a new one from Jennifer Loudon:  Savor & Serve the World.  Her question today was, "What are you committed to?"  This made me think...deeply....and I realized that I am floundering with putting my commitments to paper, mainly because I don't know what I am committed to other than the Lord, my husband and children, and my job.  But what am I committed to? What is it that I want to accomplish?  

1.  I am committed to learning Photoshop and Lightroom programs by December 31, 2011.
2.  I am committed to taking a photography class in January to increase my understanding of my camera and its uses.
3.  I am committed to learning photography as a career in order to fulfill my lifelong dream of being a photographer by Summer 2015.

Now...pen to paper...posted's out there and ready to achieve.
