December 4: Joyous

So, I was wracking my brain on the way home from work today, trying to figure out what in the world to take a picture to demonstrate joyous. I mean don’t get me wrong, I am super excited about all the snow we are getting. And that is something to be joyous about. The season itself is something to be joyous about. It is a celebration of the birth of Christ! But I really was just drawing a blank on how to photograph joyous.

I then got home and we are dog sitting another husky right now, so that means two huskies in the house. They needed to go potty right away. They did their business right away and then started going crazy in the snow. Huskies love snow, I have come to find out. Like really love snow! As I am watching them bolting around the yard, I realize what demonstrates joyous better than two huskies and their love for snow?!?!! So, I ran inside and grabbed my camera. I think I got a few decent shots!

You can just see the half crazed looks in their eyes. LOL!

Snow makes huskies super playful! 🙂
After got a little worn down, they stopped long enough for me to grab a couple of glamour shots. 😛

Halo got in the way a little bit on this one, but I just love it anyway.

Halo is awesome! He has one blue eye and one brown eye and apparently loves to eat snow! Lol!

See ya!

Book Review: The $100 Startup

Just finished reading The $100 Startup by Chris Guillebeau. I really need to stop reading all of these start up books. They say alot of the same stuffs. If I am really going to start something, I should just do it and stop reading and procrastinating. Right? Right. Anyway, Chris is super engaging and it was a great read!

Likes: It was a quick read. (When I found time to actually read it.) It was a very engaging read. He had some great tips and advice. He shared stories from real people. Real failures and successes. It was encouraging without being too peppy or anything. Haha. It was very practical. Loved it.

Dislikes: It was a lot of what I had read before. If you are just now going into reading about starting your own business, then start with this one. If not, he says a lot of the same things I have been reading already.

Overall, it was a really great read. He was super practical and super knowledgeable. Start at this book before you read others. There you go!

Sorry, I’m feeling short and to the point right now. My mind is in a billion different places.
July of 2013 is coming to an end. That means this challenge is coming to an end and I have failed miserably. Life just sometimes gets the best of you. I will hopefully have one more book to add before the end of the challenge but obviously not finishing the whole thing. I will read all of the books and keep you updated on when this challenge is actually complete. I still have yet to even finish the list. How terrible am I at keep this challenge?!

I have some short challenges on my to do list on pinterest and so I think I will try a few short ones and then maybe try a 52 weeks challenge again. If I can’t finish something the first time, I tend to be restless until I actually do finish it so it will happen at some point.  But anyway, I got a new camera and so it is only fitting that for the month of August, I am going to do a picture challenge that I found on pinterest. Stay tuned for more challenge awesomeness!

See ya!
