Weekly Sunday Post – Favorite Anime

Jake and his Weekly Sunday Posts are back, and he has challenged bloggers with the theme of Favorite Anime. From Jake’s description, I’ve interpreted favorite cartoon or animation and photographed some of my son’s toys, his Bionicles. After these toys were released in 2001, they were given their own animated series which my son enjoyed watching. The photo below is of one of those Bionicles with others around it.

Bionicles

Ever since my son was around four years old, he has liked building and collecting Lego sets. One unusual Lego series he has collected is this series called Bionicles. For a few years, from 2001 to 2010, Lego made numerous versions of this series and then stopped. My son would watch the Bionicles cartoons, and I would buy him a Bionicle to build every couple of weeks. The Bionicles became a favorite animated series for him. Today, my son still has his Bionicle collection in his room, but he doesn’t watch the animated Bionicle shows anymore. If you’re curious about the series, below is a video I discovered on YouTube with clips from the Bioncles animated series.

Hope After Surgery

Above are some signs of hope in my hospital room after my surgery last Wednesday. The fluffy bear, I named “Fluffy”, was a gift from my husband. The tulips from my mother and father. The book is for school. The IV bags and equipment were hope for physical healing. The sunlight and the food tray also gave me hope.

This post is my entry for Jake’s Weekly Sunday Post. This week’s prompt is “Hope”. Click on the badge below for more information and more entries my other bloggers.


Weekly Sunday Post – People

These photos were taken when my husband and I went on our honeymoon to the Grand Canyon in 1999.  The top photo shows people up close admiring the beauty of the Grand Canyon.  The one below shows people in the distance admiring the Canyon.  I didn’t have a digital camara or iPhone back then, so I scanned both images to create this post.

This week, “People” is the theme for Jake’s Weekly Sunday Post. For more details and entries go to Jake’s blog by clicking the badge below.

Two Challenges (A-Z & Sunday)

March 2001, the birth of our son. New mother, new father, and newborn son. My son’s first picture after birth. The picture was taken by his proud and exhausted Daddy. The “new” is for “N” for Frizztext’s A-Z Archive Photo Challenge. I used the Snapseed iPhone photography app to change the color photo to black and white for Jake’s Weekly Sunday Post.

Weekly Sunday Post – Road

At first I thought of posting a photo of a road, since my family and I like road trips so much. But I decided to do something different and post a photo of something we saw while driving on a road. Below is a photo of a tamale by the side of the road.

On a country road between my house and Alvin, Texas, my family and I saw this very large tamale. I imagine the family that lives in that home sells tamales to passersby.

I enjoy collecting songs of different genres. I literally have a song or group of songs for how I feel at any given time or for different activities like chores, exercise, work,or relaxing. Sometimes if I hear a song I like on a movie or on the radio, I will figure out it’s name and buy it online. I save all these songs on my iPod pictured above. My collection can go anywhere I go.

Weekly Sunday Post: Silence

All I hear when I get to my workplace on Saturday mornings is silence. I work on Saturdays to make up for leaving early for school during the week. Above is a photo of the empty, silent, dark hall of the floor where I work. And below it is the empty parking lot. You can image the silent office. I usually put music on to cheer myself up.

Weekly Sunday Post-Village

In 2008, we visited a village of shops in the the San Antonio, Texas Riverwalk area. Villita means little village in Spanish. My son was seven years old and excited about finding something interesting in one of the shops. He left his mom and dad behind. I snapped this photo of him waiting for us to catch up to him.
