An Apple

The Apple

The Apple

“The camera is an instrument that teaches people how to see without a camera.” Dorothea Lange

As Eric and walked through the Behavioral Science Building on our way for coffee I noticed this apple sitting on the desk of a couple young girls. I found it intriguing so I asked if I could take a photo and was given permission. I took only one as I was in a hurry and didn’t want to disturb the two girls, after all finals are next week. I was even more intrigued by the image once I loaded it on my computer. Those are are not teeth marks but she seems to have used some tool like a scoop. Eric, as are many who do not have a camera hanging around their neck, commented how he would not have noticed the apple.

Free Hersheys

Hersheys Candy

Hersheys Candy

As I walked up to get on the bus I noticed these Hershey candy bars laid out on the rock bench. Were they free? No one was around. I’m well aware that placing chocolate out in the open is a temptation for many people, myself included! But this scene was even more tempting because it was not just a single candy bar but motherload of eight. Now being a compulsive Hersheys candy bar thief I quickly checked around for any eyewitnesses. Seeing no one around I reached for one, knowing very well I was about to take two or more.
However, something stopped me from taking them. The instant I touched them I began to laugh at the situation. What stopped me and caused me to laugh was discovering they were cleverly “glued” to the rock bench. I took this image then looked to see if I was secretly being watched and quickly got on the bus. I’m still laughing at myself.

Just a Baby

A Baby Snowman

A Baby Snowman

I encountered this 6 inch tall snowman last week at campus. Wonder what his name should be and where’s his/her hat?

Have a great week!

Bicyclist on a cold morning near campus

Bicyclist on a cold morning near campus

Walked to a coffeehouse last week to meet a friend for a cup of coffee and their breakfast enchiladas. 🙂 The temperature was somewhere between 25 and 30 degrees  (F). I am still surprised how many people in Fort Collins ride bicycles in all sorts of weather. They just gear up for whatever nature brings on. I’m actually envious of their commitment to riding.

They actually make a pretty good pizza. I haven’t tried the subs but they look awesome.

Snow Shovels

Bright Colored Snow Shovels

Bright Colored Snow Shovels

This past week they were giving away snow shovels on campus. No way were you going to misplace his shovel because they were bright orange shovels. I did not ask why but watched students carrying them around campus and on the buses. Anyway, it came at the best time as snow is predicted to arrive tonight and into tomorrow. So, in anticipation of the cold and snow I put on a crock pot of vegetable soup. Hope everyone is enjoying the weekend and praying you have a great week.
