365 Self-Portrait Project (week 29th)

I am still tired from out last weekend road trip.

We went to Reno and Virginia City and had spent two long nights not in our beds, what means kids as well as mom had not slept very good. At least we’ve learned that our No.1 is not ready for a bed without protecting bars yet.

On Friday we had left the house and on late afternoon we had arrived to Reno.

After we had rested and cooled down a little we went for a walk.

On Saturday we had left Reno to Virginia City.

Where we had walked A LOT!

And where I’d taken tremendous amount of pictures! ๐Ÿ™‚

Most of last Sunday we had spent driving back home. It was an exhausting drive.

I came home with sun/wind burned dry lips that hurt as hell.

at least we had arrived on time to watch last episode of Next Food Network Star ๐Ÿ™‚

While cooking I saw this reflection in the oven window and thinking about Urban Muser’s theme for this month: “reflections”, I had to take this picture. I’d tried many angles, but this is one of the best I ended up with.

This picture is for Bonnie’s them: improbable pairing but I am not sure where the pairing is…

Maybe in the title.

Maybe in a real content of this picture. Is that possible? Me merging with some mechanical parts to improve my skills, my functions.

Hm… Thinking about it I wouldn’t mind have a camera connected to my eyeballs which would take pictures through my eyes whenever I would want to ๐Ÿ™‚ Wouldn’t that be cool?

A few years ago, back in Poland, I had given a lecture to the University of the Third Age. The title of this speech was “Your grandchild might become a cyborg “.ย  Many from the audience had listened to me like to a crazy woman talking, but the thing is that whenever the word cyborg appears people envision Terminator or Cylons, never real people like Cathy Hutchinson (for example)… but I’ve got too philosophical in here…

so improbable, or not: that is the question.

Visiting Nevada – Day One: Reno

Last Friday we had left our place for a road trip. We hadn’t done any serious traveling for a really long time. Leaving the house I was really sceptic about the trip. I wasn’t very thrilled about the vision of us being stuck for hours in the car with two small kids where one of them hates being in the car seat for longer than 30 minutes. Surprisingly enough the drive itself wasn’t that bad.

I have never been to Reno or Las Vegas but from what my husband had told me about those two places I kind of knew what to expect and I didn’t expect a lot.

First of all I had expected that most of our time we will spend in the hotel room dealing with cranky babies, but we didn’t. We’d stayed at Circus Circus. As we had figured it out later it wasn’t the best choice but at least there was plenty to do just inside and we didn’t have to drag the kids to different places looking for interesting things to do. Every hour or so there was a short show for kids. The first one we went to see was so loud I had thought our No. 2 will go deaf, so we left pretty quick.

We met in-laws for early dinner as they were on their own road trip (not for pleasure, though) passing through Nevada. We walked around the main street, took some pictures and enjoyed the refreshing evening breeze. It was a great day and our kids were awesome. They couldn’t behave any better considering the 5 hours in the car and scorching heat we had to deal with on the way up there and when we finally got there.

Short story and plenty of photos from that day in the slideshow below. Enjoy! ๐Ÿ™‚

Tomorrow I’ll try to post second slideshow and a few words about the second day of our trip which was AWESOME!!! If we could I wouldn’t mind staying there forever, opening a small caffe restaurant for tourists, buying some horses and just enjoying my life… not sure if I would be able to survive the weather, though.ย 

Live and Love...Out Loud
