More New 52 posts from me – feels good to catch up on the blogging of these new things I’ve been trying!
Week 14 Landscape in Albuquerque
I’ve been to Albuquerque, New Mexico many times to visit my parents, but on this particular trip I played around with landscape photography thanks to some new scenic spots my Mom shared with us.
Week 15 Humanitarian Kits for Japan
An iPhone photo in Target of 20 toothbrushes + 20 combs that I bought to donate for humanitarian kits to be sent to the people of Japan. I got together with about 40 other women from my neighborhood and we put these into kits that also contained toothpaste, hand towels, and soap. It’s not much compared to what the needs are in emergency situations, but it felt good to do something and to help in some small way.
Week 16 Electroplating
Electroplating is not something I would have thought of to add to my “new things to try” list, but it’s something I had to do with my son for his online Chemistry class so I decided to count it. As someone who never took Chemistry in high school or college (that’s why I was an English major!) I’ve been impressed with myself for actually surviving this year of homeschooling my son while he’s been taking Chemistry. I have to give him almost all of the credit though because he’s been smart enough to figure it out even when it makes no sense to me.
For this lab we transferred copper from a copper strip to a quarter and also to non-galvanized nail. Pretty neat!
If I wasn’t doing this New52 challenge, I would have probably not documented any of these experiences. I’m so glad I am participating!
