Photo A Day Week 8

Day 47 - From where I stand
It looks cold out there.

Day 48 - Routine
My daily routine was messed up because Michael was working at home.

Day 49 - Bedside
I was staying in a hotel this day and the bedside isn't very interesting.

Day 50 - Fresh

Day 51 - This is so me

Day 52 - Matching
Shylee's matching hat, scarf, and gloves

Day 53 - Macro
My favorite model, again.

It was so nice to go spend time with my girls and then bring Shylee home for the weekend.  I could have done without the below zero wind chill, but it is still February after all!

Have a fabulous week!

It was so so cold this last week and this coming week promises to be just as cold but with snow.  At least it's not as bad here as it is in Boston.  See, there's always something to be thankful for!

Day 40 - Energy

Day 41 - This inspires me
The fabric, books, magazines, colors.  Inspires me every time I walk in this room.

Day 42 - On the wall
Our house was built in 1976.  The chimney has a bicentennial brick on the outside and also one on the inside under the mantle.  I liked it because I graduated from high school that year!

Day 43 - Pointy
My straight pins.

Day 44 - Temptation
So very tempting.

Day 45 - Love

Day 46 - Spot
I spotted a cardinal and blue jay in the back yard at the same time.

I hope your week is off to a good start.  I'm looking forward to seeing my girls and maybe spending some time in the sewing room.  What will you be doing this week?

244.  longer days
245.  learning to live in the moment
246. all it's different forms
247.  observing the angst and awkwardness of teenagers before a Valentine's dance and being                relieved that I made it through my teens and my kids' teens         
248.  discovering new facts about Michael's childhood

Photo A Day Week 6

I got behind this week and had to play catch up in one day...not fun!  Life gets in the way sometimes and you do what you have to do.  It will probably happen again before the year is over!

Day 33 - Mail
This was happy mail.  One of two orders I placed on Etsy and it came just in time for this prompt.

Day 34 - Water
I don't know how many pictures I took of a water splash that didn't turn out.  I finally just took this up close shot of water in a fancy glass.

Day 35 - Reward
My reward for walking past the bakery and candy aisle without buying something.

Day 36 - Something blue
Last summer I got new glasses.  I didn't pay attention to what brand or designer they were, I just liked the way they looked.  When I went back to pick them up and they pulled the Tiffany blue box out of the tray I was a little surprised.  By the time they showed me the glasses case, pouch, cleaning cloth, and certificate of authenticity, I was laughing.  It's probably the only thing I will ever own from Tiffany's!

Day 37 - Makes me smile
Annie makes me smile every day...even when she turns away from the camera.

Day 38 - Stripes
In my dining room.

Day 39 - In my bag
There is nothing exciting in my bag.  But it's colorful and makes me happy!

I hope you have a good week.

Photo A Day Week 5

It was so cold last week so I stayed in as much as possible.  I have such a hard time getting warm when I'm cold to the bone.

Day 26 - Three things
Three teacups and saucers in front of the Christmas tree so I could get the bokeh effect.  Michael gets in no hurry to put away the tree.

Day 27 - Morning
Every single morning, the very first thing I do is check my blood sugar level.  My little kit includes a glucose meter, lancets, lancing device, and test strips.  It goes with me everywhere I go.

Day 28 - Strange
I think it's strange that a weed can still grow in 20 degree weather.

Day 29 - Winter/summer
We got a dusting of snow and I was okay with that.

Day 30 - Fave food
Chocolate, of course...but only one a day!

Day 31 - On top
The Longaberger baskets on top of a cabinet in the kitchen.  I used to sell the baskets at home parties.

Day 32 - On my plate
Apple pie and ice cream on Michael's plate.

I hope you have a great week!
