Post 1000: 270/365
1000 days ago I started this blog. I’ve fallen behind (more and more frequently) but I’m still posting a photo for each day of the year. Maybe I’ll make it to 2,000, maybe not. But for now I’m pretty happy to have made it this far.
And for your viewing pleasure, here’s a visual summary of the last 999 days. Happy scrolling…
Carpet in the Hotel Dupont.
My son made this tonight when I told him today was the 100th day of doing my blog.
Blowing out Daddy’s birthday candles.
I love these little squishy legs!
My office is in a converted chapel that was originally built in 1887 and isn’t very well insulated. Incredible Heat Machine to the rescue.
I think he may need a belt.
I used http://www.gasbuddy.com
to find out if any local gas stations were selling their mid-grade octane for $3.65. Luckily one was so I made a lunchtime trip in order to get this photo.
As you can see, my mom loves frosting.
At the exit from a parking garage downtown.
All of the trophies were made out of Duplos.
On top of the world.
I find this both wonderful and extremely distracting when driving into Philly.
We went out and bought my daughter some snow boots since all she had were these rain boots. She didn’t seem to mind, though.
The Pep Boys… Manny, Moe and Jack
Cicada shell from the side.
I don’t know why, but I still love getting these back to school supply lists from the teacher.
I love the old 1970s fonts
My son achieved the new “Boat Float” record at Hagley Museum’s Invention Convention – 305 marbles (94 more than the previous record of 211!)
Unfortunately my son had already returned his shoes when I took this photo so his are missing from the group.
What is the stuff in the center of these? Frosting?
I’m loving this project so far!
The woman in white.
Notice how everyone has a piece of cake…
The clouds were incredible looking.
I love this little guy!
I wish I could have seen the full color version!
My bedside table and view out the window.
I have a thing for reflection photos. I seem to take a lot of them.
I love how you can see my kids and me reflection.
Maybe it’s the blue eyes?
He read the entire book in one night… while at a cub scout event.
Somehow my son always seems to end up buying Park Place and winning the game.
Thank goodness for free e-filing.
Something about this reminds me of a David Lynch movie.
Holding her new Duplo Cinderella.
The water fountain in the school where my son has his cub scout meetings (the same elementary school I attended for four years)
Lunch at Subway.
Cookie for President!
There was also a box of chocolates that came with the flowers. Yum.
Hopefully tomorrow will be better
Counting the words.
I love how this bridge glows with a blue light at night.
I’m a giant!
The view down the center of one of the racks of baby girl clothes.
The top drawer of my desk.
Looking down into my hydrangea plant in the back yard. I probably should pull those leaves out… I doubt I will, though (said the lazy gardener)
Concave reflection in the rear view mirror of a old school bus.
Almost 3/4 of the way through book four.
It’s funny what you don’t see when you are taking a photo until after you get the file downloaded.
They were yummy.
I love toddlers in tights.
Waiting in line for cheesecake samples!
I can’t believe how much rain we’ve had this summer.
You can sort of see me, right?
This photo is full of joy for me.
Yes, our Christmas decorations are still up.
Just hanging in the bushes next to the daycare parking lot.
There is something so comforting about sitting in a pile of leaves.
toyota showroom – oil change/maintenance
A black and white photo for a somber occasion.
I used a filter to simulate halftone printing.
This makes me smile.
My mom still has my dad’s uniform as well as two from my brother and my Girl Scout uniform. Sometimes it’s good to have a mom who doesn’t get rid of a lot of things.
I swear, I can’t get enough of this little person and her chubby legs.
Their boobs proved to be a major impediment to successful planking.
I feel bad for the other bird.
A pyramid of beer samples glasses.
The back of a delivery truck.
Still in surprisingly good condition after 16 months.
I am NOT a fan of spiders.
A pop of bright colors.
Former restroom converted into holding cells.
Symmetry and shadows.
Screen shot of one of the many videos I took.
Totally captivated by the toy display.
I’ve always thought it was somewhat strange that grass can be rolled up like this.
Everyone needs a plastic bull head, right?
You have no idea how happy it made me yesterday to finally find her!
It was so nice to see something so fresh and flowering outdoors in November.
I think it’s funny how the thing that’s really growing in this photo is a weed that will eventually get pulled out.
7.11 ounces of pure joy.
My son always chooses the mystery flavor so I grabbed one for him today.
The T-Rex is making an appearance in some of my husband’s recent paintings.
Yep. I did that.
Our weekly shopping trip to Costco.
Knit night at Presto tonight.
Elmo on the floor.
The ceiling at the pediatrician’s office.
Snuggling and getting warm and dry under the towels at the pool today.
Chubby little toes.
The bears are alive!
Simple and bold.
The cars behind me probably wouldn’t be happy to know my extremely slow speed was because I was taking this photo. Next time I’ll keep both hands on the wheel.
I took these photos a few months ago and have been saving them since I knew this day would come at some point this year.
I love how large the images were behind him.
Yes, the lawn caught on fire a little bit over on the right…
Mmmmmm…. Warm cinnamon-y apple-y goodness!
We were all pretty freaked out about these clouds. We thought for sure a tornado was going to form at any minute.
Good and evil.
Labyrinth in an abandoned reservoir.
The view from overhead.
Waiting for the right zipper (those are two options hanging around the top.
I love finding faces in ordinary things.
Have I mentioned I adore having a little girl?
With windows like this it’s no wonder our energy bills are so high.
Is this pancake cannibalism?
Two little deers. (or is the plural of deer just “deer?”)
Holding his robot and waiting in line for his turn to show me what he programmed it to do.
So much snow!
My cake was delicious!
One hand on a lung, the other on a kidney.
I love the contrast of parallel lines against the strong diagonals.
The same building rendered two different ways.
It’s nice to see this played with again.
I love the natural light in this photo.
You can see my husband in the reflection dutifully bagging and paying while I stalk my kids for photo opportunities.
I love the light in our bathroom.
I’m so glad we have sidewalks where we live.
Kirby & Holloway Family Restaurant
She held Minnie’s hand all the way to daycare.
“I touch it”
I wish I had a dress like this when I was a little girl.
This was the only thing in the station that wasn’t sparkling clean and shiny.
Community meeting nights are the perfect nights for junk food.
Custom details add flair to any 18 wheeler, right?
Pushing her car down the sidewalk.
I love yarn.
This game has taken over my life for the past week and I finally finished level 5 during lunch today. While I’m happy to be finished building Rome, I’m not happy about the “Continue” button at the bottom. I want my life back.
My daughter called this her “nest”
I. Love. These. Boots.
If it wasn’t for the numbers and the variation in brick color, this totally looks like a mirrored image.
Single lane covered bridge on the way from my in-laws to my house.
Running across the bridge with her shiny cape.
I love yarn so much.
This was a perfect way to end our vacation.
I love how the out ring is so much darker.
I love how they all appear to be looking at me.
I’m so happy they opened a second location and it’s near my house!
The “cake” was a big hit. Rice Krispie Treats stacked to look like a game of Minecraft.
I love the simplicity of this machine – and the giant buttons.
I love how the sky is orange under the bridge and blue above.
I love finding cute handmade things on Etsy.
Kids are awesome.
Saturday morning art.
Tiny jeans and lots of sand.
I can’t bring myself to throw away any scraps.
Bright green Mini
This is only about 1/5 of the entire wall – all covered in hand prints.
I really love this composition.
It doesn’t really look like it, but this photo (one photo) is perfectly split in two visually – half shutter, half brick.
This almost looks like an amphitheater with rows of seats.
Parking garage signage
All prepped and ready for her sleepytime medicine.
Second grade Invention Convention
Driving over the Chesapeake and Delaware Canal bridge on my way to a meeting in Dover.
Getting a hug from Snow White after the show.
It kind of looks like a green tongue doesn’t it?
Wearing a beer bottle hat.
Drawing on the chalk wall.
Most of it has already chipped off. I love how it matches her dress today.
Is there really this big of a demand for this stuff?
I love the gray wig / backpack combo.
Suddenly I have a craving for Doritos…
It turned out a little more girly than I would normally make for my son… but it’s still super awesome… and it fits me too…
I wear these shoes almost every day. I puffy heart love them.
The view from above.
I love the scratch off cards from eat.sleep.knit.com! (especially when I win some Malabrigo!)
Circles inside of circles
I am completely fascinated by these crazy goat climbing structures at the petting zoo.
Almost nobody on the road.
I had such a hard time getting this little guy in focus. This was the best I could do out of about 8 different shots.
I love seeing my son having fun and interacting with his friends at Cub Scouts.
It’s amazing how greasy it looks.
I love this bag.
I love little knitting projects like this one.
I love the expression on my son’s face in this one.
The Chinatown Gate through the rainy windshield.
Not the best way to start my day.
Shiny high tops
So many lights!
It was a wild and crazy night at our house.
Just browsing the art supplies.
Don’t they look appetizing?
My daughter seem to be dominating this blog… (photo taken with ipad mini)
I kind of liked the contrast between the stark white at the top and the gooey muck at the bottom.
The lights at the edge of the bumper car roof. The sky was so washed out it almost looks white. I love the contrast with the bright colors.
I love the reflection in the table.
What a wonderful view.
arms and tummy…
Captured in mid-air.
I’m not sure if this is a really great idea, or a really crazy idea.
Sleeping next to the dinosaurs.
Just roll, snap and wrap!
Taking a running leap.
My son’s entry at his elementary school science fair.
Mirrored ceiling in Boscov’s
You can kind of see the leg of one of the two people who came tonight.
This was a lucky shot since the heart shape disappeared moments later.
Unfortunately they were all at the very bottom of the container or in back in this photo so you can’t really see them.
I’m so glad I always have my camera with me.
Why is it the grass seems to grow faster than I have the energy to mow it?
I don’t know why, but it makes me so happy that my daughter likes these toys (Calico Critters) – they are adorable.
The back of the clown’s hat isn’t all that exciting to look at.
We finally got some snow last night. Not much, but enough to require scraping the windshield and blasting the defrost to help it melt faster.
All ready for a trip to the microwave.
