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…
arms and tummy…
Saturday morning art.
Tastykake display at my local Wawa.
Just browsing the art supplies.
They always love the keyboard room the most.
The back of a delivery truck.
I think it’s funny how the thing that’s really growing in this photo is a weed that will eventually get pulled out.
Yes, the lawn caught on fire a little bit over on the right…
Pantone Universe at Lowes!
Best gift ever.
I love this little guy!
It took the elves 5 hours to build this!
My bedside table and view out the window.
1977 VW Rabbit Brochure – US Market – Front and Back Covers
A black and white photo for a somber occasion.
Another of my former toys. Thanks for saving it Mom!
Halfway done and another half to go to finish the year.
You can kind of see the leg of one of the two people who came tonight.
The Chinatown Gate through the rainy windshield.
I had never heard of this guy until today… apparently he’s THE BIG THING right now.
You can sort of see me, right?
Shiny high tops
I’m so glad we have sidewalks where we live.
I love these little squishy legs!
Is this pancake cannibalism?
I love this.
I love the simplicity of this machine – and the giant buttons.
I love the curved stairs at the bottom landing.
Yep. I did that.
Pushing her car down the sidewalk.
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.
Kirby & Holloway Family Restaurant
So strange to be using my headlights at 5:20 p.m.
I love how the out ring is so much darker.
A new fashion trend?
Symmetry and shadows.
Just hanging in the bushes next to the daycare parking lot.
Is there really this big of a demand for this stuff?
I’m a sucker for big bold graphics.
He got all of the gears to move at the same time!
She held Minnie’s hand all the way to daycare.
My daughter seem to be dominating this blog… (photo taken with ipad mini)
I. Love. These. Boots.
Such a happy color.
Waiting in line for cheesecake samples!
A sign of a good year to come is when everyone has new shoes to wear.
The view down the race track before the big event.
I love the reflection in the table.
The “cake” was a big hit. Rice Krispie Treats stacked to look like a game of Minecraft.
I love that the plates, cups, utensils, teapot and cooking pot were all mine when I was little.
This photo makes me want to have another piece.
They both had a great time and did a great job remembering to say “Thank you!”
I’m so happy they opened a second location and it’s near my house!
The tutu has swallowed her legs!
So many lights!
Waiting for us to drop some food.
I can’t bring myself to throw away any scraps.
I find this both wonderful and extremely distracting when driving into Philly.
I wish I could sit in a box and watch movies.
I love the expression on my son’s face in this one.
I was surprised at how long he stood there while I took his picture. I was super close. I didn’t use a zoom for this picture.
This almost looks like an amphitheater with rows of seats.
Cookie for President!
Luckily I actually like most of these songs.
Making sure she gets every last spoonful.
I feel bad for the other bird.
It’s amazing how greasy it looks.
Blowing out Daddy’s birthday candles.
Circles inside of circles
I wish I could have seen the full color version!
The view from above.
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.
Snuggling and getting warm and dry under the towels at the pool today.
Drawing on the chalk wall.
Just roll, snap and wrap!
Reading Spongebob to Spongebob.
Basking in the glow of the ipad.
Not the best way to start my day.
One hand on a lung, the other on a kidney.
I still haven’t put away the silverware we used at Thanksgiving and Christmas.
It was so nice to see something so fresh and flowering outdoors in November.
It’s a potato, it’s a turkey, it’s a po-turkey!
The weather was PERFECT!
You can see my husband in the reflection dutifully bagging and paying while I stalk my kids for photo opportunities.
My little girl walking to “school” (daycare) all decked out in hearts and carrying her new purse.
A pop of bright colors.
This building is as great on the inside as it is on the outside.
I think he may need a belt.
She didn’t take these off all evening.

Almost 3/4 of the way through book four.
The best part about this store is getting to and from the rooftop parking.
Everyone needs a plastic bull head, right?

Lunch at Subway.
I love woolly bears!
A spaceman in his spaceship with lego-man wings.
I love finding faces in ordinary things.
I used a filter to simulate halftone printing.
Two little deers. (or is the plural of deer just “deer?”)
I love how they all appear to be looking at me.
Yes, our Christmas decorations are still up.
Do you say “s’more ingredients?” or “s’mores ingredients?” I’ve always wondered if the singular of s’mores is s’more.
The clouds were incredible looking.
I love the natural light in this photo.
Somehow my son always seems to end up buying Park Place and winning the game.
With windows like this it’s no wonder our energy bills are so high.
Have I mentioned I adore having a little girl?
So much snow!
Labyrinth in an abandoned reservoir.
Community meeting nights are the perfect nights for junk food.

It kind of looks like a green tongue doesn’t it?

Taking a running leap.
The view on the way back down. That tiny speck along the path is my son way up ahead of us.
Totally captivated by the toy display.
I realized after everything was glued down that the dog sled guy is sledding on grass.
I’m so glad I always have my camera with me.
Waiting at the doctor’s office for her two year checkup.
First time at the new Costco.
I love yarn so much.
I love the gray wig / backpack combo.
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.
I love how the sky is orange under the bridge and blue above.
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.
The view under the table at Costco.
Looking up through the stair well.
Thank goodness for free e-filing.
Shopping at Costco.
I don’t know why, but it makes me so happy that my daughter likes these toys (Calico Critters) – they are adorable.
My son kept trying to figure out how much it would cost to get that many Legos.
All prepped and ready for her sleepytime medicine.
Good and evil.
I can’t believe how much rain we’ve had this summer.
What is the stuff in the center of these? Frosting?
Mirrored ceiling in Boscov’s
Kind of creepy, but still fun to have after all these years.
Hopefully tomorrow will be better
My son’s entry at his elementary school science fair.
Unfortunately they were all at the very bottom of the container or in back in this photo so you can’t really see them.
Something about this reminds me of a David Lynch movie.
Captured in mid-air.
My daughter called this her “nest”

It was a wild and crazy night at our house.
A portion of the side of the WasteMasters dumpster outside my office. You can actually see the fuzzy silver reflection of my car.
Don’t they look appetizing?
Waiting for the right zipper (those are two options hanging around the top.
This was not the way I expected my day to start.
Notice how everyone has a piece of cake…
That’s my girl!
Counting the words.
He’s probably thinking, “I wish she would get that camera out of my face.”
Bubble blowing after dinner.
It’s amazing to me that something in nature can be so shiny and metallic looking.
It doesn’t really look like it, but this photo (one photo) is perfectly split in two visually – half shutter, half brick.
Again, thanks go to my mom for saving so many of my old toys!
Suddenly I have a craving for Doritos…
She had some trouble carrying this today since it was kind of windy and she’s never held an umbrella before.
Why is it the grass seems to grow faster than I have the energy to mow it?

They were yummy.
All ready for a trip to the microwave.
I am NOT a fan of spiders.
The view from the concave side.
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 love how the text is written in Helvetica. Such a perfect use for this font.
Parking garage signage
I love how you can see my kids and me reflection.
I love toddlers in tights.
I’ve been in bed so much this weekend my back hurts from lying down so much.
I made her stand there while I took photo after photo trying to get the dandelion in focus. This was the only one that worked.

I love the contrast of parallel lines against the strong diagonals.
This photo is full of joy for me.
