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…
Kind of creepy, but still fun to have after all these years.
Notice how everyone has a piece of cake…
Under the table.
I love how the sky is orange under the bridge and blue above.
Don’t they look appetizing?
The view through the glass garage door.
Almost nobody on the road.
The woman in white.
Elmo on the floor.
Driving over the Chesapeake and Delaware Canal bridge on my way to a meeting in Dover.
I love that the plates, cups, utensils, teapot and cooking pot were all mine when I was little.
They both had a great time and did a great job remembering to say “Thank you!”
I love a good neon sign.
It’s a potato, it’s a turkey, it’s a po-turkey!
Ribbons for each race hanging in front of the white wooden box that held all the cars.
Shopping at Costco.
Holding his robot and waiting in line for his turn to show me what he programmed it to do.
This was not the way I expected my day to start.
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…
This makes me smile.
Tastykake display at my local Wawa.
I’m so glad we have sidewalks where we live.
There is something so nostalgic about the Arby’s signs.
As you can see, my mom loves frosting.
Drawing on the chalk wall.
The best part about this store is getting to and from the rooftop parking.
I swear, I can’t get enough of this little person and her chubby legs.
The weather was PERFECT!
Another of my former toys. Thanks for saving it Mom!
Pantone Universe at Lowes!
I love the old 1970s fonts
I love the little pop of green on the right.
99% of these were mine when I was little.
I’ve been in bed so much this weekend my back hurts from lying down so much.
He read the entire book in one night… while at a cub scout event.
Thank goodness for free e-filing.
It’s like living in a game of Minecraft.
The view from the concave side.
I love the reflection in the table.
This was a perfect way to end our vacation.
It’s funny what you don’t see when you are taking a photo until after you get the file downloaded.
Looking up from under the playground walkway.
What a wonderful view.
I absolutely love these leggings.
All of the trophies were made out of Duplos.
You can barely see her, but my daughter is sitting on my son’s lap in this photo while they both watched the ceremony.
I really love this composition.
I have a thing for reflection photos. I seem to take a lot of them.
Looking up through the stair well.
I love how the text is written in Helvetica. Such a perfect use for this font.
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.
The same building rendered two different ways.
I’m loving this project so far!
Custom details add flair to any 18 wheeler, right?
Former restroom converted into holding cells.
I kind of liked the contrast between the stark white at the top and the gooey muck at the bottom.
Swiss design means it must be good, right?
You can kind of see the leg of one of the two people who came tonight.
Why is it the grass seems to grow faster than I have the energy to mow it?
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.
Good and evil.
1977 VW Rabbit Brochure – US Market – Front and Back Covers
I wish I could sit in a box and watch movies.
The back of a delivery truck.
I had never heard of this guy until today… apparently he’s THE BIG THING right now.
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.
I love finding cute handmade things on Etsy.
Pushing her car down the sidewalk.
The Yah RV.
I don’t know why, but I still love getting these back to school supply lists from the teacher.
I love the gray wig / backpack combo.
Is that a camera in the square next to the words “Free Air”? Why would they need a camera on the air pump?
My little girl walking to “school” (daycare) all decked out in hearts and carrying her new purse.
I love the expression on my son’s face in this one.
Bright green Mini
I wear these shoes almost every day. I puffy heart love them.
The Chinatown Gate through the rainy windshield.
Parking garage signage
The view on the way back down. That tiny speck along the path is my son way up ahead of us.
I love toddlers in tights.
We were all pretty freaked out about these clouds. We thought for sure a tornado was going to form at any minute.
Chilling in the living room before bedtime.
It kind of looks like a green tongue doesn’t it?
Somehow my son always seems to end up buying Park Place and winning the game.
The “cake” was a big hit. Rice Krispie Treats stacked to look like a game of Minecraft.
I love yarn so much.
I feel bad for the other bird.
I love this.
It’s so fun to watch them make cotton candy – and even more fun to eat.
This building is as great on the inside as it is on the outside.
My daughter loved the flower arrangements on the tables. Also, notice her hat? Yep, I made it! Yay me!
I’m a sucker for big bold graphics.
He’s probably thinking, “I wish she would get that camera out of my face.”
Still in surprisingly good condition after 16 months.
I love the simplicity of this machine – and the giant buttons.
Not the best way to start my day.
Our weekly shopping trip to Target.
The ceiling at the pediatrician’s office.

Sometimes I bring yarn to work just so I can squeeze it all day.
This was a lucky shot since the heart shape disappeared moments later.
Sometimes the colors of ordinary things can be extraordinarily inspiring.
I absolutely love the views down these orchard rows.
I love this view.
Those crazy Unitarians (actually, this is where my husband and I got married – almost 13 years ago!)
The view from above.
It’s amazing how greasy it looks.
Luckily I actually like most of these songs.
On top of the world.
She held Minnie’s hand all the way to daycare.
The foot on a $32,000 statue of Ganesh in ABC Carpet and Home. For good luck, people offer him money, stuffing it or balancing it anywhere they can.
Is there really this big of a demand for this stuff?
I find this both wonderful and extremely distracting when driving into Philly.
Kirby & Holloway Family Restaurant
All ready for a trip to the microwave.
My view from the top of the slide.
Elmo being visited by the angel Gabriel… or maybe it’s the angel Grover… or the angel Cookie Monster?
Two little deers. (or is the plural of deer just “deer?”)
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.
My son kept trying to figure out how much it would cost to get that many Legos.
Another truck photo…
Waiting for the right zipper (those are two options hanging around the top.
She had some trouble carrying this today since it was kind of windy and she’s never held an umbrella before.
It’s nice to see this played with again.
So much snow!
A pyramid of beer samples glasses.
My daughter seem to be dominating this blog… (photo taken with ipad mini)
This almost looks like an amphitheater with rows of seats.
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 the smiles.
I have no words. Sigh.
I love the juxtaposition of natural and man made elements.
Mirrored ceiling in Boscov’s
I love these little squishy legs!
The water fountain in the school where my son has his cub scout meetings (the same elementary school I attended for four years)
I love the contrast of parallel lines against the strong diagonals.
It was a wild and crazy night at our house.
Do you say “s’more ingredients?” or “s’mores ingredients?” I’ve always wondered if the singular of s’mores is s’more.
Mmmmmm…. Warm cinnamon-y apple-y goodness!
So many lights!
I’m so glad I always have my camera with me.
Screen shot of one of the many videos I took.
The sky was wonderful today – perfect for shadows.
With windows like this it’s no wonder our energy bills are so high.
What is it about kids that they just don’t seem to care about getting so messy?
I think he may need a belt.
Suddenly I have a craving for Doritos…
Again, thanks go to my mom for saving so many of my old toys!

All prepped and ready for her sleepytime medicine.
A new fashion trend?
I realized after everything was glued down that the dog sled guy is sledding on grass.
arms and tummy…
Taking a running leap.
Doesn’t everyone wear their poofy dresses and rainbow leggings to the playground?
The view down the race track before the big event.
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.
Holding her new Duplo Cinderella.
Just hanging in the bushes next to the daycare parking lot.
My bedside table and view out the window.
I love the bright green.
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.
Waiting for us to drop some food.
Concave reflection in the rear view mirror of a old school bus.
I. Love. These. Boots.
One hand on a lung, the other on a kidney.
I’m so happy they opened a second location and it’s near my house!
I love how you can see my kids and me reflection.
I love woolly bears!
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.

This photo makes me want to have another piece.
I love this little guy!
It doesn’t really look like it, but this photo (one photo) is perfectly split in two visually – half shutter, half brick.
I wish I had a dress like this when I was a little girl.
I’m not sure I would call them “gourmet” but they are pretty darn delicious.
The view from overhead.
My son’s remote control car crashed into me second after I took this photo. It, and I, survived.
