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…
I love the light in our bathroom.
I love looking through the base of our new living room lamps.
The same building rendered two different ways.
Bubble blowing after dinner.
Such a happy color.
You can kind of see the leg of one of the two people who came tonight.
You can sort of see me, right?
I find this both wonderful and extremely distracting when driving into Philly.
I’m so glad we have sidewalks where we live.
Under the table.
I wish I could sit in a box and watch movies.
I love how the sky is orange under the bridge and blue above.
The Chinatown Gate through the rainy windshield.
I love the little pop of green on the right.
My daughter seem to be dominating this blog… (photo taken with ipad mini)
7.11 ounces of pure joy.
Looking up from under the playground walkway.
The Salvation Army guy kept looking at me like I was crazy.
Something about this reminds me of a David Lynch movie.
Totally captivated by the toy display.
The view from overhead.
I love the reflection in the table.
I love all of the lines in this photo – from the bridge in the background, the boardwalk railing and shadows.
Do you say “s’more ingredients?” or “s’mores ingredients?” I’ve always wondered if the singular of s’mores is s’more.
Second grade Invention Convention
Carpet in the Hotel Dupont.
The gun has a face.
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)
Tastykake display at my local Wawa.
Our weekly shopping trip to Costco.
toyota showroom – oil change/maintenance
I love toddlers in tights.
Getting a hug from Snow White after the show.
The view from above.
Yes, our Christmas decorations are still up.
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. These. Boots.
Holding his robot and waiting in line for his turn to show me what he programmed it to do.
Sleeping next to the dinosaurs.
Shopping at Costco.
I love yarn so much.
Parking garage signage
Wearing a beer bottle hat.
This was a lucky shot since the heart shape disappeared moments later.
Elmo being visited by the angel Gabriel… or maybe it’s the angel Grover… or the angel Cookie Monster?
I hope she does OK today. She was very excited to wear these.
Driving over the Chesapeake and Delaware Canal bridge on my way to a meeting in Dover.
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.
Sometimes I bring yarn to work just so I can squeeze it all day.
My three favorite people in the world at one of my favorite local places to go for a walk.
Everyone needs a plastic bull head, right?
At the exit from a parking garage downtown.
There was also a box of chocolates that came with the flowers. Yum.
I am NOT a fan of spiders.
We were all pretty freaked out about these clouds. We thought for sure a tornado was going to form at any minute.
I love the gray wig / backpack combo.
Labyrinth in an abandoned reservoir.
Waiting at the doctor’s office for her two year checkup.
Cool? Or creepy?
As you can see, my mom loves frosting.
Looking up through the stair well.
You can see my husband in the reflection dutifully bagging and paying while I stalk my kids for photo opportunities.
The bears are alive!
A pyramid of beer samples glasses.
I love little knitting projects like this one.
Just hanging in the bushes next to the daycare parking lot.
Yes, the lawn caught on fire a little bit over on the right…
He is obsessed with Minecraft.
Trying on her big brother’s boots.
There is something so comforting about sitting in a pile of leaves.
This makes me smile.
I love how the out ring is so much darker.
I love the natural light in this photo.
Cookie for President!
1977 VW Rabbit Brochure – US Market – Front and Back Covers
I am completely fascinated by these crazy goat climbing structures at the petting zoo.
Concave reflection in the rear view mirror of a old school bus.
It’s amazing to me that something in nature can be so shiny and metallic looking.
All ready for a trip to the microwave.
Yep. I did that.
The view under the table at Costco.
Some see yarn, I see endless possibility and hours of entertainment.
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.
The view from the concave side.
The toy my son is resting his head on was my favorite stuffed animal when I was little.
This almost looks like an amphitheater with rows of seats.
There is something so nostalgic about the Arby’s signs.
On our way to the playground.
I was especially impressed with how clean everything was.
The weather was PERFECT!
Don’t they look appetizing?
Our weekly shopping trip to Target.
So many lights!
Stripes and Elmo
I’ve always thought it was somewhat strange that grass can be rolled up like this.
I still haven’t put away the silverware we used at Thanksgiving and Christmas.
It was a wild and crazy night at our house.
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.
The T-Rex is making an appearance in some of my husband’s recent paintings.
I love woolly bears!
Eating lunch at the park today.
Elmo on the floor.
The view through the glass garage door.
Notice how everyone has a piece of cake…
I wear these shoes almost every day. I puffy heart love them.
This photo is full of joy for me.
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.
Halfway done and another half to go to finish the year.
Another of my former toys. Thanks for saving it Mom!
My son made this tonight when I told him today was the 100th day of doing my blog.
The “cake” was a big hit. Rice Krispie Treats stacked to look like a game of Minecraft.
The Yah RV.
Not the best way to start my day.
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.
This was the only thing in the station that wasn’t sparkling clean and shiny.
I swear, I can’t get enough of this little person and her chubby legs.
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.
Kirby & Holloway Family Restaurant
The view on the way back down. That tiny speck along the path is my son way up ahead of us.
Captured in mid-air.
So much snow!
I used a filter to simulate halftone printing.
I feel bad for the other bird.
Getting ready to leave after a nice diner meal.
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.
I think it’s funny how the thing that’s really growing in this photo is a weed that will eventually get pulled out.
I can’t believe how much rain we’ve had this summer.
I love how neat and organized and at the same time a bit haphazard and disorganized these bundles are.
Kids are awesome.
Custom details add flair to any 18 wheeler, right?
All it needs is some eyes.
Is this pancake cannibalism?
The top drawer of my desk.
I love how they all appear to be looking at me.
If it wasn’t for the numbers and the variation in brick color, this totally looks like a mirrored image.
Kind of creepy, but still fun to have after all these years.
I love finding faces in ordinary things.
She had some trouble carrying this today since it was kind of windy and she’s never held an umbrella before.
Simple and bold.
Origami heart bookmarks.
Good and evil.
I love the contrast of parallel lines against the strong diagonals.
My son’s entry at his elementary school science fair.
Saturday morning art.
I love this.
I kind of liked the contrast between the stark white at the top and the gooey muck at the bottom.
I love this view.
Almost 3/4 of the way through book four.
The water fountain in the school where my son has his cub scout meetings (the same elementary school I attended for four years)
All prepped and ready for her sleepytime medicine.
It’s amazing how greasy it looks.
Knit night at Presto tonight.
Holding her new Duplo Cinderella.
Drawing on the chalk wall.
I love this bag.
I love those toddler thighs!
Suddenly I have a craving for Doritos…
A portion of the side of the WasteMasters dumpster outside my office. You can actually see the fuzzy silver reflection of my car.
You can barely see her, but my daughter is sitting on my son’s lap in this photo while they both watched the ceremony.
Screen shot of one of the many videos I took.
I wish I had a dress like this when I was a little girl.
The tutu has swallowed her legs!
The back of a delivery truck.
So strange to be using my headlights at 5:20 p.m.
Blowing out Daddy’s birthday candles.
I love how you can see my kids and me reflection.
I love the scratch off cards from eat.sleep.knit.com! (especially when I win some Malabrigo!)
Making sure she gets every last spoonful.
It’s like living in a game of Minecraft.
A pop of bright colors.
Mirrored ceiling in Boscov’s
They were yummy.
This building is as great on the inside as it is on the outside.
Yes, it was delicious.
I love the old 1970s fonts
I love the simplicity of this machine – and the giant buttons.
I absolutely love the views down these orchard rows.
What is the stuff in the center of these? Frosting?
My son achieved the new “Boat Float” record at Hagley Museum’s Invention Convention – 305 marbles (94 more than the previous record of 211!)
I love these little squishy legs!
Is there really this big of a demand for this stuff?
Former restroom converted into holding cells.
Is that a camera in the square next to the words “Free Air”? Why would they need a camera on the air pump?
arms and tummy…
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’m so happy they opened a second location and it’s near my house!
This photo makes me want to have another piece.
She held Minnie’s hand all the way to daycare.
Cicada shell from the side.
I’m a giant!
I love finding cute handmade things on Etsy.
I’m not sure I would call them “gourmet” but they are pretty darn delicious.
The woman in white.
This was not the way I expected my day to start.
I love how large the images were behind him.
My son always chooses the mystery flavor so I grabbed one for him today.
I love the juxtaposition of natural and man made elements.
A black and white photo for a somber occasion.
The ceiling at the pediatrician’s office.
The best part about this store is getting to and from the rooftop parking.
Looking through the bottom of the shopping cart.
Best gift ever.

Counting the words.
Bright yellow ceiling and curved light fixtures at the Lego Store.
A sign of a good year to come is when everyone has new shoes to wear.
I can’t bring myself to throw away any scraps.
I love the color of the steel against the blue sky.
Waiting for the right zipper (those are two options hanging around the top.
I love the curved stairs at the bottom landing.
All of the trophies were made out of Duplos.
Two little deers. (or is the plural of deer just “deer?”)
He’s probably thinking, “I wish she would get that camera out of my face.”
Actually, full disclosure… the one on the bottom is store bought (before I started knitting)
