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…
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.
Looking up from under the playground walkway.
I love this view.
Taking a running leap.
Sometimes the colors of ordinary things can be extraordinarily inspiring.
Saturday morning art.
The Salvation Army guy kept looking at me like I was crazy.
I’ve been in bed so much this weekend my back hurts from lying down so much.
Mmmmmm…. Warm cinnamon-y apple-y goodness!
This was not the way I expected my day to start.
First time at the new Costco.
I love this.
Cool? Or creepy?
You can barely see her, but my daughter is sitting on my son’s lap in this photo while they both watched the ceremony.
The toy my son is resting his head on was my favorite stuffed animal when I was little.
I love the juxtaposition of natural and man made elements.
That’s my girl!
Blowing out Daddy’s birthday candles.
They both had a great time and did a great job remembering to say “Thank you!”
My son always chooses the mystery flavor so I grabbed one for him today.
I have no words. Sigh.
Our weekly shopping trip to Target.
This was a perfect way to end our vacation.
I love the expression on my son’s face in this one.
I love the scratch off cards from eat.sleep.knit.com! (especially when I win some Malabrigo!)
This was the only thing in the station that wasn’t sparkling clean and shiny.
I wish I could have seen the full color version!
Chilling in the living room before bedtime.
The back of the clown’s hat isn’t all that exciting to look at.
Is that a camera in the square next to the words “Free Air”? Why would they need a camera on the air pump?
Notice how everyone has a piece of cake…
Labyrinth in an abandoned reservoir.
Second grade Invention Convention
Lunch at Subway.
He’s probably thinking, “I wish she would get that camera out of my face.”
Looking up through the stair well.
Waiting at the doctor’s office for her two year checkup.
I love little knitting projects like this one.
I love this little guy!
I have a thing for reflection photos. I seem to take a lot of them.
The best part about this store is getting to and from the rooftop parking.
Tastykake display at my local Wawa.
So much snow!
All it needs is some eyes.
Shopping at Costco.
He got all of the gears to move at the same time!
So many lights!
I’ve always thought it was somewhat strange that grass can be rolled up like this.
I love how neat and organized and at the same time a bit haphazard and disorganized these bundles are.
This photo is full of joy for me.
Again, thanks go to my mom for saving so many of my old toys!
On our way to the playground.
I love the natural light in this photo.
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.
A portion of the side of the WasteMasters dumpster outside my office. You can actually see the fuzzy silver reflection of my car.
It doesn’t really look like it, but this photo (one photo) is perfectly split in two visually – half shutter, half brick.
I love the contrast of parallel lines against the strong diagonals.
Thank goodness for free e-filing.
Elmo on the floor.
You can sort of see me, right?
A sign of a good year to come is when everyone has new shoes to wear.
I love looking through the base of our new living room lamps.
My little girl walking to “school” (daycare) all decked out in hearts and carrying her new purse.
Pushing her car down the sidewalk.
I love this.
Not the best way to start my day.
My bedside table and view out the window.
It took the elves 5 hours to build this!
Another truck photo…
Maybe it’s the blue eyes?
Origami heart bookmarks.
toyota showroom – oil change/maintenance
I realized after everything was glued down that the dog sled guy is sledding on grass.
Almost nobody on the road.
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 down the race track before the big event.
I love how the text is written in Helvetica. Such a perfect use for this font.
I love the old 1970s fonts
Just hanging out in pajamas doing puzzle on a Saturday morning. Perfect.
I love the reflection in the table.
I can’t bring myself to throw away any scraps.
She had some trouble carrying this today since it was kind of windy and she’s never held an umbrella before.
It kind of looks like a green tongue doesn’t it?
My cake was delicious!
I love how you can see my kids and me reflection.
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.
Most of it has already chipped off. I love how it matches her dress today.
I love how this bridge glows with a blue light at night.
The clouds were incredible looking.
Yes, it was delicious.
Our weekly shopping trip to Costco.
Screen shot of one of the many videos I took.
Totally captivated by the toy display.

I love this bag.

Getting a hug from Snow White after the show.
Tiny jeans and lots of sand.
The back of a delivery truck.
This almost looks like an amphitheater with rows of seats.
I’m a giant!
I kind of liked the contrast between the stark white at the top and the gooey muck at the bottom.
Is this pancake cannibalism?
My view from the top of the slide.
You have no idea how happy it made me yesterday to finally find her!
As you can see, my mom loves frosting.
I wish I could sit in a box and watch movies.
The top drawer of my desk.
Versatile stain remover.
It was so nice to see something so fresh and flowering outdoors in November.
Luckily I actually like most of these songs.
The weather was PERFECT!
Two little deers. (or is the plural of deer just “deer?”)
Something about this reminds me of a David Lynch movie.
I really love this composition.
I can’t believe how much rain we’ve had this summer.
The Pep Boys… Manny, Moe and Jack
Under the table.
I love all of the lines in this photo – from the bridge in the background, the boardwalk railing and shadows.
I love these little squishy legs!
I love having a little girl.
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.
There is something so nostalgic about the Arby’s signs.
Snuggling and getting warm and dry under the towels at the pool today.
I feel bad for the other bird.
You can kind of see the leg of one of the two people who came tonight.
At the exit from a parking garage downtown.
Nothing like ice cream before dinner, right?
Kirby & Holloway Family Restaurant
Carpet in the Hotel Dupont.
They were yummy.
Those crazy Unitarians (actually, this is where my husband and I got married – almost 13 years ago!)
My daughter loved the flower arrangements on the tables. Also, notice her hat? Yep, I made it! Yay me!
All prepped and ready for her sleepytime medicine.
Waiting for the anesthesia to wear off.
The ceiling at the pediatrician’s office.
Kids are awesome.
Best gift ever.
My son made this tonight when I told him today was the 100th day of doing my blog.
I’m so glad I always have my camera with me.
If it wasn’t for the numbers and the variation in brick color, this totally looks like a mirrored image.
I love toddlers in tights.
The tutu has swallowed her legs!
Drawing on the chalk wall.
Halfway done and another half to go to finish the year.
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.
I am completely fascinated by these crazy goat climbing structures at the petting zoo.
Almost 3/4 of the way through book four.
It’s amazing to me that something in nature can be so shiny and metallic looking.
Cookie for President!
I see this truck all over town and it always makes me smile.
Eating lunch at the park today.
7.11 ounces of pure joy.
I love the little pop of green on the right.
We were all pretty freaked out about these clouds. We thought for sure a tornado was going to form at any minute.
Waiting for the right zipper (those are two options hanging around the top.
Bright yellow ceiling and curved light fixtures at the Lego Store.
Why is it the grass seems to grow faster than I have the energy to mow it?
It’s nice to see this played with again.
Yes, the lawn caught on fire a little bit over on the right…
I love those toddler thighs!
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.
It was a wild and crazy night at our house.
The view under the table at Costco.
Just hanging in the bushes next to the daycare parking lot.
I don’t know why, but it makes me so happy that my daughter likes these toys (Calico Critters) – they are adorable.
I was especially impressed with how clean everything was.
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.
Do you say “s’more ingredients?” or “s’mores ingredients?” I’ve always wondered if the singular of s’mores is s’more.
I love a good neon sign.
Pantone Universe at Lowes!
Kind of creepy, but still fun to have after all these years.
I love the smiles.
The woman in white.
99% of these were mine when I was little.
All ready for a trip to the microwave.
It’s like living in a game of Minecraft.
Community meeting nights are the perfect nights for junk food.
Bubble blowing after dinner.
With windows like this it’s no wonder our energy bills are so high.
Is there really this big of a demand for this stuff?
Have I mentioned I adore having a little girl?
Circles inside of circles
“I touch it”
Symmetry and shadows.
Swiss design means it must be good, right?
This makes me smile.
The Yah RV.
The same building rendered two different ways.
I’m so glad we have sidewalks where we live.
The view through the glass garage door.
I’m so happy they opened a second location and it’s near my house!
I’m not sure if this is a really great idea, or a really crazy idea.
A new fashion trend?
Just getting started.
A black and white photo for a somber occasion.
This was a lucky shot since the heart shape disappeared moments later.
