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…
Everyone needs a plastic bull head, right?
I’m so glad we have sidewalks where we live.
Knit night at Presto tonight.
I kind of liked the contrast between the stark white at the top and the gooey muck at the bottom.
I’m a giant!
It was so nice to see something so fresh and flowering outdoors in November.
All prepped and ready for her sleepytime medicine.
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.
A spaceman in his spaceship with lego-man wings.
Cookie for President!
All it needs is some eyes.
I am NOT a fan of spiders.
All ready for a trip to the microwave.
It’s a potato, it’s a turkey, it’s a po-turkey!
It’s funny what you don’t see when you are taking a photo until after you get the file downloaded.
I love how the sky is orange under the bridge and blue above.
I love the gray wig / backpack combo.
I love the simplicity of this machine – and the giant buttons.
Some see yarn, I see endless possibility and hours of entertainment.
Something about this reminds me of a David Lynch movie.
Our weekly shopping trip to Costco.
Wearing a beer bottle hat.
The top drawer of my desk.
Not the best way to start my day.
I love how you can see my kids and me reflection.
I love little knitting projects like this one.
Looking up through the stair well.
Concave reflection in the rear view mirror of a old school bus.
This was a lucky shot since the heart shape disappeared moments later.
This building is as great on the inside as it is on the outside.
I hope she does OK today. She was very excited to wear these.
Blowing out Daddy’s birthday candles.
Taking a running leap.
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)
The gun has a face.
I love how they all appear to be looking at me.
Mmmmmm…. Warm cinnamon-y apple-y goodness!
I’m not sure I would call them “gourmet” but they are pretty darn delicious.
Kirby & Holloway Family Restaurant
I absolutely love these leggings.
The Chinatown Gate through the rainy windshield.
I had never heard of this guy until today… apparently he’s THE BIG THING right now.
Another of my former toys. Thanks for saving it Mom!
It’s amazing how greasy it looks.
I love a good neon sign.
The bears are alive!
A portion of the side of the WasteMasters dumpster outside my office. You can actually see the fuzzy silver reflection of my car.
I’ve always thought it was somewhat strange that grass can be rolled up like this.
Two little deers. (or is the plural of deer just “deer?”)
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.
Elmo on the floor.
I realized after everything was glued down that the dog sled guy is sledding on grass.
My view from the top of the slide.
I love the light in our bathroom.
I love this.
I love this.

The Pep Boys… Manny, Moe and Jack
They were yummy.
I love seeing my son having fun and interacting with his friends at Cub Scouts.
Suddenly I have a craving for Doritos…
We were all pretty freaked out about these clouds. We thought for sure a tornado was going to form at any minute.
Yes, the lawn caught on fire a little bit over on the right…
Parking garage signage
I love those toddler thighs!
My son made this tonight when I told him today was the 100th day of doing my blog.
Ribbons for each race hanging in front of the white wooden box that held all the cars.
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 the smiles.
The “cake” was a big hit. Rice Krispie Treats stacked to look like a game of Minecraft.
The best part about this store is getting to and from the rooftop parking.
Sleeping next to the dinosaurs.
It doesn’t really look like it, but this photo (one photo) is perfectly split in two visually – half shutter, half brick.
I absolutely love the views down these orchard rows.
I’m not sure if this is a really great idea, or a really crazy idea.

I love finding faces in ordinary things.
Bright yellow ceiling and curved light fixtures at the Lego Store.
My son kept trying to figure out how much it would cost to get that many Legos.
I’ve been in bed so much this weekend my back hurts from lying down so much.
He’s probably thinking, “I wish she would get that camera out of my face.”
This was a perfect way to end our vacation.
Origami heart bookmarks.
This is only about 1/5 of the entire wall – all covered in hand prints.
All of the trophies were made out of Duplos.
Almost 3/4 of the way through book four.
Unfortunately my son had already returned his shoes when I took this photo so his are missing from the group.
The back of the clown’s hat isn’t all that exciting to look at.
Almost nobody on the road.
I love how neat and organized and at the same time a bit haphazard and disorganized these bundles are.

My sandwich is kind of anemic looking, but it was still pretty yummy.
Stripes and Elmo
As you can see, my mom loves frosting.
Sometimes I bring yarn to work just so I can squeeze it all day.
Don’t they look appetizing?
What a wonderful view.
Screen shot of one of the many videos I took.
I wear these shoes almost every day. I puffy heart love them.
The view on the way back down. That tiny speck along the path is my son way up ahead of us.
Holding his robot and waiting in line for his turn to show me what he programmed it to do.
The same building rendered two different ways.

Tastykake display at my local Wawa.
Just roll, snap and wrap!

It was a wild and crazy night at our house.
My little girl walking to “school” (daycare) all decked out in hearts and carrying her new purse.
So strange to be using my headlights at 5:20 p.m.
I love toddlers in tights.
The view down the race track before the big event.
On top of the world.
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 love all of the lines in this photo – from the bridge in the background, the boardwalk railing and shadows.
Totally captivated by the toy display.
I still haven’t put away the silverware we used at Thanksgiving and Christmas.
I love the little pop of green on the right.
It’s nice to see this played with again.
Shiny high tops
What is the stuff in the center of these? Frosting?
With windows like this it’s no wonder our energy bills are so high.

99% of these were mine when I was little.
I love the natural light in this photo.
Elmo being visited by the angel Gabriel… or maybe it’s the angel Grover… or the angel Cookie Monster?

I love this place
The back of a delivery truck.
Good and evil.

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 Salvation Army guy kept looking at me like I was crazy.
arms and tummy…
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.
Running across the bridge with her shiny cape.
If it wasn’t for the numbers and the variation in brick color, this totally looks like a mirrored image.
Community meeting nights are the perfect nights for junk food.
I really love this composition.

I love these little squishy legs!
Nothing like ice cream before dinner, right?
