Day 119 my puppy pillow

{119:365} doggy pillowThis photo is kind of cheating a little bit. I actually didn't take it, but you know....this is my project and I am ok with letting 1 photo in that I didn't take. It was taken with my camera, I'm in it, and its my doggy!!

My husband thought we looked cute asleep together, however she woke up right away. LOL it took me a little longer, I wasn't too happy when I woke up cause I don't like anyone touching my camera but the pic is too cute, so I decided it was perfect for today's pic.

Day 118- memory book


I had to snap a pic of this today. I actually found it a couple of months ago but I put in my nightstand and I was cleaning that out and I started to look through it again.

what is it? good friend and I kept these little journals for each other back in our 20's. We lived across the U.S from each other, as a matter of fact we still do but now we have things like the internet...msn and skype, but back then this is what we had. We documented all the shows, parties and trips we went on.

They are so funny to read through. She still has mine and of course I have hers. Here is a little excerpt from hers.

Ode to the Otter Pop
You are so cool
you make me drool
I remember your charms
oh I wish I had arms
you smell so nice
mmm different flavored ice
Id suck you right up
Oh my sweet otter pop
HAHAHAHA, I never said we were sober in our 20's.

Day 117

{117:365} stormy weather

This pic really is how I felt today.

I baked up some oatmeal cookies to make someone I love feel special! lol yeah, well. I baked them and they were so damn good, I started to pack them up and I couldn't get my foodsaver working right, I got so flustered cause I needed to get them out before the post office closed, I ended up breaking cookies, then finally at 4:30 I figured out the foodsaver and got them packed up and headed out to the post office, of course before that though....I started to cry over my cookies breaking. lol yeah, yeah....It's pms, who the hell cries over broken cookies? I guess me!

So, I saw how awesome the sky looked on the way over, and by the time I got home it was a full storm. I really should be more careful, I took this while driving, from my cellphone

Day 116- day of music

On days that I get bored I do what makes me feel good. I grab some headphones and listen to music. I decided to make a couple of playlists, it's been awhile since I made one.

These aren't the headphones I normally use but they were the ones in arms reach

Day 115 ICE CREAM!!

{115:365} I scream
Today was probably one of the more beautiful days this year. In honor of that I wanted to have an ice cream cone from Foster's freeze, and I did! I am 95% over my sickness and that makes me so happy. I am still coughing with just a touch of congestion but wow, nothing like before. yay me!

oh, and yeah...these cones melt so damn fast, it was like a race to see if I could eat it before it fell all over the place. LOL

Day 114- in death there is beauty and photo ops

{114:365} "full of Grace"
april232510 140
april232510 136

I was out and about and I spotted a small cemetery, it was actually in a really small town out here near me.

I think cemeteries are great for exploring and taking photos, not so much to be buried at but to each their own, right?

I really want to go to old, OLD cemeteries just to wander around and see who's the oldest person, what things did people leave when they were visiting. It's very neat to see all the things people leave, it makes you wonder about the story behind the items left.

Day 113- reading

{113:365} just reading

I just bought, City of Bones, I have been wanting to start this series for some time now, I finally went and got the first book, and so far I like it. It is very Buffy the Vampire-esque, but I don't think that is a bad thing. lol Its not just based on vampires though...its all demons.

Boring pics, cause I didn't want to be bothered with worrying about it, I just snapped. lol

Day 111 ding ding

{111:365} come and ring my bell

come on and ring my bell!!!

I love my bike, I am dying to go for a ride, however its raining today, but I did take the bike out to clean her off. My bikes name is bleu.

Bleu is not the bike I wanted. I wanted a beach cruiser with pedal brakes cause I didn't know how to use gears and hand brakes. I didn't ride her for a couple of months when I got her. I kind of threw a hissy fit about it but felt bad that I sounded ungrateful but I had picked out a bike I really wanted for my bday and my husband thought this one would be better. Its been at least 7 years since I've had bleu, and I love her. I was able to conquer my fear of hand brakes and I can use the gears now. :)

My bell is an American Flag cause nobody carried any Wonder Woman ones.

Day 110 pink treat

I joined a new group cause I wanted some fresh ideas for this 365 project of mine. I love how many fun creative groups there are on flickr. I found one called sixty-four colors....and yep, its named that cause they pick a new color each week after each color in the 64 crayon box. I loved that box growing up,you know the had the cool sharpener on the back. lol

Anyways I don't normally buy cookies or things like this at the store, but there I was shopping for some stuffs and I saw these pink frosted cookies and well the color this week is, carnation this is my take on it.

{110:365} cookie?

Day 109 cracks in our foundation

{109:365} I know that I should let go

My fingertips are holding onto the cracks in our foundations,
and i know that i should let go,
but i can't.
And every time we fight i know its not right,
every time that your upset and i smile
i know i should forget, but i can't

lyrics from Kate Nash- Foundations

Day 108 trix aren't just for kids

{108:365} trix

Since I don't drink milk if I want cereal it has to be eaten dry....I actually don't mind it at all. Then again, I rarely eat cereal but I was wanting a sugar snack. lol I know not healthy but I'm ok with that.

Day 107- trapped

{107:365} get me out of here

had me fighting for air

I am pretty much happy with how these pics turned out. I need a remote for sure, something about setting your timer and running naked into the shower that doesn't really look or feel right. lol

I wanted to take photos of how I have been feeling all week and I think I did a good enough job.

Day 106

{106:365} Fence Friday?
fence in color

april1610tc 109
april1610tc 117

I am going stir crazy. I feel like utter shite too. I had a side effect issue with the advair the Dr. gave me, it cause me to basically become so nauseous and get sick with everything, even smells of things. oh its been awful.

I feel like a prisoner in my own home. I go out but I am so weak its pathetic. I start to breathe like a man that smoked for 50 years. :( I know it will pass but when will it? its not fast enough.

I snuck out and took some pics.....this drained the life out of me. lol luckily I like the rose shots.

Day 105- census 2010

{105:365}  I count!

I thought I would fill out the census today. Its all rather random and I do hope that it goes to helping what our cities needs. lol I am not sure why giving my husband's tribal number counts towards that but I filled it out anyways. lol

Early today though, I had to go see the allergist because my regular Dr. thinks that all this might be starting with allergies. I really liked him he was very informative and I felt comfortable, like I can ask him anything and be told clear answers. He took a listen to my lungs and was very concerned that I am still so congested so he gave me advair and singulair, that he thinks will help clear up my lungs. they can't start to skin test me until I am all cleared up. :( it bummed me out that my lungs are still way too filled up and I am not healing as fast as I normally do. so, hopefully this will help.

Day 104 click

hi little fella
{104:365} click it old school

I am super duper excited. I almost typed y'all. haha I am NOT at all southern. I sound like a valley girl if anything. hahah that cracked me up, sorry had to write that here.

ok so I am excited, why you ask? cause I have 2 rolls of film! I have been wanting to shoot with film for some time now. Its been so long since I have used my slr, that I am not sure that I will even remember how to use it.

Several years ago, I wanted to get a nice 35mm slr but I didn't have money for one, well my mother in law had a super bitchen one, she used it all the time when her sons were playing football, she let me borrow hers and I fell in love with it. Well, I ended up finding one on ebay for a decent price and I scooped that right up. I took that thing everywhere. its funny too...I hold it now and its SO heavy, how the heck did I take that thing with me. Right now I complain about lugging my dslr and that thing weighs nothing. I knew I was going to shoot a pic of my roll of film and then woah, one of my contacts also shot a pic of rolls or film (her's was awesome though. I read her info and she said she is part of the 365 Community and they are going to have a summer of film type challenge! I joined right away. Its just what I will need. some inspiration and encouragement to get that ball rolling. yay!

Day 103- sick

{103:365} the sick  station

I have pneumonia. and there isn't much to do when you are that sick. I've tried to be a human but that didn't last long, I ended sleeping. I haven't even been able to veg out with some movies but that would just put me to sleep. Now that its night time, I do feel a bit better than I did yesterday. I just wish it was gone. I hate being sick. and usually get made fun of by "the man" he says I'm always sick. :( I don't think I'm more sick than anyone else. I guess I should just keep quiet when I am. lol

Day 102

{102:365} tiny little raindropspattern
who cut you?

Had to go to the Dr. today for breathing treatments. it felt so good after. Also we discovered why I am having this issue with getting sick like this. Its allergies! grrr So now I have to start seeing an allergist, which I guess I am ok with as long as we can stop me from getting this sick again or often.

while I was just about to leave the Dr. office a huge thunderstorm hit, I am talking thunder, lightening, hail, it was nuts. I came home and took these pics of the little raindrops.

Day 101- serve

{101:365} serve your city

oh such a wonderful day. Started off early. My city along with 3 churches decided to get together and clean up the city. Through various projects. they cleaned and did all sorts of service. It was so nice to see people out there helping.

I was on the photo team so I got to follow 1 group and watch them transform a few gardens for a woman's shelter and they also did some painting for their rooms. it really looked so nice after.

(the only bummer is I ended up finding out I have pneumonia. blah)

Day 100! woo hoo

{100:365} need some butt wipe?

oooh today is a milestone in this little project I am doing! 100 days! wow, that is huge if you think about it. at least 100 photos have been taken by me. of course I have taken more than that but yanno what I mean.

today was a non eventful day, starting to feel really sick, I thought it was allergies but nope, I feel yucky. Today was errand running day. Needed to hit Costco, and why do I go on a weekend, what a dummy, that place is nuts.

Anyways this is my super creative but really not creative photo. I call it my photo of how I feel like ASS(paper). haha I am a dork. oh and you can kind of see the dog trying to get in the way there at the bottom. lol

Day 99- baby? run your fingers through my hair

{99:365] run your fingers through my hair

I'm not feeling well at all today. I have a feeling the same that happened to me in Nov/Dec has happened again. I had gotten a sinus infection and I just thought it was a cold or allergies, which turned into bronchitis which turned into walking pneumonia. I can't stop coughing and my body hurts from it. I have a lot to do today and this weekend. plus who the heck wants to be sick? I do NOT.

All I want right now is for my man to run his fingers through my hair so I can fall asleep.

Day 98- we are just fires in the night

{98:365} "I'll bring the matches"

I knew today I was going to try a photo shoot of matches on fire. I have been suffering from the worst allergies I have ever had, I have a hacking cough that is just wrong, so yeah....was it smart of me to have my face 5 inches away from burning matches? nope, haha. oh well, we all suffer for our art! ha!

The inspiration for these pics was from the song, Fires by Band of Skulls

Baby, Darling, Doll Face, Honey
No I don't mean to cause you worry
It's only hands in my pocket
And the Queen on my money

Did you know I've been wanting you?
so leave your locks on the latches
If you bring the water
I'll bring the matches

'cause we are fires in the night
We are fires in the night
Let us bathe you in our heart
'cause we are fires in the night

Come on get up Romeo
Don't you know what the time is?
It's the fall of rock 'n roll,
That's what the news said

Did you know I've been wanting you?
so leave your locks on the latches
If you bring the water
I'll bring the matches

'cause we are fires in the night
We are fires in the night
Let us bathe you in our heart
'cause we are fires in the night

we are fires in the night
we are fires in the night
let us bathe you in our life
we are fires in the night

Day 97- chillaxin

{97:365} relaxing out on the patio

That is just the kind of day I am having. Its almost perfect really.

I woke up with a desire to pack a bag and head out of town, well out of the country really. I would love to be in Mexico right now, on beach, in a hammock, sipping something with tequila in it.

Even though I love resorts I really loving going to the most random and out of the way places. I would love to just travel some of the roads of Mexico right now. I however can't do that so...I said eff it and I sat on the patio most of the mid morning/afternoon. its not the same but yanno what? I can find happiness in the small things.

I was proud of the patio blinds I hung up last weekend, since this was my view I decided to snap a photo. :)

Day 95- no sign of life

{95:365} No sign of life

I got a bit excited today when I found this egg. I couldn't find the nest anywhere though. I wanted to see the little bird.

Day 94- the hunt

{95:365} waiting to be found

My Easter was filled with memories. Memories I will never forgot. Some great and some very bad.

I don't want to focus on the bad here on my very public blog. I rather just talk about the good and fun things.

Spent the day with my family and as usual, had a GREAT time. Good food, good company, good laughs...basically a GOOD time!

Missed my Grandma a little bit, she loved watching her great grand kids hunt eggs. My Grandpa was there but he looks so sad. I don't imagine I will have him much longer. I for some reason feel he will die of a broken heart. He misses her more than any of us.

After the the things that happened on Easter night, I have a lot to think about. My future, my life and what is the next step. Its hard being 37 years old knowing.....huge change is not far off. Life.....some days its just hard. *sigh*

Saturday, April 3, 2010

Day 93 change

{94:365} light

Nothing special about this pic really. The light bulb that goes in the little lamp on my nightstand burned out and it was time to change it.

here is something odd, I went to buy some new bulbs and there were boxes of 38watt, I haven't seen that before....weird.

APRIL FOOLS (ok, I am the fool)
