Day 288

Ryan found an owl feather, but I'm not gonna keep it, since it's illegal to own any part of a bird of prey. A photo will have to be good enough.

Day 287

My breakfa...wait. What time is it? My lunch. English muffins, strawberry jelly, and of course, butter. Chased with a tall glass of milk. Mmm.

Day 282

I got these new curtains. They were so cheap, that I was worried they'd look stupid.

Day 281

Ryan found this very old tripod for me. I love how it's not at all flimsy, like so many things that are made these days.

Day 280

On the inside, looking out.

Day 278

Aren't you all lucky, you get two photos today! It's very strange that being VW bus lovers, we have never really gotten into the Grateful Dead. Don't worry, I am now a little bit obsessed with them, and currently have this song stuck in my head.
*These stickers were found on and in our '65 "Thirteen window deluxe"...

Mmm, you are just so red and juicy. *pluck*

Day 276

What's my name, what's my station oh, just tell me what I should do. I don't need to be kind to the armies of night that would do such injustice to you. Or, bow down and be grateful and say "sure, take all that you see" to the men who move only in dimly lit halls and determine my future for me.
And I don't, I don't know who to believe, I'll get back to you someday
Soon you will see. If I know only one thing it's that everything I see
of the world outside is so inconceivable that often, I barely can speak. ~ Fleet Foxes

Day 274

I wuv him.

Tuesday, August 16, 2011

Day 273

I watched him tip the box over, and then proceed to make himself quite comfortable on it. (Didn't notice the small cat until I took this!)

Day 272

My heart isn't in taking photos today, so here's a boring one of my calendar. I do think about time often. Above it, through it, behind it... all the ways time can be perceived...

Day 271

Leetle bird. I want to catch him.

Day 270

These are from a plant which a dear, dear friend gave to me almost two years ago. When she gave it to me, it was very small, in a pot, and I loved it. It sat in the pot on my porch for many months, and produced beautiful flowers, but something felt wrong. I could hear it begging me for more room to grow. Finally, I planted it in the ground near my porch, and it went crazy!! The plant sent new shoots off in every direction, and bloomed and bloomed and bloomed. I could almost hear it singing with joy at it's new-found freedom. Every time I see it, I think of my friend who moved very far away, and remember her fondly.

Facebook Peeves

1. People who whine about the same thing every single day, and don't do anything to make their situations better.
2. People who write "lol" after EVERYthing they say. Please stop. I'm pretty sure nobody actually laughs out loud that much. (Okay, maybe some people do. Ignore this.)
3. People who write things on other people's statuses when said people are having a really hard time: "Everything happens for a reason." I can't help hoping that something fantastically horrible happens to people who say that. And then I might post the same thing for them when it does. Yes.
4. People who use Facebook like it's Twitter. Oh, wait. That's me.
5. People who go around "liking" everything, and NOT COMMENTING!!! I want to know why you like it, and what you like about it!
6. People who post 50 youtube videos, one right after the other. Nobody's really going to watch all those, okay? I'm not going to watch any of them, and I'll most likely click "hide" beside your 50th post.
7. People who post cryptic statuses. If you're going to talk about yourself in a public place, freaking talk. Otherwise, don't say anything. Nobody wants to play "20 Questions". (Okay, maybe SOMEbody wants to.)
8. People who ask for advice, and then come up with a reason for every single suggestion why they can't do it. If you don't really want advice, don't ask for it!!
9. People who assume that if you post something like, "Trying to potty train my 2-year-old" means that you are asking for advice on how to do so. Nope. Just mentioning it. Twitter, remember?
10. People who make the stupid twitter # thing on their facebook status... you're on facebook. If you want to make the # thing, go tweet.
That is all. I am going to go live real life for a couple of hours. But don't worry! I'll be back to tell you all about it! And maybe whine. And after I whine, I'll say "lol" so that everyone knows it's really not too serious.

Day 269

Yum, yum, yum, yum, go tomato plants, go!

Day 268

I pulled off the metal part, and now have to scrape the rest. I would never put something like this on my car. Am I going to hell?

Wednesday, August 10, 2011

Day 267

No sleep last night. Heavy things on my mind. Time to go inside, now. I hear the baby yelling. It's 5:30am. This is going to be a long day.

Tuesday, August 9, 2011


I look at your face, stare at it, peer at it, study it, and wonder, where did you go?

Day 266

Mmm, they're like candy.
