27. Sun – It was cloudy almost all day, but I did manage to catch a couple of beams of light coming though the blinds midafternoon
28. Through – The view through the garage door to the backyard
Alternate stripes photo. Not a swatch for an actual project, though I wanted to see how these colors looked together. Considering a mittens pattern where I would combine these dark grey and dark blue yarns.
Perhaps four of them was overkill, but I liked my corners. I thought about building out the puzzle a little more, but 500 tiny pieces just wasn’t happening. I had a couple of other ideas in mind, but a cold snap has started to blow through SE Ohio and I didn’t feel like dancing with the single-degree temperatures outside.
From top to bottom: 17. Ready 18. Shadow 19. Delicious
To clarify, I haven’t fallen behind on snapping my daily photos – still going strong in week 3 (so sad!) – but rather on posting them here. Must stay the course!
I dug out my Caps sweater (go Backstrom!) for Thursday’s photo prompt “Ready” because after half a season of being locked out, the NHL was finally ready to get underway. Although tonight’s season opener didn’t go quite how I would’ve liked – the 6-3 loss to the Lightning hurt – I”m glad hockey is finally underway.
I took and rejected a number of photos for Friday’s “Shadow” theme, but ultimately snapped a quick shot of my library book when I got home. Apparently, I’m on library probation because I have to check out with a librarian for the first two months instead of using the more convenient, self-serve system. Oh well, I’ll survive somehow. Fortunately, most of the books I check out these days are ebooks so it shouldn’t be TOO much of an inconvenience.
Last, but not least, cousins and their kids descended on my grandmother’s house this afternoon, so I baked up another batch of peanut butter cookies so they’d be around to nosh on. I don’t know of anyone else sampled them, but I continue to find them to be delicious!
15. An Ordinary Moment
It was strangely difficult to take a photo of an ordinary moment, at least for me. I have a tendency to overthink the themes and then fail in the execution anyway. That’s why the ordinary moment I ended up choosing was my bedtime reading ritual. The problem is, reading doesn’t put me to sleep and I end up staying awake until 2:30 in the morning. Oops.
This isn’t actually the photo I submitted as my FatMumSlim photo of the day, but I like this pic a little bit better. The grocery stores in suburban Dayton are probably confused by me flitting through their aisles snapping pictures of food that I’m not buying. C’est la vie!
This was was the official shot I chose for my FMS entry (the peppers were used for a different photo-a-day). There are 42ish years worth of National Geographic magazines scattered throughout this house. She doesn’t have every issue, but I’m pretty sure there’s at least a token entry from every year since 1970 (or earlier – I haven’t torn the den apart lately).
