I was going through my photos on my phone recently and realized I have so many on there just being ignored that I thought I’d have a little show and tell session today for a change of pace. It’s also my way of gearing up to do the August Break, an idea that I stole from Cable Arms (who just had a miscarriage a few weeks ago and deserves as much love as she can get). Although, you may be wondering what it is I really need a break from since I barely post any way. To that I answer: I don’t need a break, but I need a fun project! So I’ll be partaking in this little photo-taking exercise for the entire month of August, during which I’ll still post my not-so-regular posts. Woohoo! So onto the neglected photos from my phone…
I took this the day I found out we lost the baby. I was holed up in a hotel room while Tim was out doing inspections. Took was not all that pleased with being in a hotel, but I needed him with me. He survived.
This was taken in Maine when I was visiting my best friend and home town during my recovery from the D&C. I love Lupines so much. They were a little glimmer of happiness in between the dreary fog of the coast (and my head).
This was my view for 4 days from my best friend’s cottage. And that’s me in the water trying to cure my poison oak. Can you see me in there?
These are downtown Providence. Oh how I love this city. I had to leave it because I was miserable there (which I’m beginning to realize had nothing to do with where I was, and everything to do with my head), but I miss it so much. I spent an afternoon by myself walking around downtown and it was so wonderful (despite how awful the weather looks, it was actually quite warm). Someday, I’ll be back there.
On the bus to the Boston airport and my last chance to get Dunkin’ Donuts. Mmmmmm….Dunkin’ Donuts coffee.
Some more Took photos. He’s my favorite subject because he’s just so damn handsome. The second is at Tim’s mom’s house in Southern California. He had it rough.
This was my first attempt at a tart that I made for this lady and her love. We met while I was down there and it was just so wonderful. The tart was pretty good, too.
Have I told you about the $100 ice cream maker I got off of Craigs.list for $15? BEST. PURCHASE. EVER. I used to make ice cream for my job back in the day, and this makes it almost as good as that. This is my first attempt at coffee chip, and it was so good.
Anyone know what these are? Tim planted them in our front yard and we have no idea what they are, but they’re so interesting and beautiful.
And finally….I cut my hair and had it highlighted this past weekend:
I call it my break-up hair because my babies keep breaking up with me. Why do they have to keep doing that? It’s not very nice.
And that concludes today’s portion of Show and Tell. Thanks for bearing with me while I post a bazillion pictures, but they just give me so much joy, and this here blog could use some of that.
