project 365: week eight

DSC_0301I have to confess something: My favorite thing to photograph are dogs. I spent all week taking pictures as usual, and when I sat down to edit them, I had to choose the best of the dog ones. I couldn’t help myself. This week’s collection of pictures is all from the weekend–admittedly, it was a tough week. It rained all day every day, and I was busy at work. I thought pictures of my weekend would be better than pictures of my desk… because that’s mostly all that happened. Continue reading

project 365: week seven

This week was really a quiet one. I flew home from Nashville on Sunday and had to bury myself in work for a few days to catch up. Jason has been really sick, so most of my time has been spent quietly: reading, cooking, working, and even some painting. It’s been a nice little respite from the usual hustle and bustle. DSC_0323I made Minestrone with lots of veggies and little tiny pastas in it. Continue reading

project 356: week six

I have a lot of pictures this week. I’ve been in Nashville since Wednesday night, and my flight home leaves in a few hours. I took a few photos earlier in the week, but I had to eliminate all of the ones from home and just use Nashville ones because I couldn’t choose any to get rid of. So, here’s a little recap of my trip:DSC_0296Sunrise from the windows at Jane’s house on Thursday morning after Mona woke me up at six in the morning. You can see most of Nashville from up here.

project 365: week two

I’m discovering that my goal of one photo per day is kind of crazy annoying–some days I’m struggling to find a picture of anything, and other days are full of opportunities. So, rather than focus on publishing one photo per day, I’m just hoping you’ll get a feel for the week through my photos. Deal? Deal. DSC_0271This week, Chatham Habitat hosted 12 students from Cleveland State University through Habitat for Humanity’s Collegiate Challenge program. I got the honor of taking pictures of them all week–including this silly one.

DSC_0222On Tuesday, I started my day with a kale, apple, blackberry, lime juice that ended up being this beautiful purple color. It was also pretty delicious.

DSC_0003Downton Abbey started back this week–with a two hour long episode! I might have squealed a little when the scene with the dog and Lord Grantham came on–I love it! (Also, this was taken last Sunday, and I promise my Christmas tree has been taken down now.)

DSC_0279Saturday was Jason’s birthday and he wanted to go out for a hike. We passed a farm on highway 86 and this guy watched us pass.

DSC_0310Jason got some new threads.

DSC_0298And a delicious gingerbread/cream cheese icing cake! Happy Birthday, Jason!

project 365: week one

This year, I’m going to do my best to take a photograph every day. I’ve been practicing for the last few months of 2012 without sharing (or being held accountable), so in honor of the new year, I’m going to give it a shot.

DSC_0122On Tuesday morning, the sky was sporting a chevron pattern in honor of the new year.

DSC_0145We broke out my new ice cream maker on Wednesday and attempted strawberry. It still needs work.

DSC_0156Julia Child and I made a roux!


I realized at work on Friday that my sweater, scarf, shoes, phone case, earrings, and bracelets were all the same color. Since then, I’ve been noticing how many teal things I own–It’s my color for 2013, maybe?

DSC_0154Leeks are my new favorite thing.
