187.365: the life of a kiddo

189.365: the remote photographer

After my month of color, I decided to dedicate this past week of my project 365 to black and white.

Mondaythe straight lines. I observed the beauty of these lines on the highway. It was Independence Day and we were searching the outskirts of the city for fireworks. Alas, a ban was in place on account of the drought. Boo.
Tuesdaythe kid in the pool. Evening– it’s the only time the sun isn’t plotting to kill us.
Wednesdaythe life of a kiddo. Andrew completely gave up the opportunity to nap and instead jumped on my bed trying to do somersaults. He failed.
Thursdaythe zinnia bouquet.While the boys tried to trap ants in circles of chalk, I picked these zinnias. most of them were on their last breath and the stems had already put out more stems, so I should see a few more blooms soon.
Fridaythe remote photographer. Andrew likes snapping photos of himself. I have to chase him in the viewfinder, as he often leaves the frame.

31.365: re-shoot!

I did a re-shoot of one of my favorite products in my shop, at the moment. All that yellow & gold! Big sigh! It’s currently on sale, so snag it while you can. I don’t know when/if I will make more of these.

THREE days left til Christmas Eve! I have THREE gifts that are not complete. One hasn’t even been started! Fortunately, the other 2 are at least 75% complete. I hope I can finish both up by the end of the night, so that I have at least 2 days to work on the last, then I can do all the baking I need to do before we leave on the 24th (we’ll be staying at Grandma’s house that night). Forgive me if I don’t post anything but my Project 365 photos for the next couple of days!

My baby turned 19 months old, today.

A different type of Rudolph

I went to pick up Nathan at school and came home with a Rudolph the red-nosed reindeer-boy! I kind of love Pre-K.

He’s a jack of all faces. See 2 more on my flickr page, [[here]].

Since this seems to be the week of Rudolph, here is our favorite rendition of the classic “Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer” song, Jack Johnson’s version:
