They call me Mellow Yellow

More Yellow Week.  Did you know there’s a flickr group for this, too?  I didn’t think I cared much for yellow until I started seeing some of the striking photos people are taking. I bought myself flowers two Fridays ago and they’re still hanging in there.  Pretty impressive lifespan for a supermarket impulse buy. There […]

730 Feet: a retrospective

I never mentioned Project 365 last week.  As in, I finished it.  As in, I’m done taking pictures of my feet.  As in, I no longer have to consider how my socks and/or pant cuffs will look on camera every morning as I pick out my clothes. These are some of my favorite shots from […]

Good Morning, Fall!

Here in New Jersey, it’s not easy to tell that fall has arrived simply by looking around. Much of the scenery is still bathed in the verdant greenery of summer. When we walk to the bus stop in the morning, there are not yet piles of dead leaves for us to trample with a satisfying […]

Welcoming Autumn

Fall officially arrives at 11:48 Monday morning.  I was resisting the end of summer, but now that I’ve had a few weeks to get used to the idea, I’m really looking forward to the next season.  It has always been my favorite, after all. Autumn is honeycrisp apples, pumpkin bread, and grabbing a sweater on […]

Taggity tag

I completely forgot about this – I have been tagged several times in the last few months. Most recently it was the lovely & talented Cat, but I’ve also been singled out by Connie, Iris, Jeanne, Holly, and Lunes, all of whom are no less lovely nor talented than Cat 😉 Hard to believe a […]

Color Week: Blue

So many things I feel like chatting about, but I must, by necessity, keep quiet. There’s a fairly long to-do list today that can’t be postponed. I’ll be in Philadelphia this weekend, and am not prepared at all. I wish I were not half asleep. Allergy Boy had a rough night, and by extension so […]

Color Week: Red

Well, I have to admit, I didn’t realize just how much people were going to like Boring Office Guy. I mean, I found him really funny, but I’m his mother. I told him this morning about the 7-year-old who was watching his video repeatedly and who wanted to call Aidan with complements despite being a […]

Color Week: Orange

I have roughly ten minutes before the little one and I have to head off to Kindergarten Workshop – our school district’s excellent, parent-run, 3-morning program that helps prepare the kids (and the parents!) for Kindergarten. I went through it with Aidan three years ago, and now it’s Eamonn’s turn. Before we go, though, how […]
