Why, hello there. What have YOU been up to? Me? Nothing. Nothing much going on. Nope. Definitely nothing to see here.
I realized recently I needed to catch up on organizing and posting my Project 52 photos — in fact, I’d gotten six weeks behind. I’d love to be posting these here at least once a month, so let’s see if I can do any better in the future.
Here’s what I photographed during weeks 6-12 of the year:
The wine was medicinal, see? I’d thrown out my back pretty badly and couldn’t take any good pain killers, so a glass of $4 merlot from Earth Fare had to substitute. I thoroughly enjoyed it, despite the circumstances.
On Valentine’s Day, CW and I decided to cook a delicious meal at home instead of going out. It started with opening our bottle of olive oil we brought back from our trip to Rome. That is some good stuff, let me tell you. We also made lasagna and drank much wine.
[8/52] My Favorites
I didn’t manage to take a photo with my “real” camera this week, but this iPhone snap is a pretty nice representation of a good evening at my house. Everyone is snuggled up on the couch together, nice and cozy, doing some reading. The pets occasionally like to stare at CW with a mildly frightening degree of intensity. This photo also depicts a formerly impossible, now more common, but never unappreciated situation: cats and dogs, living together peacefully, only inches apart.
[9/52] Downtown Opelika
Oh, look, it’s a cheesy back-and-white photo of a run-down city environment. Photography cliché alert! Took this one of the back of my favorite coffee shop after breakfast one day. I don’t know.
[10/52] A run on the first day that felt like spring
Just as the title describes. It was gorgeous out and I couldn’t have been happier to be running outside. Don’t worry: I’ll be moaning about the excessive heat soon enough. Spring doesn’t last very long, you know.
[11/52] Rain, Sun
Taken this morning in my backyard. I woke up a couple of days ago and these shrubs outside our bedroom window had just exploded into bright pink blossoms and I have to say, it made me very happy. Today there was a lovely mixture of raindrops and sunbeams, and I am sure that’s a metaphor for something, don’t you think?
