So remember back in ‘11 when I was redoing my room, and I posted photos of the various developments? If you didn’t, you can check it out here, here, here, and here.
(Not that you have to.)
Well, recently, I have been adding some more fun touches to my room.
The first was inspired by some sticky jewels that my mom had. They were my favorite colors, but I wasn’t sure what I should do with them. And if I couldn’t find anything to do with them, she was going to get rid of them! (OH NO!)
So I stuck them in a random pattern all over my fan. And I LOVE it! But then the little sticky jewels started falling off and sticking to the floor, so I had to reattach a WHOLE bunch, but I think I have most of the ones that are going/did reattached. Basically, I hope that there are no more that are going to fall off.
I love quotes. I wanted some way to put quotes on my wall, but I am not that great at fancy handwriting, and I don’t always care for typed-up quotes (they have to be just-so). I can’t remember where I had the idea, but I got a bunch of old magazines from work and cut out TONS (and I mean TONS) of letters. Then I found several quotes I liked, and started taping up the letters. I am not totally sure about the outcome. What do you think?
All the quotes
Top – from “The Valley of Vision”
Bottom – can’t remember
-Booker T. Washington
Top - American Authors
Bottom right – Charles Spurgeon
This was Meiling’s lunch yesterday. She let me try one. Not bad at all. But somewhat weird. Just the textures.
So yesterday I had some new books arrive in the mail, and I had one arrive the day before. I am still expecting one more, but I thought I’d show you these anyway.
I needed this one for school.
And this one for school, too. It looks pretty interesting.
And this one is for school, too. I haven’t looked at it yet.
And this one I bought with some of my Christmas money. I have another friendship bracelet book, and I thought it was time to upgrade and get some fancier stuff going on. I’ll let you know how it goes – there will be photo updates!
Sorry I didn’t post last week. So I’ll post two this week to make up.
Last week we got about a foot of snow. And it was about 8*F out, too, which makes it really hard for this girl to stay inside and not take photos! But when they were saying “frostbite in less than 10 minutes” on the radio, I figured I should stay inside.
So here are a few I grabbed from the front porch and windows.
Love the sun!
Aren’t all the lines from the wind blowing cool? And the light. OH. THE. LIGHT. Photographers like light.
Happy New Year, everybody!
Long time no see!
Sorry ‘bout that.
One of my New Year’s resolutions is to post more often. So I have determined to post at least one post a week. Not too daunting, eh?
So to start: today in pictures. I (finally!) brought my camera to work, and took some shots while I was there. (And I had a little fun. So don’t mind the hair-product-pictures, o.k.?)
So these start in the morning, and go through the day.
P.S. What do you think of my silver and turquoise nails?
Dusk is falling. It’s one of those snowy dusks, which translates into everything just turning blue. It’s really pretty. Especially when viewed while drinking a dairy-free o.k.-sugar mocha. Yes, I have FINALLY cracked the code and found out how to make a (see above). Maybe I’ll tell you sometime.
Now I am (should be making) dinner. And I should be posting about our lovely Thanksgiving (and my first 5k!) and our Winter trip to Branson (we got snowed in), but instead I feel like just posting what’s up.
Today I gave Lucy a shave. May seem like an odd thing to do, what with the cold weather and all, but she was in desperate need. So I gave her a good shave. She still isn’t talking to me. And by that I mean that when I call her, she doesn’t come, since I called her when we were cutting her hair, and she resents that. Or thinks that I still have the clippers hidden somewhere.
I also baked a pumpkin that I had, cause it needed to be cooked so it didn’t rot. Last time I cooked a pumpkin, Lucy helped herself to some, and it turns out she LOVES pumpkin. And I found out that pumpkin is good for dogs. So this time around I gave her some. She wants more. But man was she begging while I was working on it. Those little puppy eyes. Oh-so-cute!
So now I am cleaning up the kitchen and prepping dinner (fish). And rocking out to music. Everything’s better when done to music.
And my mocha’s cold now. Oh well. Still tastes good.
Off to dance and cook,
