Here I sit with all the lights out and TV turned down low… hiding from the trick or treaters!
Earlier I heard fireworks our side so I had a go at a few pics! I'm happy with what I got but unfortunately I forgot to charge my battery so I was on limited time! Lol!
Anyway I patched the ones I like the best to make one big fireworks festival for day 304!
Now… must turn off pc… it emits too much light and the monsters outside might see and know that I am really here! Nothing worse than a pack of 6 year olds on a sugar high banging your door off the hinges!
My grandma always told me to remember which was which in day light savings time…
Spring forward and fall back! I could never get it right but I do now… I just forgot it was today! lol!
I love to fall back and get that extra hour of sleep!
It’s so weird typing day 300 and something! I guess soon the year will be over… I think I have managed to do what I wanted with this project… I mean making the year longer somehow or stretching it out. When I look back at a day, any day… now I remember it! That’s pretty cool! so mission accomplished!
5 week birthday!
I thought it was 6 but I got it wrong! Lol! 6 weeks would have sounded a bit better but now as the photo has been taken and processed 5 weeks is just as good! :~)
My vegetarian birthday anyway! I'm not too sure when I get my official tee shirt and diploma but I don’t’ care I'm in it now and that mean that’s what I am! A vegetarian! It’s been easy too! I thought I might miss certain foods but I don’t! Not yet anyway! But I don’t feel like I will miss them. I'm really happy with this and about doing this! It feels like the right thing to do!
I have to give a lot of credit to Jenn.
Jenn you really made me think… I think you said you were ten years old when you became a vegetarian, and if a girl that young decided eating animals didn’t feel right and decided to stop doing it… well I figured you were very smart and also right. And if you could do it then so could I!
I had thought of it many times but never got motivated to just do it. I thought it would be too hard in many ways and was never willing to commit.
The other thing that pushed me over was a movie I didn’t see. That sounds funny doesn’t it! but its true… the movie was a documentary called “Food Inc.” and I didn’t see it because I just couldn’t face seeing how animals were treated. And I know about some of it and what happens but just tried to put it away in my head and forget. Now I have watched a number of documentaries that have sad things in them and people being treated so badly and things that are really hard to see but… I watched them… and I wouldn’t watch “Food Inc”
So… that’s it! I’m a vegetarian and I think it’s great and I feel really good about it!
Thanks Jenn for your help and the movie “food Inc” that I didn’t see!
Hubby saved the day!
I wasn’t born in a barn but…
Yesterday I think my head was stuck in one! Lucky for me my lovely hubby did take photos and gave me the choice of any of them to use for day 301!
I love this shot! I think it’s really brilliant! I love all the lines and texture in it. I think it’s from a perfect angle and I love the shadows too! Top class shot Michael! This is why I always tell you to keep taking photos! You’re a great photographer!
Thank you Michael for saving me again!
Day 300! I can’t believe it’s day 300!
Seriously where did the time go?
Now the big countdown is on!
I didn’t think in starting this I would ever get this far! Now that I'm here it’s weird how fast it went! And only 65 days to go then it’s over and gone…. it’s weird! I don’t know if I will do another 365 or not… I might… I might not! :~) whatever I really have enjoyed this project! I think it’s safe to say I'm going to see it through to the end now! :~P when I finish this will be the longest project I have ever had and done! I'm really bad at starting projects and then taking a break… for maybe months before I get back to finish. So this will be a big finish! A milestone I guess! :~) well any way woo hoo! Day 300!!!!!
I collected my photo from the tourist office today. they are closed for the winter now and wont open again till spring. The woman there is so nice! She told me I could bring another photo in spring to exhibit! Woo hoo!
So the big 3-0-0 was not to bad of a day even though we both still have colds and all sorts of out of sorts!
Tonight a movie…”Mary and Max” it’s very good if you haven’t seen it it’s worth a look!
One more thing.... to anyone that might be reading this...
Introducing yesterday’s friend…
I think that says it all! :~)
It rained again today… and I had to go to immigrations. Its usually the same man… gruff and angry looking and not at all happy with his job and not at all trying to hide it!
Today it was a woman and she was really nice! I am still so sick and felt awful. I could just barely get out of bed.
Anyway she was nice and we talked about everything… from bad knees to dogs and cats! Lol! It wasn’t bad going there today! but that’s all I got done… I came home after and went back to bed till…
Look this up if you really want to know what happened next… Assassins… just on Wikipedia. And NO! I'm not an assassin! So with that in mind it’s not been a bad night after all!
As for the guitar… well I have no idea what so ever what it has to do with day 298 but I saw it sitting in the corner and thought it would make a cool pic. Soooo!
I can’t play it by the way…
Nurse and patients…
Of course since I was at the Dr. office on Friday we both now have a cold! This was the scene for most of the day in our house… both of us on the sofa under the blanket and the cat nursing us back to health!
It still raining… not as windy but now it’s cold instead! Winter is here I think…
I have things to do tomorrow. Immigration department is one! woo hoo! I can’t wait to get my citizenship here then no more immigration stuff. I'm not complaining it’s only once every 5 years but I just don’t feel like doing it tomorrow.
Also I have to check a few other things. We are thinking of moving… the stairs here are just a real head ache for me with my knees and it would be so much easier in a bungalow. I’m always afraid I'm going to fall down the stairs and maybe my knees will last longer too. So we will see how it goes and maybe find a new house!
Rain and wind…
It never stopped raining today… the wind never stopped either. I didn’t get anymore autumn cleaning done… I had a nap instead! Oh well! Tomorrow is another day!
Not much else… I'm a bit blah today… but the day is almost over so my blahs will be too!
It’s a jungle in here!
I almost forgot about my shot as I have been trying to do some tidying around the house. You know going through things and getting rid of stuff we don’t need. Spring cleaning in autumn! I’m always backwards! What can I say…
It’s amazing how much stuff we acquire that we don’t need! So I have a box that’s getting full fast! I will continue tomorrow on my quest!
I have decided to do a Project 365! Here is just a bit of info behind every pic.
I have an Etsy shop now! Check it out here!!!!
