This is not what I had in mind but when I started taking pics I changed my mind!
This would have turned out better but I was balancing me and the camera on a pile of dirty laundry because the lantern was on top of the wardrobe! I can also tell you it’s not very easy to stay still for 7 seconds! My first attempts were with the tripod but that had no results as I managed to balance better than it did! (That is truly amazing!) I was just about to get the perfect shot when the cat kicked the door down and let the hall light in…
I lost it totally on my reposition… my arms and legs were shaking and the sweat was like a small stream!
I guess it’s not too bad all things considered!
And no doubt I will hatch a much better and easier plan and really get a good shot of this as I really like the way it looks!
My other idea was something to do with time flying by… it is the last day of November and I do not know where this year has gone to… with only 31 days left in this project I also can’t believe I have taken a pic everyday (with one or two exceptions due to my mental defects and slight insanity!) I'm not sure if I will do another year or not yet… but I have had such a great time with this year in photos it will no doubt go down in my personal history as the longest completed art project EVER!
The countdown is on!
Just a random shot with the phone and jelly lenses. Was going to put it up last night but we were under attack! Kaspersky was anyway! It was quite an event! I have never been part of a cyber attack before! It was almost exciting!
Both laptops went bonkers and wouldn’t do anything then we both had to restart and download updates… typing it now it seems to have lose at least a bit of its original thrill! Oh well…
I'm happy to report everything is running fine and dandy now or if you prefer dandy and fine!
I love coffee!
I had coffee last week and I forgot just how much I love it!
I had the urge for coffee last night so I bought some. Makes sense to me!
Anyway got home and set up for coffee… I have no idea how much to use… maybe I'm a bit slow but I swear I just don’t know!
So I think…
Hum. I’ll have a look at the back and see they must give some sort of directions, I mean it is making something and measuring something…. You would think there would be at least a recommendation of any vague sort!
There wasn’t! Not a clue! NO directions at all!
Hubby is the brains of the family! “One Spoon”
Brilliant! I would have never got it! really… never… :~(
I'm planning on having another cup later this evening! And maybe I’ll have two if I'm feeling like going totally mad! ;~P
I was at my sis-in-laws house today… the same one I had coffee with last week. Michael and I were at her house last night as well and we got to see sis-in-laws grandchild. He is 8 months old and just as cute as can be! Big blue eyes and a really happy bubbly baby!
This pic is of the baby and his mother… she is my niece and included in the pic eating a really yummy looking ice cream is her brother…my nephew who is 6 years old and has to be the smartest 6 year old I have ever met! He can spell words backwards! He is just lovely!
I hope that made sense!
Michael is the youngest of 11! And as I was the only one in my family I get confused on how everyone is related when trying to explain it! so… I do hope that made some sort of sense!
I had a great time today! It’s cool to have a family and get to know them better! I really love how my sis-in-law and her daughter, pictured, are together! It’s really so cool to see them watching out for each other and to see how close they are and the strong bond they have. I love to see that in people! I wish I had had it with my mom but I had it with my grandma instead!
My niece is a natural mother! And a really good one at that! I can see it in her… with this little cutie in her arms she lit up like a Christmas tree and never stopped smiling!
Anyway… it’s amazing to see such a big family and the dynamics of it… not all talk but hey that’s family! I don’t talk to my mom or dad so I can’t imagine with 11 siblings and something like 42 nieces and nephews! Phew! That’s a lot!
Sis-in-law is so very welcoming and she has a warm and comfortable house and great loving family! I never though I would have people so close to brothers and sisters! It's so cool! :~) woo hoo! I don't think I am an only child anymore!
Things seem to be looking up and I'm feeling good. I'm so glad to have a pic that means something after a bit of a dry run over the last few days I'm so happy with this one!
Looking for a bright idea!
This was what I came up with!
So… it’s bright…
And it’s an idea! Which is more than I have been doing!
Ok I know I said no more cute cat pics but… I was stoned and hadn’t taken any other photos! And he looks so funny and cute with his little tie one! Well at least he did last night! ;~P
This time I promise it’s the last one!
I watched a tv show that we recorded awhile back today. It was about assisted suicide.
Terry Pratchett: Choosing To Die You can watch it in full here if you like and have time.
It was very powerful and I thought about it most of the day. I can’t help but wonder about things like this… maybe I'm morbid or maybe I think there is something to this, being able to choose.
My Grandpa and my Aunt both killed themselves… Neither were ill but both suffered from depression. Which is an illness I know and today I have thought about the way I look at depression as an illness. That’s the part that I get confused about the most.
I think if a person is ill and in pain they deserve to have a choice… but what is pain? Does it just have to be from an illness and physical? This is what I asked myself today…
The conclusion I have come to is this…
Nothing so important as life or death should be taken lightly or with little thought. My family members most likely would not have done what they did if they took more thought about what they were doing. I think they were feeling hopeless and helpless at that moment. And a moment can and does pass.
I think it’s only in Switzerland that a person can choose to die even if they are not physically ill but rather "weariness of life" is the reason. This I am not sure about. But again I just don’t know.
I am not here to judge anyone…
I don’t know what I would do? Even if I were in pain so bad I don’t know if I could take my own life. I don’t know… I guess there are so many factors in things like this one could really never say for sure unless they themselves were in that situation.
I think it should be a right to choose if you want to die but I think it’s a very serious decision to make and should be done with the professional people and really only if it is a last hope. But in saying that I don’t feel I have the right to impose what I think are the limits to anyone. I truly cannot say something about any other person other than myself. I have not walked in anyone else’s shoes and I don’t know the pain others feel and how they feel it.
I thought the grave yard was the right place for a photo today and on my way home I stopped by and sat in the car and the rain looking at all of the people that had gone. I couldn’t help but wonder how they might have wanted the end of their life to be different. I wondered if anyone there would have taken their life if they had the facilities and the right to do so. I wondered…
This is just a link with information… I hope no one here ever needs this or knows anyone that does but if they do I hope they have the option to do so even if they chose not to I still hope they have the choice to control their life and death.
It’s getting dark early now and it’s raining all the time and I am tired of taking pics of things in the house so I decided to change it up and take a pic of me! woo hoo! That was really using my imagination wasn’t it?
I was so uninspired that I took the pic and didn’t even bother posting it till today… a day late.
I think I'm running out of steam on the last leg of the race! Maybe I’ll get some mojo before the year is over!
That look of love!
I was going to put another pic for the day but when Michael was petting Murphy and the “I love you” looks started I couldn’t resist! I know it’s a tiny bit blurry but I just love the look Murphy is giving Michael! So pure so loving and so totally devoted… it’s just too too cute!
So yet another cat pic! Oh well what can I say!
I found another amazing album called "Kinshasa One Two" from Damon Albarn! Check this out! Wow it's super cool and wow what talent he has! This is the first song on the album so I can't wait to hear the rest and All proceeds will benefit Oxfam's work in the DRC!
Have a listen and enjoy!
And I'll really try to make this the last cat shot for the year! :~)
My boobs and I
I have or now I guess I should say I had this glow in the dark paint… very cheap we found out!
Anyway I had this idea and tonight I didn’t have any other ideas so up to the bedroom with the glow in the dark paint! Sound like fun to me!
Me and my very able and willing assistant did a great job!
But it turns out the paint was so cheap we could only get about one shot out of each glow up I’ll call it… that’s when I had to get the paint to glow by leaning over the lamp looking like a total fool but having fun! This was the best we did and I guess for the night it’s not too bad. I did not take this pic I think you have guessed already but that doesn’t mean that the camera isn’t glowing now along with the bed, lamp, walls, doors, and who know what else! I’ll leave that to how good your imagination is! ;~P
The stupid stuff seemed to glow really good on everything but me! oh well! I think the cat may have got it too! I'm sure when we go to bed it will be like a nuclear fallout zone!
Anyway next time I’ll get better paint as I have many ideas for this one and this is only a start!
So…. That’s it! Me and my nuclear glowing boobs!
Thank you to Michael, my able and willing assistant! I’ll pay you later for your difficult and stressful work! :~)
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!!!!
