Moving My Blog

I'm moving this blog over to a new site:

Please visit there going forward for all new blog entries. Thanks!!!

Challenge Day 2: Taxi

Our car is in the shop at the moment, so I taxi'ed it over with Nevan to his school this morning. I took two pictures and he refused to smile in either of them. He even promised me in the second photo he'd smile but then didn't, leaving me to smile all by myself while he has a reluctant half smile. Little sucka butt!

Also, I swear to god his hair doesn't typically look like Lurch as much as it does here. I don't know what is going on there.

Lastly, I'd like to thank Kristin for the hat inspiration this morning. I never wear this hat, although it is my favorite. It makes me feel really paranoid for some reason, but I braved it this morning because I want to be like K!

Challenge Day 1: Home

The challenge is to take a photo of yourself in a completely different location every day, Monday through Friday of this week.

I took an extremely blurry photo of Dave and I in the kitchen. Exciting location, don't I know it! Then again, you can't see the background. My bad.

Spring Evening At Home

I kept forgetting to take my camera with me when I went out :( The only thing I could think of was to see what I could take off of our balcony. Sorry for the boring photos... it's all I could do! It was strangely overcast and evenly lit, so everything came out kind of blue green, even when I adjusted the color.

Spring is on its way here in Australia:

Miniature Solar Panels

Sometimes it's not the photo, but the way you look at it.

Nature is far more advanced than our own technology. Thinking about the millions of years it took for nature to come up with this perfect invention reminds me of one of my favorite quotes, courtesy of Carl Sagan (click for more awesome Sagan quotes):

"If you wish to make an apple pie from scratch, you must first invent the universe."

One of the gifts my team gave me for my going away was a pair of really nice pj's. Totally random sounding gift, I know, but two of the lovely ladies on my team picked it out and managed to find one of my favorite shades of purple - violet. I adore my new jammies, and I will think of today, my last day at work, every time I wear them.

Special thanks to CR and Tina and Susan for picking out my new favorite pj's! I may even wear them out... that's how much I likey!
