Did you ever keep a diary?
I did, for several years, when I was a teenager. Most of what I wrote was about boys, or how unfair my parents were...or rather, how unfair I thought they were. Now that I'm the unfair one, I have a slightly different perspective.
I'm too lazy to write in a journal these days...but I thought it would be fun to keep a daily photo diary. I decided to give it a shot for February, and then see if I want to keep going with it. I'll tell you, it is not easy to get a great picture every single day, so please excuse the ones that are so-so...like this first one, for instance.
Great start to the month: Didn't see Junior Goo Shoes' friend's bike in the driveway, and ran over the tire. Yeah, that's how I roll...literally.
Most boring Super Bowl game ever? Yes! (Sorry, Peyton). Thank goodness for good friends, commercials, and Mini Nachos.
Early morning snowfall.
Six more inches of snow today. Lazy girl's snowman. Junior Goo Shoes says, "Hey, I wanted to wear that hat today!"
Lunch with one of my oldest friends, who is in from Michigan. Nothing says "New Jersey" like diner food. Some diners say it better than others, though.
I "Heart" a baking day while watching Opening Ceremonies for the Winter Olympics.
Hanging with Mr. Goo Shoe's childhood friends from Brooklyn...and sipping a Blue Hawaiian...or two.
Sadie, relaxing on a Sunday afternoon. It's a dog's life.
Went to Trader Joe's to get something for dinner; came back with tulips. Needed a spring "fix" bad!
Another day, another diner. Had lunch with three friends I've known since childhood. Can we really have known each other for so long? Did I really eat that entire salad?
Acorns again for lunch? This guy sits on my deck railing just about every day having his lunch. He must work nearby.
Nor'easter came up the coast, and left another 12 inches of snow. I cheated a bit and took this early the next morning, when the sun came out, and ice was gleaming on the tree limbs.
Packed up my "Have a Heart" shortbread cookies for my boys, and my bags for Florida! Happy Valentine's Day!
Hello, Florida! Solar therapy badly needed.
House-hunting in Florida. Ah, yes, I could live with this as my backyard view.
Pina coladas at the pool always taste better when it's snowing at home.
Wondering how I can pack up one of these palm trees and bring it home with me.
Came home to NJ to find 3-foot long icicles all around the house.
Sadie says, "You're not the only ones sick of all this snow. How come you didn't take me to Florida with you?"
An interesting juxtaposition...'nuff said.
This cardinal looks especially dashing on the white snow.
Most unusual sighting at Home Goods ever. Any guesses as to what it is? A giant planter? A bar? A playhouse? Pricetag: $2000. Who wants one?
"The dog ate my homework!" No, REALLY!!!
Hey, this place is like Grand Central Station! Oh, wait, it IS Grand Central Station. Walking through on my way to meet a friend/former co-worker for lunch.
In New York City two days in a row? Note to self: Must have head examined. Meeting a friend in Times Square for lunch.
How much wood does a woodpeck peck...oh wait, I think I've got that wrong. Never mind.
Morning sun light in the living room.
There's one thing that I learned from taking a picture a day. If you open your eyes wide enough, there is always something worth photographing! Now, if only my photography skills were better...
And with that, I say, Buh-BYE, February! So sorry to see you go -- NOT!
Best of the Weekend
