October 17-23 (Photo 365)

November 14th, 2011

Well you know what they say- “The road to hell is paved with good intentions.” I have a LOT of pictures to share in order to catch up on my Photo 365 project- but I am determined to do that THIS week. Last week got a little derailed when I crushed my fingers, so any time I had to use the computer and type it was related to my business and not for fun and games. (I won’t even get into how far behind I am on emails.)

Anyway- two of my fingers are doing much better and the black finger is still black and swollen, but not as bad- so it’s healing and for that I’m happy. Now- without further rambling- I’ll pick up where I left off on the Photo 365 pictures.

I finally took the plunge and bought myself an iPad.   Technically, I bought it for the business as I write recipes on there and can use it easily in the kitchen- not to mention it will be great for showing potential business customers pictures and such if I meet with them out and about.  

It has proven to be really handy thus far and I know that it will only become even more so in the future.

This little piggy went to market….  

Well this little piggy is something I saw while at the grocery store.  He’s made from marzipan and I suppose you could buy him whole, but the store had other ‘piggies’ sliced into pieces to be bought by the ounce.   I’m not a huge fan of marzipan in this way, but I find it quite entertaining to see a whole pig made out of one and then slaughtered and sold off.

This was a pretty sad day for me.  It meant that vacation time was officially over and that mom and diddy were headed home.   This is a screen shot that I took of their flight home that I was tracking. 

The shot was right before they landed in ATL. 

The good thing was that I had a lot to do to keep me busy once they left- which made being without them a little more bearable.

It is a rare day that JJ and Mister M. sit still together long enough for anyone to get a picture.  The fact that they were lying so close  to each other made me smile and although it didn’t last long- it was a moment that brought a lot of joy to my heart.   Now if I could only convince them to do this more often without tumbling and chasing each other- life would be a lot more peaceful in this household.

I opened a bag of Pikes Place Roast this particular morning and decided that I’d lay the bag on top of my grinder before grinding the beans and take a picture of it.

Often when I go to Starbucks- I’ll get a cup of Pikes Place Roast and add a splash of milk and nothing more.   I don’t always have to have the ‘frou frou’ coffee (as my brother calls it).  Don’t get me wrong- I love a good specialty coffee, but sometimes, the only thing that will do is a good strong cup of coffee with a splash of milk.

This is one of the last pictures I have of Mister M. on the “Walk like an Egyptian” sofa.  We now have a new sofa (much needed) and we’ve ordered a gorgeous chair that should arrive next Thursday.   I love this picture because it looks like Mister M. is smiling as he’s lounging in the sunshine.

October 23-

I gave myself a pedi on Sunday.   The weather was perfect, so I decided to sit outside and while I was out there, I pulled out a bottle of  OPI and went to town.  The color doesn’t really show well in this picture- but my toes are a beautiful eggplant color..  

Oh and have you heard?  OPI is coming out with a Holland collection in the Spring of 2012.  I’ve seen a little preview and there are several shades I have my eyes on.

    Thank you for the pictorial walk through your life. These offerings from you “inspire” me in so many ways to similarly document parts of my walk through life. I just may!! ( with your loved ones, I think it is time to begin the countdown to your next shared holiday!!)

    That’s a neat and helpful new piece of technology you have , Lori :) I loved seeing the pictures. I hope you are healing well, and pain goes away.
