365 Day Project: 89, 90, 91

This past weekend was full of highs and lows. With anxiety and the types of thoughts that I have the highs and lows are emphasized. The painting night with the women in the kindred was great and it really made me miss painting and drawing. Plans changed and I ended up not staying the night but neither did anyone else which understandable upset our host. It’s still nagging at me to the point of tears and I feel like one of the worst people that were there. The painting was my 365 Day project image. Unfortunately, us girls weren’t done until almost midnight so with it being so late I didn’t post the image.

This also brings me to a bad flashback of having to give things up for a motorcycle. When my husband was becoming part of the motorcycle club he needed a bike. The only funds that we had were the ones I put away for my bachelor’s in graphic arts. Instead of getting my degree (and settling on my AAS), he got a bike. It’s taken a long time for me to get right with what I gave up and the why. Well, I’ve been putting money back (I do mean little by little) for some geckos and I was ALMOST at my goals when the bike reared its ugly head. One of the men in the kindred offered to help get the bike road ready and said, ‘the first one’s a freebie.’ Let’s just say $140 fix is not a freebie. I paid off half of the bill and plan on paying the other half in a week. I hate owing money. Sunday’s photo was one I really didn’t put much thought into. I took the photo and went to bed crying. So, no. I didn’t post but I took the photo.

So here we are at today. I could barely get out of bed. I’m upset that I’m still giving up so much for him to ride and feel like I’m really getting the short end of the stick here. I did get joy out of seeing my husband sit on his bike and I’m feeling bad about feeling selfish (lots of emotions happening). I got in the car this morning and my husband had bought a little lego type of character. With a little smile, I went to work in a semi-better mood but was late. I thought I would incorporate him into my day somehow.

I managed to do my evening errands and exhaustion is setting in. I have coffee with the kiddo then I need to get things together for paint night with the ladies from the kindred. Tonight I’m posting from my phone. This is what temptation looks like.

365 Day Post: 85

I’m mentally exhausted and need to finish prepping my portfolio sample presentation for the job interview on Thursday. I’m wondering if I should pick up new spring semi-casual attire for the interview? I worry about that later but for today’s photo my son handed me his new socks and I had the idea to use this little lost kitty for the image. Happy Tuesday Y’all!

365 Day Post: 84

I took it easy on myself today and almost fell asleep when I remembered I didn’t post the image for today. I have come 84 days now without missing a day and I’m not about to start now. I may do it a few minutes before the midnight deadline with only sparse copy but I made it (I’ll usually go back and edit the next day).

Today’s photo was done and to tell you the truth I have NO IDEA what these little guys are. My husband got them for me (it was a mystery box type of thing) and reassured me that they have been around for a while in the TMNT world. I’ll take his word for it as I’m more of a Batman girl.

After a beautifully anxious night, we decided to stop for breakfast and my husband pulled this little guy from his pocket. I almost wanted to give the project up for today and rest but he pushed me in the right direction. The lost kitty looks like he’s contemplating a great deal sitting on toast with grape jelly below.

Happy Sunday Y’all!

365 Day Project: 81

I don’t know what’s going on with WordPress. First my comments then I’m not able to view certain blogs in my reader section for a few days then they appear. It’s so frustrating. Tonight’s photo is brought to you by the toys at the self-checkout and my son choosing one. I think this is supposed to be one of the evil Siamese cats from Disney’s Lady and the Tramp. Now that the errands are finished and he’s tucked away eating ice cream I can get this posted and try to figure out what to dish to make to pass. Happy Friday Y’all!

I went outside! Then the wind was all, ‘Nah girl. I’m fixin’ to make it unbearably cool and knock over your toy.’ I found the perfect location. A drain with water running in it had the light on it and it looked great. That wind made it chilly and it was powerful enough to keep knocking over the figure. I didn’t want to chance losing it down the drain. I made a promise to my son that he can have ALL the toys and legos after the project was over. Secretly, I’ve been giving some to him so my husband doesn’t notice a slew of toys.

Tonight’s post is a bit late. I took my husband to the library to get his card. There I learned that they put puzzles together in their free time. I had a wonderful idea that would help me cope with my past but that will be for another post. Tonight’s photo is of a character figure that my son threw in my purse and I discovered it. Sitting there…begging for a photo-op.

Well…I’m hosting a ‘boys’ night. My son has a friend over, do boy things, and eat pizza. I’ll leave out the burping contest winning results (you’ll thank me). I thought it would be a great time to pull out a ninja turtle. I can do better but I thought this was cute.

Last night my husband and I were invited out to drink at several St. Paddy’s night events. As usual, we opted out because we are getting old and drinking all night isn’t as appealing as when we were young. This morning however I had made plans to have a traditional Irish breakfast with another couple that would include the ‘Dublin Bloody Mary.’ We showed up, got a message that they weren’t going to make it. I’m just going to leave out the weak explanation. My husband and I enjoyed a great breakfast but the cancel (4th time in a row) put me in a bummer mood.

For today’s photo, I decided on happy upbeat colors and decided books for the happy reading lost kitty would be great. And since I had such a heavy breakfast I’m off to make a salad. Happy Sunday Y’all!

I waited until after Friday errands to take and post the photo and I wish I hadn’t. I feel like I’m being rushed and I can’t figure out why. Tonight’s post was taken while we were out for dinner before going to the grocery store. I have a coffee date with my son in the morning then shopping for a painting project for the kiddos at our kindred’s Ostar celebration, so I’ll be busy. Pretty sure my project photo will be late tomorrow. Here we are lost kitties racing. I’m enjoying the bright color palette that these lost kitties figures offer.

I wanted to get my project photo done so I can just go and lay down. There is only so much people can handle (emotional, mental or physical) and I need to numbingly lay and do nothing. I did put a little more effort in the image today though.

Take care of yourselves and happy Wednesday!

I didn’t do much in the styling of this picture. There’s much more to it than the legos that were put together. This is what it looks like when I’m functioning with anxiety and depression all while trying to seem like everything is OK. I tried to do some editing and even like the grainy vintage effect that I was able to achieve. The complimentary palette almost translates Harry Potter but not quite.

Is anyone else thrown off by daylight savings time? Or do you even participate in daylight savings in your neck of the woods? I brought a figure to work with all intentions of taking my photo early but it never made it out my bag. Tonight’s photo is more or less a kitchen helper image. I do, however, feel I need to step up my game so I’ll be doing some research into photography tips and tricks to really make the images pop. I’ve been proud so far of the photos that I’ve been able to capture but feel I can do more.

I have been super lazy. Well, I did get on the treadmill so that counts for something. This weather maker moving in is making everything dark and gloomy out and I’ve opted for looking up lego sets. My wishlist item is Hogwarts Castle 71043. Love love LOVE this set and I need the challenge and the calming effect building these sets have.

Today with it being dark I thought I would play more with lighting and using candles. My son was kind enough to let me borrow his lost kitty wizard for today’s photo. I think I’m really going outside my comfort zone and learning more aspects of lighting and trying tricks photographers would try. Thinking outside the box has been a comfort and to tell you the truth I’m going to need another 365 Day project to complete when the year is up.

I would like my local weatherman to stop using the words, ‘weather maker.’ I’m now fully annoyed with these words as there is another winter storm moving in. Yet again. Trying to get Saturday errands all done on a Friday when I’m already exhausted from work and trying to help my son feel better was just a lot to tackle. Sadly, my husband and I might have to cancel plans with the kindred tomorrow due to road conditions. But, here we are and I felt like doing some experimenting with light. I love the effect the candle gave the Roblox blacksmith. What do you think?

Today I was SLAMMED with work. It was almost as if they wanted to stress. Instead, I let it pile up as they intended, told them it will get done when it gets done, and focused on tasks at hand. I had my phone interview after work. I don’t think I will move on in the process due to my lack of skill being used where I’m at now but I’m ok with that. Tonight, I was super happy with the playful photo of the lost kitty toy. Unfortunately, the ice, snow, and windchill temps are making driving difficult. Tomorrow is going to be super busy but let us start with tonight’s photo.

The color palette I chose is obviously a custom one but how wonderfully summer-ish bright the colors are!

I have been in a slump since lunch. Maybe it’s the week of stress so far catching up? Maybe I’m not challenged enough (I kind of call BS on that)? Or maybe, it’s my soul that’s tired. I have a phone interview to prepare for and making notes for both technical questions and obvious general questions. I would like to get my hopes up but I’m going to err on the side of caution and keep more realistic.

I’ve been refreshing my coding skills and WOW! If you don’t lose it you definitely lose it. Made dinner and cake to thank the hubby for working overtime so I am wearing down. This little lost kitty image helped brighten my day. I tried choosing a monochromatic palette but wondering now if it qualifies.

I’m running so far behind but luckily I remembered to turn the crockpot on this morning. Yup, it’s that kind of day today. Tonight’s photo I went with the, ‘if I fits I sits’ mentality of cats with this lost kitty figure. The complementary color palette is bright and inviting.

Off to the next thing I’m behind on. Have a great evening Y’all!

365 Day Project: 63

I had a wonderful idea looking into my box of toys but it would take me into the women’s bathroom at work. A number of thoughts and doubts came into my head and I almost talked myself out of it. I thought a little longer and decided that during lunch not many people would be in there. I was right. I LOVE how this dramatic scene unfolded. I think THIS one is my favorite so far.
