L is for Late

Here I am, late again. But that is nothing new. I have always been late. I stay up late and I love to sleep in late. Some days, I work late and so I get home late.

Today, I should be writing all about the letter N. But I am not. Because in typical Me fashion, this post is all kinds of late.

K is for Keepsake



{48/365}
My mom's old silver lipstick case. They just don't make them like this
anymore. The tiger's eye keeps the mirror closed and also moves to push the lipstick up.


May 4, 2010: The Beat
I have had this button/pin since I was a teenager...and if you know who The Beat were then you know just how long ago that was. ;-)


February 8, 2010: hidden treasure
Here is another little treasure I have hidden away.

I bought this awesome necklace/pendant quite a few years ago. I think I may have purchased it from one of the local street fairs but I really cannot remember that far back. It is surprisingly in great shape, the similar candle holder I purchased at the same time, sadly is not.


February 7, 2010: Little city in wax
Years ago my parents took a trip to Israel. This is one of the things they brought back for me. I love candles and find it hard to burn them when they look so pretty. At least I don't have to worry about anyone trying to light it though, as the wick fell out years ago.

J is for Journal

*notebook*

*my notebook*   {315/365}


I have blogged before about what keeping a journal means to me.

Even though I prefer to write down my thoughts, lately I have been trying out some of the iPhone journaling apps that are currently available. My favorites are Day One and Momento. I love how I can add a photo to an entry and also include little extras like the weather or a little map of the places that I've been. It's all so neat and compact and modern and new, but for me it just doesn't compare to a handwritten paper journal.

Using different pens, the way my handwriting changes, adding little doodles, all of this is what makes a journal so personal to me. Much more personal than a mobile journal. Well at least for me. I feel that when I hand-write my words, my thoughts are more personal and there just seems to be more of them.

Do you keep a journal? What do you prefer, mobile app or written?

I is for Interestingness

It's that time again. Time for me to share my most interesting photos. Well...the most interesting according to Flickr.

I must admit that this post is mainly due in part to my own curiosity, but I hope you may find it interesting as well.

This year, I am pretty happy to see that my top 72 most interesting photos have changed a bit. Sure, some of these photos have been part of my most interesting for many years. But this year there are quite a few new photos and there is even a new top interesting photo! Yay! It is kind of rare for my top photo to change. Usually once a photo makes it to the top of the interesting list, it stays there pretty much forever.

So here's this year's count down:

  • 16 photos of cats
  • 15 photos of feet
  • 12 photos of yarny things
  •   8 photos of food

G is for Granny

G is for Granny squares (and sometimes circles).

One of my current crochet projects is a year-long mini granny square blanket. By the end of the year, I hope to have enough squares completed to cover my bed or at least enough to cover myself.

I really do hope I finish my mini granny square blanket. My track record on personal crochet projects is not very good.

Blanket in progress...

Mini granny squares

You see, a few years ago... 

Okay, I will just say it. Back in 2010 (that's 4 years ago people!) I started crocheting a granny circle blanket. I'm still working on it. Well, that is if you call sitting in a bag in the back of the closet, working on it. Then yeah...I'm working on it.

F is for Fisheye

Last Christmas, I got iPhone lenses for my iPod Touch. One of my favorites is the Fisheye.

Fisheye = Fun.

I call this one "Oranges in my Kitchen."

Cloud. Tree.
