Buttons. Happy first day of September!

I took pictures of the blue moon, including ones where I played with the shutter speed and movement...

Bonus shot: what the moon actually looked like:

The caramel cheesecake flavor, which I give 4/5 stars, was actually the first one I tried, back on February 11. But that was before I was rating them, so I "had" to try it again. Is yummeh.

I went outside to weed the garden and Alex had mowed my name into the grass.

I made this blueberry muffin recipe with gluten-free flour, and they were delicious.

Alex and I ran an errand and saw a frog when we got back. This is the first week in a while I took a picture every day!

August 24

Another rainy, uneventful day of job-hunting. I enjoyed driving in the rain until it got hard, though.

I made gluten-free peanut butter muffins. Tasty.

Bonus shot: Alex is doing the music for a short film. He showed me the film, and then started dropping in various soundtracks, just messing around. He ended up doing almost an entire temp track using completely inappropriate music for what it was supposed to be (a romance, and instead he put in music from things like Willy Wonka and Nightmare Before Christmas). It was hilarious, and mind-blowing how much power music has in movies.

I was tired and in bed falling asleep when I remembered to take a picture for the day.

I found this amazing drawing I did when I was 13.

I took a shot of the sunset on one of mine and Alex's walks.

Alex discovered this huge, freaky spider built a huge spiderweb in our backyard.

I don't think I'd journaled in years, but this day I spent two hours and ten pages writing in my journal that I bought in February because I randomly decided I needed one.

Everything looks cooler on a dress form, including my boring old sweatshirt jacket.

I made some jewelry for myself.

August 11

Photobucket

Alex and I squinting in the flash. We were at the beach to watch the meteor shower sometime between 2:30 and 4:00 AM. I saw over 20 meteors even though we were only there for a little over an hour and there were times the clouds covered most of the sky. It was fun. :-)

Bonus shot: this was going to be my picture for the day until we went to the beach.

Photobucket

And this was going to be a bonus shot, a picture of my favorite kind of ice cream. It's Harris Teeter's "Take the Cake" flavor. It has frosting in it.

I watched this over a few days while I sewed. I actually liked it better this time, maybe because it didn't have my full attention, and despite how bad or not the rest of the movie is, Will and Elizabeth's wedding scene is one of my favorite movie scenes.

I took pictures of some jewelry to post on my Etsy site.

I went in the discount store Ollie's and got this copy of Frankenstein, mostly because it is just so pretty, for $3.99.

August 2

Photobucket

I didn't actually take a picture this day, but I did get an Avengers folder, which I took a picture of the next day. The flash reflection lined up conveniently.

August 1

Photobucket

I took some self-portraits in a medieval costume.

I was going through my fabric scraps to throw some away when I decided to organize all of my fabric by color. Yeah.

July 30

Photobucket

I took some random shots in our yard and had fun processing them.

Bonus shot: the leaves are green in real life

Banana pudding milkshake: 2/5 stars. You might really like it if you love bananas. To me it tasted pretty good at first and then was boring.

July 27

Photobucket

Meh, I'm forgetting about once a week now. This time I remembered, but it was after I had gone to bed and was comfortable and sleepy and I just didn't care enough to get up to take a picture.

July 26

Photobucket

Experimenting. We were going to use this and a matching one at our wedding, and then I started to hand-wash one and the paint started peeling (it's technically a candle holder).

Bonus shot: I put my wedding dress on my dress form to take pictures of it.

I thought W might be a challenge but it was easy (see description for July 23). This is the wizard staff Alex made for our wedding out of a big tree branch he found on the side of the road.

July 24

Photobucket

There are plenty of slightly squiggly t-shapes in the Spiderman mask Alex made years ago. See description for July 23. Yes, it's wearing an Indiana Jones hat.

So...I took pictures Monday-Wednesday, and then I had a blonde moment in which I thought I had already transferred them to my computer and formatted my memory card. So I took make-up shots. Each shot had the shape of the first letter of the name of the day that got deleted.
