1000 days ago I started this blog. I’ve fallen behind (more and more frequently) but I’m still posting a photo for each day of the year. Maybe I’ll make it to 2,000, maybe not. But for now I’m pretty happy to have made it this far.
And for your viewing pleasure, here’s a visual summary of the last 999 days. Happy scrolling…
Cookie for President!
I love how the out ring is so much darker.
My view from the top of the slide.
I think it’s funny how the thing that’s really growing in this photo is a weed that will eventually get pulled out.
I’m a giant!
On our way to the playground.
I love all of the lines in this photo – from the bridge in the background, the boardwalk railing and shadows.
I love a good neon sign.
The toy my son is resting his head on was my favorite stuffed animal when I was little.
I’m so happy they opened a second location and it’s near my house!
Maybe it’s the blue eyes?
The tutu has swallowed her legs!
Screen shot of one of the many videos I took.
Pantone Universe at Lowes!
Halfway done and another half to go to finish the year.
I love this view.
It’s amazing how greasy it looks.
Not the best way to start my day.
Again, thanks go to my mom for saving so many of my old toys!
Waiting for the right zipper (those are two options hanging around the top.
It’s amazing to me that something in nature can be so shiny and metallic looking.
Wearing a beer bottle hat.
Parking garage signage
Hopefully tomorrow will be better
Good and evil.
I don’t know why, but it makes me so happy that my daughter likes these toys (Calico Critters) – they are adorable.
Nothing like ice cream before dinner, right?
Symmetry and shadows.
Kind of creepy, but still fun to have after all these years.
I. Love. These. Boots.
You can sort of see me, right?
Elmo on the floor.
The clouds were incredible looking.
The view on the way back down. That tiny speck along the path is my son way up ahead of us.
The sky was wonderful today – perfect for shadows.
I have no words. Sigh.
The view down the race track before the big event.
You have no idea how happy it made me yesterday to finally find her!
My daughter seem to be dominating this blog… (photo taken with ipad mini)
So strange to be using my headlights at 5:20 p.m.
I can’t believe how much rain we’ve had this summer.
Some see yarn, I see endless possibility and hours of entertainment.
I love finding cute handmade things on Etsy.
All prepped and ready for her sleepytime medicine.
Don’t they look appetizing?
I’m a sucker for big bold graphics.
Yes, our Christmas decorations are still up.
The cars behind me probably wouldn’t be happy to know my extremely slow speed was because I was taking this photo. Next time I’ll keep both hands on the wheel.
There was also a box of chocolates that came with the flowers. Yum.
The woman in white.
You can kind of see the leg of one of the two people who came tonight.
They both had a great time and did a great job remembering to say “Thank you!”
Reading Spongebob to Spongebob.
I think he may need a belt.
I find this both wonderful and extremely distracting when driving into Philly.
I see this truck all over town and it always makes me smile.

Totally captivated by the toy display.
Saturday morning art.
I love how they all appear to be looking at me.
I love how you can see my kids and me reflection.
The foot on a $32,000 statue of Ganesh in ABC Carpet and Home. For good luck, people offer him money, stuffing it or balancing it anywhere they can.
My bedside table and view out the window.
Do you say “s’more ingredients?” or “s’mores ingredients?” I’ve always wondered if the singular of s’mores is s’more.
99% of these were mine when I was little.
Chilling in the living room before bedtime.
He read the entire book in one night… while at a cub scout event.
All it needs is some eyes.
The view down the center of one of the racks of baby girl clothes.
I still haven’t put away the silverware we used at Thanksgiving and Christmas.
Cool? Or creepy?
Driving over the Chesapeake and Delaware Canal bridge on my way to a meeting in Dover.
I really love this composition.
With windows like this it’s no wonder our energy bills are so high.
Why is it the grass seems to grow faster than I have the energy to mow it?
Chubby little toes.
The same building rendered two different ways.
Simple and bold.
I love this.
Is that a camera in the square next to the words “Free Air”? Why would they need a camera on the air pump?
I love how neat and organized and at the same time a bit haphazard and disorganized these bundles are.
This almost looks like an amphitheater with rows of seats.
I am completely fascinated by these crazy goat climbing structures at the petting zoo.
I wish I could sit in a box and watch movies.
Captured in mid-air.
I made her stand there while I took photo after photo trying to get the dandelion in focus. This was the only one that worked.
We went out and bought my daughter some snow boots since all she had were these rain boots. She didn’t seem to mind, though.
I had never heard of this guy until today… apparently he’s THE BIG THING right now.
I love the color of the steel against the blue sky.
Labyrinth in an abandoned reservoir.
This is only about 1/5 of the entire wall – all covered in hand prints.

I love these little squishy legs!
I love woolly bears!
This makes me smile.
As you can see, my mom loves frosting.

My daughter called this her “nest”
I love the smiles.
The best part about this store is getting to and from the rooftop parking.
Taking a running leap.
Suddenly I have a craving for Doritos…
He’s probably thinking, “I wish she would get that camera out of my face.”
This building is as great on the inside as it is on the outside.

What a wonderful view.
My son always chooses the mystery flavor so I grabbed one for him today.
The water fountain in the school where my son has his cub scout meetings (the same elementary school I attended for four years)
A sign of a good year to come is when everyone has new shoes to wear.
This was a lucky shot since the heart shape disappeared moments later.

Trying on her big brother’s boots.
Holding her new Duplo Cinderella.
I love that the plates, cups, utensils, teapot and cooking pot were all mine when I was little.
I wish I could have seen the full color version!
Getting ready to leave after a nice diner meal.
I used http://www.gasbuddy.com
to find out if any local gas stations were selling their mid-grade octane for $3.65. Luckily one was so I made a lunchtime trip in order to get this photo.
Sometimes I bring yarn to work just so I can squeeze it all day.
Another truck photo…
1977 VW Rabbit Brochure – US Market – Front and Back Covers
I love the juxtaposition of natural and man made elements.
My office is in a converted chapel that was originally built in 1887 and isn’t very well insulated. Incredible Heat Machine to the rescue.
Sleeping next to the dinosaurs.
I’ve been in bed so much this weekend my back hurts from lying down so much.
Almost nobody on the road.
I love having a little girl.
We finally got some snow last night. Not much, but enough to require scraping the windshield and blasting the defrost to help it melt faster.
You can see my husband in the reflection dutifully bagging and paying while I stalk my kids for photo opportunities.
Two little deers. (or is the plural of deer just “deer?”)

I’m not sure if this is a really great idea, or a really crazy idea.
Notice how everyone has a piece of cake…
I love the simplicity of this machine – and the giant buttons.
Circles inside of circles
Those crazy Unitarians (actually, this is where my husband and I got married – almost 13 years ago!)
This game has taken over my life for the past week and I finally finished level 5 during lunch today. While I’m happy to be finished building Rome, I’m not happy about the “Continue” button at the bottom. I want my life back.
I love the old 1970s fonts
There is something so comforting about sitting in a pile of leaves.
I’m so glad we have sidewalks where we live.

Thank goodness for free e-filing.
He is obsessed with Minecraft.
I love seeing my son having fun and interacting with his friends at Cub Scouts.
Looking up from under the playground walkway.
I’m not sure I would call them “gourmet” but they are pretty darn delicious.
Pushing her car down the sidewalk.
What is the stuff in the center of these? Frosting?
Concave reflection in the rear view mirror of a old school bus.
It’s nice to see this played with again.

I absolutely love the views down these orchard rows.
Unfortunately my son had already returned his shoes when I took this photo so his are missing from the group.
