Ok so my boyfriend invited me to this group. I don't take pictures every day usually, but I'm going to try since I like taking them.


Let's see if I can rise to the challenge and post 1 photo a day ;D

Finally broke down and stole Sam's quick links code... LOL!!

Thank you :) That was what I was trying to do!

Yes I truly hope I can "channel" some of grandpa to Tristan

: ) Thank you all. It was an emotional day and all your replies warmed my heart.

I have to pick up a few boxes which are at my Mom's attick in a few weeks. We don't have a hallway and we have a tiny house. Storage room is used up by hubby's tools.
I need to find a house for us to buy this year. Urgently. We have one whole room rented at our landlord's house as well with boxes full of books, kitchen items, etc.
Horror ;)

I love that shot.
Reminds me so much of our situation, hehe :)
I need to do some shots of our house. Nobody believes it :)
(This is it during winter last year. Just check the size of the car compared to the house ;)

I'm actually both. A big clutter collector and on the other hand a big white space lover.
Have I mentioned lately, that I'm weird?
;)

Take care and I hope, you'll find a solution soon :)!

Great shot! I understand you cause I keep everything, my brothers and sisters gave me loads of stuff to hang on too while they were moving and now my house looks like a ... I don't know what.

I see this door out my living room window. I don't know what charms me about it, but I enjoy this view a lot and find it calming. Maybe it's the light that's always on and seems so welcoming.

Sleep now *yawn* - The other contender of the day.
Loca.... 11 years ago
It charms me too, very nice shot.
Hope you'll have a nice day.

For me it has to be the branches, can't keep my eyes off of them.

Maybe the tree and the warm lights.

I've been perusing your photos and comments, but have not commented myself, not wanting to clutter up your place with a "hi, I was here" comment. Until now.

Hi. I was here.

Oh, by the way I feel overwhelmed by clutter too. And I like the swans best.

I like the soft light through all those branches!

Okay, I lied. I like the photos of you the best. The one with the sign is hilarious, and the one at the beginning is elegant, and simple, and I guess, evocative (great hair!). And the one through the tube--that's pretty cool. And the kids. That's all for now. Don't want to clutter the place up with my comments.
Heidulius 11 years ago
Your'e welcome to clutter up my space anytime, Buns ;) And thank you, I'm blushing...

That's what I really want to do. Through the years I've done just that regularly. It feels so refreshing and cathartic in a way to get rid of all the stuff. To just let go of it. Maybe cleaning house and letting go of useless stuff helps me do the same thing inside of myself.

Thanks for visiting my diary everyone - I really appreciate it and it means a lot to me to read your comments. I try to visit as many of you as I can regularly, even if sometimes I don't leave a comment, and I love getting a glimpse into all of your lives.

This group rocks!

Dinner and me

Dinner!

Veggies roasting in the oven.
I'm so much better at cooking vegetarian stuff than "normal" food. I was a vegetarian for 5 years and for those years I loved cooking. I don't seem to have the same enthusiasm for "normal family meals". I think it's because I love veggies - I think they're colorful and cute and full of yummie stuff that's good for you. So making something of the vegetables themselves suits me better than treating them as side dishes. So since Sam's had enough of processed foods, fast food et.c. I've had a chance to show off my veggie talents. I haven't wanted to force my veggie-love on him since he's been the very typical man about his food. And now he's so surprised of how much better my food tastes....I even got him eating lentils. Men, right?? :D OMG I missed my veggies!!! I've been making indian-style bengali dahl, curried potatoes (making the curry myself), wholewheat pasta with roasted veggies and tomato/basil sauce. Planning on making some patties and chickpea salad this weekend.

Hope I've found my lost love for cooking again. It used to be my favorite hobby a few years ago - I even learned to make my own tofu - but I lost interest after I started eating meat again. Weird.

Anyways. Things are going good - good things happening at work and I'm preparing to take the clutter in our home by storm. Or maybe just one room at a time... But if I don't I will go crazy :D

Big hugs and good wishes to you all!

That was a cheerful and inspiring to be happy about what I-have-here-and-now post! I always thought that people who can cook well are great and somehow special. My boyfriend cooks well! Lucky me:) I can't do much myself. It just doesnt come out tasty!

Sam? Iceland? Fast food? Bing! Ah! I get it. Sam is your S/O! You're a lucky woman!

*okay, that's enough for now. I make a practice of never writing more than three question marks or four exclamation points in one paragraph! Know what I mean?
Loca.... 11 years ago
Your picture is so good. The reflections came out so nicely.
Sam is growing now, my mother says that when we grow we start to enjoy good food, less meat and more vegetables.
I can't make tofu, always buy it, don't even know how it's made.

Hehe, can you cook for me from next week on?
I don't know, if I want to cook for myself only :S
Sweet shot - I love the lighting!
And good luck with the clutter ;)!

This is a really nice photograph...and a great little story. I love cooking but sometimes I get lazy. But, I really believe you are what you eat and I know I feel so good when I eat good. I am convinced that I have such a healthy baby because I ate so well during my pregnancy, the best in my life!

Glad things are well chez toi...good luck tackling the clutter. I hate clutter too but it is all so overwhelming!

this is such a warm, toasty pic. the reflection is a curious one. at first i wasn't sure if it was a refelction or that you were somehow on the other side of it -- which doesn't make any sense but that's the way the eye can trick you.

My feet need some love...

Feet

Took some photos of my feet who have served me well for the last 30 years. They are in dire need of some love these days - need to give them a nice soak. The damn cold reeks havoc on my skin :(((( I had to abuse the picasa soft focus to hide the fact that I haven't shaved my legs in a while...and even that wasn't enough LOL! I think it's a genetic thing since my ancestresses have lived in the cold climate of Iceland and the Faroe Islands for at least a thousand years. Maybe at some point it was a survival thing to have hairy legs...

Cheers!

Bathroom self portrait

Girls room photo 2

Restaurant bathroom. Full make-up and 3 drinks :D I went for pink lipstick instead of red so I wouldn't look like a vampyre in that black dress, but still a bit vampy. But that's just me - I had the nickname Morticia in college LOL! Dress me up in pink bows and frills and I still have the eyebrows and the cheekbones. I'm lovely in pink though... I have a vanity vibe going today - getting dressed up and taking self-protraits does that to me :D

Aih feel pretty, oh so pretty and witty and gaaaaayyyyyy....!!!

Toodles!!

Beautiful! I love your "had a few drinks" expression...

(I love the feet shot too. I haven't shaved in a long time as well but unlike you I must descend from some rare hairless species because I simply do not have a lot of hair on my body...trust me, I know I am lucky...)

I have been busy and not able to check the diaries much but I wanted to come by and say "hi"....
