2010/365 Days

Day 355 – Chop, Chop!

December 21st, 2010|Photo a Day - 2010|

355/365 (December 21, 2010) - It's embarrassing when you can't even decipher your own signature. A nice man made this for me years ago...but I can't remember which way is up, and don't even know for sure if it actually has any realistic translation of my name. If anyone out [...]

Day 354 – Life’s Like That

December 20th, 2010|Photo a Day - 2010|

354/365 (December 20, 2010) - Spent all day marking exams and assignments. Then got a phone call that completely depressed me. So, this photo seemed appropriate. Life's a crapshoot and the dice don't always fall your way. Seems a little too frequent these past few years though. I've come to [...]

Day 353 – It Finally Feels Like Christmas!

December 19th, 2010|Photo a Day - 2010|

353/365 (December 19, 2010) - The only downside is that we had to go up the mountain to find it. I really do love winter, real winter, the white kind. Particularly on days like today. Clear, sunny, blue sky, and all that sunshine reflecting of the bright white snow. Sadly, [...]

Day 351 – Remember When?

December 17th, 2010|Photo a Day - 2010|

351/365 (December 17, 2010) - Remember when typing someone a letter took a bit more effort? It meant making sure the ribbon was inked and ready? When a mistake wasn't easily remedied? You had to stuff that little piece of white, coated paper in between the ribbon and your paper [...]

Day 350 – Pennies “in” Heaven?

December 16th, 2010|Photo a Day - 2010|

350/365 (December 16, 2010) - The poor little penny. It gets no respect. It fills your pockets and generates weight without value. It's presence means that when you don't have one, you end up with four that you don't know what to do with. Then they get thrown in a [...]

Day 349 – One of ‘Those’ Days?

December 15th, 2010|Photo a Day - 2010|

349/365 (December 15, 2010) - In another life I used to work in an upscale pet/aquarium hobby store. Aside from being in charge of the fish in the shop, my next favourite thing was doing window displays with a co-worker. Friday nights were usually quiet, so we'd regularly tear the [...]

Day 348 – Angels in the Tree

December 14th, 2010|Photo a Day - 2010|

348/365 (December 14, 2010) - At least the living room looks like Christmas, because there isn't anything remotely festive about the weather outside. My stupidly expensive waterproof riding boots blew a zipper after only a few weeks, then were repaired, and now the repair has failed. I took the opportunity [...]

Day 347 – Molasses Sugar Cookies

December 13th, 2010|Photo a Day - 2010|

347/365 (December 13, 2010) - I'm not really big on traditions, but for me it just is not Christmas without molasses sugar cookies. I got the recipe off my mother when I left home and have never changed the way I make them. The only problem (depends on your perspective [...]

Day 346 – A Christmas Carol

December 12th, 2010|Photo a Day - 2010|

346/365 (December 12, 2010) - Today we put up a Christmas tree.....and decorated the cats. The first decoration on the tree was the parrot, he gets a little freaked out when things change, and a ceiling height Douglas fir in the living room combined with two wigged out cats resulted [...]
