It's that time of the month again...I mean 12 of 12- what were YOU thinking? This month was a little different for me because I actually appear in a couple of my pictures. That's a switch!
9:12 am: I actually had two pictures taken at this time, and I had a hard time choosing between them. I ended up with this one because I took it to document the fact that I was wearing my favorite necklace. What I also got, however, was a great picture of cleavage! Win-win :)
10:36 am: Mid-morning snack. I like the modern conversation hearts because they are trying to be hip and keep up with the times. The flip side of that, however, is that you get pithy hearts that say "Email me." And I don't really think that "Guess what?" and "No way" are really heart-felt sentiments.
10:16 am: Sabrina and I had to travel to Lakeshore Park to meet with the folks of Knox Youth Sports. As always, we traveled in style in the customized Prius hybrid!
12:12 pm: I have some wacky co-workers, no doubt. When I told them about the project, they were determined to make sure that I had an interesting set of pictures. While I understand that the point is to document you day and not create a day to photograph, I can honestly say that these shenanigans are not really out of the ordinary! My favorite part of this picture is that the stick by KD's hand wasn't staged. It was a happy accident. It makes it look like she had a spell that back-fired!
12:14 pm: Come on, with willing participants like this, how could I NOT put them in my 12 of 12?
12:48 pm: Emily and I went for a walk on the trails, looking and listening for birds. She's only about 5 feet tall, so I got on the ground to take this picture and make her look really tall (and really high up in the tree). Did it work?
4:59 pm: The drive home. I have to head due west, so I end up staring directly into the sun almost the entire trip. Luckily, there isn't much traffic in Knoxville.
5:11 pm: The suet thief. This little guy has managed to shimmy up the pole to steal all the suet that was supposed to be for woodpeckers and blue jays. Hmph!
5:23 pm: The evidence. I had read Chad's blog earlier in the day in which he states that he hasn't seen the magazine, featuring a blog that ripped off his idea. I thought it only appropriate to photograph the evidence for incorporation into my photos for the REAL 12 of 12. In the Feb 2009 issue of Creating Keepsakes, there is a layout that features a scrapper that participates in a challenge blog called 12 of 12. I assumed it was Chad's blog until I saw that the address was NOT. The worst part is that the blog author didn't even ask Chad's permission, and it is honestly his idea. Geesh!
6:22 pm: Wayne is cooking dinner- Yay! Pasta makes me happy :)
9:16 pm: Tiny didn't make it through the entire episode of the office. Even though it was funny, he wasn't willing to forego his cat nap.
10:46: Bed time.
