Oh yeah, I was writing a post every day to coincide with Fat Mum Slim's Photo-a-Day Challenge. I posted every day from January 31 through March 9. Then I decided to take the weekend off. And it turned into a looooooong 5 day weekend!
Whaddya say we catch up?
March 10: Loud
This is my cat, Sophie. Her "IwantacattreatandIwantitNOW" cry is very loud. And irritating. But she's so cute, right?
March 11: Someone You Talked to Today
Every morning, weekday or weekend, rain or shine, my husband, Jon, and I have our coffee time. We kick back with a cuppa Joe and spend the time chatting (reminiscent of our college days spent chilling and talking for hours over coffee at Village Inn). It's a daily ritual that I cherish and it's a wonderful way to start each day.
March 12: Fork
fork noun \ 'fòrk\ : an implement with two or more prongs
used especially for taking up (as in eating), pitching, or digging
March 13: A Sign
There is still one week until the official start of spring, but I'm tellin' ya, it sure seems like it's here already. We're having beautiful, unseasonably warm weather (high today: 68°!) and with the time change this past weekend and the daylight lasting longer, it feels official.
March 14: Clouds
One thing I love about this daily photo challenge is that it helps me take at least one moment each day to stop, to take a breather, to be in the present moment, and to notice the things around me. You know, like the phrase "stop and smell the roses". Yesterday's prompt, clouds, is the perfect example of this. Obviously I see clouds in the sky on a cloudy day, but yesterday I was actually looking at the clouds and seeing them and admiring their beauty and majesty.
And that brings us to today. Is it really March 15 already?!?
March 15: Car
Behold the 2012 Maserati Quattroporte. It is $130,000 of pure luxury and beauty. Jon had the opportunity to test drive one and he brought it home for me to see. I'll never forget the purr of the engine as it pulled into the driveway, beckoning me to come outside, to softly touch its smooth, sleek body, to sit in its supple, leather seat. I had no idea that a car could sound so pretty. Or feel so heavenly.......
What?!? Oh. Wait. The prompt didn't say "dream car", did it? Okaaaaay. Here's my real photo for "car":
March 15: Car (Take Two)
I do love my Honda Odyssey. It's a perfectly practical vehicle for our family right now. I know that there's a certain stereotype about minivan drivers, but that doesn't bother me in the least. This widely-held belief is that minivan drivers have the "distinctive reputation for being mothers, most likely of multiple children...(with) an unruly teen in the front seat playing with the stereo dial. Toys and fast food wrappings litter the floorboards of the car." Yep, that sounds like me. Can't argue with the truth, can we?
But someday, when I am willing and able to be impractical about my car, you will find me behind the wheel of a Maserati.
Until then, thanks for stopping by, and have a fantastic day!
