Photos on a gloomy day

It’s a dark, windy, gloomy day outside – the perfect sort of day to sleep in, watch a movie, and do laundry.  And, hey!  Would ya look at that!  It’s exactly what I’m doing today.  (Yeah, sort of accidentally slept through church . . . .)

While I’m waiting for the next load to get out of the dryer, I thought I’d share a few photos with you.  The light is terrible today and both of the batteries for my camera appear to be nearly out of juice – so much so that they can’t power up the flash.  So they’re not the greatest quality of photographs, but I’m having fun.  And on a dark, windy, gloomy day, that’s the sort of thing I work toward.

Anyway!  We went to Savannah Mall yesterday because we refuse to find another hair dresser.  So instead of finding one closer to home, we travel the hour or so every few months to go to the lady we love, get gyros for dinner, poke around the mall a little bit, and then head home.  We picked up Justin’s sister, Jessi, and her roommate on our way past their dorm so they could hit the mall, too.  We got haircuts, picked up a few things in Target, got gyros and ice cream, and on our way out, I stopped into a cute little shop and picked up two short sticks of bamboo.

I have wanted something green and alive on my desk at work for a while.  I work in a sterile-looking building with no windows and it smells of chemicals and it’s just really a cold place to be sometimes.  I got a bag of shells to put into the vase to help stabilize them, but the vase was one I had at home in a cupboard holding a funky-looking champagne cork.

I am so excited to take this into the office with me tomorrow.  It’s going to make my cubical a much more welcoming place, I think.

It’s sort of the same way that this board makes my home office a wonderful place.

Working clockwise, we’ve got an invitation to my niece’s first birthday party, a birth announcement for my friend’s baby above a pictures of my brother’s children, a picture of my youngest nephew, flowers from my wedding bouquet, a picture of my brother’s family, a picture of my sister’s family, my parent’s wedding photo, and a photo collage on the back of a letter from a friend.

I love this board.

And, one last photo that I took while playing around taking pictures of the bamboo:

  1. Hi there! I got a google alert with my name on it and it included toe socks so I hopped on to check it out! Turns out you bought toe socks for another blogger and it linked to your site. I too, am a Kylene obsessed with toe-socks. Small world. :))
