365


I decided to take part in the 365 days project I'm sure you've heard of since it's all over flicker and blog land. I read about it on Anabela's blog. I will post my pictures on my flickr stream and maybe here once in awhile.
We are going to try to include a self-portrait once a week or so. I don't feel like I'm particularly photogenic so I'm hoping the experience will help me overcome my feelings about this. I think it's got a lot to do with attitude as with most things. Oh yah, and that little thing called self-acceptance.
The above pictures are my living room in black+white. Plus note my new slippers. I am loving them. Our furnace is not working properly and has been being fickle for the last 2 winters. We have to purge it and force the water through the system about once a month. We do have a woodstove but my bedroom is at the oppposite side of the house (and it's a big house with 13 rooms) so we don't get any of that heat at night. The furnace is doing this thing where it loses all pressure (I know this is total snoozedom but stay with me) and the hot water doesn't get to circulating in the far reaches of the upstairs. So this is what I wear to bed: t-shirt, long-sleeve, sweater, tights and sweatpants and knee socks with my slippers on...in bed...
Was that a totally exciting story?? Have you struck me from your favorites list now??
Well, tattoo pictures to come later. Plus an exclusive interview with Lady Gaga.*
*One of those things is not true.

you're on my list of favorites now!

can't wait to see more of your 365. i think your living room looks scrumptious in black & white. gives me a better feel for each individual piece since i'm not distracted by how everything just flows together so nicely...

Fun. My house is freezing too. I sleep with two down blankets and pray every morning my pipes haven't frozen.

Hey - I have those slippers! I am wearing them right now actually. How's that for twinsies ;) I am out of the loop...haven't heard of the 365 thing but think it sounds pretty cool. I hope your heating problems resolve soon. We didn't have heat in our upstairs for years, until our son was born and we figured he probaly needed it. Your sleep outfit sounds very familiar.

I'm excited that so many of us are doing this! Now I need to seek you out on Flickr so I can follow yours. I'm scared of the one portrait a week, but I think its a really good idea to get us all over ourselves a wee bit. Love it. Looking forward to Lady GaGa.
