My Everyday Life: Week 50

Here’s what this past week looked like:

Connecticut has been on my mind. It doesn’t make sense. How could it?

Somehow life goes on. Life MUST go on. Life DOES go on. My thoughts & prayers go out to the families who are suffering the tremendous pain of loss.

Shadows.

Sunny morning with an oat scone. I love the way my mug reflected the light.

Sun on this building. I found this magic while sitting at a stop light.

An hour to myself.

On the way to the post office, I found leaf fossils.

Making a letter for Santa after dinner.

This is that letter.

Pinot checking out a deer.

When the heater is on, magical things happen to these mirrors. My mother-in-law sent us the most amazing mirror decorations for our windows. I am in LOVE with them.

An Arnold Palmer at my old hangout.

Simpsons clouds in Sausalito.

Impromptu lunch date with Casey.

Uni has grown on me. For reals.

Neon skies.

Nothing better than a nice holiday card stack to be mailed.

The reflections of our outside Christmas lights make it feel like we have 10 extra rows of lights.

DIY demo in our family room.

A pocket picture that I really like.

Finding blue sky on the ground.

Deep in thought.

Purple Tom’s.

First painted room in our house. HOORAY for contrast!

    Love the picture of Pinot! I had a cat growing up that chased a bear off our property, it was terrifying and hilarious at once!

    Love those mirror garlands. Hope you keep the up year round in some little pocket of your house.

    Nothing beats the feeling of popping that stack of cards in the post – knowing you’ll put a smile on someones face when they open the mailbox!

    I love your brain, Tracy. I love that your eyes are always open to seeing beautiful things in odd places. I’m inspired by your ability to find light, and shapes, and colors – and your ability to be so receptive of their impression on us. You have this depth to you that I’m discovering through your photographs … and I love it! You’re a thinker and a feeler and I just love your soul! Keep on with those snapshots – and pretty please keep sharing them with us!

    There’s not a person in this country who doesn’t have Connecticut on their mind – now is the time to reflect and count our blessings for what we do have and what we haven’t lost.

    On a brighter note, I’m swooning over those mirror decorations, I’ll pay you to ask your mom-in-law where she found em! So, so pretty. I would never stop staring at my windows.

    I love leaf fossils and impromptu lunch dates :) Beautiful week

  • December 17, 2012

    I took a totally similar picture of leaf fossils (awesome name for them btw) a week ago: http://instagram.com/p/S_Ze2KJJwC/

    The photo of the sidewalk with a puddle reflecting the blue sky is UNREAL.
