NaNoPoblano 2017 – Day 23 (November 23)

Go NaNoPoblano (National Blog Posting Month) (https://anitashree.com/2017/10/12/its-approaching-that-time-again !

And here we are again, Kitten Thursday at last!  And I have to say, it’s not Thanksgiving here – its Fake Thanksgiving today 🙂 – but I am thankful for a good day at the office today (expectations were low, but they were highly exceeded).  And tomorrow?  Well, it’s Friday, so boo-yah!

And now, without further ado, Kitten Thursday!

NaNoPoblano 2017 – Day 22 (November 22)

Go NaNoPoblano (National Blog Posting Month) (https://anitashree.com/2017/10/12/its-approaching-that-time-again !

Well, another day, another NaNoPoblano post.  I don’t have anything particularly exciting to say to you all today.  It was a work at home day, and I got a lot done, and then I went for a run with friend Darnell (really hit the spot), and tonight it’s off to see friend Judy’s fourth episode on The Great Canadian Baking Show.

But, before you think I am posting a diary entry, the CY365 theme today is “On the Table”, so I thought you might like to see what is on our living room table right now.

Actually, I’m not really sure why you’d want to see all the stuff I have piled up here right now.  Just representations of my chaotic life (or, really, the laziness around putting things away).  But I thought you might like to see Jasper in the background.

Don’t forget, tomorrow will be Kitten Thursday!

Today’s CY365 theme is Auburn, and what better Auburn could there be than a kitty in front of the fire.  And after today’s work day, I need kitties and fire!  Not that it was all bad – there were some good things that happened at work today, but man…some things just don’t ever change.  Good thing I’m doing my best not to care about it any more.

So, without further ado, the therapy of kitten and fire.

Today’s 365 theme was/is Thankful For Who I Am | Self Portrait | Appreciate Yourself | You Are Unique.  Note how they give you several ways to interpret the theme?  Of course, while many people have been posting selfies, I don’t do selfies…well, not many, and usually only when I re-do my hair (speaking of which, I need to remember to make an appointment soon!).

Anyway, here is my interpretation for today’s theme.  Here I am, appreciating myself.

Went to the opera with Mom today.  I thought it was pretty amazing.  Hard to talk about though – very emotional and there were many tears.  If you ever get a chance to see it, make the time!

Where did the day go?  Caturday is almost over…

NaNoPoblano 2017 – Day 17 (November 17)

Go NaNoPoblano (National Blog Posting Month) (https://anitashree.com/2017/10/12/its-approaching-that-time-again !

So, every month in my CY365 challenge, there is a theme for one of the days called “Where I Stand”.  The November day was today, so I thought hey, why don’t I share with you a year’s worth of Where I Stand?  So, here we go!

In January, our furnace motor died.  Kevin was, of course, out of town, and it was the COLDEST week we had all winter.  So, here I am standing in front of a dead furnace…

In February we converted 3 of our fireplaces (yes, we are fireplace pigs) to gas.  Of course it was AFTER the furnace died (and was fixed), but we are ready this year!!  Not that I want the furnace to die again…let me take that back…

In March plants are starting to go crazy.  Of course, we have plants and flowers all year round, but March things really start to change.

April?  Well, sometimes I can’t remember if I stayed on topic or not…must have strayed, because I can’t find a picture from April for Where I Stand.

In May, I guess I thought you should see me standing next to our car.

In June I decided to stand in front of Jasper.  I don’t think he was very amused.

July – I believe I was on holidays and enjoying the fact that it was finally warm enough so that I could avoid socks.

August – back to slippers, and reading a book on the old iPad.  Might have been holidays again…

September – here I was on a run with Darnell, checking out a giant caterpillar.  We did NOT step on it!

October blooms in the garden, and apparently it was finally jeans weather again.

Today.  I saw this weird looking manhole cover like thing, and thought hey – I could stand here for my picture today!  So I did.

So now, there is only one month left for this year’s Where I Stand.  Where would you like it to be?  Don’t be smart-asses…

NaNoPoblano 2017 – Day 16 (November 16): Kitten Thursday!

Go NaNoPoblano (National Blog Posting Month) (https://anitashree.com/2017/10/12/its-approaching-that-time-again/ !

You know, I was going to link my Kitten Thursday post to the Daily Post the way I usually do, but I thought, hey?!?  Why don’t I share Kitten Thursday with NaNoPoblano?

So, without further ado:  Kitten Thursday for you!!

NaNoPoblano 2017 – Day 15 (November 15)

Traditionally speaking (as the theme of today’s 365 is Tradition…), it’s time to start listening to Christmas music.  Well, it was time awhile ago, but don’t tell Kevin.

So, here I am working on my coursework, in front of the first with kitties, listening to my favourite Christmas playlist on our apple TV.

So, it’s iPhone photo day again.  And another 365 challenge theme for your viewing pleasure. Today’s theme:  Find a Heart.

So, metaphorically, I found lots of heart today – work was actually a pleasant place to be (and I even looked forward to going today!)  But it’s hard to take pictures of a metaphor, and literal hearts are hard to find in our house.  I’m not a “heart” person.  So, in order to FIND a heart, I had to MAKE a heart. And what better thing to make a heart out of than red wine!  I can’t think of a better thing.

So, here are two versions of basically the same shot showing my heart:

Elliot was hanging out wanting scratches, so I tried to add him to the picture, but of course he was uncooperative.  Getting the wine, the heart, and Elliot (actually LOOKING at me) in one shot was a challenge, as you can see.

And thus ends my challenge for today!
