More is…. well it’s just more

Standard

The other day I was looking for an old document I had written so I pulled out my external hard drive and ended up getting lost in almost a decades worth of photos. I have literally THOUSANDS of pictures which is fantastic. I really love taking pictures and I pretty much take every opportunity I can but the real reason I have SO many is because I am totally a hoarder digitally speaking. I don’t delete ANYTHING.  Which would be fine if every picture I took was a one a kind masterpiece but the truth is where I am shooting something I like it take dozens of pictures until I get THE ONE. I don’t need 23 pictures of a piece of toast! So starting today I am going to get off my lazy digital butt and start to clear out all the detritus. In the mean time I give you….

MORE!

Jan.26 – Treasure

Standard

I am pretty good at getting unwanted or unneeded junk out of my house. I am sentimental for sure but I am also pretty practical. But there is one area on my life where I a total hoarder… my photographs.  I have hundreds of gigs of pictures going back over decades. Some of them are total rubbish or just too numerous. Seriously why do I need 42 pictures of a Coke bottle? But I love to go through and look at these old pictures and find some treasures that I sometimes missed a weird shot or neat angle. Today I was looking for  a picture from a special occasion and when I was flipping through I found some shots I just really liked and I don’t think I have shared before. So I am going to share them with you now. YAY!

January 19th – Baked Goods

Standard

I am back on split shifts for the next few weeks. I know a lot of people wouldn’t like the splits but I personally love them, specifically in the winter. I find that having those day light hours really improves my mental health and then in turn my productivity. When I am getting things done I feel good! It is a cycle of goodness.

The last few days I have been very productive but today slightly less so. I spent much of my 4 hours off hanging out with my husband. It wasn’t anything fancy, lunch and grocery shopping, but I love any extra time I get to spend with my fella.  Once groceries were put away I made myself some muffins for breakfast this week and I am pleased to say they turned out so well.   This evening I made lunch & dinner for tomorrow and spent soem quality cuddle time with my hounds while Gil made dinner for tonight. Yeah he’s smart and sexy AND a good cook. How could I ask for more?

Tomorrow I take on Mount Washmore!

Live From Toronto – 25 Things Fat People Shouldn’t Do!

Standard

Good morning boys and girls! Welcome to my blog from beautiful and VERY VERY COLD Toronto Ontario. If you are reading for the first time and the subject of this post alarms you, or if you just need a reminder here is a quick synopsis from my favorite blogger Jess – The Militant Baker!

“25 Things Fat People Shouldn’t Do is an unabashed middle finger to the preposterous idea that any human who weighs more than the status quo does not deserve to live a full and well rounded (ahem) life. The list of 25 is composed word for word from direct lists of sheer assholery found on the internet. These range from the absurd to the profoundly shameful, and I will be disproving this offensive notion with style. Feel free to join in on the fun, and if you do, link at the bottom so I can share. May the Chub Club live long and prosper!”

The List 

  1. Do a cannonball
  2. Swing at the park
  3. Wear a bikini
  4. Drive
  5. Wear animal print
  6. Eat in public
  7. Wear shirts with glitter
  8. Ride a scooter
  9. Make art of themselves
  10. Shimmy
  11. Jump in an elevator
  12. Be straight
  13. Wear an ironic t-shirt
  14. Go to the movies
  15. Walk through a doorway
  16. Roll down a hill
  17. Run
  18. Go to bars
  19. fly in an airplane
  20. Sit on anything plastic
  21. Dance
  22. Wear a mumu
  23. Sit at a booth
  24. Ride a bike
  25. Live.

Well, I didn’t get to Toronto by horse and buggy, much fun as that would have been, and Aimee veto’d driving so we arrived on Thursday afternoon via AIR PLANE.  I can only hypothesize that the original creators of the list were worried that my extra 50 pounds would bring a plane crashing down from the sky.  Or that in having to share the recycled air with a fatty might make them fat too (it’s contagious isn’t it?!)  OR in those great big, giant, comfy airplane seats my fat elbow might touch theirs.  Truth be told I have had my share of issues flying but usually it has nothing to do with the above reasons although I do worry about the seat belt after Kevin Smith’s “Too Fat To Fly” incident. But once I am safely seated I have never once worried that my fat ass will be the cause of my firey demise (in my head it is usually mechanical failure) nor have I ever had anyone complain about me or voice any concern about having me on the plane (unless they don’t like my crying and Hail Mary’s, I am sure some people don’t like that!)

When I did my last post back in January my friend Mark D. really jumped on # 7.  the glitter shirt. It became our funny in joke and then he started me sending me links to tutorials for making my own glitter shirt… so this weekend that is just what I did!!

There! I even worse it into the office today so Mark could see it.  I am pleased with my first effort of t-shirt painting and I think there may be more of this in my future, yay crafty Meg!  Special thanks to my husband and his help with the stencil cutting, he has the hands of surgeon, he keeps them in his craft room. 😉

So what will I strike off my list next?? I have some thoughts, how about you?

Day 41 – When the things you love come together!

I love taking pictures and I REALLY love spending time with my husband so I was really excited tonight when both of these things came together. Gil doesn’t love having his picture taken but he wanted to take some pictures of his new skulls (which you can purchase here) and because I helped him I got to take pictures of HIM! Win win!
