A squirrel’s interpretation of Monday. And I am totally feeling it.
Category: crack me up
“Lunch atop a Skyscraper” – Halloween edition. This house in our neighborhood nails Halloween every year. Last year their skeletons reenacted a scene from Field of Dreams. They’ve also done Game of Thrones, our founding fathers/Betsy Ross and a circus. And those are just the ones I can remember. I cannot believe the attention to…
Is it just me or does this fence look like he’s up to something? On an unrelated note… so the surprise continues. Check out how our friend is doing. Day seventeen.
“Every day is a new opportunity to begin again. Every day is your birthday.” – The Book of Joy, Lasting Happiness in a Changing World Just a funny photo and a quote from a book I’m currently reading. They seemed to go together. I spotted this party aftermath in the middle of a parking lot…
I was going through my photos from yesterday to clean up my phone when I got to this one. I hadn’t paid much attention to it before because my focus was on all the dogs. But then I honed in on the gentleman seated to the left. This is now my new favorite photo from…
Winter, can we not do this?
“These six days between Christmas and New Year’s is the only time of year you should strive to do absolutely nothing. Make zero progress. Take all the time off. Go on vacation from your vacation. Be the least impressive version of yourself. Transform into a couch.” – Eugene Lee Yang I’m actually working this week…
There’s always a reason to smile… …and sometimes it smiles back. (My raisin toast from yesterday morning was very chipper.)
“Experience every emotion. Each has its own beauty, I promise.” – Varvara, singer If concrete can be so expressive…there’s no limit to what we can do. But seriously, who knew concrete had such a broad range of emotions??
Meet the Neighbors
“Snowflakes are one of nature’s most fragile things, but look at what they can do when they stick together.” – Unknown And look at how creative my neighbors are! Our neighborhood’s snowman/woman game is on point this snowfall. Made this morning’s run one of my favorites of all time. Meet nearsighted, patriotic reindeer snowman. And…
Before and After
“Humor is reason gone mad.” – Groucho Marx I was searching through my photos for something this morning and found this silliness from a few weeks ago. These still make me laugh out loud. Before: My kitchen candle looked like a little old Zen master. After: Then I lit him. Cling tightly to humor wherever…
When you realize tomorrow is Monday.
I’m gonna be honest. Sometimes I wish I could be a fast and serious runner. The early-corral-assignment, knows-all-of-her-PRs-by-heart, badass type of runner. But the longer I do it, the more I realize that it’s just not in the cards for me. I’m slow. Running doesn’t come naturally for me. Plus, the only thing shorter than my stride…
Old St. Joseph Had a Farm
Had to share some of the kid drawings from my church’s school. So. Stinking. Funny. My personal favorite: The Last Supper. GOLD.
Not the Easter Bunny…
Aw, man. If you’ve read this blog for a while, you know that since 2011, I’ve documented at least one photo per year of chocolate Santa casualties in stores at Christmastime. Here’s some news: apparently the Easter bunny isn’t immune to the aggression. Come on, is it really that difficult to figure out it the chocolate…
I Am Lucky
From the imaginations at my church that brought you “I’m Not a Turkey” and “What Happened to My Snowman,” may I present “I Am Lucky.” “I am lucky to have toys so I can play with my brothers and so we won’t get bored. I am lucky to have trees so I can have fresh…
Nemo! I live for photos like this. And this. A leprechaun dinosaur in the neighborhood. Weird people are awesome.
What Happened to My Snowman?
From the students at my church who brought you “I am Not a Turkey” (post here), may I present “What Happened to My Snowman?” “Snowmen shouldn’t go to battle! They would get shot! They would melt! They might get hit by a tank! Finally, they can’t drive tanks! Snowmen shouldn’t go to BATTLE!!!” “Snowmen shouldn’t sit by…
Always Be a Unicorn
“Always be yourself. Unless you can be a unicorn. Then always be a unicorn.” Recently I posted about a photography hike and how embarrassed I was about looking weird to other hikers. I’ve thought a lot about that day, trying to understand what I had been so worried about. I finally realized that what made that incident unusual is…
Tree Skirts and Santa Shirts
When I glanced at our Christmas tree this morning, I noticed that our new tree skirt appeared to be in a ball under the branches. Upon closer inspection, I realized our Violet was that “ball” and our skirt was just fine. It was just hard to tell where the skirt ended and the cat began….
Pugs Pulling a Sleigh (video)
That is all.
I’m Not a Turkey, I am Cracking Up
In light of upcoming holiday dinner preparations, the second grade students at my church’s school are doing their part to help turkeys escape their fate by giving them disguises. This had me laughing out loud in the hallway as I passed through. Oh my gracious, these are priceless. Enjoy a sampling below. “I’m not a…
