Day 121: Writing & Cross Stitch

I compared writing to cross stitch on my writing blog, so I put my pattern picture in front of my computer screen.

Apparently I missed this day.

Here, have pretties.

Day 119: Dead Ducks

More dead ducks accompany the registration for the OYAN Summer Workshop to Kansas.


Day 118: The New Helm's Deep

(April 27th.)

My siblings create a block fortress for Gandalf, Gimli, and Aragorn.

Then they, uh, shoot it with rubber bands...


Day 117: Shakespeare, Presidents, Robin Hood

(April 26th.)

Homeschooling. Great Courses and cross-stitch.


Day 116: The Cross-Stitch Man

(April 25th.)

Look closely...(in reality, that blank spot is the hand of the man on the horse in my pattern).

Day 115: Writing & Narnia

(April 24th.)

Writing notes (for you fans/creepers--beware, though), pencil box, cross stitch pattern, my stupid cat trying to go to Narnia.

Story: there are little crawl spaces all over our upper floor. Once, my cat get inside THIS VERY ONE, and got STUCK. We only heard it meowing OUTSIDE and it took forever to figure out where the heck she was. And yet, she insists on trying to get into these things all the stinkin' time. Including about 5:30 every morning.

Adventure for the timid pampered house cat, I suppose?


Day 114: I'm Crazy, Pt. 3

(April 23rd.)

Small progress. While listening to BBC Radio's Twelfth Night (including David Tennant as Malvolio, which was both funny and disturbing) and Daniel Schwabauer's Runt the Brave.

Day 113: J. R. R. Tolkien

(April 22nd.)

I looked up this quote for my Daddy after the LotR re-watching during our vacation:

"Always after a defeat and a respite, the Shadow takes another shape and grows again."
"I wish it need not have happened in my time," said Frodo.
"So do I," sand Gandalf, "and so do all who live to see such times. But that is not for them to decide. All we have to decide is what to do with the time that is given us."

-The Lord of the Rings, Book 1, Chapter 2, J. R. R. Tolkien 
Afterwords (and much flipping around in Chapter 2 to find the stinkin' thing) I gave the book a photoshoot and longed to just open it and read it through. For the 30th time or whatever.



Day 112: I'm Crazy, Pt. 2

(April 21st.)

Remember this?

Well, now I have a frame, and the aida cloth, and half of the colors of floss I need (though if I'll have to buy multiple bundles of the same floss, I don't know).

So, the craziness has STARTED.




Day 111: Robin Has a Bad Day

(April 20th.)

Go on, Forest of Lies-fans/creepers. TRY and figure out what's under Marian's name. muwahahaha...

Robin: Aye, ignore the fact that I have "x"s for eyes.

Day 110: Iris

(April 19th.)

My favourite flower.


Day 109: Seashells by the Seashore

(April 18th.)

I actually found this "butterfly shell" still connected--just too many opening and shutting and transporting across the state took its toll.


Day 108: I Have a Little Holly

(April 17th.)

I have a little shadow,
Who goes in and out with me,
And what can be the use of her,
Is more than I can see...

Also: homeschooling. Physics, armchairs, cats, and cameras.

Day 107: Rocking Chair

(April 16th.)

This rocking chair has been adorning various Nairam family decks for about as long as I can remember, in many different colors. Found myself suddenly drawn to it this particular day, with the dried flowers, chipped paint, and shadows...

Day 106: Skylight

(April 15th.)

Home again. I do love my skylights.

Day 102: The Big Blue + Siblings

(April 11th.)

Siblings 'n' water.


Day 101: Sea Foam

(April 10th.)

What it says on the tin. Sea foam. ^_^ I was rather fascinated, to say the least.


Day 100: Creatures

(April 9th.)

Apparently all the pictures I took on this day were of sea creatures we saw stranded (either purposefully or no...) on our older-girls-'n'-mom walk.

So, here is one of them.

Also, this is my 100th picture! Except it's really my 94th, because I've missed 6 and have had to replace them with The Doctor. I suppose 94% isn't too shabby. Hey, I'm still going, at least!


Day 99: Through the Window

(April 8th.)

View from my very pretty room.

Day 98: Pastel Beach

(April 7th.)

Yes, we went to the beach. And it was gorgeous the night we got there.


Day 97: A Gigantic Red Monster Eats My 6-Year-Old Sister

(April 6th.)

I'm very interested in what google searches might land people on this photo.

Day 96: A Good Book

When I go on vacation (Saturday), I will get new material so I won't have to just snap pictures of my belongings.

All the same, you should read this book. It's my favourite of Mr. S.'s. That's of course considering that Curse of the Seer HASN'T COME OUT YET. (Yay, Mr. S. is as slow as I am!)


P.S. I just recently discovered that shadow behind JaRed. Isn't it COOL? (And doesn't it look slightly like the picture must be casting a shadow in this picture?)

Day 95: Choices

(April 4th.)

I have so many college folders at this point that I really need to write on all of the envelopes. Especially the King's ones, since I open those the most often.

Yep, Princeton's one of the colleges I applied for and didn't get into. Princeton or Forest of Lies?

Forest of Lies. Every time.

Especially when King's sends me Christmas cards.


Day 94: Dreams

(April 3rd.)

I am sorry.

I really am.

In my defense, I went to October Baby this day as well...but didn't bring my camera. If I had, you would have a picture of a poster instead.

It's the half-thought that counts, correctamundo?


Day 93: Fail #6

(April 2nd.)

I told you I needed a facepalming one.

Instead, have this picture of Ten looking epic.

I, too, I am hoping this doesn't turn into a Doctor Who pictures only blog.

Though I bet I COULD find 366 epic pictures of David Tennant.

Don't you?


Day 92: Fail #5

(April 1st.)

This is no April Fool's joke, sadly.

I really need a picture of the Doctor facepalming. Does he ever do that?*

*Or is it just all those female people who do it for him?
