some things i'm doing
oh hi. of course there are pictures.

Life According to my Cell Phone Pictures

I love cell phone cameras. As soon as they started making cell phones with cameras I was all about having one. Lately, the phone's camera is one of the main things I base my purchase on. A camera with me all the time? Big yes to that.

So sometimes, the best indicators of what I've been doing lately are my cell phone pictures. I'm going to show you some!

Daisy got groomed. I think she likes her hair short, but she really, really hates to be groomed. 


Here she is with some fancy iPhoto filters.


I bought a lot of red things at the farmer's market. 


Also some yellow, green and white things.


That turquoise bag is one they were giving away at the market this past Saturday. They were taking a survey of things like how often do you come here and how many things do you usually buy. You could have a bag if you participated, but you could have one if you didn't participate, too. I totally participated because they took the survey by giving you stickers to indicate your answers. Stickers! If there were stickers in the olden days like there are now, you could have bribed me to do just about anything with a sticker.

I take a lot of pictures of Daisy on my bed. Because it happens a lot at night when I'm not really doing anything, and she's there, and my phone is there. I know I take a lot more pictures of Daisy than I do of Spike, and I'm glad he's a dog so that can't hurt his feelings. He sleeps upstairs. Either with Danny or Hannah or in the hallway between their bedrooms. He takes his watchdog responsibilities seriously. He is the police of our house.


Daisy is so much more relaxed.


Over the weekend, I watched a really, really bad documentary called Still Alive. I've been wanting to see it because it's purported to be a movie about Paul Williams whom I spent a number of my preteen years loving. This movie was not about Paul Williams. He was in it, but it really wasn't about anything. I dare anyone to sum this movie up in one sentence. It has no point. No thesis. Nothing. Lame. I love Paul Williams as much as ever.


As a family, our favorite thing about the farmer's market this year has been the corn. Oh my it's delicious. Thank you farmers! It was scarce this week, and the guy who sold these to me said it was the last harvest of the season. I will miss it dearly. We're having it twice this week.



I always buy a little basil at the market. Almost always anyway. And usually a lot of it goes to waste. This week I decided to freeze some. I followed some directions on line and chopped these up in the food processor, added some of the good olive oil and put them in these ice cube trays. 


We've had an ice maker for a long time, so I didn't have any ice cube trays. I went to the dollar store to pick some up, but the didn't have any. As I was about to leave I noticed these Halloween ice cube trays, to make ice shaped like pumpkins, and figured for a dollar, these would work. I will have little frozen bagel pumpkins.
