#JanPhotoADay Project, Week Two
This week of the #JanPhotoADay Project has seen me getting obvious, getting creative, and getting looked at funny (that’s normal, though). Still posting to Instagram (follow me at @knobleg529), and there should be a feed at the bottom of the blog with my most recent IG posts.
I was crazy busy on Monday and my weekly To Do post slipped my mind–I’ll skip this week (mini-update: still doing ok!) and come back next Monday with more. Thanks for being patient!
Without further ado, le photos from Week Two.
Day 8: Your Sky. So, I work on the “ground level” of a building, backed into the side of a hill. So, underground. No sky. No sun. It’s where I spend eight hours a day, Monday through Friday, and this, friends, is my “sky” at work. A bank of fluorescent lights and drop ceiling tiles. Bucolic.
Day 9: Your Routine. My built in closets have afforded me the luxury to have a non-bathroom staging area for a minimal hair and make up routine. That’s it.
Day 10: Your Childhood. The tenth day saw me having dinner and drinks (…and more drinks) with two friends from my youth. One, from when we were two, the other from middle school onward. It was a blast.
Day 11: Where You Sleep. Meet Agnes, Snuffleupagus, and Harry the Hippo. Did I mention that I’m a grown up? So hard to get outta bed (Edith sleeps with us too, but as soon as we’re up for the day, she does her sleeping in her bed or on the couch).
Day 12: Close Up. On Monday, we had a two-hour delay (for….? I have no idea. It was cold-ish?) so I was able to stay home and make myself breakfast. One perfectly runny sunnyside egg, a slice of cheddar, and some leftover hoisin pork belly from the night before, served over some sautéed tortilla. It was just so gorgeous I had to share.
Day 13: In My Bag. Ha! This is my Stella and Dot How Does She Do It bag, comfortably containing the following: one pair of Cole Haan pumps, one umbrella, three reusable shopping bags (grocery shopped after work), two pairs of gloves, an Ann Taintor coin purse, my Ray Ban Clubmasters, my keys/Wmata pass, and another bag, the Stella and Dot Tia Crossbody. I love this big bag so much I have two–this one in black and white, and one in a canvas/metallic ikat pattern. Both are sold out, but they have a few other great patterns in this style, as well as a larger expandable bag called The Getaway (true story: a friend was able to pack for a two week trip to London, Scotland, and the rest of the UK, solely in The Getaway). The Tia is sold out, too (it is amazing!), but they just debuted a new crossbody style that I’m eyeing, the Waverly in navy stripe linen.
Day 14: What I’m Reading. So, I read for pleasure when I can or when I remember. And I usually read on my Kindle App for the iPad, or on my iPhone. Right now, my Library in the app has many options, mostly food writing, food/travel memoirs, a bestselling thriller I haven’t gotten around to, and yes, the Five Love Languages. I’m presently reading the Lonely Planet food essays book in the top left corner.
On to Week Three!
