It's Been A Minute!

I haven't blogged since Saturday (meaning I took a day off on Sunday) and it feels like its been a century.  So weird.

This past weekend kind of stunk.  I'm sicker than ever.  Down four pounds- which isn't that big of a deal, but I dropped the 4 pounds in 2 days...  I'm sure its water weight, but its still kind of stinky how sick I feel.   I made some Thai chicken stuff for the kids and hubby tonight, but I stuck to caffine free pepsi and bread... how fun :)
Other than hibernating, we haven't been up to anything.  One could take this as a good or a bad thing. 

On a completely different note, this afternoon, we were watching "Alvin and the Chipmunks," and Maeve said something along the lines of "stupid, stupid, stupid."  No, I don't think stupid is a bad word, but it sounded horrid coming out of my 3 year olds mouth.  In the same second that I asked her where she heard that word from, those 3 obnoxious chipmunks started jumping up and down saying "stupid stupid stupid."  How nice.  I guess I need to screen her movies better.

So a few months ago, while in Florida at a farmers market, I snapped this picture:

I have NO clue who's feet or legs these are.  I do know it ws a girl- probably college aged.  She was sitting, listening to this banjo man.   She was closing her eyes, oblivious to everything that was going on around her.  And she was tapping her toes.  For some reason, I really adore this picture.  It feels rugged and raw.  I have no clue what this girls' story is or where these feet have gone or who they even belong to... maybe its that mystery that I like the most.  Anyway, my sister Emily, made fun of me for taking a picture of "some random girls feet."  I wasn't sure what I'd ever do with the pic, but Allie over at Allie Photography is having a "shoe" contest... and well, I thought of this picture :)  So poo poo on YOU emily :)

Oh... and "Something Different" from the fabulous Faith's blog.

This was one of those luck of the "snap" pictures- I caught a really cool sun ball.  I originally didn't do anything with this photo, because Henry's eyes are closed... but I figured it would be a perfect entry into "Something Different" right? :)

I'm hoping to host a photo contest myself sometime in the near future... I have such a blast looking and linking up with everyone.  We shall see if I can come up with something... I am probably the least computer-tech person ever, meaning I have no clue how to make a button or anything like that.  Anyhow, its just a thought :)

I think that's all for now...

Happy Monday (night)!
