I've been taking pictures of things! And stuff!

I've mentioned a few times recently how I scored a new phone through work - traded in the old clunky "I don't know how to make this work for me" Blackberry for a new "I don't know how to make this work for me either but it's a lot faster and cooler" HTC myTouch HD.  I'll be honest - one of the biggest reasons I wanted a new phone is because I was way jealous of my friends with their smartphones and badass camera features.  The blackberry could take a total of like nine pictures, but they were horrible quality and did I mention it could only hold nine pictures?  Nine is not a lot.  

So I've been playing with this new toy - learning how to download apps, trying to think of apps I need in my life that I've somehow managed to live without for the last 31 years - and I've been taking a lot of pictures.  Not of anything in particular.  Just things.  And stuff.  And I'll be honest - one of the reasons I wanted this new phone so bad and not just another Blackberry reincarnation?  I wanted to do this - take all these pictures of stuff and things...

...and then post them on my blog.  Because you guys care, right?  

Store-bought, or home made?
There's a story here.

Giant Cupcake!
Giant cupcake fall down.

He's begging for food.  He's not supposed to do that.

This is my reading table.
It's on the front porch.
I sit next to it while I read.
Beer cans and bug spray and dog brush and cigs and candy go here.

Those cool editing things you can do with this camera?
It's pretty cool. 

Shouldn't have been speeding.  

Pretty sure Autumn has officially arrived:

I was married to a pilot once.
Planes don't get me too excited these days,
but bi-planes will always be neat.

These prayer flags were given to us by our landlord at Christmas of 2007.
They hang over the gate that leads to the breezeway.
We pass under them twice each day, entering and leaving our home.

Just LOOK at that face!
(Not the floor, just the face.)

Shower cleaner.
Bone of contention.
Devil duck's watching you shower.

When I see a dead stick on the ground, I think "Oooh, that would burn good."
Jimi says I shouldn't say things like that on the internet because people will be scared of me.
I'm not scary.
I just like fire.  A lot.

Hello Mr. Cricket!

Jimini is obviously his name.

He's only interested because he thinks I may have food.
Hey look!  More evidence of Fall:


  1. I love the pictures Natalie!! Oh, and by the way, I am passing along the Versatile Blogger Award to you my friend because you are, well, versatile! Oh, and awesome!

  2. Hi, I'm a new follower from the Weekend Wander and I have to say your blog is anything but boring but the name does pull you in! LOL!

  3. Lovely photos! Thanks for sharing. It makes me want to have a "day in the life of (me)" photo-post. Right now would be a good time with all the amazing fall colors. :)

  4. I love the sweet furry faces, the different colored eyes, the gorgeous leaves and the store bought cookies. Obviously store bought. They're too perfectly round. Please tell me they're store bought. *chokes back sob* Please?
    Did NOT love Jiminy. Uck! Those legs skeeve me right the hell out!

  5. OMG, OMG, OMG:

    1. Your dog has different colour eyes?!?!?! (cool)
    2. Is that a real cricket??
    3. My cat looks exactly like yours! :)

  6. 1. He DOES have different color eyes. When we lived in the ghetto, I'd take him for walks in the park and all the little kids were scared of him because they said his eyes made him look evil. He doesn't have an evil bone in his body.
    2. Completely real cricket. It was just hanging out on my back porch. Just chillin', on his way to a party or something. Once I started taking his picture, he acted like he really had somewhere else to be.
    3. Is your cat a vicious killer too?

  7. RE nr 3 - no, my cat never even makes a sound :)


Please don't make me cry.
