Snapshot of a day

This morning I got up early (as usual), made a smoothy and then headed to the gym.  I had today off and had planned spending the morning working on my landscape plan for our front yard. My landscaping/designer friend was even going to come over and help me except she called to reschedule at the last minute.  So, I made myself a decaf coffee and checked my emails.  Then I thought that since I wasn't very fashionable instead I would give you a peek into my day.

Our kitty sat and watched me as she dozed off.

I checked email and listened to the radio (well, not THIS one:).  This radio was my grandfathers and it was the only thing I wanted of his when he passed away. Its a shortwave radio and I used to listen to international stations with him when I was young.

My favorite teapot I bought because I thought it was beautiful. Its not very practical though because the metal handle gets too hot when you have tea in the pot so you have to use a towel or oven mitt to lift it up to pour :(  probably why it was at the thrift store!

Our cute little vintage/retro salt and pepper shakers. The cat is salt and the fish airplane is pepper :)

I headed off into the pouring rain to do some photography and experiment with the new remote.

Jeans and jacket. That's me unplugged :)
I'm part of an online photography group and am currently doing a 365 challenge (a photo a day for 365 days) so I took advantage of having the day off to go practice my photography skills. I found a funky old vintage store with lots of cool things in it. What do you think?

Back home, I had a snack and wait til the man gets home and we are going for beer and a burger with an awesome couple that we train (triathlon) with.  Thats a snapshot of my friday.

What plans do you have this weekend?

  1. Damn, girl! You keep impressing the heck out of us. Love the photography and the home decorations. You have style! The cat on a fish salt/pepper shakers are delightful. And an old shortwave radio from your granddaddy?! Priceless.
