It’s been about a month since I did a “snapshots” post and the pictures are building up on my iPhone. Here’s some more extra photos from here and there over the past month. Some from Instagram and Twitter, others I got too lazy to post. But certainly a fun little snapshot into my day-to-day life!
Archie hates it when I stare at a computer screen instead of paying attention to him.
Something he makes quite clear to communicate to me!
Last day at the cottage. Feet up, sunbathing poodle.
Fun fact: I’m not allowed sushi while on chemo (ie raw fish). So California rolls it is.
My stomach is covered in bruises from the two needles I have to give myself daily.
I bruise extra easily because of the blood thinners I’m on. This is just one of the more colourful ones as of late.
Cashew the cat was playing on my laptop keyboard.
What do you think she was trying to tell me??
Worth noting that after this photo was taken, she opened up an episode of 30 Rock.
Snack attack: blueberries and vanilla greek yogurt on a homemade biscuit.
Step-family portrait in a frame from Janetha.
I happen to collect elephant figurines. They’re my favourite animal!
Water tower in Hillsborough, NB.
Severely disappointed the Animaniacs were nowhere to be seen.
One of my favourite meals from all the farm fresh tomatoes I got:
bagel + cream cheese + tomato + S&P
Archie is able to sense when I plan on taking him for a walk.
Even before I put my shoes on or start getting ready, he’ll jump up on this bench and try to get at his leash in the closet.
I recently discovered I have the same haircut now as I did 20 years ago.
But wouldn’t it be awesome if chemotherapy was like drinking a milkshake?
My hobbies have gone from running and working out to knitting and rug hooking.
Painting in the hospital that I think looks like Conan O’Brien, my mom in turn thinks I’m crazy.
I can’t be the only one who sees it?
Attempt at taking cute picture with kitty leads to a kitty attack.
It’s how they show their love, right?
Archie trying to get at his leash again.
That’s the “You finally got off the computer which means you are taking me for a walk!” face.
Randomly had a craving for junk food the other day and bought these items at the grocery store. Only these items.
Scotsburn is the best ice cream other than Cows in the Maritimes, FYI.
Watching Parks and Recreation with Cashew.
Best part of baking = licking the bowl and utensils.
A piece of the coconut cream pie I made for my mom’s birthday!
The crust was meh, but the filling was superb.
Buddy is the most forlorn dog I’ve ever met. Always a frown and big, big sighs.
Brunch at Calactus! Tofu rancheros with a side of potatoes.
Brunch is my favourite time of the week! With my mom and aunt.
Boxers take up significantly more room in bed than poodles.
Buddy patiently waiting for Mommy to come home.
Taken yesterday after finally getting dressed and going for a walk at 5pm. It went up to 27C!
I will never grow tired of living in a small town surrounded by TREES!
The big city was certainly missing that.
Off to get poked and prodded this morning. Have a good one!
I secretly love looking at the random photos people take on their cellphones. Not everyone carries a camera on them, so when life or the mood strikes, the cellphone is often the one that captures the moment. The photos are random and don’t typically string together to tell any kind of story. Compared to say, photos from a vacation. But that is the part I love about them. Tidbits from life that aren’t “important” enough to bring a camera for, but I think are special all on their own.
So today I open up my iPhone for you. I admit, I’ve already shared a lot of these photos of Twitter and Instagram. Some I forgot about, or got too lazy to post. Others are just too good not to put up on the ‘ole blog for everyone else to see.
P.S. Thank you for the feedback on my last post! If you haven’t left any yet, I encourage you to do so. It’s been fun, helpful, and super encouraging :)
