the leaves are finally turning on Third.
310/365 :: Tuesday 6 November 2018
it rained all day. I only left the apartment to vote and send some mail. I came back home to bake velvet brownies as a reward for voting. (:
311/365 :: Wednesday 7 November 2018
when your vintage suitcase matches one of the rooms at the vintage hotel where you work, you have to get a couple photos!
312/365 :: Thursday 8 November 2018
new aloe, officially dead jade. (whoops.)
313/365 :: Friday 9 November 2018
...and it's snowing.
314/365 :: Saturday 10 November 2018
I hate winter.
315/365 :: Sunday 11 November 2018
I like the snow from this viewpoint when it looks like frosting.
295/365 :: Monday 22 October 2018
the beginnings of a beautiful song. trust the bottle.
296/365 :: Tuesday 23 October 2018
almost full moon. but it was the hunter's moon, not the harvest moon as my brain decided it was. you would think that I would know that the harvest moon is in September like the Harvest Fest in Sturgeon Bay, but alas, my brain hasn't worked for a long time now.
297/365 :: Wednesday 24 October 2018
boots are just leg pockets.
298/365 :: Thursday 25 October 2018
visiting guitar in a lobby of locals.
299/365 :: Friday 26 October 2018
I can't even type the chorus to this song because it will be stuck in my head.
300/365 :: Saturday 27 October 2018
finale. Step into the Light.
301/365 :: Sunday 28 October 2018
souvenirs of a wonderful week.
302/365 :: Monday 29 October 2018
this sunset reminds me of a crown.
303/365 :: Tuesday 30 October 2018
I almost dropped the glass on the upper left while washing dishes. it was kind of a miracle that I caught it because there were quite a few other breakable things in the sink where it would have landed, and that would have been a mess.
304/365 :: Wednesday 31 October 2018
happy Halloween, witches! (;
I actually kind of got lost in this cemetery in Green Bay. it's the biggest one I've been to thus far and rather enjoyed my hour-long photography hike and will probably be back.
305/365 :: Thursday 1 November 2018
I spent so much of my time on editing photos (only 1200-some from two shows at TAP...) that it took me far too long to get through reading these picture books as a pre-screen for my preschoolers. I didn't even realize that the top one was in Spanish and therefore of no use to someone whose Spanish is limited to greetings, counting to ten, a few basic phrases, and "pimp daddy." thank you, ten days in Ecuador.
the book on the bottom is more of a coffee table book from my favorite illustrator, and I am enjoying taking the time to look through and read about his processes.
306/365 :: Friday 2 November 2018
altered view. please don't ask me why I currently own three copies of this book. if we're counting audiobooks too, I actually have five copies...
307/365 :: Saturday 3 November 2018
the trees are changing downtown, and the gas price has dropped nearly a quarter. honestly, if I didn't live this close to a gas station, I would never know how much gasoline costs.
308/365 :: Sunday 4 November 2018
fallen leaves are my favorite.
288/365 :: Monday 15 October 2018
fun things!!! I look forward to my Pipsticks delivery every month!
289/365 :: Tuesday 16 October 2018
just around the curve, more leaves that are just a couple days past peak so you think that they look horrible on the trees since they're drier than you were hoping they would be.
290/365 :: Wednesday 17 October 2018
another cemetery visit.
291/365 :: Thursday 18 October 2018
my very favorite illustrator came out with another new book!
292/365 :: Friday 19 October 2018
293/365 :: Saturday 20 October 2018
it's the cat's pajamas. (do people still say that?)
294/365 :: Sunday 21 October 2018
wham. a new Holiday Motelecaster.
281/365 :: Monday 8 October 2018
a quick cemetery visit. I think that the leaves are prettier when they're on the ground rather than on the trees.
282/365 :: Tuesday 9 October 2018
my spider friends are okay as long as they stay on the outside of my windows.
283/365 :: Wednesday 10 October 2018
dusty purple sunrise.
284/365 :: Thursday 11 October 2018
finally, blue skies and white clouds instead of all grey all day.
285/365 :: Friday 12 October 2018
feeling like an autumnal basic bitch since my momager bought me a giant caramel apple.
286/365 :: Saturday 13 October 2018
last week, I rescued thirteen books at Goodwill (for sixty-five dollars). the first two Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children were two of those books (and six of the other eleven were Harry Potter books), which I started reading this week. the first one hundred pages or so were pretty slow, but I'm really enjoying the story now. (and the vintage photos are crazy cool.)
287/365 :: Sunday 14 October 2018
I love watching the leaves appear all shiny and new.
274/365 :: Monday 1 October 2018
the last time I bought candles, Bath & Body Works didn't have the scent that I was looking for, but they had some horoscope ones and my sign (Leo) had the scent that was actually pretty close to what I was looking for. I often had this one burning while watching Six Feet Under, so that's what the scent now reminds me of. (my mom is going to be so annoyed that I ended the last two sentences with prepositions.)
275/365 :: Tuesday 2 October 2018
a new journal for writing lists.
276/365 :: Wednesday 3 October 2018
early morning wasp was hanging out on the outside of my window for at least an hour.
277/365 :: Thursday 4 October 2018
I just really love old postcards for places like restaurants, hotels, schools, hospitals, and churches. some of those places just seem like odd places to have a postcard for, but I kind of which that it was still a thing that happened today.
278/365 :: Friday 5 October 2018
a tiny coloring project.
279/365 :: Saturday 6 October 2018
this cheerful chinchilla came in an Etsy order. isn't he cute?
280/365 :: Sunday 7 October 2018
October, the one month a year where quite a bit of the decor in my apartment doesn't seem strange. additionally, six of these seven photos were taken in the same room because I preferred staying in for most of the week.
267/365 :: Monday 24 September 2018
I almost typed August there...how has this year flown by so fast? floating leaves in Sister Bay are certainly a sign that fall is officially on its way. I annoyed a couple seagulls on the dock.
268/365 :: Tuesday 25 September 2018
unicorn mail! (I got a unicorn shirt in the mail that day too.)
269/365 :: Wednesday 26 September 2018
dessert from SAP in Appleton after turning into the section during some roadwork. fun, embarrassing times. this is a malted milk cheesecake with Door County cherry sauce and a chai macaron.
270/365 :: Thursday 27 September 2018
(sometimes - last photo - I can take an in-focus photo using manual focus, but apparently other times - this photo - I can't take an in-focus photo using auto focus.)
one of the perks of living in an area with Scandinavian heritage is that I can find some nice Swedish children's books at the library!
271/365 :: Friday 28 September 2018
on Tuesday, one of the guests asked me if I really liked roosters. it took me a moment to realize that she was asking because my back was to her and she was looking at the rooster tattoo on the back of my arm. on my way into Appleton on Wednesday, I was listening to an episode of My Favorite Murder where Karen and Georgia were talking about the different animals that were related to their family members and buying them animal figurines for presents. so when I saw this calavera rooster at Target, I knew I had to get it for myself.
272/365 :: Saturday 29 September 2018
273/365 :: Sunday 30 September 2018
I think my succulents aren't loving this weather.
260/365 :: Monday 17 September 2018
it took me eight hours to wash four loads of laundry.
261/365 :: Tuesday 18 September 2018
sunrise reflection. maybe one day I'll go outside again to watch the sun rise.
262/365 :: Wednesday 19 September 2018
I visited a cemetery in Egg Harbor during a break in the rain. it was then that I decided that I'm going to make it a point to visit all of the cemeteries in Door County. I've knocked a few out in the past few years, but I think I'm going to need a map and a list to make sure that I get them all.
263/365 :: Thursday 20 September 2018
when you need to buy Tarnex, but you just don't feel like dealing with one more thing.
264/365 :: Friday 21 September 2018
my aunt and uncle just have all of the coolest things. I love all of the crystals, rocks, and plants the best, especially this succulent!
265/365 :: Saturday 22 September 2018
sending fun mail + supporting small businesses.
266/365 :: Sunday 23 September 2018
finishing my eighty-first book of the year.
253/365 :: Monday 10 September 2018
Lake Michigan before lunch in Algoma with my grandma. we had a nice time, and I am forever connected to this lake and its sparkling waves.
254/365 :: Tuesday 11 September 2018
souvenirs from Algoma. isn't this planter that my grandma gave me just great? [see also: I have a habit of picking up rocks at the beach and just dropping them into my purse.]
255/365 :: Wednesday 12 September 2018
I've been looking at these words on this building for years. in fact, some of my senior pictures were taken here. I know that the last two words are "Exchange Bank" and that the first room is probably on the front of the building, but I can never remember what it's supposed to be.
256/365 :: Thursday 13 September 2018
"you deserve all the best, but you need to be the one to give it to yourself." - 24-year-old Teresa to 25-year-old Teresa
257/365 :: Friday 14 September 2018
why are the dimensions on this photo different than all of the others? I don't know, probably because I managed to forget to take a photo on my DSLR and only have a handful of photos on my phone from this day.
258/365 :: Saturday 15 September 2018
street festivals mean that I'm not even opening the curtains. I love the way that the cord happened to be twisted into a heart.
259/365 :: Sunday 16 September 2018
two books with titles that start with "Girl." two books with a female character named Charlie. two books about difficult subjects. one book I haven't yet started among the stack of current library checkouts.
246/365 :: Monday 3 September 2018
I am not going to miss that bench.
247/365 :: Tuesday 4 September 2018
apartment aesthetic: books, plants, IKEA, and exposed brick.
248/365 :: Wednesday 5 September 2018
this is part of why I teach preschoolers.
249/365 :: Thursday 6 September 2018
morning light jade shadow.
250/365 :: Friday 7 September 2018
I ordered a couple new pairs of pants from AEO. you can now customize the back tag, so of course I had to get a gold one. the writing on the pocket inside the pants made me laugh though, because who honestly writes their name inside their clothes anymore? should I be concerned that I might confuse my pants with someone else's?
251/365 :: Saturday 8 September 2018
lots of fun things in the mailbox today.
252/365 :: Sunday 9 September 2018
gold stars always.
232/365 :: Monday 20 August 2018
I thought that having a couple weeks off from the Y would make me feel like I had a little more time to get things done, but I still kind of feel like I'm running circles around myself. this plant and its new leaves make me smile.
233/365 :: Tuesday 21 August 2018
I'm constantly falling behind on keeping up with my one sentence a day journal. but clearly, I need to clean my desk too.
234/365 :: Wednesday 22 August 2018
Aldi number five. it would be my favorite if it wasn't so far away.
235/365 :: Thursday 23 August 2018
a day to breathe and get some things done that I've put off for too long.
236/365 :: Friday 24 August 2018
when you finally respond to the note that you received over two months ago...
237/365 :: Saturday 25 August 2018
clouds. so many clouds lately.
238/365 :: Sunday 26 August 2018
there are often leaves (is that the right word?) falling off this guy. he's my favorite though.
239/365 :: Monday 27 August 2018
not my vehicle, but I'll pretend for a couple mornings. it's definitely weird switching from a Beetle to a Wrangler, getting used to it after a little over a day, and then switching back and feeling so low to the ground again.
240/365 :: Tuesday 28 August 2018
a different cemetery wandering.
241/365 :: Wednesday 29 August 2018
right before finding some books I've been looking for at Goodwill, including a hardcover first edition copy of Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince. it's so sad to watch stores that have been around for as long as I can remember closing.
242/365 :: Thursday 30 August 2018
that one time that I considered stealing a dog.
243/365 :: Friday 31 August 2018
when you leave your gently used guitar pick in your room when you leave, it might become mine.
244/365 :: Saturday 1 September 2018
when summer starts turning to autumn.
245/365 :: Sunday 2 September 2018
