A photo an hour // February 23rd - The Dainty Squid

A photo an hour // February 23rd

Tuesday, February 28, 2012

I came so close to missing out on doing February's photo an hour! February just kind of slipped by in the blink of an eye. Luckily I remembered last Thursday. So here is February 23rd, hour by hour...

7 am // starting the morning with a light workout and some stretches. Someone makes it hard to concentrate!
8 am // doing some blog planning for March.
9 am // finally showered, dressed and ready for the day!
10 am // some more blog planning while my co-worker takes a nap.
11 am // the tastiest lunch! baked potatoes smothered in butter, cheese, pepper and oregano with my favorite drink, chocolate milk!
12 pm // re-painting my nails and plotting future tutorials.
1 pm // looked at the couch beside me and found these two getting their snug on.
2 pm // baked some banana bread. the house now smells heavenly!
3 pm // checked the mail to find some stickers I ordered for Circus Bear Vintage orders.
4 pm // a quick dinner while I wait on Kevin to get home so we can head over to my parents.
5 pm // visiting with baby kitty, my mom's new (and first!) cat. 
Isn't he the cutest?! I just want to squeeze him. His little legs are so short and stubby! He's a fabulous cat, especially for a first time cat mom. I should just be a personal cat picker-outer for a living.
6 pm //  stopped and "visited" with Zip, the family rooster on the way up to the garage
I say "visited" because you can't really visit with someone who hates you and tries to chase you, but only when no one else is out in the yard.
7 pm // family woodshop night, of course. That would be my brother, and his son on the scroll saw (it was his first time, and he did SO good!), my dad in the background at the lathe and Kevin at the other scroll saw.
And that was my day! Sweet and simple, just how I like them! 
xoxo

  6. I love these photo an hour posts you do! And I love sweet and simple days as well. First time cat picker-outer? Awesome profession! I had chickens my whole life growing up, my favorite ever was a rooster named Uno. He wasn't mean though- he was the best pet I ever had, he was trained to come running when I called him and was the best snuggle buddy! Aww. I miss that lil guy. Family woodshop time = classic!

    I also just love photo an hour posts in general!! Such fun.
    I just did one on my blog. My photos always get worse as the day goes on and the light fades, though ... :P

    Check it out if you wish/or are bored. ;)

  13. Love the colors! Although it makes me super-nervous to see someone at a wood lathe with loose-fitting clothing. A girl from my alma mater died last year in a horrible wood lathe accident and I've been conscious of the danger ever since. I do love that your family has an activity like that to do together, though!

  14. I love your photo an hour posts. I'd also love to see a more in-depth look into your blog calendar. It looks sooo organized! I have a huge collection of planners/calendars/notebooks but can never manage to get it just the way I want it.

    BUT!!! more importantly, is that an apple tub??? it is awesome! :D do you mind if I ask where it is from? Please don't say thrifted :( haha!

  24. I love having a peak into your life Kaylah. I need to do this for myself, it must be great to look back on and see how things change subtly over time. Your mom's cat is precious! Will she be introduced to your kitties?

  29. Hey! so i was wondering what do you plan about for your blog in your note books? like in that one picture? I really want to get my blog possibly up to the level of yours but I have trouble knowing what to blog about. btw your mom's kitty looks like a munchkin cat! I would love to have that breed of cat! :) Thanks for providing such a wonderful blog for the world wide web.
