365 Self-Portrait Project (week 13)

This week we are still 3 people (plus dog) household. Next week that is going to change and I can’t wait. I think, I am more scared that anything else. We are going to have TWO KIDS!!! When did that happen 😉


Saturday was a lazy day from what I remember. It rained all day with a few breaks and during one of them I took a tripod and my camera outside and in a hurry I took this picture.


Sunday was unbelievable boring. Gosh, I thought I’m going to kill myself. Wandering around the house I got so grumpy and cranky that at some point I just lied down trying to relax and just be, but that didn’t last for a long time. Anyway I was so happy when that day finally ended.


It suppose to be a picture of my necklace but with about 20 pictures taken non was with the right focus so… that is the best one.


I had planned for this picture to be completely different BUT as you can see on the second picture to take it was almost impossible with my Little Darling standing in front of me trying to eat that strawberry. Too bad I couldn’t take a photo of her from up front. She was standing with her mount wide open hoping I will give it to her and I finally did.

… and of course the dog is always where I am. These two always follow me whenever I go. So these days the only place I can hide and have some “me time” is my bathroom but that works when my husband is around. If he is not those two are in the bathroom with me as well (no matter what).


Don’t know how to explain that self-portrait.

That day I was in a mood of something different and I was celebrating one week to my surgery 🙂


Taking this picture I thought that I have to make one week of my selfies devoted just to my rings. These days my fingers are too swollen to wear them but normally my rings are very important part of me. This one is the oldest ring I have. It’s almost 15 years old and there was a long period in my life in which I wouldn’t go out without it. If that happened and I noticed that it’s not on my finger I went back home to put it on. Good old days 😉


Yesterday I started to crochet a scarf for newborn pictures. I have some ideas for when our Little Sister gets home and I thought I need some pictures props. I’m planning to make some nice and easy head bands, too.

I would’ve be done by now with this scarf but I run out of yarn. Gotta visit Michaels today.

Have a great weekend, my friends.

    1. thank you for visiting. I appreciate it!


  9. interesting post. I really love that black and white shot, Hope everything will work fine when the baby arrives. 🙂


    1. thank you! we hope for that too!


  10. these are all wonderful. all my best to you and your family over the coming days.


  11. Yes, good luck indeed! I love these photo’s, my fave is definitely the silhouette, just so beautiful 🙂


    1. thank you, so much! I’m glad that so many people like that silhouette. I wasn’t sure about it at first!


  12. Oh, I just loved every single one of them! 🙂 You’re so creative. The one in the shadow that you didn’t know how to explain was my favorite. Well, it was a tie with the first one. And the ring story was so interesting! I used to wear one on every finger. I did it for years. Then I finally lost all that extra weight and the only one that will fit really is the one that I used to wear on my pinky finger. Now it fits on a normal finger. How do you say pinky finger in Polish? Is it the same word?


    1. the pinky in Polish is simply called “small finger”. there is no other name for it 🙂
      The ring on this picture has changed fingers, too. I was much bigger when I got it. these days normally (when I am not swallen) I’m wearing it on my thumb. It’s the only finger I can wear it and not hurt my daughter. It’s got that sharp end and it always scratches her. now I’m kind of used to not wearing anything and I don’t know if I’ll get back to wearing them as I was before.

      As for your avocado tree (again I couldn’t comment on your post even with my twitter account):
      I planned two last year and they looked like this after a few months:


      Before winter started Jay trimmed it almost all the way down. There was only a few inches of a bare sticks. They stayed like that for the entire Winter. About 6 weeks ago one of those trees started putting on many new leaves. It looks great. As for the second one is not doing anything. No leaves, no dying. It just is.

      So, I don’t know, maybe you should trimm it.


  13. Stopping by from Mommy & Me Monday. Great photos.


  14. Great shots! She will be here soon!! Good luck!
