365 Self-Portrait Project (week 45th)

Nothing very interesting has happened this week. The time flew by like… eh… like everything what flies fast… πŸ˜‰


Wait… actually one very interesting thing had happened. I had a family/newborn photo session last Friday. Had so much fun doing it, and  I have learned a few things; One of them was that I will not bring any of my kids to photo sessions (if I have more, of course). No matter how small they are. I thought, I’m doing the right thing, you know, No.2 is the most needy baby ever, she is the “momma needing” baby… so, even for a second I did not think I could leave her with my husband… .

Off we went…   

And I ended up shooting pictures like a super woman. In one  hand the camera, in the other No.2. Believe me, I was so sore the next day, it was hard to move my arms. I was tired, but I was happy tired.



Using Bonnie’s texture “Drips of Rainbow” and merging two pictures together (three if you count the texture), I created this:


Fish lips… Can you do that?! πŸ˜‰


These days it feels like doing the laundry is endless. Folding clean, washing dirty. Never ending circle. I actually hate folding laundry  and now I understand why my mom made us fold our own clothes as soon as we were able to do so… (it means, very early in life!).    


On the way to a doctor we stopped and had lunch at Olive Garden, my husband favorite place. Honestly: I have no idea why he likes it so much. The only thing I can eat there are: their “house salad” and bread sticks. Everything else is just drowned in cheese or so, so salty, it is almost inedible.      

At the doctor:

The doctor said that despite her rich in fiber/s diet (mostly newspapers!!!) she should start eating something else. I am not really looking to it, but wanting it or not… the first tray of tasteless carrot puree was made…

(still life with a twist for Bonnie’s challenge this week)

Photo Art Friday


While I was making this delicious “kale – Italian sausage” soup  

I was accompanied by the scream of No.2.
She can scream like that for as long as it takes you to finally give up and pick her up. Then she sniffles for the next half an hour making you feel guilty for her miserable being…


Just a quick photo shoot before the sunset.

and a funny thing:

Hope you guys are having a decent week, and wishing you even better weekend.

Give me your best shot at Better in BulkPhotoStory Friday
