My day in pictures

This post is inspired by

Mama’s Losin’ It

3. An ordinary day told by photos


Make breakfast.


Build a container ship. Or maybe a plane.



Get dressed.                    Both of us.



 Walk the dog.


Gas up, pick up some bread…


Bath time.                  Bed time.




All photos taken in past weeks. There are also days we do even less, sometimes nothing.

What is your number

I am dreadful with numbers.

Math has never been my strong suit, but as I get older numbers and I struggle to get along even more.

In general the higher the number, the worse. The obvious would be age. And weight off course. Those two I always add, never loose.

Prices I would rather be on the low then high side too. Unless we are valuing something I already own. Then feel free to reverse that statement.

Credit report I believe higher is better too. In fact I treat myself to a free credit score every month just to equal out the universe for the extra five pounds I seem to gain.

Followers to my blog, now that I don’t mind being in the high numbers. The more, the merrier. Twitter followers and facebook likes too. And votes for the photography contest I entered my cute son’s face into. Yes, feel free to add some votes to that please.

I never had a lucky number either. I always liked 7, probably because it is slim and classy looking. I also look back on 127 fondly. It is the number that I told them to put on my ID in 2006 to represent my weight. I remember thinking I need to loose ten pounds to make that statement true. Needless to say I am still living a lie. And adding. Since I am bad at math, I can use that as an excuse.

My son on the other hand is a four kinda guy. It has always been his favorite number. He is four years old. He wants four pieces of everything, even broccoli. No more, no less. 4.

And you?
