It’s time for my self-portraits post.
This week was especially hard for me. I think I’m running out of ideas and I’m getting to a point in my pregnancy where I feel like a whale (literally). I even walk like a whale… I mean, I know whales don’t walk but imagine it for a second. Swinging from right to left while walking… yeah… that’s me!
It’s really hard to point a camera at myself feeling like that. Every time I took a picture and saw it on a camera screen I didn’t like it at all. So I tried again… and again… and again… and I got really tired of trying… and many times I choose to use a picture where I’m blurry somewhere on the background… . Those are my favorite shots. I even don’t feel comfortable with showing my fingers (today’s picture) or toes as they get really swollen more and more often.
This is a page from my daughter’s book which she torn apart.
Now it’s your turn. Look at the mirror and tell me what you see. I hope you see somebody beautiful outside and inside. I hope that at least you feel much more comfortable with what you see than I do.
It supposed to be totally different picture but every time I took a shot I cut out some part of me. I didn’t plan for it to look like those two (two with the least amount of cut parts of me). I took more than 20 pictures and IN EVERY SINGLE ONE there was a part of me missing. This is what you get when you’re too lazy to use tripod essentially :/
Quick peek through the blinds every morning to see what’s going on outside and what the weather looks like. Most of the time the weather is great and most of the time nothing is going on… :)
Ok… I need love but I need some chocolate as well. In my case though, the chocolate part hurts really bad. With every single bite my heartburn grows enormously. Oh well I really need some pleasures these days, even if it lasts for a few minutes only and I’m ready to pay for it with pain.
We’re in the process of potty training. It’s going really good considering that a month ago our daughter screamed her lungs out if we put her on the potty chair without a diaper on. She DID NOT want to sit on that WEIRD HOLE for even a second. It seems like in a few more months we will be done with diapers, not completely though… new pooper will arrive so… the fun will continue.
This week I have learned that I do know how to use an old t-shirt to strain a cheese from the whey but I have no freaking idea how to use a cheese cloth for the same purpose. It makes an interesting subject to use while taking pictures though.
Ok, this picture is totally fake (not in the Photoshop fake way, though). I just don’t paint my nails. NEVER. The last time I did it was 2 or 3 years ago. Seriously. I took this picture because I had this idea wandering through my head for days now.
Wishing you all wonderful weekend.
Warm hugs from my whale-like corner!
