This week was very… hm… I would say “transitional”.
I’m getting to a point where I can fall asleep in almost any position and at any time.
In addition, our losing weight and sleeping all the time Little One transitioned into a very hungry baby who doesn’t want to sleep if we do not hold her. After my husband digged out an old swing chair that issue got a bit easier to deal with, though.
but, enough of my ramblings. lets get to this week self-portraits
On Saturday we went to Babies”R”Us and got a mirror for the back seat. It works great for taking pictures ;) After that we had a wonderful time at the Iris Garden I blogged about a few days ago. It was a perfect day it a perfect place!
Sunday was a lazy day for everybody. Not having the swing chair at the house yet, for almost half of the day I was working as the most comfortable pillow ever.
Monday was really crazy. Trying to have at least one thing done I looked like that:
Our place looks like a battlefield and I actually have no control over it anymore. The food I’ve cooked this past week wasnt’ really very good. I’m too tired or in a hurry while making it. In between screaming infant, begging for attention toddler and begging for food dog (or stealing it from the toddler who later gets so angry because of that) there is a little space left for my attention to be focused on cooking.
I know I will get use to it but for now it’s crazy around here.
In addition this project takes an extra time, as well as blogging which I think I’ll have to limit at some point.
I do not want to stop this project, though, because it brings me a relief for most of the time.
While everything around me is focused on everybody else in this project I can focused on myself. Just for a few minutes per day but it’s always a few minutes more than zero.
Here I was enjoying homemade avocado-spinach-banana ice cream and a quiet “me time” in the bathroom. That quick shower I took in the middle of that day was so nice I didn’t want to go back to that craziness.
Brushing my teeth :)
First that day while checking my emails I saw a great news: I sold my first print EVER!!! Picture of a KETCHUP. That brought a big smile on my face and made my day
A few minutes before I took this picture I got popped on by our No 2. (that’s why I do not have any pants on). It has happened a few times this week and it feels like I will never learn ;)
Later that day I took one more picture which I think is really sweet:
This self-portrait was inspired by Bonnie’s theme for this week:
” a piece of photo art that references, in even the most oblique way, the title of one of your favorite books“.
I do have 3 books on my shelf that are next positions on my to-read list :
– “A World without Women” by David F. Noble,
– “Woman Hating” by Andrea Dworkin,
– “Women who hurt themselves” by Dust Miller.
Those are not my favorite books but I do love to read about women and women’s issues in general.
No wonder one of my favorite books is “Eat, Pray, Love” BUT before it was made into a movie!!!
At the same time the second favorite book on my list is “Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance” by Robert M. Pirsing :)
In addition when it comes to today’s picture, I do feel pretty down lately wondering if it’s just because I’m tired or because my PPD is appearing again :/
Have a great weekend, my friends!
