365 / 15 through 18

Today I lost an earring.  Which sounds like one of those things that just happens, not a huge deal.  But if you know me at all, you know that I never change my earrings.  I mean never.  They were my grandmother's earrings and they have probably been out of my ears about 10 times in the last 20+ years that I have had them.  So, my head feels a wee bit unbalanced today. 

I'm going to keep this one short since I'm all crooked. 

Tuesday's theme was "nut."  I had a few ideas for that one.  I thought for sure I could get a squirrel shot, since they are pretty plentiful these days.  But the squirrel that came by on Tuesday was really more of an apple guy, no nuts.

Then the cat got a little crazy.  I thought I could catch him at it.  And I did manage to get a quick shot of him thinking he was king of the maple tree, but not sure it had the "nut" quality I was looking for.  Trust me, this cat is pretty insane, but he acts all cool when the camera comes out.   See how he has that one ear back just a little, as if to say, "yeah, I'm on top of the tree, nothing nutty going on here, please move along."

And then I came across this beauty that I took a few days ago and I knew I had a winner.  Because my oldest son is a a true blue NUT.  Bonus points for including the cat.  Told ya he was insane.  I mean, look at him, pretending he is a hat.  NUT.

Wednesday the theme was "jumbled."  Things are always jumbled around here, but I wanted a shot of the kids - and true to form someone didn't cooperate, so these are kind of lacking focus, but I still like that I got all the kids in one place.  In a jumble on the floor.   First shot, color was off, focus was off, adjusted my settings and well - it was too late.

Guess who wasn't cooperating?  Here's a hint:  She is missing from the next photo:

Thursday was "favorite toy" and I got a few cute ones:

And since it was bath time too, I took a few to embarrass her with later.  I love her mermaid hair:

And then today was "a doorway."   I chose the doorway of my girl's little hiding place that she set up in her room.  She goes in there and reads and plays and watches movies on her mini DVD player that was a present from grandma.  I don't know how she has any room to sit in there with all the junk she piles inside, but she likes it and I have to admit that it looks cozy.

So, that's what I did this week.  Among other things.  This weekend the themes are "Bright" and "Playing."  I think those sound easy, but then again, my head is crooked so it might be harder than I think.
