Well, I lasted nine months. Which is eight and a half months longer than most of my New Years resolutions...


I haven't done any recipes for a while. And I keep on getting behind on photos. And... I'm not going to keep berating myself for it.

As it is, I've improved my cooking skills and confidence in the kitchen - which was the point of that. And I've started noticing a lot more pretty things around me, and whipping out my camera spontaneously more - which was the point of that. So it worked.


Sorry, guys - I think I'm letting them lapse. I'll still get photos and recipes up from time to time, but I'm not keeping to a set schedule right now.






In other news:
- my housemates have moved out
- I have a new tv
- my new jobs are awesome
- I'm learning Indonesian, Latin, and French, and wishing I had enough time to revise my German and Auslan
- the world is extremely rainy
- Leverage is really fun

Here they are again!

Day 239:


I have NEVER been this close to a kookaburra in my life before. SO VERY CLOSE.

More photos!


Day 232:


I seem to remember, when I was younger, everyone had a collection of spoons from the different locations they'd visited...

This was a more unusual way of displaying them, and I found it rather interesting.

(Yes, folks, I'm still alive.)


Day 225:


This is my really cool thermometer. It was a 21st birthday present, and has lived in my bedroom ever since.

Extremely useful - especially since it's so big and colour-coded. I can look blearily across the room, and find out the temperature when I'm still in my nice warm bed...

Photos!

deird1: Sokka, with the picture he painted (Sokka picture)
I really was planning on getting this out weekly, again. Unfortunately, I'm just not that organised.


Day 211:


A game of Scrabble. (Which I won.)

I think I was proudest of getting "equip".

deird1: Joey and Pacey at the prom, with text "I remember everything" (Joey Pacey remember)
(NB - If you've written anything on LJ this week, I haven't been able to read it. Let me know if it's something I should go back and find...)


Day 197:


What do you do when you don't have a pizza cutter? Use scissors!

I thought it was rather hilarious, and took many pictures.

deird1: a chibi of Kitty from P&P, with text "what do you keep winking at me for?" (Kitty winking)
Day 183:


This is a food court that's supposed to look like a village.

It's pretty fun, actually. There's a single menu, and they bring food out to your table - like a restaurant - but it's got lots of different food options that you go and order - like a food court. I had mango chicken and garlic naan bread. 'Twas all extremely yummy.

Day 176:


Caleb has figured out how to use a swing by himself; Nathan has figured out that swings exist.

(Belated photos are belated.)

Day 169:


We went to a wedding at St Jude's - which is an old church in the city that still looks old (stained glass windows, and so forth), but also has been redecorated in funky colours.

This wall didn't look quite so green when I was there...

deird1: Lilah having just beheaded Linwood, with text "promoted" (Lilah promotion)
Here we go again!

Day 162:


Sister #2, blowing bubbles.

We all went to the park for the morning, and the nephews rode around on tricycles (displaying great enthusiasm, and a tendency to crash).

deird1: Buffybot and Dawn, with text "ceci n'est pas une soeur" (this is not a sister) (Buffybot (french sister))
Yes, I know I'm late again...

Day 155:


This is a silent auction. In a very LOUD location.

(We were at a trivia night. I was taking photos on my phone because I'd forgotten my camera - hence the not-so-interesting nature of the picture. Sidenote: isn't it weird that these days I can lose my camera, shrug, and use my backup camera?)

Here are last week's photos.

Day 148:


We had dinner with some friends on Saturday - with yummy Asian food cooked at the table.

It was rather pretty, so I had to take a picture.

This week's photos are rather late again... (Someday I will be punctual, I swear.)

Day 141:


This is... a sheep. A ceramic garden sheep. Kinda like a garden gnome.

I asked Mum why on earth someone would buy a garden sheep, and she said "...to keep the grass short - at least if it was a real one."
We concluded that the garden sheep, being ceramic, needed to go in a garden of fake grass, to keep that nicely trimmed.

My home internet has gone veeeerrrryy sssslloooowwww suddenly, so I had to come down to my parents' house to use theirs...

Day 134:


Here is Alex, extremely excited over his birthday cake. He's now five!

Here are some more photos...

Day 127:


Here's me! In a photo I took myself! (Apparently my camera has a time-delay setting.)

I'm holding Michael here, while he's actually awake, which is a rare but lovely event.

Photo post!

Day 120:


This is the least blurry photo I managed to take...

I was in a car on "The Black Spur" (a very perilous, very pretty road), and wanted to take a picture to show you all the gorgeous gum trees in the lovely rainforesty bits. But the car was travelling rather fast.

deird1: chibis of Kitty and Lydia from P&P, with text "fangirls at large" (Kitty Lydia fangirls)
Here's another week of photos.

Day 113:


To start with, a photo of photos!

These are by [livejournal.com profile] babyslime, who is a professional photographer. I bought these to help her business - thus getting the nice feeling of doing something helpful, and the nice feeling of having pretty things, both at the same time...

Back on schedule!

Day 106:


This was the Saturday wedding, in which I played piano.

It was held in my church - which is, I think, one of the prettier churches to get married in.

deird1: Dawn raising an eyebrow, with text "srsly?" (Dawn srsly)
Rather unsurprisingly, with the events of this weekend I haven't had much time to post these...

Day 99:


Still at the camp (just like photo #98). This one was taken from the stairs over the dining room, looking down.

I wish I'd taken the time to get a better shot, but I was in a hurry.

Here's a (belated) week of photos...

Day 92:


Food from a kitchen tea!

You can see here butterfly cakes, brownies, caramel slice, and fairy bread. We also had cucumber sandwiches, salmon sandwiches, cheese, dips, and about a zillion slices. We're still using up leftovers.
