Three-Six-Five Week Two: 01-14-10

Now we start to play for real! Chris is hosting Three-Six-Five, so those of us posting a pic a day have a central place to exchange links. Like Chris, I'm gathering mine together for one weekly post rather than posting each one daily.

And away we go!

Day 8 - 01/08/10. Yes, they filled all those vials - and more - with my blood. I was running on empty for awhile.

Day 9 - 01/09/10. Laurie (well, Laurie's hands), putting the final fringe touches on a beautiful shawl she knitted for our friend Tara.

Day 10 - 01/10/10. Fog dancer.

Day 11 - 01/11/10. Kwan Yin, inside and out. Our bedroom windows look out on the courtyard, and two Kwan Yins watch over us.

Day 12 - 01/12/10. This is one of the toddler toys. I hope Laurie isn't teaching them to pick locks, or we shall have to nickname her Fagin!

Day 13 - 01/13/10. Das boot. I know, I know, that translates as The Boat - but the boot feels like a boat when I try to walk in it. This is why I won't be out and about shooting photos for awhile (nothing serious, just wound protection). I'll be staying in for several days trying to find objects of interest to photograph. Oh yes, and reading a lot.

Day 14 - 01-14-10. That's my meditation loft, waaaay up there. I have to climb a ladder to get to it. I haven't been able to do that for awhile. I wonder what's happening up there, besides those cobwebs.

Color Carnival - 01-08-10

Martha hosts this meme about color.

I don't think the lab technician really understood why I wanted to take photos of my blood draw. Hey, it's colorful! I won't show you the blood. Yet.

Macro Monday 01-04-10

Macro Monday - hosted by Lisa

These are close-ups of some bottles in our food co-op bottle wall.

I did a little research on the stamps on the bottles and found the following:

Sand Springs in Tulsa County became one center for the [bottle] industry. As Charles Page developed the town into an industrial center, he induced the owners of several glass factories to locate there. These included in 1913 the Kerr Glass Manufacturing Company, which moved to Oklahoma from Chicago in 1913. Kerr-Hubbard and Kelly Company made lamp chimneys, Sand Springs Glass Company also operated there, Alexander H. Kerr & Company made fruit jars, and the Sand Springs Water Bottle Company prospered. By 1955, however, only Kerr Glass Manufacturing and A. H. Kerr Company remained.

ACQUA della MADONNA is an extrasensory experience. Imported from a 2000 year old spring located in romantic Castellamarre di Stabia, south of Naples, the waters have global appeal. The choice of popes, emperors and other dignitaries for centuries.

More goodies from Kathy's quilting studio.

Weekend Reflections 01-01-10

Weekend Reflections hosted by James. I love catching reflections in windows, mirrors, water, raindrops, so this meme called to me.

Subtle reflections in the flatware. Yes, that's an authentic pineapple upside down cake, made by Claudia for our New Years Day potluck.
