Day 29: I Feel Like Such a Grownup Today

There's something about making homemade soup that somehow leaves me feeling like a culinary superhero..maybe it has something to do with having grown up on canned soup as a kid.

There might be crazies and it might be crowded, but it beats trying to find parking downtown any day.

Day 27: Sparkly Pretties

This is my unworn skinny dress...someday I WILL fit into it. Until then, it'll be hanging on my closet door.

It was the best shot I could get tonight with my cat, Katie, trying to make a run for it when the patio door was open (poor thwarted kitty).

Day 8:Peekaboo

I confess. I always check through my peephole before leaving the apartment to make sure nobody is out there who would see how messy my apartment is at times :)

Day 5: Carrying their Burden Bravely

I love how these leaves and branches are able to carry the weight of the snow without bending to it.

Day 4: Turning the Corner on Winter

I got to leave a little early from work today so I was able to enjoy a little sun despite the cold. My spirits always get a boost when the days start getting a little longer.

Day 3: Brr, Baby, Brr

I love when Lake Michigan starts to freeze. It always creates this cool kaleidoscope effect.

Day 2: The Kindness of Friends

I got this from a friend  a few years ago as a gift for my birthday. It's a happy reminder to call her soon to get together for lunch.

Day 1: Something to Make Me Smile

This appeared a few days after my cat,Data, crossed over. Somehow my hallway light took my couch, the bottom half of a cat carrier and a pillow and gave me this. I like to think of it as a sign that Data is saying hello.
