The Secret Life of Blogger's Blog Party 12/20/2014-12/28/2014

I have decided to start these again; however, they will be like when I first started doing this for the month of June 2013  instead of how they were between January until August 8, 2014 (when I put a break to them - see May 16 for how involved they were). I have decided that I will do these every Saturday or Sunday (probably Saturday, though) instead of Friday and like in June 2013... one or two pictures per day and a brief explanation instead of multiple pictures and a lot of writing like for the first half of 2014. I want my blog to be mostly about my writing, cooking/crafting and photography, but I like the Secret Life exercises to get a bit of my personal life without being too personal like before. Let me know what you think! Enjoy!

I finally brought the disposable film camera from the Twiztid concert and Halloween to the Camera Shop to be developed. They were done on Friday and dad took me to Bryn Mawr to pick them up on Saturday. Sadly, only half of the pictures developed for some reason. :( Here are a few:

This one was from the concert - the only two that developed. Didn't do a great job of capturing (the disposable). I'm glad I brought my digital and the Twiztid picture was taken with my digital camera rather than disposable! I seem to have bad luck with disposable.

I love this. This was before the rose died a week before Thanksgiving (this was taken at the end of October).

I love Daphne!

I have to post this because every time I see this picture, I laugh. Dad and I were shopping for mom's Christmas gift (Pandora charms) and we saw this in one of the shop windows.

My jersey came today along with a free shirt, free sticker and a card from Madrox and Monoxide that came with my order. This made me happy.

I love the funny faces my dad makes sometimes. He knew I was watching him grate cheese and loved the face he was making.

We began soaking the cod for the baccala we were going to make on Christmas morning:

Enjoying the baccala.

Making absinthe.


Our cherry cheesecake that we had for dessert.

I went back to work at the library and wanted to get a picture of the book Christmas tree with my DSLR camera. I think this is such a great idea. I love the book tree!

I am watching the chickens for my aunt. Today they had a good breakfast of scrambled eggs (yes. my aunt and uncle said they love their eggs and they will eat anything... like pigs) and bread.

I love the card and candy I received from Elle. Elle is my penpal on from New Zealand.

Still watching the chickens.

    1. Oddly enough, it does! I haven't had Fresca in a good 15 years, though...

  2. I remember when you posted that autocorrect snowman a short while ago; interestingly enough, on one of the pages I follow I saw it again (or one like it, anyway). Still, as far as I am concerned, you're the first to post it! :D

    Making absinthe? I don't really know what it is but it's pretty neat that you created your own alcohol.

    1. Well, I didn't make the alcohol. You can't drink absinthe without sugar and water mixed I should have said I mixed it. :)

      Hmm... you might have to send me a link! I want to see who else came up with the autocorrect snowman!
