new year instagramps part 1

I mentioned doing an instagram challenge awhile back. The concept is that every day, you take a picture on a given theme. Today the theme is "something I bought..." so I chose this:

green tea I bought to bring to work.

Here's a sampling of the other days so far:

Tomorrow I'll photograph "something sweet." And yes, photograph. I remember a few years ago when iPhone photos from one of the American wars was nominated for a POY award. Beautiful things can be made this way. If they are sincere, who are we to discount them?

on moving forward

Aaron finally made it down to Montgomery for good. on Sunday. Before he arrived, I started watching Felicity on Netflix, cleaned the house & did laundry, cooked and generally did my best to soak up my last little bit of living alone. Crazy. ...and I said I'd never have another roommate.

Yesterday we finally made it over to Horse Pins 40 for some bouldering. We ate Chick-Fil-A in Prattville and Chipotle in Hoover and scored a good deal on a hang board for the apartment, and I found a three-year-old down Patagonia vest for half-off. The very friendly folks at Mountain High Outfitters told me it had been lost in a warehouse for years... I think it was waiting for me. It may be my new favorite clothing item.

Basically, a pretty good three-day weekend with lots to look forward to this week: unpacking, seeing my aunt on Thursday and getting paid again!
