I am so very, very bad. I cannot believe I forgot to do this. I guess with the wedding post and then baby showers and then baby births, it just fell out of my mind.
Nevertheless, I am very embarrassed.
So lets do this!

Natasha also sent me David Usher CD's, which are not so easy to get here. I love Natasha. And she sent me this. It hangs in my kitchen window, so I see it every day and think of her. And since making more friends who live in Canada, it makes me think of them too. So this was taken for Natasha, Charity and Brigitte.

|Day 334: The Classics bookshelf.|
Middle shelf: All my pretty classics in alphabetical order.
Bottom shelf: Middle shelf continued, and then poetry books (stacked horizontally) and then Greek plays and classics and Shakespeare.
The order of this bookshelf changes often, according to the space available. When I needed more space on my fiction bookshelf, my Harry Potter and J.R Tolkien books were kept here. Sometimes I arrange the sets of books together - see, there are different sets of classics that are all bound the same way and sometimes I like those grouped together. Currently, I am running out of space again and need a new bookshelf. Or two.

Kat sent me a recipe for Nutella microwave mug cake. Haven't tried it yet. And oddly enough, I do not like Nutella on French toast . . .
|Day 345: Charging...|
This is my phone, my iPod and my Kindle charging. And my carpet looks much nicer in this photo than it does in real life.
|Day 347: Feetsies at 32 weeks.|
So sweet! Mousie, if you read this, THIS is the scan that the charm on your charm bracelet represents!
|Day 348: Sorting, sorting, sorting.|
This is what I'm supposed to be working on in the dungeon . . . Progress has been made. These piles have now been sorted into boxes. For further sorting. Sigh.
|Day 349: I want to marry this book.|
Oh my gosh. This book. I ordered this as a very special present for me. Just for scoz. And it is the most wonderful book ever. If you are a fan of Supernatural, you need this book. Just believe me.
|Day 350: It's good for you. And 15 days left!!!|
Sis gets these teas for me from an alternative type shop near her. Well, nearer her than me. She also got my mom a Book of Shadows from that same shop. And incense and candles and triquetra amulet. It's that type of shop. What are they called . . .? There's a word, but damned if I can think of it. Anyway, she got me a headache tea too. I honestly do not know if they actually work, but I do feel soothed drinking them. Plus the cold and flu tea is yummy. So is the headache one.
|Day 351: Popping Corn!|
Did any of you see that X-Files episode where Billy Drago is that weird hoodoo, hillbilly type guy who is after a doctor who let his daughter die. He ends up making Scully blind and causing all sorts of problems before the good guys win. In the beginning of the episode, he's looking at a vending machine like he's never seen one before, which he hasn't, and sees that it offers popcorn and he says "popping corn!" and chooses some popping corn. Turns out it's microwave popcorn and he's totally confused before an irritated bystander shows him how to use the microwave nearby. Um. Actually, remembering it now, he ends up being very interested in this new fangled invention and puts a voodoo doll in the microwave. Not very nice for the person who the voodoo doll represented.
So now every time I see popcorn I think "popping corn" just in that creepy way he said it. That is a very convoluted peak into the workings of Nikki's mind for y'all.
|Day 352: Cuddly curled up cat.|
Here you see a very snuggly picture of Sam, my not so snuggly cat.
|Day 353: A grainy and blurry photo of a storm over the street where I live.|
More storm. It actually looked a lot more ominous than it looks in this photo.
|Day 354: New book!|
There was a sale at my book buying club. This hardcover book filled with poems was ridiculously cheap. Worm and Mary and I discuss poetry quite a bit on twitter (mainly Keats, coz Mary lurves Keats and she's infecting the rest of us) and they've rekindled my interest. Regardless, this is a lovely book and it smells wonderful.
|Day 354: Books, glorious books!|
I pass this every day on my way to the dungeon. It's really rather nice.
|Day 355: If I had a hanger! I'd hanger in the... morning... Erm...|
Sis bought him for me! Isn't he lovely?
|Day 356: Nesting.|
THIS was the result of our baby shopping day. Man, that was fun!
|Day 357: The mostly non-fiction bookshelf|
This bookshelf is not as ordered as I'd like it to be. I want it to be according to subject matter, but there is just not enough space. So this is more or less how it's arranged:
Top: My collection of old cameras. I bought my first one at an antique market and since then people have given me the rest, including, my Dad, Sian, a wonderful lady I used to work with, the curator of one of the university museums I used to work at, and Darren. There is also a Nikon there that used to belong to my grandfather. I used it for a while, but then it stopped working and I mean to get it repaired but . . .
Top left box: Archaeology books.
Top middle box: Books about South Africa.
Top right box: Art and European history.
Middle left box: General history of South Africa and Africa.
Middle right box: Ancient history, mythology and some European history.
Bottom left box: Ballet books and miscellaneous.
Bottom middle box: Factopedia type books.
Bottom right box: One large factopedia and then all my space books, including astronomy etc.
I love that bookshelf.
|Day 358: Car duck!|
Guess who gave him to me? Yep. Sis. He smells of vanilla :)
|Day 359: What happens when your dogs think you are, in fact, a trampoline.|
Self explanatory, really. That was on my leg. Happens often.
|Day 360: New music! (Is it really only 5 days left...?)|
I love this CD. And not only because Jensen Ackles sings on it. There are some really fantastic covers and I will admit to listening to it on repeat for at least 2 weeks every night.
|Day 361: Penultimate Pet Portrait, the first - Sam.|
We're in the home stretch here people! And what better way to end this project than with portraits of my furmily? This is Sam - my first born, so to speak. I love this photo.
|Day 362: Penultimate Pet Portrait, the second - Oliver.|
Oliver, my eldest boy, welcoming me home.
|Day 363: Penultimate Pet Portrait, the third - Shilo.|
Have you ever seen such a cute, snuggly thing? Shilo, my third furbaby.
|Day 364: Penultimate Pet Portrait, the fourth - Penny.|
And Penny, our final furmily member. Her ears often look like this. Except when I want to take a picture of them, funnily enough.
|Day 365: Aaaand That's All Folks!|
The perfect ending to what proved to be a hellavu lot of fun. Sure, there were days when I was stumped as to what to photograph, but I did it, and this is going to be so much fun to look at 50 years down the line.
Thanks to Amy for getting me started on this!
In case you're interested, my sister and I have started a photo-a-day project to document the first year of Tyler, my new nephew's, life. It's also on Facebook. I may start a blog about it, we'll see.
Thanks for coming with me on this journey!
