friday confessions happiness


(happiness) my new chucks
in the engine room of a brand new PSV
(confession) one of three new pairs of shoes i bought this week.
happy husband doesn't read my blog.


(happiness) a brand new engine room
(confession) it made me miss all the great engineers
from my old job. they were so cool.


(happiness) the view from up here.
(confession) i'm not that fond of heights.


(happiness) noticing a heart shape in this bit of a ship
(confession) i let everyone think i was just taking pictures of the ropes.


(happiness) mirror self-portraits
(happiness 2) my hair's getting long
(confession) this isn't that great a picture but it's the best one i got.
i was in a hurry.

(happiness)--on monday SFgirlbybay used my most famous flickr moo pic in her post on inspiration boards. thanks SF girl! :-) (confession) hers is one of those blogs that i feel unworthy of, so it's especially validating fun. i knew someone had to have used it somewhere because hits on that pic suddenly went up dramatically. i've been woefully neglecting flickr of late. i guess because i'm all about twitter at the moment. oh yeah, and i've been working like a madwoman of late. (confession 2) i don't have that pic on this 'puter, so you gotta go look at it on flickr.

(happiness and confession) i'm happy to be headed home today.

Thanks for your help last night, enjoy your homecoming!

AHA now I know how I 'found' you...those moo cards. I completely copied you and have some twee but sweet, tiny little wooden pegs with a red heart on them for my Moo cards.

Ooof, it's been bugging me, I like everyone to be in their 'box' you know?

Gorgeous shoes! Ships too, bonus points...

Ady said...

Cool shoes. I loved the heart in the ropes the best though! I also loved you moo cards, but I had to google moo cards to find out what they are. :)

Bee said...

Lots of interesting views here. Who else would be able to show us an engine room and some chucks in the same post?

Extranjera said...

Heart the heart.

Why am I all fokken inane of late?

VW is expon. Google seems to always know its me, trying to comment without using the words: love, like, or cool.

Tough shit, man.

Cyndy said...

@Extranjera: Julochka really does test our vocabulary, no? How many times/how many ways can we tell her we adore her--and her stuff?!?
