12 of 12 – March

So last month I was only one day late, but today I’m actually posting my 12 of 12 on the 12th!  Wow!  (Don’t expect it to ever happen again.)

12 of 12 was created by Chad Darnell (you can find his website and a bunch of 12 of 12 links here), and has bloggers worldwide taking 12 photos throughout the day on the 12th day of each month.  

If you missed them, you can check out my 12 of 12 for previous months here!

It’s another weekend 12 today, and I spent pretty much all day with my daughter, so it’s a bit kid-heavy (in spite of the fact that she’s not really in any of them…sort of).  Here they are!

1. Reading the local paper this morning.  Poor Japan. 😦  Thoughts and prayers are with those who have lost in this tragedy.

2. By this time we’d already been up for about an hour.  I thought it was a bit too early for a Saturday, but the kid disagreed.  I didn’t notice that the picture was blurry when I took it.  I guess my eyes were still blurry too.

3. Breakfast – Balkan yogurt with pineapple.  Plus my handy dandy food scale that helps me carb count!  That was $40 well-spent!  (The scale, I mean.  The breakfast didn’t cost that much.)

4.  My daughter loves Dora.  This is a sleeping bag she got as a hand-me-down.  I’m not sure it’ll ever be used as a sleeping bag, but it’s definitely getting a lot of use as a blanket (see another photo closer to the end for an example) and as a mat for playing “Ring Around the Rosy” with Mom and Dad or with her dolls.  The other day she saw a picture of Strawberry Shortcake and said “Dora!!”  It made me feel old.

5. This is my purse in preparation for going to the grocery store.  It contains 2 diapers, bum wipes, anti-bac wipes, Cheerios in a non-spill snack cup, and my bloodsugar monitoring equipment.  What’s in your purse?

6.  Winnipeg experienced a blizzard last night.  Good thing we weren’t planning a BBQ for today.

7.  Some treats for me from the grocery store.  Chocolate and cheese – my two favourites!

8. I recently bought these yoga socks online.  They have rubber stickies on the bottom so as to be grippy.  That way I can take them along when I travel instead of bringing my mat!  They sure make my toes look stubby.

9. These are the gloves that go with the socks.  They would make me feel kind of tough if they weren’t make of wool and didn’t have little rubber bumps all over the palms.

10.  Taking the dog for a walk after the aforementioned blizzard.  Ugh.  It was a lot of trudging.

11.  Dora makes another appearance.  The kid is reading her book about 100 Words under the blanket.  Sorry the picture’s so blurry…this was Take 4 already.

12.  Yay for magnetic fridge letters!

That’s it!  Thanks for stopping by!

    Looks like you got a bad case of frostbite on your toes from trudging thru all that snow…

    Hey my snow buddy! 😛

    I love the cheese and chocolate — two of my faves too [let’s have THAT on our future 12th lunch date! :P]
    Those gloves and socks are HARDCORE!


  3. that was fun!!
    love your socks!!
    by the looks of it,
    i could fedex you some snow from here
    and it wouldn’t change things much over there…
    want some????


  4. fine, fine!!!
    can’t say i never offered you something…


  5. Mmm.. Chocolate and cheese… Crazy how you still have so much snow. How much longer?


  6. Still so much snow! Looks hard work, shovelling it and tromping through it to walk the dog or get anywhere… I like the socks and gloves though, and the idea of curling up on the sofa under a blanket or sleeping bag… very cosy!

    Sorry I’m so late commenting – not sure where the time went! My own 12 was up late, but close to the 12th. The comments are way late though!
