Sights: Pictures of the Day-to-Day

Friday, January 13, 2012

If I had an iPhone, I'd use Instagram to save and share the pictures I took with it, but since I opted for Android, I use an analogous program that I actually like quite a bit. It's called Lightbox; this link will take you to my profile there, should you care to see it. And here are some recent pictures from my Lightbox, and therefore, some recent sights from my life.

October 26, 2011 (okay, these first few aren't exactly recent)
This was taken going over the 520 bridge between Bellevue and Seattle, which is a bridge floating right on the water of Lake Washington. It's pretty cool; it actually took my breath away the first several times I drove on it. The bridge tends to create a divide between the water, with the lake on one side being choppy and kind of fierce while the lake on the other side is very calm. Which side is which is ever-changing, and I have no idea what's causing that situation, but it's pretty cool to observe. Anyway, the state just turned the bridge into a toll road, so gone are the days of driving on it and having my breath taken away.

Taken from my seat on the 105 bus, the first of three buses that I take to get to work.

A sticker on the side of a newspaper box in Seattle. I agree with the sentiment, a lot. And I also think the woman in the drawing looks a lot like a co-worker of mine named Jolene, which is funny and fitting, since I can totally imagine her going to a rally with a sign like this.

This was the day that I cut my own bangs. They're a little shorter than this now, but I've learned how to make them look "right" and I truly love having them. I feel like I should have had bangs this whole time (meaning "my whole life").

Part of a series I call "Walter Sitting In Things or On Things." In this piece, he's sitting in a red bag that previously held my mom's Christmas present to me (which was a purple KitchenAid mixer, by the way -- score!). He really likes sitting in or on things that contain him in some way. Whatever that's about.

January 4, 2012
My rainiest day in Seattle thus far.

January 5, 2012
I strung up the lights from our Christmas tree above the bed. They make me really, really happy.

Walter getting belly-rubbed, big time.

Fun with toenail polish (those are my feet, yes), and an addition to the aforementioned series where Walter sits on things (maybe while he considers having some toenail polish fun of his own?).

January 12, 2012
And again. This time, Walter is sitting on a precarious piece of cardboard.

All of these socks are missing their partners.

I made this pizza and it would have been REALLY good if I'd chosen to use different dough or if I'd made the dough better somehow. Anyway, you should try it: any bread dough you want (homemade, store-bought, etc.), topped with havarti cheese, cheddar cheese, chunks of chicken, red and yellow peppers, spinach leaves, and garlic salt. No sauce. Add any other toppings you want and just do all of it according to your personal tastes.

I bought this beautiful vintage necklace today (part of my last purchase for two and a half months!). I conferred with my friend Amy, and we think it's made from moonstones and mother-of-pearl.

The Seattle Washington Temple (this was my first visit) and a really great sculpture that I enjoyed on the temple grounds.


  1. The floating bridge looks cool but it always terrified me to drive on it.

    Don't you love King County Metro? I can't imagine a THREE bus commute. Yikes.

    LOVE the toenail polish.

    Mateless socks are the worst.

    This is my favorite pizza crust recipe:
    Only I substitute bread flour for all-purpose and bake at 500 degrees for 12 minutes. Pizza Perfection.

    I never saw the Seattle temple, and now I know why. It's actually in Bellevue. The sculpture seems very similar to one in Temple Square.

  2. Cute kitty and cute toes! :-)
