February 5: The directions on the package of a Vanillaroma air freshener say to unwrap the tree a little bit at a time, over several days -- thereby getting the most fragrance for your dollar.
I don't know anyone who does this.
We rip the plastic wrapper off, and for three days or so, every time we open the car door, we are blasted, full in the face, with a little cloud of Vanillaroma goodness.
February 6: These are parts of Emma's body -- because she has the cutest parts. If you look really close, you can see the cute little wart on her big right toe.
Black and White -- with a little something extra
February 7: Emma, being glamorous. Don't hate her because she's beautiful.
February 8: When the sky looks the same every day for weeks, you have to find some way to break up the monotony.
February 9: These are the bricks on the front of my house.
We didn't buy our house until we'd been married for fourteen years. We still have another thirty years to pay. It's less that 1,500 square feet. But it's our dream house.
We love our neighbors and the neighborhood. We love our flowers and our yard. We love the memories we've already made here, and the promise that the years to come hold. I'm so grateful to have a home to call our own.
Things I love
February 10: I love the stocking cap that may wife knitted for me. It's part old fashioned sledding cap, part "Ebenezer Scrooge" night cap.
The picture is a little blurry, because I was using the self timer and chasing the light -- and the only place I could take the picture was in the parking lot at work.
People were watching.
Things I hate
February 11: If I'd been thinking, I wouldn't have placed the "things I hate" at the end of my photographic week. Sorry about that.
I hate the check engine light.
It might as well be a dollar sign.
Or a sign that says "You're not really a man, because whatever is wrong with me is nothing that you'll know how to fix."
