Notes from My Weekend





Friday: I've decided that I want to abandon the blogging format I've fallen into. I want to return to my blogging roots; really put my heart back into my photos, and ditch the too structured routine. It's a freeing feeling. I hope you'll stick around for it. Other than that, it's been quite a busy day. Chores were completed and WIPs were progressed. It's been a full week without Izzy now, and it feels like it's been even longer. I don't know why that is. We got her ashes back a couple days ago, and it's hard not to stare at the little wooden box and feel broken. The dogs are obviously feeling her absence as well. Everyone is still mourning over here.





Saturday: I feel a bit more like myself with my camera constantly out. I really fell into a rut, didn't I? Mom and I ran our weekend errands together, extremely early in the morning might I add, and I proved just how much I love a good deal. I picked up some more Cortizone because my life (read: problematic skin) depends on it, a neat geometric candle holder that was 70% off, and a used copy of Marie Antoinette for under two bucks. I don't mind that it's used. Sophia Coppola's Marie Antoinette is one of my all time favorite films, and now I can watch it even more than I usually do. I never buy DVDs, that's how serious I am about that movie.

Anyway, photos were taken and paintings were painted. I took a long nap, watched Almost Famous, and called it a night much earlier than usual.






Sunday: I woke up early in the morning, and ended up falling asleep again a few hours later. I suppose that Sundays should be spent sleeping anyway. My mother and I sorted through a box of old things that my grandmother wanted to get rid of. There were quite a few interesting items, including a feminism based issue of LIFE magazine from 1970, a calendar from 1954, some of my grandfather's schoolwork from '64, and a ton of books, magazines, and newspaper articles about the Kennedy's. I fell asleep again, and then laughed at my dogs a lot. It was a decent Sunday.

How was your weekend?

  1. Lovely pictures. Sometimes it's good to have a change and go back to your roots.

  2. I love Sofia Coppola's Marie Antoinette too. Hahah it's just a fun vibe to it? Which is terrible since it's kind of an anxious tone in the movie (kind of like watching Titanic). But love all the gorgeous costumes (ofc) and wouldn't mind going back and try that life for some days haha!

    Have a lovely week Amber, Xx

    1. That's a shame! Mine keeps getting rid of her old things, so my mother and I take what we can!

  4. Oh, I am so, so, so, sorry for your loss. I can't imagine the kind of gaping hole such a loss would leave. My little fur baby turns 11 this year and I can't tell you how anxious I get over that. She's happy and healthy but I still can't stop myself from thinking the worst. I don't know what I'd do without her, honestly.

    1. Thank you for your kind words Sonia. I understand completely. My other two are 13 and 14, and they give me anxiety on a weekly basis. All we can do is love our pets and treat them the best we can.
