Celebrating Women for the Real World



Stuff Portrait Friday!


Auschwitz…The lovely Kristine over at Random & Odd has challenged us again. Our assignment this week is to take pictures of:

1. Your suitcase/s or travel bag.
2. Your ground.
3. Something you are powerless to.

YOUR SUITCASE
The only thing exciting about my suitcase is the fact that I will be using it to go and see the Dallas B*tches for the next Blogger Blowout this fall.
YOUR GROUND
Hmmmmmm…well I thought that I could just go outside and take a quick picture but it is late Thursday night, G2 is out on a date and I’m just waiting for him to get home. With my luck, I would be outside (in my pj’s) on the ground taking the picture and he would drive up. “No son, your mother is not insane….really!” So this is my ground, inside…and yes we haven’t finished the baseboards yet.
SOMETHING I AM POWERLESS TO…
OK…forget the bad driving practice here. Yes, I was driving and saw this dust devil on the way home from one of my schools (uh this time next year this area is ear marked for 20,000 new homes); I quickly pulled out the camera and took a picture. I won’t even tell you how fast I was driving. As we all know, we are powerless against Nature.

Did you play?

    LOL so funny you were worried that your son would think you were insane! When my family see’s me photographing weird stuff for SPF they know I’m insane.

    You look like you just came back from traveling or why would your suitcase be in your living room?
    Aw, you took it out just to show us? You’re so nice and energetic! I would never go to that much trouble for an SPF! Actually I don’t even go to that much trouble when I do travel. I get the hubs to get it out. Downstairs … messy … creeps me out.

    Great interpretation of the powerlessness we have with nature. Thanks for reminding me, ya freak! Oh and remind me to stay off the roads when your taking pictures. LMAO

    Pretty floors! We don’t have our baseboards up either and I’m not even going to tell you how long it’s been since we’ve had the new floor!

    Dust Devils…they look a bit scarey.

    I played.

    Awesome SPF! The dust devil is kinda cool looking to someone who has never seen one. Now I can say I’ve seen a water spicket (same thing but over the ocean) and a dust devil!! I played.

    It rains too much to get dust devils around here, especially lately- so I find that pic particularly cool!

    Happy SPF and I played (late) too.

    Wow, undeveloped land???? What a commodity!!!

    I think I’m going to miss the Dallas blowout as my son’s 2nd birthday will be 10/21/06 – we’re probably partying that weekend, much to my dismay – AGAIN. I missed Austin because of that weather, and now this!

    There will just have to be a third!
