So Long February

How can such a short month be sooooo long? I am so happy to say so long.


This month I am joining both Kati's Photo-a-Day Challenge and Cheryl's Gathering the Moments. They are a mother and daughter duo and their memes complement each other very nicely.

1. Your View Today (February 2)
Directive: Smile with your eyes.
Too funny...

2. Words

3. Hands

4. A stranger or two

5.  10 a.m. Close enough!

6. Dinner (midday meal)

7. Button

8. Sky

9. Entrance

10. Self Portrait (Ran myself through the diffuser about five times to achieve this lovely plastic look.)

11. Something new


12 In My Cup

13. Something red

14. Something orange heart

15. Phone

16. Makes me smile

17. Time...clock, old stamp, 100 year-old map of my town

18. drink

19. tired old eyes
20. Handwriting

21. Pattern


22. Blue

23. Your Shoes A boot...can't find my shoes
24. Your bedside table No bedside table...a bedside bag

25. Get Out Green


26. Light


27. Something I ate

28. Sweet
The End.

p.s. I had to bend the rules a bit, but I hope that I might still get a passing grade. ☺

My prediction for March? 


More of same!

  1. I need to check out that meme and see it. It looks so interesting! I'm sort of glad to see February go this year. It started out just ducky but kind of ended up in a whirly swirly mess.

    BTW, I love that self portrait one. It really is beautiful of you!

  2. Vee-That is fabulous! What a fun thing to do. I love your "take" on things. So much fun! Do they do this every month? I love the idea. xo Diana

    1. Cheryl does her Gather the Moments on a monthly basis. Kati's photo challenges are now and then...I think. Perhaps she'll tell us!

  3. I enjoyed these very much, Vee! I like them all, but I think days, 26, 27, and 28 are my favorites -- oh, and Day 1. :) Love your self-portrait. We're almost caught up on Downton Abbey here. We missed for a few weeks because of course, we had to watch the Olympics. I hope you and John have a wonderful weekend!

    Hugs,

    Denise at Forest Manor

  4. Smiling with eyes and Lambchop reading a bedtime story were my faves for emotional reactions...time and light for beautifully portrayed concepts! You ARE a wonder, Vee! Smiles! Keep on clicking!

  5. I thoroughly enjoyed this! And that view out of your french doors and windows is just breath taking! LOVE IT! Enjoy your week-end!

  6. Well donee! You rose to two challenges. My favorite is the first picture. Your grands are so handsome and I love how they are trying to smile with their eyes! What fun you must have with them!

  7. LAMBCHOP!!! So nice to see you again!!! --loved this post Vee!!! Thanks for making me smile..yep..I do believe March will be just like Feb. Blessings

  8. if it'd been my choice, I would have kicked February to the curb 26 days ago. at least today, the final day, is sunny and I'm hanging clothes on the line...hope it gets above freezing!

  9. Thanks for joining in, Vee! Oh, you did such a great job with this challenge! I found that I broadened my horizons by looking for photo possibilities that were out of my "norm."

    I smiled a lot as I scrolled through your photos, both at your pics and at your words. I loved the handwriting on Day 20. That could have been your entry for Day 28 too. But Day 28 is perfect...doubly sweet! I liked your boots shot. Love your selfie...love Day 22...love Day 26 (another double)...

    Kati says that she'll be doing another photo challenge this summer. It'll be fun!

  10. Love this compilation. February was wonderful at your house, in spite of the snow! Or for some, because of it! xo

  14. Where is that diffuser?!

    I need to check out the photo challenge. That just might be the motivation I need.

    ReplyDelete
  15. What a fun challenge! You did it so well and made me smile at your take on things! Loved them all and especially your self portrait! I'd for sure give you an A+!!

    ReplyDelete
  16. What a fun post and I will have to get the link for that photo challenge. That would be fun to try to do a photo a day. Thanks for sharing and I hope you have a great week end! MARCH is in sight!!

    ReplyDelete
  17. How fun! You have a wonderful assortment of photos here. It was fun to see Lamb Chop again and the boys are so cute with their smiling eyes.

  20. This was a great post! Loved seeing a picture a day. Let's hope March comes in like a lion, so it will go out like a lamb.

    ReplyDelete
  21. Definitely an A+! Love your grands smiling with their eyes. John's handwriting - pure sweetness. February is leaving sweetly from here with the sun shining. I'll wave some of it in your direction.

  22. First thing I did was call the number on the old phone...thinking I might just have a wee chat with you. But the voice on the other end told me that number was no longer in service. Awww! A fun post for the end of the month...and so many things I could comment on. About the missing shoes...you might want to check in the closet under John's work clothes. :) Great pic's...and commentary to go with them. I'm smiling.

  23. Vee,

    This is just wonderful and a very fitting end to a long cold month..
    Love, Mona

  24. No,no,no!!! I hope your prediction for March does not come true! Though I know it may.
    Love your photos. The one for 'blue" is brilliant. And your grandsons are wonderful! (But you know that!)

  25. I love this, little peeks into your daily life:>) Sounds like a fun meme.

    ReplyDelete
  26. What a fun post, Vee! I too found your living room warm and inviting. I like the orange peel hearts, the cupcake and the sweetheart holding it, and your Valentine from John. How sweet! Welcoming in March like a lion....so it should go out like a lamb. :)

    ReplyDelete
  27. Oh I just loved this post Vee! That is a really fun meme and task to take a photo each day with a theme. Some made me smile and some made me want to eat. :) Is this something they do every month? Will you do it again? Have a cozy weekend. It's going to be cold and snowy.

    ReplyDelete
  28. Oh that was so nice. I loved seeing all the pictures. Lamb Chop made me smile too. : )
    What a nice card John gave you.

    ReplyDelete
  29. When I saw the sock puppet, I smiled too. It reminds me of Lambchop. That was such a cute show. Thanks for sharing your fun take on life. ~:)

  33. Hello Vee. I think you made the grade! I am inspired for this challenge you have taken on! I have been glad for Blogging this winter, as it truly has helped the winter blues.
    I am now watch session three of Downton Abby, this has been so much fun; glad you inspired me to watch!
    Blessings to you !!! xo Roxy

  34. Well, this was fun to read. I can see it took awhile to get these photos all together...and know you had fun doing it.
    Great photos!

    ReplyDelete
  35. You get an A+ from me, this was so precious, and priceless, need i say more other than thank you for sharing your warm cozy home and life.
    I am hoping to find the time to join Gathering moments!
    Hugs,
    Sue

    ReplyDelete
  37. Wow! You amaze me. I liked the cup of tea...and your grands:)

    ReplyDelete
  38. Had to smile at the clock reading 11:30-close enough!
    And that crocheted afghan over the back of your couch caught my eye too.
    I really enjoyed your month in photos, Vee.
    I have been thinking for some time now that your oldest g'son has your eyes.
    Seeing your latest self portrait makes me believe I'm right.

    1. He has his mama's blue eyes. Mine are brown. He may have my hair, though, as I'm the only one with brown hair. All other grandparents have or had light hair and both parents have light hair.

  41. All wonderful photos, Vee. It looks like a photo diary. I just joined Instagram, and it's similar to this as almost everyone posts a few photos a day. My favorite of your photos? Your charming grandsons and the beautiful Valentine's card that John gave to you! :)

    1. Yes, I think that is what Cheryl means it to be with her "Gather the Moments" month-ending party—a way to go to one post and get an overview of the month past. You could join us! ☺

  42. You are just too, too funny, Vee! Love the short and sweet commentary. I have yet to master that skill (obviously!) I chuckled the whole way through. And I noticed those really sweet napkins and rings, too. I wonder where I could get some of those. HAHA

    ReplyDelete
  43. Love your pictures, Vee! You've had a busy month and are so creative.
    My favorite was the "sweet" picture. ;) I hope your prediction for March proves untrue.

  44. This is a wonderful way to remember the month, Vee!

  45. Hi Vee..I think you met the challenge with vim and vigor! :) After reading your post and about headers, I realize even more how "in over my head" I am. I have have to to several sites and tried to learn to make my own header and failed miserably. Maybe it's old age but I have trouble keeping up. My header stays the same until I pay someone to change it. It's run into some money, so now it stays the same.
    I enjoyed your post very much. I hope the BIG snow storms are over.
