A bunch of Favorites

365 | 21 aug 2011 | Fruit

It’s hardly a secret that my Favorite Fruit is of the lime kind.

I just love the green color and how it makes my cooking taste so much better. I should use it again soon, been having bad cooking habits lately, not much home cooked meals these days.

I spent last month snapping a bunch of Favorites. I had so much fun following Katrina’s August prompts. You can find the new list for September here and come join us for some sharing and talking in the gallery and forum at her site Capture Your 365. Love the people there – and the photos uploaded are just gorgeous! Lots of inspiration for the next (365) photo – don’t we all need that from time to time?

Anyway, back to business. My Favorites. I shared a few here, here and here.
And now I want to share some more:

365 | 28 aug 2011 | Smile

I love my kid’s smile – that is my Favorite Smile for sure. I have a lot of pictures of it too (together with a lot of other photos of his face and all his expressions), here he’s showing off all his brand new big boy teeth as well.

Keep smiling kiddo. I love you!

365 | 25 aug 2011 | Smaller Thing

MT has a thing for small things, he loves to pick up beetles, grasshopper and such (but is quite afraid of spiders).

This little guy was my Favorite Smaller Thing of the month.

365 | 17 aug 2011 | Tech

My phone is really worn from all it’s use. Sometimes it’s sticky from my kid borrowing it, sometimes it doesn’t function as well as I wish – but I could not go with another type of phone after this. I just love the way it works (or at least should work) – and that I can do so much more than talk or send SMS.

My Favorite Piece of Technology is for sure my (sadly outdated) iPhone.

365 | 22 aug 2011 | Kitchen Item

I bought these in South Africa 13 years ago. I love them and they usually go with the bowl of salad when I have company. I haven’t used them for a while, so it seems like I need to invite someone soon – and serve something green 😀

A Favorite Kitchen Item of mine.

365 | 24 aug 2011 | Hobby

I’ve been taking photos in one way or another for the last 30 years. I love it and it has such a big impact on my life. I’m so glad to see how MT is picking up the camera as well and starting to get a few decent images out of it as well.

Taking photos is my Favorite Hobby, but certainly not the only one!

365 | 23 aug 2011 | View

I love the view from the farm I grow up on. I love that the farm is up on a little hill and that it faces straight south. Makes it open for every kind of weather, but the view is spectacular 🙂

My favorite view for sure!

365 | 29 aug 2011 | Activity

MT has been really into football (soccer) lately and was so happy when the season started up again a couple of weeks ago.

It’s been his Favorite Activity for a while now, at least until the snow arrives, and I love going with him and cheering him on.

365 | 31 aug 2011 | Beverage

I’m not drinking as much coffee as before, but I have to say that it is my Favorite Beverage.

You can find the full 365 set here.

Thanks for looking. Please share what your favorite things are in the comments. I’d love to know.

Happy weekend everyone!!

3 Favorites

365 | 12 aug 2011 | walk

I’m still working on Katrina’s list of Favorite Things for my project 365 this month. I’m not all caught up with posting them to my 365 |2011 Flickr set, but I hope to get there by the end of the week, so here is another 3 photos. Getting back to work this past two weeks have been seriously busy!

The photo at the top of this post is from August 12th:

I love walking down by the river.

I especially love it when the sun are shining and making everything glowing, like it was today 😀 You can’t see the river in this photo, but it is right off the right edge of the photo. I could hear it load and clear when I captured this. I love the sound of the river.

This is my Favorite place to Walk by, all summer long.

365 | 13 aug 2011 | clothing

This stripy top has been a favorite of mine for a long time. Sadly it’s getting old and have a few small holes in it so I can’t use it as often as before, but I love to put it on at home and when I go for a walk down by the river.

It’s one of my Favorite article of Clothing. I sure hope to find something similar soon. It’s just so comfy to wear 😀

And this one from August 14th:

365 | 14 aug 2011 | spot to sit

I love to sit here on my stairs to drink a cup of coffee in the sunshine. As summer is coming to an end I try to do it as often as possible, to soak up the summer feeling (so please no more rain!).

My scrubby concrete steps are my Favorite Spot To Sit .

A Few More Favorite Things

365 | 10 aug 2011 | game

I’m still working on Katrina’s list of Favorite Things for my project 365 this month. I’m not all caught up with posting them to my 365 |2011 Flickr set, but I hope to get there by the end of the week. Getting back to work this past two weeks have been seriously busy!

This photo is from August 9th:

365 | 9 aug 2011 | toy

MT have loved playing with these wooden sticks even since he got them 6 years ago. Back then he had fun just filling (and emptying) his truck with them. Now he builds amazing structures with them and can spend hours after hours playing.

For sure a Favorite Child’s Toy in our house.

The photo at the top of this post is from August 10th:

For a period this summer MT asked me to play UNO with him more or less every day.
Our stack of cards are well used and every time I play it I’m reminded of all the times I played it as kid. Good Times. For sure our Favorite Game right now.

And this one from August 11th:

365 | 11 aug 2011 | place outdoors

In the afternoon the sun finds it’s way to our veranda on the northern side of the house, it’s a wonderful place to be – to regroup from a busy day and to soak up on the last bit of sunshine for the day.

Right now this is a Favorite Place right Outside my door. If only there would be more sunny days like this, I would use it even more. It could use a new lick of paint, though. Maybe next year?

So what are you doing with your photos this month?
