The Selfie Project – May to July
This will be the last post on our year long selfie project. We are closing in on the end of the year. Two more months to go and it is a wonderful time of year. The weather is improving, the days are getting warmer and Susan’s garden is getting ready. I have found it interesting to go back over the images to this point and watch the seasons change through the months. When you are living it it does not seem so dramatic. But seeing time compressed here I can see things I normally don’t. I’m not sure that makes sense!
18 May 2021 – I have decided to write a book! Well, just a little book. I am going to write about Susan’s town in Italy, Arezzo. This is an early draft of my manuscript all marked up with additions and revisions. It is going to be apicture book. I have so many pictures and no one can see them because they are all on my computer. So, I am going to make a book out of a few of them. Maybe this will be the first of many. Maybe!
22 May 2021 – At my desk working on my book.
23 May 2021 – Susan wanted me to sand down her cutting boards and re-oil them. It was a good idea and they look much better now.
26 May 2021 – I don’t garden much but this year I want sunflowers. Susan is not enthusiastic so I am going to do it myself.
27 May 2021 – I love this yard. We have enough room that staying home during Covid 19 has not been too much of a sacrifice.
1 June 2021 – Yes, those are flowers in the background. It has begun! It won’t be long and this place will be overflowing with beauty.
8 June 2021 – I am planting my sunflower seedlings in the front garden.
9 June 2021 – John and I are out for a walk with the girls. Great smile John!!!
10 June 2021 – The garden is beautiful but it is a lot of work for Susan. Watering takes her time and it is something I can help with.
14 June 2021 – The garden is looking good!
17 June 2021 – This is a wonderful time of year. The weather is wonderful and everything is growing
15 June 2021 – On a walk around Burnaby Lake.
18 June 2021 – The tomatoes are coming along just fine!
20 June 2021 – I am standing in the beans and they grow inches every day. On the right the flowers are climbing to find the sun. What a wonderful place!
22 June 2021 – Today is a sad day because we are going to the funeral of our friend Vito. I hate funerals and I hate losing friends even more.
25 June 2021 – This past week I bought a cookie cookbook at the Sally Ann and this is my first batch following it. Hmmm…peanut butter cookies!
26 June 2021 – This is what the camera sees when I am taking a selfie. But if this is a selfie, who took this picture and what camera took it?
28 June 2021 – Hey, today was hot. Really hot! That is 40 degrees C on the thermometer And it felt like it. We didn’t do much today!!!
2 July 2021 – Look at the box of garlic that Susan grew! The woman is truly amazing! She can grow anything!
3 July 2021 – This patio is where we live in the summer time when the weather is warm. Sunshine, grapes and flowers make a fine room!
5 July 2021 – In the background are Susan’s hanging flower baskets which have been wonderful this year.
6 July 2021 – The facia boards on the front decks need painting. I scraped them first and now for fresh white paint.
8 July 2021 – Susan’s favorite grage chair needed a coat of white paint. I had leftover paint from the front decks.
9 July 2021 – I planted these on the 8th of June. And now look at them! Check out the photo above for the 8th of June!
13 July 2021 – Coffee on the patio in the morning. Seems this is where I came in.
And that is the year in pictures! We began last year on the 14th of July and so we end here, on the 13th of July, for a total of 365 pictures! It was actually a challenge getting the camera out every day. Actually, many of the pictures are true “selfies” made with my cell phone and most are actually with a camera, radio trigger and tripod. And all re of me which I am sure has been a chore for those who followed my project. I am not the most photogenic subject in the world.
But it has been fun and I will miss it. However, I will start a new project soon. Probably I will start at the beginning of September. But you will have to wait for that. No peeking!
The Selfie Project has been broken into Posts covering only two months of the year. Because I began the Project in the middle of July the posts are from the middle of the month to the middle of the month. This post is for 15 May thru 13th of July.
