Getting ready for Isabella (progress on the nursery)

Posted on

We have been working on redoing the nursery since Thanksgiving. Today we made a big step. We finished the painting and added the light and switch. Granted, we are still a bit ready for the room to be ready, but at least now Susanna can start decorating it for real (instead of just in her mind). Another bonus is being able to get the furniture stored in the hallway and our bedroom out.

It is nice to get a project finished. Not that it is totally finished, but the part that I was responsible for is done – Susanna had been waiting on me to finish so she could start to decorate. One less project on my list to carry over to the new year.

Christmas Morning Fog!

The boys are with their mom this Christmas. Susanna and I are enjoying a quiet Christmas morning and will go to my uncle’s house for dinner this afternoon and I plan to work on the nursery a little bit later this morning – it is time to get the last two pieces of trim in and install the light.

The warm rainy weather yesterday turned into fog overnight and a beagle that refused to go out and go pee before bed last night got me up at sunrise to enjoy the early morning fog.

A selfie made of selfies

Will likes to grab Susanna’s or my iPhone when we leave it around and take oodles of selfies. Instead of deleting them, I made a photomosaic of his pictures using Metapixel. It is a selfie made of selfies. The image is made up from the 168 selfies I found on the two phones.  I set up the background image to bleed through 30% to make the picture turn out decent – I think the majority of the pictures came from two selfie sessions and didn’t have a lot of variation in color for the program to work with.

My next thought is to take a family picture at the end of the year and make a photomosaic using all the pictures we took throughout the year.
