Day 10: Self Portrait
I spent a large amount of time trying to take a self portrait of my face, or my ear, or my upper body with my phone and spent most of the time laughing at the results, some were so blurry I wasn't sure what I shot. I wish I would have saved instead of instantly deleting them because I could have posted them and all of you could have had a good laugh! I ended up with this shot.
I got those Merrill shoes at the thrift store a while ago and I love them.
I was trying to get self portrait of my upper body because I got the results of Monday's mammogram back on Friday and it was negative. I'm good for another year! Tonight I'm going to a fundraiser dinner for one of my friends who has breast cancer. She's young and thankfully got a mammogram simply because her nipples were hurting. They found not only breast cancer, but a few days later found it in her bones too. It's been hard to swallow that a 40 year old vibrant, active woman with two young boys could be riddled with cancer.
Please, please, please if you are due, go get your mammogram!
Day 11: Makes You Happy
Last night, when I should have been in bed, I decided to watch the Pearl Jam 20 Movie (for the 50th 4th time). What?! It's been a couple months since I watched it! My phone was on the charger next to me and I knew that today's theme was something about what makes me happy, and this band certainly qualifies as making me happy. It was after 11:00 (close enough to being Feb 11) and the movie was almost over so I started snapping pictures of the TV with my phone. As with the self portrait I took a bunch of really bad shots and even the shot I chose to use is not that good, but it would be hard for me to think of anything that brings me more joy than listening to and/or watching Pearl Jam perform.
Have a great Saturday and remember... Write yourself a note to make an appointment for a mammogram first thing Monday! Please!
