Just Keepin’ It Real

Just keeping it real today. I have no photographer. It’s cold out. Whaa Whaa Whaa. So, I’m shooting indoors with the tripod and timer. And all the puppies. This is Muggles the Puggle. He wants to know Where is The Treat Surely There’s a Treat Why Are You Holding Out on My Treat. Caleb is staring off into space in the background. I’m sure Gracie is somewhere MacGuyvering a way to ACTUALLY get the treats.

Ah. There she is. She hasn’t found the treats. Aunt Bettye is Very Good at Hiding the Treats.

I’m dressed for some light erranding, mud-and-poop cleanup in the yard and some photo editing. Maybe a nap. But I’ll change for a nap. If I’m going to nap, I go all in. None of this fully-dressed dozing off on the sofa nonsense. I’ll change back into my nightgown and get in bed. I don’t treat myself to naps very often as they throw off my already precarious night-time sleep, but when I do, I take it very seriously.

I did not “blog-ize” the apartment before shooting. Is that because a) I like to keep it real, b) I didn’t realize how messy it was til I saw the pictures, or c) I’m lazy? You believe what you like. Yes, my Christmas tree is still up. I think Monday it will come down. Sadface. It’s the least wonderful time of the year.

Janey likes to sit on the arm of the desk chair when I’m at the computer and bump me incessantly with her head or TAP TAP TAP me with her paw.

What do you wear when you’re just hanging around your house? I’m a “get out of day clothes as quickly as possible and into my nightgown” person. Wig, bra, shoes all off ASAP. I did my time. If I’m at home I want to be comfortable. Even “comfortable clothes” are not as comfortable as no clothes.

I know what you’re thinking. This was The Lamest Blogpost Ever. Ha. So I learned a new trick to share with you.

It’s still lame. But now there’s a GIF. And if you, like so many, are confused about how to pronounce that – here’s some useless information. The creator of the GIF, or Graphics Interface Format, says it’s pronounced JIF, like the peanut butter. The rest of the internet/world says he (the creator) is wrong and it’s pronounced with a hard G like in the word Graphics that it comes from. You say it how you like. I won’t judge.

  1. I’m sure with you on the clothes at home. As soon as I come in the door I’m changing. Great post btw.

    I love the little white bookcase in your living room AND the cute little vintage lamp. It looks like McCoy from a distance and my daughter collects McCoy – I may have to look for one.

    1. That’s my favorite little corner, too! It’s hard when you get one spot Just Right, to replicate it.

      The lamp may be McCoy, it’s certainly of the “aqua pottery made in America in the 40-60s” category. And my father made that simple white bookcase when my sister was a teen in the 50s and I’ve had it all my life.

      Can’t wait to get home this afternoon and GET OUT OF THESE CLOTHES! Ha 🙂

      1. This is a live tree. Correction, this WAS a live tree 😦 It’s getting a little droopy and soon there will be needles everywhere. Plus, I don’t truly have the space for it to be up all year round, I’ve got a lot of stuff smooshed into the bedroom that doesn’t belong in there. So while it would be lovely, I really can’t 😦 I just need to find another lighting source 🙂

    1. Ohh, so sorry you’re sick, Jodie! Hopefully it passes soon. I love “keeping it real” cuz it’s EASY! Ha.

      I do love my kids (and my land-kids!) and they definitely seem to like getting in the shots. Last night I was filming an OOTD in the mirror, and Caleb stepped up beside me, staring into the mirror, ears perked, like ME TOO ME TOO I’M IN THE VIDEO TOO. It was very cute.
