Jumping Into January With Both Feet

Jumping in with both feet
and hoping my butt will follow.

First, I must tell you some sad news.
I cannot find my camera.
I know I had it when I drove to
Illinois with my son
I have not seen it since.

All of you that are cheering
because of looking at my
feeble attempts at
can just hush your mouths now.

take some pictures of
January things around here..
but I surfed the web a bit,
found Pinterest and... you go.

Here is a day in my
Imaginary Life.
Can I get an Amen to
Sometimes all we have to do
is believe in ourselves...
even if others are consumed with
I do believe that I CAN!

Morning will find me on my way
to Starbucks.
This is a scene that is common in
our neck of the woods this time of year.
After a drive through
Winter Wonderland,
sipping my hot coffee,
I would come home to this
Sweet Tree
holding court on my sun porch.
Walking into my kitchen
I would find these happy
little faces smiling at me.
And, instead of making  bows
for the girls' hair
I might be tempted to make
a sweet little skirt...
or two...or three....
Won't be making one in my size,
because I already am
HIPPY enough.

And, while I'm dreaming I spot
a picture of
January Jones which
I will share with MyHero.
As you can see~
THAT proved to be a big mistake
cuz look at what happened to the
COOKIE he was holding.
Who knew??

Back with some REAL pictures tomorrow..
I hope....
Camera?  Camera?  Camera?
Did anyone find my camera?
your photo name

You are so funny. I love the winter scene. Just as long as its at your house is fine with me. I can enjoy it at a distance.
Its turned colder here and I am not getting out at all. Should warm up in the 40s again on Thursday.
Still having tummy troubles and I have had about 3 hours sleep tonight.

Miss Kitty said...

In my imaginary day, I would have a figure like January Jones. Yikes! I hope you find your camera. Thanks for sharing those great photos!

Karen said...

LOL.. love that cookie~~~....

Jettie said...

I have misplaced my cell charger so I feel your pain.

Kathy @ Creative Home Expressions said...

It's too bad cameras aren't like cell phones and you could call it to see where it is, Diana! I hope you find it soon although I enjoyed your pictures. Those snowman ornaments are just adorable!

ain't for city gals said...

you are funny..Happy New Year...wanted to say thank you for ALL the kind comments about my dad..they meant the world to me!

Anita Diaz said...

Happy New Year to you!! I sure hope you find your camera!! Thanks so much for stopping by:-)

Gina said...

You are too funny! Camera or not, you know how to make the best of it and still put together a great post.

Susie said...

Diana, What makes me mad is..I once was January Jones, now I am Jan/Feb. Jones. :):) You better find that camera !!! Did you call your son? We need pictures of your life. :) I sure hope you are keeping warm. It's bitter cold here. xo, Susie(She Junks)

So-o-o Funny!!

Mark said...

You know that January Jones is majorly hot when she totally does it for me too. That's saying something!
Happy New Year Nana!

Gert said...

What a fun post! I saw you over on Susan Branch's blog! Hope you find your camera soon!

Blessings & Happy New Year!

Patty said...

Too funny! But - I was happy to see that even high fashion models sometimes have wardrobe malfunctions. January's top is a bit crooked and the point that belongs above the left breast has slipped somewhere. It happens all the time to brides I am shooting and if painlessly try to fit it in photoshop, but if January can have a crooked top, is should be okay to leave it - right?
And I do hope you find your camera. Or - have an opportunity to get another one. Really - you should have a back up anyway. Memories are too precious to leave to chance and an electronic device can fail at a moments notice. Two cameras are really a modern day necessity.

This was sure good for an early morning laugh.
That little skirt with the cowboy boots-I can only imagine that little gal line dancing in that get up.
And the melting husband-yea, I get it!
I do hope you find your camera. I have to compliment you on your calmness about the whole ordeal. Me, I'd be frantic!!

Debi WeeFaerie said...

lol! Your post is hilarious as always! I hope you find your camera soon! If I lost mine I would not nearly be as good humored as you.

Marty@A Stroll Thru Life said...

I never pay much for a camera as I am known to lose them. Sure hope yours surfaces, but I did enjoy your daydream!

Blondie's Journal said...

Oh...that cookie had me laughing. I would have loved to have made some of those for Christmas. And yes, we have a bit of the white stuff but it is blowing more than settling.

I hope you find your camera...I would be lost without mine.


Nellie said...

I'm so glad I "found" your blog! Such good reading, Diana! I hope your camera will magically appear! Have a good Monday!

Cindy Adkins said...

OH MY GOSH, you crack me up!!! I wasn't as skinny as that woman on the day I was born! lol She's beautiful, for sure! (Do I hate her just a little bit? lol) I love that little girl's skirt with the boots---I can see Sweet Cheeks is gonna have a new outfit soon! Happy Awesome New Year!!!

Donna said...

I must tell you, Diana, I'll put in a few bucks for a new camera, as it will keep me from ruining my keyboard, monitor and laptop! I almost spit my tea all over the desk! Instead - I swallowed quickly and almost choked I was laughing so hard!

I hope you find your camera. I know how lost I was when I dropped and broke mine a couple of months ago. While your story is hilarious, losing your camera is a crying shame!


Daniella said...

You always crack me up Diana!!
I love the "day in the life" that you have showed!! I WISH that was my life with you!!

Blessed Serendipity said...

I hope you find your camera. If somebody loses something in this house, we go around clapping randomly. If we had a clapper attached to the lost item we would of found it, but sadly there are no clappers to be found here. Remember the clapper?


Jane, Naples, Florida said...

Clever, clever, clever is all I can say! Who needs a camera with an imagination like yours?

You are something else! I always leave here chuckling! (sort of like spewing iced tea all over my keyboard!) Oh, I hope you find your camera, but really, no need! Love your blog!

Cindy Adkins said...

So funny!! Great pics - but so sorry you lost your camera! I hope it turns up somewhere. Buster says thank you for commenting on "his" post and he feels sad that you miss your kitty! He will be your "adopt a kitty" if you want :)
Hugs, Cindy

You always make me laugh Diana, your imaginary life looks great, love the snowman cookie. Speaking of January Jones what the heck happened to Madmen? I sure hope you find your camera soon!

Ceekay-THINKIN of HOME said...

Lynne said...

You Always make me laugh!
I rooted very hard for Wisconsin, today! We don't like Oregon one bit! There, I said it nicely! I hope that you find your camera! I've misplaced mine a couple times right here in the house.

Sonya@Beyond the Screen Door said...

We bloggers sure are attached to our cameras! Hard to do what we do without them. Hope you find it soon. I know that's frustrating. Happy New Year!

Jenni said...

Oh, I feel for you, truly I do! Losing a camera is an awful thing to happen to a blogger! I am saying a prayer you find it! :)

I love that sweet little girl's dress! And both the snowman cookie and those cute snowman ornaments! :) Wonderful inspiration pictures! :)

I hope you had a good New Year's and that you have a great Tuesday, too!

Hope You Find It! Hilarious post....I want to come sit on your sun porch! I am feeling the need for a little vitamin D! Happy New Year!

Pam Kessler said...

Oh no, I am trying to be good on my diet and then wham you show a photo of a cookie. With icing on it!!! Love your fairy tale day. Sounds perfect to me.

Donna said...

So funny, Diana!! Glad to read in your next post that you found your camera, yeah! While I could do without seeing all of that snow and ice for the rest of my life, I can always dream that some day I'll be looking like that blond:) Great quote, by the way!

Suzanne@Meridian Road said...

Oh, January Jones. I'm pretty sure she's the reason my husband likes Madmen. But that's OK, since I'm pretty much in it only for Mr. Draper. :)
I hope you find your camera soon! That's a bummer.
