10 Censored Pictures From My Cellphone


Tired, anyone?


Thank you, Sasha, for hosting Monday Listicles where this week’s list is 10 photos from your phone. I happen to take a lot of pictures with mine so I’m sharing 10 fairly recent (and decent (kidding)) from 2012. 

This is a picture from my tiny village about 7:00am, a few weeks ago, as I’m walking in for my coffee fix. I do not live in Denver. Those are not the foothills of the Rocky Mountains. That’s Sandy rolling into Chicago from the East.


Two of the most important people in my life. My nurses and best friends on girls' night in Sea Island, Georgia.



This precious little thing was walking ahead of me into a Bears game in September. So cute! I want a tutu and an orange with navy hair bow.


Sue, Frisky and me on the island of Nevis on a total beach day. We were feeling extremely relaxed right about then. Love no makeup, no hair and flip flop vacations.


Why? Why do I have a carrot between my toes and taking a picture? Well, there’s a whole story for this one but we won’t be going there. Usually pictures like this one get deleted (not really). She must have said feed me or something. She didn't really eat it either.


Tacking around the buoy during the Sunday sailboat races. Boats almost colliding. My daughter is the captain of the one and only all girls’ racing crew in a fleet of 28 E-scow sailboats.


The Amalfi Coast at sunset from our terrace.


My favorite beach dog, Miel, at Bikini Bootcamp in  Tulum, Mexico. I would like to be sleeping just like that but on the sun lounger.

 

A delicatessen at the entrance to Campo de Fiori (outdoor market) in Rome. We helped the proprietress move the Mortadella out into the street so she could slice it for a customer. Look at the size of that knife! Being helpful pays off. She gave us samples.


Gelato, of course, from Florence, Italy. My favorite, strawberry, is in the middle.

    1. I know. I have a camera that I use but my phone (when I remember to take it with me) is so much easier to capture a moment and then download.

  3. Look at the size of that knife? Look at the size of that Mortadella!
    I love Italy, my family owns a house on a private island in the Gulf of Venice and it's just heaven there.

    1. Her knife was the first thing we noticed! It was two feet long! It tasted amazing too. You are one of the luckiest people on earth. I love Italy so much. Wish I could live there. It truly is heaven on earth.

  5. Wow, that is a huge hunk of meat! I would definitely wear a tutu if it weren't that people would likely point and laugh. So cute.

    1. We'll wear them together and then anyone can talk about us and we won't care. Always helps to have a partner in crime.

    1. I wish I could be Miel, too. Eat great food, exercise, run, swim and hang on one of the most beautiful beaches. And a hottie (Miel's daddy) runs the exercise program. Nothing better...well, almost.

  11. If I posted pictures from my cell phone, all you would see is how cute my two dogs are! That Mortadella looks amazing!

    1. I have all kinds of stuff on there. I leave my phone around and people take pictures with it thinking they're funny. I'd love to see how cute your dogs are. That Mortadella WAS amazing!

  12. Oh, my goodness, you have been to a lot of places! That picture of Sandy coming into Chicago is amazing. My husband drives east in the mornings, and he says the clouds over Lake Michigan often remind him of a mountain range.

  13. Hey Ginny! It was our first year with the kids both away in college. Lovely. So we got away a lot. That Sandy picture is my favorite. It truly was a site, like a wall between my house and the lake. I can only imagine what it looked like from the city hanging over Lake Michigan. Wish I would have seen that.
