So, just FYI, this blogging project is a hassle.
Firstly, I have to figure out which day is what.
Then, I have to strategize how I’m going to get that food, activity or object incorporated into my day.
Once I do that, and act on it, documentation is integral. I photograph or film the event.
After that brouhaha, there’s the uploading and editing.
The final stage is the post itself, which means choosing what photographic material to go with and then writing a blurb about the whole experience.
A lot of the time, there aint a whole god damn lot to say about the matter.
Imagine writing an essay on an arbitrary topic, each and every day- it’s bananas.
So some days are, naturally, much harder than others.
But, I kid you not, EVERY single time I sit down to write a post, and contemplate just doing a photo journal of the event ( half assing it), I think of the parable of The Retiring Carpenter.
In case you’ve never heard it before, I’ll share my rendition of it
A carpenter decides to retire.
Her boss/friend insists she complete one last building project for her before she hangs up the proverbial hammer.
It’s a house.
The carpenter just wanted to get it over with so she could go sip pina coladas in Florida with her wife, so she slaps together the house. She cuts corners, uses subpar materials and performs shoddy workwomanship.
All in all a totally shitty build.
When the job was done, her boss/friend shows up, hands the keys to the carpenter and says, “This is your house, it’s my gift to you.”
Ugh. Right in the ovaries, amiright?
I may have modified the story to modernize it a smidge 😉
Anyway, for some reason, whenever I post, I think if I don’t put ‘enough’ effort into it, I will end up living in a crappy house with inconvenient light switch locations and a cracked foundation.
I don’t wanna live there ! I want all my cabinet doors to line up! I need all my low hanging light fixtures to be in no traffic areas! You don’t get Eat Pray Love successful from a few swift captions !
Today was National Chocolate Ice Cream Day
I used President’s Choice Vegan Coconut Milk Chocolate Ice Cream and garnished it with some dark chocolate shavings, chocolate covered coconut pieces, cocoa powder and a raspberry
100% vegan, 100% delicious
I don’t really have much else to say about it, that’s sorta what prompted me to go off the head earlier
