Project 366 – Week 52

358/366
week 52! and
so, at long (very long) last,
we approach ‘the end’

359/366
what started out fun
has become daily torture
(slight hyperbole)

360/366
eggnog coffee and
The Log crackling on TV
peaceful quiet calm

361/366
reading, puttering
at the end of each chapter
savoring a book

362/366
new rule! no starting
a new book till I’ve read this
stack of magazines.

363/366
the grocery store
is always out of sourdough
…something I should know?

364/366
I wish The Log was
available all year or
at least all winter…

Project 366 – Week 51

351/366
Sunday at five, all
errands and chores done. wait, the
weekend is over

352/366
ok, I’m going
to do this: powering through
one more article.

353/366
does coolness outweigh
tedium of formatting?
I cannot decide.

354/366
annual snow day
slushy ruts, giant puddles
squishy-soaky feet

355/366
it’s a very good
thing this is almost over
I’m boring myself

356/366
it’s the end of the
world as we know it and I
feel fine! (not dead yet)

357/366
the days are short but
feel even shorter when the
sun hides behind clouds

Project 366 – Week 50

344/366
birthday shopping in
December is always a
strange experience

345/366
hello post office
aren’t you an exciting place
on December 10?

346/366
warning: this “express”
lane is only express if
you’re tortoise, not hare

347/366
running in the dark?
beware of inattentive
drivers running reds

348/366
apparently this week
I’m addicted to pudding.
I guess that’s ok.

349/366
an unstated goal:
1,000 tweets by year-end
reached on 12/14.

350/366
down the street, made of
Christmas lights, a menorah.
tonight, all aglow.

Project 366 – Week 49

337/366
too many things to
do — just keep swimming — the list
it is bottomless

338/366
that first time you dig
your thumb into the peel of
a mandarin orange

339/366
sometimes tv in
the background can be good for
productivity

340/366
December issue
done by Friday? I think I
can I think I can…

341/366
promptly at 8, the
noise begins, a whirring sound
like a leaf blower

342/366 omg, it does exist…
slanted rain, darkness.
then, sun comes out; the mountains
wear coats of fresh snow

343/366
someone’s having a
party people spilling in
to the street laughing

Project 366 – Week 48

330/366
terrible tv
movies are so much better
when watched with twitter

331/366
something’s different
this time and, regardless of
wordcount, that’s a win.

332/366
look out the window
to see a crane swinging past
snow-dusted mountains

333/366
struggling to finish
absolute blank article
before end of month

334/366
“do you need any
holiday stamps?” the clerk at
the post office asks

335/366
article: complete.
“keeping a commonplace book”
will sleep well tonight

336/366 NONSENSE HAIKU!*
pose, frozen river
pink lemonade with cherries
sulky kitty preys

*inspired by this random line: kitty pink lemonade river poses prayers cherries sulky frozen

Project 366 – Week 47

323/366
wind whips the plastic
sheeting off the unfinished
house across the street

324/366
the first big windstorm
of the season continues
darkness all day long

325/366
it’s a good thing that
I manage to get work done
in spite of myself

326/366
above the city
constellations visible
Cassiopeia

327/366
one dish thanksgiving
dinner: the most brilliant
idea ever?

328/366
drivers snug in cars
don’t see the need to stop for
runners in the rain

329/366
disconcerting is:
this woman following me
wherever I go.

Project 366 – Week 46

316/366
reading with curtains
drawn, listening to rain fall
outside the window

317/366
unexpected smiles
and ‘hi’s from sidewalk strangers
what’s up, Vancouver?

318/366
a cashless soci-
ety? not as long as we
still need laundry change

319/366
is the freezer the
greatest invention ever?
I think it might be.

320/366
so dark I could sleep
all day—I think I need a
SAD lamp alarm clock

321/366
woman carrying
an oversized umbrella
hogging the sidewalk

322/366
mushroom lasagna
inspired by reading food blogs
on the interwebs

Project 366 – Week 45

309/366
a lazy Sunday
reading with popcorn + tea
then a lovely nap.

310/366
the best part about
running in the rain is the
hot shower after 🙂

311/366
after a year of
campaigning, the winner is…
Barack Obama!

312/366
a group of runners
doing hill repeats in the
dark at QE Park

313/366
starting to wonder
if this card is defective
chip error again

314/366
uh-oh! this weekend
I need to NaNoWriMore
and more and more and…

315/366
winter is coming
an unoriginal but true
sentiment today

Project 366 – Week 44

302/366
discovered I have
eight unfinished novels, not
“just” five as I’d thought

303/366
being productive
is more satisfying than
procrastination

304/366
down the hall, knocking:
tap-tap, tap-tap. “open the
door, I can hear you.”

305/366
3-something a.m.
more knocking: thud-thump thud-thump
then: “it’s the police.”

306/366
it’s November 1st
on your mark, get set, go! time
to NaNoWriMo!

307/366
you can’t call someone
a “terrible person” for be-
ing disappointed

308/366
argh, fruit flies! …and then
I  recall the apricot
eye experiments…
