Living Outside the Stacks

Navigating through life away from the library


November Photo A Day Challenge: Days 10~15 {In the Dark Room}

Day 10: Book

Day 10 Book {Living Outside the Stacks}

When I moved out on my own, I took three things from my parents’ home: a few books, a chess set, and a doll.

Day 11: Memory

Day 11 Memory {Living Outside the Stacks}

1994. I was promoted to Corporal by Capt. DeMassey and the hubs. Side note, I’m pretty certain I was violating all kinds of reg with the glasses and lipstick.

Day 12: Clouds

Day 12 Clouds {Living Outside the Stacks}

The weather has been all over the place. One minute it’s cold, the next it’s hot. I need stability.

Day 13: Part of Me

Day 13 Part of Me {Living Outside the Stacks}

My eyes are my favorite features, even though I’m blind as a bat without my glasses.

Day 14: Eating

Day 14 Eating {Living Outside the Stacks}

One of my favorite salads is the Waldorf Salad. I’m not sure if it’s the juicy grapes, tart apple slices, or sweet and crunchy nuts that I like best.

Day 15: In My Pocket/Purse

Day 15 In My Purse {Living Outside the Stacks}

My bags are big. I carry a lot of stuff.

November Photo A Day Challenge: Days 4~9 {In the Dark Room}

Happy Monday, y’all! I hope you guys had a good weekend. My weekend started on Friday and lasted through Sunday. Yay for long weekends! We didn’t do anything, just hung out around the house. But, sometimes, you just need to take a break and do nothing, amiright? But there are times when you really need to get away from it all…

I think next time the hubs and I have some time off we’re going to try to go exploring.

This week’s pictures are a mix of camera phone and DSLR shots. I find that if I mix it up I’m more likely to post a picture for that day’s prompt. I guess this means I like flexibility in my tasks. See, these challenges are more than vanity ticks, they teach you about yourself too.

So without further ado, here are my interpretations:

Day 4 Table {Living Outside the Stacks}

Day 4: Table

Vintage material covers my table

Day 5 I Collect {Living Outside the Stacks}

Day 5: I collect

Coffee cups. Are you surprised?

Day 6: Music {Living Outside the Stacks}

Day 6: Music

I have absolutely no musical talent.

Day 7: Yes {Living Outside the Stacks}

Day 7: Yes

Yes to all this.

Day 8: Someone I miss {Living Outside the Stacks}

Day 8: Someone I miss

There are times when I’m ashamed to say that it doesn’t cross my mind that my dad is gone. Then there are times when it hits me like a ton of bricks and I crumble…

Day 9: Mine {Living Outside the Stacks}

Day 9: Mine

The best gift the hubs has ever given me. And that includes the children.

November Photo A Day Challenge: Days 1~3 {In the Dark Room}

It has been waaaay too long since I’ve picked up my camera to shoot anything other than my clothes.

{Fruit} Day 1 #FMSphotoaday

Day 1: Fruit

Confession: that apple was the last from a purchase from about a month ago. On one side it was wilted and bruised. Miss 18 was totally skeeved the whole time it was in her hands.

{I Did This Today} Day 2 #FMSphotoaday

Day 2: I Did This Today

I do this every day. For further proof, check out my Instagram feed.

{P is for Petal} Day 3 #FMSphotoaday

Day 3: P Is For…

Pretty petals on a purple flower.

July Photo A Day Challenge {In the Dark Room}

July Photo Challenge {Living Outside the Stacks}


It’s been a hot minute since I’ve participated in the Photo A Day Challenge hosted by Fat Mum Slim. I think I’ve been so focused on running and training for my 5K that I’ve forgotten to just enjoy taking photos, I hope this will get me back in the groove.

As usual, I’ll be participating on Instagram, you can follow me by clicking here. I’ll try to remember to do a weekly round up of photos here, just so I can get back in the habit of sharing something other than my sweaty face.

December Photo A Day {This Or That Thursday}

Hi, everyone! This has been such a long week. Most of the students are gone, so work has slowed down significantly, making for long days. I’ve been spending it putting together work schedules for the student workers for next semester. And doing clean up work.  But, mostly, I’ve been counting down to vacation. How’re you spending your last week before Christmas?

Day 13 Lights

Day 13 Light

Old St. Vincent’s Church in Cape Girardeau, MO. I love taking pictures of old buildings. There’s something mysterious and romantic about them.

Day 14 Something Green

Day 14 Something Green

My favorite green eye shadow from Bare Escentuals. It’s called “Glamourista”. Sexy, no?

Day 15 Outdoors

Day 15 Outdoors {Living Outside the Stacks}


I love the rocks in our front yard, I’m not much of a gardener. These I can maintain.

Day 16 Something You Made

Day 16 Something You Made {Living Outside the Stacks}


I’m making a throw out of the many skeins of scrap yarn that I have around the house. My next project will be some flowers for a couple of my Instagram buddies.

Day 17 On the Floor

Day 17 On the Floor {Living Outside the Stacks}


Cute shoes that I’ve had for years but can’t wear because I need to have the heels repaired. I found a cobbler a couple of days ago, pay day they’ll be going into the shop.

Day 18 Makes You Feel Merry

Day 18 Makes You Merry {Living Outside the Stacks}

Beginning tomorrow at 5 PM, I will be on vacation until 8 AM on 2 January 2013. This makes me incredibly merry.

So that’s my week in review. Nothing super exciting, just a life that I thank God for every single day. How was your week?

I’m linking up with Deb Duty for This or That Thursday.
