I’m subscribed to Time Capsule through Photojojo. Twice a month, it emails me a few pictures that I uploaded this time last year. It’s a lot more meaningful than I expected it to be when I signed up. There’s something wistful, nostalgic, bittersweet about observing you-a-year-ago when that wasn’t what you were looking for. Going after a little time travel is one thing, but being sent a message of “hey, remember this?” is special, somehow.

With that in mind, I need an incentive to get more pictures uploaded in a timely fashion. Since this blog is the main reason I do so, I’m going to post a pile of pictures this week. Right now, every time I think of photos, I think of the backlog I have on Flickr waiting to be posted, and that’s just a perfect recipe for blog constipation.  So what should I catch y’all up on first?

  • Michelle’s visit last month?
  • A knits round-up?
  • Or a pile of yarn?

If anyone votes before Wednesday, I shall do as the collective bids me.  In the meantime, some of my favorite friend-photos from the last few months.

Mandy’s come to visit me twice now, Carisa. Time to step it up.


Gwen points at goats.


This frog decided I was her friend because I was warm. I don’t mind being used.


Obligatory belly shot.


Making Michael laugh is my favorite thing.


I took Michelle to three knitter events while she was visiting, and I think she maybe knit four rows. I’m contemplating confiscating her stash.


Waffle houuuuuse!


Good Lord ‘n Lady my friends are gorgeous.

    I’d vote for Michelle’s visit mostly because I’m sorry I missed it … but I like knitting and yarn too.

    And did you decide on the captcha? It’s yarnporn!

    • Chelsea says:

      Yes, I love the captcha plugin that Michael found for me! You preload it with a list of good words and it generates the captchas off of those. (I’m always willing to add new words to the list, if you have suggestions.)

    All of the above, but with knitting and yarn first, please :-)

    I thought I had commented already on my iPad, but my typing there is not the best — probably got zapped out by your spam filter.

  3. Mandy says:

    Moar pics puhleez. I vote for knitting!

  4. Gwen says:

    I say all of the above!

    I think I’ve witnessed a bit of everything on the list. What would you have the most fun putting up first?

    I’ve got a similar thing going with each evening, it sends me tweets from one or two or more years ago that I tweeted on that date. (It probably works with other social media, but this is all I’ve authorized.) Sometimes it’s a great memory jog (“Oh, I remember that?”), but especially with personal replies, I can be left baffled.

  6. Michael?! says:

    I vote for whichever gets the most pictures up here! :D

    Also another way you can tell this is a real comment is this:

    This is a test of the Chelsea commenting system. Had this been a real comment, relevant information would be in this area.
