I've often seen blog posts where people take ten pictures on the tenth day of the month, one every hour
and I've thought it sounded like a fun thing to do, but I ALWAYS forget!
But... thanks to the magic of facebook,
a little birdie (Alita) reminded me that it was 10 on 10 day!
Thank you, Alita...
Here is a day in my life.
Woke up this morning to a dusting of snow and evidence that I wasn't just imagining that skunky smell.
He's out there somewhere and he's been walking on my porch!
Julia's breakfast of champions?
(I have since cleaned up all those crumbs.)
The "I finished my schoolwork super early!" happy dance.
(Just one picture could not contain that exuberance.)
I finally find time for a shower.
While emptying the dishwasher, I took a moment to set up this shot.
(Yes, people... I lead an exciting life... I know.)
Our one and only winter storm knocked a branch off of one of our cherry trees.
I went out and "rescued" a bunch of branches with the hopes that I could force and early bloom by putting them in a vase.
I had just decided that it wasn't going to work
(I have a black thumb)
when I noticed that the buds were changing and that little mini-flower buds were starting to pop!!
Before you know it, I'll have cherry blossoms in my house, but not outside for a while.
(One can only hope that these are not the cause of my spring allergies!)
Hmmm... time for another picture, what can I do?
Hey! The mailman just dropped off the mail.
Why don't I stick the camera into the mailbox, set the timer and see what happens?
Oh, sure... it's crooked and there are things I could have done differently,
but I live on a busy road at a street light where cars line up and people stare at me wondering,
"Why the heck is that woman shoving her camera into her mailbox?"
So, after four or five tries, I figured this was good enough.
Besides, it kind of makes me giggle.
Cleaned out and organized the pantry.
(Yep... still living on the wild side.)
After torturing my kids by taking stupid pictures that they really didn't want on my blog,
I turned around and saw this shadow.
Is it kind of like the groundhog?
If I see "a" shadow will spring come early?
Taken with my cell phone while on the way to the girls' riding lessons.
Not bad for a cell pic.
And that's where it ends, folks, since soon thereafter darkness descended upon the earth
and there was no more light,
therefore no pictures of the pretty horses.
