November Photo A Day: Fail

I haven't been keeping up with the November Photo A Day Challenge lately.  I have had trouble thinking of anything good for the prompts.  I just haven't been feeling it I guess.  I have only done two pics in the last week.  I think all of my few creative juices have been used in thinking of and starting craft projects for Christmas.

Day 14:   Eating

I've been making Brussels Sprouts a lot lately since I've been seeing recipes for them all over.  Seasoned, a little olive oil and roasted with balsamic syrup over them...  yum. 

Day 17:  5 O'clock

The storms finally moved through and were over at 5 yesterday.  Luckily the only damage we had was the tree that broke in half towards other trees and not toward the houses.  You can see it leaning on the left and it is really behind the neighbor's yard, not ours.  I didn't use a filter on this picture, the sky was still sort of a strange color because of the storms to the east.

November Photo A Day: Days 9 & 10

Day 9:  Mine

I bought a pack of two Pretzel Croissants from Trader Joe's on Friday and they were all mine!  I didn't share and they were gone by Saturday.  Delicious! 

Day 10:  Book

A not very inspired photo of a book.  One of my favorite kinds of books though, a photo album.

Wish List: Forever 21

I haven't looked at Forever 21 online or been to one of their stores in ages in my efforts to buy less and buy only quality things.  Today though I caved and checked out their online offerings.  There were a few cute things...

Forever 21 at ShopStyle

FOREVER 21 Modernist Ribbed Poncho $29.80

Forever 21 at ShopStyle

FOREVER 21 Quilted Raglan Sweatshirt $19.80

Forever 21 at ShopStyle

FOREVER 21 Glam Hour Sequined Cami $22.80

Would this be cute for Holiday parties?

November Photo A Day: Day 7

Day 7:  Yes!

This image garnered a YES! from me because I was excited to be done with my work day and didn't talk myself out of going to the bodyworks class at the gym.  I was ready to go!  Soon after, however, it turned to a NO! when I saw the instructor whose workout I don't usually care for was subbing for the usual instructor of the class.  Ugh.  Oh well, still better than being at the office.

November Photo A Day: Days 4,5 & 6

Day 4: Table

Our tiny dining room with the big table.

Day 5:  I Collect...

I don't really collect anything except for way too many clothes, shoes and accessories.  The "collection" is ever changing and expanding...

Day 6:  Music

This is actually from my books from when I received piano lessons when I was little.

November Photo A Day: Days 2 & 3

The prompt for November 2 was, I did this today...

For lunch I roasted some butternut squash and was making a salad to go with it.  I usually only use our dull knives because I am not very good at cutting vegetables (or anything) and not cutting one or more of my fingers as well.  Don't even ask what happened when I tried to use a mandolin! Ouch! I used one of the sharp knives this day...

November 3:  P is for...

pretty fall leaves or pretty fall day.

November Photo A Day: Day 1


I am going to play along with the FatMumSlim November Photo A Day Challenge this month. I enjoyed the challenge in September but found it difficult to do everyday.  I'm going to try to not to be hard on myself if I don't take a picture related to the prompt for everyday but I am going to try my best to be inspired and creative (even for a minute) each day.

On a side note, can you believe it is November already?  Crazy.

Here is my picture for Day 1:
