January Photo A Day Challenge: Days 21 - 27

I've only missed one day of the January Photo A Day Challenge so far.  I'm still trying to find inspiration and motivation in this dismal winter weather.  You can get more info about the challenge here.

Day 21:  Blue

This is another picture from our December vacation.

Day 23:  Bedtime

Day 24:  My Space

Jada is always in my space.   I'd miss it if she wasn't.

Day 25:  A Taste of Winter

I shoveled the driveway.

Day 26:  Fun Stuff

I had fun on the 26th.  I saw Rock of Ages (which was so good) and had some very expensive (overpriced) wine with a plastic lid.  I haven't seen the movie but I'm sure the live show is a million times better. 

Day 27:  Something I Bought

I bought this bowl a few years ago in Cabo San Lucas.  I love the colors.

January Photo A Day Challenge: Days 13 - 20

I'm still enjoying the photo a day challenge this month.  I'd like to get even more creative with it but I'm using the ridiculous cold and snowy weather as my excuse as to why so many pictures are ones I took in December when we were on vacation.

You can get more info about the challenge here.

Day 13:  Makes Me Smile

Thinking about our trip to Sanibel last month makes me smile.  This is the view from our hotel room.  It was a wonderful trip.  I love Sanibel Island so much.

Day 14:  Three Things

I always want to accessorize more but don't take the time most mornings to do it or I'm just not awake enough to think about it.  I was proud this morning I remembered to slap on a necklace.

The three things prompt reminded me of something I've heard before about outfits being more interesting if they had at least three things...so here are three things...collared shirt, sweater and a necklace.

Day 15:  Black and White

Stupid snowflakes on my windshield

Day 16:  Sun

This is the last time I felt the warm sun on me and I had to go on vacation to feel it.  It was our trip to Sanibel in December.

Day 17:  Tiny

This was a last minute image to get the pic in for the day.  A tiny frog key chain.

Day 18:  Happy Place

My happy place is the beach.  Again, this is a picture from Sanibel.

Day 19:  Breakfast

I'm on a pancake kick for breakfast on the weekends.

Day 20:  To Do List

To Do:  Be Grateful

January Photo A Day: Days 7 - 12

 Here are my latest images in the Fat Mum Slim Photo A Day challenge.

Day 7:  Upside Down

Not really that creative but I had been in the house for 3 days straight at this point and the temperatures were below zero.  All I could think about was cold and snow.

Day 8:  Lucky Number

One of the benefits of being snowed in is sleeping in on a day you would normally be going to work or at work at this time in the morning.  I was lucky this morning because I was still in bed at 7:17.

Day 9:  Natural

Afternoon Snack

Day 10:  Man Made

Broke out my old iPod for treadmill running.

Day 11:  Looking Down

The snow is finally starting to recede and I am getting out of the house more!

Day 12:  Colourful


I took a jewelry making class a few years ago and this is the necklace they had you make.  It is a bit too colorful for my taste so I have never worn it.

Inspiration For A New Year

To celebrate my 600th post and the New Year, here are some inspiring quotes that I want to keep closer to heart. 

Please note:  I did not create these quotes or images myself - I have attempted to link back to where I found the image.
