And now you know why I absolutely hate New Year’s resolutions. I am the worst at sticking to them. I haven’t even kept up with the documentation of my daily pic challenge.
I didn’t even make it to the second week!
How lame am I?
But alas, I am going to do my catch-up now. Then I am going to print these so I can update my book.
On another note, as life keeps moving along fairly quickly, I have decided to embrace my phone camera and other technology in keeping up with this endeavor. So I am including screen shots (which I just learned how to do on my Mac after having one since 2008–don’t ask!) and what not. I am hoping this will become more of a habit and I will get better at carving out a part of my day for the taking of pictures. Then it will be my ultimate goal to use my big camera and really take more time with the subject matter and the details.
First day back at work after the holiday and it was a full one. I snapped this coming over the hill in my neighborhood to my house. I had left the house at 7:45 a.m. and this was when I was finally getting home. After working most of the day, then running the kids to the dentist, then getting my car’s oil changed, I was finally going home and collapsing.
The ironic thing is that looks like the sun setting but it’s really just a streetlight.
Cool effect though.
A little lettering practice with two new brush pens that arrived in the mail.
Still need to practice more.
A lot more.
Driving home from piano lesson with the girl and saw a fabulous sunset.
Love displays of God’s glory in the little moments.
So I got a new iPhone for Christmas and it has the slo-mo video capability. And guess who loves to make little vignettes for me to find?
Yep, this guy!
What’s a mom to do?
Take a screen shot and keep it as evidence to embarrass the boy later.
Bad mom alert–I made Sarge get the kids pizza for this Friday night and then take me out for a steak dinner.
To quote the youth of today, “sorry, not sorry!”
Laundry. The never ending battle.
No other explanation necessary.
Lunch date with this boy to an all-you-can-eat pizza buffet while Sarge works weekend duty.
After their Friday night pizza dinner, it was just too much pizza for the girl to tag along.
The ubiquitous car selfie.
P.S. You can see the gray hairs that I’ve been growing out-no more color for this girl (at least for now). May dedicate a whole separate post to the saga of going au natural!
I got a Fitbit for Christmas and even though I had been wearing it since December 30, I had never hit the daily goal of 10,000 steps.
Until today! I felt this screen shot was worth counting as a photo since I viewed this as a big accomplishment.
I have the Bible app on my phone. While working in my office this day, I thought I had put the lock screen on but lo and beyond, I looked down to find this verse. I had to screenshot it as it spoke to me, especially as I am still trying to work through work issues.
This was another late night for me. I left the house at 7:30 a.m. and didn’t get home until 10:30 p.m. As I was locking up for the night, I found my boy’s little study area lit up like this.
His move into middle school has been very interesting as he takes more of an interest in his academics. Love that he is finding his groove.
Movie night with the nieces (and their dad) and the daughter. Photo creds to my girl.
I know this probably shouldn’t count as I didn’t take it but I wasn’t as on the ball with picture taking on my Friday!
I made the whole family go to a huge antiques show this Saturday and for once, Sarge and I were in agreement about a piece of furniture.
It was as if the stars had aligned for a perfect harmonious, marital moment.
It didn’t last.
It was the birthday of one of my closest friends from college and I found this little gem on Pinterest. I sent it to her and will be keeping it for myself.
So that’s the summary for the last two weeks!
Here’s to building that habit and really honing those subject matter choices and photography skills.
