Day 8: A Bad Habit

I have lots of bad habits. But I didn't want to take a picture of my nibbled-on nails, the half-empty can of Pringles in my pantry, or of the speedometer as I went home going 45 in a 35. So I took a picture of my kitchen sink. My husband has agreed to do the dishes after dinner. He hasn't done then dishes since Monday. That's his bad habit. My bad habit is that I don't do anything about it and let the dishes pile up. So, here's a picture of our kitchen sink, with some photo editing.


Day 7

I know, I know, today isn't really Day 7, it's Day 8. But last night, my computer was being sooo slow and I couldn't even get the picture to upload to my editing site. So I waited and posted it first thing this morning. Please forgive my tardiness. And don't worry. Today's picture should be posted later today.

Days 5 and 6

Day 6: From a low angle.

Day 5, Coming Soon

I did not get a chance to post my Day 5 picture yesterday, but I took it, and I will get it up later today, along with Day 6. I skipped Music Monday in honor of the Labor Day weekend, and due to the fact that on Friday, my sinus and respiratory system staged an all-out attack on my well-being. On Saturday, my asthma joined the assault. It was so sad that the weather was so lovely, but I hardly had the energy to go downstairs to lay on the couch. By Monday evening, I was feeling better, and today, only the final vestiges of battle still remain: a hacking cough and the remnants of what could have become pneumonia if I hadn't stared taking Sudafed 12 hour decongestant and Mucinex. (FYI, those two meds together are what I swear by when it comes to sinus infections and respiratory infections. They clear everything out and keep you from getting really sick if you start taking them at the onset of sinus symptoms).

I did manage to bake some bread and some Nutella Cupcakes this weekend. The cupcakes turned out pretty well, but I think that next time I will frost them. They were just a bit on the dry side.

So that was my weekend. How was yours?

Day 4

I have to be honest. I cheated on this one. I waited for DH to come home from work to take me to the park for this picture. But then he didn't talk me till after it got dark. So I'm posting a picture from our honeymoon.

Day 4: Something Green

Day 3

I love my point-and shoot, but I have to wonder if a better camera with a more sophisticated lens might have better captured the moon, which is that tiny little crescent shaped thingy just above the tree.

Photo Challenge: Day 2

Photoblog Challenge

Good morning everyone! It's Friday! I am very excited. Know why? Because it's a 3 day weekend!!! The only thing better than Labor Day weekend is Thanksgiving Break. And the only thing better than Thanksgivng Break is Spring Break. And the only thing better than Spring Break is Christmas Break. And the only thing better than Christmas Break is... you guessed it, the LAST DAY OF SCHOOL! But I digress.

Yesterday I was going to start a 30 day photography challenge. But the assignment for Day 1 was a self-portrait. And after I got home from work, I slept for two hours, woke up to say goodbye to my husband (stupid football game and friends who like to watch the stupid football game), and then pretty much just sat on the couch, waiting for it to be late enough for me to justify going back to bed. So I took my self portrait with my phone on the way to work. And I'm going to post Day One and Day Two today. But not now. I haven't taken the Day 2 photo yet. I'm not even sure what it's supposed to be, but I have my camera with me at school today. So I'll get it and then I will blog it. Be excited. I'm sure it will be epic. Or not. But at least it will help me get some pictures on this thing. I realize that my blog is extremely picture deficient. That's probably because my life is really photo-op deficient.

Anyway, without further ado, please allow me the pleasure of introducing you to the Metamorphosis 30 Day Photography Challenge. *drum roll*
