Focus: Day 21/366

A friend and I took a basic photography class today. I wish it would have been more hands on. I did get a lot from it and I hope to keep practicing and get better at taking pictures.

Swamp: Day 17/366

I took this picture in November when I went down to Louisiana to visit family. I want to spend an entire day just taking pics of all the things I love about Louisiana. It seems all my trips are usually rushed and I don't get time to do the touristy things as I'm trying to spend as much time with family as I can.

Tile: Day 16/366

House repairs and cleaning continue around here. Tonight I scrubbed the grout under the kitchen table. The grout is chipped in a few places and needs some attention. I figured I should clean it before trying to match the color for the repairs.

Too Pink: Day 15/366

We painted the kids bathroom and hallway today. The color we choose as a neutral was just a little too much on the pink side. Luckily I had paint left over from when we remodeled our bathroom last spring. This picture shows the difference in the two colors.

Hash Browns: Day 12/366

A few weeks ago we ate breakfast at Waffle House. The boys all got the hash browns and loved them. I made my own version this morning and they were a hit!!

Storage: Day 11/366

Along with painting, we are also putting excess stuff into a storage unit to stage the house. I made two trips this morning... I think I'll have a couple more boxes ready to go tonight as well. I can't wait to done with this phase. I really hope the house sells quickly so that we don't have to stress over possibly renting it.

Wrong Color: Day 10/366

I've been working really hard to get the house ready to be put on the market. I was painting the wall in my room earlier where some drywall had been repaired. Only after I was finished did I notice I used the wrong shade! Doh!!

Foggy: Day 7/366

I took this picture last January. The neighbor's street light cast an eerie glow through the fog.

We spent most of the day boxing us stuff for storage in anticipation of our move this summer, so I didn't take any pictures.

Turkey: Day 4/366

We received a turkey fryer from my Dad a few years ago. It has become our favorite way to prepare a turkey. It's fast and the meat is so juicy and tender.

Stacked: Day 3/366

Jacob started stacking the left over red cups after our New Years Eve party. The next day I was out running errands and he asked me to pick up more cups for him. He keeps stacking and restacking the cups into different shapes. He has even taken to timing himself to see how fast he can stack them. Who knew it could be so cheap to entertain this kid!!

Revival: Day 1/366

I'm going to try to revive this blog. I intend to post a photo a day for this entire year. It's a leap year, so there will be a bonus day! The picture below was taken shortly after midnight last night. We had friends over to celebrate the New Year. The picture was taken with my iPhone 4.

I plan to use this photo-a-day exercise as a way to improve my photography skills. I know the above picture won't win any awards, but it's the only picture I've taken today.
