A Day in My Life

For a photo contest (yes, one of those I do occasionally for a digiscrap site I visit) this week, we were asked to take pics of us doing ordinary things in our lives. I thought this was good for two reasons. I have been thinking of doing a 365 next year (where you take a pic a day for the whole year), but also because I didn’t know if my life was that interesting. However, I think this challenge proved that it doesn’t matter if the pic is of something mundane, if it’s something that’s going on in your life. Yes, we remember the momentous moments, but usually forget the everyday ones. So, here are my two entries.

Here I am sewing a Christmas gift for my sister. Or rather, I am pinning pattern pieces to fabric. Hopefully I’ll post the finished product here.


I read Pride and Prejudice at least once a year. It’s my favorite book, and I just finished it (as you can see, in this pic I am almost to the end).


As for the 365, what do you think? I am fairly certain I will not be posting every day on this blog, since I don’t know if I would have the time for it. However, I will be uploading to my Flickr account, and then probably doing a weekly roundup here.

You know, I was thinking of doing a 365 ... maybe if you do it I would be motivated. We could do it together! Even if you don't post every day, if you at least take the pix you could upload them all in order the next day. If you do it, I will!

Great pictures! I'd love to see your 365.

You read Pride and Prejudice once a year! whoa. What discipline. I've never read it once.

I am such a geek that the first glance I had of your pattern made me think it was a Dungeons & Dragons map! *LOL*

Btw, it's a boy! We thought it would probably be a boy since almost everyone in Keith's family is male. He's healthy and kicking up a storm!

I love Jane Austen and Pride and Prejudice especially. If you haven't read anything by Jude Morgan, you should try one, as they're similar in tone to Austen and almost, if not just, as much fun.

And a 365 would be fun, I think. Then you could design a planner for yourself the following year!

Lovely pictures, and a lovely idea. If I wasn't completely photographically incompetent, I'd join you, as it would be a great way to keep track of the new baby. Maybe I'll try anyways...
