Project 365: days 4-10

The challenge to take a photo a day for the whole year continues. And I have to say I've been quite pleased with the fact that I've been able to capture some images that ordinarily I would have missed out on, simply because I'm carrying my camera everywhere I go. (See days 7 & 10 in particular)

DAY 4/365
Taking a pretty shortcut after a trip to the dentist.

Finally seeing the sun after what feels like months. I barely remember what the sky looks like when it's tinted blue!

On a whim, I bought a box of chocolate cake mix & a can of cream cheese icing while on my regular grocery run. Because it's always a good day for cupcakes.

Oh gosh...this was the first day when I was so thrilled that I was taking my camera EVERYWHERE I went, even to work. We just got a fresh bit of sticky snow overnight and as I walked into work, I saw that some students had done this bit of snow grafitti on the side of the school.

Mmmm...comfort food for dinner. (Miso soup with carrots, bok choy, and puffy tofu.)

Just a great-looking (to me) storefront in the city. The wood on the front of this place is really nice. Also, decided to experiment with B&W just to mix things up a bit.

This afternoon I came home to find Ziggy, my neighbour's kitty, hanging out on our steps. He's so friendly! I see him all the time but was so happy I had my camera so I could get a picture of him. He's apparently a bit camera-shy though...kept moving everytime I tried to get a picture. This was the best I got...

Again, you can click through to my flickr set to see all of the photos lined up together.

Happy new year!

Happy new year, friends! Hope all who celebrate December holidays had a lovely time with friends and family.

Have you made any new years' resolutions? Do you do that sort of thing? I usually don't but this year I've made a few. Mostly boring stuff like decluttering and getting my life more organized at home. I know, yawn, right?

But I've also started a little project for the year! I've jumped onto the "picture a day/365 project" bandwagon. This means I'll be taking a picture a day for the whole darn year or whenever I decide this project is far too tedious to continue. Today is Day 3 and I'm going strong. Here's what I've got so far.....

Day 1/365
I started 2011 by painting my nails on New Year's Day. Base coat of black and then a couple of coats of a deep, dark red (Revlon's Vixen) on top. Makes me feel dangerous and a bit like an Olsen twin.

A blurry but sweet picture of Noah taken at the dinner table. He has perfected the art of looking adorable in hopes of getting a few table scraps. It worked. He got some brocolli.

Made the yummiest stew tonight from a recipe found on the Gluttonous Vegan blog. I had to sub in rapini instead of nappa cabbage or kale because it's slim pickin's in the green aisle of the grocery store the last few days. I think it's because there's a big recall on kale and other veggies because of salmonella. This was super yummy but rapini has a bit of a strong taste for this dish. Will definitely make it again but next time with kale (minus the salmonella).

Is anyone else taking part in the 365 challenge? Leave a comment with a link so I can check out your pictures!

PS. If you're interested, I've created a set for all of my daily pictures over on my flickr.
