FMS Photo a Day Challenge - July

I've been playing along with the Photo a Day Challenge set by
since August last year.

It's so much fun I'm at it again.
I add to this post daily
and also post the photos to
Fat Mum Slim's Photo A Day Facebook group.

1. Happiness is...knitting a poncho for a friend. Yes, a poncho!!

2. Shoes - My favourite shoes. I wish I could wear them all year round. They make my feet happy!!

3. Cold - Last week on the farm we had a few frosty mornings. I hadn't seen frost for ages, it doesn't get cold enough here.

4. Red, White or Blue - I choose blue! Our beautiful blue winter sky, with a few puffy white clouds thrown in for good measure.

5. Love - I still love my rings after almost 11 years. They're a beautiful symbol that I love my husband truly, madly, deeply. Yes, I'm a Savage Garden fan! Their Affirmation CD reminds me of when we met.

6. Fave Smell - I love the smell of jasmine, but it's not blooming right now. I love the smell of rain, but it's not raining right now. I love the smell of the beach, and we just happened to go to the coast today. Sand, salt, surf...can you smell it? The beach + Queensland + Winter = Perfection!

7. Where You Are - At my favourite place (the block), with my favourite girl (Miss 5), doing a favourite thing (having a picnic).

8. Path - A sandy path to the beach at Noosa.

9. 3 Things - Three pretty prints on our kitchen wall.

10. Smooth -  I love the feel of my smooth rose quartz crystal. Rose quartz is supposed to bring loving energy into your heart chakra. Every now and then I give it a rub just in case this stuff really works!

11. I Wore This!  One of my favourites.

12. A Bad Habit - Turning lights on in the day time. Well, I don't have a problem with it, obviously, but my husband begs to differ!

13. 4 O'Clock - At 4 o'clock today I was out taking photos for my other photo challenge, 365 Days In Nature when I spied an ogre in the clouds!!

14. Edible - This one is from the archives (my boy is now almost 9!). Edible rocks on Bob's building site.

15. Outside The Window - Outside the window of my little girl's bedroom, the orange trumpet creeper blooms.

16. Bottle - I used this photo last month but I have to use it again today because there is no better bottle than a glass one for milk! (PS The background in my photo is the same background on the label).

17. Inspirational - Last year I participated in the Relay for Life to raise funds for cancer research. It was both emotional and inspirational. I'm about to sign on again for this year's relay, which happens to be on my birthday!

18. Number - My husband and I both had the day off today, so after we dropped the kids at school, guess what we did?

19. Building - It's just a vacant block at the moment, but if all goes to plan, we'll be building a house on it next year!

20. Hot - This is the best kind of 'hot' at an outdoor winter party. But you do have to keep turning, like you're on a rotisserie, to keep warm!!

21. Fave Food - I was tossing up whether to go with this or sushi, but I decided on oysters because they are the ultimate luxury food for me. If they're served with an exquisite champagne, followed by a cheese platter (including a beautiful piquant blue cheese) I will have died and gone to foodie heaven!!

22. Grey - Oh, seriously...I have to point them out!? OK, the things I do for FMS Photo a Day!!

23. I Drew This! And 127 more in my "wish-I-was-a-bridal-designer" phase about ten years ago (pre-children).

24. D is for...Dad...mine!

25. Ground - After school we had our regular Mum's group at the play ground. And the kids think we get together so they can play...

26. The Everyday - Washing uniforms!

27. Black + White - I haven't converted a photo to black & white for ages. Quite happy with this one.

28. This Is New! Miss 5 had her best friend over for a play date for the very first time today. They have secrets already!

29. Perspective - The good old Aussie back yard icon, from a slightly different perspective!

30. Friendship - I'm using a photo that's a few months old because one of the things I hold most dear is the friendship I have with these girls. We met at teacher's college 26 years ago and now I only see them once a year, when we get together for our annual girls' weekend.

31. Workplace - It's only part time (relief teaching) the moment, but in 7 weeks I'll be working here full time...for the first time in 10 years!!
