FMS Photo a Day Challenge - January 2014

I've been playing along with the Photo a Day Challenge set by
since August 2012 and haven't missed a single day.
Nope, not one day!

Now I'm back at it for another New Year.
I add to this post daily
and also post the photos to the
FMS Photo A Day Facebook group.

1. Lunch - Fish & Chips at the tavern...perfect lunch for New Year's Day!

2. Begins With G - A pretty geranium in my mother-in-law's garden.

3. My Town - My town hall with its pretty Christmas lights that change colour.

4. Word To Live By - It's on my t-shirt and it's all you need...'LOVE' that is, you don't need my t-shirt!

5. Found - Yesterday I finally found the shipwreck at Caloundra that I've been dying to photograph for ages!

6. Happens Everyday - The sun comes up and this morning it was behind some clouds. It's supposed to heat up to 35° today. Not looking forward to that but it's cooler than it has been!

7. Upside Down - The only place I could hang Little Puppy was from his tail...sorry Little Puppy!!

8. Lucky Number - I've never really had a lucky number. But our wedding was on a Friday...the 13th (over 11 years ago). Some people were a little surprised, but we've always said it was our lucky day. And so far, so good!

9. Natural - The natural beauty of my six year old daughter. But of course, I'm very biased!

10. Manmade - Packaged by Kaboodle and man (and woman) made...or put my husband and me! Our kitchen, which is still not finished!

11. Looking Down - Looking back down the track we just walked up to get to the top of Mount Coolum this morning!

12. Colourful - Some of my colourful yarn stash! Now...what to do with it...? 

13. Makes Me Smile - My Miss 6 just learnt to do somersaults in the pool. That makes me smile. Here she is mid roll! 

14. 3 Things - I made these 3 things. Now I just have to make 6 more and I'll have myself a new cushion cover!

15. Black + White - Three black + white cows hanging out on my piano. Hey, I could have used this photo yesterday!

16. Sun - The morning sun streaming into our front garden.

17. Tiny - My Miss 6's Grandma gave her a tiny cupcake necklace for Christmas. Isn't it the sweetest thing?

18. Happy Place - My happy place is our front patio in the cool shade of the afternoon...sitting with my husband, overlooking our town, and sipping a glass of something nice.

19. Breakfast - Mine is cooking. What are you having?

20. To Do List - Mine is online...and they're all usually overdue! Yes, I am a serious procrastinator!!

21. Blue - This was fun! I felt like a Bowerbird this morning. How many blue things can you see?

22. Nice! Yesterday afternoon I was enjoying dusk after a 39°C day....Nice! Why do I have my Christmas lights on? Because I can! 

23. Bedtime - One of our favourite bedtime stories.

24. Your Space - Your space? My space? I had a little tiff with my husband a couple of days ago when he decided to rearrange the pantry and kitchen shelves. (He is on holidays!) But as he has been doing most of the cooking lately, I need to start thinking of it as OUR space! I'm not good at sharing. :-/

25. A Taste of Summer - It's got to be prawns! My husband cooked these...yes the one that is taking over 'MY' kitchen. 

26. Fun Stuff! Jumping back to this time last year...I saw this guy! Soooo much fun!!

27. Something I Bought - This wasn't an easy prompt for me because I am not a shopper! All I buy are groceries and I'm sure you don't want to see those. The last time I bought something for myself was September while we were on holidays at the Gold little green bag. It's not a fancy brand, I'm not into labels. But I love it because it has a pocket for everything and I wear it every day.

28. Dinner - My Miss 6 has been asking me to cook this for dinner ever since I got the book for my birthday back in October! I've come to the decision that I don't have cook books for the recipes...I just want to look at the pretty pictures. I'm starting to think that the only way this will be cooked in my kitchen is if Jamie Oliver comes over and cooks it for me...and Miss 6!

29. Window - I love old church windows!

30. Best Invention Ever - Reading glasses! Without them I wouldn't be able to read, sew, knit, crochet, play the piano, edit photos or Facebook!! I'd be totally lost.

31. Polka Dot - Just a few of the polka dot aprons that I have made. Does this make me a little dotty?!


  1. Have you really been participating without missing a day for a thousand and one years? ;-)

    1. Oh my Lord!! That was a doozy of a typo! LOL At least I know someone is reading. Thanks for pointing it out Mark...all fixed now. :)
