Photo of the Day: Something I’m Listening To

Photo of the Day: Day 29 | What I'm Listening To #febphotoaday, Uploaded with Snapbucket

Today’s photo of the day was actually a little hard for me.


I’m not a big music person.

Don’t get me wrong, I like music.  I like to listen to music in my car. I like to sing along.

However, I really only like to listen to it in the car.

I don’t like to have music on in the house during the day.

I don’t remember always being like this, it kinda getting worse as I get older.

My daughter and husband love to listen to music.

They always have all the newest CD’s to listen to and they like to turn it up loud.

Very loud!

They love when I’m not in the car with them and they can crank the stereo as loud as they want.

I’m not sure how they hear themselves think.

I did recently stumble across this CD.

It’s Wildflower by Lauren Alaina.

It’s country and I really like to listen to country music.

Which seems strange coming from a girl who grew up listening to Metallica and AC/DC.

We won’t go there!

It’s a really good album and I’ve been listening to it in my car. Only.

I know, it’s weird.

If your a country fan and haven’t checked out the Lauren Alaina CD, check it out.  I think you’ll like it.


January Photo of the Day Challenge

Last January I started a 365-day photo challenge.

I did really good up until about February then I started slacking off a little bit.  I eventually stopped all together because I was so far behind and knew I would never “catch up”.

I love the idea of taking a picture everyday and sharing it.

This year, I decided that I would just take it a month at a time.  Oh and I’m following the ideas from Fat Mum Slim.

She put together this great list of all the photos to take for the month of January.

Lots of people are doing it using a great iPhone app called Instagram.  I no longer have an iPhone so I am using my Flickr account to take photos and share that way.  I will be posting them to my Facebook, Twitter and Flickr accounts.

I will also be posting to this here blog, but it may be several at a time.  Like today.

I started on Day 5:  Something You Wore

I haven’t worked outside the house in 14 years so my daily attire is all about comfort.

Day 6: Something that Makes You Smile

I had been to the eye doctor on this day and after I went just down the road to the Goodwill store.  I was looking for 1 lamp for my family room but instead walked away with 2 brand new lamps for $7 each.  They also came with the shade.  That definitely makes me smile.

Day 7: Favorite

Our favorite Saturday lunch spot is our local chicken place.

Day 8: Your Sky.

We got a pretty good rain on Sunday.  This is how our sky looked after the storms moved through.  You can see the sun coming out behind the storm clouds.  We’ve had very crazy weather for January.

Day 9: Your Routine

Part of my morning routine is coming to my favorite place in the house, my office, and getting myself organized for the day.

I think this is going to be a very fun challenge and should be attainable broken into months.

If you’re not already, be sure to follow along on Facebook, Twitter and also on Flickr.
