I know I said it before, but I really need to get back into the habit of publishing my Fat Mum Slim photos on a daily basis. I feel like I’m starting to let things fall through the cracks and I’d really like to snap all 365 days this year. I’d have to double-check but I feel like month three is when I’ve started to fall off the photography wagon in the past. Only one more day until month two is in the books!
02.21 – Full
02.22 – Makes You Smile
My grandmother contracted some sort of bug, but after a couple of days she seems to be on the mend. The full glass of OJ was guzzled to try to keep any germs at bay. I definitely smiled when I came across this unused humidifier. With the furnace running full-steam all the time, and my often-lamented respiratory issues, finding this was a godsend, especially while I try to fight off a cold.
Of course, anything James Bond-related makes me smile. Caught the latest installment at the end of last month and LOVED it – definitely one of my top 5. Reelz is having a Bond marathon all month. Although I definitely take issue with some of their omissions, I probably pause on the channel at least once a day.
02.20 – Where You Stood
Three decades ago I used to stand (well, squat) on this little corner of the world and help my grandfather garden. Well, “help” in the way that only grandchildren can manage. I’m sure I ripped more fronds off the tops of beets and carrots than I ever successfully tugged from from the ground unscathed. I was a little better with picking green beans – to this day, I can snap beans like a champ. I can’t remember what else used to grow on this little plot – I’m sure there was corn and undoubtedly greens of some sort (mustard or collard). I just remember always eating all of my vegetables at my grandparents’ house when I was little, because to leave any behind was an insult to his garden and that was NOT permitted.

02.17 – In Your Hand
I got up at a decent hour and decided to spend some time reading in the sun room.
02.18 – Something You Don’t Like
I’m sure there’s a reason people need giant trucks, but they’re really a pain to see around when you’re trying to maneuver your way through a parking lot.
02.19 – I am…
Merriam-Webster defines a photographer as ‘one who practices photography; especially one who makes a business of taking photographs” While I most certainly don’t make any money through my hobby, it is one of my few passions and everyday I strive to get better (this particular photo aside – oy!). [Meanwhile, my grandmother is clearly an empty camera box hoarder]
I need to try to get back into the habit of blogging daily. This playing catch-up is a pain! Especially when I’m writing monster updates for my non-photo blog as well.
I discovered this trail winding through Possum Creek MetroPark. I wandered a little but will have to wait for spring to truly go exploring.
Ended up going on a mini-photowalk around the lake since I was already at the park. It was cloudy at first but by the time I left, most of the clouds had burned off.
The entrance to the shed in the backyard is locked up tight. I avoid going in there if at all possible. I shudder to think of the snakes and other wriggly critters sure to be unearthed with every move of a box. The property abuts a city park / community farmland (I think) so I’m fairly sure there are creatures who have moved in and made themselves at home.
For some reason I wasn’t particularly inspired by today’s prompt. It was a pretty lazy day so I mostly ended up looking around the house for something that would fit the bill and this is the best I could come up with – sad, but true. There’s a photo I took this weekend in Cincinnati that I would love to have used for the project, but I’m trying really hard to stick to the letter of the challenge and only officially use photos that were taken on the day of the prompt.
However, that doesn’t mean I can’t share my alternate photos here for your enjoyment.
