December Ten on Ten

Within five minutes of waking up today, I was having a bad day.  I was actually grateful that today was Ten on Ten day.  It forced me to find beautiful things through-out the day.

It may be foggy, but it’s still beautiful where I live.

A little dark and gloomy, but still beautiful.

What is beautiful about stacks of paper? 1. They kept me busy for most of the morning and 2. I'm done with them!

Still foggy, but I love the view from the break room at work.

Ten on Ten – Stony Brook, NY

I’m going to do my Ten on Ten a little different today.

The concept is to take a photo every hour for 10 consecutive hours on the 10th day of the month.  I am normally very strict with myself with my Ten on Ten pictures.  I take one picture every hour and use it to tell a story of my day.

This month I thought I would try something new.  I took several pictures every hour and am posting my top Ten favorites from the day.

Enjoy!

10 on 10 – June 2014 – Asheville, NC

I’m terrible at remembering to do 10 on 10 posts!  This is my second one in over a year! I’m hoping to get better at remembering to do them, but for now, here is my 10 0n 10 in Asheville, NC at the home I am housesitting for.

Enjoy!

I had plans to go out exploring and thrift store shopping today, but one thing after another happened this morning  and I finally decided to make it a quiet day at home.  Here is my day in 10 pictures over 10 hours.

8:50 a.m. – Breakfast

9:50 am – This was supposed to be a picture of my workspace for the day, but the picture was blurry and I didn’t like it.  Instead I give you,  the sneaky cat that I found in the house that doesn’t live here.  I love the look he is giving me, like “how DARE you chase me out of your house!”

Asheville 039

10:50 a.m. – Enjoying an ice cold Diet Pepsi in my Dad Horse Experience coozie

Asheville 021

11:50 a.m. – Picking out what jewelry to wear.  This resulted in me locking my keys in the van.  I went out to the van to get a necklace and after I had chosen which one I wanted I scooped up all the rest and put them back in the box, along with the van key.  Also, the clasp broke on the necklace I wanted to wear.  Not my day for jewelry.

12:50 p.m. Lounging Kitties

Ten on Ten April

Last month as I was poking around other blogs and looking for something fun to incorporate into our blog I found the Ten on Ten Photo Project.  It’s simple; on the tenth of each month you take a photo an hour for ten consecutive hours.  Simple, but fun!

Today as I was driving to work I realized that it was the 10th and I should be taking my 10 pictures.  I was really disappointed at first because I didn’t bring my camera to work with me.  But then I thought, who cares, and decided to use my cell phone camera.  I think this will be a fun little project that will show how much my days differ from life in an office, to life at home, to life on the road.  I’m really curious as to what all the pictures will be when I look at them a year from now.

So enjoy ten hours of my life on Wednesday April 10th:
