I taught myself to crochet flowers.  Great fun.

 {this moment} - A Friday ritual started by Soulemama. A single photo - no words - capturing a moment from the week. A simple, special, extraordinary moment. A moment I want to pause, savour and remember.

30 January 2012

I have actually been managing to take at least a photo a day
it's been enlightening and is really allowing me to think about our daily life in a way i haven't before.
30th January {king winter}
we got snow, just flurries it didn't settle.
n did a lot of pointing about it.
e wanted it to stay
we ate bread and butter pudding made with the last of the mincemeat in it and soup

the photos aren't necessarily 'good' in a technical sense or representative of the whole mood for the day they are literally a snapshot but they say something about how our life goes on

I decided to do as Grace is doing and add a few words to most photos in Flickr to add something of the feel of the day

if I can keep going I am going to print them as a book at the end of the year as a record or our days together here in our tiny house

daily 2012

I've decided to try and take at least a photo a day for the whole of 2012 apart from the first few days when I hadn't thought about doing it yet!! I've seen it done and I think it would be a lovely record of our daily life. Not sure yet exactly what format I will organise it in but for the moment I have them as a set on Flickr called daily 2012.

My word for 2012 will be kindness
to myself
to others
to the world

and so no apologies for my absence..... for I have been here in my real life - the one of runny noses, crumbs on the floor, sticky fingers and dishes to stack. That is enough for now...... I will be kind to myself.

There have been many posts written in my head - composed whilst creaking back and forth on the bedroom floorboards holding a warm bundle, or pushing a buggy to pick up biggest one.

Maybe this year will allow time for this space or not - we shall see.

The word for the year is becoming an interesting tradition for me - there was much JOY last year and having the word there in my head and heart helped me to see it.
