Saturday Hodge-podge

PROJECT 365: A PHOTO A DAY



August 5-11






Sunday, August 5, 2007 - my reward for sticking with the exercise plan all week - a happy meal! And Celeste claimed the toy right away.
Monday, August 6, 2007 - my new student. So far he's a very quiet and easy going child.
Tuesday, August 7, 2007 - Frank's last day of preschool. He's a full-time kindergartener now.
Wednesday, August 8, 2007 - ice cream for afternoon snack!
Thursday, August 9, 2007 - the dragon kite hanging from the ceiling at the dojo.
Friday, August 10, 2007 - Hubby "cooked" supper.
Saturday, August 11, 2007 - roadside morning glory I saw when I went for my walk this morning.

This week's theme: ROW

This is the first row that came to mind this morning when I realized I hadn't even thought of this week's theme all week.



Must have been the omelet I made myself for breakfast this morning.


Well, with the help of Joe's Goals, I'm tracking my habits. Those insane walks around the neighborhood? Still at it! Sunday, Monday, Wednesday, and Friday nights after supper we head out and make a loop around town. We skip Tuesday/Thursday because we go to karate those nights, and Saturday to give ourselves a day of rest. We skipped it last night because it was still ridiculously hot and humid at 8 p.m., but I got myself up early this morning and walked (and even jogged a bit) the loop. Go me!

As for the shiny sink, 5 days out of 7 is not too shabby! I'm still having trouble with the unloading of the dishwasher part. That's why I ended up with 2 days of dishes in the sink.

As for this week's new goal, I'm going to set aside 15 minutes (at least) every morning for prayer and scripture reading. I think that will really help me to go into my days with a more positive outlook. I'm not a negative person, but I do have a tendency toward pessimism.

Great job on your habits so far. Starting out your day in scripture is great. I need to work on that one too. Great photos. Good luck this week!

Walking around the neighborhood at night sounds like a GREAT habit! Once we get into our new neighborhood I think I might borrow that habit from ya! Hope you have a great and SMART week!

Great job! We have a dog that goes stir crazy without an evening walk. I actually look forward to getting out of the house now....I just wish I didn't have to cover myself in mosquito repellant every night! It's miserably hot in August here, but soon it will cool down...

good luck...I think taking time for yourself to read scripture first thing in the morning is the right way to start the day.......have a great week.

The Word is always a great place to start your day.

I can't remember for sure but think you are the third one who used eggs for this theme photo. . . each in a different way! Eggs didn't even occur to me. . . of course after you put yours up, you usually think of others you could have used. It has been fun to get to the majority of sites this time -- only a couple would not open for me. Been a long job and that's why I am so late posting on yours.

Come and see mine -- I ahve 4 different ones.
