Painting Pictures In The Sky

Monday, March 28, 2011

I always forget how close to the water Edinburgh is - I spent all my time in the city centre so I don't think of it but there are so many beaches and rivers nearby I'm probably never more than a couple of miles away from one.   We did an impromptu trip down to Musselburgh earlier in the week with the dogs, I've not been in ages and it was a good excuse to get rid of all our extra bread by feeding it to the birds. The dogs were a bit unsure about the geese and swans at first but they got over it pretty quickly.








I love feeding birds, there is just something so cathartic about it.

I'm thinking about taking part in the Day Zero Project where you list 101 things you want to do in the next 1001 days. It seems like such a nice idea, and without the morbidity of a 'To Do Before I Die' list. Has anyone taken part in anything like this? Any advice? I'm thinking of coming up with my list and then starting on April 6th (a week on Wednesday) which would mean I would be ending on the 1st of January 2014. I'd love someone to do it with, so if you are interested in it leave me a comment :)
