365 Project: Week 3

Sunday, January 20, 2013

Day 13: Me and Scallywag were out visiting friends and got a tiny bit of snow, I wasn't sure we were going to get any more so I took this photo while we were out for a walk.

Day 14: I kind of cheated with this one, I didn't have my camera on me so I just snapped it with my iPhone instead. I considered not including them, but realistically I don't think I can manage my whole year dragging round my SLR, so I'm gonna let it slide.

Day 15: Another iPhone photo. I've always loved photos of the clouds, and this one taken during sunset has the most lovely colours.

Day 16: The only time I took any photos was when I was trying to do a self-portrait for a post, so you've already seen this one.

Day 17: Walking through Princes St Gardens so that we could avoid taking the dogs through the crowds. This pitiful amount of snow was the only sign in the city of things to come.

Day 18: Even dogs do awkward blinking photos. Mania's first experience of snow.

Day 19: Having fun in the park with the dogs, perfect day of snow and sunshine.

And a quick run down of my other resolutions. 

Conscientious Consumer: I've actually managed another week of not doing a lot of unnecessary shopping. I bought a couple of interesting looking second hand books and was given a pair of second hand wellies (which have come in really useful). We've not been quite so good with our food shopping (trips to Lidl and Scotmid) but we've been doing what we can. 

Create More: I've not got anything tangible to show for my effort yet, but I have been practising setting up my sewing machine and doing some basic stitches. I've also found a lovely material and hopefully in the coming week I can turn it into a bag, or pillow case, or something equally simple to start myself off. 

Keep A Journal: Already a failure. I haven't managed any writing other than blogging and other boring bits and bobs. To be honest I might just give up on it. I'll give myself to the end of the month. 

Be A Better Blogger: I've managed to do quite a lot of blog reading this week, but not as much commenting as I would like. I was really keen to catch up on what everyone has been up to though. I also managed to get up the guts to post something really personal to me, and I'm really proud of that. 

I can't believe we are three weeks into January already, this year is going so quickly! How are your resolutions going? Let me know in the comments or tell me if you are doing your own set of update posts.

  1. iPhone photos totally count - they're lovely shots and photography's more about being able to spot a great shot than the camera you use to capture it.

  2. I love the top photo, the speckles of snow on your sweet pooch. So lovely.
    I have the same problem with journal writing; my new journal is absolutely empty :(
    good luck with all your resolutions.

  3. Haha well I'd HAVE to say that iphone photos count, since that's the only tool I am using for my 365 project!! I love the shots you've taken this past week, especially the sunset ones.  So beautiful!
    I've been keeping up pretty well with my goals, actually! Come to think of it, I have managed to cross a few things off the list entirely, I ought to do a little goal update post this week.  Good on you for the conscientious consumer goal, that's something I've been trying to get better at, myself.


  4. love the close up of your eyes and bangs!
