Project 365 ~ Week 1

Well....I finally decided last night, to join in on Project 365 over at my blog friend Sara's and I have to admit, that I'm a little scared because I know it's quite a commitment!  Now is probably the right time though, especially since I just finally got a new computer and shouldn't have any problems with this one.  Note to self:  N.e.v.e.r buy a reconditioned computer again!  It was a total waste of money and really has hindered me from being able to blog etc.  Thankfully, I'm almost finished transferring all of my pics to the new computer before it completely crashes...Yay! It's been a frustrating process the past couple of takes about 7 or 8 hours to transfer one folder of pictures off of the old computer....that tells you how slow it is and of course, it takes even longer when it shuts down and I have to start over. Arrrg! 

I'd like to apologize to all of my followers (if I have any left) for being MIA off and on for so long, I'm praying that I will be able to get back into the routine of blogging again and I think P 365 will help me to do just that!  I don't really know all the rules of P 365, so please forgive me, if I happen to break the rules. Hopefully, someone will clue me in, if I do it wrong! :)


I opened the sliding glass door to step outside and take this pic, but it was sooo cold that I just stayed in and took it with the door open. lol  Normally I would have taken more pics, but I was on my way out to lunch with my friend Elsie and wouldn't you know it.....I completely forgot to take a pic of the two of us and our meal.  We're both originally from Texas, so we thoroughly enjoyed our tamales, blackeyed peas, cabbage, collard greens and cornbread!  Mmmm, mmm good!  We both were blessed with double the good luck, as the tradition goes, because we both had black eyed peas and we both found a coffee bean hidden in our pieces of cake.  Woo hoo! 

And to finish off such a lovely day, I snapped a picture of my baby Sophie, with her bone!  Yes, I call her my baby and yes, my 21 yr old daughter makes fun of me and says, I've become one of those old ladies with the little dog that she talks to like it's a person.  Haha, yep that's me folks!  I do talk to her like she's a person and my excuse is, that I don't have any grandbabies yet, but least I don't dress her up in little outfits. lol  

Well, so far so good, I've just finished my first blog post for the new year and also for P 365, now let's hope I can keep this up!  Happy New Year everyone!  If you'd like to link up and join in on Project 365, just head on over to make music from your heart to the Lord and I know Sara will be excited!!!


  1. I'm happy to see you doing this. I know I'll enjoy your photos!

  2. Look at that view... just the colors of the greys are so beautiful!!!!

    And I have no kids of my own - so my dogs are TRULY my babies :)

  3. Welcome to P365.
    I did it all last year and it was super fun! Basically there are no rules, my philosophy is not to stress about it. The gaol is to take a picture every day, however most weeks I was happy with 5 out of 7 and some weeks it was just not happening. It is fun to get a glimpse into all of our bloggy pals lives and you do kinda feel like you get to know everyone in a bloggy sort of way!

    So welcome to P365, I look forward to getting to know you through your pictures!

    Happy New year!

  4. I hope you stick with this because you will feel so great in 364 more days if you do! :) (PLUS you'll see yourself grow as a photographer over the year!)

  5. Loved the photos. I can't wait to see more from you.

  6. I am SO EXCITED that you are joining us!!!! Robin is right, there are no rules except to enjoy it. If you miss a day, don't sweat it. all you have to do is to post your pictures on Sunday and link up at my place. I think you will enjoy documenting your life and meeting some new friends along the way!!

    ugh! to the computer issues!

  7. Welcome! 2010 was my first P365 year and it was so fun to go back and remember all the "small" moments, as well as the big.

    Loved the scene out your window. Just beautiful!

    I love the family pictures down your sidebar too. I'm not sure I'm brave enough to post my photos over the past 25-30 years. :)

    See you next week!

  8. =) Very pretty! I see you and I own the same camera too. Thanks for stopping by my blog!! I look forward to more pics.

  9. Wow your view is stunning! I baby talk to my dog & he even has his own blog, so there's lots of teasing at my house too.

    Hugs & love,
