Photo A Day - May

Chantelle from the blog Fat Mum Slim is hosting a Photo a Day for the month of May.  I ran across her blog last week and thought that the idea of capturing something from my life everyday for a month would be fun.  It would even act as sort of a diary.  Here are the guidelines taken from Chantelle's blog:

Each day you look at the list and there will be a prompt that corresponds with the date of the month. For example day one is peace, so for day one you'll take a photo of something around the peace {a peace sign, something that's peaceful in your life, you doing a peace sign with your hands etc}. You then share the photo on Instagram, Twitter, Facebook, your blog, PinterestFlickr or where ever you want to share it.

It's a fun way to be creative every day and it's so much to be part of. Anyone can play {even if you haven't played before}.

Here's how to share your photo:

INSTAGRAM: Upload your photo to Instagram, add a sweet filter and put #photoadayMay in the caption so others can see your photos {share to Twitter, FacebookTumblrFlickr etc from Instagram if you like}

TWITTER: Upload your photo to Instagram, add some words to describe it and use the hashtag #photoadayMay so others can see your photos

FACEBOOK: Create an album titled something like, Photo a Day May, and make the album public, then upload your photos. It's a good idea to upload the list too so you can refer to it and others can see what you're doing. You can also share your photos on my Fat Mum Slim Facebook page. {Unfortunately I don't think people can tag my page in their photos.Facebook is being glitchy}.

PINTEREST: Upload your photos to a board, and use the hashtag#photoadayMay so that others can search for them.

BLOGS & TUMBLR: Upload your photos to your blog or Tumblr and share with the world.

FLICKR: Share your photos in the Photo a day group.

I will just be sharing my photos on this blog, mainly because I don't know how to download pictures to some of the sites!  Yes, it's true....I am somewhat computer illiterate!  LOL!

Here are the 1st 8 days of May photos:

May 1st - Peace (I was at the Lake)

These are two of my dogs, Sam and Winston.  They love a couch...any couch, anywhere!  When I took this picture, they were asleep and as soon as I started to take their picture, they both woke up.  Well...they still did look peaceful!

May 2nd - Skyline (At the Lake)

This photo doesn't do the sunset justice.  It was a beautiful evening at the lake!

May 3rd - Something you wore today (Lake)

I LOVE my Berkinstocks!  Love, love, love them!  I have them on everyday, even in the winter.  But, I DON'T wear them out in public...much!  Notice the pretty nail polish!  My two daughters and I had a pedicure before Daughter #1's wedding.  One of the wedding colors was purple, so I had my toe nails painted....PURPLE!  I also have on my capris, which I also love!

May 4th - Fun!  (Still at the lake)

Whether I am at the lake or at home, my fun place is my sewing room.  This is the loft at the lake that is ALL mine!  Don't I have the most fantastic view?  Excuse the mess...I was in the middle of a project.

May 5th - Bird  (lake....)

This one was hard.  Even though is was a beautiful day out that day, I could not find one bird in the sky.  I didn't even hear any birds chirping!  So, I found this hand carved duck on a shelf!  Perfect!!

May 6th - You (Yes, you guessed it...I am still at the lake)

This photo was taken many, many years ago at Silver Dollar City.  We would go there every summer when we vacationed at the lake.  This photo was taken outside with lots and lots of people watching us!!  I kept saying to my family...."Don't smile, don't smile!"  We all did a great job!  We even look mad.  This photo has always made me laugh.  For photo day 6, I took a picture of the picture!  And yes, I am the lady with the rolling pin!

May 7th - Someone that inspires you  (Home!!)
Me, Daughter #1 (the bride), Daughter #2 (pregnant with grandchild #2), and granddaughter #1
I cheated on this one.  This assignment had me stumped.  There are a lot of people who inspire me, but they are not around for me to take their picture(s).  So, I stole this from a few weeks ago, because no one inspires me more than my family.  Here I am with my two daughters and my granddaughter.  They inspire me everyday!  I love my family!!

May 8th - A smell you adore (Today at home!)

Aren't these beautiful.  These roses are from my front yard!  We have several bushes just like this and it smells heavenly outside!

Stay tuned for more photos of the month from my home, daughter #2's home, my sister's home, and my in-law's home.  May is a busy, busy month with lots of traveling!
