Jinx’s bountiful treasure!
(why, yes, I did actually take a photo of Jinx before untangling him from the vines. I am a wonderful doggy mummy!)
I’m starting to wonder if 2012 actually is the end of the world and the way it’s going to end is that time just runs out. The very few blog posts I have written this year all start the same way – I HAVE NO TIME! Once in a while I long for the days of my bookstore jobs – the university one, where I was able to complete all my work (awesomely, I might add, because I was VERY good at my job and I loved it) and then have some time to blog and read my friends’ blogs and comment on them. I also miss the retail bookstore job where my schedule was more random and left me with time on my hands to do as I pleased (which ended up being blogging).
I am three days into the March Photo A Day challenge, hosted by Fat Mum Slim, but I wanted to post the second half of February on here. I actually managed to take a photo a day and not miss one! Very proud of myself. How I lived without my iPhone for so long is a mystery to me. heh Here’s February 15 – 29 in photos for your viewing pleasure.
Finally starting new notebook at work.
My favourite song off one of my favourite albums.
And that’s it.
Never mind the fact that I seemed to have another 222 photos on my phone since the 18th day when I last imported my photos. I obviously take way more than a photo a day, but these ones are all specific to the challenge. I know many of you have either seen these through instagram, twitter or Facebook. But I like to have them all logged in one place to have a reminder of what I took and when. After all, this is a journal of sorts.
Maybe one day I’ll actually write something of interest on ye olde blogge. We can all dream, can’t we?
Have I told you lately how much I love my iPhone? I’m not about to divorce my husband over it (although his lack of iPhone does make him ever so slightly less sparkly in my eyes. Heh.) but I love this stupid piece of technology so much it’s not even funny. Heck, I hardly even use it as a PHONE if I was being honest. I think my most favourite app right now is Instagram (which I have mentioned a few times on here). I’ve been using this free app for over a year and I have enjoyed every second of it. It’s pretty much the sole way I take photos with my phone now. Last month I noticed a few people on IG posting photos for a January Photo a Day challenge. I only clued in towards the end of the month, so I didn’t participate, but I was more than excited to find out that the blogger who hosted the January challenge – FatMumSlim – was doing one again for February!
I present to you the first half of my February photos, based on this challenge. (photos link to the IG original with caption.)

There you have it. Must admit that having a theme for the day greatly increases my ability to provide a photo a day. I know I tried to do 365 days of photos a few years ago and it didn’t work out, but having the ease of a camera on my phone AND a theme for the day makes this so much easier.
If you have an iPhone, get yourself Instagram and join in the fun! Tag all your photos with #FebPhotoADay and see what others are doing. I’m no professional photographer but it doesn’t matter. Be creative! Have fun!
Other apps that I used to edit/tag the photos are PicFrame, Frametastic (to make collages) and Labelbox (to label them, duh!). These are also free (I rarely pay for apps unless I am 100% certain I will get my money’s worth!). It’s just a fun way to interact and get that creative need fulfilled.
I realize many of you may have already seen these on facebook or twitter and yes, this is a cop-out of a blog post… but Internet, I have been SO BUSY! I have no free time anymore! Ugh! So I wanted to post something. You’ll have to just accept this and hope that I can find time to entertain you with something more exciting soon.
