Ten on Ten: May 2011


Well, I kinda accomplished this month's Ten on Ten. I did take photos over the course of several hours, just not the ten that this effort was intended to document. Weekdays are hard because there's only so many ways to make photos of your office interesting. Especially without looking like a crazy person climbing on chairs. Which I'm prone to do when taking pictures. All that to say my photos for this month are from the few hours right after work.


As soon as I got home (and sent Mark off to pick up a Craigslist find) Charlotte and I headed out to our backyard. Beautiful, right? No thanks to me. This is all the handiwork of the former owner. I'm just working to identify what's a plant and what's a weed so I can pull the right stuff.


Charlotte helped water (using the rain barrels that the old owner graciously left behind) and showed me where the moon was. Yup, it was pretty easy to see, even at just 6pm.


We ran inside so I could start working on dinner. Unstuffed cabbage. Pretend that you don't notice how uneven my chopping is.


Charlotte snacked on an ice cream cone while I worked on dinner. What? You don't give dessert before dinner? Well that's how we roll around here sometimes. Although I will say that's before I realized what she did to Gramma's doll (chapstick).


Back outside we went to do some playing while dinner was cooking. I drew the pink heart. Charlotte drew the blue one. In case you were wondering.


I snagged a quick picture of the super low ground cover that we have in a few areas. I love this stuff! Anyone know what it is? Then I handed over the camera to Charlotte (and kept very close by in case she started to drop it) so she could take a few shots. Here's her best one:

This is my first time participating and it happened to be a day I'm not working my part-time job. I was wondering how everyone managed to take 10 photos while working.

Your daughter did a nice job! She must be following in your footsteps.

Thank you for your blog visit and have a great day!

I'm so impressed...Charlotte took a great pic!

I swear I just can't remember 10 on 10. I thought about it earlier this week and then poof it's gone!

Your yard is beautiful! I've been begging my hubby to make me a rain barrel. Love your daughter's picture.

I think her drawing resembles a heart. At least it's roundish... Charlotte is a great photographer. Her and Elijah could set up their own studio in a couple years, at the rate their going. ;-)

Sounds like a very nice evening. TFS.
