Photo challenge day 6: Gray

It’s already day 6 of the First Thirty-one photo challenge! Head on over to Fourtuitous to find out more.

For today’s theme of gray, I have a photo with many different shades of gray, though perhaps not as many as 50. 😉 Sorry, that was a lame attempt at a joke and I haven’t even read 50 Shades of Gray (and I don’t particularly want to!)
Let’s just get on with the task in hand, shall we? See below for my photo entry:

Photo challenge day 5: Five

Today’s theme for the fifth day of the First Thirty-one Photo Challenge (for more info, see is “Five”. This delicious mixed berry smoothie recipe from Frugal Feeding has only five scrumptious ingredients and took me about five minutes to make!

A deliciously simple five-ingredient smoothie!

Photo challenge day 2: Branches

It’s day 2 of the First Thirty-One Photo Challenge! One photo for each day of January 2013. Go to Fourtuitous to find out more!

Today was hectic and it was dark before I had time to take the second picture for the photo challenge: a tangled web of branches, stripped bare of their leaves by the winter chill. Apologies for the bland, unexciting photo but it was the best I could do today!



Photo challenge day 1: Resolution

Happy New Year!

I have chosen to take part in a 31-day photo challenge which I discovered via the blog, Starting off 2013 with a photo every day sounds like a fun idea to me!

Day 1: Resolution.

My resolution for 2013 is to get outside and go places. I want to spend more time outside, exploring the world, and less time sitting behind the steering wheel of my car.

Reblog: First Thirty-One Photo Challenge

To kickstart my blogging year in 2013, I plan to participate in this photo challenge. It will be the first photo challenge I have done and I look forward to it! Because I don’t use Instagram, I will post each photo on here instead.
