November – Photo-a-Day Recap

November is over and all thoughts are now on the upcoming holiday season – there will be lots of parties, pot-lucks and of course, Christmas Day!

Recently I stumbled upon an interesting blog by Chantelle – Fat Mum Slim!  She shares a list of photo prompts and those individuals interested can share their photos each day on Instagram, Twitter, Facebook, Pinterest, Blogs, Tumblr, Flickr or where ever you like.

I like to follow along – it makes you think about the photos you take.  I think it also helps improve your photography.  I am also getting to know my iPhone better and some of the cool ‘apps’ available.  I have learned so much in the past month.  So, without further delay, here are my photos for the month of November….

1.  something beginning with ‘c’

My name begins with C – this was a gift from my old boss when I resigned to move to the country – I love it (what girl wouldn’t like a gift from Tiffany’s)

Nov 1 - something beginning with 'c' #fmsphotoaday

2.  colour

Love the colours here – this is soft and very light-weight.  I am making a scarf/shawl with this…as it turned out, it was a bigger challenge than I first anticipated, but it is coming along.

Nov 2 - color (soon to be my new scarf) #fmsphotoaday

3.  breakfast

Not my usual breakfast, but my sweet hubby brought home some fresh raisin bread – that with my morning coffee was wonderful.

Nov 3 - "breakfast" #fmsphotoaday

4.  tv

I find taking pictures of TV’s very boring so I enlisted the aid of my friend, Mr. Sock Monkey.  He was happy to oblige.

Nov 4 - prompt is TV; my favorite helper has taken the remote hostage! #fmsphotoaday

5.  5 o’clock:  take a photo of whatever you are doing at 5am or 5pm

I was home that day and doing what I like to do best – quilting.  This ended up being pillow cases for my sofa cushions.  Very Christmasy!

Nov 5 - 5 o'clock - I'm quilting #fmsphotoaday

6.  a favourite thing

I love my morning coffee!

I love to read in the evening before bed…I read every day!  Sometimes for 5 minutes; sometimes for hours…

Remembrance Day is coming up – wearing a poppy is a small way to show respect and remember those that fought and died for our way of life.

This vintage tractor sits on a front lawn in the town of Bloomfield – it is covered in Christmas lights.  It is so cute – much cuter live than this sad photo, but you do get the idea.

I am living my dream life in the country! I love photography, travelling, cooking, baking and I even try my hand at quilting.
