January 2017 – week 1

Welcome back & Happy New Year!

This year marks the fifth year that I will be taking a photo every day. In past years, I have followed various lists of prompts, and had a lot of fun doing so. This year I am going to try something different … I am just going to post a photo every day. I hope you enjoy this year’s journey!

The weather here has been varied. Rain early in the week, a few days with snow squalls; and ending on a chilly note! (-15 C / 4 F)

On to the photos:

January 1 – winter view from the backyard – I took this on one of the last few days of 2016. It is the farmer’s field behind my house. I love watching the changes through all the seasons; stay tuned, you may see this view again…

January 2 – knitting; I have picked up my knitting needles again after a long break. All it took was seeing this very pretty yarn in the shop; and seeing a lovely shawl on a friend’s blog (Pumpkin Sunrise – go check her out – I am in awe of her knitting skills). She was kind enough to direct me to the pattern (Citron on Ravelry). It is only the beginning, but coming along nicely; after several starts I confess.

January 3 – sometimes I feel that I’m being watched (my pal, Mr Sock Monkey is keeping an eye on me)

January 4 – repurpose – this crystal punch bowl was not being used. I offered it to several people, however no one has a use for it, but it’s too pretty to throw away. So I set it in a corner of my living room, filled it with Christmas lights. It now fills a dark corner with a soft, magical glow!

January 5 – snowflakes – who says you can’t have snowflakes indoors? I only bring this quilt out during the holidays and the first few months of the year. This year it brightened up the guest room for our holiday company.

January 6 – it snowed – another shot taken during the holiday break after a pretty snowfall.

January 7 – snow patterns – isn’t it pretty what the wind and snow can produce?

As always, thank you for visiting. Feel free to join in on Instagram, #ciuan365 or #nothingisordinary or just follow me @BasildonKitchens.

Until next time, Connie 🙂


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

  1. It was great to catch up with your first week of 2017. All that snow! I wouldn’t like that one bit – minus 15, is that for real! Loving your photos, especially the glass bowl with lights.
