"make it your ambition to lead a quiet life, to mind your own business and work with your hands, just as we told you,
so that your daily life may win the respect of outsiders and so that you will not be dependent on anybody."

365 :: spurred :: week 1

i made it through week one
of the photo a day project i'm doing this year!
i almost forgot a couple of days...
i bet you can tell which ones,
because the pictures are grainy
from being taken at night. =p

day 1: light
this is the last bit of light from the first day of the year.
i took this while riding home from my inlaws'.
it's a couple minutes from my house.

day 2: tall
tall...my preferred size at starbucks.

day 3: switch
i'm really excited to make the switch
to raw goat's milk as soon as our goats
throw (give birth) in the next couple of months.
i don't even care if i don't like it at first...
especially since watching food, inc.
we will also be raising our own chickens
in the spring.
no more chlorine dipped chicken for us.

day 4: craft
this is my craft room.
it isn't much to look at now,
but it will be.
in the last house, i had an overcrowded
closet i stuffed my junk into,
so i'm really thankful to
have a dedicated space here.

day 5: leftover
the holidays have come and gone,
but they forgot to take my extra 7-10 lbs
with them. i'm trying to be motivated
to do something about it,
but chocolate keeps calling my name...
so i answer.

day 6: up
things are looking up around here.
when we moved in, our well was almost dry.
we've had an abundance of rain since, 
and the only things lacking are an oven
and plumbing fixes so that i can do laundry here.
we are so blessed in that our church family
volunteered to come over this afternoon to
make sure those things get fixed for us.
we are so humbled and thankful.

day 7: clear
clear skies and blushing trees
on a beautiful january morning.
this "winter" has been so mild...and i love it.
if i didn't love farm life and our extended family 
so much, i would beg jason to move to somewhere
like florida, just for the year around warm temperatures.
but that's ok...we're having an awesome winter here so far!

here are next week's prompts:
day 8: broken
day 9: lines
day 10: fluffy
day 11: black
day 12: bow
day 13: mug shot
day 14: dining

thanks for reading.
have a wonderful weekend!
