Photo Challenge for December

I may be crazy for even comtemplating do this, but I'm going to give it a try. Amazing Daughter has challenged me to take a picture every day for the month of December. Actually, I think there is some kind of a photo challenge for the entire year, but let's not kid ourselves. I know THAT will never happen.

I'm not the greatest photographer, but I enjoy taking pictures. My daughter, Jennee, on the other hand, has an "eye" for photography that makes me jealous. I always go for the big picture, while she focuses on the up-close shots. We have a joke that she takes a picture first, then I can copy the shot to take my picture. 

I may not post everyday, but I'm going to try to take a picture every day, and eventually post it. 

So without further ado, here is the first installment:

December 1: Introduce myself, and view of the day
I'm terrible at introductions. This is me, giving Hubby a helping hand on his current job. He's had some fun jobs lately, and this one is no exception. When I'm not working inside at the library, I'm bundled up trying not to freeze to death and working outside. I have my supply of sweatshirts, and jackets, and as Hubby works and starts to sweat and shed his coats, I grab them and put them on on top of everything else I'm wearing. I'm the "holder" and the "go-fer".

Views of the day:

While helping Hubby, I had to go inside the barn, climb up the stairs and hand the drills to him out through that big opening. While I was up there, I noticed how cool the inside of the barn was. The next time I had to go back up there, I took my camera with me. I also saw what I assumed to be a pigeon egg lying in the middle of the barn floor.

December 2: Favorite holiday movie and "elf"
I always have a hard time with "favorite". As soon as I declare something to be favorite, the unchosen thing jumps up and says "what about me?" So here is a list of Christmas movies I never get tired of watching. One that I don't have on dvd but is on my Christmas list is "Christmas in Connecticut" with Barbara Stanwyck and Dennis Morgan. I love that movie! 

And this is my little elf kitty. She eventually forgave me for this humiliating experience.

Until next time,


  1. Christmas in Connecticut is one of my favorite movies too. I love the shape of that barn. So interesting. Good luck with your picture-a-day challenge. Can't wait to see what you come up with. Our weather is beautifully warm today, hoping it'll come up through Ohio, just for you.

  2. Waow! That's quite a challenge you've taken on Darlene. It will be interesting to see how you get on. Lovely to see you over at my place today. I've missed you!

  3. What, no FAMILY MAN with Nicholas Cage? We watch it every year. : )

  4. For someone who says she's no good at photography you've got some great shots there, Darlene. I too love the one looking out of the barn window.

  5. That barn looks so cool.

    I just realized that I'm not sure I've ever been inside a real barn in my entire life.
