August Photo-A-Day


We all know I'm exceptional at intentions, but lacking in the follow-through most of the time.

This is half of the reason that our back-yard landscaping has never gotten completed (or started).  (The other half of the reason is because of the dog....but you've heard that story a hundred times...)

Had it not been for the fact that I moved Ty out of his bedroom while I re-did it...I'd probably still be dragging myself in there to finish it up.  (I do still have the unresolved issue of figuring out what I want to do for seating/storage at the foot of his bed, too).

Anyway.  The point is, I typically don't finish things unless I have to.

But not this time (I tell myself).

I've toyed with the idea of a month-long-commitment for years.  Literally.  I planned to do NoJoMo (November Journaling Month) in 2006 and 2007 and 2008....but the time 2009 came around I gave up on ever actually doing it.

Just last week I came across a Drawing Challenge that I toyed with...but since I can't draw, I never got past the intrigue stage of that idea.

But today, I'm committing.

Not to the drawing.  Like I said, I can't draw....though it might be a good way to get better at least.

But I'm committing to a Photo-A-Day challenge for August (since my coworker took such pleasure this afternoon in reminding me that tomorrow is the first of the month). 

Here's the schedule:  (from The Idea Room)


I'll be sharing mine on Facebook, Twitter and my blog via Instagram.

If you decide to join along, be sure to use the #photoadayaug hastag! 

If I fall down on the job, feel free to heckle, pester or harass me to catch up!
