Obviously I don't have the attention span for a month long daily project. I've been sick with strep and am just feeling better. Since today's picture was kitchen, I thought I would post the kitchen of the house we are in the process of buying. Today I have been trying to decide what to do about this kitchen. I am still not sure.

Today's Photo: Bird
D and I went to take a picture of the geese and the goslings. These roam all over our apartment complex. You have to be careful, because if they feel the babies are threatened they will run at you and hiss. I know, I was chased by some before last summer when I would go running in the morning. We got this pictures just before they started hissing at us and D ran away scared.
That leads me to the red-winged black bird
Last year I was attacked by a bird at the same spot 3 different times when I went running in the morning. I am pretty sure it was a red-winged blackbird. I can't be completely sure since it was always from behind and as soon as I felt claws and wings on my neck I ran away, fast. Needless to say, I started taking a new running route. However, since last summer birds had made me very jumpy.

I had a hair appointment today. Whenever I need a hair cut, I always make the first appointment of the day, 9am. That way there is never anyone else there and D can run around and not bother anyone and he can play in the chairs all he wants. My hair stylist is so good with him and he always get candy. After, we always get a treat, walk around the mall, and play on the playground at the mall. Hair appointments are now fun for D. (OK, maybe not the actual appointment, but the traditions that go along with it)

OK, so this picture wasn't taken today and it's not really a skyline by definition, but when I thought of skyline I thought of this picture. It's it the view near the town we are moving to this summer. It looks like fall with the reds and such, but it is spring. It is beautiful there.

A friend of mine recently did a photo a day challenge and posted them on Facebook. I actually looked forward to seeing the pictures. I thought it was fun, so I thought I would give it a try. I found a fun photo a day in May challenge at Fat Mum Slim. You can read how to play here.
I am not doing this because I am a great photographer, or even aspire to be. As a matter of face, I use a point and shoot camera or iPhone. I don't even own a fancy shmancy camera. I want to do it because I like the idea of taking a better look at the world around me and this is a great way to do it.

Well, we put in a offer on a home and they accepted. It is a 1950 ranch, a bit of a fixer upper. Small, but good for us. 2 bed/1 Bath with a basement we could finish one day. I go through the cycles of way excited, to terrified, to borderline depressed, back to thrilled. I really am happy, but overwhelmed. I have always wanted to be a DIYer, but never thought I could do things like that. It doesn't help that my husband would rather pay someone to do something that do it himself as far as house repairs are concerned. After listing all the things I would eventually want to do to this house, our bank account is going to force us to become DIYers. Any of you DIYers? What are the easier/hardest things you have done? I'll keep you posted how it goes. Here are some pictures.
