My Week in Review - Week 1

I didn't set out to do a Project 365, but I just might try it... I did the Fat Mum Slim PAD in December, but didn't always take a new photo, although most of the days were new.  When January came around, I thought, why not try to take a photo a day this year?  I'm giving myself permission for them to not always follow the PAD prompts, and to not always be anything more than a snapshot.  I'm also giving myself permission to miss some days.  I don't want to miss, but I'm not going to give it up just because I missed a day here and there.  I have a lot of things I want to do this year, and I have to give myself the grace to fail once in awhile.

I'm pretty happy with my submissions this week.  It was a short week and tomorrow starts back to the regular grind... and I've been feeling like poo for a few days now... so it might get harder to get a photo among all the other things I want to do, but I'll work hard at it.  If my friends with kids can do creative projects like this, surely I can carve out space in my day for things like this, as well.

January 1: The Sky
I was very ambitious this morning.  As soon as I got out of bed, I went outside in my pj's to take a photo.  It's not often that we get sunny skies in January around here, so these last few days have been lovely.

January 2: Something Yellow
 Bright colors are hard to come by in this neck of the woods at this time.  I was wondering what I would photograph for this prompt, when my parents picked me up to go to breakfast Friday morning and my dad was wearing his Steelers parka.  Yay for good fortune!  We took my grandparents out to the casino for their birthdays and you can't take photos in there, so this was the only photo I could get of the day.

January 3 - Me Today
This is right before I consumed the biggest piece of cheesecake I've ever seen.  It might have been bigger than those at the Cheesecake Factory!  I only ate about half of it before I conceded defeat.  This was at the Chop Shop for my office's holiday party.  It was a small crowd this year, but we had a good time.

January 4: I Hear...
My kitty meowing, wanting my attention.  Actually, this is my parents' kitty, but I was at their house this morning and anytime I'm sitting on the bed in the guest room, she thinks I'm solely there to cuddle her.  I'm usually pretty willing to comply.

Do you have any creative goals this year?  What are you going to try to accomplish in 2015?
