NaBloPoMo Day 9: Weekly Photo Challenge – Habit

NaBloPoMo_November_small_0I am definitely enjoying NaBloPoMo so far,  that is if enjoy is the best word. There’s certainly a thrill in the challenge.

I  do like that I’ve made a commitment to writing.  Well at least to posting – I’ve managed to put something up every day. I still have a feeling of accomplishment  however fledgling; that I’ve created something, taken one step closer to my goal, created a routine of blogging.

So far I’ve shown you a lot of images, but I haven’t shared a lot of words.  I’m hoping this will change – I do have things to say.  Right now, with the stress of work and the fear of failing, it’s all muddled into a giant puddle in my head, needing to be sorted and categorized and mastered.

In the meantime, I have pictures. 

That’s how the words start in my head, after all. I am truly grateful for the daily prompts and photo challenges giving me an opportunity to show you these images; the seeds of my words, the foundation of this new habit.

Coincidentally, this week’s WordPress photo challenge (and this day’s writing “cop-out” since I spent the entire afternoon cleaning the loft and doing unskilled surgery on my vacuum cleaner):

“Show us something that’s a HABIT. Capture a moment both constant and fleeting.”

Many bloggers posting to this challenge have shown moments from the habit of their daily lives.  It’s a lovely window into their uniqueness, illustrating the individual behind the post.

Here’s a snippet from some of my my “habits” – a snapshot of a typical midweek morning.  I hope you enjoy the look.

The first request for breakfast.

Upon waking, the first {semi-polite} request for breakfast.

The next request for breakfast.

The next request for breakfast, this one with a little more volume. And muscle.

Coffee on the veranda as the sun comes up.

Maybe time for coffee on the veranda as the sun comes up. More likely running maniacally around the loft looking for my I.D. badge or name tag.

It's one of the prettiest angles of the city skyline but it's a lot of cars between me and my office.

It’s one of the prettiest angles of the city skyline but there’s still a lot of cars sandwiched between me and my office.

Winding my way to the heart of downtown.

Winding my way to the heart of downtown.

Ten or twenty minutes to wrassle an elevator to the top, but the view outside my office is pretty sweet.  Now, on to work!

  1. I thoroughly enjoyed your blog today. And I know from writing in my journal , or trying to, write everyday…it’s quite a job. I am the only one who reads it yet somedays I can write just the date! 

    The pictures…I love your pictures. Keep it up.

    I’ve never told myself that I’ll write each day but I try to. ”You’re a better man than I” kimicalreaction.

  2. Linda! You do write every day, or almost every day, in Myfamily.com. That is so important – you keep everyone together.

    I will challenge you to join me on this, if you like. It’s never to late to start. You can set up a free blog on wordpress. I’d love the company. 🙂

    Your support means the world to me. Thank you for being better than the best mother-in-law I could have ever imagined. And then some. Thank you for being my friend.
