I kept noticing all these pictures on Instagram that had the hashtag #JanPhotoADay so I was intrigued as to what it was all about. Seems this gal who's instagram name is FatMumSlim puts these lists together on what to take a picture of each day. I got on board in Feb and it's so much fun!!
Here are my pictures so far.
I will post the rest on this post as the month goes on.

Day 12 Inside my Closet
This is rather a boring one! but I do have 2 sleeping bags hiding in there! this is because every year when we go to Girl Scout Camp I can never find the sleeping bags so this past year I decided to hide them in my closet with the flash lights!
Have you every really realized the things you use EVERY DAY?
I just realized these few things about myself
1) I use only one bowl in my house to eat out of. It's a vintage blue bowl I got at an antique store.
2) I only eat from one plate. If it's dirty I wash it before I will eat. It's small (I have always preferred smaller plates must have been that weight watchers thing from years ago) It's a rectangle with sides.
3) Now this one I've know for a long time. I only use Soup spoons to eat with! don't know why but I love them & my very favorite one I took from a resort in Jamaica. (Sorry I know that was wrong of me but I want to be buried with this spoon)
4) This one isn't much of a secret but I needed a 4th for my picture lol! My French press. I have had coffee makers in the past & have one now but I just Love my French press the best!
When I quit my Job I had grand plans to make my own sour cream, yogurt, sour dough bread, cheese, pasta, etc.... well non of which I have made lol.
But this week I did start making bread, not sour dough (which I did make the starter it just seemed like way more work that I was willing to put in to it). Now for the best part..... My family ate it all at one sitting! The third time it didn't all go but I did get a good effort. It tastes a lot like egg bread kind of sweet and oh so yummy. I did make home made cinnamon rolls this morning which I thought were good but I had ran out of white flour and had to use some Whole Wheat flour well hubby noticed the "brown " color and declared he does not like Wheat! WTH really you don't like Wheat? whatever not worth the fight.
So This week I will be adding Olives to my bread to see what that might taste like!
Here's the link to the Recipe (click the word Recipe)
After I did the video's for the Bohemian Bag I was kind of over it...... then it came back to me the other day and a trip to Salvation Army was in my future! The thought of a Black & Gray bag with Sweater beads that were beaded with hot pink beads got me drooling again! After your first one they whip up quick! I can't wait to ditch this cast and backpack so I can carry it around town!
