stapsdoes101things: Pizza with '101' marked out in green pimento (101food)
Lime Muscavado Biscuits

My hundredth day is approaching at a terrifying pace. Yesterday, being my compressed day (the day off I get once a fortnight for working extra hard and extra long on the other nine days) I attacked some goals with vigour:

- I went outside in my dressing gown to get some photos of the morning sky and the bush at the corner of our garden. One of these was my picture of the day, and another will do for Smell in the Hundred Snapshots.


- I went swimming in the morning, for the first time since, erm, I completed my 'swim 50 lengths' goal last time around, not counting some splashing around in the sea. That was two and a half years ago.

I'm beginning to learn about what my body thinks it can and can't do. I hadn't even got to four lengths before my lungs were complaining, but I discovered that I can push through this, and actually managed thirty lengths in thirty minutes. Five hundred lengths is looking ambitious, yes, but just about manageable.


- I wild-released a book at the swimming pool, too.


- I spent most of the rest of the day in the kitchen, making Celery and Peanut Soup (from Best Kept Secrets of the Women's Institute: Home Cooking - not very exciting), Lime Muscovado Biscuits (pictured - from Cookies Galore - disappointing until iced, at which point they become very exciting); and Soufflé Pancakes with Cheese and Broccoli (from Mary Berry's Complete Cookbook - very tasty, but immensely fiddly, and I don't think I'd ever dare to cook it for anyone other than the Countertony and myself).


- Having eaten some of the above, I watched Shanghai Express (I must post a review) and did some patchwork.


Pretty productive all round, really.

I have...

- taken photographs for seven of the Hundred Snapshots
- spent an hour playing my cello
- taken a photograph every day
- released two books
- done quite a lot of Wii Fit
- applied to become a Mystery Worshipper
- posted a commentary on Lo, He Comes With Clouds Descending to [personal profile] ancientandmodern
- bagged [personal profile] musicalbible and started filling in verses from the back of the Bible - counting part-verses (which I am) I'm at 17/1001 so far. (I heartily recommend not subscribing to that one if you don't want to get spammed)
- filled in an online form by way of a first step for registering with the Anthony Nolan Trust
- wild-released two books
- tried Currywurst
- watched three TED talks
- more or less finished this year's Yuletide assignment

I think that's it. Whew!

Not a bad start, all things considered.

What's this about?

[livejournal.com profile] 100_snapshots is a photography challenge in which the participant is given 100 prompt words and takes a photograph for each of them. There is no time limit.


Why do I want to do this?

I'm trying to improve my photography, and this is another angle from which to approach it. I've already got goals on this list that will improve my more spontaneous pictures, but this one involves deliberately setting out to take photos of specific subjects.


How will I know I've done this?

Each of the words below will be a link to the photograph that illustrates it.


I'll record this using the list below, on Flickr, and possibly on the official LJ community.
