February Ten on 10

I love ten on 10. The goal of this project is to take one picture every hour for 10 hours in a row on the 10th of the month. It's not a simple documentary though - it's a challenge to notice beauty. On a hun-drum day like today, what else was there to do but put on the Hawaiian pandora channel and accept this challenge? Just what I needed.

Morning smoothie. She puts the strawberries into the blender (with close supervision). I put in spinach, kale or spirulina. It's about the only green anything she will willingly eat all day.

From our farm box this week. Is that not the most ridiculous radicchio you've ever seen?

Making "gingerbreads" for daddy and to share with her pre-school class later.

What? Is that a $12 jar of the world's best orange marmalade in the background? Why, yes! Yes, it is.
Did I just spread about 1/3 of that jar on my afternoon snack? Why, yes! Yes, I did.
I needed a pick-me-up. I really miss caffeine. And alcohol.

Arriving at the playground. This particular playground is about 1 block away from the Anchor Brewery. You might think that it always smells like beer but it doesn't. Instead it smells curiously of Spaghetti-O's, which is sort of comforting.

Sarah and Ada are about the same height - tall for their age. In the toddler swings they can both reach the ground with their feet.

Wrapping it up at the park - it's getting late but the girls are still having so much fun.

8:00 Bonus
Sweet girl drinking milk with our highly nutritious and well-balanced dinner of hot dogs. She has her daddy's eyes.

Go check out Rebekah's place. It's such a treat to visit over there and some of the sets this month are really fun :)
