Ten on 10 ~ a day of photos

On the 10th of every month, stop every hour for ten hours to take a picture of something around you.  Then, share your ten photos.  That's what we do at Ten on Ten.  And, today is my first time making a Ten on Ten post!  I have attempted to do this before, but let me tell you, stopping every hour is not easy to do!  Plus, today was a stay at home and get things done day, and there are just not that many interesting things in my house to take a picture of!  These photos were not taken every hour on the hour, but somewhere near there :) I did the best I could!  I have also linked up with a couple of other photo challenges, and you will see their links along the way.  So,  here we go . . .

Sevenish (a.m.)

I took this photo during my "white space" time this morning.  I took many photos of the sunrise, but this was the first one I snapped.  There is a story behind these sunrise photos and I'll be writing more about that and my "white space" time next weekend.  So stay tuned for more!

I am also sharing this photo with SOOC Sundays

Elevenish (Yes, there is a 4 hour gap here, but I'll get back on track!)

Bacon, bacon, bacon!


Bought the 24 pack of eggs today.  We go through LOTS of eggs!

I am also sharing this photo with Scripture and a Snapshot


My planner.  It is a big, red 8 x 11 1/2 notebook.  It includes a daily/monthly calendar, file folders, calculator, pockets, etc. etc.  It helps me stay on track with what is going on in my parents lives since I spend so much time tending to their needs, and it helps keep me focused on my own responsibilities.  And yes, I schedule plenty of playtime.


I think this one is self explanatory.


I bought my first scented candle of the season.  The scent is Farmer's Market by Yankee Candles. Smells great, and is really getting me in the mood for Fall! I was taking a photo of the candle, but decided I liked this shot the best which has one of my beautiful nieces in focus in the background.  She is 18 and a freshman in college this year.


Flowers on my coffee table.  I couldn't decide so I made a collage of three.
I'm also submitting this one to SOOC Sundays.


My puppy was having nothing to do with having his picture taken.

Sevenish (Yes, I missed an hour.)

Preparing potatoes for dinner.


Last but not least.  A pretty votive candle glowing in my dining room.

So there is my Ten on 10 post!

I'm also linking up wtih Simple Things because these are all the simple things in a simple day.

  8. Hey, Stephani! This is a nifty idea! Following a day with a shot an hour - and wow - you have some really great photos here! I'd find it hard, too, to stay on track with the time! Let alone subjects. Quite a challenge - that's what makes it fun and interesting, though!

  9. Looks like you had a really pleasant day. All of your photos are very interesting, I love the "everyday" photos as much as the "wowsers". Enjoy your week ahead.

  10. WE go through a lot of eggs here too. And bacon. Love it. The verse you included on your eggs is beautiful. Thanks for stopping by and you have a wonderful first 10 on 10!
