Well, today is officially Day One of not —errr — being employed – and it’s weird, but not terrible. Last week was busier with checking out, cleaning up and other commitments than I originally thought, so it was actually a pretty busy time.
Today however is a different story. There’s laundry and some phone calls to make, but it feels open-ended in a way that last week certainly did not. I was thinking about this space and blogging in general – and one of the things I’ve always liked was erin-carly’s Project 365, in which she takes and posts a picture every day.
I’d always thought this was a great idea, but with a short commute and a office-laboratory in which photos were strictly verboten, I never thought I’d have enough opportunity and diversity of subject matter to make a go of it.
So my idea is this. For each workday, I’ll take a photo – something around the house, the yard, the neighborhood, etc. If I go for a hike, I’ll take it along. Who knows what I’ll see… maybe it will inspire me to see good photos where I never thought to look before. I will start a collection here on the right as well to archive them. And while I’m not particularly stressy about getting another job and that it might take some time, I hope I won’t get to Day-365!

We were talking this weekend about taking some photos of the backyard for our landscape designer (because things are in bloom), but the afternoon sun washes a lot out (yard faces WSW), so I took some this morning, while the light was on my side.
