Failure



Sara had this great idea ...
where you take a picture every day for a year. Then, every Sunday you post your seven pictures for the week.

So far, the above picture is the only picture in my 2009 picture folder ... pitiful. The picture itself says "failure" and the first post of the project screams "failure." (Maybe next week I'll have two pictures and one of them will be of salad next to my South Beach Diet book.)

Oh sweet Mama Belle. The metaphor here is just too hard to miss. *sigh* I'm right here with ya, sista.

I planned to do this and I am late, my new usual. Oh well, the 365 doesn't have to be in the same year does it?

MB, I laughed out loud when I saw that pic....I've done the South Beach diet before and have dreamed of pancakes. So yum!
Can't wait to see the pics next week provides.

that picture could have been mine today!!! I have 32 days till a vacation at the beach......I am thinking this holiday weight is not going to come off through osmosis!!!

LOL I am going to do this, I think. . . maybe my goal will be 5 pictures each week? :o) Thanks for sharing!!

How can you call a pound of fried bacon failure? Throw out that book then this photo will be perfect!

Harsh! Harshness in this post! Yikes! Just dust yourself off and jump in again.

Autumn said...

If that is a failure, then why does it look so yummy?

Jodie said...

Can anything involving bacon really be considered a failure? I should think not.

Jeanette said...

Don't be so hard on yourself! Take three more pictures today and call it even :} Really! Who would know?! I give my permission and no one else is peeking - it will help you feel better!!

Hugs!

Well, I have to disagree with you. You actually have two photos up which is HALF the assignment for this week. That's pretty good odds if you ask me. I'm thinkin the photo of "Mr. Sassy Pants" counts as one. AND if you count the photos you posted on the first.....you've actually exceeded the four pics needed. ;)

Blessings, Susan

This made me laugh...sorry. I ordered a salad at Wendy's this afternoon, but then I dumped a container of chili on it and cheese and these these tortilla strips (doritos). I don't think the lettuce won. I also finished my kid's fries. BUT, I am skipping dinner. It's just not easy. Tomorrow's another day. Take some pictures then.

You did better than me....I looked at the challenge and said "Impossible".

As much as I love taking a bazillion photos per year, I had to turn my head.

However, a diet should be a commitment, but I have shunned setting myself up for that failure too.

How funny. That picture is ironic. Why is it so hard? I can't seem to stop cookin' food I know we'll like and want to eat even if it's full of bad for you stuff. Oh, woe is me.

Fabulous idea...
Don't know if I can follow through, but I do believe I'll give it a whirl. Thanks for the pitch.
And Honey, ain't no going wrong with bacon. Ever.

Jenn Calling Home said...

I like the picture idea and since I got a nifty new camera for Christmas, I have no excuse; plus it will give me something to post on the weekend. Maybe I'll include a verse from each day too.

Stop by and read about my new recipe adventure so far this year. Blessings!

Ohhhhhhhhhh, I want to do the 365 project! That sounds fun. I think I have taken a picture every day so far. I think.
