About the project

Welcome to my 365-Day Project. In 2013, I did a “What’s for Dinner?” theme, though that put undue burden on hubby since he’s the cook in the family.

For 2014, I’m going to do something akin to a pictorial gratitude blog by posting one thing per day that struck me as being particularly good – either rewarding, or is good news, or maybe just something that didn’t totally suck on a particularly bad day.

I’d love to read about your “good thing” for the day in the comments of each of my daily entries!

  1. What a great idea, kind of like a journal women have kept for years in notebooks, only sharing with the world. I’m interested in what is in the glass in your background picture?


  2. Thanks, Katherine! I have to say that the first one was unspectacular because sauerkraut doesn’t photograph at the best of times and then night time is also the worse time to photograph…and so, dinner looks like a gelatinous mess. LOL!


  3. Pat, it is so hard to remember all the meals, day in and day out, isn’t it? It is definitely soup weather right now; it’s one of the few things I really like about winter: the need for a bowl of hot soup. 🙂 Hubby just whipped up the salmon chowder without a recipe. I’m lucky to be married to a talented cook.


  4. Hey Teresa, I couldn’t comment on your latest post, so I do it here. Just yesterday I went to a huge bookstore to look for some nice children´s books and for inspiration on illustrating them. I expected to find outstanding pictures… Well, I found some, but most of them were rather disappointing. Many times I thought: If I were a kid I would not like these pictures at all. And those were pictures painted by professional illustrators and accepted by all the editors… I think it´s a good approach to just go on, keep doing what you´re doing! I will publish my planned book by myself – if I ever get done… 😉 Have you ever thought of that?

  5. Hi Ann, nice to hear from you! Are you getting close to completing your book? How exciting! I know that while it’s fairly simple to self-publish a book these days, it’s much harder to self-pub a picture book for a number of reasons. I don’t know that I have the time or energy to look into it right now. Also, now that I have a literary agent, I’m putting my time into writing stories that she can sell for me. I don’t have as much time to work on illustrations. I’m thinking that after I have a couple of books under my belt, I might be allowed to illustrate my own. 🙂 Good luck with yours; keep me posted!
