Day 10:

We don’t get much snow where I live and when we do it’s a calamity because of all the ice that accompanies it. This is what I woke up to the day after I was sick.

Day 11:

Went out to dinner with the family. Although I was feeling better, my appetite hadn’t quite recovered. That combined with a very tired toddler who was acting up, meant I took most of my meal home in a box.

Day 12:

I decided to play around with the shutter priority function on the PowerShot.

Day 13 and Day 14 were the days I forgot to take a picture. Mea culpa but I will proceed with the project anyway.

I captured this father-son moment on my iphone.
