10 on 10

A few weeks ago I came across a blog, A bit of sunshine. Once a month, she takes a picture every hour for ten hours of her day. I really liked the reasoning behind why she started this. At the time, she was a new mom to two little ones, battling post pardum depression and trying to find some happiness and calmness in her exhausting world. So on the 10th of every month, she takes these pictures and posts them.

Well, I did the same. Although, I forgot that it was supposed to be the 10th of the month. I did it last week on the 7th. Oh well. Still, I will share with you my day in pictures.

8 am
End of school year send this in...send that in...class party...trying to keep it all straight

This was the day my mom burned her eye with cleaning solution out in the alpaca barns. So Andee came over to help clean poop. I kept an eye on the little boys.

So Big!

MomMom's back! She had to keep her eyes closed and sit in the dark the rest of the day. She's all recovered now. Hey Mom, doesn't this feel like months ago already?

Checking out the neighbor's apple orchard

Chickens! (the neighbor's)

Ahhhhh nap time

Baby watching, knitting (since this picture, we have two crias and my shawl is still not complete)

The fancy dinners of season! Yikes.

Baseball and a rainbow

That was a day.
In between all the pictures, I did accomplish housework and regular work.


  1. I really loved this post! What a fun thing to do. I love the picture of Chase in front of the barn! But all the pictures are great!

  2. I love the 10 on 10 idea! Plan to do it myself....thank you for sharing the idea. Even though the last of my four children graduated last week it will be a good way to view my next chapter in life. Also, my 3 sons were all baseball players. They enjoyed reading the Dan Gutman books about different
    Baseball cards that came to is called Babe and Me. I think your son would enjoy them.
    I am in Sea Isle this week with a group of graduated senior gals but will be back in the fall for an extended stay and hope to be able to visit your place then. I love all the pictures and stories you of luck with the babies.

    1. Thanks for your comments! We would love to have you visit the farm next time you're in town. We have a fun day in September for National Alpaca Farm Day. We'll post it on here or the website. I'll tell my boys about the books. They haven't read them yet, but we have heard of them. I'll put it next on the list for them.

  3. I now have google identity and am no longer anonymous. See my post above

  4. Even though I'm not much of a photographer, with no aspirations to get better, I think that's a great idea, too. It would give me one day of my life to look at closer and be more thankful for.

    1. It really was a fun thing to do. I enjoyed it. It made a normally boring day fun.

  5. i love that! i can see why this would help if you had PPD, just to have a goal for the next hour, just to get thru the day. (i have suffered from it myself). maybe i will give this a try as well.
