Christmas 2013, one hour at a time

Posted by: andrea tomkins In: Challenge me, challenge you

Merry Christmas! Just for the record, the eldest woke up the earliest today. The rest of us are pretty tired. Piper has been very confuzzled. 8:00 a.m. – the stockings are already unwrapped, and we await company. 9:00 a.m. – THE UNWRAPPING 10:00 a.m. – brunch in the making 11:00 a.m. – toy testing 12 […]

Regular readers already know how this works. The Hourly Photo Challenge is you, me, and a bunch of other people, taking one photo every hour on the hour throughout the day of whatever we happen to be doing or looking at that very moment. Here are my results last year. It is an amazing way to document a day […]

The Obligatory Blurb

My name is Andrea and I live in the Westboro area of Ottawa with my husband Mark and our two daughters Emma (18) and Sarah (16). I am the managing editor of our community newspaper, the Kitchissippi Times. I am a longtime Ottawa blogger, and I've occupied this little corner of the WWW since 1999... which makes me either a total dinosaur or a veteran, I'm not sure which! The Fishbowl is my whiteboard, water cooler, and journal, all rolled into one. I'm passionate about healthy living, arts and culture, family travel, great gear, good food, and sharing the best of Ottawa for families. I also love vegetables, photography, gadgets, and great design.
