Flickr Photo Badge

Thanks for stopping by to check out another day in my life. Today is Sunday and am definitely enjoying a down day in town for a change. I have hardly been home since the new year and needed a break.

They are currently working on the interstate which is only a few blocks from my house. I was not amused when I was awaken by huge steel pylons being driven into the hard ground at 7am this morning. Not like they could not wait to 9am or 10am. No, they have to wake me up on Sunday at 7am which did not make for a very happy camper.

After waking up, I started off my day with a protein shake and a workout. I have been doing a two day split workout since I just started back after an injury. It had been six months since I had touched a weight. So on day one, I have been doing pecs, triceps, biceps, shoulders and back. On day two, I do abs, butt, legs and forearms. Having just been getting my body used to push weight again so each exercise is just one set. Will start doing a three day split probably on February 1st.

Then it was time to make the trip to our local grocery store, Publix. Luckily we are having a warm front in north Florida right now and had highs near almost 70. Plus I needed to pick up several things to make for dinner in the upcoming week. I like to have fresh vegetables and fruit in the house as healthy snacks. Since I started working out again, I go through two to three bananas a day in my protein shakes.

After another protein shake, I decided to take a nap since my morning had been so rudely interrupted by the construction. I was having one of those lazy days where you just really do not feel like doing a whole lot.

But on to the subject of the day. Since I love photography and would at best consider myself an amateur photographer, I opened a Flickr account about three months ago. Not only does Flickr allow me to share my photos and get help from other photographers, it also gives me web storage in case I ever lose the file or they get corrupted.

So here is my try at their new flash badge:

This is a Flickr badge showing items in a set called Dab Pics. Make your own badge here.

Let me know what you think.

I hope you had a safe and great weekend and make some special memory for yourself. Remember life is not a dress rehearsal!

Big bear hug,

Daddy Dab
