Something I Do Each Day

This is Day 4 of My Life. In Pictures. and the assignment was to take a picture of something you do each day. At first I couldn't think of anything that I did that I wanted to take a picture of, besides maybe a picture of taking care of my family. Then Rich suggested the mailbox, because I walk out to get the mail each day. So here it is:


I know it doesn't look too exciting, but it is for me. I love getting the mail! It's like opening up a present each day and being surprised by what's inside. I'll admit most days the 'present' is quite dissapointing...usually a bill or a boring catalog...but I still love the anticipation as I walk up to the mailbox. There could always be a letter from a friend or a special package waiting for me. Those rare occasions, where there is a nice 'present', are what keeps 'getting the mail' exciting for me. :-)

To participate in My Life. In Pictures., or to see what other people do each day, head on over to Everything Except the Grill.

Great photo and simple routine of getting the mail. I feel that same way about getting the mail. When you are home each day, it is a chance to get out for a breath of fresh air and the anticipation of what might be in the box for you.

What a peaceful stretch of road. When I lived in the country at my parents', it was always an adventure to make the trek down to the end of the driveway to pick up the mail. Now, I pop my head out the door, and that's it. :( But yesterday I got Glamour magazine and my tax refund statement, so yaaaaay for mail!

What a great picture - that would be a great pic to frame and hang. I'm planning on taking a series of photos of our house/yad before we move and then printing them and hanging them in our new house. Our dad built this house (well, we all did really) and there are alot of memories here (but shhh, don't tell my mom, it's going to be surprise!)

I love getting the mail too, so exciting!

That is a very good picture. And they do have the possibility of a thousand words huh :)

It's amazing the little things in our lives that become routine, but yet if focused on will make a good discussion.

Oh! I love the mail to (but we have a doorman and take the elevator to get our mail). The picture is lovely and very evocative. Thanks for sharing.
