(Trying to )Learn Something New Every day

Good morning friends, as my title says I'm trying, sometimes I just don't seem to do anything that can be classed as learning, sometime I feel 'wow I didn't know that' for instance I've been very frustrated with my phone camera it hasn't enough scope, it doesn't do what I want it to do. But I have discovered that it has a zoom, I have always thought it should have a zoom, but I couldn't find it, I've lost the manual so couldn't read up about it, a week or so ago I thought that the pictures I had taken were strange, looked as though they were zoomed it, but how because I hadn't done anything to make them so. NOW I'VE DISCOVERED THE BUTTON, the one on the side, the volume one when it is a phone is also the zoom one when it is a camera, clever eh! multifunctional buttons can be so confusing.
So my page for the 2nd is my attempt to take a photo of the zoom effect on my phone camera with my real camera (does that make sense? never mind I think you get the gist of it)

the tag with the 'oops' on pulls out to reveal more journalling
2nd Tag

Yesterday's prompt for the lesson was along the lines of 'steps'. Well I was taking no steps at all yesterday I had a tummy bug and couldn't be too far from the loo. I did discover something but that will have to wait for another day as it didn't fit the prompt at all. Now how could I learn something from a day spent lounging around or sleeping that involved steps well a good start was to take a photo of my feet, that's something towards a page isn't it?

 (I rather like my feet they don't show weight gain as much as the rest of my body.)

 Lesson learnt, how to make the prompt fit the circumstances

Yesterday I was grateful for
 having a bungalow where the loo is on the same floor
not feeling ill with this bug
finding a way to do my page for the day

I think these are very good lessons. I just take each one as they come - even if they don't fit the prompt. And, lucky for you, today's prompt is all about what you can learn at home.

Fab learning Mary!

A place for me to put the pictures of layouts I have done that I am pleased with, to put in the poems I write and to add snippets of things that have caught my eye
