1 Day 1 World Project: 11:00 am – 12:00 pm

1D1W 11a

It’s hard to believe we’ve reached the last hourly post in my six month project documenting one hour each week for 24 straight weeks!  Back in May I thought we would have fun watching the time pass through different seasons and countries but I never dreamed this series would inspire so many of you to open up and try new things. I owe each and every one of you a big thank you for sharing your adventures, ideas and time through your posts and comments.

There have been few weeks when I planned an event and photo op around the time period out of necessity.  Anyone who knows me understands that after 10:00 pm I’m pretty much done for the night and without something scheduled we would have had a stretch of seriously boring posts.  Our “in the dark” adventures turned out to be some of my favorite memories from the past six months but the majority of the weeks I purposely left open to really capture what an hour out of my life is like on a normal day.  As luck would have it I’m ending the project in the same way I started by capturing a new beginning.

After years of promising Ryan we would think about getting a dog we finally gave in and said yes – say hello to Finnegan everyone! We found Finn in a rescue shelter and even though he spent a scary first year as a stray he survived the streets and several shelters before finding his way to our family.  It was hard to get a clear photo of a dog who is still pretty nervous around people but this quiet moment on our stairs is from the 11:00 hour on our first day home together.   He’d just let me brush him and was ready to settle down for a nap in the sun.

While this is the last original post in the 1 Day 1 World Project I have one more entry planned for next Sunday, October 19th recapping our virtual day. I hope you’ll come back to see all 24 photos together and if any of you would like to share your own experiences I’d love to read along and will be happy to link them here.

  1. Congratulations on the new addition to your clan! Rescue dogs are very loyal. Your comment about getting a clear photo made me smile. Maggie very seldom stops, I am and if she does, as soon as I try to get a picture she wants to know what I’m doing by getting in my face. This adventure has been fun!


    1. Thanks, Patrick. 🙂 I’m seeing Finn become more protective every day and it’s great to watch him feel comfortable in our house and yard. Wish me luck regarding new photos, I’ll keep at it until we have some good ones. 😉


  2. Congratulations on a successful run and a wonderful end to your Project! Can’t wait to see the wrap up next week as I know I’ve missed seeing a number of hours. Love the name you chose for your new pup, by the way 🙂


    1. Thanks, Stacy! Ryan chose the name a while ago but we didn’t think we could use it as we were initially looking for a girl dog. Everything worked out for the best though, we have a fun pup and Ryan got to use his 1st choice name. 🙂 I’m looking forward to the recap too and hope everyone enjoys reading it!


  3. Congratulation, Lisa, for sticking to the porject. I coildn’t do it. And a lovely way to end by rescuing a much needed life and love for Finn. He is one lucky dog and your son must be estatic. Happy trails. Perpetua


  4. Congratulations on the new addition to your family. Finn is a cutie!!

    Thank you for this great 24 hour adventure. It was unique and a lot of fun. Looking forward to the summary next week!


  5. woof woof – congrats on the new dog -and what a happy post to wrap up the project with. also -congrats for rescuing a dog instead of going to a fancy store – ha!

    anyhow, looks like love is in the air with Finn ❤ ❤ ❤
    and two tips – check out the terrier man's blog for lots of DIY tips and cool info.

    and second, check out how awesome DE is for pets (and humans)

    my friend told me about DE back in 2006 – but she did such a lousy job explaining it that I never even looked it up. Well! Now it is a must have and it has been amazing.
    You can use it on the fur (but especially in their bed area) as a natural pest eradicator – but also around the house for so much more – and some folks use it for internal cleansing or for facials. Anyhow, DE is awesome – so at least check it out.

    Peace ! 🙂


    1. Thanks for the wonderful tips, Yvette! John and I each had dogs when we were kids but Finn is our first rescue together and we’ve got a bit of a learning curve ahead. He’s a sweet boy though and ready for structure and love. 🙂


  6. Yay! The final hour has arrived: http://smallbluegreenwords.wordpress.com/2014/10/13/one-day-one-world-project-1100-1200/
    Thank you Lisa for such an interesting, thought-provoking project. I have enjoyed every week and only sorry I wasn’t able to manage the 4 – 6 am slots 😦 but I really enjoyed getting up with you and the family; Ryan must have had some tales to tell on his return to school.

    Congratulations on a wonderful challenge that has kept me busy planning and photographing throughout the summer, thinking, yes, that will be a good thing to do for Lisa (such as the smoking goat o_O ) and well done you, finishing with a new beginning and the start of a new project – your lovely pup! Good luck with Finn, I am sure you and Ryan and John (?) will give Finn the perfect loving family.
    Jude xx


    1. Jude, I continue to be touched by how many fellow blog friends really had fun with this project and hearing that some of you approached hours of the day thinking how you would frame a post is just wonderful. 🙂 And you’re right, Ryan was full of stories for his friends when school started… Midnight milkshakes, 3am full moons, scary movies… big adventures. 🙂

      John, Ryan and I are enjoying Finn and it looks like he is settling into his new home quite well!


  7. It seems sad to say goodbye to this one, Lisa. I wish I’d been able to see it right through. I do have a final entry I’ll be posting in a day or two. Lovely to meet Finn. I think he’s struck lucky at last. Thanks for a most enjoyable Summer. 🙂


    1. You’re welcome, Jo and thank you for all of your great contributions! I’m going to miss the series too but it feels like we’re ending at the right time. 🙂 Be on the lookout for more photos of Finn as he gets comfortable with my camera in his face. 🙂


  8. I’ll definitely come over on the 18th. If I forget, hop over to my place and give me a nudge ;). I will be back later on, Lisa, I am a bit stretched out after my holidays…


  9. Lisa, thank you for initiating this really interesting and fun challenge! Your new family member looks really sweet and he is very lucky to have found such a nice family and home. Wish you the very best.
