One thing I love about blogging is participating in online events, where one blogger blogs about something & then invites their readers to follow along with them and blog about your own experience. One of my favourites in a Week in the Life by Ali Edwards. She has taken the idea of a Week in the Life & condensed it to a Day in the Life. Another blogger I like to read Rita from Suburbs Mama and today I saw that she decided to document a day in her life. So why not jump on the same band wagon! Yesterday I grabbed my camera & documented my yesterday.
8am – I slept in then decided at 8am that I had better start my day.
After getting up I released Curios from his cage, that he had been in since WH left for work about 15mins earlier. Though from the noise he was making (the reason I decided to get up when I did) you would like that he had been locked up all day.
Went back to the bedroom to get dressed & make the bed. Turned around & my stalker was entering.
9am – sat down in the music room to spend some quite time alone with God.
Had breakfast & put the dishes away from last night.
Checked emails, read some blogs & finished my new phone pouch (too cute right? I’ll post about this cutie soon).
Got reminder on my phone to send texts out about Youth group this week. Also washed the dishes from breakfast & finally remembered to book the car in for a service.
11am – finished folding & putting away clothes that were washed the day before.
Put a coat of paint on my frame project (more coming about this)
12noon – Did some more work on a tablet computer case for a friend & lunch. Also turned the TV to watch some mindless TV. Great for when your doing repetitive jobs, like unpicking.
2pm – Made shortcrust pastry for dinner & put another coast of paint on my frame project.
4pm – Made a start on some ‘thank you’ cards for all the lovely birthday gifts I got last week.
5pm – Realised that I hadn’t finished making the pastry base from dinner, opps! Rolled pastry, put it in the pastry case & popped it into the fridge before blind baking (bit warm for shortcrust pastry today)
6pm – finished cooking dinner with help from WH
7pm – Eating dinner & watching TV
That is pretty much the end of my day, other than showers, washing the dishes, brushing teeth then going to bed.
I wrote down what I did all day on Ali Edwards Daily Sheets from last years Week in the Life. One thing I have taken away from this exercise is that I accomplish heaps in the morning! I think that is probably because it is summer & it get hot & humid late morning into the afternoon.
This was a pretty normal day for me, things would be alittle different if I had work or was doing one of the couple of volunteer jobs that I do. I don’t know if I will just leave the day documented like this or if I’ll put all the photos & the daily sheets together in a layout. Not sure. I will have to think about it.
