While lazily scrolling through my Twitter feed this morning, I came across an interesting link. It lead me to this post. The idea was to share a week in your life through photos, words, notes, whatever you are comfortable with sharing. The point is to make a memory and give your blog readers a little peek into your life, as well as take a peek into others lives if you care to. I’ve often read Kathy’s and Gerry’s and Robin’s “slice of life”-style posts and thought maybe I’d do one. This mini-project has some motivation attached too – a chance to win a really neat camera bag! I decided to take a stab at it. I don’t know if my crazy life will allow me to keep up all week, but here I go!
Today was actually a really good day for a project like this to start. In addition to having the day off from work, it was a truly amazing day weather-wise for New England in October. It was beautifully sunny once again, and look at the temp:
(and that was after the sun was starting to go down – I forgot to take a shot of the thermometer this afternoon when it was over 80)
My day started how I like it to start on weekends; it felt even more delicious knowing it was Monday!
Coffee and blog reading
I moved on to working on a couple of baby quilts. I’ve really procrastinated on this for too long – these twin babies are due to arrive this Friday! Yikes I better get moving!
But it was way too beautiful outside to spend the whole day inside!
My pool still isn’t closed! Working on it, working on it – hopefully tomorrow.
Spent some time in my favorite chair.
I’m currently reading Cold Vengeance by Douglas Preston & Lincoln Child.
I sooooo enjoyed the fact that I could sit outside comfortable in shorts! Woo-hoo!
Dinner time brought a recipe from Cooking Light magazine.
Chicken and Herb White Pizza was delicious! Definitely a keeper recipe. Just look at Sarah:
So, there’s a little voyeurism for you into this life. I’m kind of curious to see what the rest of this week will bring; are you?
P.S. I took all of my shots today using my nifty-fifty 50mm 1.8 lens. It was seeming a bit underused recently, so I might make it part of my challenge that I will use it for all my shots this week, just to have a slightly different point of view.
