“Instructions for living a life.
Tell about it.”
― Mary Oliver
For this month's installment of "living a life", my photography friends and I decided to share with you a day in our life. Being the procrastinator that I am, I took out my camera yesterday and attempted to give you an idea of our day. This was actually more challenging than I thought it would be. I took far too many pictures but still feel like I didn't really tell a complete story. Hopefully, this will give you somewhat an idea of what went on during our day. The hubby worked all weekend but had yesterday off. We were gone all weekend at grandma's house so the boys were excited to see their daddy. It was a pretty typical Monday...As usual, Gus woke up first so we started off the day checking the veggie garden for slugs that have taken a liking to my beans. Grrr. Lots of down time for the boys....checking to see if the blackberries are ready to be picked, playing legos, reading books, pretending to be superheroes while jumping off the bed, concocting a habitat in the old fish bowl for an old crayfish leg Owen found and leaving it in the sink for me.... That was a nice surprise. Ha! I had some me time (thanks dear) and went for a walk/jog on the new state trail by our house. After my walk, I actually did a little shopping. Shopping for me is a rarity these days. ;) Other than that, it was a pretty normal day. Besides Gus somehow getting a child lock cap off some teething tablets and proceeding to eat half the bottle.... Resulting in a phone call to poison control...he's ok. Thank goodness. (I did not take pictures of that....) He is going to send me to an early grave. (also note, Gus getting into the freezer early in the morning and into the ice cream...little stinker!) At the end of the day, there's always lots of rough housing post shower/bath time. Gotta love those silly boys.... I was lucky enough to end my day with a photo session. It was a beautiful eve for picture taking.... All in all a pretty laid back summer day. Alas, here are snippets of a day in our life...
