Week in the Life

Week in the Life: Day 7

It was the last day and I was running out of steam. I took about the same number of photos total, but it's mostly multiple shots of the same thing.

A couple months ago, I put together a bunch of crock pot meals to keep in the deep freeze. This stew was one. I figured we should eat it on this chilly day before it turned in to summer. This is it half way done. I forgot to take any shots when we were eating.

DSCN0144

Bunny! My yard has lots of bunnies. I'm glad I finally caught a picture of one.

DSCN0155

Primer.

DSCN0160

Ready for painting tomorrow.

I played The Sims for the first time in about a week. This is Loggins Messina. He lives in the wilderness and likes to fish and garden. He's also kind of a good cook.

IMAG1188

Hannah brought me a present around (my) bedtime, to say thanks for some advice I gave her.

All this doccumenting has been tougher than I thought. I'm kind of tired of it and glad tomorrow is the last day. It's also made me really unsatisfied with my formerly beloved Nikon Coolpix s6000. I need a dslr.

Week in the Life: Day 5

Today's photo count was significantly lower. It's harder to come up with photos when you're the only person home all day.

DSCN9929

This is a great image to start the day with. Sad I didn't think of it till Tuesday.

DSCN9934

Good morning Daisy.

Good morning kitchen. Someone left you messy last night.

IMAG1124

With the kitchen tidy, Daisy and I settle down to watch and episode of Supernatural. It's "Home", the first episode set in Lawrence, KS (where I live). LOVE Lawrence episodes. Too bad they don't film here.

IMAG1127

I had breakfast while I was watching.

 

IMAG1130

While I watched, H was getting ready for school. She changed the resevoir in her insulin pump.

IMAG1132

Thursday is trash day. Trash comes early. Recycling comes much later.

It was time for the daily mirror shot of me.

DSCN9967

I snuck upstairs to try to catch D & H doing whatever they were doing.

DSCN9970

Hannah came downstairs before I could head to her room. "Don't you know I always come downstairs when I hear you and dad talking?" she said. Dig her Stonehenge shirt. We bought it at Stonehenge.

IMAG1149

I managed to accidentally catch Kathy Griffith's new show.

IMAG1151

Hannah came down to talk. I told her since she came down I had to take a picture of her. "Ok, but I don't like it." she said.

Writing in my journal before bed. Gotta have my dog and my Tivo remote.

Week in the Life: Day 3

There were less photos in general yesterday, and a few I've been instructed not to post online. I think the issue could be that I took a lot of generic photos on the first two days. And that I was just feeling out of sorts.

DSCN9859

DSCN9863

DSCN9869

Making meatloaf in the morning. It was going to get pretty hot and I figured the crock pot would be a good way to cook dinner.

I didn't think to take photos before or during dinner. Here's after.

DSCN9918

Outside with Daisy.

DSCN9928

I had an incredible time outside last night. It was a rare night when no other neighbors were out making lots of noise. The temperature and the breeze were fantastic. I stayed out until the misquitos won.

DSCN9920

IMAG1115

Hannah came down to say goodnight.

And that was it. This project is about capturing the every day moments. I think I'm doing it.

As I was over by the rose bush, I noticed the poison ivy. !! Every year I battle that stuff and it looks like this year will be no exception. Actually I've read this year will be exceptionally hard. The climate changes have given extra strength to fire ants, deer ticks and poison ivy.

DSCN9843

While Danny and I were buying the poison ivy poison, we picked up a new disc drive since mine has stopped working.

DSCN9846

I watched The Voice. And tweeted. That retweet cracks me up. I so agree!

DSCN9854

The President slow jammed the news. I love him. The band played Let's Stay Together.

DSCN9856

Back from the concert. She had a good time. I was finally in bed around 1am.

I've never done it before although I've read about it for a few years. I didn't think I'd do it this year either, it seems like a lot of work and I'm already behind with Project Life. But then I woke up yesterday and decided to give it a go.

It was a boring day. We went to 4 different grocery stores and did a lot of nothing. An average day.

 

DSCN9594

Good Morning. Checking the Internet and Good Morning America with my caffeine.

Finally back home to watch General Hospital, thanks to the Tivo. Daisy likes to watch with me.

When Danny got home, he sat on the porch and let Daisy out front.

DSCN9682

DSCN9685

At dinner I realized I didn't have any potatoes! After all those grocery trips. I send D & H to get some instant ones. I predict it will take them 20 minutes which H takes as a challenge. They are back in less than 10 minutes.

DSCN9705

Easy, tasty dinner. That is Hannah's favorite fork.

DSCN9707

We watch the news while we have dinner. First the Daily Show, then Diane Sawyer.
