Happy Thursday! As the week goes by, I’m noticing a few things about my pictures:
- We don’t get out much. Thursday and Friday are our out-and-about days, but I try to stay at home on Monday to Wednesday so that we can really focus on schoolwork (and housework!)
- Because these past three days have been kinda similar, I’m forced to find new ways to take pictures of repetitive things. I started using the timer on my camera today for this reason, and realized it was less hassle than I’d expected, so did it a few times throughout the day. Usually my pictures are of everyone else in the family, because I’m the one behind the camera most of the time, but I’m trying to ask Anika to take more pictures for me, just for variety, and because of that heartbreaking scene in the movie “Beaches”, when she’s searching wildly for a picture of her mother’s hands, because she can’t remember what they looked like. When I’m gone, I want my kids to remember what I look like!
- It’s been cloudy. It is so much harder to take good pictures inside when it’s cloudy – there is so much less light coming in! And it’s supposed to stay cloudy for the rest of the week, unfortunately. But we will press on!
Alright. Wednesday’s photos:
Morning smoothie at the computer while I edited photos.
I love it that she smiles to herself while she swings.:)
I did some more stretches when we got inside. I try to get all my stretches done in the morning, but it takes me about 45 minutes to do them all, and I rarely have a chunk of time long enough to finish them all at once.
Kaylia was playing at the counter, and Everett wanted to join her, but as soon as I got him settled, she took her toys to the living room so Everett couldn’t mess them up. He wasn’t very happy about this!
After supper, Anika went to youth, Kaylia went to play with the neighbour kids, Ben worked on flooring in the basement, I cleaned up the kitchen, and Everett went back and forth between us. He stole the container of cheese and somehow managed to drag it downstairs!
Once I was done cleaning the kitchen, I folded all the laundry.
I took a shower, and did yoga and planking, while Ben worked on more flooring in the basement. In this picture, my SI support belt is showing really clearly. I’ve been wearing it for about 3 weeks, because I hurt my tailbone really badly. I’m supposed to stop using it so much once I can plank for five minutes.
It was a good day, but I was exhausted!! Must be all the hockey in the basement or something!
