For Thursday I decided to do things a bit different. I wanted to have one photo for each hour during the day. And to be happy for that one thing documented each and every hour. I also took a photo of the sunshine bright and early in the morning and ended the photo shoot with the sunset as seen from my garden. So here are the photos, a time stamp and a few words:
06:00 - golden morning
09:00 - inspired to create
10:00 - breakfast in the sunshine
11:00 - happy playing in his room
12:00 - computer time
13:00 - card game
14:00 - nature
15:00 - catching up on the words
16:00 - surf board (MT's choice of photo/thing)
17:00 - reading cartoons outside while it rains is so cozy (MT's words)
18:00 - watching
19:00 - dinner in the making
20:00 - lots of room
21:00 - brushing his teeth (finally we got our water back!)
22:00 - sunset
PHOTO COUNT: 139
THOUGHT ABOUT THE PROJECT
It wasn’t all that easy to remember to take photos each and every hour. I used the alarm on my phone, but still almost forgot it. I liked this way of capture our day and am so glad I have at least one such day.
I can't believe July is almost over. It went so fast.
It was filled with rain - but also so good!!
It’s the last day of the month and I wanted to give a plug for The Digi Files from The Daily Digi. And to show off the layouts I made for July (off course). I’ll squish it in here in between all the Week In The Life stuff going on right now 😀
MT were beyond thrilled about his new bike.

When I got there you met me with the usual: ‘What are you doing here so early?!’ I saw a little anger in your eyes, you really don’t want me to pick you up until the closing time. But this time I had to: ‘We’re going to buy you a bike’, I answered. Instantly you started smiling, from ear to ear and you started jumping around hugging you friends while shouting out: ‘I’m going to get a bike!’. And then we went out to the car and you were still bubbly happy. ‘I’m getting a new bike’. You’ve been waiting for this since your birthday in April, I think you might have worried that this day might never come. But today it did. Enjoy your new big boy bike my son 🙂

FIRST SWIM OF THE SEASON

A good friend visiting. A little barbecue planned, by the lake. A beautiful, although slightly windy day. Some time to spend together. No reason not to dip your toes into the water. The two of you dipped your whole bodies, I might add, I stuck to the dipping my toes thing. It was a bit cold, but not too bad (again according to you brave guys, my toes felt a bit chilly…). This was an afternoon well spent! Hoping to do it again soon 😀

THOUGHTS ABOUT THE PROJECT
Still loving the words + photos. So interesting to capture my days like this.
I really wish I could get Aperture to upload the photos to flickr in the right order. Drives me crazy!
It was so nice to spend some of my day with my mom.
I loved living on the west coast, but having family close is really a gem
(most of the time).
