Today was a full on work day. Work, work, work. 10 hours from morning to evening. I’m no fan of these long days, but this one could not be helped. I had a nice little break around lunchtime and went to fetch MT’s bike from the service. It stood most of the summer last year with a flat back tire and this year we wanted to get it fixed sooner rather than later; So MT could use it to get around faster (not that he doesn’t run fast enough). This bike has a history of flat back tires so this time I asked them to look carefully for anything that might cause it. They found a tiny nail, removed it, fixed the tire and charged us nothing. Win, win, win. MT tried it out once he came home and are excited to be using it m u c h much more this year!
Many of my photos today is from outside church and church offices as I went on with my day going from one meeting to another. We have a huge service with lots of youths involved this coming Sunday so much to prepare and send out information about. In the evening we had Sunday school for the kids in one of our rural congregations. We took it easy, this time we prioritized time to play and celebrate together.
After work I drove back to catch the last few minutes of MT’s second football match of the season. Sorry to have missed most of it, they played really well and won 5 to 1. For us rural living people it’s kind of fun to beat the city folks in sports. Quite a few of the other parents came by me to tell me how nice MT played, so good to hear, I’m glad many of them told him as well. Proud mama moment.
I’m also glad this day started with a photo of MT and ended with a photo of him as well. Some days we hardly see each other because of school, sports and my work – and most days he’s not happy to be in front of the camera any more either. Usually he’s up before me in the morning and finished with his breakfast before I start mine, today I captured him just before he got up after eating his daily breakfast of rolled oats + milk.
In the morning there were some frost on the ground and beautiful sunshiny weather. In the evening the clouds rolled in and the weather got a tiny bit warmer.
I took 58 photos, but many of them just different version of the ones chosen, I narrowed it down to 14 to share. It was another good photo day, loving this project of capturing our days for a week. I’ve taken a few photos with my phone as well, but I’m keeping those for Instagram uploads.
Thanks for stopping by my blog. Thursday is already well on it’s way around here, so far really calm and relaxing. I a little hour I’m off to work for my afternoon + evening work day. Hope your day is good!
