Week In The Life 2012 | The Daffodils

Today has been

Today have been good, demanding, tiering, nice, rainy, laughter, sorrow, early, late, alone, together, young, old – and a little bit too much (to be honest). So I will let the update for our Wednesday Week In The Life come tomorrow, together with the Thursday story.

I need some sleep. I’m not 17 anymore. I’m not even 30…

Hope your day was good! See you tomorrow.

Our Instagram 11.11.11

Our 11.11.11 was not a very exciting and unusual day, but it is sure to be well remembered. If I can figure out how – and if I can find some time to actually do a bit of work on it – I might have a video from our day to share as well. But not now. I’ve been shooting with both of my cameras today, both the dSLR and my iPhone. I’m in the middle of relocating my image masters from my macbook to an external hard drive, so I’m not able to upload any of the photos from my big camera right now. But the instagram photos are already at my flickr home so I wanted to share them with you all.  Tonight it is all about the instagram photos. Enjoy! And thanks for watching 😀

It's official. 11.11.11 is here :) And I'm late for bed.

Taken in the bathroom right before I went to bed. It was after midnight as usual. I am a night owl for sure!

11.11.11 at 11:11

So glad I nailed it :) I almost forgot, I had plenty of other things on my mind. (Glad I didn’t had to pick it down from the wall and stage the time to get it right!!)

11.11.11 What a cool wedding date! (and, nope, not mine!)

A couple got married in church today. They were excited about having 11.11.11 as their wedding date. I would be too.

Good Night Sweetie!

About time for him to go to bed. I should not have used the flash on this one, though, but his bedroom is kind of dark and he had switched the cameras without me noticing until later tonight.

A Night Time Favorite

And as usual, a perfect ending to my day with a cup of tea and some time on my macbook.

How did you celebrate this day?! I loved Katie’s mention of eating straight looking food for dinner today. Did you do that? I’m sorry to say that we did not manage to do it, though. MT had a friend over and they wanted taco for dinner 😉

Please jump over to One Day On Earth for more 11.11.11 inspiration, photos and words.

7 Good Things Today

1. I got up bright and early to attend a webinar with Katerina Kennedy for her class Your Life: Captured through the lens. I was not sure if i could manage to get out of bed at the crazy early hour of 3 am, but i did, and it was so much fun being there with the rest of the photo crazy girls, telling what we thought about the photos and hearing Katerina describe how she feels about them as well. I was so honored to hear what she and the others had to say about a recent photo I took of MT sewing on his Great Grandma’s old sewing machine. She pointed out a few things that could have been better, but also said so much nice about the things that were good.

2. Early this morning, in my email, I found a note that said I was one of the three lucky winners to the Christmas card making class Holiday Card Boot Camp 2011 with Jennifer McGuire and Kristina Werner. That totally made my day and reminded me that leaving a comment for these give aways (the ones I would love to win) every once in a while pay off 😀 So happy about that and can’t wait for it to start in the second week of November

3. I am excited for the new photo workshop with Katrina starting next week. It is called Exposure and is all about finding the right exposure for the light you are working in to get great photos. I so need to work on this and can’t wait to learn how to handle the reds and how to get the most out of the condition i shoot in.

4. Fall is in its latest stages here and we have had several days below zero. Most mornings there is a beautiful little mist of frost on the ground, some days more, some days less. I find it beautiful, but I don’t look forward to changing the tires on the car, it is a time consuming job. I should do it tomorrow, but I guess I will wait until Saturday because then I have to do it….

5. MT have started ski training again, so far without snow. He said it was fun because they got to run around the 1 kilometer path behind the school. I know for sure I would not have found that any kind of fun. The path is nice to walk, taking my time, but to run?! It goes up and down, up and down and up and down. Seeing me skiing there is enough to make even the most serious dude cry with laughter, sigh. I love that MT skis cross country like he was born with skis on his legs. I kind of envy him, but also love how much he enjoys it.

6. There are a lot of good plans going on in our church right now. One of those is a club for youths using one of my favorite hobbies to learn more about the Christian faith and the Bible stories. Can’t wait to join in getting this one off the ground.

7. Lastly let me tell about the beautiful sunset we saw while driving to the church council earlier tonight. It was all blue and several shades of pink + purple. It took all that i had not to stop and try to capture it with my iPhone. To try and catch the colors somehow.  But i had a meeting to attend to and was already running late!

So how are your days? Found something good and happy among all the everyday gray. Please share in the comments.
