Week In The Life 2012 | The Hair Cut

Week In The Life 2012 | Day #4

My 4th day was a Wednesday. Here is a little recap of some of what happened:

The weather today have been rainy. In the early evening I went out to capture some evidence in my garden. It’s not easy to see, but it is raining as I shoot these.

While outside I shot a few photos of my pots of Daffodils. They have been flowering for weeks now.

MT went to football practice tonight, I wanted some photos of him, but the rainy weather was too much to bring my camera out into. So I made him stand by the window to get a few photos of him once we got home. He wasn’t too happy about the arrangements – but let me shoot a few photos.

He could not help himself for doing a little playing. I was a little bit slow to catch this without the blur (it all happen in just a few seconds) – I love my 9 yr old, and this is a keeper (both the photo and the boy!).

MT took some time to figure out the drawing board I bough him for his new Wii. He found it more fun once he figured out how to do and spent quite a bit of time drawing away.

Right before bed he decided he was hungry anyway (isn’t that typical), so we made some food and while he ate I read to him from Harry Potter #4. Our evenings are running by so fast these days.

When he was finished upstairs, brushing his teeth and stuff, I read the rest of the chapter for him.

He was the one pushing the shutter button down to set the timer and he decided that he would face the camera and smile. Love when that happens!!

I’m often to be found by my mac book in the evening. Reading. Typing. Editing. Watching. Connecting. I love my laptop.

Me sitting by my work space. Not sure about the new hair cut, wish it was shorter. Feels like it is in that weird place in-between short and long. The place I really don’t love that much. Hm..

All these photos above is from late afternoon and early evening. During the day we were both at work and school, and no photos were taken. MT got home first and waited patiently for me to arrive. We made some easy food (pasta with homemade tomato sauce and minced meat, one of our staples), before MT had to run off for football (soccer) practice. I was tired after a couple of long days at work, and so glad the thing I was supposed to do in evening was canceled because of the rain. Thankful that something good actually came off all that gray and boring weather. 😉

What good things happened to you on Wednesday – or today?!
I’ll be back with more photos and words for Week In The Life shortly. Thanks for coming by!

Week In The Life 2012 | Day #3

Tuesday was work and school for us. From morning till almost five in the afternoon. I have not taken any photos of that. That is something I decided before I joined in on Week In The Life again this year: I’m not bringing my camera to work, I’m mostly happy about capturing the things we do together. The two of us.

So here is a few snippets from our day. I took fewer photos this day since we both spent so much of our day not together.

First something that happened while we drove home together. I asked how school had been and what they had done during the day. MT told that they had wafels at school – and then he suddenly remembered how his Great Grandma used to make us wafels – ‘and they tasted better than anyone else’s!‘ He haven’t spoken about her for so long and it was so nice listening to all of the other things that he loved about her. And I wholeheartedly agree with him that we miss having her around us (she died 3 years ago, 98 years old and I think it is awesome that he remembers her so well).

I decided this was the day to make a proper dinner. MT loved the thinly sliced carrots. I love the orange color. It tasted delicious and reminded me of dinners at home on the farm (not the carrots, but the other stuff).

After homework, playing Wii and spending some time outside with his bike. MT still had a few minutes before bedtime and he had nothing to do (that he was allowed to do, since he already had used up his Wii time) – so I challenged him to a board game. That he, off course, won. He’s good at those.

I loved all the sunshine/light that fills our living room at this time of year. I used a timer to put my self in the photos too.

Hope you had a few moments captured of your day as well! Happy snapping 😀

PS: I’m planning to get to bed a little bit earlier tonight than the two previous nights. I’m tired. It’s the smart thing to do. See you tomorrow!

Week In The Life | Day #2 2012

 Day #2 was a MONDAY. I love Mondays because they usually means I have the day off and MT is home early from school. It is a day for both getting things done and getting some rest + quiet. This day, however, I had to go to work, so I didn’t have as much time to run around and capture life as I had yesterday. But the moments I did capture were the big happenings of the day.

Talk and food when he came home from school. He was in such a good mood.

Even homework and math were easy to plow through today. I love any day like this, fighting over homework are not my favorite way to spend an afternoon.

After the food and the homework came the one thing he was the most happy about. Plugging in the Wii and getting to play. With some good help from me, he got it all ready and was super excited when he could turn it on and put the CD in the console.

Everything worked. And he even figured how to hold the control(s). Eventually.

This is so much more fun than Playstation’, he said. To be honest I liked what I saw myself and I am not a game player.

A little leftover 9 from Sunday. I intended to make a card to my kid for his birthday, but I never got around to it. Think this number will end up on a scrapbook page instead. Or maybe in the Project Life album?!

Love the orange and blue together!

So how was your day?
I was so sure I would have only a few photos, but am pleased to see that this project inspires me to pick up my camera and shoot a few frames when something is happening. I’m so glad about that, because my dslr camera have been collecting dust the last months – and I really do want to capture more of our everyday stuff. Like everyday..! And not all the photos have to be instagram, even though they are a fun and easy way to capture life.

If you want more Week In The Life inspiration, jump over to Ali Edwards‘ blog. Here you can see her photos from Monday.

Hope to see you tomorrow, for Day #3 of Week In The Life.
Already I can tell you there are less photos… Ahem.
