Sunday – Week in the Life

Sunday – Week in the Life

Our day started with a sleep in. We both took advantage of that! So much so, on my part, that I had to eat my breakfast in the car as MT and his mates warmed up for their last match of the tournament; I didn’t prioritize time for food while still at home, I’d much rather spend another 10 minutes in bed.


I brought my coffee as well and enjoyed listening to Tsh Oxenreider‘s new book: At home in the world while I waited for the match to begin. A good start too my day.


MT and the boys ended up winning their match 2-0, it was so fun to see they play so well together and I was so busy watching the game + chatting with the other mom’s that I almost forgot to take photos. The one I took isn’t good at all, but it’s what it is. He’s a runner, my kid.

Afterwards MT caught a ride with one pf his friends and headed back home while I went to work.


I had lots to prepare and think through before our service at 5 PM. Each of our 47 youths in this year’s Confirmant class had their own task in the service; some read, some brought in flowers and some knelt during the Kyrie Eleison prayer (and a lot of other small and larger tasks). They all did such a good job, I’m so proud of them.


I was tired by the end of the day. So glad to drive back home knowing that tomorrow is my weekly day off.


I read a few blogs and relaxed after a really busy week, so did MT. I made us some popcorn and we both watched a few videos on You Tube on our different screens.


My seedlings seems to be doing good. I’m afraid I’m a little bit late with both the chili and the tomatoes, but we’ll see. Hoping for some produce this year around. Note to self: keep watering them! Next I have to start the kale, I think I have at least four different kinds that I want to grow this year. #gardeningdreams

Thanks for stopping by my blog. This has been a busy and good week, so glad I have it documented here. Now I have to figure out how to build the album. I’m taking my time though.

Week In The Life | Sunday


This day started out by the lake. First we attended an outdoor service, then we lingered there. The sunshine warmed and the view is one of my favorites!

MT had a fun time watching the guys trying to sink the floating deck by being too many on board at a time. They did get wet, but the deck is still floating.


MT captured me with my phone open. Most days I use it to capture the small and big things that makes up our life. This week I’ve brought with me my big camera (the dSLR) as well. It has been a good photo-week. I really want to keep taking both cameras with me, if not for every small thing, so at least a couple times a week. I love my phone-photos, but most days they can’t compare to my big camera. I also love how MT more easily are picking up the big camera to capture something he sees, than my phone (although he sometimes will do that too).


The water was quite warm, but I could not convince MT to take a proper swim. I even said we could go a place with less people and deeper water. But: no. So then we waded in the water. First me (top photo), then him.


When we got back home MT wanted to go play football (soccer). While he was away I found a book and a cup of coffee and found myself a place in the sunshine. I’m desperate to soak up every moment now that summer is at it’s last leg around here and my vacation is over.


In the evening my mom invited us over for supper and my brother and family came as well. After food and coffee we enjoyed the outdoors and a few of us (me sometimes, but mostly MT, my niece and my brother) threw a Frisbee around with lots of smiles and silliness.

We’re all so busy at times, so it felt good to spend some hours with each other. To laugh, talk and just being together. Connecting. Being updated a little on each others life.

Late evening we got another beautiful pinkish sunset. Good night!

At the beginning of this week I decided that one of the things I wanted to capture was ‘where I stand‘-type of photos. For some reason I love those kinds of photos, almost as much as I love taking photos of my coffee mug. Almost. I’m glad to see that the photos from today was me standing with my bare feet – first in the lake; then this evening: in the grass. I love the summer season and bare feet is a summer staple – and favorite – for me.


Thank you so much for coming by my little online world today and this week!

I’ll be back with more posts next week, but I’m not sure if I can manage to work on the album just yet. It’s start-up season at work, so that will need some attention from me – and the harvest season on the farm have just started, still plenty to do before we can see the end of that. I’m happy to have gathered the photos and put down some words here on the blog. That is a really good start on this project.

It’s been fun!
