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!


Week In The Life | Wednesday


My breakfast: A couple of slices of the bread above topped with cheese.
My morning: Working on yesterdays photos and words. Washing dishes. Washing clothes.


My coffee: Enjoyed in the garden. With sunshine and a book (about farming)
My afternoon: We ate dinner outside. Pasta with meat and red sauce, MT’s favorite meal. We got ice cream for dessert from my mother. I smiled watching our dog and my mom connecting.

My early evening: Spent in the forest. We picked blueberries.


My kid: Helped a little. Then he went on to watch the dog and snapped photos with my camera. I love it when I picks it up and I love to see what he frames. The last one is my absolute favorite (all these photos below are taken by MT, but edited by me):

My late evening: Helping my dad on the computer. He needed to send in a form of sorts. Cleaning the blueberries and getting them in the freezer while listening to Elise Joy’s podcast. Watching the early bedtime slip away and my finger tips turning blue.
