I'm participating in Ali Edwards' annual Week in the Life documentary project, and here are a selection of photos from Friday!
I haven't done Week in the Life before, but I'm guessing that Day 5 is a tough one for more than just me: the newness of the project has worn off, people are kind of over having a camera around so much, and things start to look exactly the same as they did the day before, and the day before that... I didn't take as many pictures as in previous days, but that's OK. Still need to charge my battery before Saturday kicks off!
We woke up a little on the late side for a school day, mostly because there were clouds this morning—our house is normally streaming in blue skies and sunshine by this time, but today it was a bit on the grey, stay-in-bed-by-accident side.
I am working hard to make time to play piano every day. I'm working on the accompaniment to a Mozart Horn Concerto Maddie is working on for her lesson, plus trying to stay five steps ahead of Gracie and Bridget and their lessons. It's hard to believe that we traded in my old 300 ton reproducing upright for this one 15 years ago. (!)
After gym drop-off, Bee and I headed to the library. We check out about 15-20 picture books a week, plus a variety of jFiction/Young Adult fiction/Adult fiction. The jFiction/YA fiction collection is so much better than we've had access to the last two years—and if our branch doesn't have it on the shelf, the library courier fairies retrieve it for us quickly (and for free).
I'm experimenting with making a wall hanging to cover up a silly thermostat that is very annoying in its placement on a very visible wall. I don't exactly have a plan for how it's going to turn out, so we'll see. It could be very cool, and it could be a Craft Fail. Too soon to tell.
The irony is not lost on us when Gracie declares how much she loves her bed, going to bed, curling up in her bed, sleeping... there's hope for colicky babies everywhere, is all I have to say about that.
