Saturday, WITL

Saturday was a busy day preparing for our dinner... here is how the day went...

 

Thoughts so far:

I am amazed at this project... It's been fun... eyeopening in some cases... I'm also happy with the stories I can document from it... but I'm feeling a bit down in that the week will be completed after today, not quite sure how to explain it... I'm starting to think perhaps there is something to doing "Project Life"... I found taking the photos easy, but now I'm also feeling a bit panicky that tomorrow I will be starting to do the scrapbooking part of this week as I haven't really organized that yet... who knows maybe the next week will be fine.  I will start to look at photos from Monday and print them off. I might not do any editing of the photos as I just do not have the time.

What about you? How are you feeling now that the week is almost complete and for some of you it is completed? Do you feel like you would like to do more?

Have a great evening!

Friday, WITL

Here are some photos from Friday... this is more usual to what my days are like...

I couldn't bring myself to stand in front of my dentist's office to take a picture of the sign...




 Have a wonderful Saturday!

Thursday, WITL

 
 
Thursday's photos... The battery on my camera was beeping as I was uploading these ones so that tells you how many photos I ended up with!

We had another wonderful day; walking around the Devonian Botanical Gardens... I did try my self timer with me on the couch when I came home but, I couldn't bring myself to post it! At least I know the timer works :) I did manage to get in some crafty time this evening, albeit a bit pressured as hubby told me two days ago he required 20 invitations for a retirement party at work by Friday! I did enjoy it nonetheless. I will share my process on another post.

Hope your Thursday was a great one! And how is your WITL coming along? If you are not partaking in WITL is there any crafty goodness you are up too? I would love to hear about it :)

Wednesday, WITL

Wednesday was a great day...


Some observations: I have less photos from today, I want to take less "posed" photos and I've noticed on Ali's blog and others regarding taking photos... setting the timer on the camera... I hope to try this in the next couple days...

Have a wonderful day and I hope you enjoy your view wherever you may be!

Tuesday, WITL

Tuesday in WITL was full of rain and baking... My mom is well known for her poppy roll and that was our focus for the day... here are a few snapshots of how are day was spent...

Marvin heading off to work...



We picked up a few groceries...

Grinding the poppy's...

 After all this hard work I needed a nap!


The nap was short as we needed to start preparing for dinner...

We decided to have someone come and look at the yard so we can decide how we would like to carry on with it...

Some observations... My mom is a very organized woman in the kitchen... before I was even finished something she already had the dishes in the sink and cleaned... Also, when we were at the grocery store I discovered some things about my mom that make me the way I am :)

Something I have been including with my WITL is the news headlines and what our discussion was...

There it is... another day...

Monday, WITL

I took lots of photos today! This is the first time I've done WITL, and I had lots of fun documenting and thankful for everyone not minding all the my photo taking :) Here are a few unedited ones I thought I would share.

First things first... Business needs to get done...


Breakfast time... love how I managed to get bokeh in this photo...
Some final preparation in getting ready for my parents stay...

I picked up mom and dad at Carmen's home...

We had a good laugh when my mom hopped in the vehicle and couldn't reach the floor with her feet, nor put the seatbelt on... I helped her out!


We had a lovely lunch outside on the patio... the weather was beautiful...

Much needed lawnmowing... done by yours truly...


Preparing the salad dressing for the salmon salad... All these photos and I forgot to take one of the prepared meal!

Dessert...

We finished the night off by watching "The Tourist" with Johnny Depp and Angelina Jolie.


Of course there is no routine this week with me being on vacation and my parents visiting... Today was lots of fun... Until tomorrow!

How is your WITL coming?
