Everytime Ali encourages the scrapbooking community to document a Week in the Life, I want to do it, and yet I’ve never officially done it. Weird. I do SO LOVE seeing the image waves (blogs, Facebook and now Instagram) flooded with everyday life photos and I champion anyone and everyone in an effort to celebrate the mostly mundane and very ordinary aspects of our lives. My FIVE photos here are nothing compared to Ali’s amazing FIFTY, but, in the spirit of sharing, and not comparing, here are FIVE photos off my camera, the kind of photos I like …
Addie took this one. I’m in the habit of leaving my SLR on the island and she will crawl up, pick it up and actually do a decent job of snapping photos. There are generally 40+ unkeepables on the card, but there are invariably one or two that I keep. Not so much because I like them, but because this is what she sees, and because I wish I had a few more of this-kind-of-mom-photos of my own mother. Note: Loving this view of my fridge, with Kayce and Simon’s wedding announcement, the 2013-2014 school calendar (waiting to be filed) and the pick-up slip for Geoff’s shirts at Scollard’s Dry Cleaners. Bits and pieces of right now.
Loading the dishwasher. What I didn’t realize at the time is that this was the last time I loaded THIS dishwasher. The nice man from Sears, brought a new dishwasher today, and yes I realize that this is the second time in one week that I have referred to “the nice man from Sears” ha! We’ve been in our 7 years (the apparent life-span of modern appliances.) Loving all the touches of green that still make me happy in my kitchen.
Breakfast this morning. I used to detest eggs and now I LOVE them!
Addie started her new gymnastics class today. I love the crooked thumb that is her signature “I’m good!”
We said good-bye to two of our beloved nannies today (see my Instagram feed for more.) This is Darbi. She has been our awesome nanny this summer and she is leaving and going back to BYU-Idaho. Love these silly kids and their silly poses.
Life is good, especially in it’s nothing-special-here moments.
AND, can I just say that I’ve had this post open all day and it is now after 9:00pm. It’s ok, I’m STILL on track for my 30 Days of blogging!
