Last Saturday (March 26) I decided to tackle project #2: Complete a Day in the Life scrapbook project. I’m not sure why I said scrapbook project because essentially I’m okay with these pictures not going any farther than this, but we’ll see where that gets to! Saturday seemed like a good day because I wasn’t going too far from home, I could have my camera out at the ready for everything. If you’re not a camera person this next sentence is going to sound weird to you. Saturday also seemed like a good day because I was really missing my camera and this gave me an excuse to use it multiple times during the day.
7:56 am Up at the crack of dawn for no real good reason I decide to make use of this fact and have the first load of laundry in the washer before 8:00.
7:57 am Ingredients are pulled out of the fridge for breakfast.
8:13 am A herb, mushroom and cheese frittata is ready to go in the oven.
8:26 am Ingredients for a marinated bean salad are drained and waiting for the dressing.
8:36 am Chopping up celery to add to my bean salad. I love how celery looks from this angle.
8:45 am My two most commonly referred to cookbooks – the netbook and a notebook where I write recipes from family members.
8:46 am My frittata has inflated awkwardly during the baking process.
8:47 am Ready to dig in!
8:50 am I do my first load of dishes for the day while my frittata cools off a bit.
9:33 am Chocolate chip banana muffin ingredients assemble around the mixer for our hockey windup tonight.
10:03 am Laundry is ready to be switched around.
10:18 am For the first time in ages I actually fold everything as soon as it comes out of the dryer and get everything hung up immediately.
10:48 am I take a blogging break and get caught up on some blog posts, recipes and Facebook.
12:17 pm Carol and I sit down to try and tackle the giant mess we started during the week when we decided we wanted to make a bunch of cards.
12:48 pm The towel load is finished and ready to be put away.
2:17 pm This cutie patootie shows up at the house to do some sword fighting.
2:19 pm Sword fighting is too much for Kayden and he crashes for a nap.
3:47 pm We ran into town for a few groceries and supplies for tonight’s hockey wind up, and I need supplies to make Teresa’s birthday cake tomorrow.
3:48 pm Meowing Miya wants attention…or food.
4:09 pm A little cracker, cheese and pepperoni snack before supper.
4:50 pm Honey Mustard chicken goes in the oven for supper.
5:44 pm I cut up the cucumbers and make the dressing for my cucumber salad to have with supper.
5:44 pm Tastes delicious!
5:56 pm Roasted asparagus, honey mustard chicken and cucumber salad, all ready to eat!
6:43 pm I continue to work on my cards while Carol gets ready for the hockey windup.
7:08 pm Twenty minutes later and I have four cards almost finished.
7:17 pm These two are not supposed to be in there!
7:19 pm I pull my make up out and start to get ready for the night.
7:27 pm Mascara is always last. My eyes look tired thanks to my 7am wake up.
7:36 pm All ready to go!
11:08 pm Having a great time with our hockey team at the wind up!
2:53 am Even the kitties are settled into their chair and ready for bed at this hour.
2:55 pm I take a minute to reflect on the day, crossing things off my never ending to-do list.
2:57 pm Good night!
