For the past 4 years my friend Rebekah at SimplyRebekah.com hosts my favorite link up all year: A Day in the Life. The premise is simple, take a photo an hour every day. By the end of the day you have a photo album that is a snapshot of your life on that particular day in the year. You don’t have to have a blog or a fancy camera to make A Day in the Life album. I used my smartphone camera. Easy! If you decide to take them and share them online use the hashtag #1photoeveryhour.
I took these photos on Sunday, January 18th this year (the day before my birthday).
8:07 am – I woke up to my children fighting and my husband bringing the dog in from her morning walk. I love Sundays because I get just a bit more sleep than any other day of the week.
10:31 am – You read that right! My wonderful husband let me go back to sleep for another hour and a half! Woot! The writing on the mirror is our way of communicating with each other on days my husband works. If I have a reminder I write it in dry erase marker on the mirror because he’s out of the house by 4:30 am on work days.
11:54 am – Hubs and I are sitting down debating lunch options. Tuna salad it is!
1:38 pm – I’m hanging out with Mysterious at his social skills video game meet up. You can’t beat friends and video games!
2:44 pm – Writing a blog post (go figure) while Mysterious finishes up an epic Super Smash Bros. (affiliate link) battle with his social skills group.
3:35 pm – Picking up our foster dog, Sophie, from her adoption event. She had a potential forever family that didn’t pan out. We took that as a sign… so we adopted her! Are we crazy? Maybe. But we all love her and she’s so smart. We couldn’t imagine giving her up!
4:51 pm – My wonderful little Finale decided it was time to paint with his own poop… again. Yes, I said again. It’s an ongoing issue. But he’s fresh now after his bath!
5:23 pm – Checking the chickens’ water before the sun goes down.
6:24 pm – Having dinner. Pot roast in the crock pot. Yum!
8:04 pm – This was corn bread. It was so, so good. Sorry you missed it!
9:29 pm – The dog is asleep on my feet. Isn’t she precious?
10:12 pm – There’s always time for a little Saturday Night Live!
11:32 pm – Putting the finishing touches on My Favorite Gluten-Free Breakfast post.
12:34 am – I took Sophie out for her final potty break of the night. And it’s time for bed!
