Saturday Snapshot: A Day in My Life

Yesterday, I participated in an Instagram challenge hosted by @kristinagrum to document an entire day in my life. Using the hashtag #fulldays, we shared a photo just about every hour of the day. I thought it would be fun to share my photos today with Saturday Snapshot, which is hosted by West Metro Mommy Reads. Enjoy!

8:00am - Kids are up and eating, getting ready for school.

 Starting my workday in my home office with some coffee and a brand new to do list.

On Friday mornings I volunteer at the school doing a literature circle with second graders.
We're reading Bunnicula.

Work, work, work.

Lunch break! Ham and pickle on a sandwich thin with Goldfish and seltzer.

Worked on a blog post (this one!!!) during lunch.

Still working away. This is the view out my office window.
Trees are getting their leaves and the pine pollen is collecting on the pond.

Walked through a swirl of pollen to get to the bus stop. I could feel it in my lungs!!

5:00pm - Work is done so it's time to read!

8:00pm -  Spent the past 2 hours at Carrabbas and forgot to take pics! Now listening to this guy practice piano.

Got one kid to bed. The other is camping with dad. Checking out Facebook before settling down with my book!
 
Decided I needed a change so started Me Before You by Jojo Moyes.

11:47pm - Just one more chapter ...

At 1:10am, I finally stopped reading and went to bed!! That one more chapter turned into five, which is pretty typical. This was a lot of fun. I'm so glad I joined in yesterday and plan to do something similar again in the future.

If you're on Instagram, come follow me and I'll follow you back!

  5. What an interesting project. The photo that most hit home was your son at the piano. Looks just like the piano etc that are right behind me.
