Thanks to Rachelle for giving me a more appropriate name for my photography project this year. I’m really enjoying having this challenge to use my camera every day. This is part of my creating Time for Mom in a way that has the potential to include my kids, too. A couple of times this week, Megan pulled out her camera, too.
What have you done this week to make time for nurturing your creative side?
4/365: I love when the UPS man brings fun stuff! I haven’t had much opportunity to really use my Christmas present to me, but it was fun using it to get to the mall last week. Yes, we’re ignoring the fact that I could drive to the mall with my eyes closed.
5/365: X marks the spot where the Christmas tree stood. I wound up taking it down with some help from Josh since Brian was still sick with the flu and I couldn’t take it anymore. It’s the first time I’ve ever disassembled the Christmas tree. Have I ever mentioned that it’s a huge, 9-foot tall monster?
6/365: Saturday morning breakfast. Saturday is the only morning I fix breakfast and we go all out – usually eggs, bacon, hash browns and either buttermilk pancake, waffles, or biscuits. This last week it was waffles, which I haven’t made in awhile. Yum!
7/365: I’m determined to get back into couponing and saving money at the grocery store, which I used to do really well, this year, so I spent time Sunday clipping coupons.
8/365: Our first day back to school on Monday involved some reading in the “school room” with a couple of the other “students” (Dad and one of the dogs were curled up in the bed, too).
9/365: Hey, Liv dolls need an education, too.
I had fun. I know some of the photos are pretty pitiful, but I’ve enjoyed finding things to take photos of around the house. In the past, my attitude has been, “We’re not leaving the house; there’s nothing here to take pictures of,” excluding unwilling kids, of course. I’ve enjoyed the challenge of looking at things through more creative eyes.
What hobbies have you enjoyed this week?
