A bunch of scrapbookers and photographers chose to capture their life as it occurred yesterday on 9-09-09. I thought it was a neat idea but wanted to have a unique take on it. I've been wanting to play with the polaroid-like images that have become popular again but I don't have a small camera nor did I want to spend hours editing photos to make them look like polaroids. So, what I chose to do was to put the good camera away for the day and document my day with my camera phone and then simply frame the photos with Katie's Instamatic Frames at Designer Digitals. The photos are blurry, tinged with yellow and I love them. :)
My day started with driving the kids to school as I most always do. And, yes, I took the picture when the van was in park. :)
It was the first Parents' Association meeting of the school year and since I didn't want to photograph the other mothers or board members without their permission, I photographed my coffee cup on the media center table.
And then home again to walk the poor crazy puppy who's still trapped in his crate. (Please cross your fingers for Sawyer - I'll be out of town with him all day today having the surgeon decide whether Sawyer gets released or not!)
I met my sister-in-law for a quick lunch at Olive Garden - a lovely indulgence that we try to make time for every couple of weeks. Can you say breadsticks? YUM!!
A quick jaunt into Jo-Ann's for some thread. I ran out during quilting Tom's UT quilt the night before. Ack!
Then it was back to school to pick up the kids! I love that all three of them always run towards me when they see me. :)
Home for a snack of grapes and time for homework.
Emily grabbed some orange juice and gave me the thumbs up sign when I reminded her to start her homework.
With all 3 kids working on homework, I grabbed my laptop and checked in with Designer Digitals - my home away from home. :)
Cooking dinner with spaghetti sauce partially made from tomatoes grown in our own garden. It was absolutely delicious!
Emily's new love is folding laundry. Yes, I'm not kidding. She has learned to do laundry and asks all the time if she can do laundry and fold it. Here, she asked to finish folding the laundry on the den couch while I was cooking dinner. And I'm keeping it real - including photos with closed eyes is okay!
Tom commutes back and forth from work much of the time on his bike. He arrived just in time for dinner tonight.
After dinner and a shower, Tom took the kids on a bike ride.
My view while Andrew took a shower. Love that he is fairly self-sufficient in the shower at only 6!
And, finally, the kids were all in bed and I headed to the couch with my laptop and Photoshop. One of my favorite places to be. :)
If you've documented your day, please leave me a link. I'd love to see what you did!
