This week seems to be flying by. Here is a look at my Thursday.
6:16 am | Most days I start the day off with a shower. My alarm is set for 6:00. Today is took me a few minutes to make it from bed to shower.
6:17 am | Most days I step on the scale first thing in the morning before getting into the shower. I know a lot of people have mixed feelings about this, but for me it works. (I purposely take this shot after the number disappears, because obviously…)
6:42 am | Most days Stella eats cereal for breakfast. Some days I get it ready for her, some days Jason does. She hasn’t mastered getting it herself yet. Today she is eating when I come down from my shower.
7:28 am | Some days I take Stella to the bus stop, but most days Jason does. Today he has to run an errand in town before we go to work so I take her to the bus. We walk together holding hands three houses up the street to the bus stop.
7:30 am | Some days we get flurries while at the bus stop. Stella thinks this is awesome (I do not). She is laughing here about all the snowflakes in my hair.
7:35 am | Most days the bus arrives right on time and Stella loves taking the bus to school. We really like her bus driver too who is great with the kids.
7:44 am | Some days we need to gas up before the commute into the city. Today Jason fills up while I run in to Tim Horton’s that is attached to the gas station for a tea.
7:54 am | Some days we travel together to work. These days are my favourite because we get to talk and usually he does the driving.
7:56 am | Some days when we are travelling together I read a few pages of my book – I usually always try to keep whatever I am reading with me, because I never know when I might have a chance to get a few pages read. Today I read while Jason listens to the news radio station.
9:28 am | Most days I finish my tea when I arrive at the office. I really do savour that cup of tea in the morning.
10:39 | Some days involve reading paperwork at my desk. Today is one of those days.
1:08 pm | Some days (Thursdays) I leave the office late morning to go to my program in the afternoon. Today the group enjoys a lunch provided by the church where our program is held. I eat this delicious piece of carrot cake as slowly as possible enjoying every bite!
1:32 pm | Some days I have to leave the program early. Today I am going to a funeral of a client. My day job includes working with seniors many of whom have various health conditions, so this does happen.
3:39 pm | Some days I run errands before going to pick up Jason at his work and heading home. Today I stop at Winners to get a birthday present for a birthday party Stella has been invited to this weekend.
4:18 pm | Most days we are both so happy to be on the way back home. We usually take turns driving, but today Jason says he will drive home too. Love that.
4:52 pm | Most days we pick up Stella from daycare. Some days I do, some days Jason does. Today we pick her up together. She is always happy to see us and tell us about her day.
5:32 pm | Some days I let Stella have a snack\dessert while watching a bit of TV after supper. Tonight Jason had an appointment so we have a quick supper of leftovers and Stella eats well (a continuing battle) so I let her watch a bit of TV.
6:44 pm | Most days Jason or Stella feed Suka, tonight I do. He never lets us forget that it is that time.
7:27 pm | Most days this girl’s imagination is so so awesome. After coming in from taking Suka out I snap this shot of her playing and singing to herself in the living room. Again wearing that pink dress up skirt and her new Easter shoes that are too big. She calls them her ballerina shoes and likes to try different poses while wearing them.
And that wraps up my photos for Thursday. I definitely took less photos in the evening last night, but I like to think because this is a week long project I still get a good look at my week when I look back over the full seven days.
Each night as I edit my photos and post here I am so grateful for this project and the photos I got and so happy to be in this place right now.
