5:30am -- I always set my alarm twice -- once for 5:25am and once for 5:30am. I've never loved waking up but once I'm awake I like the quietness of having some time to myself. Usually I start with grabbing my iPad and browsing my favourite internet sites -- blogs I like to read, checking e-mail, Instagram, and TimeHop, and, during baseball season, I spend some time on the MLB app.
6:10am -- I usually try to start working by 6am but I was a little late this day. I made coffee and did a bit of laundry. This is the normal start to my day. I pick my mug for the day based on how I'm feeling -- Do I wish I was traveling? Do I wish I could just stay home and read all day? Am I thinking about a particular person? How long until baseball starts again? These are all the various factors in picking out my mug for the day. Ha!
And I love walking on the trails in our city. This one goes from our house and gets me to uptown -- where the bank, the library, and our local grocery store are. I LOVE this trail.
One thing I love about working part-time is that I can do some of these errands during the day which allows us to do fun family things in the evening. That was my main motivation for doing groceries at this time.
My new menu planning pad isn't specifically for menu planning but it was the closest I could find. And no, I can't menu plan on an app.
I am the administrative assistant (including bookkeeping) for a small organization which does conflict resolution, leadership coaching, and change management, among other things. I work about fifteen to twenty hours a week. On days when I wish I could just sit around and read a book all day, I motivate myself to work by remembering that the extra income allows me to buy flowers or for us to do some extra traveling. Those are usually good motivators :)
This day I was drinking out of my Salty Dog Cafe mug and remembering our Southern Road Trip in 2015 when I got to meet some blogging friends! You can read about that trip here.
2:30pm -- I got home from the meeting and did some random stuff -- tidied the house a bit more, responded to a few work e-mails, read a little bit, and figured out the Scripture litany for Sunday. Rachel is reading Scripture for the first time so we'll see how that goes...
here) and after supper, Dave showered Rachel. Sam is at the stage of life where he wants to be ridiculous in pictures. It isn't at all annoying :(
And that was the end of my day. That tends to be a pretty typical work from home day for me. I love recording days in my life and how they have changed since the kids were little. It will be fun to see what a day in my life looks like in five years, if I'm still blogging then. After all, if you go here you can read what a day in my life was like just over five years ago. A lot has changed since then :)
