I love this idea of documenting a week in your life. That idea is an annual one, but I like even more the idea of doing it seasonally. Our winter day is so very different from our summer day. I photo documented a week in our summer last year, and had every intention of doing autumn but somehow it didn't happen. In the middle of winter carnival craziness, I'm going to fit in week of our real life in winter. When I woke up this morning, I immediately didn't want to start today. Jack was sick, the house was a mess, I felt a grump, but, the whole point of this is to document my real life, so here goes.
Flute lesson for Lucy while Jack worked in his cursive workbook. He LOVES cursive, but hates to print.
Lucy and John gathered eggs and took a walk,
while Jack and I reread the story of creation, discussed and then watercolor painted the first three days. We had about 45 minutes to ourselves for this and it was really a magical moment between the two of us. There was understanding, reverence, beauty! In other words a Waldorf SCORE! Please let me hold this in my heart for some time when things don't go according to my well laid plans.
Heated up lunch kindly provided by a dear friend. Jack received a camera for Christmas and is now in cahoots on the "My Real Life" project.
I told Lucy I wasn't going to teach her to crochet till third grade, so she went, found a book and set about teaching herself.
Laundry and more laundry.
Yep, there I am again, back at the stove. I feel like I spend hours a day very close to that spot. Oh, I DO spend hours a day very close to that spot.
Now for some more crocheting and Downton Abbey. Not a bad way to spend a Monday night. My sweet lunch providing friend Sonia is also planning on documenting her week, so do check out her blog if you get a chance. Rumor has it there will be a convergence of our real lives on Friday.
