this week is ali edwards' week in the life project. this is my 9th year joining in, and it's one of the best ways for getting a really great look at our everyday lives. even though all those years aren't in completed albums, they're some of my most favourite photos ever.
i wasn't sure if i was going to join in this week, or choose another week, as this week we have "bedstemor" (grandma) visiting from denmark. of course it's not our usual routine, but i decided to go ahead with it, as it's so much more fun joining in when other people are doing it too. instead of taking a gazillion photos like i usually do, i decided to focus on getting a few good shots of our everyday routines.
today i used my 50mm lens the whole day, which gives some different perspective in the photos than my usual wide shot.
7:30 - good morning cuddles with this little "mole", burrowing under the covers looking for her lost mummy and daddy. i can't believe we wake up so late now.
7:45 - shower time. after a whole week without water, i am so grateful that i can walk straight into the shower instead of boiling water like i did last week.
8:30 - i'm still drinking coffee, so isabel starts on her recorder practice. i'm so impressed with how well she's doing, and so is she.
20:00 - goodnight!
after putting the kids to bed i ran out of photo taking energy, but there's still plenty of week left. i made a real effort to get myself into the photos, and when i was saying goodnight to the kids, isabel said, "i like when you're in the photos with us. give the camera to far so you can be in the photos!". that's definitely something i'll be working on more during the week.
