Today, I'm giving with you all a Sneak Peek with a few photos from my project a Week in the Life. I'm lovin' it...that I'm finding things that are routine and common and how they bring me such comfort...no matter where we may find ourselves. Here are a few of my favorite things:
Waking up next to DH every morning...spooning each other all night ;}
Waking up before the alarm goes off...what can I say...I'm a morning person and DH is not...lol
Making my bed every morning...YES...I really do love to make it...cause it sets up my day for me. AND I also love getting into a fresh bed at night...I love my 800 thread count, egyptian cotten sheets!
Stepping on the scale...a necessary evil...boy I wish it would stay at zero!
A cool shower to wake me up in the morning and wrapping my hair up in a towel...makes me feel chic!
Getting our vitamins ready for the day and drinking a glass of water with a couple of teaspoons of apple cider vinegar...the miracle worker for digestion, acne and so many other things.
Our sliding glass door off the kitchen...love all the sunshine that it let's into the kitchen.
The sound of DH eggs boiling on the stove...can't say as much for the smell when he peels them ;)
Brewing blueberry, green tea and making Emergen-C vitamin cocktails every morning.
Hanging the bath towels outside on my Italian drying rack...love the smell of towels hung up in fresh air.
Writing blog posts everyday and wearing DH's socks...cause my feet are always cold ;)
Telling DH to "have a good time" when he goes out for his daily walk...I think he's nuts...it's 100 degrees out there...NOT my idea of a good time ;)
Having fresh fruit, yogurt and granola parfaits for lunch...yummy!
Appreciating the air-conditioner in my car and that my hair is finally long enough to pull back into a pony tail for when I have to run errands...oh yeah!
Afternoon coffee...enough said!
Having DH working from home...everyday...we are so lucky!
Taking a coffee break with DH and catching up with each other. Even though we both work from home full-time...we are both so busy that we always enjoy meals and breaks with each other.
Fixing dinner...even if it's just re-heating left-overs, I prefer to cook all of our meals so that I know what we are eating.
Sitting with DH in our recliners while we eat and watching movies or the DVR...we gave up eating at a table a long time ago! Even we had a bigger house and loads of tables to choose from (we had four tables at one time ;) when it has been just DH and myself, we just enjoy eating together this way. When we travel we eat out at restaurants and it's always a special occasion then. Most nights it's a carpet picnic with wine and a movie...not making any excuses...it works for us!
Freshly popped popcorn and wine...while watching a good movie on our big screen TV.
Date night out with DH...with a pitcher of Sangria ;)
All right...time to put the camera away...DH has had enough ;)
My observations for this week so far...the big thing for me is that this has felt like a visual "gratitude journal" and it has reminded me of what is important and what NOT to take for granted. Even DH has some appreciation for the process and for the most part he has not tried to "duck" from my camera.
Looking forward to putting the album together next week. Fondly, Roberta
