So September kind of got away from me and I dropped a few balls. To help you understand a bit, there were actually a few nights when I think I was asleep before midnight. Yes, it was that bad. So on Sunday as I happened to realize what the date was, I said aloud "oh geesh, I missed 12 on 12 this month!". It didn't even register for me and I had the 12th circled on our calendar too because that was the day Colin left for grade 8 camp. I was a bit distraught about my oversight (yes, missing things like this bother me) and Adam just casually said, "No worries mom, just do 24 on 24 or something!"
So I had a new plan. I would do it a week later, so it would capture the same day of the week and this is how 19 on 19 came to be!
Twelve photos on the twelfth day of the month following Ella's Take 12 photo challenge (for this month read nineteen photos on the nineteenth day). This month's prompt was to capture what our daily routines are which is appropriate in this month of getting routines back in order!
The morning started off as usual, with Neil long gone for work before the boys and I get up. After showers and getting dressed, Adam and I have a quick look at the Vancouver Sun (and I usually read it cover to cover later in the day) and Colin usually has a big bowl of cereal. Adam and I have a small breakfast and then we pile in the car for the short drive to the boys' high school where I drop them off on my way to work. Today was another amazing sunshiney day and I got out of my car with a happy mood in my heart ready to conquer what the day would bring. Work is always an adventure ;) I arrived home after work and love when I pull into the driveway and notice the boys have taken in the recycling tubs and garbage cans (that's a Wednesday thing). I came into the house to a new oven and the boys doing their usual afterschool thing - homework and playing Minecraft. Of course their stuff was spread out all over - backpacks, shoes and various skateboards. A happy reminder that they are home! After getting dinner going, I had a quick walk in the garden and noticed the quinces are near ready and the black cherry tomatoes are finally ripening. After dinner, the boys made their lunches and then Colin was off to soccer practice, Adam did his homework and I went for a walk with Sarah while Neil went back to work. I came home and tried out the new oven and made some blueberry scones for the boys' bedtime snack.
