15 photos of my day on the 15th of the month
On the 15th of every month l share 15 photos of my day. It's a great, easy-to-achieve memory keeping/photography prompt, which encourages you to take a fresh look at everyday life. At first you might wonder what on earth you will photograph, but as you snap away something really marvellous happens.
The process of recording, reflecting and sharing moments of your day is a an opportunity to see your everyday life in a new light. You see the beauty and the goodness and all that you have to be grateful for.
I first started taking 15 on the 15th mid-last year and like most projects that elevate the everyday, have found it really rewarding. You can see my photos from previous months here.
The 15th of October was a Wednesday, another normal weekday where Dan and l went to work and Bella went to school. So a day filled with everyday activities, nothing out of the ordinary, but plenty to be thankful for.
We awoke this morning to discover a letter from the tooth fairy.
And here she can sit for up to an hour in the morning, ever so slowly eating her breakfast!
Meanwhile l'm downstairs feeding the animals and notice the light hitting my flower garden.
And the early morning light in the trees.
And here are our chicks, four weeks old and definitely going through that awkward looking stage.
These guys are always ready for breakfast.
When Bella does finally finish her breakfast there is usually a little bit of time to watch tv before getting dressed.
It always feels like a minor miracle to get out the door on time, but here we are in our school uniform with our bag packed.
After dropping Bella at school, l head here, my office. This is where l spend the next seven hours.
And it's been a big day, check out all that highlighter. That's what it looks like when you smash your to do list!
When l get home Bella was keen to fill me in on the latest with Secret Sisters. Secret Sisters is a little club the girls in Kindergarten have created. Apparently they hold meetings in a quiet part of the school garden, and today they welcomed a new member. So cool.
Did l mention my husband is a butcher?
Bella is almost six and a half, so that makes it time to create a new mark on the wall.
At the end of a busy day l get to put my feet up and watch some tv. You can't go past David Attenborough.
And because it's Wednesday, before l go to bed l check that this week's Reconnect with Nature post has gone live with no problems.
