Wednesday, May 8:
One afternoon, all the younger ones were busy playing Lego—such fun! (And I couldn’t decide which picture to keep, so you get both.)
Thursday, May 9:
The table next to my desk showed remnants of the day’s work: Time spent on some studies on American History, and my first handwritten letter in ages! (So much fun to do! I hope you get it soon, Marlène!)
Friday, May 10:
Our dishwashers. Such a fun bunch!
Saturday, May 11:
Building a shelf in the lean-to garage (for holding a car engine?). My brothers are hard workers!
Sunday, May 12—forgot about the challenge
Monday, May 13:
Our enthusiastic laundry sorter. I love this boy so much!
Tuesday, May 14:
Cake- and pie-baking, little sister style. It’s a good use of time when you’ve finished school, but everyone else is still working!
It’s been a fun challenge to try to remember to take pictures of each day—and it’s fun to look back on things that already are nearly forgotten! It’s the mundane and ordinary of life that makes up all those years we look back on…and how precious to have a few pictures to remember those moments by!
One interesting thing I noticed this week, as opposed to last week, is that it was a lot harder to remember to take pictures on the second week. Hence, several evening/nighttime pictures with not the greatest lighting. I remember noticing this before with other challenges—what is it about the second week that makes it so hard to keep up? During NaNoWriMo, if there’s one week where the going is especially hard, it’s the second week.
If there are any spiritual applications, they’re escaping me right now. I was away at work all day, and my brain is tired. It’s been very windy and rainy here today, with racing clouds overhead, and the sun peeking out for a few seconds or so now and then (“Look, guys, the sun is out! Look outside quick, because it might be the only sunshine you’ll see all day!”).
For now, keep pushing through those second weeks, and I’ll see you again next week.
What has your weather been like today?
