As I said, I’m really interested in documenting our everyday life. And this week, I’m going to concentrate on documenting our life. I’ve read about this project before on Ali’s Blog but this year seems like the perfect time.
It’s also a good week to do it. I really want to capture what life is like now before Cody starts his new job in two weeks. Things are sure to change- our morning, lunch, and after work routines will change at least some. He won’t be next door anymore but around the corner. But lots of things will change over time- our appliances, prices, etc and that part of this project really appeals to the historian in me.
I’ll work on capturing today all week. I’ve already noticed that I’m finding gratitude in the little things. I expect that this project will really help me appreciate our every day normal life. Today’s introit at church talked about meditating on God’s wondrous works. I think about Mr. Haas and how he talks about the marvel in each breath we take. I’m welcoming this opportunity take time to think of all the wonderful things in our lives- the little things we often overlook.
It’s fun to think about all the things I want to document and how to do it. I’ve already noticed though that I’m seeing things I hadn’t thought of that are just a part of everyday life- like being able to see Cody shave while I put on my make-up.
