I found out about this from Meg, of Ocean Wide Designs, and I thought, hmmm, I can do this! I can take a picture, a few, all day, of how my day is going, for a week. I mean, shoot, I do it daily anyway, with Photo a Day and my Project 365. So, I’m just going to be taking more pictures.
Then half the day went by and I went “Um, have I even taken one picture?” I had, but not that many!
Hey, at least I had something, right? This was for the Photo a Day challenge. My town, or something like that. It’s a book. Based in Topeka, written by Topeka writers (including myself), and sponsored by the Topeka Shawnee County Public Library. I can’t get more “my town” than that, .
I spent a good chunk of the day, glued to character sheets and the internet. I have to get that NaNoWriMo prep going, because if I don’t, I’m going to end up with one crappy story. I need to win again!
One way I’m going to be able to achieve that win is through the sprints. My friend Mel runs them, and I’m a volunteer. I’m pretty much in chat all day, every day now. Helping other people prepare, and all that good stuff.
Waiting for the bus. This is a daily occurrence. Though this week, ironically, it won’t be. The kids have a 4 day weekend. Parent-teacher conferences, and the setting up for a new grading quarter. In fact, tonight, I have parent-teacher conferences for both kids. I love that the teachers work together on figuring out a schedule so parents don’t have to come back several times if they have more than one child.
Madison is a Junior in the Girl Scouts. Harvester’s had an opportunity to celebrate Juliette Low‘s birthday, by giving back. The girls have a chance to get a badge, as well. they also, as you can tell, got cupcakes. I’m so proud of how well the girls behaved.
Madison did so good. She didn’t complain and she didn’t whine. We had a couple issues with some of the other girls, but on a whole, they did absolutely amazing. They showed how Girl Scouts are supposed to behave, and they learned something very important: they’re very lucky to have what they have. They might not have everything they want, but they have all that they need, and then some extras, which is so much more than what some children have.
Such a great group. I’m honored to be working with these girls, to be a part of this organization. I’ve met some absolutely amazing girls, and their moms are just as awesome. And see the tiny one of the hip? That’s one of my Daisies. Her sister is teh solitary Brownie in the group.
And the reason for this picture? I hadn’t planned to go to Harvester’s. Nope, not my plan. So I left my keys in the truck. Unlocked.
I come back? My keys were still in the ignition. The doors still unlocked. Oh crap. Did I really do that? I had to share with Becky, whom I rode with. She responded back with “Only you, Sarah, only you.”
