Wednesday October 22, 2014 marked the return of #OneDayHH: our chance to post the beautiful and mundane moments of our day on Instagram. This is my friend Laura's brainchild and I loved doing it last year. This year proved to be just as fun, not only to share my own pictures throughout the day but to see what friends were posting. It was the next best thing to hanging out in person.
I don't have normal days anymore. Each day is different and the routines change as a result based on where I'm working and what I'm doing. It's strange to think about last year's #OneDayHH and how I was still nannying at that time. I'm glad I have a record of that day.
Here's what Wednesday looked like for me.
Sustenance. Also in denial about running low on Anniversary Tea.
Makeup. This is all I need.
Getting myself into trouble. I blame @jenrclapp. (At McKay Used Books.)
Boo: they're out of Pumpkin Joe-Joe's. I'll have to wait to try them until next year.
Yay: Ciabatta rolls, Salsa Verde, Pumpkin Spice Rooibos tea, and more. Bless you, TJ. Bless you indeed.
In case you haven't guessed, this isn't a normal day for me. Or is it? I'm in a transitional season and wear a few different hats work-wise. Right now I need to finish a blog post (book giveaway!) for tomorrow. #amwriting
I've been a dedicated NPR listener for a few months now. I swear it keeps me calmer when I drive. Also I know all kinds of random stuff.
Babysitting my niece- and nephew-in-love for a few hours. She's in ballet class and he's napping while we wait nearby. I feel like a pretend mom.
And then he decided napping was overrated. Fortunately, he is as pro-snuggling as his auntie.
Nothing strikes fear into my heart like hearing, "do you want to play a game?" But I'll do just about anything for this girl. #nieceinlove
I stop in at least once a week either picking up or returning books. Today was a drop off. #booknerd
Blog reading, writing, and OK YES Facebook.
I'm doing a Mastermind & Body Program through Stay At Home Yoga and while I don't do the poses as often as I should, I'm amazed by the improvement already in my posture and alignment. Love that I can do it at all at home or wherever I might be.
Making stir fry, washing dishes, and listening to TED Radio Hour. Maximizing time in the kitchen.
Some people end the workday by putting on yoga pants. I prefer to swap my contacts for glasses. On deck: dinner and E! News.
It usually doesn't take all day to read the newspaper. Looking forward to a lot of sitting, Pumpkin Spice tea, and candy corn tonight. Also conquering the crossword puzzle!
Crossword done. Now it's time to read in my favorite spot. All the other stuff can wait. My book club is discussing Pastrix on Monday, which is just the excuse to finally read it.
A few years ago my brain subconsciously decided if I couldn't share my bed with a man, I'd share it with books. Totally normal, right?
Thanks for sharing #OneDayHH with me. Goodnight!
