Extras: Seven prompts to take a picture at a specific time and day of the week.
Saturday 10am (09/21/2013)
Getting ready to go to Georgia's first ringette ice time.
Thursday 5pm (09/26/2013)
Representing what I was doing on Thursday at 5 pm (and every Thursday for 8 weeks): coaching/demonstrating in a Dale Carnegie class. I can't take pictures while I'm there, so this will do!
Wednesday 12pm (10/02/2013)
Eating lunch at my desk at work (hence the plastic container). Neil made a nice salad for me!
Friday 8pm (10/11/2013)
I had just dropped off Madeline and Georgia and was looking for a parking spot. Fun store. :)
Monday 8am (10/21/2013)
I start work at 8:00 am and this was the first day for my company to be using Google for email and calendar. I volunteered to be a Google Guide to help others with the change.
Sunday 3pm (10/27/2013)
I was watching my 10-year old play ringette this afternoon. She has the ring in this picture. (And she had two goals and one assist in this game!)
Right now (surprise prompt) - Wednesday 5am (10/30/2013)
I saw this prompt just before heading out to deliver papers with Neil. He was taking the papers to the van and this was the last bundle on our step. We deliver 132 papers six days a week. Good start to the day - fresh air and exercise!
Ringette sticks and hair accessories. Both are used often but not at the same time!
Other than photos and food, I haven't created much lately besides this website (and the business, with Neil). I've spent many hours on it and have learned a lot in the process, so I'm glad to capture this piece of my everyday.
Neil may have enough Roughriders shirts for every day of the week. Certainly one of his affections!
Wearing my new winter coat (which is not black for a change!), gloves, and seat belt. Shot with my BlackBerry and framed in Analog (Mac).
Georgia and her doll, Gato. I bought an Uglydoll for each of the girls 4 years ago this month (October 2009), and they've been very well loved.
A favourite sweater when I need to warm up.
I sipped all of my coffee in rinks today (10/26/2013), as all 3 girls practiced or played ringette before 2:00 pm.
From September 16 to October 27, I received prompts for capturing my "everyday" in photos. This was part of the BPC workshop, Picture Everyday, with Tracey Clark. I had little spare time during these six weeks, but I'm so glad I made the effort to get these photos! There are seven posts in this series.
Theme 1: Routine
1. One of the first things I do is put on my shoes. Neil and I deliver papers six days a week. 2. Dash brought us a shoe and then laid down with it. 3. I make oatmeal-quinoa porridge every Sunday and enjoy it all week long.
It's me; this morning (09/18/2013). Taken with my 50mm at arm's length.
Eating at my computer is a daily thing for me - at work or at home; sometimes both in the same day.
I'm glad to have captured this; I often serve sliced apples and cheese to my girls. It's a good snack and they ask for it.

Georgia slept in my bed while I got ready for work one day this week. My girls used to crawl into bed with me often, but it's rare now. I'm glad I thought to grab my camera!

To laugh often and much;
to win the respect of intelligent people and the affection of children;
to earn the appreciation of honest critics and endure the betrayal of
to appreciate beauty, to find the best in others;
to leave the world a little better;
whether by a healthy child, a garden patch or a redeemed social condition;
to know even one life has breathed easier because you have lived.
This is the meaning of success.
- Ralph Waldo Emerson
