A Week in the Life...
Day by Day...
Creative people all over blogland participated last week in a project called "A Week in the Life," originated by the ever-inspiring Ali Edwards. The idea was to document your normal, everyday life in photos...and to write about all that "average" stuff that goes on in those pictures. And beyond that, you document your photos and your experiences in some sort of creative fashion (typically, in an album of some sort).
(Go HERE to read all about the cool project!)
Well, in typical Cheryl Fashion, I'm grabbing hold of this idea just a little bit late. But, someone famous (not sure who!) once said, "Better late than never! So, I'm going to be doing my "A Week in the Life" this week.
Each evening, I will upload my photos and thoughts from each day. And I'm really looking forward to it!
I will be doing it from Monday through Sunday.
If you feel so inclined, why don't you join with me? I think it sounds like a really creatively-freeing activity and, besides, I love to peek in on other people's lives (LOL). And, additionally, you can be fashionably late on the project...just like me!
So...those are my plans for my blog this upcoming week. I hope to see you here during that time!
And now, how about a few thoughts from this weekend?
~ After getting the great news about my friend Debby on Friday afternoon(read the previous post to read all about it!), I was in one of those "skipping-around-lighthearted-and-happy" moods. I cooked supper, sang and danced in the kitchen to my favorite Abba CD, and just felt good about life!
~ My greatest college football allegience is, of course, to Alabama. But the team that is second in my heart...Texas...won big this weekend. Since Bama had the bye week, I celebrated with the Longhorns instead (they beat #1 Oklahoma!) And, do you know? I pretty much lazed around and watched football all Saturday long; it was NICE!.
~ I am almost done with Water for Elephants and it is SO good!
~ I am working on a book about writing (right now, scheduled to come out in June 09) and I actually got my chapters laid out and started working on the introduction.
~ I almost finished up two albums from Delaney's World Series. (Since this was back in July, it's about time, huh?)
~ But the best time was...
our Backyard Camp out.
Sydney announced to Gary last Thursday that we needed to lie on the ground and watch the stars "and those stars that make shapes up in the sky." He said, why don't we take it a step further? Let's get a tent and have a camp out in the backyard? Sydney was all over that idea, and she actually slept all night in the tent (Gary did too...although I was back inside by midnight!).
I did, though, enjoy Smores (Is there much of anything better than those?) and scary stories with them (Sydney's told an impromptu story about a skeleton, complete with flashlight under her face; it was too cute!)...
I hope you all had a great weekend!!
See you this week...for my "A Week in the Life."
