Hour by Hour

Time is such a tricky thing. Sometimes it seems like the minutes drag on forever, at a snail's pace. And then other moments pass through my fingers like sand. I scarcely hold onto the moment, before it slips away.

So last Thursday I did a little experiment. Inspired by a post on "Jones Design Company", I decided to track my time through pictures.  I took a photo every hour for one entire day.




Hour by Hour: 
6:30am- Alarm at 6am. Showered quickly and made coffee. Lunches and breakfasts assembled. 
7:30am- Dropped off Afton at school while Maisy was at home with Jeff. 
8:30am- Cleaned bathrooms and kitchen. Then dusted. 
9:30am- Maisy had been playing Barbies so nicely while I cleaned. Now it was my turn to join in.
10:30am- Went to 'Open Play' at the Grapevine Rec Center. Maisy loves it.
11:30am- Ran to the Post Office on the way home. 
12:30pm- Lunch on the patio with Maisy. Then we sat by the pool and watched a caterpillar. 
1:30pm- Maisy napped. I completed Etsy orders and made something for me- Chevron headband!
2:30pm-Wake Maisy from nap so we can pick-up Afton from school.
3:30pm- Homework time- reading and spelling practice. 
4:30pm- Soccer practice for Afton. Maisy and I watch/play from the sidelines. 
5:30pm- Driving home.
6:30pm- Decided to do dinner out- no one feels like cooking tonight. 
7:30pm- Should be getting girls ready for bed, but we play outside and eat popsicles instead.
8:30pm- Girls are now asleep, so I work on my blog, answer comments, and emails.
9:30pm- Cut and sort labels for 'Samantha Conner Designs'- while watching tv with Jeff.
10:30pm- Eat a big bowl of Butterfinger Blast ice cream, I am running 12 miles in the morning:)
11:00pm- Bed time! 

It was pretty interesting to see an entire day summed up in photos. I realized I spend a lot of my time with my little family, which made me happy. And I also saw that I spend a lot of time in the car!

How would your day look? Even if you don't blog, give it a try. You might be surprised where your time is going. 

** Don't forget to come back later for "Cowgirl Up"- can't wait to see what YOU have been doing!

  2. It's always fun to peek into someone else's life, so thanks for sharing. I attempted a 365 project - and failed (although I'm still going, despite missing several days). I like the idea of an hour by hour project. I'll have to try it!
