Another month down for the 12 of 12 project! Here’s what September 12th looked like in my world:
I was excited to use my new shampoo and conditioner that I bought at the grocery store yesterday. Yes, I get pumped over silly things like that. I love the smell of rosemary.
I worked most of the morning so I didn’t take any pictures. Then all of a sudden it was lunchtime. We had some fancy cheeses in our fridge so I had a plate of crackers, cheese, almonds, and some black seedless grapes for lunch. Tasty!
She had noodle soup and crackers.
He had pasta and grapes. He always brings a book to lunch.
My daughter worked with her math tutor most of the afternoon and my son worked on his homework for his history class. I helped him proofread his short paper, but he did everything else on his own so I was able to get some more work done. Once his assignment was completed, he got to surf and watch some silly video game bloopers on youtube.
After our tutor left, it was time for me to help my daughter with some of her schoolwork. I’m pleased with how much more independent she has been about her work this year. She spent about an hour working on Spanish and then we started a biology lab.
I went downstairs to get something and I was checking my camera at the same time to see if the last picture worked. Oops! Somehow I took a picture of my journey down the stairs. Well - it’s staying because I accidentally only took 11 other photos during the whole day. This is the only way I’m getting my 12 done. LOL!
My brother Zach came by for a visit (he now lives about 30 minutes away from me) and he washed his car using my hubby’s fancy power sprayer. He doesn’t like having his picture taken, but if you come to my house on the 12th, you better just deal with it because I’ve gotta get those 12 pictures in!
I invited him to stay for dinner and I was pretty proud of myself for whipping up some polenta with red sauce and sautéed zucchini without any previous planning. I had already sat down when I realized I needed a picture of the food. Riley grabbed the camera for me and shot an unexpected picture. I always hate getting my photo taken, but I’m so glad she did that because now I have evidence that I was part of this day also. The chili pepper apron was a Christmas gift from my Mom several years ago and it’s still my favorite apron. I wear it almost every day. I’d love to find some more in the same style.

After dinner, hubby asked if any of us had watched the Apple announcement. None of us had (too busy working!) so he pulled out his iPhone. I find it incredibly silly that we all sat at the table for an hour watching the show on his tiny iPhone. We have a few iPads in the house, you would think we would have watched on one of those! We all totally wanted a new iPhone after watching the whole thing – oh, and some earpods too! It was fun to “geek out” together!
I ended the day with a little Pinterest surfing.
This was definitely not my most stellar photography month of the project, but I’m not even worried about that. I feel like it was a very genuine representation of our day and I’m just happy to have another 12 tucked under my belt!
