PL2014 - Week 37

I still haven't managed to get my week in the life stuff sent off to be printed. It's ready to go at least. At this time of year, my head begins to fill with all the things I want to do and accomplish...I have so many project on the go it seems. I need a few all-nighters. But right now, that is the farthest thing from my mind. By 10:30 pm these days, I can hardly keep my eyes open. I kind of hope that isn't the new normal...

Here is week 37 of my project life:

This week: As school got into full swing again, so did my job as volunteer coordinator for the school, thankfully I have a counterpart. But it's a huge job with a school of nearly 700 kids. We had a freak storm. Got to have my first lunch with a grade 7 boy. Miss Madelyn in her timed ringette evaluations. The kids and the dog at Nose Hill.

PL2014 - Week 36

I have some bad news. Winter has arrived. Just like that. One day it's 17° Celsius and we were marveling about the temperatures, and the next its snowing like crazy. And snowing. And snowing. Sadly with the snowing comes the dropping of the temperature.

We went out on Saturday night, and came home to wet snow. The wet snow, then turned to ice, as it often does when temperatures plummet. I retreated into the house for 2 days. Not to emerge. At all. Poor Libby. And poor us with Libby. Having a dog that needs to go out, certainly changes things up a bit. Not to mention that she LOVES the snow, and could care less about the significant dip in temperature... It will only be a matter of time, until I need to trudge out into the yard to do a puppy rescue. She doesn't know what her limitations are. I hope this won't last all winter. Here she is, crying at the back door. Wanting out. And don't get me wrong. We let her out. A lot. But it's the drying off thing that is most challenging. Because the back door is also in our kitchen. My next house will for sure have a mudroom.

Any way, I did sort through my week in the life pictures and create pages. That's what cocooning yourself inside will do. I have to send them off to be printed, which I intend to do at good old Costco. I went with a 6x8 size, and will have a mixture of 6x8, 4x6 and even some 3x2's.

I have used Persnickety prints in the past, for all my scrapping stuff, and the shipping to Canada, though very reasonable at first, got silly. Therefore, I'm looking once again for other options.

Here is my week 36 layout, for project life:

Week 36 saw the Labour Day Parade in Cochrane. Crazy cousins sticking spoons to their noses. The first day of school. Ringette evaluations beginning. A certain grade 7 boy, getting cell phone. A girl guide bottle drive, and a bewildered puppy. [Where does everyone go all day long?]

PL2014 - Week 35

I can't believe that it's already November. I keep saying it, and I keep meaning it, I don't know where the time goes.

I participated in Ali Edwards a Week in the Life last week. Love that project, on top of Project Life, to really take a closer look into our days. I need to download and sort through pictures, and then I will be able to share that.

For now, here is week 35:

This was the last week before school went back. A trip to the zoo with the kids and Ama. Hosting my clothing club girls. [What I didn't get a photo of was the awesome Sangria I made and served that night] Tunnel shot. Miss Libby in puppy class. [She wasn't overly happy about being there] A day trip to Banff.

This page is kind of photo heavy. I wanted to include multiple photos of our outings, with out adding more pages. Since I did a collage in the upper left corner of our zoo trip, I thought the collage in the bottom right corner, of our Banff trip, kind of evened things out. I'm happy with how it turned out.
