A Day in The Life: August 2021

It has been quite some time since I wrote a day in the life post! The last one I wrote was in January, and the one before that was about a year ago, in August 2020.

It always surprises me how much my day changes over the course of a year or even a few months, so these posts are always fun for me to write and look back on!

Tuesday August 24th, 2021

6:10 am I wake up just as I hear Jimmy leaving for work. I usually like to wake up with him sometime between 5:00 and 5:30 but I never set an alarm and just wake up when my body (or the pets or Sadie) wakes me.

I pour a cup of coffee, grab my Bible and devotion book, and sit on the couch. Aaaand get back up just a few minutes later. I kick myself for not waking up earlier šŸ˜‚

6:17 am Sadie is awake. It’s too early for her to be up but she’s crying so I go into her room and get her. We hug for a minute and then head out to the kitchen to make breakfast. While I cook pancakes (for myself) and eggs (for Sadie), we play with her stamp set.

Sadie doesn’t eat her breakfast, so Niva gets a gourmet snack of scrambled eggs! I clean up the kitchen after breakfast by putting away clean dishes from dishwasher, changing out kitchen towels, and wiping down and sanitizing the counters.

7:00 am It’s baking time! I have a few orders for my Etsy shop today: two loaves of challah and six bags of granola. Sadie somehow drags her kitchen set out from her bedroom to the kitchen (aka across the whole house!) so she can bake right along with me.

The kitchen floor quickly becomes a disaster zone, but I feel like Sadie is happiest when her toys are just strewn about so I let her do her thing.

A Special Party, Baking, and Gardening

Hi! I feel like every time I post here I’m like there’s so much fun stuff going on! But it’s true lately. Some stuff has been big (a gender reveal party!) and other stuff is just simple everyday moments (hanging out with our zoo, baking, reading, etc.).

So, let’s talk about the gender reveal party. My friend did a blood test to find out the gender of her baby and asked me to bake a colored cake that their dog could eat so they could find out the gender as he ate it. So fun!
