The 12th of the month has come and gone, and that means that it’s time for 12 of 12 again. For 12 of 12, I take at least 12 pictures on the 12th of the month, in order to give a small snapshot of our lives. Then, I pick the 12 that I want to share in a collage. (Shh…this month, I barely managed to squeak by with exactly 12 pictures taken. Whew!)
1: Having gone to Mass on Saturday night, I spent all morning (literally) asleep. I took a snapshot of my iPhone screen when I finally rolled out of bed. Oh yeah, that’s right. 12:59 pm.
2: We just got a treadmill! Sure, it may not be the most beautiful thing to have in our living room, but we’ve been using it often. Even if each of us isn’t using it everyday, there has always been at least a few people to use it every day. Bonus!
3: Yum! Eric had taco salad fixings ready when I finally got out of bed. (He used this taco salad recipe, except he used very lean ground turkey instead of ground beef.)
4: Of course, here is the monthly temperature snapshot. It was a beautiful 73 degrees. (This is actually 13 degrees cooler than on May 12th.)
5: There was an awful lot of discussion on the 12th about the contents of my computer screen here. It’s a Fort Wilderness Cabin at Walt Disney World. Could the kids’ first trip to Disney World be in the future?
6 & 7: If I just told you that our garden was gorgeously green, you might be jealous. Don’t be jealous though — look at how green it is from weeds and grasses. Yikes!
8 & 9: We weeded and weeded. Then we weeded some more. I was glad that the kids are all old enough to help, though some were considerably more helpful than others.
10, 11, & 12: My babies, in their jammies watching a movie in our playroom. They needed the break after the busy day of weeding, and then shopping (no pictures!) for wood for their woodworking projects for 4-H.
Whew! I’m glad that I managed to have taken 12 pictures, but that was pretty close. I usually have a little more variety. But, I guess our day didn’t really have that much variety, though it was busy.
