Number of photos taken: 122.
Today, I was really happy I kept going with the project, after a day or two of not knowing exactly what to capture. Ali had a great comment about how Wednesday is often the day people either give up, or find their groove. She encouraged people to not give up.
Wednesday wasn’t the day I found my groove. But maybe Thursday was. So I’m glad I stuck it out.
I’m not quite sure what words I have to go with these photos. I’m so glad I captured them. They’re a lot of typical normal life stuff for this time in life.
Great lunch dates, sitting in my cubicle, my new phone, my notebooks. The details are always changing just a little bit. Such a little bit I barely notice it’s happening. But I love that I captured it in this exact transition, because a week or several years from now, it could all look different.
Today included pumpkin carving. I realized yesterday that Halloween is this week. So my grand plan to carve pumpkins this coming weekend fell short. Worked out perfectly that the farm stand near the apartment had plenty of fine pumpkins to choose from.
Pumpkin carving is something I can get carried away with. It’s one of those projects I love getting ready for, but then I determine that it has to come out just so, and two hours into it, I’m frustrated and bored and over it. Today, I picked one of the five simple patterns we had, and dove right in. It was perfect — in its imperfection and simplicity and pure fun.
Today included scrambled eggs for dinner at 8:30. And, to me, it captures this in between of vegetarian and non-vegetarian. Buffalo chicken with lunch, soy bacon with dinner.
Today I got back to Netflix and worked on table numbers for an upcoming wedding.
And P. shared the most hilarious list I’ve seen in months. I was laughing out loud in the kitchen for minutes.

And today wrapped up with baking brownies (and eating batter) for the work Halloween party.
I was ready to snuggle up on the couch, but I’m always that person who forgets it’s party day and shows up empty handed. I know. At least I’m on the right track with preparing brownies for tomorrow’s event.
But I might be sharing middles only. We both fight over the corners, so Halloween came early for us.
