A Day in Photos // December 2015

Hello, everyone! For the last A Day in Photos post of 2015 I decided to take pictures of my day on Monday.

And I think I picked the most uninteresting day to take photos this month. I thought it would be a good day to do so–it was the first day Christmas break, so I thought I’d be able to share some pictures of something other than my coffee cup on my desk. And then I spent the day writing a newsletter and brainstorming and planning for my other job and the blog. There are some errands and TV watching mixed in.

Even though it’s a boring day to look at, it was actually a really good day. I’m a dreamer and I spend a lot of time thinking about the future, so it’s always nice to put these thoughts down on paper and into actionable steps. I hope you enjoy this little peek into my brainstorming/planning process, which pretty much involves a notebook and a pen.

When I’m in a store and see a book that I want to look at later, I take a picture of it.

I loved it, but it was canceled (story of my life… I love the unpopular shows). I think I heard that Netflix will bring it back for a second season, though? I need to find out if that’s true and I’m hoping it is because that ending!!

    Trust me, photos of my day would be very very dull. I could never do a post like this. Maybe I should make a point of having a more exciting life!

    Monday’s are always my catch-up day and always my busiest day. I try not to schedule much so I can focus on work!

    This is such a fun idea for a blog post– it’s fun to get a peek at someone else’s life (in a non-creepy way, of course). Anyhow, I do the same thing with books I see that I might want to buy later. There are way too many “to buy” book pictures on my phone.

    I love that you take pics of books you want to read later because I do that, too!! I totally recognize the store you took it at, too 😉 And to do lists are my sanity most of the time. I currently have one started of things I need to buy, the dinner we’re cooking for Christmas Eve, and the breakfast we’re cooking Christmas morning.

    I do the same thing with books! Or I’ll screenshot a book I want to read from a website. ?

    Your Monday’s seem like fun. I love lists. I have so many post-it notes and note pads because of this. haha

    One of my coworkers was talking about The Returned – she said it was being picked up again, I’m not sure if it was Hulu or Netflix, but she was also excited. 🙂

    I like that idea of taking a picture of the book in the store – duh, I never thought of that! 🙂 I always end up forgetting the name of the book by the time I get home. Thanks for that tip. 😉

    Merry Christmas!

    I have to remember the “picture of books” thing. So many times I’ve wanted to look up a book and forgot the title by the time I got home.

    And yes, apparently I too have penchant for unpopular shows 😉

    Have a wonderful Holiday time 🙂

    I love seeing a day documented in photos. Every day might not be super exciting, but it has some exciting bits anyways. I love how you take photos of books – I might try it, too.
