Navigating through life away from the library

Happy Monday! How was your weekend? Mine was pretty relaxed. We’re still adjusting to life as a family of three, but the kids are doing a good job of keeping in touch. This makes me incredibly happy. My biggest worry was that they’d lose touch with us and/or each other. But we usually send or receive at least one mass text per day. That makes the separation a bit easier to handle.

Instead of doing my usual weekend wrap up, I’m sharing some of my pictures from the September Photo a Day Challenge hosted by Fat Mum Slim. It’s been a long time since I’ve participated in a challenge and I’ve pretty much failed at the 52 Week Project: 2014 Edition, I decided to give it a try. If you’re participating, leave a comment below so I can check out your pictures. And don’t forget to give me a follow on Instagram.

Day 14 {Healthy}

#FMSPHOTOADAY on Instagram {Living Outside the Stacks}

I run…

Day 13 {Out of Place}

#FMSPHOTOADAY on Instagram {Living Outside the Stacks}

Take your pick.

Day 12 {Spring/Fall}

#FMSPHOTOADAY on Instagram {Living Outside the Stacks}

I love when the leaves start to change colors.

Day 11 {How I Feel Today}

#FMSPHOTOADAY on Instagram {Living Outside the Stacks}

I’m also tired.

Day 10 {Repetition}

#FMSPHOTOADAY on Instagram {Living Outside the Stacks}

I had a hard time with this one.

Day 9 {Orange}

#FMSPHOTOADAY on Instagram {Living Outside the Stacks}

A Fruit Loop Tree. It could happen. Right? I think I was delirious

Day 8 {Broken}

Sorry, Mr. Owl. I guess they figured out our secret.

My favorite coffee picture of the week:

Fresh Beans from Dynamite Coffee #VisitCape

Fresh roasted beans from Dynamite Coffee. I wish you could smell them, just, yes, please, forever and always…

The biggest thing for me to accept with this challenge is that not all pictures are going to be perfect. As a hobbyist photographer, I want all of my pictures to pack a punch, but that’s life…

I’m linking up with Jeanette at Life Rearranged for InstaFriday.

How was your week?

Happy Monday! Are you ready for a new week? I am. This’ll be my first full week back at work. In fact, it’ll be everyone’s first full week back at work. We had last week off due to a water main break. While I was off, I decided to join the photo a day challenge hosted by Fat Mum Slim. It’s been a long time since I’ve participated and I’ve pretty much failed at the 52 Week Project: 2014 Edition, so… If you’re participating, leave a comment below so I can check out your pictures. And don’t forget to give me a follow on Instagram.

My father passed away 6 years ago yesterday. This ring is one of the few things of his that I own.

Day 6 {I Need}

Day 7 Father {Living Outside the Stacks}

I need more time to work on my photography skills. Hence the failing at the 52 Week Project…

Day 5 {Upside Down}

What would it be like to walk on the sky?

Hand crocheted flowers that I use to customize my cardigans.

Day 3 {Buttons}

Day 3 Buttons {Living Outside the Stacks}

A bunch of buttons that I bought in one of those Bag O’ Button thingies for like $3. I use them for the flowers that I crochet.

Day 2 {Stripes}

There’s a whole lotta pattern mixing going on here. But, seriously, doesn’t it just make the whole outfit all kinds of fun?

Coffee, of course…

Favorite Coffee Picture

Again, I love the pattern mixing that’s going on here. And the angle is pretty cool, as well.

Instagram Week in Review

So it seems that I took an unplanned break from blogging. Not exactly sure what I was doing during that time, but let’s just all agree that I enjoyed it.

Instagram Week in Review {Living Outside the Stacks}

The students have returned to campus so that means the games have begun… I found this little guy on the mezzanine in the library. We’ll find them every where as the semester progresses.

Instagram Week in Review {Living Outside the Stacks}

Met with my endocrinologist and for the first time since having my thyroid removed {thirteen year Thyroid Cancer survivor}, my hormone levels are exactly where they should be. I’ll be checked again in 6 months and then I can go to once a year visits.

Instagram Week in Review {Living Outside the Stacks}

I’m a #SweatPink Ambassador! This has me all kinds of excited. For me, this journey isn’t just about losing weight, it’s about taking care of this temple that God gave me. I’ll be sharing my fitness tips, workout plans, etc. on Facebook and Instagram with a weekly wrap~up here on the blog.

Instagram Week in Review {Living Outside the Stacks}

One of the few things that makes grocery shopping bearable is wearing really cute shoes, like these sandals from Sseko Designs. The Sangria Ribbon is probably my favorite pattern because of the colors. They’re so intense with the pops of color.

Instagram Week in Review {Living Outside the Stacks}

Squeekerz being uncharacteristically nice. For the last 10 years he’s basically treated the kids as if they’re a necessary evil {they provide food and water}, now that they’re gone, he cries… I think he may be part cat.

Instagram Week in Review {Living Outside the Stacks}

I joined Jess Connolly and The Tiny Twig for Friday Introductions on Instagram. It’s an opportunity to reintroduce yourself to your current Instagram friends and meet new people. They also ask a fun little “get to know you” question each week. If you’re on Instagram, give me a yell {I’m 4daenelt}.

Sometimes I take pictures of random things. Like my hand in water…

Miss 21 came home and took Miss 17 to dinner. I love that my kids enjoy hanging out together. I hope and pray this closeness remains always.

My favorite coffee picture of the week. Sometimes black and white says it all…
