I'm still plugging away on my Week in the Life project. While I felt like I fell off the pace a bit on Tuesday, yesterday saw many more pictures taken, and late last night, I caught up on all of the journaling entries for both days.
I really do have a feeling of deja vu in all of this, but honestly? That's exactly how I like my daily life to be: full of predictability. I know. How exciting to be me, right?
If you were me, you'd slap your thigh and say, "Damned straight!"
Here are a few more shots that may or may not make it into the final album, which I plan to share more of next week, once I get everything printed out.
The great thing about this project is you can pick any 7 days you like to document so if you didn't do it this week, there is always time.
Whose room is that one??!!
Did you use the point and shoot on any of those pics? I am looking for one that does decent indoor flash shots.
Love the silhouette shot of your hubby with the lamp! + I have to say: YOU LOOK GOOOOOOOOD!!! 🙂
love that your kids bedroom is normal!
Lisa Dickinson says
pancakes, syrup, and cable remote…now that’s one perfect morning 🙂
My day-to-day life is not 100% Groundhog Day-ish, but my week-to-week life is very much so.
I love the pink organizer with the white pens. So cool.
Courtney Walsh says
Loveit. I’d like to do this… I just need to remember where I put my brain.

Did you hang from the light fixture to get that messy bedroom photo? I can’t for the life of me figure out how to fully capture the disaster that my daughters’ call a bedroom!
Hi Cathy, Love the pages. Kate here from Baranduda in Victoria, Australia. JUst having morning coffee and watching The today Show on channel nine and they’ve announced Crowded HOuse are releasing a new album. I couldn’t let this go without a little note to you. Hope this is helpful for you.
HI Cathy, had to laugh at that bedroom it is so typical (unless its yours !)ha! Where did the gorgeous pen holder come from, so pretty & a good idea. Have a lovely day.
I like the bedroom. I have a similar shot for my week in the life. I was sick Tuesday, so I don’t have pictures, but I thought I could capture the aftermath of me being out of commission for a day.
You have time to make pancakes for breakfast in the morning?!? Cole has time to eat pancakes for breakfast in the morning?!? I am so impressed. My daughter always asks for pancakes, but I just tell her that’s what God made granola bars for.
I did use a point and shoot for a few of them. I have a Kodak Easyshare.
Isn’t it though? ; )
Cheri, no… i have a nice 24-70mm lens and a full frame digital camera. Gets a ton in the shot!
Oh yes! i’ve already downloaded the new single!
Deborah, he only got pancakes because this week they are doing the Minnesota MCA testing, a statewide educational thing, and so he pre-arranged it. Normally, it’s cold cereal and toast!
Those white pens certainly live a coddled life. Very impressed, Ms. Z!
thank you, thank you, thank you for giving me permission to do ANY 7 days … I put aside my beautiful Project Life stuff from Ms. Higgins (just you wait, oh no, different zone) because I was so far behind – even considered selling it. now maybe i’ll just take it as it comes. and thank the great scrapbooking goddess for signo white pens – the only one i have ever found that truly writes well on dark paper.

Thank you for humoring me with a post! =) I cannot believe how skinny your face is!! And I mourn the loss of Lego men at my breakfast table. =) My teenage boys have them no more…..We DO have messy teenage rooms. Off to charge my battery and upload photos. Keep on keeping on! – pennyscraps
Is that a Pilot Choose I see in your pen lineup? I went to a stationery store that had tons of signos, but none in white! You would love Japan, I’m sure of it.
Cynthia H says
That’s right, folks, Cathy Zielske is fueling the American Spirit. You heard it hear first.
Thanks for the peek into your life!
Amber Smith says
OH!!!! I love the gas shot!!!! I work for Marathon Oil in Marketing and recognized our advertising signage in a heartbeat! Love it!

Loving these glimpses into your week, and just have to tell you how good you look! You just might be the motivation I need to start exercising 🙂 I lost 15 lbs a couple years ago, made a huge difference! But like you are realizing, and I have now too, it’s just not enough to see what the scale or the clothing size says. It’s about being healthier. So thanks!!
Your album looks great. I’m almost convinced to go digi with mine…almost.
On another note, I made those Aisan lettuce wraps tonite. Very yummy!!! I added chopped water chestnuts to the chicken mix. Only 25 calories for 1/2 cup so, probably doesn’t add any points 🙂 Thanks for sharing that one.
You look great, Cathy – keep up the good work!
I am also glad to see the kids room as is.
Actually I thought the picture of Aidan was nice
Is that a Nikon you’re shooting with? I plan to
upgrade to a DSLR later . I got a Canon that lets me
shoot Manual and Automatic. Anyway I enjoyed your project.
