HAPPY TUESDAY!!! I cannot believe that it is already Tuesday Talk Tuesday, can you!!?? Also, I can't believe that St. Patrick's Day is tomorrow! So, how are you all today! I mean it is mid-March, and almost spring, and I want to know how you all are doing!!?? Can you believe that in 5 days it will be spring! Do you guys know what else I am excited about? A new Publix is opening near me in a couple of weeks, and my family is ecstatic!!! Anyways, enough of my rambling, let's get on with this month's edition of Tuesday Talk!! The last time I did a Tuesday Talk, I also shared A Day In The Life, buuuttt I just love doing them, and I documented it down and it fit perfectly to do it today, so it'll be okay!! But I will try to find another topic for next month!! Let's go!!
My day started out at 5:30 AM, I have been working on getting more sleep. Yes, that also means going to bed earlier, but also letting myself sleep in for thirty more minutes. Also, on Mondays, I don't have very much schoolwork and my zooms start later, so I have been letting myself sleep in until 6:30-6:45.
I use the app Sleep Booster, or now it is called Avrora, to track my sleep, play calming music, and wake me up! I love it! First, it plays my alarm and shows me the time, then it asks me to rate my sleep, next it shows me an inspirational quote, and then it shows me my sleep stats!
That night I got 7 hours and 53 minutes, but it doesn't count my minutes asleep until the go-to-sleep-music finishes playing, and I am normally passed out by then, sooo, I count that as 8 hours.
When I walked into the living room, Lincoln was chewing on his femur, trust me, it's not a real one, just a toy one!! Seeing Lincoln in the mornings is always a highlight!!
While I waited for my tea to steep, I took a selfie with Dad, and Clara, and Lambie (Clara insisted I take a photo with him!).
Then I walked outside to the see sunrise, it was super gorgeous that morning! Trust me, the photo does not do it justice!
Pip also enjoys watching the sunrise!
I am not sure if you guys know, but Pip is kind of a silly kitty. He sits on our kitchen table all of the time, so I thought it was hilarious that he was in the background of this photo! Anyways, while I was sipping on tea, I was also making ... CINNAMON ROLLS!!! I feel like I always try to make the day I am documenting for A Day In The Life a little more special, but who doesn't want cinnamon rolls for breakfast!?
While the cinnamon rolls were in the oven, I checked the weather for the day, and look, the high was literally 80!! Yep, enjoying our summer weather down here in Alabama!
Also while the rolls were cooking I photographed Charles Dickens, how cute is he!!
And photographed Pip!
Then the rolls were ready!! It might be an understatement to say that we merely enjoyed them!!
Remember how I mentioned that we listen to the song Le Festin on repeat, wellllllll, here's that evidence!
And we also have this great shot of Clara enjoying her cinnamon roll! I honestly have no idea why she is making that face! 🤣🤣
When I was all finished with my cinnamon roll and breakfast, I got ready for the day. And it looks like I took no photos, but that's okay, we have plenty more for the other parts of my day!
Anyways, when I was done getting ready, it was time for my morning run!!
This was my run time for that day, not my best, but not too shabby.
After my runs, I always like to practice volleyball for a little while. I don't want to have to serve and chase my ball over and over, so I normally serve onto the roof. The real challenge that day was trying to set up the camera to photograph it!! ;)
When I had served a couple balls to the roof, I went back inside, and found Pip bird-watching from the kitchen window!
Then, I found Lincoln in the back room working with Mom, and by working, I mean sitting in the chair playing with his hippo toy!! This puppy cracks me up!
I love this one, so cute!
I made my bed, and quickly hopped onto my first zoom at 8!
While I was on zoom, Mom went on a little walk with Lincoln.
During my science zoom at 8, we went over a checkpoint in a project that I had already finished, so I worked on writing everything down in my planner for that day!
Then, it was time for my math zoom at 8:59!! That day we were working on studying up for our End Of Unit Assessment on Linear Relationships!
When that zoom was over, I had a little bit of time in between it and my English zoom at 9:53. I was freezing, so I cuddled into a blanket and waited for the zoom to start.
Then I got this notification............ :(
Why does the one day I am documenting A Day In The Life, the zoom gets canceled? Insert me sighing....... Luckily, I did not actually have any work that I needed to do for English, because the Checkpoint got moved, so I played with Lincoln instead!
This was Pip from my window!
Then, it was time for lunch!! That day I had shredded chicken on a bun, it was leftovers from what we had had for dinner!!
Then I settled down to blog for a bit, and by a bit, I mean around two hours!!
Apparently, I was listening to music and had a jam session and had to take some photos of it.
When I was all done blogging I had to get ready for volleyball, and then we left!
Our practice is from 5-7, but unfortunately, I did not take any photos of it, but I do have a selfie from on the way home!
For dinner that night I had chicken fingers, green beans, and roasted butternut squash!
I also ended up having some ice cream! I was having chocolate moose tracks, but I also wanted some vanilla and ended up having both!
Before I got into the shower, Pip was in my room and was being so sweet, so I let him be a cuddle-kitty!
Then I showered and got ready for bed.
