It’s been ages since my last Photo an Hour post, and I thought it was about time I did another. I really like doing these kinds of posts, but I don’t often have the chance to do them. Most days I go to work, so there’s a few hours where I know I won’t be able to take any pictures. But last Saturday I had the whole day to myself. Ross was away visiting his uncle, and I had planned on a very productive day.
I wake up to some good morning cuddles from Ringo. I get up and feed the cats, then make myself some eggs on toast.
Time to get gorgeous! I shower, dress and do my makeup.
I walked to the library to pick up a movie I’d had on hold: The Iron Lady. Before I watched this, my entire bank of knowledge about Margaret Thatcher had come from The Young Ones. I popped this in the DVD player while I did the ironing.
A stack of freshly-ironed handkerchiefs. I finished the ironing and sat on the couch to watch the rest of my film.
Doing a little bit of journalling. And by “a little bit” I mean 10 pages. Apparently I had a lot of thoughts that morning.
Workout time! I huff and puff my way through the New York Lean 25 workout, and I do a pretty good job.
Cooking lunch. I make stir-fried pumpkin, zucchini, spinach and tofu served on steamed rice. I eat it in front of my computer screen while I catch up on my blogroll.
Blogging, answering emails and planning out the next week’s blog posts.
My glasses broke the day before, and I hadn’t been able to find my mini screwdriver to fix them. While hunting for my blog notebook, I found it in my desk drawer, so I was able to mend my glasses.
Afternoon tea is a freshly-baked veggie muffin and a white coffee with no sugar. My resolution this month is to cut down on sugar. I’ve found that making sure that I eat something delicious and sugar-free for afternoon tea really helps to kill my cravings.

After this I didn’t take any photos, because the phone rang. It was my friend Kath, and we chatted for a while and then I had to rush to get ready to meet my mum for church. The rest of the evening included a chicken dinner, Ru Paul’s Drag race and Adventure Time pyjamas.
Do you like the photo an hour posts? Would you like me to try to do them more often?
I love photo an hour posts, it’s interesting peaking into the life of other people.
Also, really randomly, your cats appeared in my dream the other week back, I forgot to mention it and now I can’t exactly remember what happened, but for a week I was just constantly dreaming of cats & yours turned up in one of them. A little bit weird, I know 😛
Oh really? That’s hilarious! I wonder what they were doing in your dreams?
I loveeee posts like these!!! I gotta do another one sometime. I normally wake up around 2-5 p.m. and fall asleep around 7 a.m. – 12 p.m., so I don’t often have a prime picture taking time. But every so often, like this morning, we have grocery shopping, or an appointment with a doctor, etc. I’m a total homebody, so outside of this and biking, or when we have a glorious road trip which doesn’t happen nearly enough with no car and no money, I’m pretty much cuddled up in our room! Also, your kitties are so precious!
I really like doing these posts, but I don’t get a chance to very often. I work 4 hours a day, five days a week and I can’t take photos at work. My weekends are usually full of blogging or lazing about, so I don’t feel like people would be interested to see pictures of those activities. It was just a stroke of luck that I had that one day off where I had lots to do, so I felt like I could actually create an interesting set of photos. I hope to do more in the future though.
They are awfully cute, aren’t they? I’ll tell them you said that!
