A Day In The Life Of A Blogger (late… with books!)
Mt friend Trish over at Love, Laughter, and a Touch Of Insanity had the idea to have us share what a day is like in our lives. I loved the idea, had every intention of doing it this past Friday, started a post even… and then promptly forgot about it.
Then yesterday evening I was reading a few posts and read Kathy’s at Bermuda Onion (love her day by the way!) and thought, I can still do this. 🙂
So without further ado, here is my Friday March 27th:
6:47 am – wake up, let 5 dogs out. Yes. FIVE. I have three, and I am dog sitting my friends two terriers while she is in Korea visiting her daughter.
7:00 am- COFFEE ready and I sit down to read emails. (First I click on all the junk mail and delete that out of the way). Then I first read the two emails I love to see each day, Shelf Awareness and Hungry Girl.
7:30 am – I open up a newsletter I am working on for a company and complete the updates.
8:00 am – Second cup of COFFEE. I normally post a Morning Meandering in the morning but can not think of anything (in reality it should have been this post lol!) so write up my review of First Frost to go live late morning.
8:20 am – I launch my new website for my Freelance Business and post about it on Facebook. That was scary.
8:25 am – jump in the shower with audible audio playing on my phone with a speaker so I can hear it over the shower. Get ready to go!
8:50 am – Fill up COFFEE cup and I leave the house for the library, grabbing a Fiber One bar on my way out the door for breakfast. For some reason I really like real coffee cups instead of travel mugs so curse myself a bit when I turn out of driveway and spill a little coffee on me. Think of a post title called “5 Stupid Things That I DO”, with the coffee cup and driving being one of them. It is only 3 miles up the road to the library from my house so I am there by 9 am. I meet Ruth and Gail there and we go downstairs to look at the donated books for the spring book sale that is in three weeks. Discuss plans.
9:30 am – leave with Gail to go and look at the building we will be using for the book sale a block away. This is the first time we will be moving the book sale off site due to the large quantity of books. It’s exciting.
10:00 am – Gail leaves and I go to the printer to pick up our tickets for Wine and Words. I take the tickets to the library (yes, I am back!) to drop off 50 for them to sell. I talk with the head librarian, and staff.
10:30 am – back in my car and sit in the parking lot of the library while I respond to a few texts.
11:00 back at house, grab mail on my way in, and open up work portfolio and spend time on my current client projects.
12:45 pm – Leave house to go and pick up Vicki at Mid Minnesota bank for lunch. We discuss the Camp Benedict Bike Ride in July and I secure her for helping out with the food that is needed and cooking the supper at camp that night. HAZAH!
2:00 pm – drop Vicki off at work and I head to the gym.
2:15 pm – work out on elliptical and stretch until 3 pm
3:10 pm – at grocery store where I pick up a few things and what I need to make Al meatloaf and potatoes for dinner. (His request)
3:45 pm – Home! Back to working on client projects.
5:30 pm – turn on audio book and start super while listening to The Pocket Wife. (Unsure of it so far… I am getting a Girl On The Train vibe).
6:00 pm – with dinner cooking, I continue on work projects and a couple of Camp related phone calls until Al comes in from work around 6:50 pm.
7:00 pm – dinner with husband, he has the meatloaf and potatoes, I have a grilled chicken wrap and corn. Catch up on each others day.
8:00 pm – Go downstairs to watch a little TV with Al. He is a big fan of Shark Tank.
8:45 pm – Al goes to bed.
8:50 pm – I turn on Netflix, find a movie I can half listen to while I work on the Camp Benedict website rebuild.
11:30 pm – finish the Camp Benedict website, switch the domain over and launch the new website to our social media spots. Look up at movie I chose and question why I decided to watch Twilight. 🙂
11:50 pm – Bed.
Disclaimer: That was a full Friday. I usually am home working more than I was this past Friday. I usually dedicate more time to working with clients, yet this last Friday I spent a lot of time working on Camp stuff which is one of the charities I am on the board of.

Today I hope to read later this afternoon but as for now I have a few projects to make some progress on. Have a super Sunday!
