And that's the weekend... and September!

I love this meta photo taking business :)

Me, Cat, Louisa
 1. Is it me or is the blogosphere quiet? Not that I mind because I got two hours of blogging done and my menu plan is ready for the week.

2. If you're the slightest bit interested in organising, I'll be posting 31 days ... of easy organising solutions for the month of October on this blog. Tonight I wrote 7 posts in 112 minutes. Average 16 minutes per post. Actually slightly off because I also made a button in that time.

I don't know why I'm surprised but I'm always very productive when I've planned beforehand and I just sit down to write.

3. Anyway, the kids didn't nap yesterday or today and, as a result, had very early bedtimes (asleep shortly after 7 - bliss). I also just want to add that they both only got a star ONE day this week for sleeping nicely. We count it as no jumping around and out of bed at all once they're supposed to be sleeping. Unfortunately today I also lost out because I'd promised them they could bake pumpkin muffins with me IF they slept. So no pumpkin muffins and I have a fabulous recipe that I've actually done.

4. I finished my book which makes it 6 books for September and 999 on Goodreads. I almost feel like I need to choose really carefully for the next book to make number 1000 a good one. But actually I'm in the mood for an Irish chick-lit (have just bought another Sinead Moriarty - Amazon one-click is a beautiful thing) :)

5. We went to a lovely, lovely party yesterday. Beautiful attention to detail but oh so relaxed. We didn't want to go home :) I played photographer which means I got almost nothing of my own kids but some lovely pics of lots of other children.

So that's September. I'll post about my goals tomorrow BUT this time last year it was the great Gallbladder Drama. I'll feel okay again once we pass 11 October.

How was your weekend?

{September Saturday Snapshots} This week's theme is dirty/ messy NEW

I just came to check my dashboard to see why no-one's commenting and I see the darn thing didn't schedule properly. Soooo sorry!

Well now, this is the last week of our challenge.

Are you sad?

I am a bit... so I decided to host three more weekends. One weekend a month for Oct - Dec.

But on the second Saturday of the month. The end of the month is too hectic with all the goals I have to post :)

So get your pics ready for Sat 13 October - I will make a button and so on - but the theme will be black and white :) I'm hoping that will get my A into G for a project I want to do.

This week's challenge is dirty/ messy.

First I was stuck because I'm looking for beauty in my pics and mess and dirt are definitely not  beautiful to me.

Then earlier this week I got an email for another photo site I subscribe to, and they said take a pic of your mess in your house - laundry, etc. And I did just that. The pics were terrible but I started looking at things a little differently which I suppose was the point!

Here you go, my 5 offerings.

glitter glue

baking mess and untidy rolls :)

the babies at 14 months - eating mulberries in the garden when D was babysitting :)
