Focusing on Life :: All in a Day

This week Sally asked us to think about all the various things that happen in the course of a day. I decided to give you a little photo tour through my day; through my usual routine to and from my 'day job'

We had very similar ideas this week, except I am not in the work place any longer, but your day is a carbon copy of what my oldest son goes through (upstate NY to NYC daily). Great pics, don't relish the morning hours though!

That is quite a long day! I'm amazed that you still have time/strength for beading, but I guess we always find time for what/who we love!

It was fun to see what goes on during your day! You do have a long day but it's also pretty darn interesting! My commute is 2 seconds from one room to another. :)

Say it with pictures! Best way to show what's going on with your day. And that's quite a long day you have.

ALL i CAN SAY IS ugh! I have 9 weeks in the summer when the gallery is open where one day mimics the next other than reading on the deck on sunny days or trying to do something useful on cool cloudy/rainy days... but this season of the year once I wind the clock and feed the fish, every day is different!

Hi:
It's a very interesting post.
You've showed almost all Your daily routine-I am very much curious,how You can find time for the 'evening beading'-I admire You very much,that among all daily activities You can find some time for Your passion.I can say,here in Scandinavia time goes slower.We have everything planned and we try to 'steal' the time for our passions-how much of it we can.No worry-no hurry-the life foes slower and maybe happier this way...I do not know-I've been to NYC four times in my life and I loved it,but always repeated-I was not meant to live there-too much traffic,too much hurry,too much worry-I think-the European life goes slower and even if-we are still too much under pressure of it.
-Hugs-Halinka-

You are very organized in your day. Your photos are so crisp and clean. Great post - thanks for taking all the time for the photos.

A Polymer Penchant said...

Beautiful! Feeling lucky for my day job where I work from home. Being somewhere at 5:50am daily would be torture for me.

Duni said...

What a fun post! Thank you for sharing your regular workday in pictures! I must say your commuter train has pretty comfortable seats! And you are so lucky to have a Pret - I love their food! Unfortunately they haven't branched out to Germany yet.

This is really quite fascinating, seeing how your day is and what things are like in your corner of the world. Some things seem quite universal as far as modern cities go I guess -- the trains, the parked cars, the breakfasts!

Sarah~Magnolia Surprise said...

That's a lot of commuting time! Even when I worked in "the city" we just drove to work! Now I walk from room to room.... :)

Alice said...

Sounds like a long day! I like how you showed us everything you do from start to finish. I'm one who likes a routine, though I do like a change once in a while. Thanks for sharing about your day!

Eyelah said...

thats so cool! I didn't realize you lived in Westport. I knew somewhere in CT but.. for some reason didn't sink in that it was Westport.

Shel said...

Your pics are super awesome - I would love to walk through Grand Central Station just once! Oh, and your beads - yummy! Your dinner looks tasty, too! :-)

Becky Pancake said...

Great photos Cynthia. Thanx for sharing. You really have a full day.

Magic Love Crow said...

Very busy day! Interesting seeing everything in pictures! You must sleep well ;o)

Beti Horvath said...

Finally getting around to looking at others' work. Routine can be comforting! I chose a day when I did not have work, because we cannot have cameras or phones "inside."

Pia said...

The Indian Dancer in your header caught my eye. And if I did a post from the last weeks, he would be part of it.

Patty Woodland said...

I used to love riding the train into the city. Grand Central is such an experience in and of itself. I think my "city girl" has completely melted away into large piles of goat berries. :(

Mama Zen said...

This is such a neat idea!

LisaS said...

Busy day! -and cannot forget the beading ;)

Miss Val's Creations said...

Wow! Your day is so busy Cynthia! I can't imagine a commute that takes longer than an hour. I imagine there is a lot of excitement associated with working in NYC! Isn't it depressing being dark in the morning now? I'm not looking forward to changing those clocks.

Memories for Life said...

Fun idea for this prompt :) I'm glad you get to fit in a few fun things like lunch with a friend and beading in between all the daily hubbub!

Kathleen Lange Klik said...

What a creative way to document your day-love it!
My favorite aspect is the end of your day-beading. A perfect way to end the day!

Janet Bocciardi said...

Great job! Busy!

I haven't had the time yet to get back in the swing, but hopefully this weekend. See ya Wednesday!

Claire said...

Oh my, I'm exhausted just looking at the post... Don't know how you do it every day!
Hope you get some rest at the weekends... xx

CraftyHope said...

Wow! What a day. My days don't take me on as many adventures (train rides, Grand Central, NYC) as yours do. Of course, I'm a bit of a homebody. I'm also impressed at how quickly dinner gets on the table after you get home. Do you make it yourself? And you must rise and shine pretty early too. Again, WOW! I had no idea you were so busy to still have time to create such beautiful works of art!!

Linda Y said...

Cynthia, I loved seeing your daily commute and work day. I am amazed that you have the energy to bead after a long day but I feel that it is probably relaxing and your destress activity for the day. I Have never ridden a train like that may have to make a trip to Grand Central next time in New York.

Adrienne said...

Awesome, I love your collage! I wanted to do something like that but the day had just gotten away from me!
