My Day - in selfies!

Who loves all the tags that ask questions about you? Me, although I can sometimes get tired of them. So I've decided to begin a new tag - although this one will be slightly different. I've decided to start a tag where.... wait, it will be easier if you just read the rules.

- Take a selfie every hour during one whole day of you going about your life.
- It would be cool if you could show what you're doing in the selfie as well as showing yourself. Feel free to include other people in your selfie too if you're with others!
- Post all your selfies in a blog post so your followers can see what your day looks like. Feel free to include captions. Include the rules of the tag.
- Nominate some other bloggers to participate.

Sound like fun? I think so! Here's my day, in selfies, to start us off.

Day: Friday, 29th July 2016
Place: Home all day (I'm not normally home all day so this was actually unusual)
Time: Every hour

7:00 AM - by the fire

8:00 AM - just had breakfast - Sophie made pancakes! 

9:00 AM - Quiet time

10:00 AM - on my way out to the sleepout to study where it's quiet

Bonus selfie - study! yay....

11:00 AM - music practice with the sis

12:00 PM- hacking into one of the loaves of bread for lunch

1:00 PM - messaging a friend after lunch. I feel like I should say that I was messaging using my phone, although I had to take the selfie using a phone so I used my phone to take the selfie and Danella kindly let me borrow her phone to actually star in the selfie. So there you go.

2:00 PM - journaling using watercolour paints

3:00 PM - More study! This time featuring two cuties who were hanging out in the sleepout as well.

4:00 PM - blogging... with a hot cup of something (either coffee or tea I don't remember)

5:00 PM - time to fold the washing! I look terrified in the selfie because I don't enjoy folding the washing, lol. :P

6:00 PM - everyone was helping tidy up before tea. Here I am making a weird face with a box of Duplo.

7:00 PM - tea time! Selfie with the others who were sitting at the table while we were waiting for Mum to finish dishing up the meal. 

Bonus selfie - one of my other attempts. Even blurrier and look at my head just poking up at the bottom. Ummm... yeah.....nope.

8:00 PM- dishes! (I wasn't actually helping, I just wanted to take a selfie with the dishes people but they were being annoying and kept moving just as I pressed the button... so this is the only half decent one. :/ Come on family, you can do better than this!)

9:00 PM - bedtime... hooray! Just before we put the light out in the sleepout. We don't have power out there yet.

So that was my day in selfies! A somewhat amusing and a little bit hilarious chronicle of a few of the things I got up to during my day. Of course I did other things as well and didn't just do one specific thing for an hour... but it kind of gives you the idea.

I nominate, to do the My Day In Selfies tag, the following people:
Emily from A Purpose and a Promise
Hannah from Completely for Him
Katie from Concealed Foundation
David from From a Jagged Inkwell
Christine from Green Gables of Avonlea
Paige from Paige's Pages
Ashley from Precious Moments
Kiley from The Country Gurl
Allie from Spreading My Joy
...... and anyone else who wants to participate! Have fun! :D

Have you ever created or participated in a tag? 
Have you ever documented your day through photos or selfies?

  1. You said you don’t have power in the cabin yet. Does that mean you’re going to get power in the cabin?

  2. Neat tag, Bonnie! Thanks for the nomination. :)

  4. Hehe, Lydia's face in the top left corner of the 8:00 am one is so funny!!! :) Wonder what she was doing. :)

  5. Question! Is it supposed to be every hour on the dot or is it permissible to do the photos at some point during the hour to get a range of more interesting photos?

    1. Fair question... feel free to do it at some point during the hour (I did, anyway).

  6. This is really cool!! Great post, Bonnie! :)

  7. Oh what fun, Bonnie! I loved getting a glimpse into your day and whoop! Getting to see you going about your daily duties! {{Smiles}}
    You know what love most about these photographs...? They have such a special aspect to them...practising music with your sister...folding laundry...these are simple, everyday blessings {not always enjoyable, grant you!} That will be treasured forever!
    Loved this, thank you for sharing!
    Sending love your way!

    1. Kelly-Anne, I know I say this all the time, but you're so sweet! You're so cheerful and kind in your comments. Thank you for your lovely words. You're a blessing! (hugs)

  8. Sounds super fun!!! I might do it...we'll see. I don't know about having 10 pictures of me in a blog post, lol. But it looks really fun!

    Thank you for nominating me!!!

  9. What a fun tag, Bonnie! I loved seeing your day in pictures. Thank you so much for the nomination. Sadly, I won't be able to do it because I can't put pictures of myself on my blog, but I might just take the pictures just to do the tag. :) You're so sweet to tag me, thank you. :)


    1. Thanks, Ashley! If you don't want to do it, that's absolutely fine. Completely your call. Thanks for letting me know though! Have a fantastic day.
