Looking Back | September.

...a quick look back at the month of September through the lens of my daily photos (again, and maybe for the last time*, with fatmumslim's daily prompts).


September was the Charlie show, with a little bit of knitting thrown in. He arrived late on Saturday the 13th (maybe it is surprising I only included him four times?!) I have seen him almost every day, but I haven't taken photos every day and really, some days the prompts just weren't newborn-friendly.
 
I did manage nine knitting photos, including two FOs (Ravello and Mix No 34), one swatch (Amanda, which I don't think I've talked about here yet) and six WIPs (Charlie's blanket - since finished, Wheaten - since frogged, Mix No 34 - since finished, Hudson - since finished, Amanda and Lindsay).
 
Two photos (Saturday the 5th and Tuesday the 9th) were from morning walks with Katie. We walked a few miles nearly every day leading up to Charlie's arrival. Good stuff.
 
Two photos were from evening walks with Holly and one from a morning run on September 11.
 
I cooked! That frittata with fruit was our lunch last Tuesday. We have been doing better about #nosnacksfordinner, but mostly that means pizza or a salad or a rotisserie chicken from the store. I really am hoping to get into the kitchen more this month (does anyone have good slow cooker recipes that don't use beans?)
 
All the other photos were taken at home (mine or Katie's), mostly inside and mostly late in the day.
 
For once, though, I'm ok with that - it feels like this collage really does capture what September was. Even that blurry black and white from last Friday evening - that's the Wedding episode from Outlander, which I watched three times (twice that night :-)
 
You already know I have great plans for October. And now those plans also include better phone photos. My new iPhone 6 arrived yesterday and I think it's gonna be a game-changer for me. The main reason I upgraded was for the camera. I'm excited to see what it can do!
 
...*so I've decided to let go of the daily prompts and just let the photos flow.

September looks lovely, and I think October may be even better when you just let the photos flow. Looking forward to more of the Charlie show!

Here's one of our favorite slow cooker chicken recipes: http://allrecipes.com/recipe/jennies-heavenly-slow-cooker-chicken/
I just use regular (low fat) cream cheese and add chives if I have them. The ingredients may sound odd together, but it really is delicious. I also love this soup from Sheri at The Loopy Ewe: https://www.theloopyewe.com/sheri/2011/12/weekend-soup-moving
Happy cooking!

I think you really did capture September well. And letting go of the prompts is A-OK. I use them when I lack inspiration but mostly I just try to capture something pretty every day. Or something that will remind me of a particular day. You get it. And Charlie is so sweet!

Your months (and years) ahead may be full of Charlie pictures and that's just fine with me. He is so cute and your delight in him shows through.

I agree - it's just about thinking outside of the box at some point during the day. I'm pretty bad at the prompts (though the alphabet is pretty easy this month!) but do like to try and do something every day or so. And Charlie...hello handsome! Keep 'em coming!
