September 2013 update / October plans

September had equal parts of spring shots, food, family and road trips.
I will be keeping 150 of all the pictures I took in Buenos Aires and a gazillion and one pics from Bariloche and Tandil.
Why do I count the pictures? Because I´m taking at least a picture a day for the whole year. This is my fourth time around with the Pic-a-day project and at the end of each month I make a mosaic of the month´s pictures and also summarize it in numbers for the My month in numbers feature by Julie Kirk.  Here are some inspirational instructions on how to go about it. 

14 new matching food containers to make my life easier. No more "which lid goes with which container?" and the all pile up nicely.
12 takes it took to have a family picture with all members with their eyes open and the right dog in it.
This is the "wrong" dog, in case you are wondering. :D
Many pods opening and falling in my garden.
Our eldest went on a 10 day trip to Bariloche with his classmates. This is the traditional "end of high school" trip. Most schools in Argentina do it, except for the ones in Bariloche which go somewhere else.

Our youngest went on a 4 day trip to Tandil for some rappel and wildlife camping.
I managed to finish just ONE book. Interesting concept but dry plot.

FIRST 15th birthday partyn invitation for Tati. Not all girls celebrate it, but the ones that do ... imagine a wedding without a groom and you´ll get the idea.
TWO coffee dates with hubbie. We are making an effort to go out more. 

That´s about it for September and I hereby declare and claim October as "It is my turn now" month. 

* I will be working with Jamie, owner of Jamie Ridler Studios on her podcast. This includes a lot of things that come naturally to me and some that don´t. Room for service and learning at the same time.
* I will be participating in Amy Palko´s group, exploring the divine femenine.
* I will experimenting with Donna on the beach.

What will you be up to this month?

What a great idea and what a wonderful way to capture all those amazing memories with your children! I love it! - You were the comment above mine at the Ultimate Blog Challenge FB page. :) - I'm so happy I stopped by!

Hi Paula! My iPhoto library is about to explode with all my pictures. Great dedication to be taking a picture a day!

I love that you are making October your month! Me? I'll be writing, writing, and more writing. I have two eBooks that need to be formatted and made available for sale. My husband and I are finally putting in our new kitchen cabinets (very exciting) and my new Women's Circle group meets this Saturday.

Take care!

So glad to find your blog through the Ultimate Blog Challenge! I love the pic a day project idea and may try that if I survive the blogging this month. Can't wait to snoop around your other posts : )

Coming by from UBC. I am in love with photography as well, only I take pics of life in my small little spot of green in Kentucky. Sounds like your children are going to be well rounded and well traveled I wish we had options like that here, but we are small town USA.. so nice to meet you and I have added you to my blog loving list..

I love October here: I think I'll be making a lot of apple pie! Funny, I just looked at my food containers this morning and decided I needed to buy some new ones. Have a great month.

We have lots of containers and rogue lids too! Amongst a sea of clear plastic ones we have one blue box and, because the colour makes it easy to match lid and box it's the one I always reach for!

Who knew counting our numbers would get us all talking about food containers?! ;-)

The birthday celebrations sound quite special - and those school trips look very adventurous too. Nothing like any trip I ever went on at school ... or since in fact!

You're on the board now: http://pinterest.com/notesonpaper/my-month-in-numbers/

Happy October Paula - to you and yours.

Julie :-)
