My Weekday Morning in Pictures

Hi everyone! Today’s post is going to be a little different than what I usually write about – which is a good thing, as I’m wanting to have a variety of posts on my blog!

Today, I’m sharing my typical weekday morning – from when I wake up, until I eat my lunch. πŸ™‚ I also added a couple of moments from the afternoon to the end because I couldn’t resist; those pictures were too sweet not to share!

This series is completely inspired by my mom, who has been writing her Day in the Life posts since July of last year – it’s a brilliant idea, and I love the way she does it, so I’m excited to do something quite similar myself!

I hope you enjoy!! πŸ™‚ ❀

When I woke up this morning, my room was full of very bright sunlight.

The only window in my bedroom faces northeast, so I get the most natural light in my room in the mornings – but it isn’t usually this bright!

my little succulent plants.
My mom ended up coming in to wake me up, but I was already awake. hehe

I emerged from my room after finally convincing myself to get up (or perhaps that was my mom doing the convincing, as she’d probably asked me three or four times hah), and I went and sat in the glider in the living room. Both boys were seated on the couch, and while we were in there together, we watched an episode of Gilligan’s Island.

For breakfast, I had two banana pancakes drizzled with honey.

my yummy, though not very picture-worthy, breakfast.
Before starting on helping around the house, I decided to go ahead and bake something that I’ll be posting about this Thursday. Wanna take a guess on what it is? (The only ingredient I forgot to take a picture of were the bananas. Can’t believe I forgot about them!)

can you guess what I made?
Once I was done with that, I put everything away and cleaned up while what I made was in the oven. (Aha, no hints!) As soon as I was done in the kitchen, I tidied the living room, which didn’t really need it, but I’m obsessed with having everything neat!

after my magic touch!
Next, I showered and did other boring (but necessary) things around the house. I got what I made out of the oven and man, did the house smell good!

It was almost lunchtime by that point, but I wanted to try and get some schoolwork done before we ate. Before I could follow through with that plan, my mom needed me and Joshua do some laundry, so I dumped everything on my bed. We would’ve done it in her room, but she had just laid Elizabeth down for a nap.

Joshua helping me sort and fold clothes.
While Joshua and I sorted, folded, and put everything in their respective places, my mom was making slime with Samuel in the office. He was so excited about it, and it reminded me of making slime myself as a little kid.

Once Joshua and I were done, I retreated back to my room to quickly work on my next Algebra II lesson. Thankfully, it was pretty simple.

working on Algebra II …
In the middle of the lesson, I realized that the treat I made was still warm, and that was the way I first wanted to taste it haha … so I went and served some for myself, as well as some for my mom, who was cutting Joshua’s hair, and some for Joshua, as well. (I didn’t get any pictures of the haircut, oops)

I finally finished with Algebra II, got everything ready so I could do chemistry after lunch, then went and ate with everyone. Elizabeth woke up while we were assembling our food, so she joined us for the meal.

happy Elizabeth.
I had a turkey sub, as did my mom, Samuel had a soft pretzel, and Joshua made a whole assortment of breakfast food; eggs, bacon, and Canadian ham. He enjoyed eating his homemade brunch.

Joshua’s brunch.
*bonus pictures!* Immediately after lunch, I played pretend with Samuel, and we both had a good time. πŸ™‚

My favorite moment of the day was when Elizabeth was happy to sit with me on the couch while my mom read to me and Joshua out of an Italy book for world geography.

Elizabeth the sweetie-pie.

Thank you so much for reading and following along! I’m excited about getting to do more posts like this in the future; I loved getting to write this one! ❀

I hope that you have a wonderful Tuesday!!

    1. Thank you so much! ❀ Haha yup, I made two small loaves of banana bread!! I’m the one who decorates my room, but my mom furnishes the rest of the house. 😊


      1. Cool, so am I! πŸ™‚ What’s your favorite subject? I like chemistry (the course I’m taking is so much fun), and children’s literature.


  1. This was great Maggie!!!! It was a good read, easy on the eyes, interesting. I couldn’t wait to scroll down and read more πŸ™‚ The pictures where perfect. Athough I haven’t ate yet so the pancakes, and Joshua’s brunch have made me quit hungry lol. Thanks for sharing a day in the life of Maggie. I’m looking forward to more. πŸ™‚

      1. Miss Maggie, I hope you don’t mind but I was tagged in #MyFirstBlogRevisited, and I had to tag 5 others so you know you were the first on my list πŸ™‚ It took me HOURS to figure out how to do the links and tags,,,uugghh you know how bad I am with stuff like that. I hope you don’t mind me tagging you

  2. What a perfect morning, you’re extremely productive and organized, dear. I hope I have a daughter just like you one day. You’re so good at helping your mom, so intelligent and so good with your siblings. You should be proud of yourself. Keep on being awesome. Oh and I love this kind of post!!

      1. That’s wonderful, I’m so glad to hear that. I also have Pollyanna stuck in my head ever time I say “glad,” which Pollyanna is also a free classic on the Kindle. I like kid stories as well as adults. Oliver Twist, Great Expectations and some more of Dicken’s word, and Jane Austin’s work are also free on Amazon.

      2. Oh I loooove Pollyanna!! My mom loved watching the movie when she was little, so she had it on while I was growing up, too. I have yet to read the book, though! I’ll have to add it to my list. I love children’s books, as well – I love the innocence and sweet stories there are, which can’t usually be found in adult novels. Have you read Anne of Green Gables? I recently did. It’s such a great story!

      3. Oh my goodness! I’ve read Anne Of Green Gables about three times if that answers your question πŸ™‚ I’ve read A Little Princess, about five times. And the Little House on the Prairie Books. Oh, I HIGHLY suggest Little Women, and the following after Little Men. I love the book Pollyanna, finished reading it for the second time last month, and reading for a second time now is the sequel to that. I had read the second book in the Anne of Green Gables series, though I’ll have to read it again as I don’t remember much. I own the first two movies of Anne Of Green Gables, they were filmed in Canada.

      4. That’s awesome! And I loooooved the Little House on the Prairie books growing up! I’ve read Little Women (the abridged version, anyway), but I haven’t read Little Men yet. What is it about?

      5. Little Men follows Jo and her husband. Jo sets up a school for boys. Some of the boys are orphans, troubled, etc. She wants to set a good example. It’s beautiful, and the lessons in the book are heartfelt. Highly recommend, if you enjoyed Little Women.

      6. Oh and I HIGHY recommend “The Hiding Place,” by Corrie Ten Boom. She was a Christian woman that hide Jews during WWII. She goes over how God led her, guided her, and humbled her…even during dark times. It’s an extremely humbling and encouraging read about how Great is our God πŸ™‚

      7. I love it! Her father also is so inspirational. There was a time when she was a little girl, and she asked him a question she was too young for. So he asked her if she could carry his briefcase. She tried, but couldn’t. So he told her for now let her father carry the burden for her.
