// A Day In The Life - June

Yesterday I spent some time documenting the day as it unfolded. I like sharing these types of posts on LCH because no two days are alike in our house. I guess that's sort of the beauty in working for yourself (and from home!) Our wake times vary, our daily routines are almost non-existant, and we're free to plan with only Mother Nature in mind. Here's what our Monday looked like...

8:15am - 9:30am // I woke up and decided to let Mike sleep in a little bit. I made a pot of coffee and planted myself in the living room to blog for the day. Typically I write and schedule the posts the night before. But sometimes I skip my nightly blogging ritual and leave it for the morning. Not a good practice, but hey, it happens!

9:30am - 10:00am // Mike finally rolled out of bed at half past nine and we poured our coffee to enjoy on the front porch. Tater Tot and Toby decided to join us. You've gotta catch the summer day at just the right time, otherwise merely standing outside becomes unbearable. Mike also treated us all to a homemade breakfast of scrambled eggs, biscuits and bacon. Of course we ate it too fast and there is no photographic evidence. I'm sure you'll just take our word for it, right?

10:00am - 12:30pm // Ahh! My office! I spend entirely too much time in front of that computer. (You'd think my office would be more organized... I'm working on it) My to-do started off small, but grew by the minute. Full disclosure: Most of what was added ended up rolling over to today's list. I answered emails, shipped orders, and started feeling antsy so I skeedaddled on out of there.

12:30pm - 1:00pm // Since I was feeling cooped up in my office, I decided to pop outside and see what the boys were up to. Mike was hard at work painting the railings on our deck, and Toby was using our hammock as his own personal spaceship. Tobes and I checked on our apple and pear trees (they're growing!), as well as our garden, and then set out on a wild goose chase to find his shovel (no dice). Enid followed us around like a little puppy. Isn't she gorgeous?!

1:00pm - 5:00pm // While the boys stayed outside and entertained themselves, I opted to take a quick shower to rinse out all of the pool grime in my hair. Chlorine just feels so yucky! I blasted my June mixtape and sang along like an American Idol pro. Someone give me a contract! (Except not really, because I am awful) - After the shower I broke open a Bundaberg Passionfruit soda and about died. That stuff is heavenly! Still doesn't hold a candle to the Peachee, but it's dang close! I also wrote out some penpal letters and got them ready to send. Mike also ran to the post office to ship orders and take Georgia to the vet. Poor girl needed her anal glands expressed... and yes, I know that's exactly what you came to my blog to read haha! Dog life!

After all of that was said and done, Toby settled down for a mid-day nap and I migrated to the couch with Mike to watch a little tv. You can never go wrong with Seinfeld! Seriously, there is not a single episode of Seinfeld that I don't love. I'd watch them fifteen times over and never get bored!

5:00pm - 9:00pm // After Toby woke up from his nap we decided to head over to a local nursery. We're on the hunt for some new flowers for our back deck since the makeover is almost complete. The pickings were a bit slim for what we had in mind, but the colors sure were gorgeous! We ran a few last minute errands just in time for the rains to blow in. They were short but sweet. Toby made it a priority to play outside for the rest of the evening, while Mike and I watched a few episodes of Veep on OnDemand. (Do you watch Veep?! It's hilarious. We love it!)

I also managed to squeeze in a hot bubble bath (because apparently wasting water with two baths is a thing now...) before the end of the evening. Sometimes it's nice to just have a half hour to yourself, ya know?

9:00pm - onward // Toby was tucked in and Mike and I finally had the evening to ourselves. We really look forward to those final hours each night. We get to hang out and enjoy each other's company.  How did we spend it? Oh, you know, just realizing that a hot ham and cheese sandwich is made infinity better with hot sauce (even if it's totally unappetizing in the photo) and playing Call of Duty on Xbox Live. Yeah, we're living the dream! haha I like having someone to laugh with because I'm really really bad at CoD. So bad, in fact, Toby is better than I am. Or maybe just cuter. I think I'm getting better though...

So there you have it friends! A (fairly) typical Monday in the Flynn house. Granted yesterday's work load was almost non-existant and I have a hard time staying cooped up inside when it's nice out. Nevertheless, it was a successful and productive day. Here's to hoping our Tuesday (and yours!) is the same. Thanks for letting me share this little peek into our day! xo

  6. Toby is so adorable. He really looks like a mini-me of Mike!

    I work from home also and am currently living with my in-laws for the summer. They happen to live on an island (super lucky, I know) so I spend sooo much time outdoors playing, when I should be inside doing work. Summer is hard to be motivated. Especially on an island!

  7. Your day(s) seem like so much fun. Working from home is awesome that way. I love being able to stop working at any time and just go for a walk, or go get some snacks.

  9. Sounds like a fantastic day :) This is pretty much how a typical day off goes for me. Of course during the week I'm hunched over my computer at work, but I love my days at home when I can hunch over my personal computer...haha. But seriously, you've got such a beautiful life! And a beautiful cat, that shot of Enid is just stunning.

  14. I love that you are willing to share how bad you are a CoD! I'm not so wonderful myself, but I'm getting better. My girlfriend and I tried to teach my dad to play and it was painful :P
    Thanks for sharing you day with all of us :)

  25. I love seeing other peoples a day in my life posts, I've been meaning to do one myself but a lot of my days are pretty uneventful and I'm afraid people will be like "that is really all you did that day?" and I'd have to be like "yupppp, I am an epic time waster". Maybe I'll still do it haha.

    Thanks for sharing your day with us, your pets are so cute and I can't get over Enid's gorgeous little face.

  27. Ahh! It made my day seeing as you drink Bundaberg drinks. I grew up in Bundaberg and it's kinda awesome seeing someone on the other side of the world drink something with it's name on it! :)

  29. Ok I have to know... WHERE do you find Bundaberg drinks?!?! I lived in Australia for a year and a half and I really miss those things. I live in NC and I haven't seen them since coming back to the states.
