This is my Tuesday

Wendy of the beautiful Scottish blog, Red Boots, has come up with a great idea called This is my Tuesday. It's a photo project. Every Tuesday there will be a new topic, and the idea is to share a photo that relates to that theme, so that your readers can get to know you {and each other} better. Isn't that lovely? Of course I am eager to join in with this fun project!

The topic this Tuesday is home, something that is near and dear to my heart. As far as I'm concerned, a house is not a home unless it's filled with love. It's a place to come back to at the end of the day, a place to be together. So the photo I chose for today is this one...

Every Tuesday after work I pick up the boys and we head home to read, play, colour, relax {a little bit!} and be together. This photo was taken on our kitchen table a few minutes ago. Dylan's pumpkin colouring page from school is just about to go up on the fridge, and there's a stack of Frog and Toad books here to read as well. And of course, there's my cup of tea {the first thing I do when I walk in the door is turn the kettle on!}

Right now our dinner is cooking in the oven, Dylan is working away on a drawing and Sawyer is upstairs looking for some blocks. We'll eat dinner in a bit, and then I'll get the boys into the bath and ready for bed. Alan will be home in time for some stories and a chat before we tuck them in to sleep. Art and books and sitting round the kitchen table, cups of tea and cuddling up in bed. All these things mean home to me.

How about you? I'd love to see your photos, and so would Wendy, so be sure to link up on her blog if you decide to join in this project. Next week's topic is love.


  1. stories before bed, drawing, and play blocks? sounds like home to me too (my parents did the same thing when I was little and one day I want to do the same for mine). I love reading your 'home posts'. They make me smile. :)

  2. That sounds perfect! I love the jack o lantern drawing. Very soon it will be turkeys and then snowmen!

  3. Loved seeing this and getting a glimpse into your daily life, and looking forward to next week even more--love?!? Sweet!

  4. Wow... this sounds like a wonderful way to spend a fall evening. And so very 'home.' I love Wendy - wand somehow I missed that this was going on! I'm heading off to check it out right now...

  5. I'd so like to come over to your house for the afternoon. Frankly, I can't wait to be done with school so I can have little moments like these back again -- working 7 days a week is no fun.

  6. This sounds wonderful. It sounds very relaxing and you get to spend some quality time with your children.

    I'm sure your home is filled with lots of love.

  7. This is beautiful Erin! Your home sounds so cosy and so family orientated.

    Thanks so much for taking part! I was so worried no-one would!!

  8. What a fun idea! I thought about doing this on Fridays and calling it Photo Fridays or something like that, but just never made it happen. Maybe I should start!

  9. oh i love this idea! i'll have to take part next tuesday. home means so many different things depending on my life situation, but i always love when there's a mug of tea and a handmade drawing on the fridge!

  10. i really enjoyed reading your interpretation of "home". :) this sounds like a fun fun project to be a part of!
    thanks for your comment on my park post. it was such a nice day, i didn't want to pass it up!

  11. all those things mean home to me too and i love your tuesday!!!

    i need to play along next week for sure! x


Yay! I love comments.
