A Day In The Life - a Photo Journal

This primarily started as fun with the new camera - and posting pictures may well end up being the primary use of this Blog - but here is how Easter Sunday went for Babs.

Man, it was an early start..

but the day started like pretty much every other:

Then - who KNOWS what insanity inspired this - I spent an hour curling my hair..

and of course, because THAT took so long, I was a little late getting out the door for church

but apparently it wasn't TOO late because the parking lot was still practically empty when I got there for the 7:30 show call but that's my folks' van so I know they're here anyway...

fact is.. I was early enough that the dressing room was empty and still dark!!

Ah... there's a couple of the girls finally!

and the torture begins - let me tell you, being an angel involves PAIN!

ok, 8:15 cast meeting - at least they provided coffee!

and yes, this is our little group of angels in full costume greeting the congretation coming in for both Sunday morning services.

ok, this may not be the kind of church or even Easter Sunday Service you are familiar with:

After 3 hours in that frame, there is nothing that feels as good as taking it off - literally weak-kneed:

and yeah, we just stayed there for awhile - and laughed at ourselves

so with Church finally over, and the costume and makeup finally off, I can get over to my folks to help with Easter Sunday dinner - about 1:00 - but our Easter dinner is a little different than most. Our family tradition is to use a bunch of the dyed easter eggs in a MASSIVE bowl of my mom's potato salad - which is a very unusual full meal recipe with ham, cheese, eggs, pickles in addition to the potatoes. That is two of my younger brothers who are helping to prepare the meal with me.

Of course, because David and I are working on lunch, we definitely have to get the Twins game on!

which means I have to start playing with the new camera to get a better shot of TV screen

Mom finishes mixing all the ingredients together and we are ready to eat!!

of course, during lunch, Dad and I have to keep playing with the camera and the TV and my Dad can really do a good job with a slow shutter!!

After lunch, I sat down to help little brother, Jeremiah with his French homework

HUH??

homework and chores completed, the boys run off for some fun and the 'rents and I play a game...

Ok, Mom kicked our BUTTS at dominoes so we switched to cards so Dad could win

yeah, since I was tired of losing, it was time for GINORMOUS homebaked chocolate chip cookies for snack..

... and one more game to see if it's my turn to win

Turns out, I spent a LONG time playing games with the folks - good relaxation but time to go home

and I generally end the day the way I start it - a little computer time.

And getting ready for bed - THIS is why its insane to curl my hair - it NEVER lasts

so... hanging out in bed, vegging and watching a bit of Mythbusters!

OH!!! Planet Earth! I love this series! guess I'll be staying up a little later...

but you remember how I got hooked on the whole camera thing with the TV? hooked again..

Found your site through Captain Capitalism;

The Easter service you posted pictures of seemed quite impressive; do you mind sharing what church it is?

CapitalBabs said...

it's North Heights Lutheran Church at the Arden Hills campus (there are two - one in Roseville).

This is the 18th year of the Passion Play production and they do one in July honoring servicemen and women and they do a Christmas one as well. I've been participating almost every year since they first started. It's quite the deal. One more weekend of the Passion Play left this year... If you want more information: www.nhlc.org

Wow - I looked at the information on the site on the Passion Play and it looks amazing. If my wife weren't going out of town this weekend, I think we'd have to see it. Thanks for the link!
