I realize this is a bit late – but I hope that all of you have celebrated a marvelous start to 2012!
There are many changes taking place in my life right now – which is one of the primary reasons I have been absent for much of the month of December. I have to be careful that I do not divulge information too early for fear that certain readers might find out information prematurely. I promise to catch up very soon.
In the meantime, I will take this time to publicly announce (rather scary….) that I am going to take part in the 365 project. For those that might be unfamiliar with this concept, I will try to take a photograph a day in order to document a year in my life. One of my New Year’s resolutions is to learn to slow down and appreciate life around me, and I think this might help me to accomplish that goal. So I am going to give it try – and if perchance I do not succeed, I will at least hope to take more pictures in 2012 than I did in 2011.
In honor of this new challenge I am posting the photograph of the day. We babysat our granddaughter last night while my eldest and her husband attended a few parties. This morning she entertained herself by reading a couple of books (following in her Ollie’s footsteps????) and I tried to take a few photos. She is quite enthralled with the camera, however, so every time she heard the shutter click she stopped reading and started to crawl towards me. This was the best picture of the bunch.
I must go and attend to the black-eyed peas and cornbread – I figure any superstition that promises a year of good luck is worth my participation – but I hope to be back soon and far more regularly in the days and weeks and months ahead.
