According to my calendar, today is my 11th Blogoversary. Yes, I have more or, most recently, less been blogging for eleven years! To mark the occasion, I’m sharing a photo from this week’s Photo Challenge (a follow on to the class I did with Ricky Tims last year). Instead of doing my initials, I chose to do Eli’s since he will be leaving for college (SOB) shortly. I’ll thrill you all I’m sure with dorm move-in pics, and will do my darnedest not to start crying until after we leave campus. The photo challenge theme for this week is Found Alphabet. I actually teach a Quilting Design class which uses this “learning to see” exercise (Info is here, scroll down to Quilting Design).
Here is a photo of the fireplace, source of the letters.
It’s gonna be hard being an empty nester. Our lives have revolved around Eli’s sports for so long, every week a meet. This year, none. I know I will have more than enough to fill the hole, but still. Spent the morning copying his iPod playlists so I can play them when I am feeling homesick for him. Maybe I’ll even spend some of that time blogging…what a concept!
