Today was one of those days that I awoke early, fed and played with my baby, and saw my husband off to work. School starts today and it is his first day back teaching physics and his second love, biology. I got busy and watered my garden, picked some peas, and did those early morning chores.
While my baby boy cooed and played on his blanket on the floor next to me, I browsed around on my favorites on flickr.com and stumbled across a group called “Whimsical”. So many artists can be found there and I found myself browsing around there for an hour. On to another blog I read pretty regularly and her most recent post being rather whimsical. She’s so talented and very creative. Check out her work. I wonder if she posts anything on this site. There is so much activity.
With this, I look at the mess in my living room: the hundreds of old photos all needing to be put in an album/scrapbook. They have been in a box for several years. Right now I am simply trying to organize them. Dog photos; people portraits; vacations to Bermuda, Carribean, Grand Canyon; horses; food; feet; me. Old photos and really old photos. Scribbles on notebook paper all bound in folders; research papers; parents highschool diplomas; degrees; grade cards from way back when.
Not only will I be organizing these treasures, I am scanning all of them for archive purposes but also to print and create something wonderful for my boy. I have started a small book for him, all written with brush and in calligraphy, poems I have written through my pregnancy and following his birth.
I love this—he just rolled over!!!
