morphs into tuesday
… I had the best intentions, plans and ideas yesterday to post … and somehow for some reason, some way, the day got away from me … as it did over the weekend. Perhaps because I was on Zoom, more than off, it seems – I hasten to add, not a complaint, just a fact. I am grateful for Zoom and other similar technologies; not only are we able to keep in touch with family, we’re also enabled to:
- connect with friends , including those who perhaps we’ve only met online via our blogs and other social media;
- learn new techniques in areas of our own personal interests, etc.
-the 15th- afternoon, I went to Barnes & Noble and managed to spend more than enough on books to keep me company for a bit…more on them tomorrow. t’ws my first visit to a bookstore since February! I also stopped at a local office supply – filled with back to school
supplies. In normal times, the inventory would be pretty much decimated. I bought the little guys each their own composition notebook, designed specifically for their ages: 6 and 2 3/4. I know that through the balance of 2020, Chris (6 years) will be doing first grade virtually and Elias, of course, will want to do everything his big bro’
(idol) does. I felt a tinge of sadness as I looked at all the school supplies – memories of back-to-school from my childhood, my nieces, flooded over and floored me as the reality of these times stopped me cold. [deep sigh].
it rained off -n-on and then of course stormed – just as Norman was putting the trash out for tuesday’s collection. why not? fortunately, tv reception wasn’t affected so we were able to watch the Democratic National Convention.
was nearly perfect – low 80s ! Unheard of in the middle of August in these parts. I do not complain! Cheers~
PS. A reminder: next Tuesday, August 25
is the monthly one little word linkup
on this blog!
Yesterday, Tues, was Recent Reads and since we are homebound, we met via Zoom – which enabled our friend Adele (in Ohio) to join us. The photo is the second half of a two page spread on yesterday’s meet-up; slipped in the book pocket is a screen-shot photo of our Zoom session – the only person you can see is me. And yes, that is the Golden Gate Bridge -one of Zoom’s virtual backgrounds. When I stand up and move away from the camera, I actually look like I’m walking across the bridge. Fun … the book I’m reading is Before We Were Yours by Lisa Wingate. It’s quite a page turner. I haven’t had a chance today to resume but I intend to do so in a few short hours.
Later, I took a walk; these are flowers at my niece Kayla’s elementary school – two blocks from my house. When she attended, the rose bushes weren’t planted. Pretty, yes K?!
This is my second medium-sized Log Cabin 9 Patch block. Thanks to #the100dayproject, I’m making good progress; 63 days ’til the project ends. Hmm, I may come pretty close to finishing this project … We’ll see.
Time to have dinner and then log onto Zoom for a scrapbooking crop to work on today’s LOAD520 challenge. Joining Katand friends for another unraveled wednesday.
