I have not taken a photograph in over a week. That is a weird feeling for me as I always have a camera in my hand. Part of the situation is good - I had a wonderful girly weekend as I previously explained and then I've been in the dungeon of my apartment for 48 hours. Still my camera sits in my jeep. Fall color has exploded on Alabama in shards of yellows and reds with this cold snap but I feel myself building a phobia about being outside as I don't want to feel my lungs seize up.

And I can't think about November 2nd - a happiest and saddest day for our family. But my little MaryEllis will be a year old. A sweeter baby couldn't be I don't think...isn't that the cry of every auntie? I have to go buy a birthday present for the cutie.

I still need a vacation.


  1. You want I should send you some snow to stuff up your nose to fool it into thinking hay-fever time has passed?


  2. ARGH! No snow (quickly dancing the no snow dance). Thanks for the offer but snow just wigs me out.

    But I hear its very pretty.

  3. I still can't believe it's been a whole year. Wow.

    Hope you're feeling better.


i feel as if each comment was between us as we sat and sipped something warm....i love to hear what you're thinking.
