TITLE: Self Portrait Tuesday
DATE: 4:03:00 PM
Me and my Honey smiling for the camera.
I'm really excited about January's assignment - "Personal History: Explore the cross over between self portraiture and family photography. This challenge can be as simple as revisiting old family snap shots - to tell a story."
I have a couple of ideas for some photo essays regarding some of my family history, etc.; hopefully this will light the fire to get me working on those.
The Holidaze are over and I am so ready to get on with my life!
Yes, I'm back and ready to make 2006 MY year (I had mistakenly thought that 2005 would be MY year - but we all know how that turned out...). Anyway, we have been criss-crossing this great state of California visiting relatives et al, eating our way through numerous holiday feasts and generally making pigs of ourselves.
We treated the kids and ourselves to a day at Six Flags Magic Mountain
. Here's a quick scan of our souvenir pic from Scream
- ride out loud! That's me in the lower righthand corner (with my mouth open wide enough for a swarm of flies to take up residence) with Graeme beside me (I love how he's gritting his teeth). The kids are behind us. It had been about 18 years since Graeme and I had been to a theme park, other than Disneyland in 1998. The rides have certainly become more extreme, or should I say X-treme, over the years - but I'm so there! Love it!
When we returned home Saturday morning, a package was waiting for me from the lovely and talented Bron
. She had sent me the absolutely gorgeous Seraphina
. This shawl apparently was too small for Bron's "wingspan," but with my stubby arms, it fits just perfectly! I was so overjoyed that I had to give Bron a call. Yes folks, I actually talked to her. It's always weird but not weird when "meeting" fellow knit bloggers for the first time. We gabbed for well over a 1/2 hour about everything and nothing. Thank you Bron! You're the best!
Knitting? Some. Beading? You bet! But did I get any photos? Nope.
