This Moment – The Model and The Book

A Friday ritual. 

A single photo – no words – capturing a moment from the week. 

A simple, special, extraordinary moment.

A moment I want to pause, savor and remember.

April Snow Woes

It’s that problem you have when the day before the ground was solid mud but today it’s all snow covered and frozen.

When you are accustomed to being a glorious white but the mud has lingered and you are are hardly fit to be seen.

When all the puddles and ponds have frozen and all you have left is a water bowl.

And it’s just too small for a decent bath.

 

 

So Many Moments

A returning home ritual. 

A pile of photos capturing moments from the week. 

A collection of simple, special, extraordinary moments.

Moments I want to pause, savor and remember.

L is for… Leaf

Did you know that honey bees are actually unrepentant photobombers?

It’s true, just look what this little lady did to my picture of a leaf!

She’s trying to steal the show but this “L” picture is all those baby leaves.

The leaves that uncurl daily at this time of year always seem to be overshadowed by their flowery companions (and photobombing bees) but I think that mist of green that covers everything shouts, “Spring is here!” louder than any flower (or buzzing bee) ever could.

Speaking of shouting, I’d also like to share a little story about listening, in honor of the letter “L”, of course.

(Ivy brings me a container of small bulbs that have started to sprout and asks what they are.)

Me: “Those are the blue-flower bulbs.”

Ivy: “I don’t know what those are.”

Me: “Do you remember which flowers I’m talking about it? We plant them in pots…blue flowers… Granny and Gramps have them on their porch too…”

Ivy: “Oh! Are they red?”

Me: “Did you hear me call them blue-flowers?”

Ivy: “No.”

Me: “Sometimes, when we have conversations like this, I wonder if you actually listen to me when we talk.”

Ivy laughing: “No. I don’t really.”

Me: …

Speaking of conversations like these, I’d also like to share another favorite “L” word – liquor.
