Photo Friday: Yellow

This is my entry for the Photo Friday challenge.

Thanksgiving was wonderful. Cathy, Orlando, and Nyssa came up to have dinner with us. And of course Mom was there. I over-cooked, as usual. But it was nice visiting, and just enjoying being together with family.

Lensday: Orange

Becky and I went shopping for Thanksgiving. I kept putting it off, hoping that the Diaster Relief Foodstamps would arrive. But they didn't arrive, and I had to shop anyway since Thanksgiving is tomorrow. Then, just to make life a little more complicated, my pickup wouldn't start when it was time to go home. Becky and I ended up stuck in the parking lot with lots of bags of groceries, two miles from our home. This year, I will be giving thanks for friends like Marie, who immediately came out to rescue us.

Macroday Challenge: Toys

This is one of Becky's dolls, taken for the Macroday challenge. I had to hunt through Becky's room to try to find a doll to use. I'm feeling a little depressed today. My oldest child (my first baby) turns 18 tomorrow. I try to convince myself that it isn't so bad, since I still have my "baby baby" (Becky). But at 11, she is past the age of dolls and into loud music, cell phones, and lots of shoes -- in other words, she's definately a pre-teen.

Photo Tuesday: Chore

One never notices what has been done; one can only see what remains to be done. (Marie Curie)

It seems that no matter how many loads of laundry I do each day, there is always more clothes in the hamper to be washed! If only my checkbook worked the same way...

The fascination of shooting as a sport depends almost wholly on whether you are at the right or wrong end of the gun. (P.G. Wodehouse)

I was trying to take a quick nap when I felt one of the kids poke at me, trying to wake me up. I ignored it. It happened a couple more times, so I finally opened my eyes. There was PJ, standing over me with his nerf dart gun. He had used me for target practice -- rather well, too.

Thank goodness the schools are back in session on Monday. It's been a really long two weeks!

Photo Tuesday: Yesterday

Halloween just wasn't the same this year. Recovering from Hurricane Wilma left us with no desire for tricks. But the kids still dressed up for some treats.
