It's a little intimidating blogging after that last post. Thank you so much everyone who left a comment here, in a gallery, or sent me an email. Some of the emails I received really, really touched me and I'll be saving them for a long time. Thank you.
I meant to blog my vacation photos last week but I forgot my USB cable. It was still attached to my computer. I saved you a seat though: :)
So trying to figure out first things first, or whose on first, or something. I feel all disorganized after vacation. Trying to edit 400 photos, why did I take/need so many? I'm just lazy about deleting them during an outing. I don't want to waste any more time fiddling with the camera, you know?
Lots of photos with J in his PFD (personal flotation device) vest. It's not the most photogenic thing, but so important. So many people drown on the Outer banks, esp in the summer. The average is 3 per week in the "on" season. The riptide and undertow are so strong. The PFD was for me too, in the event that I had to go in after him I would be struggling to keep him and myself afloat while swimming against the undertow. So I'd have to swim quite a bit longer to get back to shore, and thus possibly drown myself. I love the water, was a lifeguard, and grew up in this part of the country. But I have huge respect for it and what it can do.
I got some new Scribble Scrabble right before I left, and I'm looking forward to using that. I love graph paper and colored graph paper=wow! Of course a mountain of laundry awaits. I was asked to join the Cocoa Daisy design team on Monday. I couldn't be more excited about that, it's such an amazing and talented team and site! Ali E is doing some fun things for the Sept kit and that should be pretty cool. Happy (what day is it?) um, Wednesday! :)
