Day #4: black and white
Black or white has all kinds of possibilities: penguins, chocolate chips dribbled on vanilla frozen yogurt, and of course, the printed page. I love to read. I’m not quite ready to fold into the world of the Kindle. Not yet. There’s something so clear and so precise about seeing words in black ink printed on white paper. That crisp exactness is not the same when separated by the glass of an e-reader. Before I go to bed I like to read a Psalm. Gran started me on this habit. She would say, “Having the Lord touch your heart with His heart right before your eyes close will ensure the sweetest of dreams.” Sweet dreams, to you too, Gran.
Day #6: from where you live/your country
*Well, my skills as an editor are miserable and embarrassing. I can’t get this photo to go horizontal even though it’s loaded that way in my picture folder*
*noted grumbling under breath
This one is all about where I live. I live in AMERICA!! And I love my country. It’s the land of Mickey Mouse, the Space Needle, Arizona desert, the Jackalope, and so, so much. I want to travel America and be a tourist of the Grand Canyon, Hollywood, the Statue of Liberty, and Kansas wheat fields. I always stand up and recite the Pledge of Allegiance at school because I love being an American. My country tis of thee…Yay! Hot dogs, apple pie, and the Fourth of July!!!
Day #7: stars
Stars are so cool. Ages ago I used to collect them and would store my finds in a funky wood box I made. I had all kinds of stars ranging from one earring (lost its mate–so sad), to a bottle top to a pencil topper and all sorts of stars in between. These stars are appropriate for this time of year, although we keep them up all year long. They were an IKEA bargain bin mark down and I’m glad I plunked them in our cart as a last-minute splurge item.
