I snapped this photo a few nights ago, the sunsets have been very pretty, and moving more and more to the North every day.
The golf course opened here, and it's the earliest that it has ever opened - guess where my husband is today?! It's hard to believe it's not even the middle of February and he's already golfing. He loves it when he can get outside, so do I, it makes him a happier man, and me a happier wife.
Today really was just an ordinary Friday. I decided to make bread, not that I need it, but I wanted it, there's a difference, right?! I love caraway rye bread, so I made two loafs, it is delicious. There's just something about caraway that makes my tongue happy. It's not like dill, which I also love...kinda, but different, I just love it. For those of you who don't like caraway/rye bread, making it homemade is just so much better than store-bought, soooo much more flavor.
You know I'm serious about, Junk Journals, I am you know... :0) So I decided to go through some old files that I had stored away in my file cabinet...I'd forgotten how much I loved these old ideas, they still make me happy.
This is one of my favorite ideas, I've had this photo for about 15 years! Painted scenes on a painted door...love, love! I'm so glad I decided to do this project.
Speaking of projects. We, decided that it was high time to go through old photos and keepsakes. No sense in my kids having to go through them, because they wouldn't even know what some of the things were!
Do you have things like this? I'd forgotten that I even had some of this stuff. Piles of old cards, that I can't throw away...yet. Family history, old photos. And speaking of photos, I was shocked at how quickly those old photos lost their color, and some of them were just fuzzy. Some of the problem was the person behind the camera! Photography has come a long way in the last 40 years.
Of course it could be the boxes I kept them in - anyone else keep photos in old shoe boxes? Probably not the best idea. The garbage can is full of old photos that we didn't have a clue what they were. If they didn't have a person in them, or a place that we could recognize, they were out. Technology has sure made it easy to keep track of photos. Next I need to go through my photos on my computer and make files. I have most of them on an external drive, but I need to put them all on it. It's so easy to print photos these days. The other day I needed to make a copy of a few photos, it took 5 minutes at Walgreen's, seriously. I need to make copies of a lot of my photos; no one will look at them on the external drive. Of course, I have my blog. Do you think that photos will last in cyber-space?
Looks like I have my work cut out for me for the next few weeks. The problem is, I have two or three large bins in the closet that look just like the ones above. To tell you the truth, it was kinda fun to go through them, I'd forgotten how cute my kids were, how many great adventures we'd had, and how skinny me and my husband were...;0)
Have a great week-end, be safe!
Hugs and Love,
