For me, this has been a long week and I'm only halfway through. I've been trying to use up anything perishable and think I'm in pretty good shape with that. Today I cleaned the fridge more thoroughly than the weekly lick and promise it usually gets, so that's a big accomplishment.
Tonight I came across a photo of a small piece I threw together on the wall two years ago when I taught a class. The bits came down from the wall and some of them were used in other work -- but that photo inspired me to see what I could do with the ones that were left, along with some fill-ins. So I threw them at the wall again. It isn't quite there yet, but almost. The bottom isn't working and I'm not sure about the left-hand side.
I took a photo of it so I could see it better, which is what got me started blogging in the first place on January 31,2005. Good grief -- in another month I will be celebrating a DECADE of blogging. How did that happen? OMG - I am a decade older. I hate that. But nothing I can do about it except relax and figure out how I can celebrate with you, dear friends!
The piece works ok in black and white, but there is too much horizontal in the bottom row and I think the square shape is wrong. The piece was originally a rectangle and it worked better - so it's something for me to work on tomorrow while everybody who celebrates Christmas is opening their gifts.
In the meantime, many of us who just finished celebrating Chanukah will celebrate Christmas by volunteering at church food banks or going to the movies. And then, we will have our own traditional Christmas meal. I have borrowed this from Connie Rose, who posted it on Facebook and it is so appropriate to the holiday season that I post it with thanks to Connie for sharing it!
Happy Holidays, indeed. And warmest wishes for a happy, healthy, year full of laughter.
