This extreme close up was taken of Abby right after Christmas last year. We took her to Flagstaff to play in the snow. The snow was quite deep. I had fallen in the snow and she thought it would be the perfect opportunity to get herself up out of the snow and onto solid ground. Yes, she is sitting on me. I love the expression on her face. So serene.
This shot was taken this morning by me of my hand while wearing a mood ring. While fumbling around looking for a certain set of earrings, I came across this ring which I haven’t worn in ages. It was purchased in Salem, Ma. Yes, the Salem of witch trials and the Nathaniel Hawthorne house (he wrote The House of Seven Gables). I remember it was a girl’s day out with my best friend that summer nine years ago. We ate clam chowder and drank funky beers in flavors of blueberry and pumpkin. The blueberry beer had real blueberries in it and they kept falling and rising with the escaping carbonation. I wished I had gotten the pumpkin beer.
We shopped. She had her fortune told. We bought matching mood rings and a floatee pen with a witch that moved on her broom and back again, depending on which way you tipped the pen. It was a good day.
