It's been so long since I played WWC, or "Weekend Words Challenge" that John of Odd Mix changed the game on me. It's now the Weekly Words Challenge." Either way, I have some catching up to do:
Whenever being here in the office, scheduling meetings and shuffling papers gets me down, this is the picture I look at. I just stare at it for a bit and imagine being on that beach there, walking along the water. Feeling the sun warm my skin and the breeze blow through my hair... then my phone rings and I get back to work.
I'm so glad I took pictures of this beautifully blooming crabapple tree in our backyard neighbor's yard. It was so nice to look out my kitchen window and seeing this. Unfortunately, the wind came along and blew all the blossoms off the tree like it was a great big fuzzy dandelion. What it looked like two weeks ago is just a memory.
I usually pass through this "crossroads" at least twice a day. We have plenty of crossroads around here, but none without a whole lot of traffic. The county is growing fast.
This past weekend, I attended my friend's wedding. We have been friends since the second day of our freshman year in high school. Last Saturday, she committed her life to her now husband. I wish them the very best of everything.
Time passes, time flies, time drags... but you won't be spending any of it parked here.
I recently attended a parent/teacher conference for Buddy. (Yes, he is in preschool. Yes, they have parent/teacher conferences). His teacher gave me some of his artwork from the past year. This piece is from last October, there is a note on it that says "demonstrates proper use of writing instruments" on the back. He had to complete the phrase "If I could fly, I would fly to..." Someday, when he's all grown up, his answer will remain in my Mommy heart. "If I could fly, I would fly to Mommy."
Now that I'm caught up, I'll be playing WWC again regularly. It's easy! If you'd like to play, do so! Next week's words are "Heat" and "Rejoice".
Don't forget to stop by OddMix's place to see who else played!
