Christmas Photo a Day, December 14, 2017

Throwback Thursday… 1986 and 1987…see the extra little shepherd with her Mickey Mouse? ☺️

This white nativity set was around before I was around… by how many years, I can’t exactly say; I believe Aunt Gael bought it for Grandma …(or was that the set of Revere Ware pots that she got her? I don’t recall the stories exactly, and sadly Aunt Gael is unable to recall either) I set this nativity up in different places, in different homes, but always with the memories of unwrapping them with my brother….

Holiday traditions, and the physical items that sometimes create or support those traditions, also come with the reminders of love and loss…  (Grief is the tax on loving people.—wow. )

Photos of the week, week 5, 2017

We are in February already! Quick PSA…. have you cleaned out your phone, uploaded or deleted photos? Don’t be one of those sad people who lose their memories if they lose their phone. DELETE bad images taken in January. Upload to the cloud storage of your choice all the rest. It’s ok to leave them on the phone, just put them somewhere else, as well! (iCloud, Google photos, Carbonite, Smugmug or your computer—but if that crashes…)

Mix…Begins with E…Light…Fork…Off prompt again–Death of a mug…To your right… Bare branches–bonus planet! …Bonus photo you must see–Table Manners.
