Since I don't have any events of interest to blog about (other than Jim went back to work today after taking a sick day yesterday, and I'm feeling much better. We'll see if Hayley is feeling better today--she's been down with a sore throat), I thought I'd post a random picture from my archives. Who knows? Maybe this will be an ongoing topic here at the shoebox castle.
I took this picture during my last trip to Florida, which was too long ago. I really need to go back for a visit with my sister. I get so much cross-stitching and sewing and other crafty things done when I visit her. Anyway, I was on a walk and spotted this plant (some sort of cabbage?). The colors were so interesting; I love the green/purple combo. When I take pictures of objects other than my kids, I go for color. I love bright colors, as any one who has been in the hall of my basement can attest--several picture of flowers line the wall. I also have my sunset picture on top of the computer desk, and on the wall over the desk is another frame holding 4 flower pictures. The colorful pictures brighten up these drab March days when it SHOULD be 50 degrees outside instead of 20 or 30.
It's been a pathetic spring break here, nothing but lying around in our sickbeds and going nowhere. I promised Matt and Hayley that tonight we'd go on a flashlight walk. We've done it once before and they loved it. We'll just walk around the neighborhood in the dark with our flashlights. I need to get out of the house, even if it's only around the block.
