Retro Wednesday: Diaries: Part One

Hard cover, daily records, uniformed, informative.  The books Babu recorded her life into are intriguing even without her delightful quips, naive adorableness and astute observations.  Quite a few of them were obtained from Forbes and Wallace, a department store who produced diary after diary that looked exactly the same every year.  Not at all feminine for…

Day Six: A Portrait

I’m sorry!  I broke the rules here but all I could think about were the amazing numbers of portraits in Babu’s collection of photos and one of my favorite ones.  (Technically, I did take a picture of this picture.)  I’ll also include one of my favorite ones I’ve taken of Babu. This really fun photo…

Day Five: Something Mint Green

Her shirt says: Avo-cardio.  And yes, that is a land speeder. A really fun Photo Challenge hosted by Cassia Elizabeth 

Sunday Share: Alphabet Haiku and a Photo Challenge

I got wrapped up in challenges this month.  I wasn’t looking for any, I swear!  But first came around Alphabet Haiku.  Did you know that Haiku was originally, and still should be if it’s not, considered a form of meditation?  I wrote one just for fun and then I saw that I could do it! …

Day Three: A Pool

The river is my pool side. A photo challenge hosted by:  Cassia Elisabeth  

Day Two: Writing

It says: 100 years March 11 1918 She must have forgotten how old she was.

Day One: Coffee Shop

I don’t get out often, being a caretaker.  Thankfully, I have created a paradise for myself at home.  (OK, my paradise is a MESS right now, but I’m fine with that.)  This is my coffee shop. A photo challenge by Cassia Elisabeth.  

Photo Challenge

I have taken up a ten day photo challenge starting August 1st hosted by: Cassia Elizabeth Her blog is called a Little Bit of Everything and it is a lovely place.  The picture prompts are intriguing in their one word simplicity and I’m excited to get it going!  I’m going to keep the prompts a…

Sunday Share: A Witty Lens

First of all:  IF I ASKED YOU ABOUT TWO WEEKS AGO IF YOU WOULD BE WILLING TO LET ME SHARE YOUR BLOG, AND THEN NEVER SHARED IT, PLEASE LET ME KNOW.  I have this sinking feeling that I forgot about some’s share.  I have been able to get posting really ahead of time, which makes…

August, 1940: Part Two

Here is Part One: August, 1940: The Trip Here is something not to be missed while Babu is on vacation with Jakey in Amsterdam, NY and staying with Ann and Paul: Sunday, August 11th, 1940 We slept late and attended 12 o’clock mass at the Shrine of Auriesville.  After dinner we went swimming again but…

Sunday Share: My Own Private Lilliput

I have been following Subatomic Tourism’s blog for quite a while.  I make a little pit stop, enjoy my time, and go about my day with a smile.  It’s a curious little blog.  It’s certainly different and it will be possibly difficult to explain why I like it, but I absolutely love it.  Some of…
