Greetings everyone. Even though February is the shortest month, the winter drags for us in some parts of the earth. It holds opportunities for celebration as well. So here we go:
Kevin is officially off to Japan taking full advantage of the February school break and just before he left, he made sure to offer up his sentence.
Off on an adventure, (No pictures this week)
Amy feels February’s spirit of patriotism as she writes:
Patriotic feelings swell in the midst of Lincoln’s 200th Birthday Celebration.
And here’s her photo that I must have missed
Delaine is taking advantage of this month of celebration to bake:
To end my busy, overly scheduled week, I baked a simple berry cobbler.
I want a piece:
Ken, from the Middle Earth, may not be celebrating or feeling our winter, but as usual he offers up wonderful words and an image:
Kia ora Bonnie!
Here are my words:
Wanting grace-note roll or trill
From simmering kettle or steam boiler,
Lacking resonance with clear clarion shrill
From aileron blade or spoiler;
Diapason with its languid chiff,
Aeolian harp with plaintive riff,
Diaphanous vibrant canopy;
The fine aesthetic dulcet choice,
Tawhirimatea’s breath of life,
It yields the most mellifluous voice
On flageolet or flute or fife;
If you puzzle at this trite epistle
Ponder a while on the humble whistle.
And a link to Ken’s photo:
Nancy was ready for this photo/text challenge and found herself way right back in the center of her heart::
Once again, despite my best efforts, my favorites subjects are the star of my DiS contribution.
And my HVWP bud, Eric joins us with a week focused on his teaching challenge, Kindergarten.
As my first goal is to foster well balanced, independent and cooperative children, what do I say when a five year old child responds, ” She is my sworn enemy!” while trying to resolve a conflict?
My guest host partner Anne, reminds us that even though many of us are enjoying a well deserved vacation, there’s tragedy in another part of the world and she shares:
This week was a really sombre one for me, as the full impact of the Victorian bushfires surfaced, with its death toll, housing loss, animal injuries and grazing land damage. (So, I hope that you will forgive me for not adding a photo)
As I come to the end and add something from my Photo-a Day Challenge, I thank you for taking time to share something here.
On the West Side Highway in the Passenger’s Seat: 45/365
How many people were riding into the NYC yesterday morning on the West Side Highway?
I’m raising my hand.
I have a sick guitar with a crack on its back and she demanded immediate care. Her hospital is located on 44th between 8th and 9th and Tony the chief of staff at Luthiers, embraced her.
And what did I get out of this?
A sense of well being of course, and with Tuvia driving, the golden opportunity to take passenger’s seat with my camera in hand and try to capture the River as we sped along the West Side Highway at 60 miles an hour.
Great modern camera technology created for this photo!
Happy Valentine’s Day,
See you at Anne’s blog next week.
