Travel With Me Tuesday: Day 12 Evening in Bath

We were happy to wander around a bit more but our last day on this English trip meant packing up to go home. Fortunately we found a calming event for the evening and a time to visit Bath's gorgeous Cathedral.

A children's Christmas Pageant. I'd seen these in my earlier years in England but Dick had never seen one. Oh the excitement and the anxious parents hoping that their child/children would do well, remember their parts and all that kind of things parents worry about. There were the occasional criers but only their parents seemed to mind. The arrival of the donkey really did seem to be the highlight of the show. So much fun and such tender feelings for me.

Next day it would be an early departure for our train to London/Heathrow and on home. A very good trip rounded out with the joy of children and the ever inspiring Christmas story.

AAM Monday: Project Life Week 38

To me the last of the 30 weeks is a sign. Yes, the year is drawing down but it's also my favorite time of year. Well should be but Mother Nature is reminding us to Chill Out and look at our damn carbon footprints. Mama ain't happy and week 38 was a sticky mess. I'm actually impressed that I got one or maybe even two things done. Just say I was cranky.

No, there wasn't a lot of ice cream or any this week. I started the no sugar routine and he cut out ice cream. Bah humbug. And look below at the mess the squirrels leave when they eat my neighbor's chestnuts. She gave me a bowl last year or so but the whole lot were wormy. Such a shame. The squirrels can  have them.

TBT: Flirting 1960 Style

I found this photo amongst my zillions to scan and it took me right back to a time when I was in NYC. We met these Canadian boys on the Staten Island Ferry. Oh what could have been...who knows! But then again I was only 14...

Travel With Me Tuesday: Bath Day 12

Day 12 of our trip started with an overcast day. Dick was happy to go out early in day and enjoy the river and the many architectural sights. Bath IS a beautiful city.

AAM Monday: Project Life Week 37

The year does roll on and doing Project Life really seems to let me feel the change, the procession of time a lot more. It also helps keep me in the moment because I concentrate on the week, the days, at hand and not look forward or backward so much. That's why I like to keep "up to date" with it. Live the week, scrap it. Week 37 included me using an Ali Edwards technique in some journaling by starting each line with the same phrase - Fall is for... I want to try and remember this and use it now and then.

TBT: The 1st Birthday 1945

As much as I like to scrap what I please, challenges often get me going on images I just haven't got around to doing. My mother in law used to say she needed a 'getroundtoit' when she knew she had things that weren't getting done. She was a fun woman!

While my birthday is in September, it's almost always still hot round here and even up in Pennsylvania where I lived then. Other photos show us outside in the sun. This is probably one of the biggest parties I had because the guests are my cousins and a few other children I don't recall. I was only 1!

AAM Monday: Project Life Week 36

Not my normal style but sometimes you have a challenge that just calls out for some change. If the weather won't cooperate then I'll make my own change. Week 36 ended up with a few changes of its own. His fish arrived, we ended up with a new kitchen air conditioner in just a few days - thank God!, our new outside awnings were finally installed and I got the semi-annual dreaded bloodwork. That's a full week in my book!
