I've been meaning to post.
I could share 100 photographs from this month of January.
But words and stitches haven't come forward.
After the fullness of the December stitching, I've felt tapped out of inspiration.
Oh well. It will cycle around again.

Anyway, in the first days of 2015, this is what came to me as I reflected on open.
Another seed pod, holding only one seed.
Open and seeds seem to go together.
I will continue to ponder open.
I received this gift of fabric from my son's fiance (AKA the girl).
I think she was Right on the Money with her choices for me!
I came across this old notebook from my college days.
Looking through it was a riot.
It was such a simpler time.
I did well in the course, yet this final notebook looks like a 5th graders!!
Here are a few pages. Pretty funny!
One of my puppet ideas, a John Denver puppet, complete with guitar!
These are the two of the book reports I did.
Very succinct. Very.
I got a kick out of her comments.
She was a fun instructor, able to share her love of...her passion for puppets.
After looking through this, I realized that I have for years used some of the techniques I learned in this course while doing group times with young children.
That's almost it for tonight.
I will try to post more of the Long Beach & the Aquarium there and hike photos from today.
But for tonight, I'll share these:
Today we went on a hike, to same place you first saw in August 2013. That post is here.
We saw some of the same fallen trees, same bends in the trail. Both a lot and nothing had changed since we were last there. At one point J. went down the slight grade to check out the tiny stream. He picked up a rock and tossed it up to me, saying, "Here's one for you. You like layers." I glanced down at the rock as it hit the dirt and thought, "No, it couldn't be." But upon inspecting it, I confirmed that it was indeed the same "Reminiscent of Easter Island" rock from all those months ago!
What are the chances of that happening?!!!
Have a great rest of your week everyone,
