Sometimes, we get caught up in nostalgia, future fantasy, or both, and we don’t embrace the “now.” For this week’s challenge, take a moment to notice your present, and share a photo of it.
Not in my house. Unless you are checking your phone.
Or the oven digital in the kitchen or the two on the desk in the front hall.
The weekly challenge is Time
The clocks and watches in my home are not synchronized with the time zone.
The one below is correct too but I had to remove the art work to check it
My fathers mother’s clock

Light through the dining room chandelier in Ohio.
I was folding sheets and towels, fresh from the dryer.
The afternoon sun streamed in, through the window and then the dangling crystal, onto the door jamb and the sweater drying on the laundry room door. The ceiling, too.
Vibrant gallery 2
Scottsdale, Arizona. My midwinter break. Last Thursday night’s Artwalk.
Delicious chocolate brownies and wine served in the back amidst vibrant artwork.
The weekly photo challenge is vibrant.
Xanadu’s show is Diamonds in the Rust- features artist Dave Newman’s new works – painting shown on wall from Thunderbird Series Dave Newman
Musicians are Pat Roberts and the Heymakers. Amanda Lee on bass and Tom “Hacksaw” Coulson on drums. (according the the info I found on their link-hopefully correct)
A vibrant scene, Main Street, Scottsdale Arizona.
I read the fine print and am not allowed to post my photos of artist Bruce Munro’s vibrant Water-Towers, at the Desert Botanical Garden but if you click on this link you can see his perfect photo of his light installation.
ALPHABET : The Weekly Photo Challenge
I looked around the house and found letters in several places.
Old wooden baby blocks on my desk in the front hallway.
Alphabet rubber stamps I used to use in the Art Room, dust and all.
Plastic canvas and yarn baby blocks I stitched for my son Mark in 1976.
Crewel Alphabet Sampler I stitched in 1975. If I could have removed the linen from under the glass with ease, I would have done so for a better photo .
And Now we’re in the kitchen,
at the table.
I’ve been knitting all evening.
We’re listening to Moody Blues, Jefferson Airplane, Paul Simon and the Seekers.
Froo Froo Marlene has been crocheting for months. Hand work takes time
Her efforts paid off though cause the grandkids (who all swim for Ohio State Swim Club) were excited to receive their aquatic afghan sleeves. Marlene also created some photo books for each grandchild too, and I got a creative magnet and mug with all the grandchildren featured!
She made one for Baby Charlie, too. Here he is being swallowed up by his Jaws blanket!
PapPap picked out the wild and crazy SingTrix Karaoke Machine (as seen on Shark Tank, too) It provided a lot of entertainment and everyone wanted a turn. Pap Pap’s rendition of Elvis’ Love Me Tender is still at number one for the performances.
A very merry Christmas and I just read the Weekly Photo Challenge is NOW
If you are a crocheter and want the link to the patterns, I’ll get them from Grandma Marlene in the morning
Eye Spy it’s all about the eyes this week.
Charlie sports his Rudolph hat as his mom carries him with a new “baby-wearing coat”.
He’s peeking out, snug and warm.

In keeping with this week’s theme -a NYC Transit worker illustrates Transition–
but two images required.
Sunday afternoon I was still thinking about how to best illustrate Transition in a single image. The “yarn to knitted hat” photo was well received. What else could I depict to show transition?
Talking about it with my sister, she suggested the ice cube.
In my sisters kitchen, New York.
Photographing ice reminded me of trying to photograph glass so it doesn’t look blah.
I like responding to the challenges and seeing how others interpret the same theme.
