Weekly Photo Challenge: Beginning

The example posted by Cheri Lucas Rowlands was a Northern California foggy dawn.

A sunrise – a perfect beginning.

A baby, just born.

The first page of the dictionary.

The first page of the new calendar.

Once you start, more come to mind.

Beginning= possibility?  A new start.

I did not search the archives for beginnings but put the iPhone to use at breakfast-

My Saturday morning.

Here’s the beginning -

Coffee and English Muffin

The special English muffins a surprise in the Christmas mail from Ben and Susan, thanks

A New Page

A newly sharpened pencil ready to begin……

a journal entry, a letter, a poem, a novel, a list-

A single match

Begin with a single match…………..

Weekly Photo Challenge: Resolved

This week’s challenge is a good one for the new year.  Have you ever kept a resolution?  Hmmmm.

 Resolved to-> Eat healthy, exercise more, just exercise some, get organized, read more books etc etc. etc. blah blah blah.

I thought I would choose something manageable.  Concrete.   Simple. Something i could actually accomplish.

I am not good with resolutions. Keeping them, that is.

The pile of accumulated mail?  NAH!  Clean out the freezer? the  pantry, my closet? NAH  Polish the silver? NAH

So I came up with a resolution I think is a good one -

I resolved to not buy any more yarn.  Finish all the projects I’ve started. Use all the yarn in the stash.

Does anyone else have this bad habit of starting new projects and not finishing the old ones? I should go around and photograph people’s yarn stashes?

I decided to finish the second sock of the pair I started at least 7 seven years ago.    And then Stef helped me out.  She sent the guest blog of the retro soup cans on Saturday. And after Maura and Muprhy left to return to Columbus on Sunday I finished the second sock.  24 hours after my resolution.

Now on to the second mitten.  The sweater I started that’s in a shopping bag in the bottom of the closet.

Dear La, I love the  hand crafted ceramic bowl for the ball of yarn to knit from. Thanks for the great Christmas gift.  It is so inspiring.

(Simply Tangled Ceramics)  She bought it at the handcraft store Wholly Craft, on High Street, Columbus -a long block from her house.
