Resting

Christmas vacation officially ended at 9 a.m. this morning when I delivered Tyson, Jen, Logan, Zoe, and Sydney to the airport.

It’s been a fun-filled two weeks both before they got here and while they were here. Leslie and I have visited more places in the last two weeks than we have in the last year.

This photo of Sydney and Aunt Dawn taken last night probably does a good job of showing how tired we all felt last night.

Returning from the airport, I was greeted by high winds and a burst of lightning, not to mention a street littered with newspapers and trash because all of the recycling cans on the block, including mine, had blown over.

I’m sitting here typing instead of sleeping only because the sheets are still in the washer, not back on the bed.

After a couple of days I’ll have more energy than ever, but I’m not promising anything until the tree and Christmas decorations are finally taken down.

  1. There is nothing sweeter to looka t than a sleeping baby (and what a cute one!) My tree came down today, but it all has to be carried to the attic soon. UGH.

  2. This deeply graceful image made me think of Mary Cassatt’s pastel drawings and paintings of women and children. It is one of my favorites of your photographs.

  3. Yes, it is like a Mary Cassatt drawing. Lovely.

    You are very observant, Loren. I said I’d cut down on Exclamation points – not cut them out entirely!

  4. Beautiful composition and expressions you captured there, like a madonna and child (in denim).

    I’d like to thank you for the wonderful pictures you’ve put on your site throughout the year, and for the thoughtful discussion of literature and ideas I find here.

    I hope this year brings you health and happiness.
