This is one of those ‘duh’ things. We have these awesome natural building blocks that Rebecca’s DPa (grandfather) made by chopping up scrub he cleared for her aunt’s wedding reception… I wish I had scrub wood in my front yard I could turn into blocks! Rebecca added our rock collection (from the island that *we* got married on and visit periodically, obviously this should be re-named the wedding rocks and blocks) to them. My first reaction was, why are you getting out the bag of rocks? I thought we were going to play with blocks. My second reaction was, duh, obviously these things should be played with together. So there you go, rocks and blocks. I bet your blocks are missing their rocks. You should go fix that now.
Also, I just finally finally finally finished my 2007 photo year book. I started it a couple weeks ago, and it has been a constant push and a constant effort to not be a perfectionist, but just to get it all together, even if some of the page layouts come out half empty and I haven’t spell checked everything and the font sizes and styles might not be completely consistent. Major creative endeavor I can check off. Who wants to guess how embarrassingly many pages are in it? The answer is more than the days in a year. Ack! Because being selective takes more time, and clearly all the pictures of my daughter need to be preserved for all time. Obviously Although a big reason, and more than half the book, are two major vacations, one a two week business trip my husband took to Tokyo that I got to tag along on, and the other a family (great grandmother on down) trip to Central America. They could have had their own books, but then I wouldn’t have made it to 2008 yet. I am perpetually two years behind, and I would really like to fix that. But first I have a lot of blogs to catch up on, and a pattern I’m writing for Etsy that I would have liked to be done with by now too.
