I've been working my way through 20+ years of collected treasures when I came across this rare find. Can you believe I own an original Kodak Trimlite Instamatic? Pretty sweet huh, it even has stickers. I'm not sure if I can part with this beauty, but if your camera is more outdated than this one; send me your address and I'd be happy to send this one your way.
My house smells like icky cardboard at the moment instead of its usual delightful cookie aroma. I've never considered myself a collector or anything like that. Have you ever received a gift you just weren't crazy about, but didn't have the heart to get rid of because you didn't want to hurt the feelings of the giver.... well let's just say I may be guilty of that crime.
Sitting on the floor with a bin full of stuffed animals I played a little game of - I Love You, I Love You Not. I couldn't help but feel a little blue every time I tossed one into the Love You Not pile, for I couldn't help but remember when and where the girls got each one.
There was one project I had avoided for years; getting my huge collection of photos in order. Don't lie that you don't have the same problem lying around in a dark corner of your house somewhere. I always remember being the family shutterbug and I sure have the photos to prove it. I had photos everywhere, everywhere but in albums that is. I purchased a bunch of matching black albums and put all I could in them, labeling them by year. I had quite a few oversized photos that didn't fit anywhere, so I bought a couple of portfolios to keep them in for long term storage.
It was a project well worth doing and I only wish I hadn't waited so long.
I met up with Visda and Bonni for lunch at Zuni in San Francisco to say good-bye to Visda. Visda is getting ready to leave the country for two years for work and can only bring 2 suitcases with her, and I thought I had it rough. I know she won't be a couple of towns away anymore, but I'm hoping she will share her journey with us and it will feel as if she never left. You will be gone, but not forgotten Visda!
Can I leave you with a couple of sweet ideas you could make for your Valentines while I finish up my packing? Besides the sooner I finish, the sooner I hope to get back in the kitchen.
Happy Valentine's Day Everyone,
