Weekly Photo Challenge: Repurpose


Did somebody say, “Repurpose?”

During the first back-to-school week, I’d scavenge the hallway for extra large pieces of cardboard and packing materials and stuff them into closets and behind cabinets. To me, someone else’s trash was definitely my treasure. My students made so many great creations from those things. Once when my husband and I were driving past an old wicker bassinet that someone left at their curb, he turned to me and said, “I suppose you have to have that?”

Daily Gratitude: celebrating my bestie’s birthday with lunch and a movie; staying away from FB for the day—maybe forever; house finch at the feeder!

Quote of the Day: I don’t think outside the box; I think of what I can do with the box. ~Unk

Weekly Photo Challenge: Graceful



Daily Gratitude: a pink, orange, blue sunrise that filled the sky and made me jump out of bed; a 2.5 mile walk over the bridge; a lazy afternoon

Quote of the Day: The artist is the confidant of nature, flowers carry on dialogues with him through the graceful bending of their stems and the harmoniously tinted nuances of their blossoms. Every flower has a cordial word which nature directs towards him.

~Auguste Rodin

Look and you’ll find Grace[ful] everywhere»»

Weekly Photo Challenge: Names


Names: I was given the name “Teresita.” I’ve been called “Teresa,” “Tessie,” “Teserita”—you get the drift—no one could properly pronounce it. My first grade teacher decided to nickname me “Terry” (which I spell “Tere”), and my father upon reading a note on one of my papers from the teacher, exclaimed, “Terry! Your name is not Terry! You tell your teacher that your name is Teresita!”

Daily Gratitude: sweeping and salting my elderly neighbor’s porch and seeing her smile; watching Downton Abbey reruns; a dusting of snow

Quote of the Day: Tigers die and leave their skins; people die and leave their names. ~Japanese proverb
