Beginning With Texture Tuesday
Each month over at my collaborative blog Focusing On Life where I contribute twice a month, we choose a "word" or "theme of the month." I always start the year and this year my choice was "Beginnings". In my thought process I imagined that this would be the perfect word for the brand spankin' New Year. Let's not do resolutions, because you know we all seem to fail miserably at those, but beginnings was a kinda of guilt-free way to think about what kind of new beginnings would I like to do during the year.
Well, I definitely have not been the poster child for "beginnings" as now it is the 14th day into this new year and my Christmas tree, is still fully dressed and still standing proudly, lighting every evening by 4:30. By this time, and usually by the 1st week of January all the Christmas beauties have been tucked neatly into their bins and put away for another year. I have been draggin' my feet all year, literally.
About the only new beginning I have done for this year, is make the decision to let my hair grow longer and I started a new book. Now both of those are truly momentous....wrong. I will admit to having most every other Christmas pretty packed into boxes, it's just the tree that is still standing. My only excuse is I needed a new ornament box for storage and I dragged my feet about getting to the stores, now they are all sold out. That procrastination pattern took over again, and now I am stuck with figuring out how to store those beauties.
Oh yawn, this is getting boring. The above pic was taken with my 50mm and the lovely ranunculus was purchased to brighten my attitude. I added one of Kim Klassen's lovely textures that she continues to share with us even after the struggles and year that she has had, KK_100 and am now joining her over at her blog for Texture Tuesday.
I hope you have a lovely day....
