Isn't this a lovely photo? NOT! I tried to take a photo of my lovely girls while we were at Em's house last week for her birthday and she would not cooperate. So, once again, there is a shot in which people are restraining Emily in order to get her into the picture. I even tried the 'mom guilt' thing (I must be slipping because it didn't work) by telling her (truthfully) that I didn't have any photos of her because they were lost in the Great Computer ReBuild of 09. And my heart was broken by this.
No dice. The best I could do was have everyone try to hold her down. You can see part of Pk's head and El is in the back and that's Kate in the front. It's blurry and really an awful photo but I thought I'd share it anyway. We had a lovely time at Em's. She got some nice presents and made a delicious dinner. And there were no photos of the birthday girl.
The road goes ever ever on
Down from the door where it began
Now far away the road has gone
And I must follow if I can.
Pursuing it with eager feet
Until it joins some larger way
Where many paths and errands meet
And whither then?
I cannot say.
I have probably posted that one before but I love it so here it is for a Friday morning. I'm off on the road to the grocery store to forage for food. Hopefully, I'll get done before the rain comes. Probably not what Tolkien had in mind when he wrote that.
Have a good end of the week!
