365 Photography Project_Sixteenth Post

Not nearly as dramatic a picture as last week. Oh well.

Sunday January 23, 2011 A mission101 project_going through all my books and discarding those -- pictured -- that are no longer relevant. Unlike clothes, which I go through yearly, I rarely go through my books, but interests changes and new books keep coming in all the time so, sadly I guess, some have to go. I worked on this a little each day the prior week and finally finished on Sunday.

Monday January 24, 2011 Another mission101 project_Go through my card collection -- fifteen years worth of the the ones I bothered to save in the first place -- reducing it to fit in one box, preferably, or both, if necessary. I worked all day Monday on this, it torn me up dealing with holiday and birthday and thank you and 'just because' cards from my parents, from friends I know longer know, from Lauren when she was 3 or 5 or 10, plus, all the cards we'd given my parents over the years that I had gathered back-up when I cleared out their house in 2007.I pretty much cried all day and then, the job was done and all that I've kept do fit in one box

Tuesday January 25, 2011 The outside of Lauren's orthodontist. A couple of spacers were added.

Wednesday January 26, 201 Lauren's (and my) dentist's office. Clean...clean...clean.

Thursday January 27, 2011 Continuing the Documenting Our Stuff Project_Lauren's Great-Grandma Inez's figurines.
For Lauren:
These two, the pretty little deer and the so cute dog, were always in your Great-Grandma's Inez's kitchen on a scalloped-edged shelf that connected the 1940s/ 1950s cabinets that flanked her sink and window in each of the only two house she lived in -- with your Great-Grandpa Dewey -- that I can remember. Neither has markings, no pottery makers name on the bottoms, still, they mean a great deal to me because I have very little, otherwise, from her nor do you. She died the year you were born, 1993.

The ones on top are written by Tolkien's son and each of the his three books discusses, AT LENGTH, the writing of each of Tolkien's three books.

Dude, seriously, if you want them, I'll send them to you, I don't mind the shipping. I'd rather they went to someone who might get something out of them then be sent off to the Goodwill where people will probably look at them and go 'whatthehell?'. Let me know.

i'd be more than happy to give them a happy new home. thank you so much, gayle, it's incredibly nice of you to do this. should i private message you my address?

also, i love how your p365 is coming along! I think recording a snippet of each day is a wonderful idea.

I think you will need to send me your address again, it's out with my Christmas card stuff and difficult to get to. Just email me, k? I'll send them out to you this week. YAY!! I'm glad.

I am having a great time doing this even if some days I can't, for the life of me, think of something to photograph, nonetheless, something always turns up.

i may have moved in that time so sending you my address would be a good thing regardless. i always feel better knowing my books are going to a place where they'll be enjoyed. seeing the way some look in thrift shops just makes me cringe.

that's been happening to me the last third of my p365. i've taken some really great shots, i think, but for the most part i've had to actually look for things to take a picture of just to fulfill my photo for the day.
