Am back again on track with the photo challenge. Had been busy the last 3 weekends. Will try to make up for it this time :-)
Week 17 first...Color.
How does color affect my mood? Profoundly! It brings an instant smile, a real happy one, and brightens up my day.
What made my birthday bright and sunshiny was this drawing my youngest niece sent to me
The drawing has everything I like...colors, lots of them, and a huge naughty smile :-)
The crocheted ball is something I picked up at the San Jose Amtrak station on my way to Santa Barbara. I have no clue what I will do with it...but I had to get it...see how vibrant the colors are...how energetic it makes you feel
This has been the easiest challenge for me. I cannot imagine a world without color, thankfully I don't live in a cold, snowy place. I would not like that much.
To see more colors...head on to Sally blog.
I have one more set of pictures to share...for week 15.
I had to think quite a bit for this, trying to think of the oldest thing I have. I tried to remember what I had brought with me when I moved here in 1997, and I had my subject.
This is my Dad's briefcase. I brought my "important papers", diplomas, certificates, etc in it. And used it to store more paperwork as it accumulated...until I bought a filing box.
This briefcase brought back so many memories. My dad is enjoying retirement now, but in his younger days, he was a force to reckon with.
Scuffed as it is, it still reminds me of those days...when I was daddy's little girl, totally in awe of her superman daddy (and two things these are still true :-) I even bought a mini version of this bag when I started working at my first job. Sweet days, those were! I miss my daddy, can't wait to see him again!
