Whew, what a week it's been! Emma was quite sick for several days, including Christmas, Kate came down sick the day after Christmas, and I'm still nursing the same cold I've had for almost three weeks, which seems to have settled in my chest. Through it all, though, we've had a pretty wonderful time. There's been surprisingly little crankiness, considering how lousy everyone has been feeling, and we've all had a good time playing with our new toys, reading our new books, and watching our new videos.
The Groovy Girl Boutique was a big hit and I was really pleased with how it all came out. You can find lots more pictures of it here.
My parents got me a brand-new, very fancy digital SLR for Christmas, so expect my posts to become even more photo-laden! I can't wait till I'm feeling well enough to really start playing with it.
I've had a few poems accepted in the past couple of weeks. I'll post more info when they are published. Tomorrow begins a new year, the perfect time for new writing. Flashathon, poem-a-day, or just jotting down a few choice words -- if you're a writer, I hope you'll join me in celebrating the new year with something fresh.
Here's a prompt to get you started: pick one moment/incident/occasion/event in your life from the past year and use it as the jumping-off point for a story or poem. Feel free to post your work in the comments or provide a link to your own blog.
Best wishes for a healthy, happy, and peace-filled 2008!
