December 29

Today was a busy busy day. I received a text msg in the morning reminding me that i was supossed to be making gumbo for a friend. My understaning was they needed it for the 1st not on the 29th. He now tells me he's going to pick it up that night. yikes. i haven't even shopped. plus, i'm taking Nana to see dancing with the stars (which i mistakenly referred to as "dances with wolves" -- easy mistake) this evening.

I dashed to about 5 different stores picking up the ingredients that i needed. He was paying me to make it, but because this was for a work potluck for a LOT of people, it didn't make sense to do a gumbo with shellfish -- way too expensive. i did it with shrimp, chicken, sausage and ham. threw in some flaked crab, but no crab legs (until later for the part i kep for myself :-D) Anyway, I made a 16 quart pot full of it for him and rice. It was decent, but not fabulous, because I rushed.

making gumbo

oh yeah, and dances with stars (or wolves, or whatever the hell it is) the grammas were thrilled so I got big brownie points for that one.... I have never watched the show, so it really wasn't my thing.

Hey dear Bella, I've been catching up on the two weeks I was away - nice to see the diary so active again, and I imagine the 2008 version is even more so - haven't got there yet. Loved the freeway and the Christmas lights, delightful to see your feet and a pensive self-portrait rounding out your year. See you in 2008!

Rob -- it's alive and kickin' over there.... (I'm off to a good year with my feet over there LOL -- I think, I'm on to something ... maybe a series.. I don't think I could do 365 of scenes with my feet, but who knows... maybe....)

Yeah SSC... I must be feeling better because it sure shows it in my photos.... I didn't talk about it in the diary, but this year, I spent about half of the year recovering and resting in bed. I had surgery in July and didn't return to work till end of August and then I was only there 4 hours a day till the end of the year. The second surgery in November put me back off of my feet for a couple weeks). During a lot of that time, I was on medication for pain -- my creativity sure did suffer as well as my subject matter -- there's only so much that I can capture in my four walls and on the trip to take jade to school and myself to and from work -- lots of photos shot from the car..... I look forward to exploring creativity again in 2008. I have enjoyed seeing the common factors in my pix throughout the year -- there's a few sets that I've identified. the trees, the moon, circles, sunsets, self portraits and jade, etc.

Looking back over the past year -- I'm glad I did this -- I'm glad stuck with it and gave myself permission to falter every once and a while and I'm glad I got back on track each time. More than anything I am grateful for the people I've met in this group.

To Life!
