i was tagged a few days ago (before the whirlwind trip to the west coast) by lynne of wheatlands news for a picture meme and so i'm getting to it now. here's what it's all about...you take the 4th picture in the 4th folder on your computer and post it and explain it. no editing, no selecting another picture.
naturally, being me, i immediately broke the rule, but only because the 4th folder had only 2 pictures in it, so i'll admit i decided not to count it, so this is technically the 4th picture from the 5th folder, but i didn't edit it, that much i promise!
the folder is called "christmas 2002" and the picture is of a ruffle-butt feetie pajama-clad sabin and our black persian cat, fitch (we also had a himalayan called abercrombie) near the christmas tree. i believe that's a hair band around sabin's wrist and fitchie is trying to play with it.
what's fun for me about the picture, other than remembering sabin so little (she was closing in on 2 then and now she's going to be 8 in a few days), is seeing the rug we found in morocco, which is still on the floor in our big kitchen/living room. the low leather kaare klint safari chair in the background is out in the studio space these days. we've painted the stairs white and there is a new oak floor instead of the pine floor seen here. and where the tree is standing is today where our refrigerator, kitchen sink and dishwasher are. it makes me smile to think of how far we've come. on the other hand, some things don't change...we still have that same color of yellow on the walls.
i'd love to see the 4th picture in your 4th folder and hear your story, so if you'd like to share, consider yourself tagged.
