I've been having a wonderful week with family and friends in Michigan. This afternoon I'll get to see The Dragonfly for the first time in almost 2 years, and I'll meet her Little Mister for the first time ever. I'm psyched. The May Queen has been playing in the snow, playing (and fighting!) with her cousins, and is being spoiled by grandparents and other relatives. I've been marveling at how my high school friends don't possibly look old enough to have teenagers themselves (we don't look like our parents did, do we?) and reminding myself, via old photos, that permed hair really ISN'T a good idea (not that I was planning on it, or anything...).
And now it's a new year, and, as promised, it's time for some new Monday Missions. I'm terrible at resolutions, as evidenced by my complete failure last year, yet still I will put before you the friendly challenge to try to do at least one mission a month. Trust me, they're fun!
Your Monday Missions for January 2009, should you choose to accept them, are to write posts in the style of...
Jan 5th - a prediction. Imagine yourself as Nostradamus, read your tea leaves or just try to predict the weather.
Jan 12th - A sales pitch for your house, from the point of view of your house (if these walls could talk...). Idea courtesy of Bayou Belle
Jan 19th - A photo (or series of photos) with the conversation that goes along with it. I have totally stolen this idea from the fabulous posts at Ewe are Here wherein she imagines the conversations between her boys as she tries to get their picture (like this one ). The conversation does not have to be between people.
Jan 26th- A diary entry
I wish you all a very Happy New Year!
