I’ve neglected the blog over the past few weeks.
By way of explanation: We took a 9-day vacation to Chattanooga, Tennessee, at Christmas.
I’d intended to write at least a couple of posts for the weekly photo challenges. After all, as I was packing, the week’s theme was “Gathering”. In theory, it would have been easy to take a quick pic of all of our stuff heaped in piles on the living room floor and upload it. In reality, I was just too exhausted from all of the trip prep to do so.
Once we arrived home, I did snap a quick picture of the mountains of laundry waiting for my attention as I unpacked. I’d planned to post it for that week’s challenge (“Now”). But I got busy actually doing the laundry. A day later my brother- and sister-in-law arrived from halfway around the world, family time took precedence, and the pic I’d taken was no longer a true representation of my present.
We’ve been back for more than a week. I had really hoped to write about our vacation before now. But Mowgli got a cold on Christmas Eve and shared it with me and Hubs, and we’ve all been a bit under the weather. Hubs had to go back to work this week, and Mowgli and I have been struggling to get back into a good homeschool routine. I’ve thought a lot about what I’d like to write, I just haven’t taken the time to do it.
I have finally looked through all of the photos I took on our trip–I guess it’s a small step in the right direction. And in looking through them, I found a couple that I think fit this week’s challenge, Circle.
So, while it isn’t the post I’d intended/planned/hoped to write, this is the best I can do for this week’s challenge. At least, if I want to get it in before the next one is announced.
I hope you enjoy these pictures of the New York Peace Memorial at Point Park on Lookout Mountain in Tennessee.
