(Photo - current desk shot.... just keeping this real!)
I had to sit and think this morning.... what had actually arrived this week... there are always the shopping catalogues (which I am avoiding) ... perhaps my brand new bank card (a shiny new orange one)....and a few beautiful new pieces of artwork loving created by the kids and adorning my fridge.
But where is the story in that..... seeing as I always look upon this prompt as means to telling a story.
It becomes blatantly clear that my story telling is in its infancy when you pop over to Sians Blog and have a read.... I am spell bound by her writing style. Not only Sian....but she attracts a gathering of lovely warm bloggers who all weave fantastic stories into the everyday. I can get caught up so easily there.
So Im trying to be more observant.... and use better choices of words... Im not banning 'nice"..'good' or 'amazing' but Im being mindful not to use them in every description and to let other words have a chance to shine.
Ooops....I slipped off track for a bit.... so back to the memo..mail and me... This last week has been time for some serious holiday planning for next year. Or rather it should have been.... it seems between my shift work and his extra hours at work our planets have barely aligned.
We do have a rough idea.... that includes Alaska and Canada. From all accounts I've read and heard from others that have visited .... its spectacular and we wont be disappointed. I can honestly admit to being excited just looking at the brochure covers. Lets hope this week we get the chance to read the brochures and investigate further...we wouldn't want to miss a 'must see!'... on that note...if you have any suggestions or experiences I would love to hear.
