I Saw Sunday Week 35
For I Saw Sunday Week 35
_ This week has been a blur of comings and goings, hellos and goodbyes. My youngest daughter, who lives about 150 miles from here, supervises an inventory crew. Her crew was called in to inventory a department store a few miles from my home. She had a 45 minute lunch break, so my oldest daughter and I brought her a late breakfast and we sat in my car and laughed and teased for our brief visit. It was all over way too soon.
_ Started a new venture here on this site. A collaboration of images and verse. Jinksy and I are doing a swap. This site on Tuesdays, her site on Thursdays. We’d love to have feedback as well as a wider collaborative experience. I have titled it simply Collab #1, and explain a bit how it came about. In the post, you can find Jinksy’s reciprocal Thursday post URL Hope you take a look and leave your thoughts. https://claudetteellinger.wordpress.com/2011/05/09/tuesday-collab-1/
_ On Wednesday, had lunch with my sister and some of her friends at an unusual restaurant called The Elegant Moose, which has a definite bistro atmosphere about it. Didn’t think to take any pics, still too new with the camera to remember I even have it at times. We had been there the month before and had delicious salads. Mine was a Cranberry Chicken with cashews over spinich. We decided that this time we’d try their incredible list of desserts. I had what was called The Parisian Street Vender Crepes, which turned out to be a very sophisticated version of a Turtle Sundae served over two very thin crepes. My sister had a Lemon Curd over Crepes, and another of the women had Cherries Jubilee over Crepes. Needless to say we shared, were more than satisfied, and I came home and took a nap.
_ Thursday I discovered that one of my favorite prompt sites is closing: Big Tent Poetry. Stunned. I did a farewell poem to the site where I started my poetry prompt journey. You can find it here:

_ Thoughout the week, I have continued to play with the digital art. It is a stress reliever, and more necessary than usual. Here is the latest:
Hope you come and join us and tell us about your week.
