SPT Challenge March 3
Self-Portrait Tuesday ..... for March 3, as per Lelly's Musings:
"Take Self-Portraits through the entire month of March utilizing the number eight."
I think this is a clever idea, for a week. Not for a whole month. It might be different if I had an eight year old, or could lose eight pounds, or had thought to take a photo during Saturday morning's soccer game when the wind chill was FREAKING ONLY EIGHT DEGREES AND WE WERE OUTSIDE FREEZING OUR BUNS OFF ...... but I didn't.
So I'm left with this lame photo for today:
Me, preparing for my monthly Book Club get together which was held last night at 8pm. (See? I told you it was a lame interpretation of the number eight .....)
This is the same Book Club I attended last August and then didn't go back for three months due to scheduling conflicts, then felt too embarrassed to show up after being gone so long. One of the members encouraged me to re-attend this month and I'm glad I did. I met two ladies beforehand for dinner, then a larger group from my church to discuss this month's selection, The Secret Life of Bees, by Sue Monk Kidd.
I enjoyed myself. Hot chocolate from Starbucks, a good book, and good company. Really, what else does a girl need? I definitely plan to go again next month, when they're reading "Freakology" or "Freakorama" or "Freakonomics" or something like that. Clearly I was too hopped up on sugar from the hot chocolate when the Starbucks employee kicked us out at 9:30 to really pay attention to the title.
In the meantime, I've got seven days to think up something, *anything*, with the number eight in it for next week's photo .... suggestions, anyone?
