since one of my favorite things to photograph is old buildings, especially brick ones, i thought it might be fun to do a collage series featuring well, you know, old brick buildings. actually, this one started out with a window; i've been wanting to do a window for some time now. then it just naturally seemed to evolve into an old brick building. it was fun and i've already started the second in the series. i may wake up tomorrow morning and decide to add a few more details to this one. we shall see.
my dad was able to go home from the hospital today and will have physical therapy and a visiting nurse come into the house for treatment. hubby and i spent part of the day there ensuring that mom can take care of him and that everything was in place to make him as safe and comfortable as possible. it was a relief to get him home where i know he will rest and eat better. thanks for all your support and prayers!
while in hagerstown, hubby and i drove around looking for houses for sale. we're thinking of buying a small, older fixer-upper that we can stay in on the weekends and eventually live in when we retire. it was fun and we already have our eyes on a couple of cute ones that are listed at remarkably low prices. it would be nice to be able to go to hagerstown on the weekends to spend more time with my folks and also my kids and grandkids. wish us luck!
p.s. thanks to christine for letting me know that this piece would be a good addition to the creative tuesdays art contest hosted by toast. his blog is all about tea, so wonderfully designed and a delightful read. be sure to go over for a spot of tea and a sit down!
