These photos aren't nearly as exciting as my Europe pictures. It's back to day to day life in Seattle. I won't be blogging as routinely as before but sometimes this is a good way to share pictures although uploading takes forever on a dial up connection. This is the inside of my garden shed after a thorough cleaning on Labor Day. I had to take a picture because it won't stay this way for long.
My blog's title originated in July 2004 as I was preparing to send my then 16 year old daughter to Annecy, France as an exchange student. It was to be a 10 and 1/2 month separation that I was sure I could not endure. BUT, thanks to the internet and blogging I survived her adventures outside of our 'nest'. Once she returned, I thought of changing the title but realized that 10 and 1/2 Months was a fitting description of the cycle of my teaching life too. Now that I am retired the days and months have much less structure but the title remains out of nostalgia for my teaching days.
