This was my favorite picture in the slideshow. I found this photographer's photos really fascinating.
So last week I finished putting together the sideshow for Kirtsy.com which was so much fun. I found so many great pictures it was hard to whittle them down to the 15-20 that they wanted. The best part was that I learned more about how to manipulate pictures and text from the internet.
. . . and I started this.
Last week I started a neighborhood book club. I noticed that there are quite a few people home during the day and I have been wanting an excuse to get to know our neighbors better. I actually planned to start it when school started at the beginning of August but I have been a big scaredy cat. I made myself print them up last week. I'm cheap and I hate to waste ink so I knew I was committing myself to that date. Once they were printed I would be forced to hand them out in a timely manner.
Because we've only met a few of our neighbors briefly, I was so nervous about how I would be recieved but off I went. I received lots of different reactions.
Surprise "Oh! What a good idea!"
Suspicion, "I'm not going to buy anything."
Rejection, *hands me back the invitation* "I have chemical allergies, I can't be with groups of people." (I wonder if I could set her up on Skype?)
Mostly graciousness, "I love this!" "I'll be there." "What can I bring?" "Count me in."
True story: One of my neighbors has a long white beard and is named Santa Claus. He showed me his drivers licence. :)
I headed out the door so nervous but it ended up being a lovely evening visiting with my whole street.
