I've only been at this Photo-A-Day since February 18th, but have enjoyed it immensely already. Looking back over just these few shots here, I can see how it is making a scrapbook of sorts. Wouldn't something like this have been grand to have as far back as our BHS days?
In any case, here's looking forward. I'll do my very best to keep this up. So far, it's mostly manageable.
Again, I'd like to invite any of you out there reading (is anyone out there?) to do the same.

Oh, I adored this film! I've never seen anything quite like it, such innovative eye-candy, and a story that had my heart aching and singing at the same time.
It's not going to be like anything you've seen before. And if you feel you've seen enough shoot-em-ups to last a lifetime, then this will be quite the breath of fresh air.

I saw this on eBay where the seller identified it as a "Lebanese steamer." I've never seen one before. Can anyone tell me if it is indeed a Lebanese steamer? How does it work?

This is sort of a cheat picture because it wasn't taken today. But I think it represents well my world today -- a day of thinking of and remembering her visit. Just a week ago, Star Light, Star Bright (my other and oldest daughter), Kitten (my 2 year old granddaughter) and I went to Comanche Trails Park. It was a warm, sunny day and we intended to go geocaching there. We ended up merely taking a nice walk through the park, and then the girls horsed around on the monkey bars, acting like, well, like monkeys.
Yay! S.L. just called me from the airport and has announced she'll come home again in August. That news is the perfect antidote for feeling blue today.
P.S. We did go geogcaching another day and successfully found the cache.
- I have been very busy.
- I haven't done much BHS'ing.
- I want to change that.
If the last couple of months are any indication, I have been a very bad friend to my BHS buddies. But you guys are very important to me, so I vow to make a better effort.
Beginning today, I'll make time to take a single picture for this blog. If I have time, I'll write more. At the very least, though, I'll post a picture of something from my little life.
And wouldn't it be amazing if we started a whole group of BHS bloggers who did the same?
The tree I most associate with Lebanon is not the Cedar. For me it's the Umbrella Pine.

I recently rented this beautiful, wholesome film from 1997. It made me think of another runner, named Ali also.

I collect Lebanese cookbooks and this is my most treasured one, a gift.
