Family Life- Saying Goodbye

elementcar-opt

After shedding some tears, I finally said goodbye to my 2004 Honda Element. How could a piece of metal on wheels cause me to cry? In one word- memories. Lots of them. Camping trips in upstate New York, family vacations, toting my son to & from school, bringing home dozens of plants (including a large dogwood tree with rootball!!), hauling prized antiques (like my fireplace mantel) and garage sale finds, construction materials, not to mention plenty of visits to the vet with the dog. I’ll certainly miss that car.

A Mother’s Day gift arranged in the kitchen sink from my teenage son. In lieu of a card, there’s a pink duct tape message. :)

I was hoping to spend the morning photographing outdoors, but my camera  literally stopped working. All that showed up was a series of black boxes where images should have been. Even after replacing the battery there was nothing. I ended up taking my camera to a store to have someone look at it. The good news- the camera body is now on its way to being fixed. The bad news- I won’t have it back for several weeks. In the meantime, I’m going through a box of my Dad’s roll film cameras to see if I can use one of them.
