It’s the first Ten on Ten of 2015 and this project couldn’t have come at a better time. We are in Houston visiting family and it’s been a bit of a difficult trip. We dealt with some sickness and dreary, colder-than-usual weather that kept us inside for a few days. Last night, my grandfather fell and has been admitted to the hospital. He is ok but needs a lot of care. Today was a hard day for everyone. I’ll likely extend my trip so we can stay a little longer. I’ve just been thinking about him all day. I have so many memories of him from my childhood. He or my grandmother used to pick me up from school so I spent a lot of time with him. I remember using his computer to play Oregon Trail and how his study used to smell of oil paints. I’m an only grandchild too.
So today was a little disheveled and not what I’d planned. But what’s funny is that kids are always there. Always needing you to hold them, feed them and play with them. And sometimes it feels like that’s exactly what I need too.
I Instagrammed most of today’s set. It was hard to keep up with! It’s not something I’d plan to do every month, but it was a good challenge using the phone and writing about each photo. My Instagram in here @glimmersnaps.
