This is my tenth year to share a slice of life every day in March and the first time that I've written slices in advance. I'm an avowed plantser, with the emphasis on pantser (a writer who flies by the seat of her pants, with an occasional spurt of planning). I might know that I'm planning to write a certain slice some time during the month, but writing slices ahead of time is not in my wheelhouse. Until this week when I decided that I could plan and write ahead and step away for a bit. We are headed to our son's place for a quick visit.
So for the next four days, I will post my pre-written slice and leave three comments. But then it's back to savoring the moments with Teddy, almost five and Ruthie, ten months. I'm sure I'll have some fodder for future slices, but while I'm there I'll be focusing on play and conversation and good food with our son's family. We saw them in September when they drove here. This time since husband and I are vaccinated, we are the ones doing the traveling.
Even though it's been six months since Ruthie and I met, I'm really hoping that she will recognize me from our almost daily conversations on Face Time. Take a peek at a few of the pics I've snapped this month. (Note: Even though this shows that I posted on Wednesday, it was already Thursday on the east coast, the time that counts for posting!)
Aww! I think she will. My nieces both live in Florida and are about your granddaughter's age. We communicate via Facetime and such, but when I was last able to see them in person they knew who I was! Thanks for including pictures.ReplyDelete
Look at those sweet faces! I keep in touch with my nephews and niece (all 3 years old) on FaceTime and when I visited them last month after 6 months without seeing them in person and they definitely knew who I was.ReplyDelete
Oh my gosh, these PHOTOS! Precious! I hope you have a wonderful visit and I am so impressed that you pre-posted. I write a couple of posts ahead if I can and schedule them daily at midnight, but have never done more than that. I pan kind of loosely - this year with the ABC approach is more than I normally plan, and it's taken me in fun directions. Again - happy visiting! I so bet Ruthie will know you. That's certainly a Slice in the making!ReplyDelete
I cannot believe that Teddy is almost 5. I remember when he was Ruthie's age. And she is absolutely adorable! I hope you have a blast!!!!!ReplyDelete
Oh so cute! You will have the best time with those two! Are you traveling with lots of books to share? I bet she will remember. Little Man remember is Uncle Pete and Tia from Facetime when they come from NY. Enjoy your family!ReplyDelete
