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!)
