It's here, the final day of March 2022 Slice of Life Challenge. We have one day left to slice. I'm not sure what compelled me to start a seven-day countdown, but it's been a delight.
While I worked on this slice in the wee hours (think 2 am) of Wednesday morning there was one other family member awake. The youngest member of daughter and son-in-law's family, Oliver, was chattering contentedly in his walk-in closet accommodations. He was directly under the upstairs bedroom and his babbling provided a lilting accompaniment for my writing.
One of my favorite ways to end the month is to count my slices by topic. With no further ado, here's my numerical wrap up of this month's slices (with the #1s in bold, a nod to this last day of slicing):
One slice with no comments (Not any more! Thank you, Julieanne!)
One slice responding to the invite for Leigh Anne's slicer party
One walking slice
One rambling farm woman slice (AKA if you give a mouse a cookie slice)
2 collection slices
2 spider slices
2 cookie slices
3 ancestor slices
4 poetic slices
5 spring slices
5 book slices
7 memory slices
8 grandchildren slices
11 numerically linked slices
20 slices with pictures
And just in case you're wondering, I recognize that the total is more than 31 slices (some slices fit in more than one category). Add them all up and you get 73, the year I graduated from high school (I know, most of you weren't even born then!).
This was my eleventh year of participating in the challenge, but I almost stopped at ten. Thanks to Leigh Anne Eck's post on Facebook, I reconsidered my decision and jumped in at the last minute.
