Favorite {Photo} Friday #39--Sunglasses

Heya Friday, how the heck did you get here already?

This week was busy; I started my Avon Walk training, Verizon dug up our yard (and all the other yards on our street) to install Fios, I got my first jewelry order from Australia (!), I checked out the Pompeii exhibit at the National Gallery, and our computer started dying. I started a blog post about the Avon Walk training but then the computer gave a nasty "hard drive death is imminent" message and everything else kind of got postponed while we made sure everything was backed up. (Hopefully I'll post an Avon Walk update over the weekend.)

While I was out and about this week my beloved sunglasses died. They were just cheap things I picked up somewhere, but I've had them for who-knows-how-long and I loved them. The hinge broke and I'm taking it as a sign from the universe that I should start wearing some of the other dozen pairs of sunglasses I own. But before I do, here's my favorite photo of the sunglasses. Oh, I'm in there, too.

Daniele took this in Italy... we'd all come onto base for a Thunderbirds air show for the Fourth of July in 2007. He stole my camera and snapped away long enough that I'd stopped paying attention to him and trying to avoid the camera. :)

Oh, sunglasses, you've served me well and often, far and wide. I'll miss you!

LOTS up this weekend. LOTS. I need to do more Avon Walk training (hopefully 12 miles on Saturday and 6 miles Sunday); make 51 charms for a swap I'm in with the Inspired gang; scrapbook a couple pages for a gnome; get a bunch of packages prepped and sent; place a silver supply order (which means doing some inventory); compose and send out my first Avon Walk e-mail plea for pledges, which means I need to remind myself a hundred times that I am not asking for money for me, I'm asking for money for breast cancer research and programs; find another pair of those sunglasses I have around here somewhere; prepare my jewelry supplies for travel; and do enough laundry that I'll be able to pack a suitcase. Because on Tuesday I'm headed out to see one of my favorite people, Kellie, in one of my favorite places, Seattle!

Have a great weekend! :)

Oh, I feel for you. My favorite pair of sunglasses were $3.50 on our honeymoon and there have been none like them before or since. They fell out of the diaper bag (I think with help...) and got run over by my own foot on the gas in my own vehicle. Oh, the salt in the wound!!! I really hope you are able to find another pair of sunglasses that will serve you as well.

I can't wait to hear how you are doing for The Avon Walk -- good luck getting all your training in. And breaking in your shoes so that you hopefully don't get such bad blisters this year.

And I can't wait to see what you create with Kellie. Hope you have the best best best time!!! xo
