Pictures and More Pictures

Drinking lots of tea and a variety of activities have kept me occupied during this time of confinement ['social distancing']. Today I've been scanning photos. I set the card table up in my office to accommodate two drawers of my pictures, and a large tote filled with my mother's photos sits on the floor nearby.

In addition to the two drawers, I also had a shoe box full of pictures.  I smiled when I looked at the old box from Kinney Shoes.  Do you remember that shoe store?  They went out of business in 1998.  The writing on the lid indicates I got the shoes when I was in Jr. High School [1959-1961].  Look at the price - $3.99!  Those were the days!

I don't know which one of us has the most pictures.  When my mother passed away in 2014 she had boxes and boxes of them.  I sorted and pitched a lot [people I didn't know], gave a lot to relatives, and ended up with one tote.  

I think I have enough pictures to scan to last through the duration of the Coronavirus confinement.  When I'm done, I'll have Shutterfly photo books made.  

I love my daily devotional book, Jesus Always, by Sarah Young © 2016, but yesterday's devotion was as if she wrote it amidst the current Coronavirus pandemic.  She concluded with a Scripture reference found in Philippians 4:6-7 "Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God.  And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus."

Be safe and stay well.

  1. I'm working from home but I need to scan a bunch of old photos, too. Thankfully, while my Dad was still alive I asked him about many of the ones we found at his house, and put the info on stickynotes on the back of the photos. But I need to do something more with them. Good for you for scanning and making photobooks with yours!
