Day 13

Cowrie shell backpack from Pier 1. Only the Lord knows when I bought this – Nia was little, or maybe my college days. The black cotton faded, but the embroidered piece remains color-filled. No pockets, just a beautiful black hole. Love it.

eddie bauer backpack

eddie bauer backpack with my blessed water bottle

my eddie bauer backpack comes to the rescue once again. my brown leather laptop bag’s strap broke, so i went to my old standby. it takes a licking and keeps on hauling all of my stuff. i remember getting this at the eddie bauer outlet store in jeffersonville, oh several years ago – maybe 10 or more – because i loved the color. while green is my favorite, and i love purple too, there’s nothing like mustard or yellow to brighten my mood.

when my oldest n was a toddler, she was diagnosed with asthma. i read that yellow is good for asthmatics in some book about decorating with color. i can’t remember why, and i didn’t mention it to her. when we moved into our house a couple of years later, she announced that she wanted to paint her room yellow. so we did! i don’t know if it helped her asthma or not, but i can’t say that it hurt. within three years, her symptoms were virtually nonexistent. we never repainted the room. i don’t mess with stuff like that.

so i’m home again, after several long and productive days. so this photo is of the bag where i will soon be – in my bed, hitting a z. thanks be to God. peace.
