Time's a tickin'...




"Tick-Tock"



It's a back to reality day.  Thing #3 is back at school, the Better Half back at work, and moi?  I'm back in the saddle.  Just as it is nice to escape reality on occasion...so too is a return to it most welcome.  Hitting the gym, hitting the de-decorating, hitting the laundry, hitting the trash with all the holiday junk food sitting in my fridge and cupboards, and hitting the photo link ups that have been on a 
hiatus from their OWN reality for a few weeks now (oh how I have MISSED you!). 

Welcome 2012!  Time's a tickin'.

  5. Yes- it's certainly time to get back into the swing of things. I hope I can get a ton accomplished this morning before everyone emerges from their rooms & the chaos ensues. :)

  9. Don't remind me - my house is in disarray, and my presidential booster club duties start back into full swing tomorrow with concessions at basketball. It's only the first couple of days into 2012 and I'm already feeling in a funk!

    But your photo and texture is perfect!

  11. You know Kathy, you are so right in the fact it is good to be able to escape reality sometimes. But getting back to "normal" is always a good feeling, too! I agree whole heartedly. And that's a gorgeous photograph with perfection texture! It fits your blog post and thoughts so well today. Happy Tuesday! :) xo

  18. I look at photos that have been edited with texture such as this and just sigh - what a beautiful job. Thank you for sharing your recipe. I've been a member of Kim's photoshop test kitchen for 8 months now and still am not brave enough to enter the tuesday texture challenge.

  26. Gorgeous, love the vintage clock, composition and beautiful texture work! We still have a few weeks of school holidays here in Australia, but I'm well and truly behind, so much for the New years resolution of being more organised! Happy new Year Kathy!
