There is an eloquence in true enthusiasm. – Edgar Allan Poe
Just when I thought there was nothing I could photograph today, I was wrong. (But that’s a usual occurrence in my world, just don’t tell my hubby …)
Today’s mystery “what is it?!?” picture was inspired by a pattern. Can you tell? Do you know?
What Is It?!?
What Was That?!? Yesterday’s Picture (Day 132)
I mentioned that yesterday’s “what is it?!?” mystery picture had a story behind it, so it’s just about time to tell that story. But first, let me tell you what others thought this mystery subject looked like. Gail said, “You must be spinning around while taking this picture of a purple hat!” Then Andrew chimed in, “Aww…Gail said it before I did.” But alas, it’s not a purple hat nor me spinning around. LOL! Girish thought it looks like satin fabric. Not that either. So now for the story, which reveals the mystery identity!
When I became pregnant with our son, Ian, our group of friends threw us a baby shower and the women gave me what had become a tradition as a gift for the pregnant women … a glass “egg” paperweight … which celebrated my pregnancy and impending birth. Because I was among the last of us to become pregnant (and had been trying for some time), that glass egg was very symbolic and treasured. I wanted my own! Since yesterday was Mother’s Day, I thought it mighty appropriate to use that glass egg as the subject. Here’s my “pregnant egg.”
P.S. What a great baby shower gift idea! 🙂
