Abeyance.

It means being inactive or suspended.

That’s how we were last weekend in Washington. It was raining. (Of course. I did mention we were in the Seattle area right?)

So, while everybody read, because I couldn’t keep my mind on anything anymore, I took out the camera and shot things.

    Love your photos and captions as usual. We really did have some dreadful weather this last weekend, didn't we?
    Also, I love the book your dad is reading in that fabulous shot.

    Great pictures, as always. I love the thought of laying in bed reading on a rainy day. (We have those same cups!)

    Thank you :D.
    And that book, from the few passages he read to me, sounds awesome.
    I heard a few of Yancey's talks on Youtube. The guy's pretty good!

    I love those Ikea cups. We use them when kids are over, or when on trips. They're so easy to carry!
    Thanks Jewels!

    You are getting more and more creative with your camera all the time, LT! I REALLY love the photos of your family's feet and reading materials. Your brother's book put a smile on my face. 🙂

    Both your eye and your camera are incredible. I love the richness of the photos you post–the colors and depth–it's almost like they're 3-D sometimes. Keep it up!

    He loves Animal Ark. And I think it's great because I did too. So we have that series in common. They're great reads…

    And thank you, I'm so glad you enjoyed the photos.
