One week can include many contrasts. Willow's Week certainly did. I'm thankful for the contrasts in my week because they keep my week interesting. In noting the contrasts, I can also see the blessings which I share as Friday Fave Fives.
1. A visit to California Science Center near downtown Los Angeles contained the longest chronological contrast. The Cleopatra Exhibit focused on the time period of the Century before Christ's birth.
2. On the same visit to CSC, I got up close and personal with the Endeavor Space Shuttle. That's Twenty-first Century.
3-4. Contrasts exist in geology and geography, too. This week I experienced the view from 6400 feet with a 360 degree panorama of the Mogollon Rim in Arizona with its unending pine forests and also the low, hot desert of Palm Springs with the in between of saguarro cactus, manzanitas, and yellow sand. We are spending Thanksgiving weekend in Arizona. My cousin lives in the mountains north of Phoenix (that's where we found the more-than-a-mile-high views) and our son and daughter-in-law live in Phoenix. Both areas are definitely contrasts, although beautiful and enchanting, to my coastal climate along the Pacific Ocean.
5. It may be Thanksgiving but I'm knitting for Christmas. Right now, it's Christmas stockings for each member of the family. Currently, I'm working on stocking #7. (Will I finish by Christmas Morning??)
*I am again experiencing the very annoying difficulty of being unable to post any photos. Much of the enjoyment I derive from blogging comes from sharing my photos, so I am seriously disappointed.*
