This is a rare view of Daughter the Younger's basketball shoes without her feet in them. Yes, it's basketball season. That means that I shall be sitting on bleachers (if I'm lucky) or a gym floor until Spring. Both girls are playing the local Booster ball, but this year the little one is also playing on a Select team. In case you're wondering, that means a game or practice almost every evening, with games on the weekends. They're a lot of fun to watch. I've just got to build up the butt callouses to endure it.
My huge, mom-like bag contains my notebook/sketchbook, a copy of "The Magician's Nephew", my camera, my Zen and my free hand is usually holding my travel mug full of tea.
You know...just the essentials.
