Where I Stand

is not about religion or politics or which side of the fence I'm on, it's about documenting the places I go, both the mundane and the unmundane. By taking these "feet" shots as my daughter calls them, I feel like I'm keeping a visual calendar of the places I've gone this summer or at least some of the things I've done. But I have to admit, sometimes the photos are taken just for fun.

I've been to my favorite place, Barnes and Noble, many times this summer. Although I prefer smaller independent bookstores like this one in Asheville...

Pool time at the beach. We prefer surf and sand, but afterwards, a quick dip into the pool leaves us feeling a bit more refreshed.

The front door mat signaled welcome home recently after our trip to the beach. And, finally, my feet are in the kitchen, something kind of rare for me during the school year, but it feels perfect during the summer months when I have time to do it right.

We've got a few more trips planned, and I can't wait to take pictures - not just of where I stand but everything else I'll be seeing.

What about you? Where are you headed this summer?

For more mosaics visit Mary at Little Red House.
And thanks, Mary, for hosting Mosaic Monday!

Love it, Roban. I think I shall paint my toes right now and sneak out and buy a new pair of sandals. :-) I can't wait to see where your feet land.


PS - Re: Publix
My friend Karen works for one near Orlando. She used to take pictures of all the cakes. Made me wish we had one. You can take me when I come one day.

I would love to, Annemarie! I hope that can happen in the not so distant future!

What an original way to catalogue a summer!

Hi Roban,

That looks exactly like my kind of bookstore. We love bookstores at our house; my husband and I met at a bookstore when I was working there many years ago. :)

Thanks for your visit to my blog and for your kind comments. I noticed you mentioned this bookstore is in Asheville. Are you a North Carolina blogger by any chance? Just wondered because I live in NC myself.

Have a great week!

I'm not in North Carolina, but I love it there. We've vacationed in North Carolina off and on through the years, and my in-laws had a house in the Linville area up until a few years ago. Asheville's one of my favorite places. Brevard, too.

Those are super-fantastic shoes, you know. Pretty darn good pedicure, too.
