Family, Holidays, ZArchive (Old Blog)

Join the challenge!  Post a picture to match the word of the day and put a link in the comments.  You’ll be amazed at how differently the word gets interpreted. 

Map (from Wikipedia) – A map is a visual representation of an area—a symbolic depiction highlighting relationships between elements of that space such as objects, regions, and themes.

From Christmas nearly forty years ago – these shields are the cantons that my grandparents came from.  My grandfather was a Swiss immigrant; my grandmother’s father was also.  My joke was that growing up, I thought everyone’s grandparents spoke with thick accents.  My grandmother did not, but my cousins other grandparents did, my schoolmates grandparents did – my church even had German services until I was nearly out of grade school. 

It wasn’t until high school that I figured out that was not true of most other familes.  :)

The word for tomorrow is WEIRD.  That should be fun!
