Word of the Week – Week # 14

Hello and Welcome!

It’s hard for me to believe that we are already more than one-forth of the way through 2021.

Our word of the week, or actually phrase of the week, is Tempus Fugit.

According to Merriam-Webster tempus fugit is a Latin phrase meaning time flies.

On Easter Sunday as I sat in our living room with my Aunt Donna and my two youngest daughters looking through a box full of family photos this phrase came to mind repeatedly. Spanning 5 decades these photos took me back to various periods or events of my life, many seeming like they were but a short while ago. It was a fun day of reminiscing and telling the girls stories of times and events before they were born. I was again reminded how important it is to live in the moment.

Thanks for reading.

  1. We just had the photo album out too. We were reminiscing about #3 graduation dress that I had made. It was funny how clearly we remembered the dress and how much she loved it, but not the details of picking the pattern or shopping for fabric. You never know what little thing you may do for someone that may become a memorable moment.

    1. I had a lot of pictures of her wedding. The girls really enjoyed seeing them – pictures of people they knew and some they didn’t. Photos are such great memory aids.


  2. There is a clock at the house that has that expression on it. I love looking at old pictures. At Thanksgiving 2017, I went through all the photo albums and scrapbooks and scanned them in. It is great as I put them onto Shutterfly’s site, so I can go there and get photos for my blog or look at the photos, much more than I did when they were in albums at the bottom of a seldom-used closet. I’m glad I digitized them. At that time, I had been blogging for four years, but only had a couple of followers, then a few months after scanning in the photos, I got some followers. I have used some very old photos of me in my upcoming Wordless Wednesday post.

    1. Very appropriate for a clock. That must have taken a lot of time scanning and organizing those photos. I doubt I’ll ever do that but looking at then all with the girls was fun. Photos are great memory aids.

      1. It did take the entire four-day holiday at Thanksgiving, but not all the images are ready to use. Like the ones I used this Wednesday actually came from four very small prints on one page of the album and I had to enlarge each one and then use the snipping tool, though I used a couple of the pics before in my blog. I told myself I’d finish that project of making all the photos presentable when retired, but I am doing a few at a time now with blog posts. My mom used a Baby Brownie camera to take photos in the 50s and 60s so most of the pictures are very small. No worries … my father had a 35mm camera and always cut my head off or most of my body. ๐Ÿ™‚
