Weekly Photo Challenge: Careful

In response to The Daily Post’s writing prompt: “Careful.”

It’s I who am being careful; speaking softly and urgently; encouraging MasterB back indoors.

It Was Also a Good day

I don’t want to sound smug, but I have had more than one good day which would suit the current photo challenge “Today Was a Good Day.” And the photos to prove it.

Weekly Photo Challenge: On the Way

I laughed out loud when I saw the subject of this week’s challenge.

In response to The Daily Post’s weekly photo challenge: “On the Way.”

On the way home yesterday from Wiltshire I was on a coach looking out of the window. On a whim, I took my little Olympus and snapped the countryside as we sped along the road. These are some of the results.

These Things Shall Pass: Weekly Photo Challenge and Other Stuff

I have finally finished my notes for a job I am doing on Tuesday.

Tomorrow, I shall reread them, try to turn them into a coherent narrative. Think of me. It needs to be done, but I can feel avoidance coming on which will only mean a late late night on Monday.

But I may also manage to nip round to the allotments where they are planning a clearing up day. Not that I have an allotment, but I am guilty by association. Octavia is coming to supper. So I need to do something about the less than pritine kitchen and other surfaces, and the muddle of papers that litter every corner of the sitting room. As I typed that I thought I should ask Celia and Charlie if they are about too.

Are you reading this Celia? The menu is lentils and coriander with brown rice. Wine will be drunk. Currently I don’t have a pudding, but it’s possible a cake may be baked. Apple, most likely.

Our own garden is beautiful. In spring the world fills with colour. Stunning, wonderful, transient colour.

I walked away from my work, went out into yesterday’s sunshine and took these:

New Flowers and Shoes

There have been a couple of photo challenges recently I thought I might participate in, but suddenly it has been Friday again and a new challenge is posted.

The current challenge, New, is not one I thought I’d be contributing to. But behind the fading elegance of a rather splendid bunch of Christmas flowers, my Christmas cactus has come into timely bloom. OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA
Pretty against the copper planter, it is a bright spot on a dull weekend. Continue reading
