Definitely not an (Almost) Wordless Wednesday
#22 – Your Shoes
Yes, I am wearing hiking boots with sweatpants — in public. This is not a fancy town. I’m not helping to raise the fashion bar but then I’m not slipping and sliding in the parking lot, either.
#23 – Something Old
This plate was a wedding gift from a dear old friend (her own mother lived to 102). The plate was hand-painted in Japan. There’s so much more to tell but it really deserves a post of its own someday.
#24 – Guilty Pleasure
Really? Does it have to be about guilt? I suppose I could post a picture of a chocolate bar, but I’m trying to see a small piece of dark chocolate as a healthy part of the day – something that keeps me from thinking there is no pleasure in a life-change eating plan.
Or perhaps I should have photographed a LaVyrle Spencer romance novel, but since she is now retired there are no longer new books of hers being published. I feel that loss most when I go to the library without my wish-list of books that I’d like to read.
So I guess I am left with 4bucks. I don’t like giving money to them. I can make a perfectly good cup of coffee at home – and I usually do – but once in a while, it is a treat to stop in and purchase a latte. I’d probably be a devoted sucker if they offered pumpkin lattes year-round.
#25 – Something you made
Let’s see… I’ve made my bed… but you’ve already seen a picture of that…
I am going to resist the rather sick urge to show you the lovely spots I’ve made, compliments of a formerly dormant varicella virus. Apparently I have Shingles – although a brain tumor might have explained how I managed leaving out a title for that post. No, I didn’t leave the diagnosing to the interwebs; I actually took myself to the urgent care clinic yesterday. The pain was turning me into a Pain, so my husband muttered about a grizzly bear with a toothache and sent me out the door.
By the time I got home again, I wasn’t about to make anything just so I could photograph it. The only idea remaining was a mess — after all, I do seem to make a lot of them.. Perhaps I should photograph a mess? There are quite a few to choose from but they aren’t very nice to look at…
It was at this point that I looked around the room and noticed that no one had put away the puzzle I recently completed. Voilà!
Okay, so it’s not a rum cake or a quilt, but it was challenging and I did put it together… plus it looks nicer than the mess I could have shown you.
