This week has been a jumbled up mess with the MLK holiday. Don’t get me wrong, I loved having the long weekend with DH, but at the same time it threw my schedule off. *sigh* Oh well…today I will jump through hoops to join a few of my daily memes into one jammed pack post.
Let’s jolt awake this morning, so grab a cup…here’s the morning joe…and did you bring the jelly donuts? You didn’t! Oh well, we’ll have to rough this Thursday Thoughts’ chat!
For my Tuesday Talk Time session…a long time coming opportunity made itself available. I I have wanted to capture raindrops on anything. After last week’s heavy thunderstorms a small prickly bush provided the perfect chance for me to seize such a shot with my iPhone.
The camera in my iPhone5s is kinda impressive, is it not? Just look at the detail of each raindrop! I am all smiles now and can’t wait to get other similar shots. Interestingly, after I snapped the first picture I spotted this…
It was odd to find this splash of color near the prickly bush on the edge of our driveway. I guess one of the kids in the neighborhood went wild, shooting the ball out of control landing it precisely in this spot for me to find. There it laid, lost, and ready for me to photograph.
The next several days forecast is calling for cold weather. I thought it would be great to make a kettle of soup, to knock the winter chill off. I took the best ideas from two recipes and came up with my version.
Like I said in the beginning, my schedule is off. Since, I did not get to hook up with my fellow blogger buds on Tuesday, then why not follow me to Les’s place at Time Out For Mom for Tuesday Coffee Chat. Hey, we need a java chat break every day of the week, don’t you think? Yeah, even if there are no jelly donuts.
This week’s prompt is to complete the following…
I think I’m a hermit sometimes. My knowledge of what is in and what is out doesn’t apply. But, one thing I would love to see disappear forever is the dirty hair look. I know this isn’t what most people are striving for but every time I see someone who uses a hair straightening iron then their hair appears stringy and filthy. How can anyone think that looks good? This is a style many women of all ages sport and even some men. There are a few local anchor hosts wearing their hair like this and I am like, “Hello, hasn’t anyone told you that looks awful?”
There are a few other things I would love to see disappear this year. I wouldn’t call them trends, though. One is profanity. Cursing seems to be a second language and I truly feel that it degrades the person’s image. I hate to hear swear words every other word in someone’s dialogue. The worse offender of all, in my opinion, is the F-word. I would love to see it removed from people’s vocabulary.
- What is your favorite cup of java? (regular, latte, cappuccino, espresso, or whatever)
- Do you like jelly donuts? If so, what kind and are they coated with sugar-glazed or powdered sugar?
