Daily Prompt: A Mystery Girl

Standard

Tell us something most people probably don’t know about you.

Photographers, artists, poets: show us MYSTERIOUS.

I’ve had a keen interest in Egyptology since I was a little kid,  maybe it comes from watching one too many Abbott and Costello movies, lol. I loved the idea of treasure hunting and uncovering lost civilizations.

I’m also a big fan of Vincent Price. Many of his films were so cheesy, but we still love them. And yes, I loved watching them when I was a kid, obviously I had a varied childhood. 🙂

What’s not to love, Kermit the frog and the master of horror. The day Kermit lost his dad was the saddest day ever.

I love to garden, even though I can’t grow house plants worth a crap, lol.

Dead is dead, what can I say.

There we go, just a sample of the mystery girl!

Daily Prompt: Great or Greatest?

Standard

What makes a blog great? What makes you follow a blog or “Like” a post?

Photographers, artists, poets: show us GREATNESS.

I would say there has to be something that sparks my interest in the first three seconds. Is that being an impatient jerk? I’ve run across so many that I like, and those I keep reading over and over again. The blogging experience has been a mind opener for me, and I am richer for it.

I like blogs that talk about mother nature, or photos of her greatness. Travel blogs are also fun to go through. When they are well done they make me feel like I am riding along. Blogs that go beyond “skin deep” are intriguing, something completely random always gets my attention.

Reading about life on the farm, or recipes to go with it will always grab my attention, it’s in my blood and I love it!

Cats, what can I say. The world would be a much sadder placer without them. 🙂

Daily Prompt: The Natural World

Standard

Describe your first memorable experience exploring and spending time in nature. Were you in awe? Or were you not impressed? Would you rather spend time in the forest or the city?

Photographers, artists, and poets: show us NATURE.

I would defiantly spend time in nature. As a matter of fact, if we lived in the country, ( we will some day ), I’d be hard pressed to go anywhere.

I was raised on a farm, the best place in the world for a kid to grow up. There were always places to explore, flowers to pick, trouble to get into. Yes, believe it or not, I was a little rascal from the start.

I can remember a forest of fir trees on our property. There was a small gravel road we used to walk down with trees on either side. It was heaven, for me as a little kid. We used to have wiener  roasts on the road, mum would spread out a blanket and we’d enjoy just being outside among the trees and birds.

That’s me in the blue, with my hotdog roasted black, like my dad liked it.

When I was about five or six we moved to another farm. To this day I still remember walking through the pasture land and this is what I saw.

A sea of yellow, it was breath-taking, and I’ve always wanted to go back.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Companionable

Standard

This is an easy one for me, I am blessed to have the most amazing man in the world, with Molly and Beanie adoring me, so really, it doesn’t get any better than this.

I have two other companions who are with me always, they sit on the small shelf above my head.

My dad is in the small brass urn and my buddy of eighteen years, Simon the cat in the larger one. As a family we choose to keep a small bit of dad with us, my mom has one, and all of us kids.

I am indeed, a lucky girl.

Daily Prompt: We Can Be Taught! Really?

Standard

Tell us a moment or an incident that you treasure  – not necessarily because it brought you happiness, but because it taught you something about yourself.

Photographers, artists, poets: show us LEARNING.

Well I have to say the first moment that comes to mind is one from last night, and it is one that brought me happiness.

My husband and I have this inside joke about how both of us are terrible dancers. If we went to a night club people would be lining up to watch the comedians, and forget why they came in the first place. We’re rather uncoordinated, it’s not like we woke up yesterday and said, ” hey, I thought I used to know this”, lol…..no, no…. we’re bad and we know it.

Last night we were in the middle of a hug ,and it turned into us trying to dance, yet again. We were jiving in the kitchen, laughing hysterically because the first thing we did was step on each others feet, lol.

Grabbing a special moment doesn’t have to be planned, the best ones are spontaneous and full of good intention, sometimes making you laugh so hard your sides hurt. We vowed to keep dancing, but next time include Molly our little Westie. She stood looking at us like she didn’t know who we were, and Beanie the cat had a screwed up look on his face.

This is just so cute I had to pass it on.

Be yourself and have fun, and just remember, if the dog and cat laugh it doesn’t mean they don’t love you.

Daily Prompt: Might As Well Jump And Be Happy

Standard

What’s the biggest risk you’d like to take — but haven’t been able to? What would have to happen to make you comfortable taking it?

There are risks I should be taking and then there are the ones I’d like to take, they seem the most fun, so I’m happy to follow the rules today. :0)

Life is way too serious for many of us, looking at the big picture can give the best of us a headache, and make us wish we would take more time to ponder the small, less valuable moments in life.

For days now I have been thinking about eating an entire tub of ice-cream. Sitting down with a good movie, eating the cold, tasty delight right out of the tub.

ice-cream1

The only reason I haven’t done it is because if I do,I will get brain freeze of monumental proportion and all the sugar will make me feel like passing out, and then of course when I wake up I’ll feel incredibly guilty about doing it…and that would spoil the experience.

Ah, to be human, what a pain in the ass some days.

Daily Prompt: Never Be Too Serious

Standard

Tell us about a thing you’ll never write about.

Hmm… I would never write about my greatest fear……that would just be asking the Gods to rain down on me. 🙂

As far as photos go, this is the silliest thing I could come up with, I don’t feel like being serious today. I snapped this shot one morning while walking Molly.
