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.

Anniversary Sweetheart

Standard

Today is our fifth anniversary, we have been together for seven, glorious years. It took both of us awhile to find the right person, but later is better than never.

We spend a lot of time smiling at each other, and the laughing goes without saying. He is my best friend and I his, it doesn’t get any better than this.

Both of us like to be hams on occasion. He once pretended to be Elvis playing a guitar, and I just so happened to have the video camera at the ready. I love spontaneous moments like this, and laugh each time I watch it.

He is the love of my life, and I cherish every day, even when he’s not serenading me.

Daily Prompt: First Light

Standard

Remember when you wrote down the first thought you had this morning? Great. Now write a post about it.

Food is always the first thing that pops into my head, because I’m starving hungry by the time I wake up. I’m usually awake by about 4:30ish, gross I know. If I stay in bed I get a headache, so I roll out and stumble to the kitchen. Molly and Beanie are always tagging along, thinking they are first in line at the feed trough, and of course they are.

While munching on my oatmeal I’m thinking about gardening. We live in a condo so our options are a bit limited. Window space is at a premium, so I’ve been thinking outside the box and hashing over ideas. Time to scrounge through the thrift store and look for alternative plant containers.

Most of these are outside ideas, but they are worth a second look!
