Busy Week, but Still in the Pink

Boy this week has been busy and next week…I don’t want to think about it. What happened to slowing down when you retire??? But at least I am doing things that are fun, guess that is the trade off.

This week’s prompt from Nancy Merrill is Shades of Pink, and finally my Lantana is starting to bloom. They need summer warmth and it was slow coming this year. Also with Cee’s Flower of the Day, I can hit two wonderful challenges at the same time.

I do enjoy all of you who gives us fun challenges with a camera – my goal is a real camera soon. The phone does okay but I really miss good shots of my birds.

As we enjoy being in the Pink, remember to always reflect the kindness you feel, so they can be in the pink as well.

City Sonnet with the July Challenge of Colors and Letters has for today the Letter “F”. So you have a quirky makeshift Fun poem to make you smile.

Try to take life a little less serious so that fun can seep in and make you smile. Share that smile with others and be kind.

Letters and Number Challenge

Since it is lunch time and I am in the kitchen, its the perfect place for letters and numbers. Our kitchens are not always for food but are also our hub of organization and a center for family, at least in my kitchen. Stuff is stuck all over the fridge.

Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge this week is Letters and Numbers so enjoy my humor as I eat lunch.

 

As you have fun throughout your day remember not everyone is having fun. Share a smile and be kind. It may just brighten their day.

July’s Colors and Letters, Citysonnet

Photo A Day Challenge from Citysonnet looks to be fun during the month of July. Well, a lot of the challenges do but looking over the list, these I can do without having to go far with my camera. Since my month has the potential to be out of control, this one may be an easy one for me to do.

July 1 is FAVORITE COLOR – that is easy – purple.

Purple is Skeeter’s favorite color as well.

Right down to her purple polka dotted shoes.

And as always, I remind myself and all others the power of being kind. It has lasting power you may not visibly see but the brightness of it shines forever.

Escapist Coloring Club,July 1

It is so much fun to see the creative colors and images we come up with for Linda Hill’s monthly Escapist Coloring club. I enjoy it’s fun but also I remind myself on those night when I can not sleep that I am working on a project for the Escapist Color Club prompt.

This month I have colored the delicate flowering hippo, a new breed for the tropical zones.

She wears green eye-shadow to accentuate her lovely blue eyes. No self respecting male hippo would ever wear green eye-shadow.

Come join in on the fun and color with us.

As I was researching new ideas for showing kindness I found an entire website of pages to color that represent kindness. I just typed in “pictures of kind and coloring”.

I will have to print this and color it for next month

So remember to always be kind.

Do Spiders Fly???, Fun Challenges

The antics of spiders in web-making is amazing to me…as long as they stay outside. Jansen Photo’s challenge today is Radiant. I was not sure if I could play with this challenge but the picture I took of the web I thought was neat showing the sun radiating across it and the light fracturing as it hit the window and camera lens.

I so enjoy sitting on my couch writing where I can watch the antics of the birds a they come to feed on my three feeders. Today they became part of Cee’s photo challenge of  3. Three feeders and three birds feeding if not more.

Or how about the beauty of my miniature orchid with it 3 flowers on one stem.

The fun we have sharing our enjoyment of photography and blogging with each other can be so inspiring. Thanks to all who share what they love.

And as we share the fun, remember to share in the kindness of the fun. Kindness brings smiles and makes the fun last.
