Welcome back to Sunday Selections.
Begun way back in the mist of time by Kim of Frog Ponds Rock and now continued by me, with a drastic relaxation of rules.
Originally meant for showcasing old photos lost on your files, never seeing the light of day, the meme has morphed into photos of your choice, new or old, good or not-so-good, anything you please, but nothing rude please.
If you are participating, please leave me a comment so I can buzz along and have a look.
Elephant's Child always participates, and her pictures are always worth seeing.
I usually have a theme for the week but now I'm thinking a random approach might be a better idea, so today is the last day this sentence will appear. Sometimes my photos might follow a theme, sometimes not.
let's start the day with breakfast:
one blender, a cup of vanilla yoghurt, a tub of strawberries, a half cup of milk
add a straw and drink your strawberry smoothie breakfast 😀
before Christmas I bought plenty of apricots, also as breakfast food, usually chopped and stirred into my yoghurt. I let the seeds dry for about a week, then soaked them in water:
after a couple of days, the water had turned yellow. I've never seen this happen before.
a few days later, four of the seeds had absorbed enough water to grow heavy and sink. When the remaining seeds also sank, I took them outside and planted them in the same area as last time where only one seed (ONE!) out of 27 had sprouted and is now a tiny tree ten inches high. I'm hoping these new plantings will do better, they're certainly fresher.
Here's something not commonly seen around here over the Christmas baking period:
an empty, clean sink. Woo-Hoo!
"Who stole the cookie from the cookie jar?"
yes, I talk to myself sometimes (*~*)
You stole the cookie from the cookie jar?
yes, I did.
Was it delicious?
yes it was.
Well alright then,
add biscuits to the blackboard shopping list.
This is a stick-on, peel-off, vinyl "blackboard". I suspect it might not stay straight enough to re-stick properly if I ever peel it off, so it's there for the life of the fridge.
a much more common sight around here:
a sleeping Angel
look at that adorable face
a quick stretch of the paws
and settle down again. I soon followed him into napland.
See you next week!
