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, but EC is currently taking a break, so it's just me and anyone else who chooses to join in.
Let's begin with a very laid-back cat:
can't get more relaxed than this,
Angel is one cool cat 😎
this is the busiest corner of my kitchen, it has the largest available counter space. Being quite deep, it takes a bit of stretch to reach the power point way over on the wall behind the microwave. It's a double outlet, with one being always in use, the kettle is permanently plugged in. The other one does double and triple duty with me having to reach all the way over to unplug the microwave to plug in the toaster, or to plug in something else, like my hand mixer or blender.
AND, it's the only available power outlet, since the other one is on the opposite wall behind the fridge.
I noticed some interesting reflections on the jars I have above the sink area
this tall skinny glass used to have a glass fish in it,
but I moved him into this wider jar.
here he is, just hangin'
the first jar holds a honeysuckle cutting which I gathered last year and it hasn't died yet, although I noticed this morning the lower leaves are yellowing. Time to plant it out and see what happens. Honeysuckle is my favourite scented climber.
Here are all three jars together, with the black pebbles I added for a dramatic effect. Too many in one, not enough in another, I'll get that sorted one day.
this is my "juju" bag, given to me long ago by a friend, it's supposed to ward off evil and not let any bad into the house. I don't remember what herbs are in there, but it seems to be very effective.
this is the picture I see on my screen when I first open my computer. Great picture, right? There used to be a different one, with a starry night sky that I liked a lot too, and took a photo of, but I can't find that image.
Let's finish with three sunsets, the first two sent from my brother's phone, the final fiery fantabulousness sent from 'no-one's' phone:
taken from his balcony
also from his balcony, a little earlier than the other one I think
this one taken from 'no-one's' front porch.
I'd be very pleased if some of you readers decide to join me in Sunday Selections, just leave me a comment so I know to pop over and see your photos.
