Sunday Selections # 517
Long, long ago, in days of yore...Kim of Frog ponds Rock, (who no longer blogs), dreamed up a meme called Sunday Selections.
A place where those who were willing could put up photos they wanted to share, new, old, good, bad or indifferent, any photos you please.
Nothing rude or vulgar though.
The meme is now continued by Elephant's Child and I occasionally join in as do a few others. Drop in to Elephant's Child and have a look.
In the back porch again:
the caravan park beach scene is coming along
a frog has booked a beach holiday and seems to be enjoying it
backed up against the cliff face is a Tiki Hut with a tiny gnome in a swinging chair which needs adjusting, he looks like he is about to fall out of it
off to the right is another Tiki Hut setting, this one could be a restaurant I believe
and up on the cliff above them, another, much smaller, miniature Tiki Hut
the caravan park now has "grass" and there is a boardwalk (cardboard packaging) between the caravan park and the Tiki Huts leading onto the beach.
I heard the wonderful singing of a magpie as I ate breakfast one day last week, so looked out to see a young magpie getting her own breakfast.
of course I ran to get the camera, look how deep her beak is buried, looking for grubs
here she is running across the grass, you can see her body is quite small, a fully grown Maggie is much fuller in size, also the grey on the wings indicates a youngster. Adult magpies have white wings.
digging up another tidbit
A code cracker puzzle! I love these.
Can I help? I think the number 4s are all "e"
looky looky! I got a package in the mail, from Barbie. You all know Barbie don't you? Tall, elegant, a wardrobe for every possible occasion.
She sent me a new backpack for school
I'll have to walk around a bit and get used to carrying it before school starts.
also in the package was a bottle of water, must keep hydrated in this summer heat, a giant lollipop and a pair of shoes. Those won't fit, Barbie's feet are way smaller than mine.
I also received a parcel in the mail
what do you think this is?
it's a hand made footstool! And I am very happy with it.
I ordered it to replace this white plastic one which looks out of place here
this is so much better, the white one can go back into the bathroom now.
I need a small stool here to be able to more easily reach the upper reaches of the dvd shelves.
