Sunday Selections # 520
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.
Last week, Andrew of highriser fame showed us his partner R's new bedside lamp and I commented that I didn't like it, nor did I like Andrew's lamp which he also showed. They are just too modern for my taste, I like more old fashioned things. My own bedside lamp is probably somewhere in between:
it's from Aldi, glass base with black shade to go with the black curtain and black framed mirror on walls that you can't see
my bedside clock which is probably 15 years old by now, it's also a radio but I never use it for listening
all the controls you need are on the top so easily accessible
and the whole thing is smaller than my hand
the other bedside has a mini chest of drawers, a carved jewellery box given by my older son as a Christmas gift one year and a tiny crystal trinket box. the gold coloured tube is an LED torch, handy if there is a blackout and I need to go out and find the big lantern.
about two-thirds of my dvd collection, up on the right hand side, second shelf down, is one pulled slightly out, that's the next-in-line to be watched. I start from A and work to Y
the back porch gnomes are happy to have a new tree for gathering around and chatting
the newest plant in the garden, a philodendron selloum
view from the top
and the information label for those who might be interested
damage done to one of my jades by a couple having a loud argument out in the driveway, one of whom must have fallen into it
the browned flowerheads of the hydrangeas have now been pruned off
late afternoon sun lighting up the agave in the front yard, getting close to dinner time now,
and Meg is ready!
Oops! the cheese took a nose-dive, but I saved the pepperoni 😁
