Cee’s Black & White Photo Challenge: Words ending with “ock”

When I first saw this as an upcoming topic, my mind went blank…..something that happens way too often these days! But once I thought of one word ending with “ock” the words just kept coming to mind. Here are my three favorite photos for Cee’s Black & White Photo Challenge: Words ending with ock

Cee’s Black & White Photo Challenge: Close up

As I sit here dusting off my blog and preparing to get things moving again here, I’m keeping it simple for Cee’s Black & White Photo Challenge: Close ups.

It might not be the closest of ups and it might just look like a sad little dandelion resting in a Winnie the Pooh glass but to me it means everything. Little B is the happiest camper now that spring/summer has finally arrived. He wants to spend every waking minute outside playing. There aren’t enough hours in each day to fill the adventures and projects this little guy wants to complete. And it’s because I know this and at the exact minute when he came inside the house clutching one slightly bedraggled dandelion in his fist and presented it to me, that will treasure it forever. He’s three. He doesn’t know about Dandelion Fuzz. He only knows that this pretty yellow flower caught his eye and he wanted brighten someones day and share it with someone he loves. And he did.

Hope your day is filled with sunshine!

Cee’s Black & White Photo Challenge: Structure

After an unexpected absence, I’m making a second attempt to return to my blog. Five weeks ago, I felt perfectly fine. Okay, maybe a little tired, but otherwise healthy and good. 24 hours later, while on the phone with my friend, I began coughing. Right before the first cough- that was the last time I felt good. I had a few false starts over the past month but I finally feel like I’m turning a corner and on the road to recovery- yay!

There’s so much I have to say. (I’ve written some amazing posts in my head…) I’m hoping to get it all written but until then, I’m starting off slowly, yet again. I can’t think of a better place to begin than Cee’s Black & White Photo Challenge: Structure.

Cee’s Black & White Photo Challenge: Abandoned or Alone

Nothing says ‘abandoned’ like a toy that was left behind. And it’s those toys, some of Toy Story fame, which are featured in my entries for Cee’s Black & White Photo Challenge: Abandoned or Alone. 

As is often the case, I had completely different photos set aside for this challenge when I happened to walk into the family room after Beej left with his dad. There were Buzz and Woody, laying there abandoned by the little boy who had just been giggling when he accidentally pushed one of Buzz’s buttons.

This caused me to stop and look around at all the other toys that were looking just as sad, waiting for their person to come back and play with them.

All I had to do was to look down when I glanced out the back window to find a teddy bear and friend, peaking out at me. Why he’s hiding there with a storm trooper (or is that a clone trooper— oh shoot, I know this!!!), I really don’t know…

Putting laundry away, a quick check in Beej’s bed found Knuffle Bunny, the most abandoned toy in our house due to the number of times he has been loved, wrestled with, posed, and yes, abandoned in his short time in our family.

A quick pop into Kris’s room found this lion, laying on a shelf with other discarded items.

And finally, I came across another Woody, this one long abandoned by Andy, who tossed him in his closet when he went to college (yeah, the irony of that is not lost on me!).
