One-Liner Wednesday – He was a fun guy

He was a fungi until I ate him.

Photo: Four mushrooms straight out of the package. As I washed them I realized two of them had scars that looked like happy faces.

One-Liner Wednesday – Alert Creature

There’s no creature more alert than a dog when there’s potential food to be had.

One-Liner Wednesday – No justice

I took a picture of the dead red and yellow roses that are still sitting on my kitchen table from Alex’s graduation. The sun was shining through the red “stained glass” (it’s coloured transparent plastic) window and the effect was stunning, but I cannot seem to get an unfaded copy of it from my phone to my computer! Here’s the faded version anyway. Enjoy!

Just doesn’t do the original picture justice.

One-Liner Wednesday – Now that school is done…

…the days will begin to meld once more into one.

One-Liner Wednesday – I’ve got the power

Apparently all the electricity in the world isn’t enough to power the brain inside my head enough to remember to schedule a post.

One-Liner Wednesday – One of those days

I got up this morning to start Alex’s tube feed a little late—5:15—and thought if I poured the formula in with one hand, I could save some time and turn on the machine with my free hand … only to pour the formula all over myself and the floor. Time was not saved.

Please wish me luck for the rest of the day. *sigh*

Photo: White blossoms, close enough that you could smell them. Pic from 2013, as my One Drive wouldn’t open this morning.

I can’t help taking pictures of the apple blossoms in spring.
