Karma’s October Photo Hunt: IdiomsPosted: October 29, 2011
When I first saw Karma’s Photo Hunt theme for October, I thought, “oh, fun!” I love words, and enjoy playing with them. I was ready to jump on the bandwagon and join in the fun. But as the month grew older, I grew no wiser as to what I was going to do with the theme of idioms. With so much to pick from, I was drawing a blank.
All of the ideas I had earlier in the month flew right out of my head. Then M the Younger came over for a weekend visit with a big bag of apples and a recipe for apple pie that he volunteered to make. For me, the project just became as easy as…
I never quite understood what was easy about pie. I find them difficult to make. They are, however, easy to eat. And this particular apple pie was effortless for me since I didn’t have to make it.
While waiting for the pie to bake, I noticed Izzy playing in the dining room.
I’m sure you know where I’m going with this…
Thanks, Karma. That was fun, as always. I’m looking forward to whatever you come up with for the next photo hunt.
It started out rainy here today, but then the sun came along and shooed away the clouds, giving us an almost picture-perfect day. M the Elder and M the Younger are outside getting things ready for the winter to come.
The boats have been put away and the swim platform has been hauled to shore. When you see them again in my daily pond shots, you will know that winter is over here in the Bogs. In the meantime, we’re getting ready for ice skating on the pond, sledding down the hillside, and cross-country skiing. We are officially finished with warm weather activities on and in the pond.
We’re thinking of going to a soccer match in Akron tonight. Regular readers might recall that M and I are big fans of the Akron Zips men’s soccer team. They are doing well again this year and we haven’t had the time or opportunity to go and watch them play. It’s going to be cold tonight, with a chance of freezing rain or snow. We will have dig out the winter gear if we do decide to go.
That’s it from the Bogs for today. Thank you for dropping by and joining me in a little fun with idioms. You still have a few days left if you’d like to participate with your own photos. Go ahead. You know you want to. 🙂
