Pull Up a Seat Challenge – 2019 Week 12

Welcome to XingfulMama’s Pull Up a Seat Challenge (https://xingfumama.blog/pull-up-a-seat/).

“As I get older I find myself more and more often looking for a place to perch when I am out and about. This might be a chair, a bench, a wall, a pew…maybe even a log or a rock. These spots can be artfully designed, quirky or very plain, sometimes they have a view, sometimes you meet someone else who needs a rest.”  (https://xingfumama.blog/2019/03/22/pull-up-a-seat-photo-challenge-2019-week-12/)

I’m not sure this is a seat I would be willing to pull up…

Blogging from A to Z Challenge: 2019 Theme Reveal!

Welcome to the Great and Powerful Blogging from A to Z 2019 Theme Reveal!

For those of you who aren’t aware of the Blogging from A to Z Challenge, you can read more about it here:  http://www.a-to-zchallenge.com/

This is the 10th anniversary of the challenge, and I’ve been a participant since 2014.  Every year I choose a theme, and every year I blog it on the fly.  Will this year be any different?  Probably not, but I can dream!  Oh, who am I kidding.  It’s a definite fly by the seat of my pants theme this year!!

Before I reveal my 2019 theme, here are themes from challenges past:

  • 2014:  I blogged about our house, and the befores and afters of the renos we did and changes we made after buying it.
  • 2015: I blogged about interesting places in Victoria (all close to home).
  • 2016: I blogged about learning to use my DSLR
  • 2017: I blogged about my ‘hood in Welcome to James Bay!
  • 2018: I blogged about the wonderful world of wabi-sabi in photographs.

And now, my Blogging from A to Z Challenge 2019 Theme!  Drum roll please…..

A picture-story a day.

“What??” you say?  Well, I have been wanting to write more, and there is nothing I like more than telling stories about pictures I take, although so far it’s usually just to myself.  So you, dear followers, will get to come with me on a journey of me taking pictures every day (which I do anyway), posting one and telling a story about it – all fitting the letter of the day.  Random?  Yes indeedy!  Fun?  For me, definitely 🙂

So, I’ll see you in just over a week with my letter A post.  Who knows what will happen this April?!?

RagTag Daily Prompt: Abandon

A response in starting over with a new daily avoidance (or non-avoidance, as the case may be), here with the Ragtag Daily Prompt (https://ragtagcommunity.wordpress.com/2019/03/20/rdp-wednesday-abandon/), today is Abandon.

I like things that are (or look) abandoned.

Share Your World – March 18, 2019

And now for this week’s Share Your World (https://sparksfromacombustiblemind.com/2019/03/18/share-your-world-3-18-19/).

Do You Have Any Guilty Pleasures?

Yes…yes I do.

What Is The Worst Pick Up Line You Ever Heard?

Can you pick up my dry-cleaning on the way home?

What Slang Or Trend Makes You Feel Old?

Anything that’s trendy today makes me feel old…

What Do You Consider The Most Over-rated Song?

Anything by Barbra Streisand (sorry Jill.)

Instead of a Tender Mercies question, here’s a philosophical one instead:

You Find A Book And Begin To Read Only To Discover That It Is Your Life. You Get To The Point That You Are At Now, Do You Turn The Page Knowing That You Will Not Be Able To Change The Events To Come?

Considering I’m the kind of person who goes to the last page of a book to make sure I am ok with continuing on, yes – but only with a bottle of wine, a fire burning, and kitties nearby!

RagTag Daily Prompt: Bold

A response in starting over with a new daily avoidance (or non-avoidance, as the case may be), here with the Ragtag Daily Prompt (https://ragtagcommunity.wordpress.com/2019/03/18/rdp-monday-bold/), today is Bold. 

Shorts and crocs on a chilly deck – a bold choice!
