July Writing Prompts, Day 14 – Writing weirdos

From Putting My Feet in the Dirt (https://puttingmyfeetinthedirt.com/), July’s prompts are here: https://puttingmyfeetinthedirt.com/2019/07/01/july-2019-writing-prompts/

And today, July 14, the prompt is “Writing weirdos”

Writing weirdos…weird is one of those words where i is not before e except after c.  Stupid rule.  And let’s be clear, it’s not a rule of English, but a rule of English Spelling!  And there are really good reasons for a lot of what we think of as weird spelling in English, what with the Great Vowel Shift and all (not to be confused with the great bowel shift…too much information?)

And now, to end this post, here is the parking lot we were in at Butchart Gardens – so at the end of the day, we could say we had to return to Camel-Lot…

July Photo a Day Challenge, Day 13: Flowers

Since I am now on holidays, and will be for the entire month of July, it is only fitting I am challenging myself to a series of daily posts – writing and photography.  So, in addition to RDP and Fandango, here is one from City Sonnet – a July Photo a Day Challenge (https://citysonnet.wordpress.com/2019/07/01/july-photo-a-day-challenge-2/)!

And for this one, I am challenging myself to use a photo taken on the day of the prompt – and all of them will be in black and white!

Today’s prompt is: Flowers

This is hard…I NEVER take pictures of flowers 🙂

July Writing Prompts, Day 13 – Dismantled and disguised

From Putting My Feet in the Dirt (https://puttingmyfeetinthedirt.com/), July’s prompts are here: https://puttingmyfeetinthedirt.com/2019/07/01/july-2019-writing-prompts/

And today, July 13, the prompt is “Dismantled and disguised”

I am suddenly wondering how something could be dismantled and disguised at the same time.  I mean, I guess being dismantled could be a kind of disguise.  Kind of like a puzzle.  Guess the thing that is lying dismantled on your floor.  The next step?  Putting it together again.  Reminds me of the Star Trek episode, The Menagerie, where the aliens re-mantled the human woman, but had no guidebook and really f$%^ed it up.  Guess they didn’t have YouTube!

Daisy madness in the garden!

Caturday – need I say more?

Yes, it’s Caturday again, although as we all know, every day is Caturday.  Or National Kitten Day, which was apparently yesterday according to friend Jill (https://jilldennison.com/2019/07/13/saturday-surprise-a-hodgepodge/).  And these guys would concur!

July Writing Prompts, Day 12 – Budding beauties

From Putting My Feet in the Dirt (https://puttingmyfeetinthedirt.com/), July’s prompts are here: https://puttingmyfeetinthedirt.com/2019/07/01/july-2019-writing-prompts/

And today, July 12, the prompt is “Budding beauties”

When I first read this prompt, I thought it said “budding buddies”, and I thought, hey!  I can talk about beginning friendships, or flowers that bud at the same time.  But then, I realized it said “beauties”, and I was stumped.
