{pretty, happy, funny, real}


First the pretty:
Redheaded Snippet's self-portrait.

These sit on the windowsill behind the kitchen sink. Redheaded Snippet made them for me during two different weeks of Summer Camp, one when she was rather young, the other much more recently. She made them to match the colors in the kitchen and was apologetic when she gave me the bigger (and older) one because she couldn't manage a strawberry and had to go with an apple instead, the dear. They make me happy whenever I stand at the kitchen sink (and that is a LOT)!

Funny (oh I've got a good one this time):
This was my view from the toilet in the ladies' room of a church last night. Not our church, but one at which we attended a funeral (more on that later, if I can get to it). I burst out laughing as soon as I closed the door and just HAD to get a photo of it. Have YOU ever used a camera in a bathroom stall before? No, don't answer that...

And the real:
Fell Beast! This is what I found first thing in the morning a few days ago. I know this event is supposed to be about finding contentment in our everyday lives and I'm trying to find contentment in this particular situation somehow but I'm having a hard time. But it's very real, no? Maybe this: I am content with the fact that I live in a time and place that allows me to live so comfortably that we keep an animal as a pet? Yeah, I'll keep telling myself that...

You have a lovely blog - your comment about the dog ("fell beast") put me in mind of Shakespeare.
