Welcome to Treasure Tuesday! This is the first in a series as conceived by Greenthumb and interpreted by me.
I think her protocol is for participants to take all their pictures to her prompts and publish them in a single post, but I’m going to break mine down in bite-sized portions.
Here, then, is my first stab at things:
B is for ?: Two Saturdays ago, Aly went up a Girl Scout rank from Brownie to Junior. It was a very ceremonial yet mellow affair held in the troop leader’s backyard. Have I mentioned already that I LOVE Aly’s troop leader? She’s so low maintenance and easy-going but thorough and organized at the same time – my kind of person and my kind of mom. Her husband is just as cool. In fact, he built the bridge Aly is standing on and it came out wonderfully. That’s what it’s officially called, by the way. When you go up a level. Bridging. So B is for Bridging from Brownie. Perfect, yes?
Spoon: Before they opened up a Yogurtland a mile’s bike ride away from my house last summer, my kids and I would drive twenty miles one way to the then closest location and splurge on decadent goodness. The yogurt was already yummy, but then the franchise went one step further and started offering weekly vanity spoons to get repeat customers. Curse them and their genius. Needless to say, my kitchen has a plethora of Sanrio spoons – multiples of all 4 kinds – to prove our undying loyalty. This was a no-brainer picture for this prompt because Sanrio is just all kinds of cute.
Man made: DOCTOR WHO TARDIS WATCH. Just…yes. Happy birthday to me!
Habitat: I though this was gonna be a toughie. But the same weekend we had bridging was also the first weekend I ever ventured into our troop leader’s backyard. Usually, Girl Scouts is just a drop-off/pick up situation at the front door. So how pleasantly surprised was I to find this darling turtle just noshing away at lunch? Apparently, he’s a free-range turtle so the entire backyard is his habitat, but I caught him perfectly entwined and content amidst loops of color matching garden hose and I couldn’t resist the photo op.
