Treasure Tuesday :: of slides, struts, and singles slices


Welcome to Treasure Tuesday! This is a series conceived by Greenthumb and interpreted by me.

Although her protocol is for participants to take all their pictures to her prompts and publish them in a single post, I’m going to break mine down in bite-sized portions.

Just because.

Yay, summer!

Presenting July’s second installment:


Pool: A conversation overheard at the local community pool as I watched Aly go down the monster slide…

Boy approaches Girl: Hello! I just wanted to tell you that you’ve got great hair. And your eyes are like cherries.
Girl: Thank you?
Boy waves shyly and leaves. Girl turns to her friend.
Girl: What just happened?
Friend: What. just. happened?
Girl: Call your mom now; I’m ready to go home.

Ah, youth! I’m so glad I still have a few more years before I have to worry about these things with my own kids.




C is for?: CHEESE! In more ways than one. Aly and I were running errands and we did need cheese and she does so like to cheese it for the camera and there was a plethora of cheese products just calling out to be a backdrop so I couldn’t resist. (Don’t you love how her shirt coordinates with the cheese packaging?




Your view of today: This will not be truly current since I do these posts ahead of time. “Today” is so relative in blogger time, isn’t it? This particular “today” happened last Thursday when I had to pick my mom up at the airport. I love Ontario International because 1) it’s close to my house, b) it’s an easy in and out design, and c) it’s got these great photogenic architectural struts that my husband helped build (I kid you not)!

It’s T3 time this week, folks!
This month, dress like your favorite literary villain.
Or not.
But come join the fun this Thursday and share your book-inspired fashions!

    I would have been that scared teenager too! Ahrgh, get away from me weird boy, I would have thought (now, I’d think it was sweet!)

      I think the boy was a cocky twelve and the girls were a couple years older, hence the reactions from both parties. 🙂

  2. Glo says:

    I wish you would always do Treasure Tuesday.

    • mtsedwards says:

      Oh, wow! I was thinking of the exact same thing! It sure would save me from having to do an extra photo session when school starts. But I’d hate to give up TARDIS Tuesdays. ;p

  7. Aww, that poor boy was being so sweet! Can you imagine how long it took him to get up the nerve to talk to her?

    • mtsedwards says:

      True. I know Dyl would never even have dared. But as I mentioned to Anne, I do think it was a dare. Regardless, he was very bold. Kudos to him!

  8. Anne the SpyGirl says:

    Hahahaha. “Eyes like cherries”. Ah, youth.

    • mtsedwards says:

      He was this awkward 12-year-old and the girls looked to be freshmen in high school. At least they were outwardly kind to him. He ended up passing by a couple more times and waving cheekily. I think it was a dare.

Tell me all about it! I'm listening...
