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.
Presenting July’s third installment:
9pm: Okay, so it was 8 minutes past deadline, but I won’t quibble if you won’t. What’s more significant in this photo is the word count on my work in progress. And this pic was taken last Monday. Imagine what I’m at today! Can I get a hoo-rah?
Lever: I felt like such a traitor but could you have said no to these faces? They wanted to try out the competing fro-yo place, Menchie’s, down the street and it was closer than Yogurtland at the time so in we went. See all those levers? Yeah, loads more flavors than Yogurtland but at 10 cents more an ounce, I think I’ll keep to the status quo.
Stem: Doesn’t this picture make my neighborhood look magical and wild and Jane Austen-esque? Goes to show how pictures can lie. This was a bush? plant? shrub? on my way home from a brisk walk to Troop Leader’s house and back for Aly’s Scout prizes (Mom sold 512 boxes this year. Go, Mom!) and sure, the stems were flicking briskly in the breeze like heather in the wilds, but it’s still suburbia and Mcmansions here in good ol’ North Fontana. Nothing romantic about it. The picture is one of my better ones, though, considering the sun was in my eyes and iPhone screens are notorious for being miserable under glare.
