Back by popular demand (or by the request of two people), I give you Treasure Tuesday’s Photo Scavenger Hunt. If you recall, this is a series conceived by Greenthumb, and I’d interpreted it differently during my Summer Edition posts. I’ve decided to follow her protocol for the regular year, giving you all 12 photos in one post.
Please enjoy the lovely pictures while I recuperate from a rather harrowing first week of school. And that’s a story for another day.
Peace, W is for?, Ball – I’d toyed with doing this feature as-is from summer so here was the post that addressed the first three challenges.
Luggage – I thought this was going to be the most problematic one since I hardly ever travel, but then the hubs surprised me with a spontaneous, impromptu trip to Vegas for our anniversary et voilà! (We stayed at the Golden Nugget’s Gold Club suite; I want my bedroom at home to be exactly like this!)
Sunglasses – On the way to Vegas, I found the perfect opportunity for an arty sunnies shot. I tried different filters but ended up choosing this photo in its undiluted glory.
5pm – The Grotto at the Nugget is our fave eatery in Vegas. Excellent service, excellent ambiance and just an elevator ride down from our room so free license to imbibe. And it was blessedly free of people at 5pm for our anniversary dinner so we got even better, more personal service.
Glitter – View from our hotel room. (Please pardon the ghostly reflection). We were confounded by that building across the way, glitter lights notwithstanding, for the interim of our stay, and it wasn’t until we got back and I spoke with a colleague who’s a Vegas veteran that I found out The D is the old Fitzgerald’s casino revamped.
Everyday – Okay, enough with the Vegas photos. This is my everyday. My two bed hogs. Like master, like dog. Sigh. They’re just lucky I’m an edge sleeper and we bought a king-sized bed.
Under – Did you really think you were going to escape a Scavenger Hunt post without an Aly photo?
On your shelf – My school shelf, that is. That’s where I now keep my extensive manga collection since the hubs is slowly taking away my storage at home. There are benefits to this verdammt new building after all.
Something you do everyday – Breakfast on the go? Absolutely, now that I’m back at work. This is a recipe a colleague shared with me. It’s amazingly yummy and packed with loads of nutrients and goodness. Now, I make huge batches over the weekend, enough to fill 6 Mason jars which I then freeze and take out the night before for a portable meal the following day.
Centered – I shall have to remember this quote during the rest of my 176 days of school. I think I’m gonna need it to keep my sanity.
Sorry for the dearth of pithy commentary. I write this on a Friday after the aforementioned harrowing first week of school. I promise to be more engaging next time. While we wait for my equilibrium to find itself, anyone wanna take a stab at renaming this feature since it probably won’t always fall on a Tuesday regularly? Please and thank you…
