One for Two Memes


I’m working the night shift this week, y’all. And let me tell ya, it ain’t easy. Besides being bone-tired, sleep deprived, and confused – my feet hurt, my head hurts and I don’t have time to take care of my awful looking chipped nails. Bleh! I had to sleep all day on Mother’s Day, and barely managed to get up in time to see a few of my kids. I had one eye open and was slurping down a cup of coffee.

So I’m gonna be kinda lazy and post one picture for two of my favorite memes.

This is a macro shot of fiber optic grass and a couple of fresh tomatoes. The grass really caught my eye, when I was shopping for some small containers of plants to give as favors at the eco-friendly baby shower that I threw for my first grandchild.  Since my husband and I both work at Corning, and we make fiber optic glass, I just love this plant! And the tomatoes spoke to me and said, “Include us in the picture! We’d be perfect for Ruby Tuesday!”

SO, this picture is for Macro Monday AND Ruby Tuesday.

Macro Monday

For Macro Monday, you take a close up picture that you think is blog-worthy, post it, and link back to Macro Monday so everyone can visit everyone! (That’s southeren-eese for leave each other comments, if you know what’s good for ya.)

For  Ruby Tuesday , on Tuesday you post one of your own  photos that contains something red. It can be a whole lotta red, or a little bit of red. I liked the eclectic collection of pictures I saw over at  Work of the Poet, so I decided to play.

And if y’all enjoy lookin’ at my pictures, visit my other blog. It’s called Wilmington Daily Photo. I’m posting a photo a day over there; glimpses of my scenic home town.

A Thousand Words Thursday # 7


Yesterday’s  theme, for Wordless Wednesday, French Lique Version, was “Mothers”. Yesterday I posted an old photo of my mom and myself. When I was 2 months old, to be exact, getting a bath. It was real vintage, y’all, considerin’ that it was taken way back in 1958!

Today, I am posting a photo of another baby. Doesn’t it look like the same baby? Well, it’s not. This photo was taken 20 years later. It is me, again, this time holding my firstborn son, Kyle. I think the family resemblance is clear.

I’m all into babies these days, because I’m about to become a grandma. My first grandchild, my middle son’s, is due any day now and I just found out four days ago that my oldest son, Kyle (pictured above) is going to give me another one in January.

So in honor of that, I figured I’d  embarrass thrill Kyle by posting a baby photo of him. You know how grown sons love stuff like that, right y’all? Anyway, this photo takes me back in time, and makes me remember what it was like to hold my first child. And that has to be worth a thousand words.

The idea behind this one is to post a picture that is worth a thousand words.Be sure and click on the link above, and add your photo to the list. Then have fun visiting all the other blogs and viewing what they think is worth a thousand words!
