Tuesdays of Texture | Week 30 of 2016

Tuesdays of Texture is a super cool weekly feature.  You can read about it over here; but the short version is I want to see a bit of your world so link up your post in the comments!

Found in a corner of an abandoned structure at the beach.  It reeked of pee and I also found this;

So it’s definitely NOT my favorite corner.

I’m sharing this in the Details WordPress Photo Challenge.   

Do take a minute and check out last week’s participations by clicking the links;

Have a great Tuesday! And remember to share a bit of it with me.

Change: Drought season is over

I mentioned we were going through a horrible drought period where people in the metro area had water rationed to even one day of service in four days.

People found crazy (but really practical) ways of attaching all kinds of water saving containers to their showers.  I had never seen so many people from the capital suffer from a drought before.

Our governments approach was (as for everything else) mediocre at best investing I don’t remember how many millions of dollars (that the government DOESN’T have) into “cloud seeding”.  I don’t want to remember the details, but we were outraged.  Our people were the test subjects for orange agent, birth control pills, breast milk drying pills and many other trials, so we are reluctant.

Anyway, I told manfriend it would be a couple of weeks until we were hearing news about how there was too much rain and too much water because the rain season was upon us while the drought was happening.

And alas:

Floods in places.  People whining about umbrellas.  There’s no winning for the weather.

Shared to this week’s WordPress Photo Challenge.

Have a lovely, sun filled day!

Beneath my feet

Beneath my feet there’s this earth that I love and share.

Beneath my feet there’s disappointment and the weight of everything I haven’t done, of all I have broken, of all that I owe.

Beneath my feet there’s this town, foreign and strange.  And it could be any town in any part of the world.

Beneath my feet there’s this life that I never dreamed for myself where I’m not the person that I thought I would be.

But in this life there’s a love bigger than my heart that fills my whole soul.  A love that makes me strong everyday and gives me light to shine my path.

Beneath my feet there’s a hope for a better day everyday, and that hope is simple;  a laugh, a joy, a clear sky.

I’ll take all that is yes, I’ll be humble and thankful and I’ll carry it beneath my feet. 


PS  I took that photo before the challenge was posted, casually it’s the same style as the one the Daily Post used.  I took it as a sign.

Tuesdays of Texture | Week 19 of 2015

Every Tuesday I post a photo of a texture or the use of a texture and share a detail of my part of the world.  

I invite you to join in the fun of sharing an image of the textures around you by including a link to this post in your own post (you don’t have to make an exclusive Tuesdays of Texture post!).  You can also @ naramilee in twitter or instagram if you want to share an image from either platform. 

You can find an image you like during the week if you don’t have one today 🙂

This is a view of manfriend’s storeroom.

I received these boxes the other day without him and was celebrating my victory after finding a place for them (all one thousand of them) because I thought I had won at receiving.

So I was thinking very highly of my receiving capabilities when a few days later he began assembling the boxes and discovered that they had no carrying handles or vents.   Yeah.  Receiving FAIL.

You can find last week’s contributors here:

Interesting outing series with different textures at ladyleemanila. 

Adorable puppy with a magnificent snout at klara’s.

Thanks to them both for sharing their images 🙂

This week’s weekly Photo Challenge theme is intricate and I’m sharing this photo over there.

I hope you have a great day!

I was amazed at the way the silk seems to zig zag around each turn.  I imagine this spider wanted a web with a bit of flare and she got it!

I’m also sharing my photo on this week’s WordPress Photo Challenge.

Speaking about sharing, these lovely folk shared an image for last weeks Tuesdays of Texture, do check them out:

Debbie shared a shot with a great example of color popping the texture.  And also a bit of paranoia illustrated.  She also shared a beautiful shot of a house in ruins… mmm woody. 

Since I mentioned colors popping; creek rose shared this beauty. 

Norm shared a dazzling collection of textures, colors and reflexions taken at an ice hotel.

Just so you don’t get chilly, Klara shared these lovely bouquets of roses!   

I hope you have a lovely day!

Reward: Blue prints are here!

Today I inadvertently locked my daughter in this room and manfriend had to break the door – movie style –  to get inside.

In case you are wondering, not being able to tend to your child because they are locked away somewhere while they cry knowing that you can’t get to them is pretty much the most direct way to a heart attack.

And then the door had to be fixed (because ninja manfriend sent pieces of it flying everywhere, I should’ve filmed that).  Or at least in manfriend’s world it had to, I couldn’t care less about the door.

Then a few hours afterwards she locked herself in the bathroom.   Yes, seriously.  Thankfully that door opens with a table knife, so it was one less door to replace.

All this happened in between long distance calls with our suppliers who delayed our orders because the snowstorms have been so strong.  And all orders were emergency ones.

My point is that it was a long day.

So this feels particularly rewarding.

Blue prints.

The blueprints for manfriend’s apartment are here!  *insert very happy dance here*
