July 22 – Grey

Another Monday and it’s supposed to rain today.   Thankfully I have plenty to do inside.

Today’s Photo-A-Day Challenge is Grey (or Gray as I normally spell it).

POD_July.22_GreyI took a photo of some items that are grey.  They are all items that I have recently been using.

The current book that I am reading has a grey cover.  It is “Promises to Keep” by Jane Green.   It is a great book about friends and family and how they pull together during a crisis.

She is a great author.  She has also written one of my favorites, “Jemima J.”

The other grey is my pencil next to the book which I used in this lighthouse picture.  I like to color sometimes.  It is very calming!  If you haven’t tried it, you ought to!

And, the other grey is my eye shadow.  These colors work to compliment my brown eyes.

Here’s hoping today isn’t grey from the rain!!  If it is, it might make for some great photos!

Hope you have a great Monday!

We love rainbows!

Ian's rainbowYesterday, Ian and I weren’t feeling so great.  Our allergies were giving us fits.

Instead of our usual Sunday of going to church, lunch out with family, and then a lazy day, we simply had the lazy day.

In the morning, we made pancakes and bacon with fruit.  Ian and I had a Mickey Mouse and Minnie Mouse pancake and Kirk had a snowman pancake, among the usual round pancakes.  These were made simply with the spoon and the batter and were quite fun!  We had fun making food together, eating it, and then cleaning up.  Ian is quite the helper in the kitchen!

We then read, watched tv, and colored and drew pictures.  We were inspired to draw a few photos of rainbows.  Ian has learned the 7 colors of them as I had (ROYGBIV – Red, Orange, Yellow, Green, Blue, Indigo, and Violet).

Can I just tell you how fun it was to color and draw?!  A friend of mine has a coloring book and encourages other adults to color when they come to visit him.  This is a great idea since it is relaxing and fun to do.  After all, crayons and coloring pencils aren’t just for kids!!!

Hope you enjoy the rainbow that Ian drew and that we added the pot of gold too, as well as the one with our dear Willie’s quote — “I Still Wonder Where Rainbows Come From.”Wonder-Rainbow
