Contemplation – Week 5: what smells?

Hello again! I’m participating in desleyjane’s blogging challenge Contemplation, where we share our responses to a prompt from her Kikki.K, A Sentence a Day journal. This week’s prompt is: What can you smell right now? Wild orange, citrus bliss, lemon – these are the lovely smells emanating from my diffuser at the moment.  I have taken to using the diffuser as I go to bed…

Mundane Monday – yellow rolls on

Yellow = positive in an ever changing land I like the mind of someone who chooses to use yellow as the colour for something as big and dirty and menacing as a road roller. I know it’s all to do with safety Yet despite the dirt and mud and dust, the yellow shines through like a positive sign and just keeps…

Weekly photo challenge: Half-light (morning and night)

Half-light Half-light is the theme for this week’s photo challenge. Krista asks us to: share a photo inspired by a poem, verse, song lyric or story. If you’re not feeling especially literary or musical this week, see if you can capture the beauty of morning or evening half-light in your corner of the globe. In regards to a poem or lyric that inspired these…

It’s Good iPhriday

It’s Good Phriday today! I took these photos while wandering around the local showground, the day after the town’s annual agricultural Show.  It was a lovely sight – all crisp, clear, clean and reflective. In reality it’s just a little bridge over the creek and an empty grandstand but I like their quietness and stillness after the big, busy and noisy day they…

Blogging thoughts

Apparently I registered my Deb’s World blog 4 years ago – who would have thought I’d still be here?!  I have no reason to doubt the scrupulous record keeping of WordPress but gee whiz that time has really flown by! I do remember writing some early posts and deleting them a short time later so my first recorded post is…

Contemplation – Week 4

Hello blogging friends! I’m participating in my friend’s blogging challenge Contemplation, where we share our responses to a prompt from her Kikki K A Sentence a Day journal. It’s up to week 4 but I only managed to join in last week for the first time – week 3. This week’s prompt is: Name one thing you should do more often. I thought…

Weekly photo challenge: Dancing with fire

Dancing with fire For this week’s photo challenge Ben talks about the rhythm and motion that is all around us. We all dance about the edges of life in lots of different ways. In this week’s challenge, share a photo of something that appears like dance to you — whether you choose to focus on objects, animals, or people (actually dancing, or not), try to capture the rhythm in their…

Stay calm and look at this photo

Cycling and sailing around the Southern Dalmatian islands in Croatia a few years ago produced some amazing views.  It was also a great way to see some of the beautiful countryside as well as being a great adventure. When I saw Hugh’s photo challenge this week with the prompt of calm, I immediately remembered this photo from our trip. I love…
