Just roll with it

Today’s photo: An arrangement.

An Arrangement

Today’s lesson: Most good things come from just rolling with the weird or the unexpected.

Arrangement was my photo prompt for today. I thought I wasn’t going to do it because the only thing I could think of was a flower arrangement, and I didn’t want to spend any money on flowers. Long after I’d decided to let it go and just post a cat picture, I started wondering what I had around the house that I could make a non-floral arrangement out of. Thus, part of my afternoon was spent gluing origami cranes to chop sticks and poking them into a coffee mug. This just happened because it was what I found to work with in my house. Most days that’s how these photo prompts work out.

And now for the really weird…Alice’s photo of the day. Alice is contemplating getting into the postcard business.

Alice considers getting into the postcard business.

This one came about because I said to my friend in the office today that I needed to think of something funky I could do with Alice today. She said, “The cemetery across the street is pretty funky.” Once she said that, all I could think about was how some recently told me that she wanted Pink Floyd’s “Wish you were here” played at her funeral. Add that to the fact that I’ve been trying to learn how to make things that look like posters and postcards in Photoshop, and you have Alice being a little strange today. I hope you’re aren’t easily offended because this the Alice adventure that has made me laugh the hardest so far. She might not be done being weird yet.

Last, but not necessarily least in my day, we have Jack Cat’s great escape documented. Jack Cat is my six-month-old indoor-only baby.
