This is my photographic response to this week’s photo challenge by The Daily Post. I like taking photos, especially for this type of challenge. I find it leads me to see the world differently. And seeing the world differently is something I always find enriching.
The Weekly Photo Challenge topic for today is…Today. We’re supposed to take a photo today and post it. Today.
Usually I read the post and then let the topic float around in my head for a few days until I see something that matches it fairly well, shoot a photo, and post real quick before I get side-tracked. But since the topic today is Today, I thought I ought to take a photo today that exemplifies “today” for me, even though I just finally posted for last week’s topic yesterday.
I took two photos.
Actually I took twenty-two, but these are the two that made the cut. When I got home from our walk to the library and saw the topic, I was even more irritated than I already was that I’d forgotten my camera. So, this is what today was like after the library.
A post-library lunch of leftovers. Roasted vegetables, baked marinated tofu, and mung bean threads with spicy peanut sauce. This is my new favorite dinner. And lunch. It’s not pretty, but it’s fan-tastic. I might try it with kelp noodles one of these days.
Homeschool math, with the standard multi-tasking/distractions. The mini sandwich crackers are actually part of the lesson. We worked on multiples of two today. The flower pot in the upper left holds a bromeliad, which was part of last week’s science lesson (topic: rain forests). The Audubon guide to the southwestern states and the big cats book (open to the leopard section) are just symptoms of my daughter’s ongoing addiction to all things animal. And then there’s my journal and pen refills, which are there just because after twenty-five years of journaling, I still haven’t figured out a good spot to keep my journal.
