Photographs and Pangea and Polymer

4 Jun

What happened this past weekend?

Well, it rained. Alot.

So much so that our cable went out and my husband and I were reduced to playing board games.

And that’s when I found out he’d NEVER played one single game of scrabble before.

Let me preface by saying that I love my husband dearly 🙂

But when it comes to “smart” games, they’re not his specialty.

So that being said, my second word of the game was “pangea”.

You know, the idea that all land was once a single mass that broke apart into the 7 continents and such?

(          )

Well, he legitimately thought I made it up.

And proceeded to make the word “an” and out of the last “a” in Pangea.

I then countered with some pretty lucky words of mine, such as: toxic, knit, etc, etc.. on triple word squares…..

He continued with such enlightening words like: “as” “any” “is” “it” and “hoe”.

The final score was 168 to 52.

Let’s just say board game night was a bust this go around and that I will NEVER make him play Scrabble again.


What else happened this weekend? Oh yeah…………

THIS happened.

You see that polymer cake plate dome on top of the stove?


Well. It dropped from a height of oh, about 10 feet.

And bounced.


Right into our oven’s outer glass door.

Which didn’t just break.


(It made a very nice tinkling music)

So, since they don’t make this particular off-brand model anymore, a new pane of tempered glass is going to be $200 dollars.



Anyways, this post was supposed to be about photography, so here’s some of my favorites over the years to make me smile.

And hopefully start this week off better than the last one ended 🙂

Sorry about the quality of some, apparently they didn’t like digital conversion.

Hope you enjoy some of them though!

If life is getting you down and isn’t going the way you’d want it to and you’re getting into all kinds of messes:

(case in point: Timber and the oil change)

 take some advice from our other puppy Lily:

Just relax and eat your food in bed.
