In response to The Daily Post’s weekly photo challenge: “Today Was a Good Day.”
I’ve always blithely ignored ‘Gallery’ before – not knowing what it was. This prompt has made me find out. I like it. I did wonder, vaguely, how these brilliant bloggers were achieving slide shows on their blogs.
Anyway, the ‘today’ was actually yesterday, but I couldn’t get the pictures to load.
It is always a good day when I am fully involved with the grandchildren and their activities. This day had me even more involved than usual! First, the sports day for young R, and I arrived just in time to see her bounding to a second place in the race she had been entered for. Her house won, too, plus getting the ‘Spirit’ trophy, so that was great!
Then it was back to pick up J from her school. The parents really did do distant whale-watching while waiting for the release of the kids, but I cheated with the picture. I didn’t take any there, and had to go to my archives to produce my past pictures of similar scenes. These are closer than one sees from the school, where one is mainly watching for plumes and splashes.
Then it was back to R’s school to watch her training with the Squad and to bring her home. It was then finally decided that it would be hopeless to try to keep a Wendy House erected a couple of days ago – on the non-entry side of the house – a secret any longer, so they were introduced to it, wet paint and all. ‘Look; but don’t touch!’
So after that it was, of course, a matter of getting the paint off J’s hands …
Then we went out for a good meal at our favourite local called the Chicken Shack, with a superior kiddie playground and pizzas to die for.
Windows seized up as I was ready to post this – fortunately the draft did come up, but only when I started all over again. It wasn’t among my ‘dashboard’ drafts. On seeing that, I had commented, ‘Dearie me!’ or certain words slightly more strongly to that effect, but I sang a solo version of the Hallelujah Chorus in recompense when I found it.
