Starter for ten: (summer journal/photo a day)

2013-10-24 00.27.27

Due to my absence yesterday, I am supposed to be uploading two photo a day’s, with the hints ‘fun’ and ‘ten’. We actually had a really fun BBQ yesterday with our friends so that would have made a brilliant photo for yesterday’s task but I got distracted by stuff I won’t go into, so boo hiss to me. I have decided though that this image should combine the two prompts, being as I started my new project at ten this morning and this is what I do to have fun. I would be very surprised if it can be guessed by this tiny snippet at what the finished design will be, so any suggestions are welcomed πŸ™‚


So, two summer journal prompts today, the first one being: “The answer is “yes!” What is the question?”

I’m not exactly adverse to saying that word so It could be ‘Do you want a cup of tea?’ or ‘Which band made an album called Tormato?’, or a load of other things to be honest. Probably be best to choose a question that I would be most enthusiastically answering ‘yes!’ to, which at this very moment in time would be ‘Do you want to run away to a solitary beautiful island for a while’. That sounds like something I would most likely be answering with a triple yes πŸ™‚

Aaaand… number two… “What was your first meal of the day?”

I’m never hungry in the morning and now I have my insulin pump, I no longer need to have breakfast, so that is always skipped. I only start to get hungry midday so I’ve not long had my first meal, which was 2 pieces of wholemeal toast and 80g of raspberries. Precise, I know but everything gets weighed and I really enjoyed gobbling up these yummy little fruits. I am currently splashing it all down with a cup of decaff coffee (it’s going to be a coffee day today I think) and will start preparing our evening meal in a bit. I have zero ideas on what it will be but I know for a fact that it won’t be as delicious as the barbecued beauties we had yesterday πŸ™‚

  1. That current cross stitch… on the left it looks like an angry mushroom, the thing in the middle looks like something scary with lots of legs and eyes… and the right looks like a pizza squid. How’d I do? πŸ˜› I very much doubt it is any of that, but it’s always fun guessing!

  2. Your cross stitch looks like the beginning of a period/historic costume, although the suggestions by the precious comment made me chuckle, my guess is a bit more serious (incidentally, I saw a stunning cross stitch bedspread yesterday at the museum and thought back to your recent monarchs). I admire the time you must spend on these pieces, which always turn out fab πŸ™‚
