Sweet supper

#Food #Sandwich #Hazelnut #Chocolate #Spread #Supper

Sat in the kitchen – pondering

What to have to satisfy my inner pooh bear

End of the cupboard – the bread bin

End of the corner cupboard – the provisions store

Taking the last of the hazelnut spread tween two pieces of wholemeal – delicious!

In the kitchen

Cat Sleeping in a kitchen
the prompt

It’s not easy when you’re little
the obstacle course
of the family house
can be treacherous
at the best of times

And after you wake up from your bed
if your mum isn’t there
you wait for what seems like
another lifetime
for your owner to appear

So while i wait for breakfast
i’ll enjoy another catnap
with my catnip mouse
and ball of wool
in the corner of the kitchen

Light green moments

Saturday morning, and I’m pondering the next shade of colour in fees fun foto challenge

lime green

now you say lime green to me, and my artistic thoughts go directly to the fruit bowl

lemon-lime-paint

But limes nowadays seem much darker in tone than what I’d normally associate them with….you would have to split  them open to get the colour you were looking for

But a quick scan of the kitchen cupboards soon reveals this light green colour.   In a packet of custard, or perhaps pasta or even strawberry jelly (strange but true). For the doubters it’s the one in the green packet…

lime jelly ? An acquired taste.

and outside in the garden, the trees have more of a lime green colour to them than the actual shade of a dark green limeimage.jpg

look again… and the outside of the lime is hiding in plain sight…

Messy

Messy

It might look like world war three has arrived in the kitchen

but in reality , a masterpiece has been created

sticky fingers and flour dust on kitchen tops

even more on the cupboard doors and floor

colourful paintwork adorned on the table tops

while the finished article hangs on the refrigerator door

and all created to send out a message

“Happy Mothers Day!”

So as i pondered over some buttered toast , i considered what sort of images i could use

I like butterflies, i like the coloured patterns on their wings

I took this picture of a yellow and black butterfly whilst on holiday in Zakynthos, in Greece.

#coloryourworld #atomictangerine

the atomic tangerine 🍊

dropped into the pool of

clear hot water 💦

Reactions to the spheres arrival

as it nose dived into the blue

were instantaneous….

Little children 👶 smiled away

not it in the way

it fizzed away

Like orangeade exploding

into the blue

but  mostly how its scent

originally meant

for the upstairs bathroom

could be found In the kitchen too

The Kitchen Floor

Animals, Humour, Life

in response to the prompt : Dirty

When washing a kitchen floor –

it’s important to do it right

Make sure your cleaning materials

are ready for use…

Make sure the water is hot enough

to get those sugary spots off the tiles…

Use plenty of detergent

to catch every bit of dust,gravy, fat or egg

And finally – if one of you has taken the dog for a walk,

remember to take a towel with you

Doggy paws are pretty – but not when someone has just cleaned the floor!

(Note to the reader – the same approach applies to little children – only don’t clean their paws unless its time for a meal!)
