Day 181 – Thirteen Candles

How old would you be if you didn’t know how old you are? – Satchel Paige

I’m still a firm believer that I’m just a grown-up twenty-something, but the number of candles on my cakes tell me otherwise. So does my driver’s license. And my skin. However, I think young, and my 10-year old keeps me young (at least I keep on telling myself that)! Tonight we celebrate my oldest niece’s 13th birthday, which is beyond “wow,” how did time go so fast? This once little baby that changed all of our lives is now a young woman. WOW! Well, little brother, welcome to a girl’s teenage years, buckle up for the ride!

Today’s mystery “what is it?!?” picture is something my son insisted that I photograph. So we’ll see if I did a good enough job for him. Do you know? Can you tell?

What Is It?!?


What Was That?!? Yesterday’s Picture (Day 180)

I was convinced that yesterday’s picture would be guessed immediately. If I had not changed the color and used its negative image, all of you surely would have guessed the subject. It’s one of those items that is just really difficult to disguise. But I must have done a better job than I thought, because there’s only one guess to report. Melisa thought it looked like a “bluish blanket studded with diamonds (design)!” I wish!

So what was it? What you saw was a skein of multi-colored yarn. A couple of years ago I picked up my crocheting hooks and became “hooked” … I freely admit I’m a yarn junkie. 😀

  1. Looks like skin…or maybe skin with foundation makeup?

    I know how you feel about the age thing. I find my looks improve in direct proportion to my failing eyesight.


    1. LOL! The subject is not skin, nor skin with foundation makeup (but that would be a good subject to try).

      Anytime I don’t wear my glasses and look in the mirror I think “not bad.” Even my scar (from neck surgery last year) disappears. … and then I put on my glasses. EEEK! ha ha


      1. Yes the non-glasses thing can be a blessing or a b****er.
        Fortunately I don’t smoke anymore which makes blowing out my candles easier and, because of the extra breath I now have, my kids inform me that my cakes are less of a fire hazard.
        I must love and leave you…there is football on the telly here in South Africa. Nite nite…
