Weekly Photo Challenge: Peaceful

14 Jul

Need to post this for peace.

Not world peace or Greenpeace or green peas, but to still that nagging voice in my head (sounding remarkably like the Hub’s) that says, ‘You haven’t done this Weekly Photo Challenge yet!’  It’s been bugging me since it arrived in my inbox…on January 13th.

Rolls eyes in exasperation at self…

So what constitutes ‘peace’?

I don’t know, which is why the prompt has been sitting in my inbox since January.

I can tell you what’s not peaceful:

Sitting on an ostrich – for either of us.

But I can show you the peace of the calm after the storm:

That’s the only piece of me you’re getting today.

        well, indirectly he prompted you to follow the prompt…..

        love the baby picture – it so reminds me of the trouble we had of getting Techie to sleep.

    So there I was, just sitting on this ostrich, like … WHAT???
    Lovely piece of peace, that – but WOT, no peas?

    You’re slowly catching up, Tilly. That first photo is hilarious, and the last one looks like absolute bliss.

    My favorite is the sleeping baby…I have days like that and I dare someone to ask for more. Delightful as always!

    Oh yeah, those little voices in our head, usually have a way of getting things done, right! Great photo!

    you are very brave to be sitting on an ostrich, they have small brains you know. For them its get physical first and no questions later. I remember well the peaceful and blissful feelings of watching a sleeping baby especially when he found a way to fall asleep on his own. Beautiful. Your rolling of the eyes had to have been instigated by the Hub, I’m sure of it.

    I love coming here, and getting your honest spin on things. Thank you for being real and genuine. Peace.

    I like the baby photo – you can almost hear the noise/commotion that was occurring before it was peaceful!

    too funny… but I do need to know….. why would you WANT to ride an ostrich?


  12. 4joy July 14, 2012 at 16:01 #

    love the not-so-run-of-the-mill photos….and your sense of humor…

    Baby pic proves that when they’re tired they’ll sleep any way, any where. Love ’em (your pics of ‘peace’ that is)


  14. restlessjo July 14, 2012 at 16:14 #

    Ok, I’ll settle for that then. January, huh? That makes me feel WAY better about myself. Mission accomplished.

    Needs saying a lot more, T.B. From the rest of us. Thank you.

    I overslept this morning (9:41 arising) so I missed my Saturday morning of CBS and local news. Instead I’m watching CNN news. The reporter said that Chicago had more street murders than were killed on Afghan fighting. I don’t know if this was U.S. kills, NATO killed, or who. And I don’t have a rerun button on my TV.

    But the numbers were 19xx there versus 20xx in Chicago and that the majority of the murders involved teenagers in Chicago. BTW, Chicago has no gun shops (illegal) within its city limits.

    Great photos! Lol. I especially love the one of you sitting on an ostrich. Ouch for the ostrich!

    There is nothing like a sleeping baby, is there, Tilly?


  18. katharinetrauger July 14, 2012 at 19:12 #

    You were SUCH a beautiful baby, no wonder you made such a lovely young lady. I am so glad for these photos of you! And a chuckle to go with! 😛


    • Tilly Bud - The Laughing Housewife July 14, 2012 at 19:21 #

      Kudos for your excellent taste but that last one is my youngest son 🙂


      • katharinetrauger July 14, 2012 at 19:29 #

        Ooops. I feel so badly about that. Maybe a chocolate malted-milk ball would help? (Is that how “Maltesers” translates into American?) 😉


        • Tilly Bud - The Laughing Housewife July 14, 2012 at 19:30 #

          It does and it will. I praise you for your perspicacity 😉


          • katharinetrauger July 14, 2012 at 19:48 #

            Perspicacity. Shoot. Another word to translate. Um, “accuteness of discernment or understanding,” according to good ol’ Noah Webster. Thanks! 🙂
            The brand name for malted-milk balls, over here, is “Whoppers”, which is a euphemism for a lie, especially a lie about fishing. It also is a slang word for anything large, especially a large fish. So why call a malteser a whopper? Hmm. Maybe ours are larger? 😉
            They are not fishy in any way! Totally addictive and off my diet.
            But if I NEED one . . .

    Oh how I love that sleeping baby. Spud? Tory boy?

    The peace which passes all understanding. May it be yours, but not before your time. Dianne

    “That’s the only piece of me you’re getting today.” – ah, peace for the wicked, then?


  22. grannymar July 15, 2012 at 16:51 #

    I imagine that sitting on an ostrich is akin to sitting on a camel. Would you agree?


  23. Helen Cherry July 15, 2012 at 18:50 #

    That’s some face Tilly!! I’m glad the wind didn’t change 😉


  24. austine July 18, 2012 at 07:41 #

    I love the photo of the kid up against the crib. Very funny. Happy blogging. http://aetcheverry.blogspot.com/

    Lovely… but I don’t recall this one. 😉


I welcome your comments but be warned: I'm menopausal and as likely to snarl as smile. Wine or Maltesers are an acceptable bribe; or a compliment about my youthful looks and cheery disposition will do in a pinch.
