RagTagChallenge-Soft

~~~~~

soft

easy to mould, cut, compress, or fold;
not hard or firm to the touch.

~~~~~

Soft…and my first thoughts

were of our second born

and his collection of soft toys.

Which he still has!

 

My next thoughts turned to photography

and soft-focus…not as in bokeh, rather

just to take the harshness out of an image.

quartz

a hard mineral consisting of silica,
found widely in igneous and metamorphic rocks
and typically occurring as colourless
or white hexagonal prisms.

Although I cannot see any green (colour vision loss)

in this Amythest now, which may be due

to using an on-camera flash for the photo,

I thought I could when I purchased it for MGW

for our 35th wedding anniversary a month or so ago. 

The stone is an Amythest (our birthstone)

which, according to Google, is

a member of the quartz family.

birthdays

the anniversary of the day on which a person was born,

typically treated as an occasion for celebration

and the giving of gifts

The pandemic stopped many events…

 

…however, family birthdays continued…

 

…albeit in a smaller format.

Earlier this year, we celebrated

the first birthday of our first grandchild.

Word-of-Day-Challenge-Wonderment

~~~~~~~

~~~~~

a state of awed admiration or respect
~~~~~

Wonderment was an ideal adjective to describe

our Granddaughter’s reaction to some special

treats on her first birthday.

 Just lucky mum was nearby to

save her hand from the flame.

~~~~~

Word-of-Day-Challenge-Irresistible

~~~~~~~

~~~~~

too attractive and tempting to be resisted.
~~~~~

Our granddaughter had an irresistible urge

to climb into the box.

Trouble was she had not, at that stage,

read the chapter titled

‘How to get out of a box’  😉

I’m sure her reaction would be

the same the world over!

Word-of-Day-Challenge-Arctophile

e~~~~~~~

~~~~~

a person who collects or is
very fond of teddy bears
~~~~~

Our baby was our resident arctophile; even at such a young age.

As he approaches his thirtieth birthday mid-year

I think he still has all his soft toys and

that their condition is excellent.

A still from a short video we received yesterday.

Just had to signify the day.

An open-air, family get together is planned

for Saturday along with up to 60 ml of rain,

according to the weather forecast.

Is this for me?

A birthday cake,

with all her favourite foods.
