Update - Fun Monday and Wordless Wednesday

Things are moving forward for the next Fun Monday on June 18th. So far, we have 34 participants that have agreed to show us some of their treasures. For our challenge, I am asking that you show us something that hangs on your wall that is fun, interesting, endearing, sentimental, or otherwise enticing. Select the picture of Uncle Horace, Grandma Galt's needlepoint, or little Susie's first finger painting to show the blogging community. The list of participants is in the margin to the left. If you would like to join us or if I have omitted your name, let me know in the comment section. See you on Monday.

Good news, the wonderfully creative Swampwitch of Anecdotes, Antidotes, and Anodes has agreed to host the next Fun Monday event on June 25th. Thanks Swampy.

If you like to do your homework ahead of time, here is Swampy's assignment.

"I can learn a lot about a person by looking at their bookshelves and garage, or carport, or storage house... i.e. places where you store things."

Swampy doesn't know who said this, so if no one knows, she'll take credit for it.

This quote is not to be confused with Plato's quote: "I can learn more about a person in one hour of play than in one year of conversation."

So, here's Fun Monday's challenge for June 25:

Post pictures of your BOOK shelves (other shelves are welcome too: toy shelves,
collection shelves, any shelves) AND post pictures of the inside of your garage or any place where you lock the door when company comes so they can't see the clutter. Rule: Don't clean it up first !



For Wordless Wednesday on June 13th, I posted a picture of a juvenile bird. Originally, I thought that this was a young robin. However, a few days later, I returned to our small grape vine and found this.

The bird hardly looks like the same bird. It changed a whole lot over a short period of time. Nature has a way of doing that growth and development.

Oh, my! I do love their faces, don't you? They somehow look wise and witty at the same time.

Poor little bird. It looks like he's had a rough couple of days.

Do you thing maybe these are two different birds?

This sure looks like Fun Monday Central! Good theme Mjd!

After three doubters, all knowledgable women, suggested, I am thinking that these are two different birds in my pictures. Being able to capture two different baby bird pictures seems amazing to me.

Great birdy picture regardless of what kind it is. I wouldn't know one way or the other.

swampy said...

Have you had anyone volunteer to host the June 25 Fun Monday. If not, I'll do it.

Very cool idea. I look forward to seeing everyone's contributions.

What sort of bird is that, Anni? The Fun Monday sounds interesting...I would like to participate in that, thanks.

I like your wall hanging...the lighthouse is very clever.

Thank goodness I just yesterday finished cleaning up under the stairs. It used to be that when you opened the door something would fall on you. Now it is all organised and labeled ready for next week's Fun Monday!
