Every Little Thing – Circles, Curves and Cuddles

Challenges for the Week

For those of you who are not Challenge nerds like I am, the first and last C in the acronyms are Cee and Challenge. The middle letters stand for Midweek Madness, Fun Foto, and Black and White. Lens-Artists Photography Challenge hit a milestone of 200 this week Congratulations to all the Lens-Artists who work so hard.

My pictures are all cell pics taken with my Apple 12S Mini and cropped, straightened, blackened, brightened, and labeled with Adobe Bridge software.

CBWC – Tender Moments

CFFC – Circles and Curves

Vince and I happened to find a Doggie Street Fair last weekend at the Courthouse Square. Local artists came out in droves with loveable art.

These pictures of circles came from our vacation in California.

Thursday Doors and Trios

Vince and I discovered a local market in downtown Prescott where they sell ice cream in the back. We also loved the doggie fair in Courthouse Square. We purchased the adorable larger turquoise-roofed house in the last picture for our patio. It was a close decision between a handmade, red, porcelain Jeep bank with turquoise windows and the turquoise fairy house. We both agreed the fairy house was a better choice for our patio.

FOTD – pink weed

LAPC #200 – Cute Little Things

CMMC – Things Starting with H

Our world is saddened by senseless tragedy as we think about the 19 lost in Uvalde, TX. No matter where we stand politically we can all be united against harming children, whether by an insider – someone from the same town, a racially motivated hate crime planned miles from home, or by an invading army like Ukraine. Killing innocent children/people where they should be safe, is wrong.

My prayers and thoughts are with all those suffering today.

    • Thanks for reading and commenting, SL. The loss is so great and the divide between the NRA group and the liberals is too wide to breach without prayer. I read a good article on the differences the other day. It is unbelievable that they couldn’t say no to AK47 weapons being made and available. Guns are one thing, assault rifles are another. Eighteen year olds being able to get them without a background check is unbelievable.

      • As a childcare provider of 30 years who lives close enough to a school, having to do a ‘lockdown’ in my home and then having to have that conversation with children has not been the high point in my career. Whodathunk keeps going thru my mind. And being married to a retired law enforcement officer, I see both sides. But you’re very accurate in the great divide. It’s pretty huge.

        • Our best friends in CA – the wife a juvenile defense attorney, the husband a county sheriff. It was interesting to say the least. Her current husband is much less open minded than her first. He saw things from both sides and definitely had a humanitarian touch.

    • Sometimes! There are so many great challenges out there, and I can’t do them all! Like you, I like to weave stories around them. Once in a while it works. The doggie faire fit lots of them.

    • It is a horrible tragedy that in a small town might have been recognized by someone.

      In Woodlake, which is about half that size, a kid made a threat on social media. Another kid in Tulare, a larger town in the same county, recognized the kid, told his dad, who was in law enforcement. The long and short of it was that all the school and police officials in Woodlake jumped on it, worked through the night to find and confront the student, and a possible tragedy was averted.


  1. Such a fabulous idea to combine them into one post. I really enjoy the little doggies, so cute.
    Great selections for each theme, Marsha!

  2. Thanks for including Thursday Doors in your challenge response. You have great doors, and I love your responses to the other challenges as well. I have become a big fan of CFFC.

Hi, I'm Marsha Ingrao, a retired educator and wife of a retired realtor. My all-consuming hobby is blogging and it has changed my life. My friends live all over the world. In November 2020, we sold everything and retired to the mile-high desert of Prescott, AZ. We live less than five miles from the Granite Dells, four lakes, and hundreds of trails with our dog, Kalev, and two cats, Moji and Nutter Butter. Vince's sister came with us and lives close by. Every day is a new adventure.
