Day 71: Corner View AND an award!

YAY!  What a DAY! 

For Corner View this week, we were to take pictures of what we see when our cell phone rings.  Sounds dandy!  But how, I ask you, am I going to participate in this challenge when A) Nobody calls me on my cell because they know that chances are that B) it is sitting on my kitchen counter being charged? 

As you can tell from my high tech phone, I have a basic basic basic, used only for emergencies.

Which isn't much use when it is HERE and the van has broken down someplace else.  With me in it.  And the kids.  In the rain.  Grk.

For more corner views, head on over to visit Jane at Spain Daily.  I'll be back in bit--going off to take some photos of a friend's adorable pregnant tummy!

LATER:

How fun was it to find that Maureen at Island Roar had given me this awesome award!  I LOVE awards!  :o)  Maureen is one of those great people that I would probably never have the pleasure of getting to know without this wonderful blogging thing.  One of the things that impresses me about Maureen's posts is that when she writes, she WRITES.  She is clever and funny and writes from the heart.  Go over to her place.  Now.  No...don't read any  more of my blather.  I mean it.  NOW!  GO!  ;o)  (But then come back again.  Please?)



To accept this award, I'm to simply link to a few other blogs I love. (I think 5, but Maureen did 3, so I'm following her example!) 

First, I'm going to choose Natalie at Nat the Fat Rat.  For a daily dose of sparkle and because even when she's having a really AWFUL day she manages to be joyful and spread it around.  If you haven't found her yet, you're missing out.  Seriously, she should write a book.  She is that good a writer.  So go.  Now.  But check out Maureen first.  Her blog, that is.  Then Natalie.  Then these next two:

Katie at Color Me Katie because she lives a sweet, whimsical, fun, colorful life--and it shows in her photographs and daily doings. 

Otli at Le Blog d'Otli.  Beautiful photography from a beautiful person full of interesting thoughts.  I just wish I read better french!  He has become a great blogger buddy.  I so appreciate getting to know him a bit.  His comments on my posts make my day brighter. 

So go and take a look.  Click "Follow" on all three of these.  But be sure to come back and visit me.  I'd miss you!

It has been a hodge podge of a post today.  Remember earlier I said I was going to take some photos of a friend's tummuy?  Here are a couple of pictures from Jaime's mini, fun, at-the-last-minute, let's take a few pictures, photo shoot at my place this morning.  More to come.  I just don't have time to edit any more right now.  :o)

Okay, seriously. One word: UPGRADE.

Surely, you're due! Are you on Verizon? So you have to sign a contract....and sign it in blood...which must be type "o" or it's a no-go....

totally worth it for a new phone!

Emily said...

But just the same, you managed the capture exactly what we all see when the phone rings--the phone! I love it!

Hey Kathryn and Emily! You guys weren't supposed to comment until NOW after I finished my post for the day. I know I know...there's a draft box for a reason. But I felt that I had to get CV up before I did anything else.

Kathryn: You're right, except that I really don't need a cell phone much. I know--it's shocking. I even use... *small print* pay as you go. I don't even know why we have a home phone. It barely rings. Garsh, I'm sounding like a hermit! LOL

Emily: I completely forgot it was supposed to be wordless, though. Which would be impossible for me, anyway. :oD

Joyce said...

Beautiful photos. I'm in need of a new phone and will be calling verizon when I get back home. xo

No madness for the phone, may be you're right ;) And Thnaks for thses pretty pictures of your friend... Love love love...

Francesca said...

I had a similar emergency. Problem was I had no one to call! Husband was out of the country, and everyone else was kilometers away. I got the kids out of the car, and we walked until we found a human being.

Thanks to you Allegria ! (just you can replace "she" by... "he" !!! LOL !!! but it's not very important !!! Blogging is a real pleasure for me ! And I like to see that the same idea can be a source of dozens of visions... and a good emulation can exist by the fact. So an award for all the "blogfriends" !!!!

Allegria said...

Otli: Now THAT is hysterical! I'm so glad you're not offended. I don't know why I didn't think about gender--it's not like your posts scream "girly" or anything. A lesson to me though. I'm going to go and change it now. ROFLOL!!!

Gorgeous pictures of your friend. And like you I am lost for the world of cell phones. I never use it and when I need it I can´t find it.
Have a great Sunday!
