EMPS #87 -- Lamps

I like lamps. They put forth such a soft glow. Here are two of my favorite ones in my house, one in a corner and the other between my two recliners.

To play this meme, go to the the Ellipsis Monday Photo Shoot. It's lots of fun!

Round Robin Photo Challenge -- Anything in Threes

I am back from vacation and ready to play Round Robin again. This time the theme is Anything in Threes, so I went hunting for things in threes. My biggest challenge was to get my three cats all together at the same time.

I got three bananas at once in the following three pictures and a picture of my three grandsons before Emily was born.

Believe it or not, I got a picture of the three cats together, as follows. That is very unusual. I think I managed it by feeding them first. LOL!

Head for the link in the first sentence if you would like to see other things in threes.

EMPS #86 -- Stairs

Good morning to the folks who are visiting me or Carly's blog Ellipsis or both. The theme this week is stairs, and historical or famous stairs brings extra credit. Unfortunately, I don't have any of the latter -- just regular old stairs.

First I have a picture of Silver on my steps going upstairs. He was real good to cooperate and come down from farther up and look at me in a friendly way.

The other steps are the ones going into my house at the various entries. This is the very back stairway, coming off the porch. It isn't used all that much.

Here is the front entryway, which also isn't used very often. Mostly people who don't know me very well come to the front door.

Here is the most used stairway, in addition to the stairs inside the house. It is how we generally get up on the porch and down from it.

If you would like to see the stairs other bloggers have photographed, go to the link in the first sentence.

EMPS #84 -- In the Forefront

I like this theme of the Ellipsis Suddenly Carly meme, where we are to to show something very dramatic in the forefront while we are also making sure that there is an interesting background, too.

The first is a nice plant, which I think might be a forsythia, in front of the neighbor's trees.

Following is a hedge in front of the trees far in back of the house. In this and the previous case, the foliage in the forefront belongs to me and the trees behind belong to one or another of the neighbors.

The last is Silver, on the washer and in front of the spigots the water comes in through.

If you have the chance to participate in this photo meme, I would love to see your pictures! Just go to the link in the first sentence to find Carly's blog.
