Monday Discovery: “Mellow Yellow Monday”

I visited Misk Cooks this morning where Misky shares recipes and some of the most beautiful photographs of food you’ll see anywhere. Today there’s a gorgeous photo of rape fields in Sussex and a link to Mellow Yellow Monday, where you’ll find lots of other photos, weekly prompts, and the rules for participating.

So if your Monday is blue, you might give MYM a try.

Here’s my “yellow” offering for today’s Monday Discovery.

Retro: The Writerly Review, June 10-16

Wordle # 60

It’s been a busy week at The Writerly Life, kicking off with The Sunday Wordle: June 10, a wordplay exercise based on the wordles (word lists, if you want the plain version) at The Sunday Whirl. This week’s list whispered an eerie little story to me–“All Fall Down.” I couldn’t leave the story alone, so Follow-up to the Sunday Wordle, June 10 contains a revised version. It seems to want to be a longer story!

Esther Bradley-DeTally graced The Writerly Life on this week’s Monday Discovery with a lovely guest post about being a twin and also about mortality. Esther will have you teary and laughing at the same time! Find more of Esther’s whimsical, poignant, straight-talk writing at Sorrygnat, World Citizen. Thanks again, Esther! What a pleasure to have you here.

At a Loss for Words: June 12: A beachy slideshow of my favorite place to go and wind down, write, read, watch glorious sunsets.

On Thursday, It’s a Wonder-filled World gave you, I hope, a glimpse of wonder. Since my thirteen-year-old granddaughter figures prominently in this one, maybe I’ll ask her to follow up with a guest post about her first trip to New York. She can handle that assignment, I assure you!

I was delinquent last week re the Weekly Photo Challenge, but this week’s was one I knew I could tackle. Check out the Weekly Photo Challenge: Close for my interpretation of “close.” Too close for comfort!

So there you have it: the week in review here at The Writerly Life. I hope you enjoyed dropping by. I hope you’ll be back soon!

Weekly Photo Challenge: Close

This week’s Photo Challenge is “close,” which can be interpreted many ways, I suppose. Here’s one, but don’t make me swear to what this critter really is. The specks aren’t “noise” in the photo, by the way. Dirty window. The author hangs her head in shame. It’s bad housekeeping, pure and simple, but what’s more important–writing, reading, taking photos, family, cooking (see how far down on the list cooking is?), hanging out with Oliver the cat–or dust on the glass?
