Monday Bloopers #4 – A Spark of Light

Monday Bloopers #4 – A Spark of Light

Greetings Humans! It’s the first Monday of November and this month, we are going to be better. We haven’t done a Monday Bloopers post for the last 2 months and I am terribly upset about this. I’ve inspired my Mommy to upgrade to WordPress, I’ve slept sat through hours of post tweaking and blog design and she still doesn’t do the one post that is all about me. Monday Bloopers is a fun monthly meme to show off your pet’s lesser photogenic side.  I guess the idea is to post a photo that didn’t work as well as the shooter anticipated it would. *Camera shooter. It’s hosted by Melissa @ Melissa’s Mocha’s, Mysteries & Meows and if you are in the mood for some feline love, you really should go and visit her. Pet Photo Fails is also a link-up meme, so don’t forget to share your link and to visit the other photo fails. As […]

Wondrous Words Wednesday – Fright vs Freight

Greetings Humans! Welcome to another week of Wondrous Words Wednesday, hosted by yours truly. Wondrous Words Wednesday is a biweekly meme hosted by yours truly. The concept is fairly easy – all you need to do, is share any new (or new to you) words you came across this week and share them with us. You are also welcome to share words you simply want to show off to us. For more on Wondrous Words Wednesday, you can click here. As you know, my Mommy is a librarian and a language teacher. You can imagine all the funny things she comes across on a daily basis. In South Africa, there are 11 (nope, not a typing error – really eleven) official languages. My Mommy’s native tongue is Afrikaans and about 50% of her students speak Afrikaans first language as well. It’s not wonder that the kids sometimes get confused with […]
