Mundane Monday – Party Lights

There they wait in the living room, just waiting to get plugged in for an impromptu party or even a dreary Monday night.

Linking up with PhoTrablogger and her Mundane Monday post again because I love trying to take interesting pictures of everyday objects.  I ended up turning this picture on it’s side when I edited it, could you tell?

Mundane Monday: Burrs

I dig them out in the spring, mow them down in the summer and burn them as they start to dry in the fall.

It’s a battle and I’m not on the winning side.

They stick to our clothes and our kids and our dogs.

They follow us into the house breaking into tiny pokey pieces until everything we own seems to be infested with their little hooks.

I do not like the burrs.

Though, some mornings, with a touch of sunlight and a bit of spiderwebs, they are quite striking…Burrs

…but this is war, they go on the burn pile tomorrow!

I’m linking up with PhoTrabloggers Mundane Monday Challenge pop over and see what other mundane things people have taken beautiful pictures of this week!

Mundane Monday: Blue

Over the years it has softly faded to the prettiest shade of blue.

Can you tell what it is?

It’s a shame my favorite t-shirt is so worn and see through that when I held it up to the window to catch the light, the camera kept trying to focus through the shirt to the yard beyond.

Despite its appearance I’m sure this is a high quality shirt you are looking at. I found it in an old pile of my parents’ T-shirts from before I was born. Already broken in and cozy, I think it’s worn surprisingly well. It might not block UV rays or, you know, vision but it doesn’t have a hole and it’s the softest t-shirt ever.

I keep wearing it, away from gatherings of mixed company, and crossing my fingers that it makes it through another wash cycle when I’m done.

Once again linking up with PhoTrablogger’s Mundane Monday. Be sure to pop over and check out more mundanely amazing pictures!
