SPF: Takin' Names and Makin' Wishes

Random and Odd's Stuff Portrait Friday is Takin’ Names and Makin’ wishes.

This is how this week works. Your ’stuff unnoticed’ is something you have that goes unnoticed even though it’s right there for the world to see. Or is it? Maybe it’s unnoticed because it’s a secret. You decide.

Your Wish
Stuff Under your sink

Stuff Unnoticed

This corner of the dining area is one that I forget to dust when I clean. That plant is one we got from my in-laws for our first anniversary. It probably represents my marriage - it grows despite ignoring it every now and then and then it flourishes once again when it is nurtured.

My wish

My wish is that "Rob, Rob the Heart-throb" - Army of Dad's best friend (wearing the sunglasses) - makes it home quickly and safely. He leaves today for a 12-month tour of duty in Tikrit, Iraq.

Stuff under the sink

This is the sink in the bathroom. Those are the toys that I rotate out of the tub. The kids get tired of something after a while, so we try something else. It works out well. Then, that is their towles and washcloths.

Did you play?

    I've got lots of dust too! When someone comes to visit, I go on a major cleaning frenzy! I hope Army of Dad's friend is safe and sound.

    I played too :)

    Great SPF! I hope your friend makes it back from Iraq safely. All the toys in my house are in the living room area but the little ones haven't bathed at grannie's yet. Great place to keep them out of sight, under the sink!

    I played.

    I love your analogy with that plant - awesome! Keeping Mr. Rob Rob the Hearth Throb in my prayers. I don't know how the families do it - letting a loved one go away for so long. God Bless you all!

    I played!

    Great photos! Love the plant story, isn't it so true!! I love all your pictures! I wish I had a space like that!

    Tell your friend "Thank You" from my family and I'll keep him in my prayers.
