Weekend Word Challenge: Balance, Parallel
I was at work when I read the words for this weekend's challenge. I pondered on the first of the words, "Balance" for a moment, then I looked to my left and saw this scene...
The balance between work (the files, the application paperwork for my upcoming CPS Exam, and my planner) and home, family (the pictures of my kids and husband). Given the week we've had with Buddy being sick*, and the juggling we've been doing, it seemed perfect.
The second word, "Parallel" seemed to be a little tougher. I started seeing parallel lines everywhere, and wanted something a little more abstract. Saturday, we were going to my MIL's house. As we pulled into the driveway, inspiration struck.
These trees are huge, you'll have to take my word for that... they've melded into part of my MIL's house in my mind. As has this one:
This would be the non-parallel tree at my MIL's house, and it's just as much part of her house as the other trees.
Don't forget to visit Odd Mix's place to see who else played!
* Buddy is still fighting whatever virus has him in it's clutches. His temp isn't very high, and when the "orange medicine" is working, he's fine. Then the chills come, then the temp creeps up a bit again. The doctor said she has seen some other kids with this bug, and to bring Buddy in on Monday if he still has a fever.
