Home » WordPress Weekly Photo Challenge » WEEKLY PHOTO CHALLENGE – ANGULAR





A structure in Barkley Farmstead in Cherry Hill, New Jersey.  I go here to walk, think, admire, observe.  I am almost always with my five year old charge.  I spend five days a week with this bright charming fellow.  Here is a snippet of my day.  I love my job.

HIM:  Why are there Chrisrmas wreaths hanging in stores before Thanksgiving?

ME: I don’t really know, bud.

HIM: I love Christmas.  I can’t wait.

ME: Don’t rush it, pal.

HIM: Do you know what I love about Christmas?

ME: No.  Tell me.

HIM: I love the presents.

ME: Me too.

HIM: And I love that I get to eat candy canes.

ME: Yup.

HIM: And I love the joy of family.  (No lie. He said that. Verbatim.)

ME: That’s a really nice thing to say.  I’m glad you feel that way.

HIM:  I can’t help it.  It’s so joy-able.  (Also verbatim.)  😉

  1. Just goes to prove that if a kid likes what he hears, he’ll repeat it. Fortunately for you, and us, he heard ‘the joy of family’. Joyable post, Gemma!

    • He may have heard it but he’s a sponge and very bright. When I interviewed for the job and met him and his brother, he was three. He explained to me that he needed to be a good listener or he would have consequences. I was impressed and have been ever since. 🙂
      Good seeing you, gerry. Hope you’re doing well.

  2. Beautiful picture! I do love Christmas too. Happiest time of the year and my son simply savor everyday of it. We already have a Christmas Tree and I do know most will put it up after Thanksgiving. But the way time flies, never enough of that joyful spirit! Have a great weekend.

  3. Good Morning! I found you through your comment at Kathy’s Sharechair blog. I am glad I clicked over. Love your photo for the challenge.. textures are very cool and it sure fits the challenge. Love the windows too! I also enjoyed the dialogue with your “charge”. Joy-able is a most excellent word.. 🙂 I am looking forward to this afternoon when I have some quiet time and can come back and browse!

    • Oooo. I let a day or two slip me and now it is evening to boot. And speaking of boots, I love your (August boots pic). So, I say thank you now. For the many likes and visits. We have a few likes in common, beside Kathy. Oceans, kitties, horses, country breezes, food, food and more food (I really just like eating it), reading… There are no horses around me anymore but I do love them. I am not in the country, but enjoy that setting, for sure. Food, well, never mind. Nice of you to visit. Hope to be seeing you, UtO. 😉
