CEE’S ODD BALL CHALLENGE 2015 – WEEK 12

Saturday, Jeff and I headed over to New Hope, PA to wander the streets and take in the sites.  The weather was suppose to be nice enough (it wasn’t) and I was in a window shopping/spend some money kind of mood.  Anyway, after strolling for a couple of hours, Jeff ran to the car to refill the meter’s belly.  He lost sight of me for a minute when he got back to where I said I would wait for him.  (I lied.  I got sidetracked.)   He was not surprised when he found me half way down an alley gawking at this macabre mix of mannequins.

He knew exactly why I needed these pictures.  And another thing I need are those rose colored glasses!

CEE’S ODD BALL PHOTO CHALLENGE 2015 – WEEK 11

I sat down at my computer to compose this post and it made me think: Why do I do so many Odd Ball posts?  Well, I’m not going to worry about it.

Here are some odd shots of some ‘decor’ around town.  The town slogan:  “Collingswood. The place you want to be.”  Or something like that.

I got a look at my 5 figure tax bill recently.  I’m not so sure anymore.

I was real conflicted about it, as DeNiro said in Analyze This. (P.S.  This movie is an oldie but a goodie – kind of like me.  If you haven’t seen it, it’s good for a chuckle – kind of like me.)

Boss Paul Vitti: I wasn’t really gonna whack you.

Dr. Ben Sobel: Paul…

Boss Paul Vitti: Okay, I was gonna whack you. But I was real conflicted about it.

Anywho… Crocheting?  Knitting?  Combo of the two?  Is it art?  Is it tacky? It certainly is Odd Ball.

CEE’S ODD BALL CHALLENGE 2015 – WEEK 10

For 25 years I worked in an office. (Some of you might know this so hang in a minute…)  After a healthy dose of downsizing, I decided I’d go to college (natural progression, right?) After graduating, I went into teaching (a life long dream, and I’m getting to my point, I swear!)

I taught Developmental Kindergarten, Kindergarten, and First Grade.  So after retiring (here it comes) I knew I couldn’t take on a part time gig without having the words, “FUN” and “KIDS” and “PLAY” involved.  So now I ‘sit’ a little genius, and on no school day, his bro.

Sometimes, girls (and their charges) just wanna have fu-un. 😉

ZRobotMy buddy wanted to be a robot for the day.  Fun!

Sometimes we make it up as we go along

We made Lego names for an Instagram Challenge I entered.   More fun.

And, although this is a moving Odd Ball, still, fun, Fun, FUN!

CEE’S ODD BALL CHALLENGE 2015 WEEK #8

When I was a kid I would never let a single vegetable pass by my lips and into my tummy.  Things are different today.  Very different.  My dear sweet mom is amazed at the things I will cook, serve, AND EAT! She said I never ate an egg til I was 18.  I don’t remember, but I believe her.  Now I not only eat eggs in any way, shape, or form, but veggies are my side of choice when we go out to breakfast.

Last year was the Year of the Brussels Sprout. I wouldn’t even entertain chewing those things, but one day, after seeing them on a blog post, I had a change of heart. Jeff cooked them, I tried them, I loved them! Look at what I missed!  Time wasted!!

Yesterday Jeff and I took our usual Sunday road trip to a local diner and I ordered a five veggie omlette.  Not only were there five vegetables in that baby, but it came with a side of grilled zucchini instead of potatoes.  Don’t get me wrong.  I LOOOOOVVVVVEEEE potatoes, but my hips don’t.  I use to be able to eat just about anything and still look like Twiggy, but something changed.  Go figure.

Funny thing was, our waitress asked the kitchen for a side of potatoes. So when I shyly mentioned the error and told her it was ok, she kindly brought me my veggie.

Well, not only did I love my zucchini, but IT LOVED ME BACK!  Look here.  Do you see it?

Delicious, cheese covered greens.  And not only did they love me back.  They did it twice!

This girl ate the zuke’s AND the spuds.  Twiggy be damned!

CEE’S ODD BALL CHALLENGE 2015 – WEEK 6

Well it’s been a heck of a couple of weeks.  Mom went from the nursing home, to the hospital, and back again.  She’s doing well (thanks, in case you’re asking 😉) but it’s been a hell of a roller coaster ride.  In between there and back, I had carpel tunnel surgery.  It’s put a crimp in my style – like I have one – but I’m coming along (thanks, in case you’re asking 😁)

It did supply me with a creepy odd ball photo for your viewing pleasure. (Or not 😫)

image

It has also freed up some time for me to be bored out of my skull.  Good side is, I find that I can do more with my left hand than I thought.  I’ve also been meditating more along with a very cool app called Calm, and I’ve even gotten Jeff to join me.  Oh and Rocky too. He’s healing well from his cancer/amputation (thanks, in case your asking 😊🐶) and is meditating along with us.  No lie!  He lays down, breathes rhythmically, and when we’re done and the app is quiet,  he lifts his head. Come on! Really?  Yes.  Really.  Kind of odd.

And not to leave one of my favorite oddities out, Abby’s back.  She’s dressed for all the predictions, but we have lucked out here, so far.  Jeff’s daughter lives in Massachusetts – 7 feet of snow and it’s not letting up!  Can you say “South Caroline here I come!” ? And north Jersey has gotten it’s share, but we are hanging in, much to Abby’s dismay I would imagine.  Don’t worry Abs ol’ girl.  The meteorologists can’t be wrong forever.  Or can they? 

Abby Abnormal - with her positive attitude.  Bring your sled and it will snow. ;-)

CEE’S ODD BALL CHALLENGE 2015 – WEEK 4

His mom says he’s a goof.  I say he’s an adorable odd ball.

And what’s more appropriate for an Odd Ball Challenge than a five year old odd ball of fire surrounded by colorful plastic balls in a giant ball pit.

Now, ladies and gentlemen,  find waldo…

ballpit 1

That one was a breeze.

Now this…ballpit 2

OK.  That wasn’t all that tough either.  Still, a little odd. Wouldn’t ya say?

CEE’S ODD BALL CHALLENGE 2015 – WEEK 2

Week two!?!? What happened to my week one!?!?  Time certainly do fly!

Anyway, there’s this new girl in town.  She is quite the partier and dresses for every occasion.  This was her New Year’s attire.  She was ringing it in in a jazzy fashion.  I’ve named her Abby.  After Abby Sciuto (Pauley Perrette) of NCIS.  They are both funky and avante garde.  (And I’m betting Pauley is a partier too. )

My neighborhood Abby has another get up on this week, but I didn’t get a shot of that one yet.  So you might be seeing more of her as she tends to dress for the occasion.  I’ll let you know when she slips into something more comfortable.😉

Meet Abby…
