Friday letters – the Time Square #7 edition

Dear rain,  Whilst I am not as excited about you as some of the people I’ve been speaking to this week, I am pleased that you have given me the opportunity to use some of my large collection of rain related words and phrases – downpour, pouring, lashing, bucketing, stoating, not taking time to come down, coming down in stair rods and raining cats and dogs, to name just a few.  I would, however, like to ask you to stay away today so that my outdoor activities of walking and playing pickleball are not called off.

Dear drivers,  Just because there is rain falling doesn’t mean that you can forget the rules of the road.

Dear neighbours,  Some of your houses are looking magnificent with so many festive lights and decorations on the outside, round the roof, on the balcony and in the garden.  Your electricity bills are going to be very high this month I fear.

Dear local post office,  It’s almost a pleasure to visit you (apart from the cost of postage stamps of course) with your helpful staff and friendly atmosphere.

Dear Becky,  Today I am sharing a photo of a dandelion clock for your ‘time’ challenge.  As a child I was always excited to find one and to see what ‘hour’ it was by counting how many times I had to blow it to get all the seeds off.  Watching the seeds dancing and floating all over the garden was lovely too.  Now, as an adult, when I see one I think of all the potential new weeds that are going to grow in my grass as a result of the seeds!

Have a good Friday.

December squares #5

The Great Australian Clock hangs in the Queen Victoria Building in Sydney.

Clockmaker Christopher Cook’s animated turret clock tells the story of Australian history from both European and Aboriginal perspectives through the use of 27 paintings, 33 picture scenes, 867 light bulbs and over 130 hand carved figurines. It also includes 32 smaller clocks showing major city times.

We all complain about time going too quickly – running away from us.  This clock outside Glasgow’s Buchanan Street Bus Station is doing just that!

It’s Time for a New Challenge

Becky’s December square photo challenge starts today.  My aim is to post a photo a day for the whole month – it’s not called a challenge for nothing.  She has chosen ‘time’ as the subject and we are invited to interpret the word in any way we like as long as the main photo of our post is square.

As today is also the first day of Advent, it is time to put up my advent calendar card – sent to me, as one has been for the last 6 or 7 years, by a friend.

This post is linking with Becky’s Square photo challenge and Debbie’s Six Word Saturday.
