Weekly Photo Challenge: Dinnertime

Hello my lovelies, it’s once again that time and this week the photo challenge is of a foody nature…that’s right, get ready because it’s… Dinnertime!

Now admittedly, I’m not one who snaps pictures of my food regularly but randomly enough I did take a few yummy photos a few weeks ago when I was rambling downtown with my mom, enjoying the sun and fresh air. With little difficulty, we decided to have lunch at the amazing Taco Shop on St. George Street and partake in their mouthwatering specialty: the UFO. What is Taco Shop UFO you ask, well let me tell you. It’s SCRUMPTIOUS, that’s what it is. It’s a folded, round burrito thing, bursting with meat, cheese, and all the best burrito fixings, and it is DIVINE! With your choice of either Land or Sea as well as Baja or The Works (Land and The Works for me please!), you really can’t go wrong here. (And now I’m freaking hungry again…)

And of course you can’t visit the Taco Shop without immediately going like three doors down to the Snack Shack and ordering some sweet potato fries, you know, to boast your energy as you start waking again… What, you didn’t know sweet potato fries had restorative powers?! Well, now you know 😉

And to think, a Ben and Jerry’s is opening a few more doors down in a few months, and there’s a Kilwin’s on each end of the street. So yeah, you’re definitly going to gain a few pounds walking down this gorgeous historic street.

But what about you my lovelies, what have you been snacking on lately? Are you a food picture-taker, or do you prefer just chowing down as opposed to taking the time to snap the perfect food photo? Let me know 😀

Weekly Photo Challenge: Ornate

The challenge this week is Ornate my lovelies, so I figured a little trip to a beautiful church (Holy Trinity in Stratford-upon-Avon) in England with some ornate and gorgeous stained glass windows was in order… And by the way, this happens to be where Shakespeare himself rests eternally after penning some of the greatest works in the English language! I hope you enjoy!

Weekly Photo Challenge: Happy Place

The challenge this week my lovelies is Happy Place, so I promptly dug around in my massive photo vault (aka the many, MANY picture folders on my laptop) and selected a few that I think do this wonderful challenge justice! I hope you enjoy 😀

OK, OK, OK, so maybe these two are only in my dreams (and my grandparents’ photos from England), but that totally counts right?! I mean I’m a writer, imagination is encouraged in my profession! 😉

But, if I have to pick a place I’ve actually been to (which I guess rules out Belle’s library in Beauty and the Beast, because that was my second choice…) I’d have to say my Happy Place really is my beautiful hometown in all its historic glory!

Weekly Photo Challenge: Boundaries

The challenge this week is Boundaries my lovelies, so I’ve scrounged up a few delightful images from my grandparents’ trip to Scotland and England a few years ago, as well as a picture from my own hometown. I hope you enjoy 🙂

Weekly Photo Challenge: Wall

It’s once again that time my lovelies, and this week the challenge is Wall — and boy was it a challenge. I don’t have many pictures of walls my lovelies, let alone interesting pictures of walls lol, but I scoured my horde of photos and found a few I think are worth sharing 😀

Weekly Photo Challenge: Symmetry

Hello again my lovelies, it’s once again time for the Weekly Photo Challenge with Symmetry being our goal today! I had to scrounge around for a bit, but I think I found some symmetrical pictures worth sharing, even if one is randomly Christmas themed. But really who doesn’t love a plate full of yummy chocolate-covered pretzels? 😀

I love how I snuck the holiday one right in the mix there don’t you? And please don’t forget to check out yesterday’s Valentine’s post, Loving These Epic Romances, if you haven’t already, it’s one EPIC Moonstonemaiden list you don’t want to miss! 😀

Weekly Photo Challenge: Descent

This weeks challenge my lovelies is Descent — which is not exactly what I thought it would be considering the challenge was issued on Halloween, but I don’t pick the challenges lol! Now living in Florida, descent-themed pictures are not readily available, we don’t have cute mountains or hills to helps us here (unless you go North and surprisingly I don’t have any pictures of hills from my FSU days lol!) and in didn’t feel like standing at the top of a bridge or skyscraper — mostly because I turn into a human-sized bowl of jelly when I get more than a foot off the ground — so these pictures will be height related-ish lol!

First up is one of my new pictures from my Bestie Weekend, taken at the Fort:

Next is another new picture, of a well discovered during on of the many archeological digs always happening around the St. Augustine area — one of the hazards and glories of living in the Nations Oldest City! The well’s been encased in what I guess is a very thick glass that you can actually walk on and is in the courtyard of a school building downtown. If you look very closely, you can see some unearthed artifacts that I’m pretty sure were found around the city and placed there for an awesome effect, but it looked amazing in person:

And finally here’s one I managed to find at the last minute of me at FSU after all!!! Miracles do happen people 😀

Me at FSU

And on a side note: I’m right on track NaNo wise, though no one can call me an overachiever lol! One of my writing buddies has over ten thousand words already and I have to keep reminding myself I’m better under pressure and that my word count will pick up the closer to the end of the month that we get. And I’ll be posting more of the Ratha story either later today or tomorrow, but a warning: things get very dark for a bit before picking back up. I give you a glimpse in to the marriages of the three friends and for two of them, things are about as bad as they can be, so just that keep in mind for the next post or two.

 

I’m Going On An Adventure!

…Or rather I went on an adventure but either way there’s adventure afoot my lovelies! This past weekend my bestie and I had a Bestie Weekend (a clever and original title of course, lol) and we spent our time racing from one place to the other, having fun, meeting new and old friends, eating out,  and generally ignoring real life for a day or two which is always lovely. I think I took literally hundreds of pictures — refreshing my collection for future weekly photo challenges — and I figured I’d go ahead and post a few now just because I feel like it 😀

So…we began our whirlwind wonderings of St. Augustine at the beach, because I mean where else would you go when you’re waiting for a taco party to begin?!

And then skipping forward a few days we hit Downtown for some awesome Barbeque Chicken pizza at Al’s:

Before spending a few hours meandering aimlessly down winding St. George Street and the sprawling green of the Fort!
