Three Things Challenge : #1

Hello and welcome to my first outing as your host for the Three Things Challenge having taken over from Paula of Light Motifs II.

Every day I’ll post three seemingly unconnected things that will hopefully set your mind working.
There are no restrictions on length, style, genre, or anything, just keep it family friendly. You don’t have to use all three if you don’t want to, simply read the prompt and see what it brings to mind. Invite us along by creating a pingback to this post and leaving a link in the comments so that other people can read your writings.

Use 3TC and/or #threethingschallenge as a tag and the logo too if you’d like.
Above all though, enjoy the challenge.
OK then: here are your prompt words:

FIRST, ORANGE, YARD

About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! We have an elderly dog called Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.

    Welcome to the world of daily prompts.

    I hope it’s ok to just directly post my answer here, then create a blog post, as I am not likely to be regular with something like this. I have not done anything like this before either.

    I was the first to grab the remaining orange from the fruit bowl and run out into the yard to eat in peace.

  4. The first orange I ever ate dripped down my chin in the back yard.

  6. Now Paula took it over from Teresa, didn’t she? I’m glad to see you’ve taken up the gauntlet. I’ll try to participate as often as I can, because the 3TC was one of my favorites on Teresa’s blog. 🙂 Okay a shortie in the comments’ section for your first:

    The sun rose,a golden orange orb, in the eastern sky. I was comfortably seated with my mug of hot tea to watch it come on. It’s the first thing I do in the morning (besides visit the WC), and as it rises, I see the plants in my backyard come alive, as if touched by healing rays. I suppose they really are, aren’t they?

    “What words to post,” she thought, “for my first 3TC prompt.” She watched the neighbour and toddler playing in the next yard.
    The child giggled as her mother threw the orange beach ball into the air, and waddled after it, taking her first tentative steps without a guiding hand.
    Good luck with this. Creating prompts is challenging, and rewarding!
    I put my response here — having found my way through various “back channels.”
    I’m not a “constant” or “consistent” blogger, these days. But I did want to say hello, congrats, and put in my “two cents worth” for your first 3TC!
