Take Seven 10th September

It’s Friday!

Welcome to my Take Seven compilation which incorporates all 21 words (or derivatives) from the Three Things Challenge for the past week.
You are most welcome to join in using as many or all of the words too. Just pingback to this post and then leave a link to your post in the comments so that I can see it and respond directly.
As always, have fun, and I hope you enjoy this week’s effort.

Our words were:
biscuits, blind, candle, carnation, chef, cushion, diary, ginger, glass, horse, lamp,  mobile, mug, organ, pen, photograph, plug, rifle, salt, socket, table.

As I was sitting here preparing the weekly 3TC posts, I looked about me. All of the things listed above are here in our lounge and I thought I’d do something different this week and invite you into our home for a cup of tea.

We have blinds up at the windows, and a pot containing a piece of ginger root which is growing nicely is on the sill. Hubby bought me a bunch of carnations this week which are in a vase on the table in the bay. We have a coffee table too which has a glass of water on a coaster and the fruit bowl on it with my food diary, mobile phone, gingernut biscuits in a tupperware box and a couple of pens on the shelf underneath.
The organ has three photographs on it, and alongside that is a small lamp. That corner houses a plug socket and leads for our DVD, mini hifi and monitor screen to view.
We have a variety of knick knacks on the shelves, which include a chef and maid salt and pepper pot, our candle holder, a shire horse and our collection of owls. There is also a miniature rifle on a stand which was a gift given to Hubby by a neighbour last year.
Of course the scene would not be complete with a mug of tea beside me, and Mum’s tapestries on the cushions behind me underneath our fur babies.
Welcome and relax. Milk and sugar? You can even kick your shoes off and put your feet up if you like!

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! In November 2020, we lost our beloved Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. We decided to have a photo put on canvas as we had for her predecessor Barney. We now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of Kizzy, my GSD when Hubby and I first met so had hers done too. On February 24th 2022 we were blessed to find Maya, a 13 week old GSD pup who has made her own place in our hearts. You can follow our training methods, photos and her growth in my blog posts. 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.
