After we donated our extra refrigerator from the garage, the stuff inside our garage had fewer places to perch and became a bit jumbled and tumbled.

We had some green totes sitting high and dry and decided to put them into service as storage bins.

One problem, they wouldn’t fit on the flimsy shelf unit we’d inherited with the villa.

So we bought a sturdier shelving unit from Home Depot and BFF assembled it to accommodate the idle green totes.

Now we have a tidy place for everything to hide inside . . .

And can keep everything in its place . . .

Aah . . . that’s better!

I wrote and scheduled this post several days before the WP Daily Post issued the Weekly Photo Challenge ~ Inside.  Note the uncanny similarity between their totes and ours.  Spooky!  All we’re missing is the baby!

Some cultures shun cameras, feeling that photos steal more than the show ~ they steal the soul.

Literally.

They suck the life right out of you.

In those cultures, you’ll never hear, “Smile and say C~H~E~E~S~E!”

No matter how perfect the Kodak Moment.

Life is full of unexpected pleasures . . . and sweet surprises!

Make a wish and blow out the candle.  Notice pink flamingoes whenever they cross your path. Go with the flow. Enjoy twists and turns. Celebrate the NOW.  

It’s probably NOT “the end of the world.”

Aah . . . that’s better!

Green is the theme.  The theme is green.  From hither and yon.  To points in-between.  What’s the greenest thing you’ve ever seen?

Besides envy.  ;)

Aah . . . that’s better!

On Friday night, we went to Bayfest and enjoyed the Porch Party on Pine.

After getting our fill of beer, wine, and hors d’oeuvres, we walked down to the pier to watch the sunset.

Where we enjoyed the silhouetted palms and sunset beyond.

And spied a lone heron on the beach, ready to grab a snack from the surf.

Aah . . . that’s better!

The Weekly Photo Challenge is Big.

This is BIG . . .

This is BIGGER . . .

This is BIGGER too . . .

This is BIGGEST . . .

Ever notice how BIG things often emphasize their BIGNESS by stretching their arms WIDE, WIDER, WIDEST . . . except, of course, when they don’t have arms at all?  ;)

Aah . . . that’s better!

Thought to Ponder:  Life = a multitude of mundane moments, interspersed with a few glorious moments of revelry.  The secret to happiness . . . find joy in the mundane. Laugh at the absurdities of life.
