Mystery Photo #121

What a week!  I was so busy at work that my head was spinning by the time I went home each night.  It’s ok though because I just have to get through today, and then I can enjoy a much deserved weekend.  This weekend will be especially great because yesterday was my oldest son’s 21st birthday, so we are going down to his college to take him and his girlfriend to the Mandarin restaurant.  It is the best Chinese buffet around, and I am going to pig out!!  I might even have a couple of fancy drinks with umbrellas in them, which will be entertaining for my children because one drink and I will be sloshed.  The last time we were there for one of their birthdays, they kept ordering me more drinks when I went to the bathroom.  Funny aren’t they?

So, what do all my blogging friends have planned for the weekend?  Is it going to be a busy one or a relaxing one?  Or maybe a combination of the two.  Whatever your plans are, I hope you all have an amazing weekend.  Now, let’s start it off with some fun.  It’s time to play the mystery photo game, and all I’m going to say this week is that you should think very carefully :).  Ok, ready, set, go….

  1. howdy pardner, we’re off house hunting in the West Country for the weekend which will be fun. I think that this looks like ceiling detail from your earlier mention of ceilings this week. Your’re just checking that we don’t just check in on Friday’s aren’t you?

    Has to be a ceiling.

  3. are you sneaking into my home again–it is the ceiling of my celestrial bathroom on the main floor of my manse–if you snuck in for the pic you should have stayed for some tea!

    Um…your doodle pad at work. You slack off way too much. I’m proud of you. Happy birthday to your son

    It’s what they had before television and why they invented it. 🙂

    “and I have saved my favourite of all for my next post. Stay tuned!” – gotcha 😉

    I don’t believe a word of it. It’s a fancy washboard from when you did royal laundry just before being whisked away by a prince who kept frogs for a hobby. Thats a lot more sensible than ceiling design. 🙂

    Blast. All that detail offered and I don’t have a clue what it is!

    It is a seafarer’s calendar embedded in the ceiling of a lighthouse!!! Or it could be a lighthouse door that inspired Alfred Hitchcock to film “The Birds.” Did you have more than one drink when you posted this? Have fun and Happy 21st to your boy too. That’s a big one. 😉

    • No drinks yet – that’s tomorrow night :). It is a big birthday isn’t it? I was laying in bed last night feeling kind of sad thinking back to when he was born and all that we went through because he was very sick. It seems like just yesterday, and I can’t believe how 21 years have flown by and what a handsome man he is now. I started thinking about all the things I miss: all of us cuddling in bed on Saturday mornings watching cartoons, the never ending hugs and kisses that I received when they were little, Bryan saying “I you Mommy” which was his version of I love you, reading to both boys every day, and all the crazy wonderful things that little kids say and do. It made me kind of sad for a bit, but life moves on, and now it’s time for Mike and I :).

      • dorannrule says:

        Aww, what a wonderful Mommy you were and are. I do understand all that nostalgia too and I feel it when I look at our grow up son who was such a funny little boy. But you are so right, it’s time for you and Mike now, and I have the feeling the kids will work their way back into your arms more often than you think. 🙂

      • I hope so! Thanks Dor :).

    This is part of the ceiling from your Ottawa trip, I remember looking at this very carefully & trying to figure out what all the different figures were! At first glance I thought it was a backsplash, but no – it’s definitely the ceiling!
    Absolutely no plans for this weekend, but you go have fun & wish Brian a Happy Birthday from me!

    I have an essay planned for this weekend, and the weekend after that….and the weekend after THAT. Waaaaa. :O

  11. Good morning everyone :). Well, most of you had paid attention to my blog posts this week and figured out that this was a close up of one of the ceilings we saw at the Parliament Buildings in Ottawa, Ontario. Now it’s still not my favourite one that I promise to share with you soon, but it was gorgeous. I don’t think there were any two ceilings the same in that place! Have a great weekend!!
