Weekly Photo Challenge: Today

Two friends from work (JS) and (MK) alerted me it is National Donut Day.  Or is it Doughnut?

It is the 75th one so where have I been all these years?

I usually get that kind of info from Foodimentary blog and he is saying it is National Doughnut WEEKEND!

The Weekly Challenge came in this afternoon that you must take the photo TODAY so I shot a few photos of the  Highland Park fountain in the rain on the way home from school and the lawn ball in the garden with water drops for today’s post  of TODAY

and then my friend Steve came home with a chocolate donut he had gotten for FREE at the Giant Eagle.  Can you believe it ?

And he offered it to me.

So of course I took that donut and unwrapped the wrinkled bakery tissue from the sticky frosting (humidity is high high high today) and put it out on the front porch ledge and started to shoot away.  I did take a bite out of it for photographic purposes. Honestly, they don’t make donuts like they used to back when I was a kid………… The peeling paint on the stone ledge adds a lot to the photo in my  opinion.

(If I were to eat a doughnut it would be without chocolate  frosting)

Free from Giant Eagle today on National Donut Day.


Behind Giant Eagle on Shakespeare Street

I wrote and illustrated a little book for the students called You Need to Read.  It illustrates reasons you’d need to read–sorting baggage tags for the different destinations at the airport, a firefighter finding a street name on the city map, a chef reading a recipe, a patient reading the medicine label, high voltage and thin ice. Love the exclamation point.

The importance of reading signs, what to dump where?

I am sure there was a reason someone wrote this on the dumpster but who read it?
