A big thank you to Cee for bringing this particular challenge to my attention with her beautiful post. In keeping with one of her subjects, I submit these fruit and vegetables that were waiting patiently for me at my nearby grocer’s for Travel with Intent’s One Word Sunday challenge. Their prices are bit higher than other grocery stores, but they have, hands down, the best meats and produce in town. Their name is Graul’s. Given that this is Maryland, one can only imagine the many different ways we have of pronouncing that one!
“My love,” said GarGar. “You must’nt be so flagrant about your distaste for the Cardinal.”
“I want a new confessor, and that’s it!” As she said the last word, Pbirouette’s voice went up two octaves.
“Your Majesty must learn to indulge your husband, the King in these matters,” whispered Queen Pirouette’s confessor, Cardinal des Croix, “my beloved daughter.” As the left side of his body faced the screen in the confessional booth, he cupped his left hand his eyes. He was very careful not to look directly at the Queen. While over the years, he had really learned to love her as his own daughter, he had learned to fear her as well.
You can’t be serious old man! Thought the Queen to herself. “Well, then what is my penance for disobeying my husband, and acting like a Queen instead?” She murmured at the small but ornately fashioned screen on her side of the confessional. In silhouette, it depicted Daniel in the den of lions. How apt! She thought again. This wasn’t the first time that the irony of this image caught her attention.
“My dear,” replied the prelate. “Do you really want to go against King GarGar in this matter? Don’t you think it would be better to defer to his judgement?”
“That’s just like you men!” She answered bitterly. “You simply must stick together!”
This is one of my favorite spots in all of Annapolis. It is Weems Creek where the little bridge crosses it on Ridgely Avenue. This is my contribution to Jez Braithwaite’s latest Water Water Everywhere challenge (number five.)
Jesus said unto him, Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind. This is the first and great commandment. Matthew 22:37
Sacred Heart of Jesus, pray for me.
Saint Jude, pray for me.
I chose the house at the top of this post for the Monday Window Challenge because I liked the reflections on the glass. The second photo is a close up of the window on the right. The two pictures below get honorable mention. I like the pristine white as a background for the windows. The first photograph was taken on December 6, and the bottom two were taken on the very first day of this month.
