Photo Challenge: RELAX

I have really leaned in to the RELAX prompt lately. Despite two minor glitches with jobs I've been able to put my feet up and accomplish things only on my own terms. Don't worry, I understand what an enormous luxury that is. When things get nutty again I will refer to this challenge to remind me what relaxation is all about.

You wouldn't think that someone who got married within the month would have a lot of relaxing photos to contribute but Our Janet was the first person to submit to this challenge. Must have been a great wedding!

No one knows how to relax like my friend's dog, Olive. Olive could give relaxation seminars to sloths. She is adorable.

There were three submissions of black and white cats to this prompt. I only included two of them. I think of Our Alisun's as The Ninja Submission. This is a cat waiting to fuck with your relaxation plans, right?

We need to make Our Bethany's cat a tiny kitty sleep mask to protect her delicate eyeballs from the harsh light of day. Such a drama queen!

Summer reading
Our Cindy knows how to relax, right? I remember the year I read that book, too. I lay sprawled on the bed of the house I was sitting with the huge hardcover balanced against the pillows. Perfect summer reading!

Therapy Llamas
Actual Flickr conversation about this photo:

Me, "It cracks me up that you included this. Also, THERAPY LLAMAS!!!"
Our Lisa, "I was so totally relaxed and loving these fuzzy dudes! C'mon, LLAMAS!"


I honestly don't know how I'm going to top the previous prompt. I know that some of us are in back to school mode. As a prompt that doesn't do anything for me except provide a jumping off point. When I jumped I landed on BACK/FRONT as my prompt. Do with that as you will!

Please enter by 9am Tuesday August 27th for posting on August 28th. Tag your photos with PHOTO CHALLENGE and BACK/FRONT. Check out the wonderful work in our Flickr Pool for inspiration. Also, let me know if you have any questions. The new appropriate email for that is Kizzbeth117 at gmail dot com.


  1. Olive is adorable, as are the kitties and llamas! And I love the picture of Cindy...perfect summer day, green, warm, laundry in the background. LOVE IT!

  2. llamas! those are fantastic looking llamas :) and should i take Cindy's book as a recommendation? Alisun's cat makes me nervous ... just had to bathe our two last night and it wasn't as easy as usual, so cats and bathrooms are not on the top of my list today. Great set!

  3. Of course there are therapy llamas. Nothing oozes calm and serene like a llama. I love them.

    Prodigal Summer was a very good book.

  4. Well, I picked a GREAT day to come check out your blog. Cats AND llamas! Win, win. Love this idea, by the way.

  5. So glad you came by. The challenge is open to anyone who has a Flickr account (you can get one for free). Hope you'll join us!
