Ashley @ Every Little Penny
The 'traditional' gift for 5 years is something with wood. I have never given an anniversary gift that corresponded with the traditional material outline but for some reason this year I decided to do that. It's fun and challenging to get creative on a gift that's supposed to be cotton, wood, copper, etc. kids' building block // number from our house sign // alarm clock. It was free to use and I was able to create a collage in 8x10 format and turn the photo black & white. I loaded the collage to the Walgreens website and ordered an 8x10 print for in-store pick up. I found a code online that gave me 40% off prints. The print cost less than $2. 50. I loved how this gift turned out but you can also take this idea and use it for:. Graduation photos and graduation date. Don't you love giving photo gifts.
Even over the winter there are always birds around the fields: magpies, crows, wood pigeons, and collared doves. A few minutes later I turned back to see the buzzard gliding over the field towards the woods. At his approach, diverse alarm calls from other birds rang out, and pigeons burst from the trees in all directions to get out of the way. Alarms often warn us of danger, like the birds' calls at the approach of the buzzard. Some animals have different alarm calls for different predators, like vervet monkeys which have distinct calls for leopards, snakes and eagles. Warning alarms tell you when it's dangerous to stay where you are, like on a railway crossing, or behind a large reversing vehicle. In a previous house, our smoke alarms were programmed to beep when the battery needed testing or changing, emitting individual high pitched "pips" every couple of minutes until action was taken.
I was dreaming about a poem, the dull thluck thluck of a typewriter’s keys punching out the letters. When I woke up, he was standing outside my bedroom door, smiling ambiguously. He wore black trousers and a wet, wrinkled parachute jacket that looked like it had just been pulled out of a washing machine. Still groggy with dream, I lifted my face toward the alarm clock. “What time is it. ”. “Hello, Son,” he said in Vietnamese. “I knocked for a long time. Then the door just opened. Then tum-ti-ti, a dactyl, end line, then the words excuse and alloy in the line after. “It’s raining heavily,” he said. The clock read 11:44. “I thought you weren’t coming until this afternoon. ” It felt strange, after all this time, to be speaking Vietnamese again. “I tried,” he said equably. The sound of rain filled the room—rain fell on the streets, on the roofs, on the tin shed across the parking lot like the drumming of a thousand fingertips. “I turn the ringer off when I sleep,” I said. “Come on,” he said, picking up a large Adidas duffel and a rolled bundle that looked like a sleeping bag. ” He loved speaking in Vietnamese proverbs.
