variety [10/52]

Still feeling under the weather, today rolled around and found me without a shot for this week’s prompt.

A trip to the donut shop solved that problem :)

Now that’s my kind of variety (a fact my ever expanding ass can attest to).

My Husband, on hearing my plan, said “you’re going to go buy a dozen donuts just so you can take a picture of them?” (I mean seriously, where has this man been for the past 16 months???) to which I simply replied, “yes”.

He thought it was a stupid idea.

At this moment, right now, there are five donuts left in that box.

And I only had one.

Yeah, what a stupid idea :)

    So what’s up with you still being sick? You’re supposed to be better by now…. Those donuts are fabulous and it’s a great shot. Is that actually a flower shaped jelly donut? I want.

      Yep, flower shaped. That was the one I ate :)

    i can’t remember the last time i had a donut like that — there are too many food rules in life, aren’t there? i think i’m going to run right out and get a dozen, and go wild! now, where to hide them from my teenagers?

    Donuts clear all manner of ailment. It’s true. I read it in a fortune cookie once. Also, I think those last five are definitely yours – dibs them quick! Hope next week finds you feeling better!

    Oh, I wish I had thought of doing this with jewelry! Because if it’s okay to buy a dozen for photography, I’m there.

    oh, I hate that you’re sick! I hope it’s not pneumonia. But I had to comment about your husband’s “stupid idea” comment … I totally cracked up when I read that only 5 were left and you only ate one. That’s great! And “where has this man been for the past 16 months?” – my husband would totally believe that I’d do something like that. So it cracks me up that you shared that whole dialog. I love it! Feel better and eat another donut.

    Oh, Jan, I love your idea for Variety! I’ve bought flowers but never donuts. I almost wish I didn’t have this knowledge now.

    I’m trying to get caught up on blogs and Flickr after being gone for 4 days.

    Hope you are feeling better!

    i bought a cute little barrel of gumballs yesterday in the Easter candy isle at Wal-Mart. My husband and my son keep asking me if I took my picture yet, so they could open it. I said NO. Don’t touch it yet! I missed last week, just too busy and tired, but looking forward to this week.

      I SO want a gumball machine :)
      Too funny, wanting to know if they can touch it yet. I get that a lot around here too!

    I’m sorry you’re still feeling bad, but what a fabulous photo and perfect for the prompt! And it’s reassuring that even your husband doesn’t understand the photography thing!

      Part of me suspects he just didn’t want to drive to the donut shop ;)
