K IS FOR ?
"I wish I could remember where I put things. I spend half my life looking for my keys. With the other half I look for my glasses."
~ Sara Paretsky.
Well, I must admit that I was really struggling to think of a suitable K word and it is only today that my K word materialised. I love kaftans but did not fancy modeling one for the occasion. I do not have a pet kangaroo and it was not windy enough today to fly my kite. I have visited some places that begin with the letter K but have no photos of my own. I could not think of any plants that I grow beginning with the letter K. I am partial to the double kerria japonica which my sister grows in her garden. Somewhere I have a photograph of niece when she was much younger where she is twirling on the spot in the garden. A kerria tiara adorned her head and she held a little posy of daisies. It is my favourite photo of her but it is pre-digital camera days. As yet I have not worked out how to use the scanner with this relatively new computer set up so that put an end to that idea.
Then inspiration struck this morning when I was unable to find the keys to my allotment. They were not hanging in their usual spot. We were at the allotment yesterday afternoon and I had locked the gate behind us when we left or did I ? The doubt sets in. Did I leave them in the gate for some passing opportunist to let themselves on to the site and cause havoc overnight ? If so my name would be mud and I would never dare show my face or trowel at the allotments again. Over an hour later I located them and after such a kerfuffle I was no longer sure whether I wanted to go to the allotment :) Earlier this year himself treated me to a little magical gadget which helps you to locate keys when they decide to hide from you. I attached the gadget to my house key-ring and it has been invaluable. Time to buy a magical whatsit for the allotment key-ring methinks !
This is my post for ABC Wednesday - the brilliant idea of Denise Nesbitt. If you are keen to gain more knowledge on that letter K have a peek there now.
