Team Up Thursday: Breakfast

Oh! The angst this week fellow diptychers!
What made us choose 'breakfast' as a theme????

I mean, to start with, heavenly images of frying eggs, bacon and pancakes sprang to mind........ but then left. I thought of trying to capture Himself's face over breakfast first thing in the morning....but I was endangering my lens :-D. JoLyn went out to see the horses having breakfast but was still uninspired.

I had actually had a picture in my mind all week, after seeing our two cats line up for breakfast at their bowls recently; I kept waiting for the scene to repeat itself but Pippin was obviously feeling uncooperative and was nowhere to be seen. As a result I had to make do with a solo Morticia as she chowed down the other morning. I'm not sure if you can see it but she's actually looking at me out of the corner of her eye!

'What is that mad woman doing lying down on the laundry floor???'

JoLyn on the on the other hand captured a classic example of the sort of multi tasking many of us perform at breakfast!

So it is with trepidation that we give you our hard earned and dubious 'Breakfast' diptych today.

Would you like hash browns with that??

Check out what other duos have prepared for you today/night...over at Team Up Thursday!

Yes, I would like hash browns, thank you. I love the ordinary as much as the extraordinary. Both of the pics are relatable that we'll all get a smile out of them. Truly just a part of our everyday lives. Nice dip, team.

JoLyn said...

I love your description of your cats! Thanks for your patience with me this week--I'll be better next week!

carrie said...

LOVE the angle of yours Ariz! And that sweet little furry head, too.

Joanne said...

Probably not the easiest of themes, but you have both done well. I too love it when pics capture moments of our ordinary lives.

Maggie said...

I LOVE it! I love the themes that are just a glimpse of the every day life...so telling!

Megan said...

oh you make me laugh:). it's too bad the cat didn't get a photo of you lying on the laundry room floor ;).

Amy Jo said...

I like the solo cat in the photo, though. The empty bowl in the foreground is nice!

Andi said...

I have really enjoyed seeing the work the two of you have produced over the weeks...this one is especially nice to me because of the cat! I see such similar things here as I head off to work each morning. Our cats are the only ones here that actually eat breakfast on weekday mornings-haha
Fabulous work, as always!
