X is for Wishes


I love it when I see contrail Xs in the sky!
An X can be a kiss, a spot for hidden treasure or a symbol to make a wish.  Not wanting to waste this great big X above my house, naturally, I made a wish and took it's picture!
Maybe someone was sending me a little love today!

I've joined the A to Z Challenge for the month of April!
We're celebrating the letter X all day Friday, the 27th.


And this is also the perfect photo to join in with Sky Watch Friday!
They celebrate gorgeous skies from all over the world at the end of every week!

    4. OK..good. I didn't want it to look bad. I seemed to have so much empty space on the sides and wanted to make my photos larger, so I fiddled with the widths in my template.

      Have you had a nice day? I've had a terrible headache~ ugh.

      Delete
    5. poor dear, I hate headaches:( try to rest early I had a lovely day I was in the Library a lot of time many times I didnt go!

    6. Oh, that sounds like fun! Is everyone well now?

      Delete
    7. yes thanks. Betsy the only porblem I think, the pictures are amazing and beauty but your sidebar look a little far, but you can see tomorrow, not today with your headache

      Delete
    8. OK...thanks. Just so it's not falling off the screen. :) I did have to make the sidebar more narrow.

      Delete
    9. yes so we can see your sidebar more close

  2. Very nice, That's a great photo. and here I was thinking everyone would be doing X-rays and Xylophones lol. I like the x as a symbol, typically as the Cross, which is very interesting here, as the lines in the photo are in the sky, so it's much closer to Heaven than everyone on Earth is, so perhaps a little love was sent to you indeed. Thanks

    1. yeah, I'm sure there will be a lot of those...X was a little more difficult! I almost did the roman numeral 10. Like your thoughts here about the x being close to heaven and some love sent my way. What a beautiful picture your words painted...and great with my photo! :)

  4. You need to narrow up your blog width....half of it is off the page...
    but.....on the other hand...your photo is beautiful...love sky-watching...imagining the clouds are shapes of things...I did a post on clouds early in the year...I get a lot of nice shots at the cottage...
    Hope you enjoyed your day...

    Cheers!
    Linda :o)

  8. Wow that must mean there is treasure at your sea
    Find it and share with glee
    Employee all the cats to dig a big hole
    I'm sure they'll get on a roll
    And find it in no time
    Then we can use the empty chest to stuff in a mime
    Bury it back up
    And you can buy a golden coffee cup

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. lol...are you drinking whatever I was drinking last night?

      yes, you know I'd share with you
      if a pot of gold ever came due.
      Maybe you could get yourself out of the stone surround
      and buy yourself some forest ground.
      I bet the cats could dig to china
      if they thought some catnip I was hiding.
      lol.
      Buy a golden cup, I can
      and you would buy a golden Pringles can.

      Delete
    2. haha no poo would go in that one
      For the cat wouldn't touch the gold that was spun
      Yeah I think I am indeed
      Or just inhaling the fumes from 14 cats at the other feed..haha
      They probably wouldn't know what to do
      If the outside came into view
      Orlin jumps ten feet into the air
      At each sound in our lair
      Prob have a heart attack out there
      Still the stone being rare
      Would be nice
      So tell the cats to forget the mice
      And start digging away
      Even call some local mutts to your bay
      And they will find it soon
      By tomorrow at noon

      Delete
    3. are you on vacation again?
      That's got to be some kind of sin.

      I'll report back at noon
      you silly loon.
      I'll tell them to dig for Pat,
      Orlin and Cass.
      They need a change in scenery
      as bush #3 is loosing it's greenery.

      Delete
    4. Just a day of vacation at my sea
      And it is the first used this year by me
      Have to save a few
      For my US view..haha

      Okay I expect big things
      From your wings
      Like the treasue from that Nic Cage movie
      That would be really groovie
      As it is worth billions if not more
      Could truly buy your own shore

      Delete
    5. Yep, and you better save your pennies
      so you can tip the mimes in the city.
      lol...oh, yes, it had to be said.

      a treasure that big?
      oh, maybe I better help dig!
      lol.
      tell nanny and the felines hello
      hope the dog doesn't bellow.
      Keep Orlin away from his tail
      or his yelps will surely set sail!

      Delete
    6. Tipping mimes will never come due
      That blabber can do
      They better stay from my view
      Or I may step on the toes of a few..haha
      Yes dig away
      At your bay
      The sky
      Does not lie
      Orlin has yet to bother with him
      But he has made the life of a few cats grim..haha

  11. the x was marking the spot above you where the angel on the bottom right side was to come to watch over you :) takes a bit of imagination (mine is active and vivid, ha) it's robe goes down over the trees, the sun it's body and the rest is up to your imagination. :)

    2. I really do! See, you aren't so crazy! Or maybe I'm just crazy, too! lol...

    3. 'crazy' is more fun than normal. keeps things interesting. lol - many times I've grabbed the camera and rushed outside to take pics of the sky. the kids never say anyhting, but maybe they wonder at times. ha - my sister took a photo of one above her house several years ago that was plainly visible!

    1. I love contrails, a lot of people think they're pollution but they're just water vapor! It's awesome how that method of transportation can create such beautiful sky patterns and textures.

      Delete
    2. Oh, I do, too! Sometimes if they stay in the sky a good while there can be lots of them to make a really neat pattern. If the sun sets and they turn pink, then it's even better! ha.

  23. I hadn't thought about making a wish when I see them in the sky. I do love to see them all sharp and crisp at first, then fading to pretty puffy dots.

    Got me. I also enjoy watching clouds and seeing the designs they make. :-)
