Shades of White

This is Day 18 of the 2017 edition of the 20 Days of Chill writing challenge hosted by P. J. at A ‘lil HooHaa. Today's prompt is White. Please visit the other participants for more adventures.

Here we have hubby's new-to-him Odyssey, which he got last August after an unfortunate incident totaled his Accord. In the five months we've had the van, it has been to Blowing Rock, Shelby, Pennsylvania, Maryland, Florida and Myrtle Beach. Needless to say, we are pleased with our new travel car. He calls it his mom car, and I say it is his mid-life crisis fail.


The first snowfall of 2017. So beautiful and pristine, and so cold that day. Not a good day to drop by and discover there was no heat in the house. Fortunately it's not our primary residence (yet). Turns out there was no oil in the tank. Thankfully, we have a great oil company and they delivered within the hour. I was also thankful for an electric heater while we waited.




The last rose of summer. Such a pretty lady, so white against the green backdrop. I did tinker with it a bit to make her stand out.

  1. Hi Linda - she certainly stood out your white rose ... shades of white - I immediately think of "White Shade of Pale" - so these were delightfully white - the car sounds a good buy. No heating - I'd be very white! and that snow ... lovely now - shortly greying sludgy melt - cheers and enjoy the white entries ... Hilary

    1. That snow hung around for about 4 days then melted off with the rain. The van has been wonderful. My car is an SUV which had been the trip car, but the van holds more stuff.

  3. I love the mom car... that is awesome! I had a white minivan for many years. It was so hard to keep clean but I loved it.

    The rose is beautiful!

    1. We love it, too. White wasn't our first choice, but he really needed to find something and this was a good deal.

  4. I just sold my Odyssey last April for a white Jeep. Loved that van, but with all the kids grown, it was time to move on, although I could have used it awhile longer. A wire shorted that controlled all of the seat belts on the passenger side. To replace it was almost the same price it was worth. Time to get a new car.

    1. It really works for us, as a trip car, you can haul stuff and it can seat 7, plus the price was right when we needed it. Some fixes are expensive. What year was your Odyssey?

  5. I love that you have a "travel car" - it's gone places alright! Where is the next trip to?

    1. We have always had a designated travel car. Usually mine because hubby commuted to work and needed a more economical car. Now we have his van and my SUV. As to where it's going next, nothing planned at the moment.

    1. Hi there, it seemed like my posts might get more attention if I linked them myself. Networked blogs just seemed like I was linking to someone else's post. Thanks for visiting!!!
