This is the first time I have entered the wordpress photo challenge. I see it as a simple way to get back to my blog, whilst at the same time bringing a little order to it. So this week’s challenge is rather apt.

I have mentioned before that I love a game called Bananagrams. In it, one creates a crossword that brings order out of the chaos of jumbled letter tiles. I usually play on our outside verandah but, occasionally, when it is much too cold to go out, I clear a section of the dining room table and play on the tablecloth.

Here are a couple of completed Bananagrams, one I did outside and one inside. Because of the design on the tablecloth, I think that one brings more a sense of order than the other, but I love the grain on the wooden table.

Bananagrams allow me to bring some order into my life when it feels like things are out of control. They make a great way to relax.

  1. Can others see the 2 photos that are with this blog? I can’t!

    • I sure can Linda and they are a great interpretation of this week’s theme. Very ordered and great words too. Have to get online to source a game, being so portable it will be a nice addition to our camping games.

  2. Hi Linda, The photo slots come up blank for me.

  3. Hi Linda. Unfortunately I can’t see the photos either. I love word games, too, although I have never played Bananagrams. It sounds fun!

  4. Hi Linda – good to have you back! You’ll have heard this before: yep, no pictures, just blank grey frames. As a lover of all kinds of puzzles, I am now hooked, Bananagrams – a must discover!

    • Thanks Frederick. See my comment below re not seeing the photos.
      It is nice to be back & I hope to keep going, at least on posting photos – as long as people can see them!
      Bananagrams are great! 🙂

  5. I cannot understand why overseas viewers can’t see the photos. I posted them just as I always have. It is a puzzle! Unless it is because you are using a tablet or phone?

    • I am on my desk top computer and I also can’t see your photographs. However in my reader list of followed blogs I can see one of the picture, but when I open to read your blog just two blanks. Must be something with wordpress.

  6. I can’t see your pics via your blog but they came up in my RSS feed.

  7. I have deleted the photos, then re-entered them into the blog and reposted it, but the photos still don’t show up. If photos don’t show up on my next post, I will ask for help from wordpress.

  8. One of my favorite games too. I love the freedom to go anywhere with it. And, of course, I love words. So lovely to see you easing back into blogging!
