Daily Prompt: Bookworms

Pondering“… that’s my word for today’s Daily Prompt: Bookworms

We were tasked to grab the nearest book. Open it and go to the tenth word. Do a Google Image Search of the word. Write about what the image brings to mind. Well my nearest book to my desk is titled “Interest of Justice” by Nancy Taylor Rosenberg. On the first page, the first line reads as follows:

“Judge Lara Sanderstone had a ritual. When she was pondering a complex legal matter…”

This was the image that jumped out at me when I searched ‘pondering’. It also portrays quite nicely the dictionary blurb; “To reflect or consider with thoroughness and care”.

Not very exciting perhaps, but for me this brings back memories of about 18 months ago, a time when I was constructing the roof on my garage/workshop – bar far the biggest welding/construction project I had tackled. In order to maximise the best usage of the area, the garage was built into a corner of our land which was by no means a 90 degree right angle. What we ended up with is a square-looking building from the frontal perspective, but the rear wall is 1.1m wider than the front, and the right wall is 1.3m longer than the left!

Whilst it looks absolutely fine, and certainly made best use of the plot, it didn’t half give me some nightmares, least of all building the roof. I don’t know how many hours I spent ‘pondering’ the best way to do this bit or tackle that bit!

Ok, so this isn’t very poetic or even artistic… so I may be barred from future Daily Prompts, who knows; but it’s reality for a blogging farmer who also loves books. A word conjures up real life events rather than poetry, that’s all 🙂
