Every Inchie Monday: Schedule

This week's word at Every Inchie Monday is another of those interesting words with more than one way to pronounce it (like khaki).  I'm in the Sh-edule camp, as opposed to the sk-edule pronunciation.  (No inchie reason to bring this up - just my endless fascination with the English language.)

Once again, I couldn't decide which idea to use.  So there are two (only two!) this week.

Now that I am older, and luckily more financially able, I no longer have to rely on bus schedules.  But I spent many years riding the rails (our local bus company is called the Hamilton Street Railway). 

Our city buses are a rather ugly yellow and blue.  For a while they were yellow (gold) and black, which was neat because those are the colours of our city's Canadian Football team, the Hamilton Tiger Cats.  I don't know why they changed.  Yellow and blue are supposed to be the city's colours - they show up in the city logo, I think.  Here is my rather poor depiction:

But the second idea is more important to me.  I love baseball, and in particular I love the Toronto Blue Jays.  For the first time in over 20 years they are playing meaningful baseball in September.  At the point of writing, they still have a chance to make the second wild card playoff spot.  A small chance, admittedly, but a chance nevertheless.  So here is the September schedule of the remaining games the Jays have to play, until the end of the season.  If you know anything about baseball, you can see it isn't an easy schedule.  Go Jays.  Hope to be watching you for playoff baseball in October.  
home games in blue, away games in black
Have a great time this week.


  1. Love your innies! The bus timetable is mega cute and the baseball timetable is a serious document. Hold on to it and good luck with your team. Mine (in the Australian Rules Football) got the wooden spoon this year.

    1. What does getting the wooden spoon mean? Is it slang for didn't do so well, (and where does it come from) or is it an actual object?

    2. :) No, no, not just doing not so well. But coming bottom last, way bottom last. I am glad this season is over, shudder to think of the next one.

      Have a look here:

      There's a reference to how popular this expression is down under.

  2. 2 great interpretations of SHEDULE! Yep, I say it like that too :-)


  3. great interpretation of the theme. Such great detail.

  4. I love both of your interpretations of sKedule :)

  5. Fantastic inchies--both so well done

    Love Chrissie x

  6. Great job, Kia! Such tiny writing, for so much scheduled!! I thought of just writing the word, LIFE, because sometimes that's what it feels like. One big schedule! Great job!! Have a great weekend! :0)Share Humanity

  7. I like both inchies. I am hoping my team, KC Royals, can pull it off also (horrible loss last night).
