Diagramming Fun

Challenged by a grammarian to diagram a sentence, I gladly agreed.  Below is my rendition and this link is for my friend's ~

Let's you and me pray about it. (an imperative)

(You) let us (you and me) (to) pray about it.

(You) implied subject of let.

let is the main verb.

us is the direct object of the verb

you and me  compound direct object explaining *us*

(to) pray is an infinitive phrase acting like an adverb and modifying the verb let

about is an adverb modifying pray;  alternately, it could function as a preposition, but I prefer adverb since that enhances the way we pray ;-)

it is the direct object of pray

Fashion on Fridays:Radiant Orchid

Meet Pantone's 2014 Color of the Year!

She was introduced last Fall and I'm just now warming up to her.

In the spirit of my fashion posts,
that is,
searching the recesses of my closet and repurposing items already owned, I am on a roll.

It all started with this beautiful scarf given to me at Christmas by DD#2.

Then in the proverbial closet, I re-discovered a reversible vest (gray/orchid), a striped blouse (black/orchid), a statement sweater, and a navy dress with an orchid-colored yoke!

I didnt even think I liked this color.

What about you?
