Mexican Hat Dance

Mexican Hats, July 2010 roadtrip

So this week’s prompt from Photo Friday is RED.  Hope you enjoy these Mexican Hats!

I know I’ve posted this photo before but it’s the first thing I thought of, plus I was daydreaming of a road trip from which this was taken.  Oh, I long to be on the road, traveling as far as our vehicle will take us.  Some prefer to fly but I prefer to see everything up close and personal every stretch of the way to wherever I’m going.  You never know what little flea market, (fruit stand, hole in the wall restaurant with the best food eva, little out of the way store full of little treasures…) you might find on your adventure.  And the scenery is always lovely.  Well, depending on what route you take or where you’re off to.  Usually, there’s always eye candy to be found on every road trip.

For those of you who celebrate Independence Day, have a Happy 4th of July!!


Will You Accept These Flowers?


Okay, so they’re not a bouquet but I still present you with flowers.  This was taken in April when the blackberry brambles were blossoming beside the garden.  Now, in June, they are poppin’ with juicy delicious blackberries!  Speaking of berries, the girls and I went blueberry picking at a local farm a week ago and I snapped some pics.  Perhaps I’ll post when there’s a “Berries” theme, or heck, perhaps I’ll post next week anyway.

Hope you like the flowers.  Y’all have an inspired Friday!  Yay — FRIDAY!!!  😉

If y’all want to participate in Photo Friday, this week’s theme is … wait for it … Flowers.

Snow White

Photo Friday challenge:  Weather

Okay, that’s it.  I must start work now.  😉


WinterIs a third one too many for the challenge?  If you zoom in, you can find a cardinal perched right there in the middle.  😉  “Winter” with a spot of red.

Frosted Fingers

frosted fingers 02/12/2010 I realize it’s been a while since I participated in a photo challenge but felt it was high time I get back in the show. Some of you will remember this one before but others may not have seen it and feel it’s a good one for this week’s challenge of “Weather.”

This was taken in my back yard in 2012.  Hope you like it.  You may know I have a thing for trees.  I also have a thing for snow.  Absolutely LOVES it!  😉  At 25 degrees this cold winter morning, it feels like a nice chance for snow.  Just walked Buddy and the lawn met us with a blanket of ice crystals.  Lovely in the moonlight.

Photo Friday: Evening

Looking through Girl Scout photos from years past, I came across this one of Hallie at a Girl Scout Halloween Party (2007) where the girls were taking turns telling ghost stories.  She’s being silly, as usual.  Just looking at it makes me laugh.  She’s such a nut.  Although, lately, she’s just been downright testy.  Comes with being 13, I guess.  Ugh!

Oh well, there are good days and there are bad days.  As with anything and everything, I suppose.

Y’all have a most auspicious Tuesday.  And just a warning, some days in November may only be a photo for my blog, as I’m trying to do this NaNoWriMo thingy, so I have to type over 1,800 words per day.  I did 1,898 yesterday, which is great, but I’m behind today, so I’ll be playing catch up tomorrow.  Good luck with all you do!  And if you are participating in NaNoWriMo, let me know about it.  I know you are, Gerry, and I will be sending you a note tomorrow.  Good luck!  I know, as you have won in the past, you are doing an awesome job!  Love you guys!  *smooch*
