Last Days of Summer


I didn't have as much time to spend in the hammock this summer as maybe I would have liked, but the beauty of my last snooze-fest is undeniable!  Some might even call it Dreamy; this week's photo challenge topic! Check out these Dreamy photos from other bloggers: Dreamy: Landscape on the Horizon In Dreams... Weekly Photo … Continue reading Last Days of Summer

Humanity of Children


My picture for this week's photo challenge is of my grandchildren.  The first summer they were living with us they found a bird's nest on the ground in our yard.  There was one baby that seemed viable and the kids wanted to take care of it.  Since Grandpa had cared for other birds and small critters, we … Continue reading Humanity of Children

Summer Adventure: Photo Challenge


I am not adventurous by nature, so it was truly a challenge to think of photos for this week's Photo Challenge.  I like to know where I'm going, how I will get there, and what could happen when I arrive.  I over pack making sure I have contingencies covered.  My husband, however, likes getting in … Continue reading Summer Adventure: Photo Challenge

Into the Fray In the Garden


The photo challenge posted last Friday, Fray, make me think about your garden, again.  A picture from the beginning of the growing season shows the grapevines as they snaked their way along the garage.  The second shot shows full, lush leaves that crawl well beyond the frame holding them up now that several months have … Continue reading Into the Fray In the Garden

He Doesn’t Let Me Win, I Have to Beat Him Fair and Square


The past few weeks I've enjoyed the chance to post more than one picture for the Weekly Photo Challenge, this time is no different.  The Zig Zag idea got me thinking about Scrabble and how you can build the words by going back and forth over the board.  My husband and I might be a … Continue reading He Doesn’t Let Me Win, I Have to Beat Him Fair and Square

It could be your favorite novel, the light of the moon on your deck at night, the beach on a hot day, or that special you-know-who. Since my husband and I actually left town for a vacation earlier this week, I … Continue reading Summer Lovin’ Photo Challenge

LILBUGA


I was SO hoping to be able to use this picture for something when I took it.  I was coming off I-95 in Providence and this little pink bug was in front of me.  As I got closer I could see better what was in the window.  Clearly, she is a Hello Kitty fan...a BIG … Continue reading LILBUGA

Photo Challenge: Betweens


I took this one a few weeks ago.  I thought I was taking a bit of a short cut home but it turned out to be not so short.  It's on of the first things that popped into my head when I read the prompt for the Weekly Photo Challenge: ...capture something between two things, … Continue reading Photo Challenge: Betweens

Beyond the Smile (Weekly Photo Challenge-2)


This is one of my favorite pictures of Kash, our grandson, when he lived with us.  He was out for the day with Aunt Sue and Uncle Paulie, at the Crescent Park Carousel.  He had such a blast!  The little extra detail in this photo is the unhappy face on his t-shirt character; it was so … Continue reading Beyond the Smile (Weekly Photo Challenge-2)

A Little Something Extra (Weekly Photo Challenge)


A beautiful photo is one thing, but a photo with an unexpected detail has personality and pop. This week, share a photo that has a little something extra. No one who knows him would ever accuse my husband of being a party-pooper.  Quite the contrary. When I posted this picture on Facebook, a friend commented:  … Continue reading A Little Something Extra (Weekly Photo Challenge)
