PhotoHunt: Gather

A few years ago I vacationed in Naples, Florida. Spent the day shell seeking. Here's what I gathered. Yes, they are broken shells. I find these sometimes tell stories.....

PhotoHunt; Surprise

OK--here's the OTHER photohunt, and again apologies for being so late. These fingers have been knitting up a few last minute things and are a little sore to be typing. Here's my surprise photo. It's my neighbor's grandchild. I know i've used it before, but I love her childish expression of surprise! And, I just had to post the other picture -- my other neighbor. Isn't he a cutie?

PHotoHunt: Lights

How LATE am I? How about the neon lights of Times Square?

Seems like the past week has flown by just like the rest of this year. New Year's resolution: slow down and smell the petunias. Happy 2012 everyone! PS: New year's resolution #2: Be a better blogger.

PhotoHunt: Joy

I'm confused - I think there are two PhotoHunts going on so I'll join in both of them. This theme, Joy, is from Whistlestop's blog, who is taking over for Tnchick.

My photo is Venice's gondolas. I remember the first time I saw Venice. As I approached, I couldn't stop smiling as THIS was a place that looked exactly as every photo I had seen. Such JOY!.

PhotoHunt: Natural

Ah, Sedona. Brings to mind meditation, spirituality, and red rocks! Palakwapi, the Hopi word for "place in the red rocks," Sedona is sort of a gateaway to the Grand Canyon Park on one end. It's a place I intend to get back to next year.

This photo was taken in 2003 I think. Hard to believe almost 9 years ago. If you look closely you can see the empty beer bottle in the tree. Well, the scenery is a natural wonder anyway!

PhotoHunt; Christmas Decoration

Before I post my selections, i would like to "thank" everyone for not letting this fabulous, at times trying, exercise expire. Mahalo!

Now, I had a hard time finding just one photo, as Christmas is a very favorite season for me and a prelude to many family birthdays. Let the celebrations begin! I have posted a photo of my adopted (from my daughter) cat, Lilly, who loves Christmas almost as much as I: some vintage Christmas ball ornaments taken at Newburyport in an antique auction house, and a wreath that decorates my garden gate.

Enjoy your weekend!

I'm putting this link here for those of you not on Facebook. Some may recognize some of these 'characters' - furry ones too (Annie)!

Sorry, I've been a bad blogger lately. Hopefully my life will deccelerate soon!
