I am back..

Day #61

Here is a shot of a flower from my front yard..
I snapped this right before we took off on our trip.
I did tell you I was away..  I am in Zion National Park..
So pretty here..

Day #62

I got this shot from right here in our campground.
There were a couple of these bee's and they were pretty busy.
I just love the way his wings were so flat and straight.

Day #63

This is my favorite time of year to come up here.
The leaves are all changing.. We don't really see much of that
in the Vegas.  See the waterfall in the background..

Day #64

This guy was so friendly..  He was just was just
begging to get his picture taken..

I will post some more picture of my trip from Zion when
I get home.

Hugs, Linda

A Bit Behind....

I have been a bit busy lately, but I have keep up on my
photos..   Just now getting around to posting some of them.

Day #55
I had gotten this old Lysol bottle a couple at least
a year ago and a antique shop.  It sits on my window
sill with all my other bottles.

 Day #56
I only got a couple of shots this day not real
happy with this one but it's much better than my other

Day #57
Here is another shot of one of my bottles that
 sits in my kitchen window sill.

Day #58
Yes it's that time of year again.  These Halloween photo's
are the only picture's I took this day.  It is my daughter
and her husband and friends, getting ready for a zombie walk.
They look so real to me..  SCARY

Day #59
Yep, It's another bottle from my kitchen window
sill.  I just love taking pictures of them..  I am
sure you will see more of these in the future.

Day #60
This shot is of some stamps I have in my craft room.

I still have a couple of shot to post before I am caught up.
Busy. Busy.

Thanks for coming by and visiting.

Scavenger Hunt Sunday!

I am going to join in again in this weeks Scavenger Hunt.
I did pull a couple of shots from my archives.  And I must admit
some of the Word Prompts were challenging,
But who doesn't love a good challenge.

So here we go...

The Five Senses
This one was tough for me..  I took this shot while camping at the ocean last summer.
Nothing gets all your senses going like a shrimp boil at the ocean.

It looks and taste wonderful.  Just hearing the ocean in the back ground and
breathing in all the aromas of the salt water and the food.
Then just digging in with your hand to eat this wonderful meal..

Child/Children - Day 53

I was going to take a photo of my child but she is 23 years old.
So instead I took my camera to work.  (Preschool Teacher)
I got some shots of them during our play time.  Of course I couldn't
use their cute little faces..

Not one of my favorite shots, I always think of “Dining” as
going out.  My Hubby freaks if I try to take my camera out to dinner
with us..  So here is a shot of us dinning at home..  Tacos for Dinner..

The moon was so big and bright I had to use this shot..

These pelican's flew right into my sky shot.

Thanks so much for stopping by and checking out my
photo's.. I always have fun playing in this Scavenger Hunt.

Day #52

 This photo was taken our last day in Mexico.
I didn't get to many shots that day because we left for
our long drive home.
I kinda like the way it turned out.

Below are some more random shots..

It was fun to see how many people used all
different types of statues in this community in Mexico.

Here is another one, I just loved the way she looked.

I must have taken at least 15 shots of these guys
trying to get a decent shot.  They looked so cool in person..

Day #54
I am not really happy with this shot. I tried to play
around with it but I think there was no help for this shot..

My Trip To Mexico..

For my Birthday last week a group of us went to Mexico and stayed at
a friend's house..  We had a great time. It was overcast most of the time, which
I really enjoyed. 

So here are some shots I got. These are for

Days #49 thru #52

In the little gated community where we stayed, most of the houses had
these cool little wooden doors.  That is where there power meters were.

I just love the way the water would collect on these leaves..

Our host took me all the way down the block to show me this beautiful
cactus. The bloom on it was so pretty.  It almost didn't look real.

These door handles and latches looked so old and rusty to me. Very Cool!

I snaped this shot out the car window on our way to Ensenada.
 The ocean looked so cold and peaceful on this day.

Of course I had to get a shot of this boat.
The name says it all!

It is amazing how bad these guys smell, when they look so cute.

The little town we stayed in
Bajamar, Mexico

I had a great time and these are just a few of my shots
I am sure you will see more in the upcoming weeks.

Thanks for stopping by!

Day #48
It is so hard to get a shot of these little guys. I tried to sneak up on
them to get a shot.. This is the best one I could get.

Day #47
I have been so busy.   I snapped this shot in a hurry first thing
in the morning. I knew I would be pretty busy the rest
of the day!  Not the best shot, But it not bad for the rush I
was in..  I got this shot of a dried up leaf on the wall in my backyard.

Day #46
Well I had a Birthday this week and I got some of my
favorite flowers..

Day #45
I just love the way this potpourri looks.

Day #44
Here is another kitty picture.. I am sure you will see lots
of these types of pictures on this little journey of 365 days.

Scavenger Hunt Sunday!

Here we are again Sunday already.
 Time for a Scavenger Hunt..

This week was a little tough for me.  Not many fall
colors here in the desert..  But I really did enjoy the challenge.

Photos to hunt this week were

Fall Colors

So here we go...

 Pink - Day #40
As you can tell I played around with this photo in Picnik.
I may have gone a little to far with it..

Books - Day #43
I just love this little monkey that sits on my books.

Fall Colors
This is all I could come up with for fall colors.  I could have also been my Orange photo..

 So Here is a good example of  how the heat here in the
desert can burn some of the leaves here..  I know it should
have been just one leaf..  Sorry..

Orange - Day #41
I just love these Halloween decorations..  They just make me smile every year when I pull them out...

So if you want to play along or just go check out some of
the other entries head on over to Ashley's Blog.

Thank you Ashley for another fun week of great prompts.

Thank you so much for stopping by.

Scavenger Hunt Sunday...

I hope everyone is having a nice a relaxing Sunday..
I am so glad I got to play along this week in
Ashley's Scavenger Hunt..

I just love all the promps she comes up with..

So this is what I came with for this week.

1. Golden
I snapped this shot few months ago.. I did take a few shots for
this weeks prompt, but they just didn't work out.
So I had to pull out my back up shot.

 2. Smell
My hubby just loves smoking these smelly things...

3. Fruit - Day #35

4. Simple
I took this photo while on a walk to the park.
It is not what I had in mind at all for my simple shot..

This is what I had in mind..
I could not believe it when I went to have a cup of tea
the other day and this is what it said...  How perfect is that..
Now if I could only live by those words..

5. Sport - Day #34
One of my favorite sports to Watch and Play...

So if you want to play along or just check out
all the other wonderful photo go check out
