Some of my 365 day Photo's

I am finally getting around to posting some of my photos..
I have been in some kinda weird funk lately.
Can't seem to get motivated to do a whole lot of anything.

Day #147
I have been doing my daily photo's..  But they have just been sitting in my camera..
Till today!  I was trying to play around with white on white..
  This is a white coffee mug against a white sheer curtain..

Day #148 
This is a shot I took to put on my other blog.. I had been doing a little decoupaging
that day and kinda liked the way this photo turned out.. So I kept it for my 365 photo.

Day #149 
A close up of my cute little kitty..  I added this shot in to a flikr pool that Justine had
started.. The Theme for January is Partially seen.  You can check it out Here.

Day #150 
Most of the plants in my yard are looking a little weathered.. Just like this.
Can't wait for spring.

Day #151 
Yep, This one is also in my backyard.. It is growing like a weed.
It is an aloe vera.

Day #152 
This is one of my favorite bracelets..  I wear it all the time..

Thanks so much for stopping by and visiting..

Hugs, Linda

Scavenger Hunt Sunday!

I hope everyone is enjoying their weekend so far!
It has been nice and relaxing for me!

I am playing in Ashley's Scavenger Hunt again this week.
The word prompts this week were a lot of fun!
Most but not all of these photos are from a short little trip
The Hubby and I, (and our kitty's) took to
Calico Ghost Town.

The word prompts for this week are:

Memories,  Silhouette,  Doorway(s)  Reflections,  Silver 

Memories - Day #142
My parents used to bring us here when I was a kid.  I remember
Panning for Gold..  And watch the Cowboys have a good old fashion gunfight right on the street.
I was a little disappointed that they didn't have a gunfight this time.. Maybe all the cowboys
 were off for the winter! 

The color of the sky was so beautiful lighting up the desert sky!


Look,  back then they had his and hers Outhouses..
Just watch out for those rattlesnakes.

Here are some more doorways from the old west!

This was a glass door to a saddle shop.. I wish I would have taken
my jacket off before I took the shot..  This shot is straight out of the camera.
Just a little cropping that's it!

Another refection shot.. This one was taken not in Calico but a little dinner
that is on the other side of the highway..  Yep they lure you in by saying they
have dinosaurs park at there diner..  I know it does sound a little crazy!

Silver - Day #143
I have a little collection of Salt and Pepper shakers that I have been
collecting since I was about 7 years old..  I just added these Silver S&P shakers
to my collection about 8 years ago..  I found them at an antique shop while we were
on vacation.

That's all I have for this week..  To see the other entries you can go to
Ashley's blog - Ramblings and Photos..

Thank you Ashley.. I really do enjoy playing along!

Hugs, Linda

Some of my 365 day Photo's

I am finally getting around to getting some of my photo's
edited and posted..  This week has just flown by and kinda got
away from me.  These are my daily 365 photo's.  I do have some
photo's to share from my trip to Calico Ghost town.. But I am still editing
those..  I will have some of them up for Ashley's Scavenger Hunt.

Day #140

Words we should all live by!

Day #141

This photo was taken pretty early in the morning in Calico!
I just love trying to get photo's of Birds.

Day #144

At the beginning of the week here in Vegas it was pretty warm!
That always makes me want to work out in the yard..  I Planted some
of these pretty Pansy's. They always bring a little color to my yard.
I buy a whole flat of them every year..

Day #145

Another one of my last minute shot..  It was late and I had just realized that
I didn't get my shot in for the day..  Time to get creative..  And they taste pretty good also!

Day #146
Well I got this idea from Rosie's Blog..   She had taken a beautiful photo
of some Basil..  And then had asked us what our favorite herb was.
Well one of mine is Rosemary..  I love the way it smells.
And here in the desert it grows like a weed..

Thanks for the inspiration Rosie!

Thanks so much for stopping by.
I should be back in just a few days for Ashley's Scavenger Hunt!

Hugs, Linda

Scavenger Hunt Sunday!

Hello Dear Friends..  As you are reading this I am out of
Town.  We pulled our trailer out west to a little Ghost Town called Calico!
Can't wait to share some photo's when we get back.

So I have pre-scheduled this post.. Not for sure I will get Internet.
 You know I didn't want to miss out on
Ashley's Scavenger Hunt..   The words for this week are:

A Different View, Looking Up, Abstract, Hair and Half.

So here is how I interpreted this week words..

A Different View

After I have had a few of these.... I see the world in a Whole Different View!

Looking UP!
This is a photo of a Shower We have out side next to our pool!
Our Shower Flower.. I think it is so cute! And it really does work!

Day #139
Here Is another shot I got for looking up.  I am standing right next to
a palm tree in our front yard.. Looking up at it's beautiful frowns..

Abstract - Day #137

I love the way this looks..  It's just one of my Sea Shells
But doesn't it look like a something from space!

Hair - Day #138
This is another shot of my Kitty..  I am constantly cleaning "HAIR" off just
about everything..  She is so worth it!

So all I asked if I could just get one serious shot to put on my
blog and this is all I could get..  Hee Hee.
So here he is...  My Hubby....  
My better HALF.

To get a look at all the other entries you can
stop by HERE to take a look!

Thanks Ashley for another great week!

I am so glad you stopped by.
I hope you enjoyed your stay!

Just some Random Shots...

Hey there...
Just thought I would share some random shots I took
recently.  Change them into B&W so I could join in the fun over at 
This shot is of a pretty Yellow daisy..  Got it from my neighbor’s yard.
My hubby hates when I get shot from over there!
  I don't know why, just because I am laying on the ground in my neighbor’s yard is nothing to be embarrassed about...

I am so surprised she sat a posed for me.. I always have such a tough time getting a photo of her!

You can see all the other over here!

Thank You Lisa!

Thank for popping in!  Hope you enjoyed your stay!
Hugs, Linda

A Sunday Morning Stroll..

The Hubby and I took a little stroll on Sunday morning. We walk to a park not far
from our house. Usually I don't take my camera along when we take our
walks cause we would get no exercise.. I would have to stop every 5 min.
to take a photo..
Well I took my camera this time and like I said we got no exercise.
But it was a Beautiful day for a nice Sunday stroll..

So these shots to follow our from our walk!

Day #135

I can't believe this guy stopped barking long enough for me to
take his picture..

This is a photo of a some type of sage plant. You could
tell by the wonderful scent it had!

Now this plant is such a famous one that is here in the desert.
The Oleander.. I have never seen these little pods before.
I just love the way they looked in the morning light!

I  thought this looked so cool, I just had to get a shot of it..
I have no idea what it is!

A dried up rose. Still so pretty to me!

Some little birdies enjoying the beautiful morning!

This sign just cracked me up.. I had to get a shot of it!

Day #136
 This shot was taken this morning in my Backyard.. It is a little ivy plant I have
and I really can't believe it is still alive..

That's all I have for now..  Thanks for stopping by!

Hugs, Linda

Scavenger Hunt Sunday!

Happy Sunday everyone.. I am back today to play in
Ashley's Scavenger Hunt.

The word prompts this week are:

This is Me.

So here we go!

This is Me!  -  Day #134
Anyone who knows me at all knows that I spend most of my time in
my Jeans and sweatshirt with an old pair of my favorite converse..
Unless it is in the middle of summer of course.

I really am not one to make Resolutions..  I like to try to live each day
in the moment..  Sometimes that is so hard to do.. When I get discouraged
I like to think of  this Bible verse.. It is one of my favorites..
Psalm 118:24

Treasured - Day #130 
My Mom gave this hair clip to me not so long ago.. I will always treasure it!

Innocence - Day #133
Yep,  Here I thought she was so sweet and innocent until I realised she
ate the last cupcake..

(this is one of the sweet gals from my work, Kalie)

So I cheated a little..  But I think he has some long lost cousins who can
qualify for this prompt!  Right!

Thanks for popping by and taking a look!
You can see all the other entries over at

I enjoyed playing along this week!

Hugs, Linda

Some of my 365 day Photo's

Hi there, I had a little extra time this evening so I
thought I would post some more of my daily photos..

Tomorrow is back to work for me.. I have had the last 3 weeks
off and have been pretty busy most of the time..  But my House is all back in order
 and it is time to get back to my everyday routine...
 Life is good!

So here are some of the photo's I took the last few days..

Day #124
This is a old pepsi  bottle crate that I have in my craft room..
I just love the way it looks and how I can store crafty things in it! 

Day #125
This is a clock we have in our family room.
As you can tell I am running out of things to take photos
of in our house.

Day #126 
These are some fun little goodies my girl friend Becca made for me.
Yep, I put that little bottle in my crate that you saw above.. Looks so cool!
Thanks so much Bec!

Day #127 

I was out of town on New Years Day..
 We were in Pahrump, NV..  I stopped in to visit
an old friend and she just got herself a couple of these cuties.  She stated that they helped
her with the yard work..  There was not a weed to be found..

Here is the view from the yard of my girlfriends house in Pahrump..  Beautiful!

Day #128 
My daughter came over today and we hung out most of the
afternoon..  She is going to have a baby in about 3 1/2 months. YEA!
I can't wait to be a grandma.. We spent the day chatting about how she
is going to decorate his room.. Yep she is having a boy!

Here is a shot of her baby bump, she is really starting to show now!

Thanks so much for stopping by..
I appreciate all your sweet comments.

Hugs, Linda
