Time for a Break

During these hot days of summer...and the continuing pandemic & civil unrest & election news, I've decided it's time for a little break. 

I'll still be hanging out here at home, reading good books, enjoying the sunshine, scrapbooking our memories, trying new recipes, styling the mantel, and spending lots of time in my craft room! Please touch base via email if you'd like to connect while I'm "away."

SPSH 2020 | Driving Around

Last month I was beginning to feel a little cooped up, so we decided to take a Sunday drive to get out of the house on a hot sunny day. With the increasing number of coronavirus cases here in Texas, we really had no desire to go anywhere specific. We made two quick stops - one at Lowes for Robbie to pick up two items he needed for a home project and another at my parents' home to return the tree lopper we'd borrowed to trim the trees in the front yard.

For FUN along the drive, we searched for the items on Mary-Lou's Summer Photo Scavenger Hunt list. Robbie took most of the photos from the moving vehicle while I drove, so some of them are a little blurred ... but we had a great time.

1. A favorite piece of jewelry
2. Something with or in a knot
3. Something with the colors of your country’s flag
4. A toy you play with
5. Something you have more than one of

6. Something in the shape of a triangle

7. Something that displays a rule(s) 
8. A leaf longer than your hand 

9. Something that starts with the initial of your name (first or last) - M for Mama

10. Something smaller than a paper clip - specks of dust on the hood of my car
11. Something you need to throw away 

12. Something that holds your favorite beverage 

13. A rubber band/elastic in use 

14. Something with wheels 

15. Something inherited - blue eyes from Daddy
16. Something with rough texture 
17. Something naturally round 
18. Something that can go in the water 
19. A stone/rock/pebble with some color in it 
20. Something with the number 7 in it 
Alt A. An animal statue 
Alt B. Something heavier than your shoe 
Alt C. Something with four sides
Hope you enjoyed our FUN drive! Now I'm off to see which items others have found for this year's hunt!
