Scavenger hunt Sunday ......



yep, it's that time again.
I originally looked at this week's prompts and thought "huh?" - "never going to happen!"

why?
well 1) the words would require me to stop and give it some thought, and 2) because I was going to be so busy getting stuff done around the house that had been put on hold until The Girl returned to college, that I couldn't possibly have time to take pictures, let alone address issue #1. I was convinced that I was going to get so much done around that house that it would impress the britches off the guys and they would return home in complete awe and astonishment - eager to wait on me hand & foot. (a girl can dream)

50 gazillion loads of laundry later, (trick basket, never empties), and that plan went to heck in a laundry basket and frankly I got precious little marked off the To Do list. So, despite my original pessimism of these words, I did manage to find something that I think will sufficiently cover the challenge.

and there you have it.
I had to stretch the final one a little because as The Boy pointed out, Ike is not smiling. But that cat does make me smile, especially when he plods around the house with me hunting for things to photograph.

  1. Love your collection! The perspective on the cat is nice and it's a very pretty shot. You did a great job with the prompts. Even when they seem hard at the beginning, it seems it always comes together in the end! By the way, I like how you don't use a lot of capital letters. They kind of bug me and I wish they didn't exist. Why do we need them anyway?!
