The fragrant new life was obvious and pink…


Notice how I managed to make a sentence out of the prompts for The Sunday Scavenger Hunt this week?  Okay, so it doesn’t make sense but what the heck?! 

Anyhow, here’s what I came up with:

We stopped at D’Angelo’s last week for lunch while we were running some errands.  If you aren’t familiar with the chain D’Angelo’s, they serve pocket sandwiches, grinders and such that are made to order when you order them.  It’s good, fast food.  This is the first restaurant I’ve ever been in though that used a Keurig to make the coffee.  I’m not a fan of the Keurig because I hate to think of all those little plastic things being thrown into landfills, but it does make a bit of sense in a place like this that doesn’t serve all that much coffee.  It beats having the coffee sit on a burner for hours on end and then being thrown out.  So this was something NEW to me and I enjoyed my NEW cup of coffee.  Wish they didn’t use foam cups though.


Also at D’Angelo’s, Greg got a soft drink of some sort and they gave him a pretty interesting cup.  What it says on the cup is what I hope you all get out of LIFE…a little something special, satisfaction, a fair chance and some ice cold refreshment when you need it.  After all, isn't that what we all want?  


My first thought on the prompt FRAGRANT was the scent of some kind of spring flower, but I have to admit that more than that I enjoy the smell of garlic cooking.  So that’s what I decided on for FRAGRANT.
  A gift from the gods…garlic.


But not being able to leave the flower thing behind, here’s what I came up with for PINK.


You may not be able to see it in this picture, but it is OBVIOUS to me that my daughter Carrie wishes I would put away my camera.  She was too polite to say so but I knew what she was thinking.


Hooking up to Scavenger Hunt Sunday.

Woof, I think Carrie likes being photographed much like me! And yes, you deserve all that the cup said. And yes this week's SHS sounds like one hunt. Somebody almost did that with her baby who is new, is life, is pink, is fragrant, and obviously a work of love. Keeper said that not me ;-)

Happy Something!

great hunt. the garlic is really pretty to and fits the smelly thing, and that is a wild cup.

Well done - on making a sentence and interpreting the words. I too love the smell of cooking garlic - add a little onion and I'm drooling at the mouth. Your daughter is quite lovely. I must confess that with my daughter, it is not only obvious, but blatantly so that she detests having her picture taken as evident of her many 'errr' expressions. You at least got the semblance of a smile.

Great interpretation for fragrant - love that lighting.
