Scavenger Hunt Sunday…


I managed to get my camera out this week and use it.  So I have entries for each of the Scavenger Hunt prompts:  forest, morning light, touch, newspaper and coffee or tea.  And here they are.

We live in a very forested area.  Most of the back roads around here look pretty much like this:



I don’t generally get up early, but I did one day this week.



I have an iPod Touch.  I am not altogether happy with it because I really liked my old Nano better and if it hadn’t stopped working, I would have been happy to keep it for another few years if not forever.  Here are my problems with the Touch.  It is too sensitive.  I listen to books all the time and one false move and I have lost my place.  I don’t know how many times I’ve had to listen to a chapter over because I accidentally touched something.  I also don’t like that it is so small.  When it falls to the bottom of my purse, I have a panic attack.  Not just because I am afraid I lost it but because I’m afraid it’s going to be touched and I will lose my place.  Okay, rant over.  On the bright side, I listen to books all the time and this baby has all my music and a number of books on it with room to spare.  That’s sweet!

OK!  I have been corrected by my husband Greg (aka Mr. Know-it-all).  I do not own an iPod Touch.  I own a Nano.  I thought it was an iPod Touch because you have to touch it to get it to do anything and you also have to touch it to mess it up.  I thought "Touch" was an accurate description for it so the name seemed appropriate.     I guess you can tell I'm not an Apple lover. 


I read the newspaper nearly every morning of my life.  Here’s some of the things I read this week.


Coffee.  It has to be coffee, preferably strong, black, organic and fair trade, but it has to be coffee!

The forest looks nearly as the one I had back home ... love the newspaper headlines, thank you for the inspiration. Please have you all a good new week.

Beautiful series!

Outstanding set of pictures. I have a similar problem with my iPhone and listening to music, one false move and it's on to a different song. I like how you collage the newspapers.

What a terrific group you have this week. Lovely, lovely place where you live, beautiful shot. I love your newspaper collage, so creative and I do love it that you put the comics smack dab in the middle!! Add cream and a little sweet to that coffee and I am with you.

Love this collection, Barb -- I know nothing about iPods, iPads, etc..., so your description is fine with me. :)

Great shots for the hunt, Barbara! Love the first one! That's my kind of place! I'm up on my tech stuff, but I wouldn't think anything of it if you called it the wrong name. The Apple fanboys might be offended, though. :-)
