Scavenger Hunt Sunday…

I’ve managed to keep up with my 365 on Flickr, but I have fallen behind here.  No worries.  I got stuff together for this week’s Scavenger Hunt.

  Here are the prompts:  Relaxing, Inspiring Person, Written Word, Memories, and Best Friend.

Here’s what I’ve got:

I find it very RELAXING to meditate.  Buddha reminds me of meditation.  Buddha is relaxing.


For some reason, I have been thinking a lot about Kurt Vonnegut lately.  I have a real urge to get out my copy of Cat’s Cradle, my favorite Vonnegut book, and reread it.  I think that he is an INSPIRING PERSON so I am using a quote of his today.


I keep a travel diary when we go on trips.  Often, when we get home and I look through what I’ve written, I am amazed that I can’t make heads or tails of it.  My handwriting is pretty bad.  But now and then I get some insight from my WRITTEN WORD.


We made new MEMORIES this week when we went out to Northampton, Massachusetts to celebrate my daughter Carrie’s 29th birthday.  Here’s a photo of Carrie and my son Evan from that day.


Who says that dogs are just a man’s BEST FRIEND?  I would argue that many women have canine best friends, too.  This is mine.  Olive the pug doesn’t like to get her picture taken but she cooperated with me this morning even though at 8:30 when we were out taking a walk, it was already 80 degrees out and miserable.  I love this jolly, little pooch!

I love Olive's face. I wouldn't go outdoors to pee in that heat either.

Poor Olive - she looks like she is saying "please, could you just get it over with?" Lovely shot of your children and mediation, I would imagine, is quite relaxing. As for the whole writing thing - I have found that the older I get the worse my writing gets - possibly because more stuff is typed these days and the art of cursive is fading.

Olive is a real sweetheart! Great photo of your son and daughter.

Oh I could just squeeze Olive...she is such a cutie. Wonderful picture of your daughter and son. You handwritting statement made me giggle...I sometimes take notes and then when I re-read I can't understand a thing I have said.

Nice choices for the prompts.
Relaxing - This Buddha is a nice looking one but those one with the big fat belly and sort of sneering smile just don't do a thing for me.

I adore your little Olive, you know us with our Cricket so a Pug lover just relates to another pug lover. They are hard to get good pictures of.

Love that you do a travel journal. I've never been the journaling type. I guess blogging is my way of journaling.
