Scavenger Hunt Sunday…

Here are this week’s prompts:  Watching, Leafy, First World Problem, Still and A Good Day.  And here’s what I came up with.

Olive the pug.  She’s always on the alert when she’s not asleep.  That's because she's kind of a little wimp.  Here’s she’s watching something that’s going on in the yard.  My guess is that she saw a leaf blow by and figured it was some kind of pug-getting monster.


Well, finding a shot for leafy is not a problem here right now as we are in the midst of fall.  I found this branch on the ground a couple weeks ago and decided that it is just as beautiful as a bunch of flowers.  It has been sitting on my kitchen sink since.  I love looking at it.


Now, here’s a First World Problem.  I have a love/hate relationship with my iPod.  I love that I can listen to books just about anywhere I am, but I hate that when I touch the darn thing while listening to a book, I often skip to the next chapter and then have to back up and listen to the chapter I was on all over again.  The touch screen is just too sensitive.  While this doesn’t happen all the time, it happens often enough that this iPod should feel ashamed of itself.  Also, while we’re on the subject, if I don’t get the darn thing securely clipped to something in my purse, it falls to the bottom of my bag and I panic thinking I lost it and won’t get to finish my book.  I just liked my first iPod a lot more and wish it hadn’t crapped out.


Here’s an autumn reflection in still water.


What started out as a bad day this week turned into a good day for taking pictures.  It’s a long story of me starting out to go somewhere when the battery in my smart key died (a first world problem if there ever was one) and ended up with me stopping at the pond when it was beautifully flat and still.
  What an autumn we’ve had!

Your fall is spectacular, Barbara! I'm so glad Olive is on duty guarding you. I agree - our first world "problems" would seem minor to some (PS my Kindle sometimes "skips" - a problem for me!).

Fall colors are just starting to pop here in NW Arkansas. The next couple of weeks should be wonderful. Very nice collection of images.

Oh, the autumn reflection is breathtaking. Just beautiful. And I always love seeing photos of Olive. She's such a sweetie. :-)

Great set.
Olive is just so cute. I love how skittish pugs seem to be. Last night our Cricket freaked out when she saw Coleen's Dress hanging from my office door.
Loved your Still and Good Day shots. Awesome foliage.
