Scavenger Hunt - April 21, 2013

Jumping right in to Scavenger Hunt.
This is my happy place....Penn State.  Just saying "Penn State" makes me smile.  This weekend was Blue & White Weekend.  A weekend full of Spring fun....sports, carnival, fireworks (all cancelled due to torrential rain!) - which lead up to the football inter-squad scrimmage.  SNOW should NOT be a part of it!

Magnolia from my back yard.

Family or Faith
This photo is both....Family & Faith.  My Father passed away 4 months ago.  A couple of weeks ago, Mom brought down his tool boxes for us to go through in case we needed anything.  The boxes sat right where I put them, unopened.  When I finally popped open this lid, this is what I found....two items that  IMMEDIATELY make me think of my Dad....always have and always will.  A ruler and a level.  To my husband's dismay, I refuse to hang anything without using a level, and can spot differences in measurements as small as 1/16th of an inch.....Daddy's Little Girl :)     This photo is a reminder that Family is with us always, and Faith that Dad is a part of me forever.

Lion paws (Nittany Lion paws!)...they WOULD be fuzzy if they weren't sculptures.

THE place to gather for the best Grilled Stickies in the world.

Here's to hoping that the coming week is a better one than the past one.

Scavenger Hunt ~ April 14, 2013

Yikes....I've been away for awhile!  I just haven't had the motivation.  Nothing around me has looked "photo-worthy".  I have been blaming the weather, the lack of sunshine, anything and everything!  Well...I just returned from a short trip to Arizona with my hubby and the warmth and sunshine boosted my spirits and made me dust off my camera.  It was a busy week...but a fun week!


Old Glory flying above the Arizona State flag

A boy, a ball, and his shadow.  This young man kept himself entertained throughout a double-header...which is no easy task! 

Spring in Arizona

This is a sculpture by American artist, Philip Haas, inspired by Giuseppe Arcimboldo's Italian renaissance painting of the Four Seasons.  This is Spring...and he is smiling...because he is Spring!

It feels good to be back! I'm on my way over to Scavenger Hunt to see what you found.
