Sunday, July 14, 2013

Double link up today!  First ~ shout out to my sister and her inaugural Song-ography link at You'll Shoot Your Eye Out.  What a great idea to combine songs & photos.  It's just one more instance where I say, "Why didn't I think of that?!"  Join in on the fun!

Homeward Bound
"I wish I was Homeward Bound" ~ Simon & Garfunkel
 
Seriously...I wish she was Homeward Bound and not returning to The Big Apple with her fiancĂ©!  We have so much wedding planning to do and time is running out.  She doesn't look happy to be leaving.  Does she??
 
And now my return to Scavenger Hunt Sunday.  I've been M.I.A. for a few weeks and am a bit rusty.
 
RELAXING
I took two photos of this guy sunning on the steps of a store.  In the first, both eyes were closed.  He was so disturbed by my presence that he cracked open that one eye to peek at me and didn't move at all....very relaxed!
 
INSPIRING PERSON
This amazing mural "Inspiration" in State College, PA by Michael Pilato honors so many people important to the history of The Pennsylvania State University and State College, PA. 
 
"Success without honor is an unseasoned dish; it will satisfy your hunger, but it won't taste good." ~ Joseph Vincent Paterno 
 
WRITTEN WORDS
 
MEMORIES
Such wonderful college memories from this bar that just happens to have an awesome sign! It's one of those great places where we danced the nights away to oldies.  I may have consumed one or two beers there in my day!
 
BEST FRIEND
No doubt about it.  My husband is definitely my best friend.
 
Have a great week!  ~Karen

Random 5 Friday

I've been following Nancy @ A Rural Journal for quite awhile now.  Nancy is so talented AND interesting...an enviable combination!  Personally, I've been struggling with my motivation to practice my photography so I thought I'd try participating in this meme this week.  Five random facts....hmmmm.  Here goes!

1)   I LOVE yellow....sunshine, roses, lemons.  They all make me smile.  Ironically, I dislike lemonade - but its display makes me smile. 

2) I'm so happy that maxi skirts are in style.  Maxis are comfortable, easy to throw on, and are much cooler than pants or even shorts.  Everything old is new again!  I'm just dreading the day that huge, poufy sleeves from the 80's return.

3) This is a public service announcement....Today, July 12th is Cow Appreciation Day.  Show up at a Chick-fil-A fully dressed as a cow and you'll get a free meal.  Seriously...how many meals do you think they give away today.  Since I am sharing this info with you, all I ask in return is that if you participate, PLEASE send me a photo!!

4) I am adjusting to a new phase in my life that involves NOT going to work anymore.  The only hard part about it is that I never know what day of the week it is.

5) I always need a good book next to me.  I just finished Khaled Hosseini's And The Mountains Echoed.  It brought me to tears more than once which is NOT easy to do. 

Happy Friday!
