Friday’s Hunt v2.13

Friday’s Hunt

Eden Hills

I’m here to dispel the notion that aliens abducted me. Hubby’s away for a few days so I tore into my card-making room and strew papers (among other things) all over the floor in an attempt to rearrange the space to make it more user-friendly, see what I need to use or give away, etc. I’m not finished yet, but one can cross the room unimpeded.

This week we’re hunting for Starts with M, Week’s Favorite, and Work. I should have checked the list sooner while I had piles in the floor (for work).

Marina, and masts, start with M.


My daughter’s friend put in a lot of work to make this bouquet of paper roses.


My Week’s Favorite features my furry friend.

Here are Cee’s questions for this week. I hope you’ll join in and share your answers, too!

Are you a hugger or a non-hugger?

What is your least favorite candy?
Squishy-marshmallowy candy 

What’s the first thing that comes to mind when you hear the word “fun”?

Freshly-baked bread
Abelia blossoms
Yankee Candle–Beechwood
Freshly-mown grass

Bonus question:  What are you grateful for from last week, and what are you looking forward to in the week coming up?
I’m grateful to have been able to attend the writers conference, I look forward to finishing the organization of my craft room that I started last week. 

Sorry for the brevity, I need to get on the treadmill and increase my step count for the day–too much reading and not enough moving! 


Good Fences #130

Good Fences

Our writers conference started this evening, and the only good fence I have to share is the fencing that forms the butterfly house at the botanical garden. It’s tough work herding butterflies! I hope to visit your blogs this weekend, as we have a long day ahead of us, Friday.

Share Your World–2016 Week 37

Share Your World
Here are Cee’s questions for this week, I hope you’ll share your answers, too! 


Have you ever owned a rock, pet rock, or gem that is not jewelry?
One of our granddaughters used to give us a rock every time we left and headed for home. I also have a few my mom collected over the years. Most of them were used in creating a butterfly oasis–a sunny spot filled with sand and topped with rocks where they can dry their wings. 

What is your greatest strength or weakness?
Unconditional LOVE. 

What makes you feel grounded?
Knowing my feet are planted firmly on the Rock of my Salvation, Jesus Christ.

Would you rather never be able to eat warm food or never be able to eat cold food?
That would depend on where I lived. Cold food would be refreshing in a hot climate, and hot food warms one from the inside on a cold winter’s day. 

Bonus question:  What are you grateful for from last week, and what are you looking forward to in the week coming up?
I’m grateful we got to spend the weekend with our birthday girl, and I’m looking forward to the Hampton Roads Writers Conference later this week. img_3393

Friday’s Hunt v2.11

Friday’s Hunt v2.11

This week we’ve searched high and low to come up with Starts with K, Week’s Favorite, and Yellow or Gold. 

I walked around the neighborhood recently looking for Starts with K. Surely, I would pass a skateboarder wearing Knee pads, or find a Knocker on someone’s door. Nope. There was a Kia in front of a house, but I didn’t think it wise to walk up the driveway and take a picture of the nameplate. Thinking back, I could have snapped a pic of the entire car and captioned the photo. So, to make my long story shorter, here are my offerings for this week:

Good Fences #129

Good Fences

I’m running out of fences from Edenton, NC, about time for another road trip! I liked the flag highlighted by the sunset, and it’s always a plus to find a fence in the background. Just noticed they fly the flag adopted in 1777, representing the 13 original colonies.
