Sunday Scavenger 257, 274/365

Linking with Ashley for this week's Scavenger Hunt Sunday....yay.

Yay Sunday; coffee; sun; relaxed pace; parent's took the dog for the weekend :), yay for all those things.  Yay even more my bestest friend ever in the whole world is being ordained an interfaith chaplain today.  I can't wait to be there to witness it all.  Yay all around.

This week's scavenger hunt topics:  HOT, HOT, HOT, Finding Form, Front Page of the News, Chore, and Beads....and here we go.

{274/365} Mussels
HOT, HOT, HOT:  Went out to dinner a few nights back.  My friend ordered the spicy mussels that were steaming hot when they came to the table.  A good sport she let me take a couple snaps before diving in.  I understand they were were the margaritas.

Finding Form:  My dear friend Randy.  Yesterday was concert day and he and I weren't singing just West African drumming a few numbers-there was some downtime.  I like this shot that includes the tops of the rows of pews between us-and doesn't he have like the BEST hair? 

The News {257/365}
{257/365} The News
Front Page of the News:  I snapped this a month or so ago when unrest in Syria was in the headlines.  The photo is so striking-I wish it were mine, but am glad to have a legit reason to share.

Painting the Deck

Chore:  Please note that the first 4 letters of this photo's title express my feeling about this annual chore.

Water Beads
Water Beads
Beads:  Stretching outside what I think beads are-don't you love how interpretation can work in your favor sometimes?  Local farm stand turns on the sprinklers late day.....lots of fun when you can catch the beads of water with the sun.

Those are my takes.  Thanks for taking the time to sneak a peek.  Can't wait for next week's list.

Hello fellow Susan. I find painting a pain as well! It seems I have endless paint projects around our home. I LOVE your water beads shot! Great shot!

Great shots Susan.....those mussels are making me salivate. You have to tell me the name of the restaurant so hubby and I can get some when we are in the area shopping. Question for you -
"why haven't you posted a video of your drumming group?" I know I'd like to see and hear them. Just something to think about.

Painting the deck is a pain, I agree. I love the beads of water, too. And your friend becoming an interfaith chaplain, how wonderful is that? Fabulous!

Beautifully interpreted!

I love the photos and wish i had his head of hair too. Thank you for the comments tip about internet explorer. I had just upgraded to IE9, but never associated the problem with that. Tomorrow I am going back to 9...apparently my husband changed his back last week. It's always something!

Hey friend
the side-lighting in the steaming bowl of mussels photo is awesome. that is a great shot. nice head of hair, yes. and I love Water Beads. oh that I could photograph water droplets. it's my latest obsession.
last Sat. I was in a class for 6 hours learning about my camera. It was very helpful, and I also got some validation too - no one else understood their cameras either! plus a rep from Nikon was there and he was a genius as far as I'm concerned. what a great guy to have around. he knew my camera from the inside out.
from reading comments and blogs around the net I'm getting that people are still having some troubles with commenting, etc. If I might make a suggestion - try changing to Mozilla Firefox. When I was taking a web design class that's one of the first things the instructor had us do and it has made a world of difference for me. I didn't upgrade to the most recent version though, I'm still operating with 3.5 or whatever. I didn't like the newest version but eventually I'll have to switch over. But I can't see ever going back to IE. just sayin'. But it's a subjective thing. have a great week Susan.
