For the first time ever, I can say that all the pictures were taken this past week. I just wish that a couple of them were better quality.



My youngest daughter left today for a trip with her grandparents to Florida. They are going to welcome (hopefully soon) our newest family member to the world. Here she is with her grandfather, taking her luggage to her camper home-away-from-home. She is so excited. Her brother, not so much so.



I never knew the word ‘jalapeno’ could be so entertaining! It kept my silly boy and his sister entertained for the better part of a meal at Moe’s.

This puppy face steals my heart every time!



My girlie-girl loves bows and ribbons!



I used to do all my writing on paper, even if I had to eventually retype in on the computer. No longer. This journal is a year old, yet only about a quarter filled. I miss the feel of the old paper journal, but the keyboard is so much easier.

My Scavenger Hunt Sunday pictures were taken on my Friday Day Off at the Beach. I’m so fortunate to live close enough to the coast that my warm weather days off can be little beach vacations.

Beneath Your Feet

under my feet

Sand and seashells – what more could I want. Well, except maybe a much-needed pedicure on my short little toes!

Capturing Movement


The ocean is in constant motion.



Sand art – compliments of God.

Face Your Fears

facing fears

I’ve saved many a starfish from diminishing tidal pools, but always with buckets, shovels, or sticks. For some reason I’ve been afraid to actually hold them in my hand. But I did it!



It doesn’t get any better than this!

Not your typical rainbow, but colorful nonetheless. This is the ceiling decoration in one of the party rooms at The House of Jump – a happening kind of place for kids’ parties. 



Fluffy kitty, fluffy blanket: life is good!



Time to check the mail!



Metal artwork is a staple of historic downtown Charleston. This is one of my favorites.



I love the graceful limbs of the live oak trees in this park near the Battery.

My daughter, Anna, actually took this picture. I can’t claim it, but it’s so cool I wanted to share it. What a neat perspective!

Scavenger Hunt Sunday

I’ve been surfing all kinds of blogs lately, looking for good ideas to help me through the May WordCount Blogathon. I ran across one I absolutely love – Ramblings and Photos, by Ashley Sisk. It was here that I found the Sunday Scavenger Hunt. Each week she posts five theme words/phrases. Your job, should you choose to accept, is to take a photo for each of the five theme words. I’ve always loved photography, so this is the kind of challenge I like. Participants are encouraged to use new photos for the scavenger hunt, although it is acceptable to sometimes use an archived photo. Since I didn’t discover this site until Saturday, three of my five photos are from the archives this week. I’ll try to do better next week.

So here’s my very first Scavenger Hunt Sunday post:



There in the shadows of the potted plants (outside of the Hess gas station, believe it or not!) lies another treasure: a shiny penny – heads up!

I am so fortunate to live this close to inspirational sights like this one. There is no beauty quite like the beauty of the seashore. This picture was taken back during the winter on a sunset walk on the Isle of Palms.



Sunrise, sunset: they mark our time with comforting predictability and beauty. This picture was taken at Riverfront Park on the Cooper River at our Easter Sunrise Service this year.

Close Up

A burst of springtime beauty found in a bunch of daisies, also at Riverfront Park. I’ve yet to be able to look at daisies and not smile!

With Mirror

This is what caught my eye in my side view mirror when the kids and I returned home from eating supper. It looks like a fireball is behind my neighbor’s house. While it appears to be the setting sun, it’s actually light from a lamppost in their yard.
