SCAVENGER HUNT SUNDAY 9.2.12

 SHS - all pics taken 9.2.12

Checking in with my choices for SCAVENGER HUNT SUNDAY.

The words are:  
CANDID, TOYS, ANY OF THE SENSES, BATTERIES & HALF.


I limited myself to 30 minutes for this week's hunt.... it's overcast (foggy) this morning, so I had crummy light.... the pictures have been staged!! (I'll bet I'm NOT the only SHS participant who "stages" their findings?)

CANDID
JPE's Buddha was not cooperating this morning. I couldn't get her attention, so I snapped this CANDID shot of her. 

TOYS
When I came downstairs this morning, there was a strong fragrance... a fruity smell?? The nectarines were ripe... AND the "bouncy-ball" (as Lydia calls this TOY) was in the fruit dish. The gal that cleans our house must have put it there!!! (yes, I'm one of those lucky working women that has some help...  since JPE is working 3/4 time, we've cut our cleaning to every other week). BTW - This is the only picture that wasn't staged.

ANY OF THE SENSES
Breakfast this morning! UMMMM.... See Canyon Apples... with a smear of peanut butter... a Laughing Cow cheese... and some grapes. Eating uses all the SENSES! vision, hearing, smell, taste & touch. Think about it... am I correct?

BATTERIES
I needed a strong cup of coffee to get my BATTERIES going this morning. JPE's off backpacking in the back-country with some former students... I had to make my own pot of coffee!

HALF
This gourd has two different designs... HALF has stars & the other HALF has snowflakes. I purchased this Christmas ornament at the National Museum of the American Indian Museum in Washington DC. If you get a chance to visit the Smithsonian Museums, don't miss it! It's often overlooked due to the popularity of the other museums - most people spend their time at the American History Museum and the Air & Space Museum...
BTW - even if you don't spend time at the NMAI, make sure you eat in the Mitsitam Cafe!!! Mom & I spent several days exploring the museums & we planned our day to include meals there... just so we could sample more Native American foods.

Hope you enjoyed the pics from my 30 minute hunt!
Next week's words are: MONOCHROMATIC, STARTS WITH THE LETTER..., UPSIDE DOWN, HAIR & SOFT.

Don't forget - anyone can participate in SCAVENGER HUNT SUNDAY. Look for pictures of the five words for next week, then visit Ashley's blog to post them. You should check out the picture Ashley posted for CANDID - it's a crack-up!
