My favorite day for blogging - SCAVENGER HUNT SUNDAY... (truth be known - I read blogs daily!)
This week's SHS words:
WATER DROPS or WATER FLOWING, FAITHFULNESS,
THEN & NOW, FINGERTIPS &
BUCKET LIST: CANDY APPLES
|WATER DROPS or FLOWING WATER|
Yesterday, JPE & I wandered down the San Luis Obispo riverwalk, on our way to coffee. I picked this photo of the slowly FLOWING WATER because I could watch the leaves float down river. This photo reminds me of a Monet painting... with the tree branches swooping over the water... sort of dreamy & peaceful. Ahhh!
This picture is from my archives... Allie's dog, Lola, has captured a place in many hearts. Lola had settled into Tasha's arms for a long winter's sleep at the cabin. In my experience, dogs demonstrate a FAITHFULNESS that can wipe out all the unpleasantries of difficult days. On my way to Sacramento, I'll get to spend an evening with Allie & Lola this week.
|THEN & NOW|
In 4th grade, children learn about the history of the California Missions. Living in San Luis Obispo County, we are lucky to have access to one of these historical landmarks, Mission San Luis Obispo de Tolosa. The mission bells operated much like a community clock, ringing in the morning, at lunch & at the end of the workday. All 21 missions have bells... it interesting to note that the SLO Mission added written signs next to the bells. Just an example of THEN & NOW.
JPE graciously (??) offered to model some FINGERTIP puppets which were brought home from Peru. Of course, they are kissing... a llama attracted to a horse. Opposites can be attracted to each other.

Even if you don't participate in SHS, you may have seen Sarah's FALL BUCKET LIST on Pinterest, Instagram or her HER BLOG. One of our SHS tasks was to take a picture of something from this list. Although we didn't MAKE caramel apples, I took this picture through the local candy shop window. Three caramel apples... left at the end of the day. I wonder??? what's done with the left-overs?
Next week's SHS words:
ORANGE or PINK (Breast Cancer Awareness Month),
VIEW FROM THE TOP,
Have a great rest of your weekend... yummy smells are coming from our kitchen! JPE made crumpets for our afternoon tea.
