Scavenger Hunt Sunday: November 20, 2011

Scavenger Hunt Sunday items: Mainly One Color, Around the Home, Reflection, Writing and Water

Mainly One Color

I was hoping for some snow this week because I wanted to use this prompt for the color white so I could make it my picture for the Shades of  Autumn challenge. I remember thinking the neighbors fence and house were perfect, but sure needed some more white, wouldn't it be nice if it snowed. I got my wish on Friday morning.  Sorry everyone.

Around the House

For the life of me I didn't know what to do for this prompt. I was trying to figure out what would be interesting around my house. My son suggested going outside the house and get pictures of the girls running around the house. That might have worked, except for the fact that he suggested it tonight after it was already dark. Then Hannah wanted to help put away the silverware, like she has started to do more often. It wasn't until she was almost done that it dawned on me that the children helping out around the house would be a great shot for this prompt. And who best to star, but my newest little helper.

Thursday night was the first night the "new" gas station was ready for business. This gas station has been here for as long as I have lived in the area and recently was bought by Acorn Markets. I shared pictures during the summer of the demolition of the thrift shop next door. And we have been watching them put up the new pumps with rapt attention. They were finally done this week and when I looked out the window I saw the way the lights reflected in the puddles, I had to take some pictures.


Miss Hannah loves to write and color these days. She makes papers filled with swirls and scribbles. It amazes me how perfectly she holds a pen with no direction from us. Tabitha had been the same way. I took these shots at the Bills game two weeks ago, but when I saw the prompt, I knew what I wanted to share.

There is a little pond between our home and where we go to church. On the way to story time the other day I saw these ducks and some geese congregating there. So on the way home I stopped to take some pictures. I thought this would be a great shot for water. Love the ripples and the wake of the ducks.
