photo hunt: what is that?

I've had a busy week, and was going to skip this week's Photo Hunt "What IS that?" theme. However, I couldn't resist pulling out my camera when stopped at a red light today. I looked up in the sky and saw this:

I don't have any ideas. Anybody?

photo hunt: pointed

The first thing I thought of when I saw that today's Photo Hunt theme were the pointed spikes on my "baby" cactus.


Yes, if you look closely, you can see dust on the spikes. How do you dust a cactus?

Even though this little guy is only a couple inches tall, it is hardly a baby. We bought a cactus seed kit on a family vacation to Arizona or New Mexico. When I was 10.

This tiny thing is 23 years old!


It has started growing better ever since I moved it from a small terracotta pot to a glazed ceramic one, but it's still very small.

photo hunt: water

One of my favorite photos, taken from one of my favorite places.

This was the view from our rented beach house in the Outer Banks, North Carolina a couple years ago. We go back next month. I can't wait!

I can't resist posting this photo of Joey as well. This is why I'll only drink out of plastic cups around my house ...

oops, were you still drinking that?

photo hunt: emotion

baby pout
Me, 1975

I was hoping to find a screaming Santa photo in my baby book, but I looked pretty indifferent in the photos I found.

But I love the pout in this one!

photo hunt: bad hair

When I saw the theme this week, I knew what I had to do.

6th grade graduation
6th grade graduation, 1987

This "bad hair" was with me from 1987-1989 when I finally managed to grow it out. The bad glasses did not help things.

After this experience, I refused to cut layers again for over 10 years.

photo hunt: self

I almost forgot! This week's theme is "Self."

Rather than use an old photo, I just grabbed my camera and started pointing it at my face.

Today's been a lazy day (well, since this morning's swim, anyway). I showered at the pool and pulled my hair into a ponytail, where it's been all day.

I never bothered putting on make-up, even though I actually left the house for a quick shopping trip. I usually make a little effort if I'm going out in public, but not today. At least I swapped the gym shorts for some capri pants!

Anyway, this is me today. Unedited. I guess I felt like being honest again. (At least I'm awake this time!)

photo hunt: time

I was going to take a new photo, but decided I'd much rather use this classic timepiece that was on display in our rented beach house last summer:

i'm late for the photo hunt!

This was supposed to be up yesterday, but I was busy with parents and performing. So here I am posting three times in an hour!

This is my first time participating in Photo Hunt, but I couldn't resist the theme, unique/funny signs. My favorite!

falling fruits

The reason I know about the theme this week is that people saw this in my Weekly Winners last week and suggested it.

I have a few more in my collection, though!

How are we supposed to play?

This just seems odd.
I prefer to use the closet, anyway
