Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge: V

I love photography challenges. One of these days, I’ll actually sit down with my DSLR camera and figure out how to use it! Until then, my iPhone does a pretty good job of capturing the pictures that I want. There’s nothing like a good challenge- like this week’s for Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge, which is a word which starts with the letter V and has at least six letters.

Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge: Q

Surprisingly it wasn’t as difficult finding “Q” words for Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge: Letter Q as I thought.

Beej recently discovered the fun of game pieces. They are precious cargo on trains. They march in straight lines. Organizing them into color or style groups is also fun for a three year old so it was no surprise when I found chess queens jumbled up in a pile. queens in a pile


These days any house with a little boy probably has its own supply of Lightning McQueens on hand.

Have a great day!


Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge: Letter P

I enjoy all of Cee’s Photo Challenges but this week’s challenge for Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge: Letter P is more of a challenge than last week’s Letter O (which only had to have the letter O in the word). There are a few guidelines- the word must begin with a letter P and be at least five letters long. It sounds simple enough but if you’re anything like me, well, what seemed like an easy challenge had me drawing a blank! Using a little creativity, I was able to rise to the challenge. (Maybe the challenge should have been- how many times can you use the word challenge in one paragraph??? Yeah, I’m cringing just a bit here!)

A Lovely Letter

When I’m looking for “L” words, this song ALWAYS come to mind. It’s funny how you can have an association with a certain song and no matter how many years go by, I start singing, “La La La La lemons…”

Although Ernie and Bert gave me some great ideas for L words for Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge, I’ll stick with the ones I’ve shared below!

This week’s Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge: Letter K allows us to use any word with K in it- and how could I pass up the chance to use these photos on Halloween?

My Three Little Birds

This week’s song, Three Little Birds by Bob Marley and the Wailers (1977), never fails to bring me a renewed sense of determination and a feeling that I can overcome anything as long as I keep my priorities straight. As long as I can remember, what makes me happiest is my family. The combination of this reassuring song and my love for my “three little birds” gives me motivation to keep moving.

“Three little birds
Pitch by my doorstep
Singin’ sweet songs
Of melodies pure and true
Saying’, (this is my message to you)
Singing’ don’t worry ’bout a thing
‘Cause every little thing gonna be alright
Singing’ don’t worry (don’t worry) ’bout a thing
‘Cause every little thing gonna be alright”
Three Little Birds, Bob Marley and the Wailers
