Today is Saturday, and we all know what that means, right? It’s time for another edition of Saturday Scavenger Shots! I decided that we should work with the word “draw”.
I decided to hop on my mini trampoline and attempt to draw at the same time. This is the result! I also tried to add my signature (again, while jumping up and down on the trampoline). You can kinda-sorta make out the “W” at the end there.
Then there’s this one that’s been rattling around in my head recently. I was thinking of the saying “you’re just skin and bones” and I had to draw something.
Now I need to pick someone to pick the next word. How bout choo, Laura?
This is a fun game, all! If you want to play, please join us!
My drawing itch seems to be back, and I have some ideas. I was going to draw something new, so I found one of my sketch pads and tried to find a blank page. I found some things that brought back memories and made me smile and laugh, which was just what I needed today!
I posted the following photo on “Dinkums and Doodles”, the blog that FW (from the blog “Tortoise Feathers”) shares with me. He’s the artist that makes that blog thrive, and I have been such a slacker. I finally posted something tonight after what seems like centuries.
Then there’s this sketch. I drew it awhile back and during a time when I was seriously frustrated with a “crush” situation. I thought I loved the guy and tried ever so hard to woo him (did I seriously type “woo”?!). He was never meant to be, but my little ole heart was stubborn and kept hoping and pushing. It finally threw up its hands (if hearts have hands) and notified my common sense that it was best for me to move on.
I love to play hide-n-seek with family pets, especially with cats. My mom’s cat Joshua will play with me, but I’m an easy find. I giggle when I hear him “meow” out of confusion or maybe he’s saying, “Where in the hell did she go?!”
This happens all of the time. I get angry when I’m trying to research something (mostly for my mom), and things go awry. It frustrates me beyond words. I pound my fist a lot, I’m surprised I have a right wrist bone.
Hello there! Happy Sunday and Happy Mother’s Day! AlienCG over at “Swamp Gas and Moonlit Reflections” picked the word “stone” for yesterday’s edition of Saturday Scavenger Shots, and I did find a photo from ye ole archives. Check it out:
This is a closeup of a little brook that runs across Big Creek Parkway. If you look hard enough, you will see some stones under the water. Pretty, eh?
I’ve been tagged, so let’s go with the word “DRAW” for next week! Have fun!
Happy Wednesday, or what’s left of it! The lovely Laura from “What Fresh Hell is This” presented us with the word “classic” for last weekend’s edition of Saturday Scavenger Shots!
Here’s my copy of “Dracula 2000″. It’s one of the many, many, many, MANY movies based on the CLASSIC horror movie, “Dracula”.
Here is the CLASSIC, little black dress, or at least my version of it. Since I also have a skirt suit in black, I took this one and made some revisions for a Halloween costume. A few years ago I was a zombie prom queen, and the original dress didn’t fit me. I was much more comfortable wearing this dress.
I came up with the word “punctuate” for last Saturday’s edition of Saturday Scavenger Shots, but then I couldn’t think of anything. Then the other day, while walking back to my apartment from the store, I looked up at the sky and was inspired.
The white chemtrails punctuated the blue sky. I also love the white blossoms on the trees. They’re set up all along the parking lot.
I also thought of this scene from “Seinfeld”, when Elaine had a fight with her boyfriend about the lack of punctuation on some phone messages he wrote down for her while she was out.
Now let me pick someone for the next word conjurer! Laura, you’re the chosen one! :)
Hey there and happy Friday! Most of you are acquainted with “Blogthings”, but did you know that there’s also a blog? It’s called “The Blogthings Blog”. She has her own “Friday Five” that includes a Blogthings quiz! Here is this week’s list o’questions.
Friday Five – Shopping Edition
1. What are your favorite stores to shop at?
Walmart, Pat Catan’s, Gabriel Brothers, Old Time Pottery, Tuesday Morning, The Dollar Tree, Marshall’s and Burlington Coat Factory
2. What do you like to shop for?
Movies, crafts, food, makeup, cleaning supplies, sometimes clothes and shoes
3. Where do you prefer to shop? Online? At an indoor mall? An outdoor mall? Downtown?
I prefer to shop in an actual store most of the time. When I’m shopping for clothes, I like to shop in the store because I need to try things on. I try to avoid going to the malls, they make my eyes burn and there just aren’t that many shops in the mall that I like to visit. I haven’t been Downtown to shop in a very long time. If I’m looking for music or movies, sometimes I’ll shop online.
4. What’s the best thing you’ve bought in the past year or two?
My dollhouse kit, dollhouse furniture and some outfits for work
5. Take What’s Your Shopping Stereotype? – What do you get? Is it accurate?
My shopping stereotype is Economical. Yes, it’s very accurate!
Your Shopping Stereotype is Economical
Cheap. Thrifty. Frugal. These are all word that you can (and likely do) use to describe your shopping style.Why pay top dollar when you can get a bargain? You love to save money, and you’re really quite good at it too.You’re most likely to be found shopping in discount stores, but you also know how to rock the clearance rack at top end places.People are always complementing you on your finds, and they can’t believe how cheaply you get everything.
I had a week long vacation last week and it was really nice. Even though all vacations seem to go by super fast, this one had a nice, steady pace that let me enjoy my time off.
My mom and I went to a flea market at the local fairgrounds. It’s set up every weekend, and in the winter they have it inside. I bought a few movies; “Not Another Teen Movie” (“You’d better ba-ring it.” “Oh, it’s already been ba-roughten.”) and “The Professional”. Then there’s a lady who buys lots of stuff at Costco or some place like that and resells the stuff at a lower price. I bought a huge bottle of Scope, because that stuff’s not cheap, and some nice perfume. Then there was a stand nearby that sold hotdogs, sausages and fries. There’s something about buying fries at an outdoor event….the smell tortures me into buying some.
We also checked out a place I’ve been meaning to visit called “Tuesday Morning”. I went to one years ago in another city, but it just seemed to be a shop filled with candle stuff. I half expected to run into the same thing at this different location, but I was pleasantly surprised. Most of the stuff is decorative, and it’s so cool and affordable. They also had some DVDs available and I bought Ellen Degeneres’s DVD called “Here and Now”. I’ll have to visit that place again this weekend since it’s payday weekend.
I also walked to the library and checked out some books, but I talked about some of those already. It was a shoppy, crafty, exercisey, movie-watching kind of vacation and I loved it. There are two more vacation days on deck in a few more weeks. Then I have a week off in July, then the day after Halloween and two days off after New Year’s Day. I still have 8 days left, but I’m hanging onto them to see what kind of good excitement pops up through the rest of the year.
