Scavenger Hunt Sunday

Crossed-We ventured out last weekend for some much needed fresh air.

 There is an abandoned house near a beautiful spring fed pond.

 I wandered around the house and found some things along my path.

 This old metal was apparently used as a bridge by the resident raccoons.

Glimpse-This is one of my favorite areas on my father's farm.

 These rock bluffs overlook the spring fed creek

that runs thru this area. The winter is a great time to see the valley below.

Handwritten-One of my old gardening books I found years ago in an antique store.

 When I got home 

I discovered a handwritten note in the pages

 of seeds the book's owner had plans for buying.

** Bliss-One last shot before the sun goes down.

 It is my own personal bliss to capture the moment as it truly was.

Gray-I collect fossils and this is one I truly treasure. I keep it in a bowl on my coffee table.

 I pick it up often and

look at the shimmer and feel the texture.

 I have always been fascinated by fossils. When I lived in

Colorado I would set out on a trail with my eyes to the ground and my rockhounding book in

hand looking for the exact spot where my treasure lied.

 Yes, I am a rockhound geek, yikes!

Hoping your week was all you planned it would be.

Happy to be featured here.

Planning a breakfast, small chores, then dashing out

to enjoy this beautiful day.

Happy Sunday friends.

Get out and find your space.
