Songography-The Best Day of My Life edition and Scavenger Hunt Sunday, October 20, 2013

Ah we've come to the end of yet another crazy, hectic week (at least for me) and now it's time to unwind with a little fun courtesy of Kathy (You'll Shoot Your Eye Out) and Ashley (Ramblings & Photos). 

Let's start the fun with SONGOGRAPHY where this weeks featured song is,  Best Day of My Life - American Authors.  (Such a cute video featuring a fun day in a dogs life).  Much of my week was taken up with Dental Appt., Errands, Kid activities and working in the yard.  A busy week and not really what I'd consider the Best Day of My Life.  Don't get me wrong, I enjoyed the week but something that I really enjoyed was this....

Taken 9-21-13 in Lincoln City, OR (USA) - Coleen and I enjoyed some time playing in the waves on the beach prior to my niece's wedding.  Any day at the beach is a (Best Day of My Life) type day for me and it was made even better by sharing it with my granddaughter,  Coleen. One of the best things about my life is spending time with her. 

So now let's join in on SCAVENGER HUNT SUNDAY -  This weeks prompts were:
Watching, Leafy, First World Problem, Still and A Good Day.

A few of these were challenging.  Especially the First World Problem one.  I had no clue what that was all about so I hope that I got it right.

WATCHING:  Coleen and I took a little drive around town looking (or watching) for Halloween d├ęcor.

Every step you take, every move you make,  I'll be "watching" you (courtesy of the Police song).


Another shot from the Scenic Loop drive.  I love how this "leafy" bush frames the mountains in the background.

FIRST WORLD PROBLEM:  I didn't know if this was supposed to be a problem within the US, or just what.  I'm guessing that's what it was meant to be and am using a photo from this past August's parade where this cause was supported.

I think Racism and Women's Rights are certainly "problems" that need to be dealt with.


This is one of our cats, Dottie, sitting very still as she watches one of the other cats to see if it was going to pounce on her.


 Friday was a "Good Day" for Coleen as it was Spirit Day and Crazy Hair Day at her school.  Her mom fixed her hair for her and sprayed the blue/white color into it and tied blue/white ribbons in her hair.  She had fun with her crazy hair and enjoyed a good day at school.

So that's it for this week.  -  Thank you all for stopping by.
