"Some people try to turn back their odometers of life. Not Me. I want people to know why I look the way I do. I have travelled a lot of miles & not all roads were paved.
Today is a holiday for us - Victoria Day, aka Two Four weekend. The first long weekend of the summer season. So time to think about the annual Summer Photo Scavenger Hunt.
Summer Photo Scavenger Hunt (SPSH) runs from June 1st to September 30th. Photos should be taken by you or a family member, we don't want to get in trouble for copy right rules.
A list not too long; a list of finds to share; a list that works for those of us at home; a list that works for those who travel about; a list that includes some difficult to find; a list that includes some easy to find; a list that can be interpreted with our differences; a list for one find or a list for all to find ... or a list to see what everyone else finds.
I hope you have fun with what ever your level of participation is. First link in will be Monday July 11th & the final will be Friday September 30th. As in previous years, just let me know in the comments if you want to be part of the group & I'll list your link on July 11th.
The 2022 SPSH List:

Good Morning - Spring is definitely in full swing & action in my part of the world.
Current Spring Tulips. This has been an amazing year for tulips in this region. Everyone is talking about the abundance of bloom. I am so amazed at the number & varying colours of bloom in my garden. So far I have lost only 3 tulip blooms to naughty squirrels, or more likely naughty bunnies.
Current Spring Sex. The wild bunnies are running about; early evening last week we had two males chasing each other off for the solitary female. Will it mean having baby bunnies to battle in the garden?
Current Spring Cleaning. The township has sent around two street sweepers to tidy up the roads. They did a fantastic job. Sadly two days later, 2 neighbours decided that it was too much work for them to bag their grass clippings & blew their cuttings on to the sidewalks & road, which makes a horrible mess to walk through. The grass clippings then get washed into the sewer system.
Current Spring Birth Day. One of our neighbours around the corner wanted to let everyone know that they had a girl. A fun announcement.
Current Spring Planting: The farmer in the field behind us was busy preparing the fields & planting corn. We are desperate for some rain.
Current Spring Feeding: Our little chipmunks have returned, This one, I believe is from last year as he seems to know the routine of me in the garden, means a peanut handout. Oh I am so well trained. This year I am calling this one Timmer. A name of a character from a favourite book.
Current Spring NSD. For National Scrapbook Day I did a few layouts but mostly on this Saturday, I participated in an online (FB) card making, catalogue reveal "party", hosted by my upline contact for Stampin Up. I won two of the draws (stamp sets) & made this mystery card. The host sends the written instructions for cutting & as a group we put the card together. I was quite pleased with my results. The ongoing joke is not to have naked envelopes. I must admit this is a set I nearly always forget when card making.
Current Spring Returning: No photos of this, but I conducted/participated in my last Zoom meetings last week. All are preparing for the migration back to in- person working. Not sure how I am feeling about it. 😔
Current Excitement: Next Monday, May 23rd is a holiday weekend for us so I'll be posting the 2022 Summer Scavenger Photo Hunt list.
See you later in the week for some Wisdom 👧
Currently Wondering About some recent "deep discussions" on social media.
Item 1: Blates: is this newly discovered or just a rebranding of what I grew up calling pasta plates? What is a Blate you ask. Short answer; a wide, shallow, rounded vessel for food that is a combination of a bowl & plate.
Is this just another social trend? But when thousands of Twitter users can agree on something, you have to wonder if they are on to something with the love child of a deep bowl & a flat plate mate & create the Blate. What do you think? Blates on your shopping list?
Item 2: Pineapple; it seems nothing creates bigger wars on Twitter than putting pineapple on a pizza & now it is war on pineapple in a pasta dish. Are you team pineapple on pizza & in pasta? Or pineapple for tropical drinks & desserts only? Me, I like pineapple on my pizza & we often grill pineapple rings for burger enhancement, both the meat burger of Mr Man & my veggie burger.

I think I like this trend. Although I haven't ordered one/two/three ... yet.
