I’m blaming all the kitchen work this summer for the fact that I missed the July Scavenger Hunt. For awhile, I was just going to post it late, but I finally decided to throw in the towel and skip right to the August Scavenger Hunt. Thanks to Kathy, as always, for hosting. When I first saw this list I was afraid I was going to have a hard time, but the trip to see the kids last weekend saved my hide!
A Boat. On the canal in Indianapolis. See? I told you it was like Venice!
A Festival or Fair. This year’s ill-fated Indiana State Fair.
A Fountain. I had a shot of a fountain along the canal, but on the bike ride back home, SweetiePie pointed out this cute little elephant fountain in someone’s beautiful garden.
A Picnic. We had a late breakfast before our bike ride, so we just had a snack picnic. Cracker Jacks mandatory.
A Sport. Hey. Knitting is TOO a sport!
Bread. I bought those thin bagels to try with the Biscoff spread last week and they were awful. I put them in the trees for the squirrels to munch on.
Fabric. Something we have lots of around here. I thought this pile of scraps from The Children were very appropriate since their arrival this month caused such excitement here in ThimbleannaLand.
A Market. Fresh.
Mountains. Oh please. We’re not the flat-as-a-pancake plain states, but we might as well be. I thought about cheating and using one of my mountain pictures from Spring Market, but I try to take the pictures during the specified month. So, how ’bout mountains of buttons? This was the cute display in Crimson Tate, the cute new quilt shop in Indianapolis. I love that they’re in a gumball machine!
Something Ancient. I think we’re too new of a country to have anything that I’d consider really ancient. But I thought this old coca cola bottling company building across the street from Crimson Tate looked pretty cool.
Something Bizarre. This is three pictures of the same sign on Mass Ave. in Indianapolis. We call her the Sexy Lady. She’s constantly moving and she dances back and forth, back and forth, all day and night long. She looks pretty cool at night.
Street Food. An ice cream vendor along the canal. (Taken by SweetiePie — thanks SweetiePie!)
So, that’s it. I’m SO ready for the weekend. We’ve had a terribly stressful week at work. We had layoffs again this week and one of my favorite friends got hit. We’ll just say there were tears today as he said his goodbyes. Our former pod of seven is now down to three. When our little twin mother is out on maternity leave, the other remaining guy and I are going to put up tiki torches and see who gets voted off the island next. (Sorry, all we have left is stupid jokes. Stupid layoffs.)
Have a great weekend — and in the US, a Long Weekend — Yipee!!!
