FOL14 - Playing Catch Up

It's been a whirlwind couple of weeks around here. 

Busy, fun, crazy, happy, excited, stressful, frustrating, confusing, shocked, sad, lost,....we've run the gamut.

So, I'm playing a bit of catch-up today with the Focus on Life: 2014 Weekly Photography Challenge.



Sally over at The Studio Sublime, gave us these two prompts for weeks 24 and 25.

Week 24:  Have FUN and get snappin'. To shoot with abandon, basically. 




These folks are kinda making fun of me taking photos. We're all 'snapping' each other 'snapping' each other - fun. And FUNNY! (it was to us, anyway!) I laughed so hard last weekend my sides still hurt.

Week 25: Be Colorful 
a) full of interest; lively and exciting.
b) having much or varied color; bright. 



Each day this summer I've tried to 'drink my colors'.  I mixed various fruits in my glass each morning, add ice and water and drink several glasses and then at the end of the day, eat the fruit. It's really refreshing, especially here in the desert with the 100+ degree temps.

I hope you're all having a great summer!  Be sure to hop around and see what 'colors' every one else has captured this week!

Until Next Time,
Peace, Love and Colorful Fun!
Cheers,
~Shel~

    1. Raspberries, kiwi, lime, lemon and orange slices,...but it does look like a peach, doesn't it? Gonna have to try that, because I love peaches/nectarines - oh yummy!

  3. That lovely beverage has just inspired me to see what colorful ingredients I might have to make one. Were you at Fashion Square in the first pic? That place is huge -- it really has to be an occasion for me to visit. Finishing up my Pearls challenge creation - can't wait to see what everyone comes up with!

    1. Paula, we were in Vegas,...just inside some hallway in the MGM grand (near bathrooms - LOL!!) - but Fashion Square is what it looks like in the photo, doesn't it?! And, I'm just hoping, w/all the work activities, travel, school/college and funeral things going on these last two weeks, than I can actually pull off the Pearls Blog Hop - wish me luck. And cross your fingers for me, please!! :-)

    1. It's really good Cynthia - the fruit makes the water just so crisp and refreshing. I got a bunch of recipes, including ones with cucumbers and rosemary off of Pinterest. Gotta love Pinterest, right?!

    1. I hope things can slow down a bit too - I'm not used to so much chaos or 'busy' days. I don't see how some people do it all. You should try the fruit water - it's awesome. And, Pinterest has some great recipes for cucumber and even rosemary infused waters - they're good, too.

    1. Thanks for the cool thoughts - we need them right now. It's 109 or so today and since we don't have a pool anymore, it's a bit more tough getting through the summers than it used to be!! :-)
