JANUARY PHOTO SCAVENGER HUNT...2020.

Time again for our photo hunt linking up with the lovely Kate.  No the easiest this month for me, but here's what I came up with.

1.  LOST/FOUND.
This one (I think), I found the most difficult.  Not getting out much this month because of heat, fires etc., I'd not even really thought about the hunt.  Luckily I scoured both my archives and other bits'n'bobs & noticed this sitting in my library of DVDs.
A word for  "lost" and the "found" part is that I actually found something.

2.  PRINT/S.
A set of black & white prints my late mother-in-law gave me many years ago.  These are of Leeds & I framed them in certificate frames, which I felt suited them well & they have hung in our spare bedroom in each house we've lived in.

3.  LUNCH.
Lunch for a pair of King Parrots at our poor now defunct feeder, as the post rotted and fell down whilst we were away in UK last year.  We must resurrect it soon.  Their water bowl is still there & plenty of birds use it to drink.

4.  STARTS WITH M.....
OK, I couldn't make up my mind with this one, so all 3 have a place.
MOSS
The most sumptuous mossy wall.  This photo was taken on a walk in the Lakes District with my friend Jayne.
MALHAM COVE.
The gorgeous Malham Cove, somewhere I love.  I think I took this in 2014, when we said that we'd do the steps up the side next time we visited.  Sad to say, we've been back to UK twice and still not done them.
MORRIS MINOR.
Our beloved car with a rose arbour framing it.
Sorry about that lot, but this is what happens to a mad woman on a seering hot day of 40 degrees.
Ooh, it's yuk..............fires close to our son again in Canberra.... worrying times.

5.  ENDS WITH T.....
CRAFT.
And then---------------these all end with T too.  We have crochet, knit, quilt and woodcraft, which are my wool bowl & cute cat.  My 3 items are all in progress at the moment, though slowly as it's been hot & not comfortable to knit or crochet much.  The quilt has progressed from the photo last post to this and will be on the big machine before too long.

6.  MY OWN CHOICE.
OK, this was something I saw on the internet & thought about how some people have chosen a word for this year & this sort of fell into place for me.  I need a kick up the butt occasionally & I struggle feeling like I'm worthwhile, so I'm plucking up the "courage" to do something about it.  Maybe watch this space!
Enough of my waffling and I'm off to find a cooler spot  in the house, (no cooler outlet here in the study) and also prepare our evening meal of cold meat & salad.
Hope everyone has a great weekend, stay cool or warm wherever you live.
Take care & huggles from Susan.

  1. Oh Susan, you've been in my thoughts with all the awful news from Australia - I have freinds in Canberra too who said it's just been dreadful. But I hope you're coming out of the worst of it now.
    Fair play to you to get any crafting done in such heat and all your photos are great .... I particularly love the Mossy wall - that's a cooling photo - and the parrots. But I think I'm going to copy the Matisse saying - it's good having wee reminders to keep us on track on the days when we don't feel up to the challenges.
    STay cool, take care and see you next month. Fil

    1. Thank you Fil, and I owe you an email, which I'll try and do this weekend. Been too hot to do much, but I need to keep busy so a little of this'n'that gets done.

    1. Thanks Julie. Glad you like our little Moggy. We've had several over the years & my first car was a dusty green sedan in the 60's.

  4. You'll definitely have to get your bird feeder sorted out, it looks like it was well frequented, you're feathered friends will be missing it. I love Malham Cove, you will definitely have to climb the steps when you're over again, the view is amazing from the top.

    1. Thanks Jo. We are thinking of a better place maybe for the feeder & will put it up come autumn. Maybe if we come, we'll do the steps together?

  5. Some good photos there Susan. Hope it's cooler for you today, the cool change has arrived here, with a lovely downpour for the garden and the tank.

    1. Thanks Judy. Been hot and cooler since your comment, but then you'd know.............Had a little rain, but it seems to be missing us with the bigger amounts.

  6. So glad you found the energy to do the photo hunt. I often think of Australia these days and wish we could swap some of our rain/cold/damp for a bit (not all!) of your hot/dry weather. I am liking the look of your quilt; hope to see it finished. You've put together an interesting set of photos but my favourite is your Morris Minor, in my favourite colour too! Take care.

  8. Oh yes, you need to repair your bird feeder, those parrots are gorgeous.
    Such pretty colours in your quilt, that will be lovely when finished.
    I wish we could send you some of our cooler weather and rain!

  11. Hi, just found your blog, enjoyed it but couldn't find a "subscribe by email" button or "follow" button. My name is Susan also, I live in USA but my sister in law lives in Canada and was born in England with the last name of Smith. I just found that interesting.💖

    1. Thanks Susan. As I'm not too tech savvy, I'm not sure how to add an email/follow button. I have my list of followers on the side & know when their latest post comes up. Maybe I should try & learn a little more of how things work. Smith happens to be a very common name, but my DH was also born in the UK. I'll pop across to you blog soon & have a little look. thanks again.
