Seven Pieces of Sea Glass
Published on Saturday, September 7, 2013 by Katherine
Day seven of the Bob photo challenge requires us to illustrate “seven.”
Sea glass is increasingly hard to find on our beaches. With the introduction of plastic, fewer pieces of glass get smoothed by the sand and waves.
The rarest pieces are red, purple and blue. This makes my cob...
Two Birds, One Stone
Published on Friday, September 6, 2013 by Katherine
Day six of the Ziva Mike photo challenge asks us to portray Two Birds, One Stone.
I made a special trip to Taco Bell for this, as it is the only place I know where you can get a spork. And my son? He got a free meal!

Funny story, these damn mushrooms.
When Ziva and Mike first announced this photo contest, I began to think of ideas. You can imagine my thrill upon noticing GIANT, GORGEOUS, TALL and MAJESTIC mushrooms growing under my neighbor’s mailbox while on my way to work.
“As soon as I get h...

If you know anybody that participates in Urban Exploring, become his or her friend. Because you just may receive an occasional gift or two collected from an old abandoned building. Just like this china doll head...

Day one of the evil Ziva and MikeWJ 30 Days of Photographs IV, also known as Bob. (Although I thought Bob was what you call a guy with no arms and no legs in the water…)
I asked MikeWJ if I would get points for starting this challenge with a 101 temperature, bronchitis, a low blood ox...

Outrageous winds and strong currents meant no swimming or fishing this weekend.
My son asked if I could take some pictures of him skimming. “I never bring my camera on the beach honey. I am afraid sand will ruin it. And with this wind…..”
“Mom, I only feel sand blowing six ...
I Am A Butt Face

Half asleep, I shuffled in to the kitchen and plugged in the coffee pot. Looking down, I found my daughter had left a note for me on the counter. Squinting, I read the following:

Was it shark week that fashioned the series of events leading up to the Corolla Baby Toss last weekend? Or was it the meteor shower. Or a perhaps a combination of both?

As you have heard me whine for about three months, winds an...

Every weekend I hear the truck slowly making its way through the neighborhood. Roarrrrr…. Screech…. Ka THUNK! You can usually smell the truck before it turns the corner.
I have always had great respect for the trash collectors in the Outer Banks. I walk by Saturday’s filled tr...

…. Or maybe you will.
A few weeks ago, I got sick. Very, very sick. WHO gets sick during the summer?! ME, APPARENTLY!
With me, a cold always leads to a sinus infection. For more than ten days I was coughing, aching, weak and was having a difficult time breathing. After day ...
