My February Photo Hunt

Whew, got it done!  Here I am, a day before my own deadline finishing and posting my photo hunt.

I’m guessing many of you noticed that I chose words that could be interpreted in more than one way.  With this list of mine, I chose to take the “silly” route with many of my shots.  I couldn’t bear the idea of just one meaning of those words! Have a look:
flake

Flake with some flakes (we got a little dusting overnight last night; the snow has already disappeared)

bow

Taking a bow with a bow

mug

Mugging with a mug ( I kind of like that shot – maybe I’ll make it my new avatar)

row2

Rowing over a row (the girls are playing the canoeing game on Wii Sports Resort and I told them to look like they were fighting over it)

bun

Eating a bun with a bun

hearts

Hearts in an unusual place.  I was hoping to get more shots for this, but the month got away from me.  These are paper hearts sold at my school for the American Heart Association.

Bonus:

leap

Sarah demonstrates her leaping skills.  I wish I had remembered to set a faster shutter speed to stop the action here!  It looked pretty clear the little screen on the camera, and by the time I saw my leaper on the computer, she was gone for the day to a friend’s house, so no re-do.  I’ll see if I can coax a re-do for Leap Day next week!

I’m looking forward to seeing your photo hunts!  If you are someone who is running out of time but still wanted to try to do the hunt, go ahead, take the weekend to finish! Just don’t forget to leave me a link on the original hunt post.  The slacker blogger can cut you some slack! 😉

Just a quick hello from me this morning.  I have to report to you all that I feel like a big slacker!  It has been an odd week around here.  Would you believe I haven’t taken the photos for my own photo hunt (due tomorrow!) ?  I know what I want to take for photos but I just haven’t done it yet.  To those of you who have already submitted, I think you know that I prefer not to look at your hunts until I’ve completed my own, so I will need a little time before I come around to have a peek! 🙂

It was a weird week because it was supposed to be February break from school.  It was for my daughters, but not for the school district I work for.  We had to make up snow days from that crazy snow storm back in October.  I’m used to having this week off to prepare for Meghan’s birthday party, which we traditionally have on the Saturday at the end of the vacation week.  Luckily, I do have today off from work, so I’ll be using it, in addition to doing my own photo hunt, to shop and clean the house in preparation for tomorrow.

We also squeezed in our very first college visit this week, to help Meghan in her preparation for deciding which colleges to apply to.  I brought my camera along on our visit to Stonehill College in Easton, MA but decided I just didn’t feel right whipping it out as we walked through the lovely campus.  There were even swans on a little pond on the campus and the sun was low and glowing… it took a lot of my will to not stop and take pictures and keep up with the tour!

I’ve been slacking in responding to comments and commenting at your blogs too!  I hope to rectify that very soon.

Here, have some cookies to make up for my slackerliness:
