Macroday - Stuffed Animal

This week on macroday the theme is stuffed animal.  We have so many stufed animals in our house that the decision should have been difficult to make, but I am always so sentimental and the first animal that came to mind was my old bear, Daewoo.  Wierd name I know, but when I was a kid I used to name my stuffed animals based on the tags.  I would take the animal to my mom or dad and ask them what the animals name was while holding the tag up for them to see (those darn things had to be the name tags right?!).  This bear happened to be manufactured by Daewoo, so that is the name he received.  He is well loved, as you can all see, and still has a very special place in my heart.  He may be missing his nose, have scratched eyes and be downright ugly, but he is one of the best old friends I can think of.

Shutterday - boats

I wanted to go with a not so typical boat picture for Shutterday's boat theme.  My husband and I honeymooned in Maui and as we were driving through town we saw this boat that had obviously been stranded on the reef.  It was just an amusing site to see this boat sitting sideways on the water with all the other boats in the background sitting upright and knowing that it was not safe to come that close to shore.

Written Inc. - Goodbye Winter

Winter is such a strange season for me here in Southern California.  We don't really have a typical winter.  No snow, very little rain, and the weather is pretty mild.  All in all it is actually quite pleasant.  That is why I found this theme for Written Inc. quite difficult.  Goodbye winter for me is not something I really feel the need for most of the time.  It is enjoyable to wear pants a few months out of the year and fun to wear sweaters every now and then.  SO in looking through all of my pictures I felt that this one best typified the winters I am so used to, naked trees with beautiful skies.

Moody Monday - Watery

This week's Moody Monday theme is watery.  So since I am a true southern Californian water is something that my world revolves around.  I had a hard time deciding which photo to use, so although I know the rules say one submission, I am posting two here and you all can decide which you like the best.  Both are kids and water, two of my most favorite things.

Thursday Challenge - Small Animals

I don't usually do the Thursday Challenge but the theme Small animals caught my eye this week.  I have always loved taking pictures of small living things, and although this one is quite large for a bee, it is quite small in the rest of the world.  I loved the vibrant color of his wings, I just had to have his picture.
