Friday Shoot-Out - Paint The Town Red... in my case Paint The House Red. I wasn't able to get out and about town and take pictures... most of the week the lighting has been awful with clouds in and out and yesterday rain in and out. I had fun finding things that I enjoy in my home.
First I looked in my kitchen... first thing I thought of was Campbell's Soup. They make such a souper supper :-)
This is a picture I took a few years back. It was taken in Turtle Park which is at our River Front Park. I had a very fun day that day.... even though its is the day my camera died. The colors in the camera went haywire... which even going through my editing program you can see here. It only got worse. Sony repaired it for free... shipping and all.
Then there are canned stewed tomatoes that can be whipped up into a lot of quick dishes. I like the Del Monte brand better, but my pocketbook likes the Great Value brand.
Then there is ketchup. Frank likes ketchup better than I... I put it on fries so I can swallow them :-) I also use it in recipes.
Then there are a couple of tomatoes sitting on the counter ready to be sliced and eaten.
My favorite snack with cheese is Ritz Whole Wheat Crackers.
Frank's mother painted this design of strawberries on a cutting board for me and it hangs on the kitchen wall.
I made some potholders out of fabric with a strawberry theme. I made an apron too. I just cannot for the life of me remember where I put it... I want to hang it in the kitchen again... a little decor.
In our travels I've collected a Rock City Gardens plate and lighthouse salt & pepper shaker set. They always catch my eye when I look at my collections of this n' that.
I bought this balloon for Frank on Valentine's Day in 1993. It seems the balloon is going to stay inflated forever. I love seeing its words each day. Sometimes you don't think you can love a person any more than the day you married them.... but my love grows each day for my Sweetheart.
When we go for a medical test or one of us has to stay overnight in a hospital this Coca Cola bag accompanies us. It will hold reading material, puzzle book and snacks. When we go on trips it may hold camera accessories. It is serving us well.
This is an item I almost gave away. I don't wear it anymore and don't know why I keep it. I prefer pjs to night gowns. It is pretty, silky and shiny and I do like those qualities.
This is an older picture. It is of a gumball machine that I like. No those aren't gumballs they are chinese checker marbles. I have the machine filled about halfway up with them. The machine is in the back bedroom (the bedroom is being packed up for renovations later this year... maybe) and it is a bit hard to get to the machine for a picture.
Frank has highlighted our trip routes in this Road Atlas. I'm hoping soon that he will be highlighting more routes.
For a list of more bloggers participating in this challenge go to Friday Shoot-Outs . The list is located over on the right-hand side. I now understand the rules better and next week I should do better with the subject matter of water for next week's challenge. Patty has done a blog to explain the rules at Friday "My Town" Shoot-Out and tells how it all started.
Y'all have a great weekend!
