Weekly Winners 21 2009

May 17th to 23rd Edition 21

We had a busy week and an even better weekend but it was over too soon ...
It has been cooler and rainy this week but last Sunday we were 'falling' in love with autumn.

can you see the rainbow ?
Olympic Cauldron converted into a fountain ...

What I didn't take pictures of ...
  • The heavy rain pouring down ...the washing ... not complaining, just saying ...
I pray for the safety of those affected by floods and the strength they will need to deal with the massive cleanup.
  • The mess S & J made being inside 24/7 instead of outside...but guess where we went today and now the toys are all organised.

  • The crowds in IKEA. I have never seen so many people in a store like we did in IKEA - it will lead the ecomony forward - the checkouts were so long.
  • The people I saw at dusk walking the hugest billy goat on a dog lead, along with their fox terrier and the tiniest tiny Chihuaua dog. I didn't realise till we were right alongside them the huge beast was a goat LOL. I am going to stalk the streets since they told me they take the goat out often.
  • My little puddle jumpers ... next time !

I wish I had more time to play and edit my photos (better or even at all) ... hopefully next term I will get to my photography course.

Remember Weekly Winners is a meme to show off your favourite snaps of the week ,
not a competition so anyone can join in the fun ...

I love the wonderful colors of fall. Lovely shots for this week.

I really need one of those organizers too.

Little Apple said...

I love seeing fall happening when summer is approaching here. Fascinating. And the organization is inspiring...I'm supposed to get that done this week on my non-vacation vacation.

Jaime said...

It is facinating that it is Fall there and Summer is just beginning cool.

I love the Ikea bookshelf. I want one of those for our toy room. We just have to go there.

I love the shot of throwing the leaves up in the air. Fantastic.

pickel said...

Ikea is always busy like that. Crazy huh?
Beautiful pictures.

Villagepig said...

I almost choked on my rose when I saw that picture! Clearly Ikea has their market pegged because we have that exact same unit in our playroom right down to the baskets at the bottom and the clear containers in each cubby!

Such a small world after all :-)


p.s. very glad that you guys remain ok and unaffected by the rains. Truly hope that it remains that way!

Secret Mom Thoughts said...

I'm jealous of how tidy your toys are. Love the fall shots.
