Man, It's May!

May 1 - Well last month I was consumed with the A to Z Challenge and except for 4 letters, I finished.

 I may still go back and add those missing letters.  They were: Q - I was going to use "Quit Playing Games With My Heart" by the Backstreet Boys; S - I was going to use Sade; V - I was going to use Van Halen; W - Who else but the Who?  I have most of the pictures but I did not get the scrapbook pages made and since my theme was scrapbooking the concerts we've seen, I didn't think that just adding the pictures was right.  I have started my "Reflection Post" for next Monday and then it will be time to think of the theme for next year!

But, I have also been keeping up with my 365 pictures and here are a few of my favorites that I took during last month, in no particular order:


My husband helped me get a picture of the full moon.  The times I tried to get it, there were too many clouds because it was raining during those couple of days. 

I Googled Rod Stewart for some information and I was excited to see that MY blog posts on him were #'s 2 and 3, following his official site!  I'm not sure that means much to anyone but I found it kinda cool - so I took a picture of the computer screen.  The same thing happened when I Googled Tina Turner. 


We went into San Francisco for dinner one night and we saw the Bay Bridge with its flashing lights.  I love the way it looks on this rainy night.


Shopping at Safeway I came across this shelf full of flavored waters.  They look so pretty with their different fresh fruits in the bottles.  All different flavors.  I haven't tried them yet, they just looked pretty.


Also while shopping I found this new treat!  They have a couple of different flavors but the Cinnamon Churro sounded the best.  It was QUITE tasty I must say!  There were not that many calories in it either, even though there is sugar.  Four marshmallows for 80 calories.  I usually only ate two at a time because I am not used to eating too much sugar anymore and that was just enough.


We went to our first baseball game of the season and it was a great one!  Our Giant's haven't been doing too well but they won in dramatic fashion in extra innings that night.  I got my exercise in by walking around the stadium since we got there early, in addition to walking to the train station and back.  Of course, I did have to have peanuts while we were there, but I stayed away from the garlic fries.

When I am doing my scrapbooking and listening to music I turn the iTunes visualizer on and every once in a while I catch a shot of the fascinating scenes.  Maybe that's why it takes me so long to make my pages - looking at the computer screen instead of crafting?


Have to include my May selfie.  This is me in my scrap room.  It is my happy face in my happy place. 

Some of the pictures were of my A to Z layouts so I'm not including those here since I know you've been following me and have seen them :)

So, how about you?  Survive the A to Z?  Taken any interesting pictures this month?  Love to hear about them.


  1. I take very few pictures myself, but I enjoyed browsing yours with you. You really should go back and add those four posts as you complete each in your scrapbook. Then you will also have a virtual scrapbook here!

    1. Yes, Barbara, I agree. I am going to make the pages anyway because that's what I do so why not put them here? Thanks for stopping by!

  2. You can always do the last four letters at your leisure...

    1. Yep, that's what I'm gonna do. It will keep the A to Z alive - Maybe during the Road Trip? Are we doing that again this year?
