The subject of the Round Robin this time is "water", and I had to get pictures of my kitty Socksie drinking the water out of the kitchen faucet. I got three of them, and two show her tongue lapping it up. One just has her near the water. She loves to drink out of it!
For more pictures of water, go to the Round Robin Photo Challenge blog, where you will find links to a lot of blogs participating. If you would like to do the same, you are welcome!

This weeks Ellipsis Monday Photo Shoot has the theme, "Houses of Worship". Here is a shot of my church, Zion Mennonite, in Hubbard, Oregon.
This is a cute little church in Hawaii, on Maui, when Steve (God rest his soul) and I went riding around that island in November of 1992.

I'm a bit late (try 2 days) in posting to the Round Robin Photo Challenge, with the Candlelight theme. Here are two of my favorite candles, all lit and glowing. The first was given to me by my son Tony, daughter-in-law Kamie, and grandsons Michael and Alex for Christmas. This is the first time I've burned it. The outside itself isn't wax; it contains a votive that burns.
The second is from my friend Linda and was for my birthday and Christmas last year, I believe. I have burned it once in a while. It is scented, "Sun and Sand" and is lovely. It's from the Yankee Candle Company. Yum!
Go to the Round Robin Photo Challenge -- Candlelight to see the many lovely entries.
Carly at Ellipsis wants to see pictures of winter landscapes in this Monday's photo shoot. Thankfully, I took a picture when it was snowing briefly a couple of weeks ago and here it is.
Since it's an El Nino year, we're not getting much snow here in the Pacific Northwest, at least in Northwestern Oregon, so I had to take the shot while the snow was there. It isn't very heavy but the thin layer is apparent on the lawn.
To see more winter landscapes, go to the link in the first sentence and follow the URL's in the comments. It's fun -- you may even want to participate! You would be welcome!

Today I am posting this week's entry for Ellipsis Monday Photo Shoot, sponsored by Carly of the blog Ellipsis. The theme this week is "weather," and we are to post pictures of the weather where we are right now. We can post a shot of our favorite weather for extra credit, but I'm not sure I have a picture of that. How do you show sunny and 73 degrees? LOL! Here is the weather now, though. The first was taken going down a deserted country road near my house and is of the windshield wiper swiping the rain. The second is of the rain-soaked driveway at my house, taken from in the garage.

Hooray, the Round Robin Photo Challenge is back! There has been a brief hiatus during the holidays but we're up and running again.
The theme this time is "Roots", and I have taken that two different ways. The first is roots as in those found in a tree. My trees don't show too many roots, though. This picture was the best I could get.
The second way I took it was roots as in ancestors, and I have provided a link in the following sentence to a picture I posted on Flickr of my paternal grandparents, Josephine and Charles McClellan.
