I can’t believe it took me so long to start responding to the Weekly Photo Challenges.  All those challenges unanswered.

This week is home.   The WordPress Weekly Challenge allows me to go through some archived files and think about the theme.

What I’m drawn to. What caught my eye.

No shortage of photos to post for home this week.

When I drive into my driveway after work I feel I am truly home.  What makes you feel at home?

The gallery option isn’t really cooperating for me today. (Ooops. I read in the article  Are You Boring? Seven Tips for Knowing if You ‘re Boring Someone  on the Happiness Project  blog by Gretchen Rubin to never  mention computer problems)

  2. A great collection, Ruth. How you culled your photos to just these relatively few is beyond me.

    • You don’t want to go overboard and scare readers away. Have them run from the computer screen yelling ENOUGH ALREADY! But John, you are so right. I could post a “home” post a day for the next ten years and not run out of photos. (I never even got to the food ones)

    I feel “home” when after a long trip I hit turnpike exit number 57. Then I know I’m home.

  15. What a great assortment. I love how Murphy is on the floor with the kid, while a smaller dog appears to be in the bed behind him. Also, about that decorated front yard, what can I say… we love our inflatables. I do think that could have been taken in our neck of the woods. You know what they say, home is where the giant nutcracker inflatables are.

    • You are so observant. That is Cleo the Italian Greyhound who belongs to ERika’s Mom and Dad. It seems the elder dog gets the bed.
      When Murphy stayed with Penny (Laura and James’ dog) He got the bed and Penny slept on the floor.
