Weekly Winners: Jan 20-26


I'm posting my Weekly Winners a little early this week (although my post time is Sunday, it's REALLY only 8 p.m. on Saturday) because my internet connection has been so pathetically spotty that I'm not sure how long it will stay for me. (Someone wanna sign Lotus' Mr. Linky for me??)

Plus we check out of the hotel in the morning for another day of competition and then the drive home.

For the record, the girls did really well, with a few bobbles (expected since they were rechoreographing the routine merely hours before their performance time). The scores are cumulative for the two days, so I won't know anything until later in the day.

And what KILLS me completely is that I specifically charged my camera battery before I left ... and then somehow left the camera ON and it didn't go to "sleep" and so ... I ... have ... no ... photos. Dead camera. No charger. I'll have to order someone else's (professional) photos.

Nevertheless... I persevere for Lotus' Weekly Winners game. This week's are kind of Roo'ish-one-note.

My front door, the topic of Fun Monday this past week, was also front and center, along with my favorite model.

The mask:



She also jumped for joy:



Check out those muscular, cut upper arms!

And she reads, too:



But it always comes back to that front door:

I love the one of her jumping in contrast to the one of her reading. Love it!

But, my favorite is the first one. She looks like a Bionicle. LOL

Bigtime Bummer about the camera. :(

Great pictures!

Hey, we were gone this weekend too--for a gymnastics competition. We drove to Dallas. It was a great trip, but Na was not at her best this meet and those Texas girls are tough! But at least we got a trip to the Dallas World Aquarium in.

I don't play but I do visit :o) The first picture is too cool and I also love the one of her reading. She looks very into her book. Great pics!

Sarcastic Mom (aka Lotus) said...

The leaping shots are great, and that first one of her and the door is GREAT!

I would have hyperventilated with the dead cam situation. Congrats on still being alive! ;-)

Well I have Cleopatra on the brain from my latest book and that first door shot made me think of her.

Why are her hands red?

Suzanne said...

I'm with you - that door is fabulous. Though the expressions on her face are, too. :)
