Weekly Winners Sunday 6/1/08

Weekly Winners, hosted by Lotus.

Click for larger images (because they do look better full-sized) or take a peek at the entire album at once and/or watch as a slideshow at this link.

Original Recipe
(I rarely create my own recipes, but I did create this one:
Maggie's Super Healthy Cilantro Lime Chicken Salad Pita Sandwich
It's no cook, summer friendly and guilt-free, too!)

Scene Strolling Part One and Two

Scene Strolling Part Three and Four

The Strolling Made Me Need Coffee
(mug gifted to me by my Dear Friend J when he visited in September)

Oil Change Series Part One: Out(side) of Coffee
(It may *look* like a coffee shop, but it's part of the place where I got my oil changed. It took 2 bloody hours. Two. Hours. I was bored to hot and salty tears. Thankfully, they had some nice scenery. Thankfully I *never* leave home without my camera. Thankfully I didn't splurge on the oil change place version of a supposed latte because my $20 oil change turned into $70)

Oil Change Series Part Two and Three
Table and Chair

Oil Change Series Part Four...
(I got odd looks standing on a bench getting this shot. Remember, I was at the damn oil change place, not some garden park or wherever this would seem perfectly normal. Whatev. Got me some Winners.)

...and Part Five

The Carwash
(that comes free with the $20 $70 every oil change)


  1. What interesting scenery around your oil change place! At least you got some cool photos. Love the carwash!

    My saving grace? I take my car to the dealer. They have free WiFi.

  2. I love the part five flower - it looks so much like autumn!

    I love the scenic walk shots too - very pretty!

  3. hey are great! I love the window with the reflection, ( I always love reflections!) and the violet, and I stroll around with my camera everywhere too, but in some places it's more obvious than others, I agree.

    This week, I'll be the one making you hungry, so be prepared!

  4. Great pictures! I love the flowers in strolling scenes part 3.

  5. The pita, the mug, the coffee shop sign (have you heard the song Falling in Love at the Coffee Shop by Landon Pigg yet?), the car wash....all of it just perfect!

    I was wondering if you'd come to Atlanta to make me some yummy pitas? I'll make some iced coffee and baklava!

  6. Loved those!

    That pansy is such a pretty color and the car wash reminded me of being a kid and driving through...what fun.

  7. You made me hungry and want a really sweet coffee.
    Your work here is done ;-)

    So how are ya doin this weekend girlie?

    Prepared for another week of being the leader of the ex-smoking brigade?

  8. Great pictures! I loved that coffee shot (pun intented). I'm just making some coffee here in my hotel room!

    Thanks for dropping by!

  9. Beautiful ♥ them all - car wash is cool and part 5

  12. Hey Maggie, nice pictures.
    Shame about the oil change. $70? That's just crazy.

    I'm still smoke free, day 16. You even inspired me to start my own blog about it. I figure it helped you so maybe it'll help me too.

    I hope you have a good Sunday.

  13. The pansies are beautiful! Great photos this week!!

  15. such great pics! thanks for visiting my site. I enjoyed yours as well.

  16. That Pita looks SO good and I'm SO hungry.
