It's time for Sunday Selections!
Sunday Selections is a weekly meme hosted by River at Drifting Through Life.
The rules are very simple:-
1. post photos of your choice, old or new, under the Sunday Selections title
2. link back to River somewhere in your post
3. leave a comment on River's post and visit some of the others who have posted and commented

More from the paper. I enjoy this word challenge, but today I can only see one word here, can you?
How was your week?
