p.s. I really have to remember to take the sunnies off for pictures…two days in a row I’ve had both them and the hat on for shots. Sheesh!
Sitting in the backyard, the golden setting sun warm on my shoulder and my legs tucked up underneath me, I sip my cold, crisp white wine. My husband is mowing the lawn while my baby girl squeals as she chases the dog who’s running for his dear life in fear of sticky fingers clutching his ears. Right now, right here life is good.
We’re working on trying to reclaim the yard from the weeds and clovers that the former owners let run wild. Every year we win one more battle. This year I dug out a lot of the monster weeds that threatened to invade our yard last summer. I’m hoping that if I’m vigilant they will be slowly snuffed out. Soldiers! Shovels at the ready!
|Can you tell I was very impressed with Husband’s witty banter?
Here’s what I’m thankful for:

It’s raining! It’s pouring! Drake the Dog is snoring! No really, he is. Husband is away and Drake has been sleeping on the bed with me – the guy not only snores, but moans and yips in his sleep too. I don’t know what’s going on in his head at night but it’s clearly something exciting.
Since it is really coming down here today, and I’m feeling extremely lazy I’m posting some pics from two days ago when it was sunny and nice and I could take pictures outside. I just don’t have any place indoors with good lighting. And natural light is always best I think.
Also, I’ve been watching Terra Nova and even though it’s kind of cheesy and predictable sometimes *a lot actually* I’m really liking it. I think it’s something about any tv show with dinosaurs getting an automatic pass from me….that and aliens. I loooove me some cool green men. *that sounds wrong, but you know what I mean* What do you guys think of it?

Some days I just don’t have a lot to say about things. Shocking I know. I’ve been crazy busy organizing things and working on stuff, so I haven’t really had a lot of time to reflect. The only thing I have to say is that I love mixing prints. It’s something I’ve never experimented with before and now I’m addicted.
But right now, I’m gonna turn it over to you. Tell me what you’re pondering today.

Yesterday was the ten year anniversary of 9/11. And I have a memory of that day that will stand out to me forever. Every channel had been playing and replaying the footage, and there was news streaming non-stop on the TV. About three hours after it happened, I went out to a local bulk/health food store to get some much needed groceries. So, I remember being in the store and getting what I need while the little store TV is softly replaying the footage. And I overhear some patron complain about how his day is ruined because all his shows have been pre-empted and all that’s on the TV is the same thing over and over again.
As humans we can be so incredibly self-centered. It makes me sad.

Here’s why I love fashion: You can be endlessly creative with it. You can nip, tuck, pin, twist, tie, belt, and loop to you hearts content and create an ever varying assortment of outfits. And one of my fave things is the miraculous ability of maxi skirts to become dresses just by nipping a belt around your waist.
And though you’re probably tired of seeing my summer staples – large sunglasses and a wide brim hat – I’m loving them. Sun protection hound that I am, I wear both these things and SPF 45 on my face. What can I say? I rock the pasty white look.
