follow that truck!

we passed a Pepsi truck in Tennessee, which made me happy. The truck driver did not look amused.

it's all about the bag

My latest creation - a tote bag. I'll be using this one for groceries....or work. I could use a decent bag to carry stuff to the office.


The pattern we followed for our tote bags can be found on

cat walk

We took a walk in our yard during my lunch hour. Chloe is an indoor cat so she goes outside only on a leash (harness) or in her carrier.

so happy!

It was a beautiful day, so I brought Oliver (and Sophie, not pictured) over to enjoy it!

lots of colors

I normally think feet are gross, but I liked all of the colors I had at this moment. Yellow, green and "Jamaican Out" :)

everyone needs Alice

I received my first order from Alice, and I agree with the box...


No, not the most creative photo, but what an awesome service.

rain on the way

Hopefully we'll get enough rain to make the gardens and flowers happy.

the cube.

I bought this cat cube for Chloe at Target (gotta love clearance.) The picture on the box shows cute cats playing inside, and hiding inside the cube. My cat clearly missed the memo and chose to lay on top of the cube. (She still plays with the feather toy, but from the top of the cube, rather than inside it.)

The look on her face says it all.


She lives such a tough life.

happy dog

Oliver and Sophie came over to play this afternoon. Oliver was pretty happy to be getting one-on-one attention from me and the husband. (Sophie wasn't on the porch when this was taken.)

A new resting place

Chloe thinks it's fine to nap on my Women's Health magazine. On top of my nightstand. (She also sees no problem in sleeping on my glasses, cell phone or alarm clock when they're on the nightstand.)

spring-like trees

best friends.

I like to think that Oliver and Sophie are best friends. Where one goes (Oliver), the other follows (Sophie.)

two dogs and a girl

Sure it's just shadows, but I love how my shadow is tall and thin. And I love how you can kind of see Oliver's ears perk up (he's on the left.)

my goofy husband

Photo taken tonight during a walk through our neighborhood. The settings were a little off on my camera. I realized it when I downloaded the photo. Oops.

spring tree

I think today is the 100th day and 100th picture. (It is 100 if my post number is correct!) I really like this one, too. The tree in my back yard is blooming.

weeds or flowers?

The yard was mowed five days ago. Yet we have weeds all over the place. Even more disturbing is the shadow my camera created with the blade of grass in the center of the photo.

someone was jealous

My husband stumbled across my photo blog a couple of weeks ago and commented on the fact that I haven't taken any photos of him lately.

So here he is.


And do you see who left my side to be closer to him?

This post should clearly be titled "Jealous" and nothing more.

the floor is cooler

When I realized I hadn't taken a picture today (and it was after 10 p.m.) I went looking for the cat.


The temperature has been in the 80s this week, and we haven't turned the air conditioning on. It's supposed to get back to the 60s tomorrow (and lower) so we were holding out (because we're cheap.) Chloe has been spending a lot of time sleeping on the floor, rather than curled up on a chair, bed or blanket. She's so hot.

And let's just ignore the dust/dirt underneath that bed. I'll sweep this weekend.

a walking lunch break

I left my desk at lunchtime and went a different way around the Grove Arcade. This way gave way to a view of the Basilica. I really love my city.

allergy flare-up

The trees are pretty, but they're murder on my allergies. This tree is in front of my mom's house.

Mercedes, the cat

This is Mercedes, my in-law's cat. She's roughly 20 years old. And I caught her with her tongue out...she does that often, so it didn't have to be the fastest shot.

back to reality

After a week in Hawaii, I arrived home and the husband and I had this fancy dinner on our back porch:

one of my favorites

I was asked to leave the property right after I shot this photo this week. There were no signs saying that I couldn't be in that grass, but I was still told to leave. Glad I at least got this shot though:
