Motion (Day 103)



Just trying to capture some motion. I had to close the blinds to make the light low enough to not overexpose. I like how these turned out...

Clouds (Day 102)

Macro Flowers (Day 101)


Trying some nice flower pictures in macro.

New Sculptures (Day 100)




My parents came from WI and brought us these amazing metal sculptures! I love them. The bird (that A named Tweety!) is about 4 feet tall, and the flowers the same.

Rose (Day 99)


Just a nice bud on my rose. This rose is doing great, and I bought it at a grocery store on a whim. Most of the roses we spent any amount of money on are only doing OK...just goes to show, eh?

Leaves (Day 98)

Anna & the Bubbles (Day 96)



We had a wonderful evening just sitting outside blowing bubbles...she has never been so good at it before (every time she blew bubbles she would yell "I did it!" really loud!)

Waterfall (Day 95)


Spring is about water right...

Late Spring (Day 94)


Just a nice bloom

Zoo (Day 93)




Sicko (Day 92)


Both kids were sick all week...this is E in recovery mode, hanging out in Daddy's lap

Cambodian Mat (Day 91)


This is a great grass mat from a friend who live in Cambodia...it is perfect for picnics and playing outside with the kids!

The Kids (Day 90)



Just some nice outside time.

Fireworks (Day 85)

I rather feel as if I cheated today...these shots are from after the game last night, but I loved them and felt they deserved their own post.



Go ASTROS! (Day 85)

D and I got a date (it was his birthday gift a few weeks late!) We went o an Astro's game, which we both loved...tooo bad they lost!

The band that did the national anthem...I just loved the shadows as they walked off the field.


Part of our team..I love my 12X zoom...our seats were pretty high!


Just making that field pretty.


OK, the stadium was an old train station, so there is a train on some tracks up high...when we get a home run, the train rolls along. Never moved last night! Oh, and it is Minute Maid park, so the back fo the train is filled with oranges. You can't see that, but I did like the building in the background.

Worn out (Day 84)


E fell asleep in a floaty thing in a pool today...everyone said he looks like a teenager on spring break after a night of too much partying!

A Boy & His Toys (Day 83)



OK, really, it is A's toys...

The Car (Day 82)


OK, it is a toy (and I would never want a car quite like this...) but my daughter loves cars right now.

My Toys (Day 81)


Well, my favorite toy right now...my camera! Big suprise, eh? I had to use my video camera to take this picture, and it is less then ideal...oh well.

At the Car Wash (Day 80)


A helped us wash our cars today...she loves the soap suds!

Front Pot (Day 79)


I love how this pot turned out...as it is growing it just looks lovely!

Rose (Day 78)


I spent today trying to get some good flower pictures while playing around with manual settings on my camera (I want a SLR someday, so I am trying to get to know my camera forward and backwards first, so I can justify moving up.

Not sure how to do this one (Day 77)


The students I teach did amazing art works as part of their final project...do I post one of those (I took pictures of them all) or something related.
**So I decided I could not, in good faith, post one of their artworks. So...you get a picture of the textbook & the companion web site for my class. Oh, and the schedule of finals...cause you all want to know when I am giving my final!

Not a Food Product (Day 76)



I love my doggies! Two Cavalier King Charles Spaniels (Nutmeg & Mace, or Macey) Cute little buggers, aren't they? Nutmeg is on the top (almost 8 years old, she is our first "baby", and a little princess) and Macey is the bottom one (a little over 5, he is our slightly crazy, punk-dog.)

Food of the Gods (Day 75)


OK, so I still love fruit. But...there is Nutella. After 3+ years of not eating it (or anything with peanuts or peanut oil) I am soooo happy to have it again. On fruit (theme is back) or bread or really, just a spoon or my fingers!

Fruit (Day 74)


Now on to my food. I LOVE fruit. Almost anything...fresh is best, I love it by it self, with ice cream, in cobler, pie, crisp...there is no bad fruit (well, unless it is rotten, over ripe, or just plaine nasty!
