Thankful…

Below is a little gem I found on twitter today: I am thankful for… – the taxes I pay because it means that I am employed. – The clothes that fit a little too snug because it means I have enough to eat. – My shadow who watches me work because it means I am…

Looking Like Fall

I cannot figure it out, but there are costumed scarecrows all along my route to work. There are so many themes…baseball players, cheerleaders, super heroes, Buzz Lightyear, pirates, you name it. But this Wizard of Oz set is my favorite. …and on the other side of the street is the Wicked Witch and some ruby-red…

Belly Ache?

This lovely furry friend appeared to rest and sunbathe on the other side of our fence this afternoon. I can only assume that chewing off the top of one of our planks tuckered him out and gave him some belly troubles. Argh. Sure hope this destructive little critter turns out to be a Rally Squirrel…

This Life is a Good One

This life is a good one. Enjoy it. — Jim Henson An oh-gawd-o’clock appointment had me feeling a bit fuzzy, anxious and disheveled this morning. I fumbled around the house on autopilot, but ultimately stumbled out the door on time. As soon as I was out the door, however, I knew something was a little…

I’m in awe of her garden not only because it’s gorgeous, but because it’s thrived in spite of having to endure the hottest, driest, most…

Do you have a clue as to what is the purpose of this big guy? I can’t imagine why someone would want a dragon guarding their sidewalk “moat”, but I do know one thing. Weirdness like this is why you will always find a camera in my car on the seat next to me. You…

Yes, I see you.

This sweet thing posed outside my office window for the longest time. After watching him tilt and turn his curious little head around for several minutes, I finally picked up my camera and obliged him. (Don’t you love the little green buds by his feet?) My office is like being in a tree house. It’s…

A Look Outside

Growing up, our house was plunked in the middle of several thickly wooded acres way out in the middle of nowhere. As an adult, I’m plunked in the suburbs with neighboring houses within view out of literally every window. Guess who has the better bird watching? Maybe it’s simply because I didn’t pay attention when…
