Patterns in Nature

Ok, so I have a new obsession.  The natural occurrence of beautiful, ornate patterns in living things.  So here is my second shot in this "series".  The first being the blue jay feather.

New space

I set up a new space in the basement today.  It's much bigger than my old office and I can use it for shooting too.  I am pretty happy with it.  We are going to rip out the rug and put in flooring at some point, but for now, it works.  I also need to make a trip to IKEA to get some stuff to cozy it up a bit more.

Continental Breakfast

Made a smoothie for breakfast this morning.  It's tasty but it looks kind of putrid.  It's my continental breakfast.  Get it?  Pssst...it's on a map placemat.  Ooooh.  You got it, it just wasn't that funny.  Hey, I tried.

Decorating

I have been collecting objects for several months now and stashing them in a bag on the floor of my closet.  I finally had time to take everything out and arrange it on the wall.  I used some of my photos and some of Violet's art in the frames.  A lot of the stuff was found at thrift stores or TJ Maxx, Marshalls, ebay, Savers.  I'm happy with how it turned out.  This wall is in our dining room.  Now to get started on another wall in the house.

Pizza night




I've been getting into making my own pizza.  The kids really love it and it's easy.  I even make the dough.  Tonight we had chicken & broccoli and steak, red bell pepper, portobello mushroom, red onion and blue cheese.

SUMMER!

Some photos from our vacation in Maine.  We had so much fun swimming in the lake, going to story land and just relaxing with the family.  Here are just some of the highlights.


Dad catches the big one.  Ok, well.  Maybe not the biggest one.

Luna smiled a lot.


This cake was delicious.


The boys and grampy scope out which piece they want.


Twins!  Rich and Rob turn 70!


Grammy comes through with the knife.  Look out!


Tia chills on the dock.


The cousins contemplate life.


"I think I like swimming"


Auntie Claudia warms up the pup.



When there is only a shower, sometimes it is necessary to improvise.

Moose!  The Maine Wildlife Park.  A great day trip located in Gray, Maine.

the new normal

It's been 15 days since my last radiation treatment. I'm feeling so much better.  Last weekend I did something kind of stupid, but I don't regret it.  We got a puppy.  Her name is Luna.  We brought her home from the Northeast Animal Shelter.  She's from West Virginia and she is mostly lab with a little hound.  That is where she gets her long legs and ears.  She is so much work, but it's going to be great.

I have also been getting back into the swing with work, which is nice.  I am not going back to Mullen.  I'll be freelancing instead.  So I am going to need a new logo, website...lots to do.  I preordered the Canon 5d mark III.  I can't wait for that to come in!  I have a shoot scheduled for next week, so let's hope it gets here in time.

Here's the pooch.

6 to go

It's getting old. But I am almost finished. Only side effects so far are fatigue and skin redness. Can't complain.
This picture is at the desk where I check in every morning at 7 am.
