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.

Strawberries, Organic Vanana Yogurt, a banana, Organic Spring Mix

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.

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.
