8/7/10 - View from the Tall Ships on Daily Duluth Photo

This was a photo I took while on the Tall Ship Roseway.  It was a beautiful sunset and a fun ride on the ship.  It was so quiet!  All you could here was the conversations going on and the occasional buzz of the margarita machine (it was made from a weed waker engine).   For more Tall Ship  photos you can go to my flickr site.

5/23/10 - KC and Thunderstorms.....

Most of you know that KC was rescued from a railroad yard by Andy when she was just a little puppy. Probably due to that, KC doesn't like loud noises - guns, fireworks, loud airplanes and thunder. Tonight we had a big thunderstorm (the kind where I tend to let out a little yelp, myself, at the big ones). We had really heavy rain off and on the whole time the last episode of Lost was on. Well, KC was very nervous - pacing from one spot to another - like she was trying to find a place to hide. I went into my computer room and right by my feet is Tica's little bed that she lies in when I am on the computer. KC followed me into my room and looked up at me so sad - I sat down and she proceeded to try to fit into Tica's little bed - she did manage to get about 1/2 of her body there and the rest on the floor - but she was ok, must feel safe there. Was really very cute. Tica was on the couch with Mark and seemed oblivious to the storm.

Daily Duluth Photo for 5/23/10

My photo was picked for the Daily Duluth Photo today. This was taken on the lakewalk last summer when TCS and his family were home. We met at Leif Erickson park and then Mom, Dad, Diane, Danielle and I walked to Canal Park where I took this photo.

Another photo picked - Daily Duluth Photo!

Here is another photo I took that won the 'Daily Duluth Photo' contest for today.  This was from last fall when Mark and I went fishing on the St. Louis River.  As the sun was setting, guess what I was doing - not fishing!

4/25/10 - More Kitchen Updates

After getting our new table and chairs, I needed something for the wall where the China Hutch was. Diane had the perfect thing - an old radio/stereo cabinet that she updated. It works great there and I thought the ski with the vintage family photos would be a great addition to the wall there. This is the final result - I like it.

April 2010 - Spring is here!

I love spring! I love the new green, the new buds, the colors, the flowers, the rain, the smell of fresh cut grass, the smell and sound of a thunderstorm (as long as the thunder isn't too close, as my family knows!). I just love spring!

I was on my way home from our Ashland office and saw this -
I love the fresh green of the new leaves against the aged pines!

4/22/10 - Tica's first haircut

Tica got her first haircut today - I'm still trying to decide if it makes me happy or sad - maybe both.  Her ears and face look so cute, but most of her dark fluffy, fly-away fur is gone.  She is a little lighter and very, very skinny!  We need to fatten her up!
