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!
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.
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!
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!
This is where they hope to build this summer. They will have a view of Lake Superior - especially from the main and upper floors. Their neighbors would be their friends. We stopped there to see Rachel and her kids (and toys).TCS had fun with all the toys and playing with the girls. On the way out, we saw one of his very favorites - a backhoe - Digger Darrel! Then we went to lunch at the Burrito Union before the kids had to leave. We will see them again in July!
TCS went to bed at 6:30, sleep at 6:40 (he talked to 'kitty' for a while', woke up once in the night - gave him kitty to hug and he went back to sleep, then woke up at 6:30 am. I was up with the dogs at 6:00 and just waiting for TCS to wake up. Took him out of the crib and he had 'kitty' - told him we had to put kitty back, so he gave kitty a big hug! He loves his kitty and is so good about going to bed and nap because he gets to hug kitty! Then, our big day started! We had lots of fun again! He loves the doggies, the blocks, the rocking chair, the little piano, his 'beattle car, his bath time, bubbles, his deck chair and his grocery cart from Grandma Mo's. Grandma and Grandpa H. came to see him shortly before they came to get him. It was such a fun day!
I love the challenge of getting a good photo by taking lots of pictures and then spending hours weeding thorugh and then tweeking the best photos. My favorites are my grandson, sunsets, flowers and animals.
