Friday Photo Love

I enjoy showing my Flickr favorites here on Fridays, and this week I’ve got two favorites mosaics to share. (If you remember, last week I showed you my beach gallery instead.) As always, you can click on the mosaics for full photo credits.  I noticed I chose a lot of daisy photos this week.  It’s […]

When the going gets tough…

The tough escape to the beach 🙂 Late afternoon beach trips are the best.  The hottest part of the day is over, access to the beach is free, the crowds have begun to disperse… it’s a great time to kick back on a blanket and relax. Or to take 699 pictures.  Not that I know […]

Back in the backyard

Our back patio has been depressing me ever since the summer started.  I hadn’t gotten around to cleaning it up or to buying a new kiddie pool for the ever-important mid-afternoon foot-dunking, before the weather turned brutally hot and humid.  I didn’t want to be outside without the relief of the little pool, but I […]

Itty bitty sweater

I’m feeling less grumpy at the moment – it’s not too hot yet, and the humidity isn’t particularly oppressive, so I’m taking advantage of the ability to be outside.  It’s nice.  So, why don’t we go with this good mood while it lasts, and talk lightheartedly about sweaters? Sweaters, you ask?  Really? It’s been so […]

Who knew books could be so witty?

I’m kind of a craft book hoarder, and I have always liked buying new.  But financial necessities forced me recently to take more advantage of the library and engage in many fewer impulse buys.  To my surprise, I discovered that I kind of like borrowing first.  I found the try-before-you-buy that the library offers to […]
