Kind Of Cute

The color patterns on my girls matches just a little, and the 'baby boy' sticking his nose into everything has a certain 'je ne sais quoi' that makes me smile as well!

That Sums It Up

I've had a horrible, rotten, no good day and the pattern on the bandana on my head says pretty much everything for me.

On Impulse

Kind of could use a new pair of footwear. Many of mine are falling apart. These were the last pair, on clearance but they feel a bit large so they might get exchanged or turned in for store credit.

Doors and Cars

While my daughter and I were waiting for my Pilot to get fixed up at the dealership, we lunched at Basil Thai. We split the Pad Se Lew with tofu which was quite yummy! Don't they have the prettiest bathroom doors you ever did see?

At It Again

The clouds were having another mingle session with several different types at the party in the sky. There was also an amazing gold glow at sunset with black and lightning in the distance. I wondered if we'd get rain and we did, for just a couple minutes =(

Rambling Rose

Where did this rose come from? How long will it stay? Will some trash man come and throw it away? Every image has a story and this one caused my friend and I to wonder today. Tell me how you think this story should sway.

Too Much

If the drink can't seem to stay inside the cup, is that supposed to be a sign to stop drinking?

Snowball Attempt

This batch was mostly succssful, but a couple of the cookies disintegrated for the powdered sugar dusting. Needed more butter? A firmer rolling hand? Oh drat, will need to make these again to figure it out!

At The African Grey

These young Blue-Masked Lovebirds (and their cousins) are so pretty to see! Their coloring reminds me so much of the sky and storm clouds, yet seems peaceful. Although right now is not the right time to be adding to our family, perhaps someday I'll have a bird of my own to cuddle with.

In My House...

Resides a geeky dragon and an eager hatchling. Not only in pewter figurine form, but human as well!

Petite Picasso Strikes Again

Another art piece by my daughter =)

Stress Relief

Slamming a spoon into something soft yet stony. Yes, final is over. Yes, Chem was passed but by the hairs of my tail. Yes, the FAFSA stuff got taken care of and the check book found. Having the bird scream for nearly two hours straight unraveled all that.

They Bloomed! 76/365

The Marshmallow & I dined al fresco for dinner tonight because it was too nice out there not to & the bird wouldn't stop screaming. I had no idea our roses had survived the winter and bloomed! What a pleasant discovery! Thanks to my Precious for keeping them watered & bases covered =)

Inspired, But Not.

I'd like to start writing actual words in here again. I have a couple ideas rolling around in my head of what to write but the mixture of school stress, lack of sleep, and no evidence of people actually reading this thing points to that the effort will not be put forth right now. Next Tuesday afternoon will officially start another small break from classes and maybe I'll do a Wardrobe Wednesday, or a Thoughtful Thankful Thursday, or something.

I hope you've been enjoying my 365 Camera Phone Project. It has been pretty effortless to post those to flickr and up here. The creative muscles seem to be pretty stiff and it feel like most of the time I present sub-par images but this is my chance to learn. Go back and critique my own work. Browse the flickr group for ideas and feedback. Keep my eyes open for chance circumstances and unique experiences. While I may not always be happy with what I produce I'm not regretting that I started this. I got a pretty late start, because most start at the first day of the new year, and I finally bit the bullet in the... second week of March.

A Favorite 75/365

Hungry? 74/365

The Cherry Creek Mall has a cute, quirky, fun breakfast themed play area for the small fries (aka kids). Mine has just a few more inches to grow before she's "not allowed" in. We will enjoy it while we still can!

Divine Decree to Drivers

We didn't make it out of the house early enough for our usual Mass location and ended up going to a Parish we'd never been to before. These aptly worded signs gave a giggle. I wonder if they hold the same legal power as the more conventionally worded signs?

The Hall of Mixed Emotions

On these walls are posted the grades for all classes. At the end of the hall is a doorway which leads to where many of the animals are housed: guinea pigs, mice, rats, gerbils, birds, rabbits, and the cats. It is incredible that such a small amount of space holds potential for such joy and sorrow.

This Little Face ....

Brightens my darkest of days. My Marshmallow Girl, the little piece of my heart walking around. <3

Now I'm not one to normally go ga-ga over a car but the paint job on this guy rocked my world. This image does not do it one iota of justice. Color shifting green and purple goodness. My Pilot's dirt-caked steel grey was ashamed to be parked to such beauty.

Stocking Up

This was my belated Mother's Day present, I suppose. DH & I lugged it down to the basement & both of us regret not hiring the hardware store people to move it for us. It's there now though and has a decent variety of meats. I'm looking forward to filling it more with home made heat and eat entrees. Need to get some bettercontainers for that.

Around & Around

Laid on the bed and stared up at the fan for quite some time, thinking about everything and nothing. Feeling a bit nostalgic & bittersweet tonight.

I Know There's Treats In There

Tai-Grr paws around for proof... At the Vet's office

Feel so far behind...

It's been a little rough lately. Haven't been keeping up with my homework as well as I should, and on the lighter side I'm way behind in my blog subscriptions, cell phone photo a day, and the stack of clean laundry now blocks the closet door. In my defense I've been nursing a sick cat and had an allergy attack this weekend.

Tai-Grr is the sick kitty. He has had diarrhea for quite a while now. He's been on hypo-allergenic food and Metronidazole since the start of the month. He had an abdominal ultrasound on Monday. The results from that have come up as inconclusive. He doesn't have the thickening of the intestinal walls for an IBD diagnosis. The Veterinarian thinks it might be Pancreatitis or food allergy. We are going to continue the Metro and limited ingredients food and give it time. Also saving our pennies for more blood work. He still has diarrhea but the Metro seems to be helping and as long as he keeps eating, we can at least avoid Hepatic Lipidosis.

On the upside, I'm still getting B's in both my classes this quarter. Just a couple more weeks left and I want to see if I can push things to make the grade more secure, because it's on the low side right now.

Facebook Feigns Flickr

Taking pics faster than the free flickr can keep up with so will be using facebook for overflow photos. There isn't picnik but it will be easier for friends and family to keep up. That's the plan anyway.

Needs of a Different Kind

Meds administered, feeding attempted, a method of safe transport. Feel better soon, Tai-Grr! Tonight was the last night of meds. Hoping his appetite returns by tomorrow evening.

We Can Has Koffeez?

Two different schedules but equal need for the morning brew means two pre-set pots most mornings.

Spreading Cheer All The Year

These little kittens swing from my rear view mirror. They were given to us as a Christmas goody from my parents and somehow ended up as stowaways in the center console of my Pilot. They recently came out of hiding and I couldn't resist hanging them up! Hopefully they won't get too faded before next Christmas.

Take The Time

This sculpture is outside of the Denver Dumb Friends League, as a reminder to us to take the time to enjoy our furry friends and let them know they are loved.

Mother's Day Rose

Given by my daughter. She really laid it on thick, serenading and giving cuddles all day long. She even did a pretty good job with the beef stew dinner =)

In other news, I have already used up 70% of my space on flickr this month. Must go 'pro' again :p

A Beautiful Day...

For a walk in City Park. We saw geese- babies and an unwell one. Lots of dog walkers, trees continuing to green up and blossom, and several kids at the playground. We talked about renting a pedal boat but didn't because I'd need another adult helping to keep us afloat. It was an over-all pleasant afternoon for my girl and I.

Springing

Denver is such a beautiful area. From the flowery trees, to the quaint buildings downtown, to the magestic Rockies... I love it all and never want to leave!

Earlier today Oakley got so riled up when playing that he bit someone! He really still is a lovable little cat.
