Stuff to look at (or Stuff at which to look)

I have been really bad about blogging lately. And I don’t really have time for a post today, so I thought I would leave you with some stuff to look at. A bit of a mixed bag, so hopefully there is something for everyone.

Lovely yellow rose next to our front door.

John just took these two photos this morning.

Back in February Lucy decided she was a cheetah and found a high point for looking for prey.

Sniffing the breeze.

Delicious devilled eggs that my friend Ron made on Easter.

Books in our old apartment.

A delicious winery stop in Sonoma in 2006.

Our friends first newborn goat was named after yours truly.

On our way over the Great Barrier Reef to Lizard Island in 2006.

Sunset from Lizard Island.

This April my parents were with us when they celebrated their 50th anniversary. Here they are opening a
picture of a street sign at an intersection in St. Paul where a street with our last name intersects with a
street with my mom’s maiden name.

John set a lovely table.

He did the flowers as well.

I made the food.

Rub my tummy…please.

I’m still waiting.

I’m not sure they wanted their tummies rubbed. Somewhere south of Big Sur, California.

Doesn’t get much more peaceful than a lake in the Adirondacks.

    All of your photos are lovely, Thomas, but Lucy does make me laugh. I love her tummy shots and what a little monkey up on the table!

    My dog liked to be up high too. She is a little dog though and I think she gets a crick in her neck when she has to always look up to us from below.

    Lovely photographs Thomas! Lucy is so adorable and think your celebration for your parents looks wonderful – food, table setting and flowers all.

    Outstanding post! Love the photo of your parents. And Lucy, of course (on table and on bed).

    I desperately want John to do the flowers for my next party, he's amazing.

    Love the photos,all of them. Next photo has to show titles of the gorgeous books on the shelf and also one of someone rubbing that darling little dog's tummy. Dogs are wonderful. Thanks for sharing, Pam

    I SO enjoyed every single picture. I love the story of the street signs. Pretty amazing!
    Love your bookcases, and I hope you are able to have nice fires in the fireplace. And Lucy, well, what can I say? She's just so adorable. Sweet, sweet girl.

    Darlene: It is hard to beat a cute dog picture.

    Leticia: I wish I could post the picture of the street sign, but that would be giving out a little too much information.

    Ti: Unfortunately Lucy's jumping ability also applies to the kitchen counter. Although, to my knowledge she has only done that once.

    Penandpencilgirls: Thanks. I must say I was pleased with how the dinner for my parents turned out.

    Margaret: John is my very own Mrs Dalloway, doing the flowers himself.

    Pam: We are too busy rubbing her tummy to get a photo of it.

    NNan: Glad you enjoyed the photos. I tried to provide an interesting, diverse selection.
