Hello puppy feet. This is Chase and his new BFF. They spent the evening running around on the patio. Mostly I think Chase was trying to get away from the puppy.....

I was playing around with my father-in-laws zoom lens. It wasn't very fast to focus, so most of the pics are on the blurry side. : ) They have probably five or so nests right now with little baby birds in them.

Personal fireworks show in Paris. We're not allowed to shoot off fireworks in Fort Worth, but they don't care what you do out in the middle of nowhere! This is me playing with sparklers. This is 25 seconds worth of sparkler play.

This picture was taken at 7:30 am. See that line outside the door of our culinary center? Those are the people waiting in line for the new iPhone. Our place is a half a city block from the Apple Store, but this line stayed solidly passed our door (at one point it was two blocks long) until I left work at 4:00pm. These people are crazy.

The after shot of our patio. (see yesterday's POTD for the before shot). The portion closest to the house is going to be our new garden area where we might plant herbs or maybe not. That's next to figure out. It looks way better in person than this picture shows!

I know the most amazing people. I can't process gluten (think flour, everything has flour in it) and it really sucks in an office attached to a culinary center where there is always amazing desserts. On Tueday everyone had chocolate cake, except me. Then on Wednesday night, Pam made me two special desserts. This is gluten-free brownies and not pictured is gluten-free apple upside down cake. I truly know the most amazing people. People who go out of their way to include me.
Just a shot of our backyard as it is today. Tomorrow it should look quite different as we are tripling our patio area. A contractor will come tomorrow rip out our current concrete patio and replace it with pavestones. I am so excited.
Friday Photo Walk. This, for the second week in a row, is a tennis court fence in Dallas. No one was playing tennis today because it was so stinkin' hot. I only lasted about twenty minutes in the heat before I called it quits!

This is Laura. You've met Laura a few times since she or her daughter have been my POTD a few times. She's been back from maternity leave a little while and today was one of the trainers at a session we had at work for our dealers. Ten dollars if you know what she's demonstrating. : )
Chase and Ditz play this game where Chase snarls at Ditz and then licks his nose. It's actually quite cute. I can never get the full on I'm gonna eat you snarl, but I think this is the closest I've ever gotten. : )

Usually when Ditz goes out of town he comes home with a shot glass for my collection, but since I already have one from Boston, he bought me this instead. It's citrine and ironically matched the outfit I picked him up from the airport in

Do you remember a few months ago when I bought a few Kodak Brownie cameras? I only ever showed three, because well, I didn't want anyone to think I had gone off my rocker. I saved this one, my favorite one - the most expensive one and the rarest one I own. This is a 1930 Beau Brownie, model 2A in mint condition. I got it for a steal of a deal, but I still paid a lot for it. There was this one guy and I fighting over it on ebay all the way up until the last second. I won it and you would've thought I won the lottery.

You know how there are some days in the project where you just snap a picture to say you took one? This is one of those. I was home sick and had to run to pick up Ditz's dry cleaning so he will have a clean suit to wear to a funeral.
This is what I am dreaming of for my kitchen. I want one this mixer, even though I do not bake enough to actually need a mixer. Just think how pretty it would be on my counter......

Tonight, for the first time ever, I made ranchero sauce from scratch. It took forever and I will probably never try that again on a weeknight, but it was good over the meat ball taco things I made to eat with it.
My bedside lamp. I used to take these out of my hair at night and just lay them on them on my night stand. But then I'd knock them off and lose them or step on them and break them. Now I put them on the lamp shade and after about two weeks I take them all off and start the process again.
