It was clearly time to replace the Big Mean Kitty. You can see where she has basically torn the kitty's tail off. There has been tufts of green fuzz all over the living room for weeks. Stella barely let me take this photo before she grabbed the new BMK and took him to the living room to commence chewing.

Weekly Words Challenge


This is the front porch of my house. I really want to get some kind of seating for here. Maybe some rocking chairs or a glider...


And here is my back porch. I really like the back porch. Although I do think it needs a railing.

Monica and I went out again this weekend for another photoshoot. As always, I think we got some really great shots. Here are my favorites.

First, we went to some nearby railroad tracks.

And then, we went out to the Parthenon.

Meet Toby

Toby is a neighborhood dog that comes around in the afternoons. He is just a big baby and I love him.

This storm rolled in last night. It was one big storm cloud that I thought was beautiful.

Chaos in the sky?

This is my desk at work. I like to call it organized chaos.


Went to get in the truck yesterday morning and these were all over the hood. I haven't seen any neighborhood cats anywhere, so I wonder who they came from.

This is our hall closet. The mystery is this: Why do my cats feel the need to open this door when we're not home? How do they do it? And what do they do in there after they have the door open?

I swear, I have to close this door almost every day when I get home in the afternoons.

I photograph my dog because I have no children...

I see tons of these everyday. I really like the way they look, so I stopped and shot some yesterday afternoon.

Weekly Words Challenge


Both of my cats love to peek around corners whenever they can. This is Aphrodite peeking into the living room.


This past weekend, Eric and I went over to my mother's house so he could power wash the front walkway and back porch. Mind you, this hasn't been done in several years. As you can see in the photo, not only was the walkway really dirty before it got power washed, but Eric also got absolutely filthy during the process.

Stella Cloned

This is my first successful cloning attempt. I know it's not the best, but I don't think it's that bad. Although the tilted horizion is starting to drive me crazy. I might have to go back and fix that...

P.S. I've also decided that one Stella is more than enough!

I used to wear fun socks all the time. But somehow, all of my fun socks went away and all I have now are white socks and black socks.

I saw this pair the other day and bought them on impulse. I love them! Now everywhere I go, I look for fun socks...

Weekly Words Challenge

So, I took the easy road this week and shot one photo for both words.

Heavy and Light

When we were out on the lake this was the view we had for most of the afternoon. Very heavy clouds on one side and light on the other. I thought this looked really pretty and made Eric stop the boat in the middle of the lake to get this shot.

Eric and I got out on the lake today. It's the first time I've been out this year. I fished a little and even caught a small-mouth bass. (It was a baby, but so what? It still counts!)
