Day 176 - Sis

With the past two weeks of weather in the 90's and the afternoon thunderstorms, can't decide if this grass is browning or greening.

Summer tv, you either catch up on programs you missed, watch food shows or repeats that you know too much dialogue from.

Day 173 - Lisa

Good stuff in the mail today.  Pics of my godson.  Growing up to be so handsome.  Miss my godkids.

Day 173 - Sis

Never thought this day would come. My daughter cleaned out her closet and this jacket went into the garbage bag. This chartreuse colored jacket was her signature outer wear for many years, how will we find her in a crowd now?

Day 172 - Sis

I want to be on Billy Nungesser's team along with Anderson Cooper. Two people who's heart and sense of right, fight for the people, wildlife, way of life and environment. Bravo!

Day 172 - Lisa

Props to our property management as kids headed to school on foot and cars went through the gate this morning they greeted us with a breakfast bag.  I already ate my banana.  That was a nice Friday surprise!

Day 171 - Lisa

It hurts right HERE!  Dang sinuses!

Day 171 - Sis

Saving these after throwing the dead bouquet away and cleaning the vase they were in. Never know, might need these extras in case I have to replace a few when my head starts feeling empty!

Day 170 - Sis

Easy enough task, emptying the dishwasher, right? Then why do I hate doing it so much?!!!

Day 170 - Lisa

On a cynical day I think there's no one left who believes in these sayings, most other days I read them and it helps me stay focused. Courage & Integrity (L to R).

Day 169 - Sis

I share my dry bread crumbs with the local birds outside our window. Tossing them in and around the shrubs for their convenience and sunii's viewing. The shrubs are lately overgrown and apparently the spiders are weaving webs because when I threw the bread crumbs, some of them were captured in the webs making the bushes look like cotton plants.

Day 169 - Lisa

Been with me for 21 years now.  Faithful friend.

Day 168 - Sis

The blueberries we bought at the Farmer's Market were purchased to try the pork chop recipe. Fortunately I found another dessert recipe for these little cakes to use the remaining berries. Have to say the recipe was a winner!

Day 168 - Lisa

New recipe tonight.  Pork Chops with Blueberry sauce.  Delicious!!  Mama said the blueberry sauce had everything but the kitchen sink in it.  All I know is it was GOOD!

Day 167 - Lisa

I only really like yellow on flowers.

Day 166 - Lisa

It was a tough choice today;  lime green & black Monte Carlo or an iPhone.  You guess which one I purchased.

Day 166 - Sis

AT&T store I was trapped in for about 3 hours while my daughter upgraded her recently damaged, (today), Blackberry. She is now has an iPhone. Since I as there anyway decided to upgrade my phone. It also gave me a look into my future as a nursing home resident. While I sat and listen to my daughter and AT&T member discuss what "she" needed and what "her"capabilities were. Go ahead talk as if I wasn't there. Like a good senior I wandered outside to take pictures.

Day 165 - Lisa

@ Farmers Market in our home town.  Man convinced me his tamales were the best.  Ha!  We shall see.  Something tells me there's no black olive in here.

I HATE mushrooms.  So much so I showed my mom who also hates them how to get around them when eating soup.  ;>  Scoot them to the side wall and line them up till you are done.

Lugging all the gear on trips is for the birds, so I went mini!  Netbook, sleeve and umbrella; all fit in my purse.

Day 157 - Sis

Since I needed to iron some things for the trip thought I'd get a good tempo going with my music. Slowed me down real fast when I realized ipod battery was dead. Geez.
