1 your reflection -
I'm not sure what I did with the camera to get the color like this. he loves to look at himself in the mirror.
2 colour -
my life involves lots of primary colors these days.
3 mail -
that day was only a This Old House magazine (our favorite magazines for a number of reasons, one being that we won a new HVAC system for our house) and a letter from the Humane Society of the US. About 6 months ago I gave a $25 dollar donation. Since then we receive at least one letter a week asking for more money, as well as "gifts" for our support, including a metal keychain, bumper stickers, magnets (car and refrigerator), 3 calendars (large and pocket sized), and enough return address labels to get me through until the Apocalypse. So nice to know my donation is being utilized appropriately.
4 someone who makes you happy.
are you surprised?
5 tiny -
wee little flower/weed coming up in the grassy part of the back yard.
ham and cheese on wheat with a little honey dijon mustard, a fuji apple, and sunchips
hard to see but there's a shadow of a reisling grapevine I planted at my brother's vineyard.
8 inside your wallet
okay, i'm cheating a little on this one. this is my wallet/purse. you can't really see inside of it, so here's the back of it. I bought it at a little hippie shop in oak ridge that no longer exists. i was probably 16 or 17 at the time. I hadn't used it in years, but started carrying it right after i had ian - i couldn't stand carrying a diaper bag and a purse, too. it's just big enough for a few cards, cell phone, cash, and an id. it's just about ready to bite the dust, as you can see. the stitching on the back is falling apart (partly from use, partly from ian chewing on it). my mom has sewn the strap back on a few times, too. the embroidery on the front still looks really good. i'll be sad when t's no longer usable.
9 younger you
my favorite photo from our wedding. the end of may we will be married nine years.
frozen pureed blueberries (frozen in an ice cube tray). we didn't do a whole lot of home made baby food, but we make and freeze our own blueberry, apple, and pear puree to mix with oatmeal for ian's breakfast.

stairs up to the back porch
13 something you found
rocks i found at my parent's house. used to line the flowerbed seen in this post.

our christmas cactus bloomed in april. this bloom is complete with a phoebe hair attached to the bottom. she's shedding a lot right now.
17 something you don't like
along with spring comes poison ivy. we're slowly getting rid of it, but what remains is really healthy
couldn't resist this one. you can do some really fun styling with his hair when it is wet.
one orange impatien in a pot full of white.
20 something you drew
i struggled with this one as i don't draw much. found a cardiovascular physiology diagram from my first year of vet school (shudder). not a fun class.
say what you will about cheap bear, sometimes nothing hits the spot like a southpaw.
22 the last thing you bought
edging for the yard, which we took back - decided we didn't want to put plastic in the yard.
it's gettin' to be cucumber weather. yum.
24 something you're grateful for
i have a lot of things that i am grateful for ,but this day i was feeling especially grateful for my home

26 black and white
except for blue eyes and a brown nose, phoebe's mostly black and white.
27 somewhere you went
leaving the local Mommy 2 Mommy lunch. tuckered out.
the top of a rabies vaccine bottle. i gave vaccines at one of the rabies clinics this year.
30 something that makes you sad
this is a cartoon a friend drew for us of our little kitty begbie, who disappeared right after i found out i was pregnant. i love the drawing, but it makes me sad, too.
