Nana strikes again!

The six of us (me, son, daughter in law, grandson #1, granddaughter and grandson #2) went to Denny’s for breakfast because someone was seriously craving some sausage, eggs and pancakes.  That person shall remain nameless but I bet you can guess who 😉  We hunkered into the big semi-circle booth and placed our orders.  That day I taught grandson #1 the joy (and yumminess) of putting an over easy egg on top of some hash browns and digging in to get a bite of both – he is now converted!

But as the little one lay there quietly sleeping I was seized by the urge to photograph his sweet innocence in some mischievous ways.  One day when he is older and sees these he will laugh…or not.

Where’s Mr. Peabody?

Let’s see who get’s it.  I will be on spring break next week – well let me clarify that – the kids will be on spring break next week and I will be joining them.  DH cannot come with me so watch out world here she comes!  Then again, how much mischief can I get into when I will be with a 13, 11 and 4month old?

On second thought don’t answer that 😉

Lady’s Slipper

Really?  Why they were named this still amazes me – I mean c’mon! But they are still fascinating orchids nonetheless.

Hoot 2

I was this close to dubbing this post “hooters” but I couldn’t bring myself to do it 🙂   This was the first time I have ever witnessed an owl butterfly with it’s wings open.  Who knew the little hoots had such colorful upper wings!

Two horses, a mule and Sam Elliott

Yet another bit of proof that proves you never know who or what you may come across when out with a camera.  They stopped and we chatted for awhile after I pointed right at “Sam Elliott” and told him I loved his mustache.  Turned out he’s originally from northeastern Illinois.  No idea where they came from or where they were going but it made for some great western captures and a few laughs.  This was also the first time I had ever seen a mule outside of a book or movie.  All of the steeds were beautiful… and the humans were pretty cool in their western wear.

Monday Monday

The hustle and bustle of the holidays (not to mention them being on weekends which adds an extra bit of disorientation to the what day is it today question) has come and gone and now it’s time to get back to things that must be done.  As DH is still off work for awhile we are going to do the usual take down the decorations along with trying to catch up on other projects around the house and elsewhere.

This means I will be away from the computer other than trying to get a new portfolio site up and maybe the occasional popping in to see what’s new with you – if I can.  Usually this is monochrome Monday for some blogs; I am running this old photo I took in the NYC library in 2015 for today.  It’s a bit of how I feel looking down the steps into the basement where I have to lug the decorations and other things that are going back into their storage boxes.  Putting up and decorating seems to go so much quicker than the reverse.

Cya in a week or so.
