A Summer of Sunsets



have been happily taking and editing pictures of people in the long term care home across the way. I can't share those photos with you but I just want to say that I am finding it incredibly fulfilling. I don't know where if anywhere this will take me, but I do know it is a path I was meant to find however circuitous my journey to it was, and I am grateful. 

So tonight we have a very special guest photographer. My brother Henry went to the same spot to catch the sunset all summer and he has just finished putting his beautiful photos to music that he bought from a street musician when he was in Italy. He said I could share it here. I think it is stunning and I think you will find it so as well. 

Enjoy:

Bubble bugs

I have not seen many squirrels these days, it's kind of like trick or treating when no kids come by, but I caught this fellow in the act the other day. 



Pretty sure he rode the feeder until it came apart. 



I don't mind who eats the seeds and got it put back together. 

What's left of our snow. 




Not cold enough to freeze bubbles today. 


But I had fun anyway.

Harry made it out onto the porch the other day!

Happy Birthday Dana!

Today we celebrated my niece Dana's birthday. 


But first a cold slushy and beautiful drive to church. 






Later Cooper and Dana picked me up and we headed to their place. 



I think Cooper is the only 4 year old I know who enjoys smoked salmon. 



I know I should have stopped this, but you know, pictures. 









Feeling a bit left out Graycee?



I got the flowers for Dana not to take pictures of right?





Right :-)











Right. 


Look down


And you'll see the cheese in the sandwich. 


Cooper says "hey guys, let's make a cheese sandwich!" and they do. 


Ozzy of the beautiful eyes. 








Playing with Max. 


Cooper and Grandpa are going to Florida tomorrow (for real) for a few days and he's getting ready!






Ozzy imitates...


The boss in the Dilbert cartoon






Not at all sure how Todd escaped unscathed. 


Chris out did himself with a rib dinner for Dana. 





Cooper shared his cheese string. 



Helped with the brownie cake for his mom. 










And helped her open one more present. 


Happy birthday Dana and have fun at Gator world guys!!
