It was my turn to clean the litter box. I'm sorry I didn't do it.
AllanThinks 11 years ago
I've ben trying to get a decent shot of a spider for a long time, but I never found one so willing to stand still. It was cool, despite the fact I really don't like spiders.

We are the poorer for not having you as a neighbor.

S'okay.
CollardGreens PRO 11 years ago
Oh yeah - the spider is good stuff..

CollardGreens: Oops!
luckywhitegirl 11 years ago
wow (catching up here) I didn't know you smoked either, Allan! huh. weird.

I've been seeing lots of spiders out here, including one I thought was a brown recluse!

Like your new deck --temporary? are you going to build a wood one? we're building cabins out here on the farm so I'm learning about carpentry skills. very very useful. bet I could build a pretty good deck myself! lol

Despite initial reluctance, he has turned out to be quite popular.

We hope to replace it with a more permanent stone patio made from pavers. But that will happen with a more extensive remodel of the back of the house (kitchen and dining room).

I'm always looking for new recipes and cooking ideas.

The mattress was delivered to a neighbor by accident last evening. We became aware of it as we were leaving to go out for the evening with friends. We retrieved it this morning. it is now on the bed, awaiting testing. ;)

The Party After the Party

Posting this a day late. I took the photo late last evening after we returned from a beer tasting event at our favorite watering hole.

We attended with our friends A and J, and they hung out with us on the patio to chat and have another beer before they headed home.

Just stopping by to finally catch up! Re your March 10th photo (wow, has it really been that long?!)--you really have a bunch of persistent, practically immortal flowers...they're never going to die! :)

Love the shot of the cardinal on the 18th.

And I just love beer and wine tastings! Bo and I have been thinking about hosting a Beer And Chocolate tasting party one day. Perhaps when the weather gets warmer up here!

This particular bar serves 450 different beers.

Last night they were serving perhaps 50 of them. Maker's mark was also giving away shots of their bourbon.
CollardGreens PRO 11 years ago
Never been to a beer tasting...I bet there is not one of those spit buckets there !! Would love to have enough space for an outdoor table...better enjoy it !

Naked

This morning while I was washing dishes, I noticed petals from the flowers on the window sill had fallen into the sink. I looked at the flower and one of the blooms had given up most of its petals, leaving the stamen and pistil naked.

I had to get a photo of them. It was an opportunity to see them in profile, and in greater detail than usual.

I think this one turned out pretty well.
satrina* 11 years ago
Oh yes, it turned out great! nice detail. I was planning to do some shots of some almost dried flowers but my mom beat me to it and threw them away :(

Nekkid stamen and pistil?! Oh my, Allan! Is it Springtime in Lex? ;-)
AllanThinks 11 years ago
I've learned that there is beauty even in decay, so I wait before finally tossing them out.

Double Decker

Yes, Emil, springtime has come to Kentucky. ;)

It's been nice t sit out in the backyard and enjoy listening to birdsong and watching the birds feed at the feeder, and go about their day.

I've taken a bunch of photos the past few days. I've even posted a few of them to my photostream.
sunshinecity 11 years ago
it's always so wonderful to see birds up close...
Love this shot!

Wow, the contrast really pops here! And I love the opposed directions of your models' bodies.
AllanThinks 11 years ago
Thanks.

The background sky was pretty blown out to begin with. A tweak of the contrast pretty much made it disappear.

i like the composition of the birds too.... nice to see Allan with his Ali back home :-)

March 31, 2007 (MDPD2007)

After attending the Obama '08 Webcast Party at a friend's house this afternoon, we dined at home. Ali grilled lamb shoulder chops and red skin potatoes and made a salad. Much wine was consumed as well.

Lunasee

Today was a crappy day. For those who read Ali's diary, you can get a sense of what was so bad about it. She bore the brunt of the pain today, but when she hurts, so do I.

The full moon was the brightest moment of an otherwise very dark day.
ebilflindas 11 years ago
How nice to be able to enjoy yourselves "out back". Springtime is a fine time to consume much wine. Are covered patios not common over there?
lramiro520 11 years ago
Sorry to hear about Ali's bad day. It's never any fun when a family is split apart, especially by oceans. Hopefully the days to come will be better.

Birds, bar-b-que and plein lune...good stuff ! Missed a few days and am catching up slowly..

CollardGreens: Oops!
AllanThinks 11 years ago
I consumed much wine yesterday. I almost forgot to take any photos. :)

Thanks. I hope so, too.

I know. Nobody ever said it would be easy.

I have some catching up to do as well.

Green and Gold

It looks like winter is going to make a comeback starting Wednesday.

I'm glad I got this photo of the forsythia in the backyard. After the thunderstorms and high wind we are experiencing this evening (Tuesday as I type this), I have a feeling a lot of the flowers and trees that are in bloom are going to get trashed.

And if the wind doesn't get them, the cold temperatures we are expecting through this weekend will. The high temperature for Saturday is predicted to be 28ºF. And it will be even colder, and snowing in Pittsburgh where we are going for the Easter weekend.

Brr.

The sky really was this blue and the clouds this white today.

I couldn't resist goofing around.

I'm going to miss the warm weather. Hopefully it will return next week.

Crappy day today. Really bad.

We got in late after an evening out with friends. I realized I hadn't taken a photo yet. Took this one. Kind of represents what is happening in to my soul. I guess.

This is a beautiful photo. Hope things get better soon!

Brusha, Brusha, Brusha.

Going out of town for the weekend and don't know if I will have a chance to post until we return.

So I will leave you with this reminder to brush regularly.

Hope the week end helps you both relax and enjoy each other and leave worries back home.
