Summer Reading

The public library's summer reading program has ended, and I got some prizes! Yay (yes, I am an eight-year-old!).

When I was a kid, I LOVED the library's summer reading program. My mom will tell you that I never won because I was reading "chapter books" rather than picture books, so I didn't read 57 like some of the other kids, but it didn't matter because it was FUN!

To this day I still keep a notebook and write down everything I read, month by month. It's nice to look back over the year and see what all you've read.

Tallulah-Palooza Friday

 Dog in car.
Dog in car. Fly in car. Dog in car looking at fly in car.

This short poem has been brought to you by Tallulah Mae and an anonymous insect.

Happy and Sad

Happy Birthday to my sweet mommy who I love so very much.

Vivi Sue, have a big old piece of cake with lots of frosting roses on top, and wash it all down with a margarita! We're celebrating with you in spirit.

And a farewell and rest in peace to my wonderful father-in-law, who passed away two days ago at the age of 90. He was a gentle, dignified, erudite man who loved his family fiercely in his own quiet way and thoroughly enjoyed life. I am so happy to have known him.

He also enjoyed a good toast, both the "Cheers" sort and the bread sort. So "Cheers," will be missed by so many.

What the Heck?! Updated wrong with Blogger? It won't let me upload any photos, boo!

I will attempt to do so tomorrow (today?). Sorry!

Update: Apparently it is a Chrome problem, so blergh. Here is a random photo, just because!

Sweet Weed

Weedy sweetness! (Not my yard...this is someone who still has a lawn here in drought-stricken California.)

Why Not?

Why NOT have iced coffee and a Reese's peanut butter cup for an afternoon snack? Why not, I ask you? So I did! And it was yum.

Tallulah-Palooza Friday

This girl...I have no words. At the vet the other day, someone who was not acquainted with Miss Mae took a picture of her "wonderful old lady face." It IS a wonderful face!
