Visiting an old favorite project this week. I'd originally wanted to paint this room a pale citrine lacquer. When it went up on the walls I realized it looked the color of a urine sample from someone who worked at a nuclear waste facility. Had to paint over it immediately!
These beautiful pale pink azalea blossoms unfortunately turn the color of Tonya Harding's skates. And seem to be holding on for dear life.
You were once not much bigger than Choppy. Happy Birthday @thomasbolen_ from your most excellent godfather
Thank you Mother Nature!
Almost can't believe my father turned 80 this week. Happy Birthday Dad! Remember the time we set off into the woods to go look for a good spot to camp, walked for what seemed like days (a few hours), were exhausted but thrilled to see a clearing ahead, only to emerge right back on the 9th green from where we had left. James says I definitely got your sense of direction.
This hot day in NY makes me wish I were here in this Pacific Northwest house that I helped friends with, perched on a cliff 300' over Puget sound. One of my favorite houses anywhere and one of the most spectacular properties I have ever seen!
To follow my Mother's Day post, where my grandmother looked like she ate a sour lemon, here's my mom in 1957 with her parents, and here my grandmother looks more like her happy self. 60 years ago - wow Mom, I guess you have always had your lovely smile and sunny disposition!
My mother and grandmother at the tomb of Hatshepsut. Happy Mother's Day Mom!
Thinking a nap might be in order.
Harrie investigates the groundhogs hole
And they call it puppy love - fortunately it seems requited!
Orchids everywhere in the Dominican Republic - it's like they grow on trees down here!
The last of them
Ramped up the egg scramble
A welcome sight after two and a half hours in traffic!
Once we were above the clouds it was lovely and calming - could do without the take off and landing though. #whiteknuckles #noklonopin
Went to a friend's surprise 50th last night, so I'm clinging to this as long as I can!
