Immense Underpopulated

I feel like I'm in danger of getting lost in the newly renovated Target on University. And like nobody might find me for years.

My Friday World

This is the 20+ ticket window of the middle school Reward Store. (The other window has items like pencils for 1 ticket up through fun shoelaces for 10.)

Sherwood Plaza

Thank you, Lowes Foods, for having a cart that works for us on days when he falls asleep at 5 and I have to wake him up at 6 to make a quick grocery run. (This after he slept the whole way to school this morning.)

Or Magnolias

If I were planning wedding decor on a tight budget, I would totally grab two of the weeping cherries ($40ish each) and use them to frame the head table. Alas, nobody's getting married in my universe, but I am throwing a baby shower this summer. Squee!

My dog is HAG! My dog is HAG!

I'd like to believe Pep has begun utilizing the art of camouflage in her quest to increase her annual vole tally to ever new heights, but secretly I think her thought process is more akin to WoW tHeeS FloWurs sO0o sOfFFt.

A toast to 80 degree weather! (PS: Blue Ridge's oatmeal maple walnut ice cream is a yesssss.)

Hunting season!

Don't let their nonchalance fool you; they're just waiting for the first vole to venture into the yard.

Little Strummer Boy

The youngest has composed numerous originals in homage to historic beverages. Here he works on "Cheers to Cheerwine", always a crowd favorite.

Oh My

Here the youngest expresses his thoughts and emotions about the broccoli plantings at Reynolda Gardens.

Mine: Mmm, delicious with cheddar!

DMV Yesssss

Click on the image twice (or so) and it should biggify. (If not I'll fix it when I get home later today.)

The youngest has just informed me that, "This is the kind of moon zombies probably like."

Wooden pens World Market


(Alas, I am only on a mission for fortune cookies today.)

And mine

The youngest's favorite ice cream lady is going to be on the Channel 2 news at 6 PM. Holla!

In accordance with household tradition this plant is named Quincy

My quince is spectacular this year, in all probability due to the traditional Annual Disappearance of the Gardener (and His Zealous Prunery). Where is he? Who knows, but the bushes especially are merrymaking in his absence.

Greenhouse at Reynolda

So before anyone freaks on out, this is (A) far less cluttery and (B) going to make it easier-peasier for me to post umpteen phonophotos a day. Click on the ones that tickle your fancy; ignore those that don't. You can also select a layout that is more pleasing to you and your inner essence or your core belief system or whatever you use to make such determinations. (Me? I use my eyes.)

Welcome back to LiF, y'all!
