Halloween Eve

I didn't have a digital camera when the kids were small so all of my photos of them are on paper and will need to be scanned. But, I had already scanned these two pics for a school project. These are my kids when they were 3 and 5.

Lots of Photos This Week

I took photos this week and then, to cap off the week, hubby and I went away for the weekend and I took some more photos there.

I don't know how that didn't bother his ear!!!

This is the window of a restaurant we ate in called "The Mad Batter" - the breakfast there was absolutely delicious!!!

This is the southern most tip of the New Jersey shore and is known as Cape May Point - this is the wreckage of a concrete ship called "Atlantus" that was built in 1918. It broke free of its moorings and has been resting here since 1926. This part of the beach is also a great place to find Cape May Diamonds.

I am imagining this is Wife goose yelling at Husband goose - who seems about as attentive as a lot of husbands do to our ranting.....

A tired carriage horse awaiting his next fare....

And there will be more!!!!

Where Is He???

My son had a Halloween party last night. This was his costume (I knitted the hat!!!). He won a prize for most creative but nobody knew where he was to give it to him :o)

A front view - have you seen him???

Life Has Interrupted My Fun

I cannot, hard as I might try, to stay on daily photo posting. Too much has happened and by day's end my concentration is so poor that I can't get organized enough to post. More importantly, I've fallen behind on my visiting of my fellow blogger's blogs - something I am resolved to fix - very soon.

I still am taking photos (and losing ones that I have taken). I saw these flowers on my walk the other night and thought they were lovely.

THE Best BBQ, Day 278

This photo was taken a couple of weeks ago at one of my brothers' houses. I didn't have a burger but I did have a piece of chicken and I have to say it was the best BBQ chicken I had ever eaten. It was marinated overnight in some blend of seasonings and then slow baked in the oven, and then at the last minute thrown in the broiler to crisp it.

I can almost taste it again just by looking at this.... My niece did email me the recipe and I am going to try it at home!

Thank You, Day 275

First, I just wanted to say thanks for the good thoughts regarding my mother-in-law. She was THE BEST Mom a daughter-in-law could ever ask for.

I've been taking photos - maybe not every day in the last couple of weeks, but I have amassed quite a selection and I feel like I have really fallen behind in posting them. Actually, I don't "feel", I "know" I have fallen behind.

Anyway, here are several.

I took the dogs for a walk the other night and saw this bird on top of the telephone pole. Fortunately, I was able to cut through a neighbor's backyard and get my camera. I think it's a falcon but I'm not sure.

These are our good friends - and coincidentally the couple who arranged a blind date between me and my now husband. We get together for dinner once a month and have been doing this for about 18 years. Next month it is my turn to host the dinner - which ALWAYS has salsa and chips for an appetizer - it's a tradition ever since Jeff (the guy in this photo) got a bowl of salsa knocked on to his brand new white sneakers about 15 years ago. No dinner is complete without the salsa and chips.

Had a dinner party a little while back and took this shot of the glasses.

Playtime at our home this week - the two dogs are getting along great!

Tonight's sophomore dance - my son and his date. It was a very welcome ending to a long day as we said goodbye to mom/Grandmom.... I think having the dance to look forward to was a big help.

Since I put this post together, the dance has since ended and he had a wonderful time.
