The rock and pool, is nice and cool, so juicy sweeeeet. Our only wish, to catch a fish, so juicy sweet.

Two months and still going strong.

A boo-boo

I put a bandaid on the banana's boo-boo.

As you can see I have veered way off course from my initial goal of this project.

A little red

This project has no theme, despite the original plan. I just thought I would add some color today. These are just some jelly hearts.

Supposed to be one piece

After avoiding two snow storms by being in AZ and CA we come home to some needed snow clearing. This morning I was out snowblowing and shoveling. I cleared the driveway apron and then pulled the car out into the street to be followed by backing out my truck. This would make it easier to clear the driveway. But when backing the truck out I failed to remember that I had leaned the shovel against the truck's bumper. Duh. It took a hacksaw to cut it out from underneath the truck. Feel free to chuckle at my stupidity.

Comfort Food

After flying cross country from eighty degree days to the mid thirties and having to shovel a bit to get into the house, Pat and I thought we should simply indulge ourselves.

Bug Huntin'

Quinton poking at what appeared to be a spider that would hop a couple inches instead of crawling. He was fascinated by it and poked it along for fifteen minutes.

Hall Complete

Three day project was completed today. First day was installing crown molding in the hall. Second day was painting ceiling and all molding. Today was painting the walls. I worked alone today because Kevin had work to do.

Sunday, February 14, 2010


Walked around Kevin's yard today after half a day of painting and took about ten pictures, but couldn't choose. Asked for input from others and no agreement could be reached. Kevin liked the first one here, seed pods from the sycamore out front.

Pat liked this one. An orange on the tree out back.

Tracy liked this orange.

Pat also liked this one and I only include it because it is Valentine's Day. But it is also Kaeden and Quinton's birthday. That is much more important.

Worked all day with Kevin putting up crown molding in his hallway. After showering I grabbed my camera and began walking around his house looking for something to use as my photo for the day. Nothing. No inspiration. I plopped down on the couch and looked to my right.

City Worker

Guy is a city union worker who was on his coffee break as I passed by and I couldn't resist asking him if I could photograph him.

Thursday, February 11, 2010


Even with all the pics I took today of the boys, I didn't really like any for this project. So, I walked around Kevin's house looking for something worthwhile and this is all I came up with. Oh well, forty two days and still going strong.

Windmills along Interstate 10 on the way from AZ to CA. This photo was taken while a passenger in a car going eighty miles per hour. I think it came out pretty good.

Great Bocce Form

We were going to play pickle ball but settled on bocce instead.

Monday, February 8, 2010


We went to an art exhibit/show in Scotsdale today. These are just three of many things we saw. The first is a bison made from scrap metal.

The second is also made from metal.

This third is just an artist's work in progress.

Sun and Moon

After the difficult time I had choosing a picture yesterday from the many I took, today I have taken none so had to look around the Nicolato's house to find something to qualify. This is what I found. Not much, but oh well.

Chocolate Festival

Went to the Chocolate Festival in Glendale, AZ. Some attendees had chocolate covered cheesecake on a stick. Decadent.

Reflective building.

Waiting for the wives to come out of one of the shops.

I thought this man's face had a lot of character and shows he did a lot of living.

Historic with stained glass windows made with concrete connectors instead of lead.

Morning view

No real explanation needed. This is the first thing my eyes focus on in the morning.

AM snow

Woke up this morning to a blanket of white. Thought I should take advantage so I would have the project out of the way early.

Hare today and potential youtube incident

Relaxing rabbit is today's photo. But....

I couldn't not put up this photo of an idiot accident waiting to happen. Neighbor is up in the tree between twenty five and thirty feet from the ground with a chain saw. Need I say more.
