Had a friend visiting over the weekend.  We had a great time, ate some really yummy food, and enjoyed various beverages.  Last night I finished up the leftover Lambic.  I do like me some Lambic.

Overall, not particularly aesthetic...but I find it fascinating how this little drop of water reflects the tree.

Spring Cleaning

In anticipation of a friend coming to stay for a couple of days next weekend, I start spring cleaning yesterday.  This is the cleaning I had to do AFTER I finished getting the computer / guest room cleaned up for her.  Part of it, at any rate..

Haze ~ Not Purple

Full moon time again.  It's been awhile since I tried to get a shot. Some hazy almost-clouds were drfting across the sky and Sabine was trying to sneak out the doorwall while I was focused on focusing.  Still, imperfection can, in and of itself, lend to perfection on a different level.

Wearin' Of The Green

Today we celebrate the Irish in us...even if we have no Irish in us.  I am 25% Irish on my mother's side.  She also gave 25% French.  My dad, who was born in Poland, was responsible for the remaining 50%.

Around here, St. Patrick's day begins in the bars very early in the morning.  Local DJ's host parties at various bars.  Folks take the day off and celebrate, although in most cases I think they are merely celebrating an excuse to drink.  Green beer?  Yuck.  I know it tastes the same, but there is something about the green that does not appeal to this chick.  At least it is a beautiful day here...rain later, but fairly mild.  No one will freeze when they pass out in the street ;-)

I have to wonder just how many of the revelers know WHY we have a day of celebration for St. Patrick.

Do you?

Hanging In There

So ... seems like the daffs will make it...they aren't as green as they should be, but hopefully the sun and warm temps will keep them strong..

One of my co-workers, multi-tasking.  Sometimes, a girl has to do what a girl has to do to get the job done.
