April's Shower of Photos
April 1, 2009, 6:48 am

Do you recall the fun we had last year during the April's Shower of Photos? It was truly a highlight of the blogging year for me. There was no way I'd let April pass us by without photographing her this year either!

If you would like to join me in a month of photos again this year, please drop a comment into the comment box and I'll collect all our info into my sidebar. Set your own goals for the month or focus on a theme that interests you (spring flowers, macro photos, portraits, or perhaps the color green?) or simply have uploading one photo a day as your goal! Goodness knows that's all I'll get done some April days!

The above button may change as I'm not quite pleased with it yet, mainly because I did not take the photo! Aaah well, I suppose it gives me something to strive for. Let me know what you think!

I hope to make April's Shower of Photos a little Loveliness to look forward to each day, won't you join me?

Colorado Dinosaurs

Marianna was thrilled to visit the Denver Museum of Natural History. She still adores dinos and can chat the ins and outs of various paleo-topics with the best of them.

I adore this photo for some reason.



Michelle and I. Check out my awesome scarf. For the first time in 7 years I got to wear a scarf and had so much fun doing so.
Simple pleasures, simple pleasures...

10 degrees colder than our normal low.




Still worth braving for this sunrise.

Autumn Teas
October 3, 2008, 3:32 pm



A quick run into the store brought home a special autumn treat, new teas to taste today:

Cinnamon Twist - cinnamon and allspice
Mulled Apple - green apple, cinnamon, curry and pear
Trick or Treat - pear, pineapple and orange
Pumpkin Spice - cinnamon, melon and lemon
Thanksgiving - pomegrante, pineapple and orange
Jack O'Lantern Chai - melon, temple fruit and fig

Isn't it crazy what ingredients they combine to get a recognizable flavor, at least I hope it is a recognizable flavor! LOL! So many pears and melons included in these blends that I'm sure I would never have thought to combine to get a spicy autumny tea.



I have Thanksgiving and Cinnamon Twist brewing right now and they smell wonderful! Do you have a favorite tea for autumn?

Red Sails in the Sunset
A song I heard by Nat King Cole. These lines caught me, hook, line and sinker!
September 2, 2008, 9:34 pm

Red sails, the night wind is blowing
And clouds are hiding the moon
Above no bright stars are glowing
It means the storm's coming soon.

I think this qualifies as an only in Key West moment.

Isn't it pretty? Nearly as fascinating as candling eggs!

Lighter than Air
July 12, 2008, 2:53 pm



My second round of photos for Renee's photo challenge.


The last lighter than air aircraft to land at Boca Chica was in 1903 (or thereabouts). While working on another construction project they happened upon the century old blimp pad, dusted it off and opened it for business this week.



They are so quiet!
