203/365 Settling in


Considering that we recently moved to a new home, this is very accurate! Now y'all, tell me, am I really selfish and eccentric? Be nice and don't say anything about my little rooster! =]


Thanks to Jay and Mindy for the shot idea!

201/365 New bedfellow

Bill left for Uganda two days ago, and look who's made himself at home in Bill's spot in our bed! Porter, you are too cute!

199/365 Off to Uganda

Bill took off today on a mission trip in Uganda! What an exciting new adventure for him and the other missioners (a few are pictured here: Marissa, Toni, & Susan). The youth and some adults from our church have been going to Uganda for a number of years, but this is Bill's first time. Prayers are much appreciated.

Love you and miss you already!

198/365 Wren

Well darn! I wish my focus was better on Wren's sweet face, but I did capture a great smile on grandma's face! I sang with a small ensemble at church on Sunday and during the second service, I couldn't help but play a little (we are in the balcony) since I'd already been through the service earlier. :o)

197/365 HP7P2


It's Bill's & my 28th wedding anniversary and Bill, Alex, Liam, his sister and parents, and I are sitting on the floor, waiting in line to see Harry Potter 7, Part 2 - the final installment, in what has been an awesome ride! Only a few minutes later the line wound around in front of me. The only books I have ever re-read (exception being The Holy Bible) are the Harry Potter books. I've seen all the movies, of course, and this one was a superb finale!

192/365 Phones

We met our friends, Anita and Johnny, tonight for dinner. Anita had finally gone the smart phone route, and so we all pulled out our phones to compare the iPhone with Android. Johnny had us in stitches trying to MAKE his phone be "smart!" Thanks for a fun evening!

191/365 Freckles


I just love this boy! I love his freckles; I love how the sun has bleached his eyebrows and hair strawberry blonde. Just saying...

189/365 Old screen doors

These old wooden screen doors remind me of when I was very young and I would visit my grandpa's general store in Camp Wood, TX. This one happens to be at Spring Creek Barbecue. Just the sound of the door takes me back...

188/365 Teriyaki Bowl


Sometimes I have lunch with James at a little restaurant very close to where he works, called Teriyaki Bowl.
Today as we were leaving I spied this lovely fan on the wall.

186/365 Booksellers


We are still de-cluttering and down-sizing. Is there no end? Thank goodness we can sell those books. Keep lifting those books Bill; it's great for the arms!

185/365 Happy Birthday America!


I've always enjoyed the 4th of July; I feel such pride for our country! Through thick and thin, we stand together.
This is my best photo of the night, setting the camera on the car door for stability.

184/365 Leaving for Colorado

Alex and Liam, waiting for everyone to arrive so they can pack up for the youth mission trip to Colorado.


Well, I'm not proud of this shot, but it was 4 in the morning. I need to work on my people shots... and composition... and white balance... etc.
