Photo Crazy

Breaking through the cobwebs here with a post of photos I’ve taken here and there lately. Or not so lately (is Christmas still ‘lately’?). I’ve been super busy with work. I’m not sure where the last two months have gone. This is the best job, best project team, best position, and best professional growth opportunity I’ve had in the last 3.5 years. We also have two weeks to get our house listed. We’re t.h.i.s. close to being done. The outside is being painted this week. Then it’s all onesy-twosy little things that irritate.

So here are some photos to entertain in lieu of interesting content.

My mom and her sister. They look nothing alike, right?

One night, Zed started a puzzle, out of boredom. He asked for my help. And we had so much fun doing the puzzle together, we decided to get another one. So a couple of nights a week, we spend a few hours talking, puzzling, laughing, and just spending good quality time together. The Garfield was our first. The pastoral scene is still in progress. It’s much harder.


When Nick and I took the cabinet from our bathroom, we found more velvet wall paper. This time it was green roses. I managed to tear it off the wall and keep it all in one piece. Pop thought it was ‘nice’, so I think I’m going to try to frame it for him. I can’t imagine an entire bathroom in green velvel wallpaper. There was very similar yellow velvet wallpaper in the guest bath. This house must have been the ultimate in 70’s hotness at one time.


And, finally, Zed at his Winter Concert last month. He was First Chair, and he had a solo in one of the three pieces they played. YAY! I was super proud of him. Sniff, he’s growing up so fast!


  1. Hey you…

    We had this bloody wallpaper (or one of its relatives) living on our walls. Fabulous!!!! I mean for the bathroom, nothing says pee like a velvet pattern!

    You are right though that is screams 70’s and our parents throwing their keys into a big bowl and swapping…

    (made that up – my mother would rather die, I am sure…think I was just living out my own 70’s fantasy…!!!!)

    Look at your big boy at the concert!

    And no, its impossible to believe your sister came from your mother….Worlds apart….



    🙂 I love retro…but not that much.

    I guess I wasn’t clear…that is mom my and HER sister. When I was growing up, people never knew which one of them was my mom. But MY little sister looks even MORE like my mom. We have strong genes on their side of the family tree!

  3. Um, that is so not your Mom.

    Do you ever get down on your knees give thanks that you have been blessed with unbelievably graceful aging genes. Or something.

    I like puzzles. And coloring. Very relaxing and conducive to conversation.

  4. Uh, which one is your mom????? Seriously!

    Ew velvet wallpaper, and in the bathroom no less. I’d much rather the snozberry wallpaper that you could lick than velvet.

    Yay for Zed, 1st chair! WHOOO!! I never even tried for first chair. That was too far out of my reach and I never practiced.
