Photos: Spring Flowers

More photos. I can hear the excitement from here – the two blog subscribers are sighing and thinking, “Don’t you do anything else?” The answer to that is sure, but none of it is blog worthy. In April I felt blog worthy, I felt like I had things to say but now… not so much.

Anyway, some pretty flowers for you.

Happy early Fourth, by the way.


Some random winter photos

Yes, I said winter. I know, it’s July, but that’s how behind I am on photos. I thought about skipping them, but there are some cool ones, so…

As to more recent events, we are officially home owners. Yes, we finally closed and taken possession. They have even taken it off Zillow. Finally. I can’t use that word enough, considering that the closing date was moved five times after they finally acknowledged that they’d accepted the offer. Let’s just say I’m not planning to do this again. I’ll skip my tirade on new homeowner’s terrors (There are a lot of these) and just say a simple “yay”. The brother and I will be heading up there on the 5th and will stay there for all of July painting, cleaning, dry walling, etc. Fun times, I’m sure.

Blah, blah, blah. Here’s the pics.


Exciting, huh? Not much else to say so have a good one, all.

Photos: August Flowers


These were growing outside the church where we had Uncle Mike’s funeral. You can see by the rain drops on some of them that it had been raining earlier. I’m glad it did. It’s always been “lousy” weather whenever they buried a Mutchler. I’d hate for that to be ruined. Despite the fact I was officially a Harris and am now a Naylor I am planning for a hurricane when they have my funeral 😉

Old Flower Photos

(originally from May 2008)


Yes, here are MORE flower photos! Oh wow, huh? I actually got caught by a neighbor taking these and we had a discussion on whether I was a painter or not. Apparently her niece was one and she would wander around and take her own reference photographs and the neighbor would say “That’s not a pretty picture” and her niece would tell her “You just wait till I get it done” and sure enough, they always were beautiful when she finished them.

an ant on the peonies – it’s the only time I am jealous of ants. Imagine being tiny enough to climb inside one of those. Wouldn’t it smell beautiful?

Exciting, huh? So, did you guys like the photos like this better, or in the galleries better?  Yeah, I’m going to go ahead and schedule some more like this while I have the chance, but your opinion will be noted for future ones 🙂

New Photos: Clouds, Flowers & Paper Plates


And it’s ANOTHER new blog. Holy crap, the world may be ending. Oh wait, that was last month. Well, so much for that. In that case I guess you’ll have to suffer through some more photos! Sorry. Okay, not really.  Gwahahahahahahaha!

mysterious paper plates in our parkinglot that make a big W

got up one day to find paper plates laid out in front of our building in the shape of a W…. What could it mean? *gasp*


looks like an ordinary discarded pape rplat

it seems normal enough, but we all know it is a sinister message… avoid W’s! (hee-hee)

There should be another one pretty soon about our trip through the creek.

Photos: Arizona Cactus and Such

(originally from January 2008)


My mother and I were invited to Arizona for a week to visit my cousins Theresa and June. It was the first time I was ever out of the midwest (not counting babyhood trips), as well as my first time on a plane. I went berserk documenting it and, though I won’t share all the photos, there are some fun ones.

Just boring people with cactuses…or whatever the plural of that is. Cacti maybe? Hmmmm…. anyway and a few other plants…





Cam-o-flaug-ey – ha ha!


Plant or tree?

More tomorrow (oh this trip will never end! Bwahahaha!)
