I (heart) b&ws

I admit it.

I like these more.

There's something about black and whites that I fall for every time.
I find so much more feeling in them.
Color distracts me.
And I find peace and the most detail in colorless photos.

No, you may not notice the sandy toes as much,
but that smile jumps out and joy shouts like a trumpet.

Is it just me?
Am I lovesick for black and whites?

Hooray for the sun! and Father's Day links

After many days of rain,

the sun is OUT!

Can you hear the angels sing?

After a surprise lunch visit from Daddy-O,

we did this...

and lots of this...

giggles and sandy toes.

With quite a bit on the calendar here, we're trying to get geared up for Father's Day.

~ This is your cue to stop reading and close this page, C ~

You didn't, did you?

We found lots of cute ideas over at these places...

And we made a few of these with paper.

I've got a few tricks up my own sleeve that I refuse to divulge because I know that C can't help himself and he's reading this even as I speak type.  Let's just say they involve sewing and t-shirts.

no rest for the weary

Having a hard time finishing up my projects this week,

but he's not losing any sleep over it...

Wish I could say the same.

We've been so busy this week that I resorted to packing up my machine and all my stuff
and camping out at the church while the man was at school.
It helped.  I've made accomplishments.

Tonight we'll be out again,
playing t-ball.
I'm hoping to get some great shots of the man.

This is finished...

Yes, it's chock full of wholesome corn-iness.

~ Just my style! ~

Now, now, you'll have to wait until the weekend to see more.
That's all the sneak peaks you're getting!

the adventures of Daisy

Daisy-girl had a quick appointment with Dr. B today for a booster.
These short trips don't excite her in the least,
but she's a good sport.

And she got a yummy,
that she refused to eat until she was safely back in the car.

So, upon our return,
it was time to reward her with some much needed play time and running.

And she found a partially buried bone in the yard.


After she'd been out for a good hour and a half,
ripping and running,
we packed her bone full of peanut butter and put her back in her pen.
To await some weekend coon hunting.

That's where she loves to be.
