My husband turned 57 today and the weather has been the most pleasant it’s been since May. It feels like Maine weather and I love it. His folks came to visit for a little bit this afternoon and it was quite nice. His mum came bearing a homemade trifle (his favorite) and my husband’s eyes lit up when he saw it. I had told him that for his birthday, I would pick up crab cake sandwiches for dinner and now we could have trifle for dessert. But after they left, he told me he’d rather not have a big dinner, and asked if we could do something small. I know him . . . he wanted to have room for the trifle and if he could have had only that, he probably would have.
The following images were all taken with the camera phone in my Samsung Galaxy S4. I think I opened one or two up in PS to process and the others were edited using Aviary, a free download on the phone.
I took this one coming up the driveway last week when it was hot hot hot. Got the frame at Pave Sigaut on Flickr where there are a number of cool textures and frames – all free.
George gets a new toy.
And he hasn’t let up for days with wanting it tossed.
Over and over and . . .
I had blueberry pie last week that I warmed in the microwave and topped with ice cream.
The sky one recent evening.
And the new sofa, which arrived yesterday afternoon from Ethan Allen.
I ordered one in their Express line, which took just over three weeks from the date of sale to the arrival date (and it was on sale).
It’s much easier on my husband than what was there before. We won’t even go into that story, but I will say that what was there before was the small part of the old sectional and it was very uncomfortable.
I don’t really have much else so I’ll be back later.
