Lucky for me, I call a few things ‘awesome’ now and then on my Flickr photo site. Glad I do that as I have 12,800 photos there right now!
This was from the 2008 Philly Flower Show. I like everything about the display from the ‘keyboard’ table, to the way the flowers are arranged and what they are in and the lighting effects. Look at how the napkins on the plates have polka dots! And the lady in the background is really taking it all in! Wow!
I decided it was time to dig through the oodles of Easter stuff I have and get some decorating (and cleaning done). I got about half way done in the living room before my back started to complain. It’s been annoying off and on since I worked at the store. So these are close-ups and taken with the phone. More to follow. I really need to do more tidying around the house. Did I mention my teeth/gums are still bothering me too? Poor Brian wanted to squeeze in the dental insurance before the 31st and had 6 fillings yesterday. I went with him and the dentist said it appeared that just my gums were inflamed and by the way, since you are here, let’s do a filling-oy. We were there 2 hours. Tomorrow I go to the GP to get a BP check and I should really mention my back, but we won’t have coverage after the 31st until we find some.
I just got the Easter Snowbabies in Maryland at an antique store
This is an app for the iPad2. So much fun watching Cosmo play with it. I have a protective cover on it.
And this is a video of my front window made from the iPad:
For some reason, we left the camera on a high ISO rating, thus the photos are not as sharp as they could have been.
Mom’s Christmas fairy display
Part of her massive lighted house display (my brother did a ton of decorating)
Me and her dog Kelsey
The Comcast offered a roaring fire for atmosphere
We had turkey, ham, stuffing, cranberry sauce with walnuts and mandarin oranges and what I made puffy cauliflower casserole and ultimate green beans. The recipe called for a pinch of hot pepper flakes and must have really ‘activated’ when my brother reheated them. They were way too spicy.
I’m wearing a vest I’ve had for a while with a new top. Both Brian and Sean are wearing new shirts. You can tell Brian’s been sick from his dark circles. He’s getting there. These were taken before the tablet cracked. After that, we were kind of sad for the rest of the evening.
Update-Sean was able to return the tablet and get a refund. We’re saving up for a better brand that doesn’t break as easily.
Sean had off on Tuesday, so we decided to go out to lunch as I had a gift card for a Chinese restaurant. I try to eat salmon when I see it on the menu, so that’s what I got on brown rice. Sean had chicken and almonds. We both had egg drop soup. We went over to Pier One and I bought a few sweet things. I didn’t even take anything out of the bag as I had to go to work from 5-10. We then went across the road to Terrain and I took some photos with my camera phone of their unique display:
Gorgeous red Amaryllis
This was a two tiered tin planter with tiny white Poinsettia around the bottom and dainty Narcissus
This is real cotton in a display. They also pulled it apart to look like a snow covered tree. You can see it in the first photo well.
Sunday and Monday I dedicated to making cookies. I made Chocolate chips, Sour Cream Drops, 7 layer cookies, Peanut butter swirls, Cinnamon chip oatmeal and Rum balls.
I am on call again in the morning, so hoping not to have to go in, but I’m doubting that. Then they get me again on call Thursday and I work Friday morning. I mainly need to clean the house now.
This isn’t a great shot as I still needed more lights on the bottom (think there are 500 on it now) and taken with the cellphone. I’ll get around to more decent shots. The lights are green and gold and the gold blink (Sean’s request). I have mostly new things on it and only went through one box of older decorations. There’s a red and green adorned angel on the top and I added some of those red and white berries. The decorations are mainly red, white and green. It looks neat when all the gold go off at once.
