Cosmos Portrait

Portrait of a cosmos flower...the watercolor edges just amaze me.

Bird, Do Sing; Bird, Don't Doo-Doo

This sweet bird was singing up a storm-tweet tweedle tweet tweet--which is quite nice. Not nice? The bird poop that lands below on my new car! (And B.'s car, too.) Go do that somewhere else, little bird.

Lemon Babies

Look! My new Meyer lemon plant has tiny lemons on it...I'm so excited! (It takes very little to excite me, obviously!)

Tallulah-Palooza Friday

Watch out, Tallulah Mae! There's a flying saucer coming in for a landing behind you! "Take me to your cutie-pie..."

Fleurs de l'amour

My lovely anniversary/Valentine's Day bouquet...the second flower is tuberose, which was in my wedding bouquet (and smells intoxicating!). Again, my sweet B.--he's a keeper (kiss kiss).

Behold: my new car! And not only is a new car to me, it's a NEW new car (which I've never had before in my life). This red-hot cutie is a present from my one-and-only red-hot cutie boy (my birthday is coming up soon...).

{Happy dance, happy dance, happy dance!}

Tallulah-Palooza Friday

 This is my dog.
This is my dog on drugs. No, really.

Tallulah Mae had her teeth cleaned on Tuesday, and here she is recovering from the anesthesia and on pain medication. Cute loopy girl!

Happy Love Day


It also happens to be my 28th wedding anniversary today...feels like just yesterday that we exchanged our vows on a hot hot HOT Los Angeles day! Luckiest girl ever = me!

Doggy Buggy

So sweet...I have to assume that this darling dog has mobility issues and that its owner takes it out in this pram. He/she was just parked outside a house (I could hear the owner talking to someone at the front door). Pretty darn cute!

Winged Jewels

Winged jewels--and noisy ones, too!

We came around the corner and saw these beauties feasting on berries...amazing! I love them...they squawk overhead several times a day.

Actually, hail YES! A rare occurrence here in SoCal...Short lived, but pretty cool!

Tallulah-Palooza Friday

The camera angle here makes her look like some sort of alien dog (a visitor from Planet Cutie-Patootey-Pie): "Take me to your biscuits, earthling..."

Hearty Day

Two random hearts in one day! I took the elastic out of my hair and threw it down on the counter--and there it was. And when I cracked open my baked potato, another heart.

Love is everywhere--my life is filled with it, and I hope yours is too.
