happy valentine’s day


hoping there is plenty of love in your life. this year, i am fortunate to have plenty even though my valentine is traveling far away.  we don’t tend to celebrate valentine’s day on the very day what with restaurants being crowded and all prix fixe. i am looking forward to a big celebration when he gets home on monday. until then, i have have a beautiful arrangement to enjoy.

what are you planning with your valentine?

cheers, dana

deer go toddling by


today its a bit gloomy around here. it was supposed to snow, but it’s just kind of spitting instead. i was hoping for some real white. we need it! it was nice to see the deer outside the office window. they come by every day about noon.

cheers, dana

at the lake

this past sunday, i spent most of the time studying. except for this little boating break to get sunshine on my eyeballs and some captures in the camera. do you need a little fresh air? give yourself a little virtual break!

sunday in september on the lake. we took out the row boat for a short cruise.

there’s a view of the homestead. the dogs run around the lake chasing us. except one.












captain and the first mate. the pug would rather ride in the boat and he gets nervous if we leave without him.

raining sunshine.

lucy’s post-swim shake off. you have to look carefully to make out her face.
