This is what Sorry Looks Like

This is what Sad Looks Like

This is what Smug Looks Like

The Sorry and Sad pictures were sent from a friend. This image of Smug is the dude who owns our house, if you haven't met him.

Valentine's Day

I didn't manage to post anything in time for Valentine's Day, but I was thinking of y'all. Between 40 hrs./week at the cabinet shop, 8-10 hrs./week at WaterMonkey and 8-10 hrs./week doing Zulustudio freelance work I just haven't had much time for anything. I didn't even manage to bake any Valentine's cookies this year! (And you KNOW how I feel about that.) I ended up getting Michael a gift card to the Portsmouth Brewery and he's taking me out tool shopping this afternoon... we're so sentimental!

Just in case beer and tools don't do it for you, here are a couple pictures from the BBC of Valentine's Day across the globe... a Filipino man selling heart-shaped balloons in Manila, and...

a Vietnamese man selling beautiful flower arrangements in Hanoi.

Happy belated Valentines Day to you -- and thanks for understanding the infrequency of my blog posts lately.

Who, Who?

Thursday night after work I had dinner with our real estate agent, Barbara. She traveled to Kenya last year and had wonderful stories and photos to share. Beautiful landscapes, people, animals... really incredible photos. People I know who've visited Africa all say that it is a life altering experience. Maybe someday I'll get to experience it myself.

She also had some pictures of a barn owl that lives in the woods behind her house in Kittery, ME. Look at this guy, sitting on one of her bird feeders and later, on her porch railing! I've only seen owls in captivity. I've heard them before, but couldn't see where they were. What beautiful animals and amazing hunters. I made sure to ask if all her cats are kept indoors...
Thanks for emailing these great pictures to me, Barbara.
