Yesterday's Pics

Yesterday we went picture hunting.

I've decided to change the header & a couple of side pics for winter/summer.  I was going to do all 4 seasons, but the truth is spring & summer don't show all that differently in our coniferous part of the country.  If i find i'm wrong next fall i will change, but i don't think so.  

So, here we are:

Yeah, i put them up there.  Jazz stayed for a while.  Mac didn't stay long.  Duane caught Jazz while jumping down, but not quite the shot he wanted.

These are the flowers Duane got me for my BD.  But i have to put them up high where the cats can't get to them & knock them over.  The vase was a wedding gift & i don't get to use it very often.  

Isn't the basil beautiful?  I wish i could say i grew this, but i bought it at the health food store last week.  Duane thinks it smells "stinky" but i like it a lot. 

Just different pics of around the lake & the mountains.  The crane in one of the above pic is building a new bridge to bypass the road over the dam.  The dam is unable to continue to handle the stress of the road on top of it.  

Then we ended up at a steak house for dinner with my BD money, but i had crab.  They brought me lots of crab, so i'm going to have crabcakes later in the week.  :)

I kept trying to get a pic of the moon in the blue, blue sky, but this is the only one that was even close to good.  

Isn't this pico de gallo beautiful?  I worked so hard on this today to go with Duane's fajitas, which were also a lot of work.    I made the pico de gallo with parsley instead of cilantro, because Duane doesn't like cilantro.  Turns out he doesn't care for pico de gallo at all.  Next time i need not bother.  It's ok.  It will go into a spaghetti sauce later in the week.

I love these photos, so gorgeous and you are very blessed to be surrounded by all the beauty.

I had to chuckle about the basil, I used to think it was stinky too but now I really like it. I also think that the pico de gallo looks delicious!

Great pictures. I really enjoyed reading the posts on your blog. I would like to invite you to come over to my blog and check it out. God bless, Lloyd

The sunshine looks so inviting. I think today will be sunny here after so much rain. Tell Duane that basil does not stink;) (LOL)

great pictures~ cracks me up that Duane thinks the basil is stinky!!! i love the smell!

Kathryn said...

Yes, Rosemary, we are blessed beyond words! :)

I don't know, basil has grown on me a lot (although i find growing it a challenge!) I like the smell, it seems fresh to me.

Hi Lloyd - thanks for coming by & taking the time to visit. :) I dropped by your blog (i don't often follow publicly). You have very strong beliefs! You might enjoy my other blog on my spiritual journey.

Hi Mrs. Mac! I do so enjoy the sun. I lived in Portland for one fall. It was their sunniest in years & i loved it, but i don't think i could live there long. I love the sunlight so much; i would miss it there. Hope you have sun (i know you're not in Portland) soon. Get your garden growing. :)

I don't think any of us can change Duane's mind about the smell.

Just Me - dear one. :) How nice of you to stop by. Glad you like the pics. I don't know what to do about Duane's nose. I find it quite a challenge at times. :)

Gorgeous pix Kathryn.

Love your hanging ornaments LOL.

The basil is thriving so well.

You look so happy with the flowers.

Stacey said...

Sorry I've been absent for a while. Hope you had a great birthday! I love daisies, too. They are so pretty and so cheerful!

That pico de gallo looks wonderful.

I've heard of hanging herbs to dry from the ceiling--but CATS?

Beautiful picture of you holding the flowers Duane gave you, Kathryn! Oh, the vase and flowers were beautiful, too.

Kathryn said...

Thanks, Amrita. :) We like our funny hanging ornaments, too.

I don't deserve much credit for the basil. Bought it this way. I'm really struggling to keep my herbs going well. Maybe i should move them outside for the summer, except the nights are still in the low - mid 30s. That would kill the basil quickly.

Hi Stacey - i know you've a lot on your plate right now. So busy getting ready for Lily. :) I appreciate you stopping by & commenting. Hope life gets a calm, peacefulness in the next few weeks, 'cause after that it will be a while.

Funny, funny, Jes. :)

Thank you. I rarely like pics of me, but i appreciate it. Glad to know people like me despite my own thoughts on my appearance. ;)
