Lupine Evening

Balmy evening with the sun going down is the perfect time to capture these beauties.  Oscar yanking on his leash had a tendency to ruin the moment,,,but we got through it.  Especially when I dumped him back in the house and walked back out to take pics in peace!
It's blurry...but I am on a mission to capture these guys on film!  They have been flitting inbetween our houses in the turnaround.  I am even contemplating tempting the bears to put a feeder...They are so pretty!  (The birds, not bears...) 

Volunteered today - the art department is slowly closing up shop for the year.  Next week, last time for the year, hope like heck-ola it is not as hot for Sports Day as it was today!

Fun quilt shop hopping tomorrow...

Really, I am still here.

Otter outside the Angry Trout restaurant in Grand Marais, MN.  Really good food!  The otters come back each spring, cause it's pretty good treats there at the Angry Trout! 

Gosh, I don't know why it's so hard to post!  I have been super busy.  Had a great time at Bluefin with Jill.  Have gotten almost done with Sue's purse.  Have a great tutorial on the way for the Dragonfly quilt.  Giving it to the guild this Thursday night.  Super busy with baseball website stuff.  Designing graphics for Monique's glass business...taking care of a sick, hershey squirty dog, volunteering at school, normal housework and yard work stuff...whew, no wonder I don't post!  I am gonna figure out if I can post easily from my droid...

My father-in-law is the absolute best!  He was out in the rain for 3 hours putting my new garden gate.  He did such, such a nice job!  He is building me a new raised bed too!  He has extra strawberry plants for me and I get to put those into that new bed.  I am actually gonna have a garden instead of a rabbit buffet!

I took a few video download classes today from Quilting Arts - Judy Coates-Perez.  Painted Bird and Painted/Collaged Cloth.  Hmm, I think I have found my artistic sister! 

Got my mother's day present today - a new/used Canon EOS Rebel Xi.  Too rainy to take outside and test out the super cool telephoto lens.  Can't wait to play with it.

Alright then - I am off to eat a go-gurt with Maxi.
