Scenes from Life

Found this box of old photos when I was going through my closet, deciding what should stay and what should go. I've donated almost half my wardrobe to charity and accumulated another few boxes of miscellaneous stuff to go to Good Will. We're moving next week!

Wearing stripes and dots. It's too hot to put on anything but paper-thin t-shirts and skirts.

This tree outside my building blossomed with a shock of yellow for a couple of weeks. Now, green seedpods dangle from every branch.

Trying to keep cool with frosty beverages. Some days I wish I could just climb inside my slurpee.

Proof that I occasionally eat foods that aren't desserts. In this case, I made vegetable lasagna.

I finally got that thread situation under control. A place for every spool and every spool in it's place.

Seeking shade under a leafy canopy.

What's everyone up to this weekend? I'll be doing lots and lots of packing, trying to sell some things at a flea market if it's not too hot, and eating my weight in popsicles.

  1. Oh boy! The joys of moving! Everytime I do it I swear it's the last time. I think I've moved about 8 times in my adult life. But this time I'm done....for real.

    I agree with you on the slurpee. It's been so hot that I'd like to crawl inside it too. I'm just afraid that with this heat, the ice would be melted before I had a chance to do so!

  2. Great pictures! The yellow flower one is so pretty. And I love slurpees too. :)

    Good luck moving! We plan on moving in the next year, and I dread the organizing. I hope it all goes smoothly! I'll be working on hand making 150 wedding invitations this weekend (because I am clearly insane).


  3. Lovely pictures. :) Gotta love moving... I will also be eating my weight in popsicles and trying to stay cool. :) -- Sea Marie

  4. Ah, moving. I'm glad I've had that over with before it got too hot outside!

    I love the pictures. That lasagna looks delicious.
    I'll be spending the weekend with friends. Dancing, estate sales, etc!

    Good luck on your move!!!

  8. I love looknig through old photos - what a great find!

  9. Wow. I had forgotten that printed photos existed, really! I guess moving is pretty exciting apart from being overwhelming. It does also give you a chance to seriously declutter, doesn't it!
