October 27, 2012: Our Garden in Fall

Today was my first day trying out my new camera.  I borrowed one of Rob's lenses and headed outside.
Funky Fungus.
Miny Melon.
Bulbs are sprouting again.
The Japanese Maple is gorgeous in fall.
The kitty was difficult to get in focus, but she's still cute :)

October 26, 2012: We Vote

On the way to the ballot box, we saw a dead bird.  I'm sure that it is totally unrelated to our voting.
We dropped off our ballots and felt really good.
On the way home, we saw these neat leaf prints on the sidewalk.

Are they created by the falling leaves or are they permanent prints?  Only time will tell.

Pretty sky.

October 23, 2012: Poor Kitty

Kia has had a rough week so far.  Her blood glucose spiked this week which allowed some infections to set in.  She has an ear infection and a bladder infection, we suspect.  We will be going to the vet soon.

October 22, 2012: Birthday Present #4

As my final birthday present, Rob got me this cool purse.  I love it.

October 21, 2012: Happy Birthday Lisa and Birthday Present #3

My parents sent me some birthday money, so I bought myself a gently used Nikon D100.  Now I get to learn real photography :)

October 20, 2012: Brithday Drinks and Dinner

We went to Vault 244 for dinner and cocktails. Yum!
As usual, for dessert, we had the Coconut Dome, or as we like to call it, the chocolate boob :)

October 19, 2012: Birthday Present #2

Rob also bought me this beautiful ruby bracelet.

October 18, 2012: Birthday Present #1

Work has been busy.  We have been recovering from illness.  We have missed a few days of photos :(

October 8, 2012: Soup

I made two awesome soups, and we have been slowly eating them.  For me I made a curried lentil soup and for Rob I made a cheddar broccoli soup. Yum!

October 7, 2012

We bought Borderlands 2 and started playing it today.  It was a relaxing day.

We harvested a bunch of our spicy peppers and made a yummy chili paste.

Hot whiskey.  Yum!

October 4, 2012: Sick

Rob has been sick all week.  Now I am feeling it too.  We are taking lots of Vitamin C.

October 3, 2012: Nerd Day

So, today was nerd day for spirit week at school.  I decided to be a Star Wars nerd.  I made some Princess Leia hair using yarn and bobby pinned it to my head.  Then I made this brilliant attempt to photograph my head. Looks just like Princess Leia, right?

Rob took some better pictures :)

October 2, 2012: Cyclopes

Rob has been playing with the Ipad camera :)

October 1, 2012: Morning Sky

Took this picture on the way to work. The sky was so beautiful.

September 30, 2012: Back to Work Tomorrow

But today we went for a walk.  Rob had a little friend tag along on his sandal.
 No, we didn't actually complete a 10K, just saw the sign.

September 26, 2012

The view down our street this evening as I drove home from the grocery store.  It doesn't quite capture how beautiful it was.

September 25, 2012: Dead Lizard

Rob's class saw this lizard while it was still alive.  The students tried to convince Rob to bring the lizard inside to keep as a classroom pet.  Rob insisted that the lizard would be happier if it stayed outside in its natural habitat.  When they went back outside later in the day, they found a dead lizard.  The kids blamed Rob for the lizard's death for the rest of the day.
