Day 52

There was a time that trains had a bit of mystery to them, they were romanticized. Ah the good old days. Now they’re graffiti targets. Such a shame.

Day 51

Every day this week, the sky has threatened rain. It is like watching a fight between rain clouds and the sun. The sun wins agan.

Robbie got a new car! After 10+ years driving an SUV, he went for a more economical choice. Erm, more so on gas than car cost. heh. Mazda 6 just don’t ask me what year.

Day 45

Picking up Paige and her friends from their band car wash. Can you tell it was a long hot day in the parking lot. Poor kids don’t look as if they have much energy left.

Ever just look at a house and think.. that would make a cool sim house, I wonder if I can build that.. this is one of those houses. I haven't tried yet, but I will.

Day 37

On my way in to work. See that building in the hill right there? Yup, that is work. Oh and that is no typo, the bottom floors (aka the parking floors) are built 'in' to the hill while the rest is 'on' the hill.

Day 35

Stepping out of the office door, we have a balcony.. of sorts. It looks over the lobby which has a glass wall three stories high. This is the view out that window tonight at 8:30 pm. Unfortunately the picture doesn't do it justice.

Day 34

Every day I pass this part of the scenery on my way into the parking garage at work. And I have to smile. I realize it isn't much but if you look closer in all the brown and green drabness...

There is one plant, defiant, colorful and blooming. (ignore the cup. some people have no class)

Monday mornings mean one thing... Chick-fillet! While there we saw a poor kid stuck in a cow outfit! Too funny.. just as the camera clicked, the poor shmuck fell on his face! Now that was priceless, shame I only have him on his way down...

Day 30

On my drive home there is a certain stop light that I almost always catch a red at. If you remember ten days ago (May 19th) I took pictures at night, one of them was from that stop light. Today as I sat at that same stop light I chuckled. When the sun is up, its not even remotely as impressive.

Day 29

I had to go downtown today. Greer building is across the street from the capitol. Unfortunately from where I was parked, the trees were in the way of the whole building, so I simply zoomed in to the top portion.

Day 28

I forgot to post this last night. Anyhow, yesterday on my way to work, it was overcast and getting darker. The sky was threatening rain. When off to my left the sun dared peek out one last time before the clouds opened up.

Today the rain took a break. It was a beautiful day. Absolutely sunny and bright... how does that impact my family? The gaming family? The nerd family? Uh.. it doesn't. Today is like any other day. See? My kids doing what they do every weekend.
*pokes the kids* Ya, they're not moving.

Day 22

Early on in this project, I posted Peanut's new shoes. One pair was specifically for 'the' dress for her banquet.
As requested... 'the' dress.

And because I'm mean and evil, I'm posting this one... that is the look of annoyance, now if only I could remember what the boy said to her... *grins* She is so her mother's child...

Day 21

I was at work rather late tonight. Yes again. This time only to 7:30 not 9pm. Anyhow, I was pulling my purse out of my drawer and grabbing my keys, you know. The usual things one does before leaving the office each night: restart the computer, straighten the desk, prioritize things for the next day, leave nothing out that is confidential, grab your stuff and get the frell out. Only tonight I realized, I can't put things away, there is too much to prioritize, thankfully none of it is confidential but still. My desk is a nightmare! This is what happens when you go on vacation for a week. I've stayed late almost every day to get my desk back. I think I've finally made a dent.

Everything on the left is to be filed, everything on the right is either data input or expense reports. *cringes* ah well... job security.

Day 20

I was at work rather late tonight. Ya, don't ask. Anyhow, I thought, "ooo... a night sky" and it looked cool... so I thought, lets see how my camera handles this.

Interesting... that was the camera propped on my shoulder while moving... this one I stopped at a red light. I love my camera!

Day 16

Traditionally when I go on vacation, I read. A lot. Not just on the plane, but in the hotel room or by the pool or whenever we aren't doing something else.. this past trip I made it through both Twilight and New Moon so when I got home, Peanut handed me book three; Eclipse.

From May 10 - 13 Robbie and I went to New York. I had no access to a computer so I had to wait until we got home to update. Anyhow, while on the ferry at Ellis Island, Robbie looked up and asked if I saw what he saw.. yup. I did. It was beautiful.

Day 9

The view from the office window... one of the reasons I love Austin. Its city enough for me, yet country enough for da hubs. Hmmm... shame its such a hazy day.

Today at lunch we were vaguely talking about this project and Thomas asked if I take a pic of myself every day... uh no! how boring. *yawn* he 'dared' me to post one so...

Day 8

My father and his wife are on their way home from Hilo, Hawaii. I saw these and thought of them. *ponders* Actually by the time this is posted, they'll be home. Anyhow, I love the rich color of this plant... not that I know the name of it.

Speaking of plants, I saw these and thought... I want it! Now to figure out what the name of it is and talk my gardener and hubs in to getting it for me.
