July 9, 2009 — Albums

Just a quick shot of my line-up of scrapbook albums on my desk. Some of these are full, some are works-in-progress. The Disneyland one is full of layouts from the trip we took with Charissa in May 2006. Lots of memories there!

July 8, 2009 — Building

What I see every weekday morning — the front door of my office building. Probably not necessary, but I blanked out the address for the copy I’m posting here. My company has been in this building for 10 years – we used to be in the University District, but moved downtown to be closer to the airport and to potential clients.

July 7, 2009 — Bed

Another dog-themed picture. Fred is getting older (almost eight) and doesn’t always like laying on the hardwood floors.  He does have a pillow in his crate, and another large pillow in a different part of the room, but sometimes he likes being in the middle of the action. For this reason, we found this old piece of carpet (leftover from when we had the floors put in). It just lays in the middle of the floor and gives him a somewhat softer place to relax.

July 6, 2009 — Corgi

This is the sign that hangs on the posts on the front porch.  We bought it a few years ago at the Puyallup Fair, and it really sums up the theme of our house — ‘maintained for the comfort and convenience’ of The Fred.

July 5, 2009 — Lookalike

While we were in Olympia visiting Mom, we went to the local Farmers Market (just down the street from her building). In addition to the usual fruits, veggies and flowers, they had some local craftspeople. One booth was metal and iron work, and how could I pass up this adorable metal Corgi?! Fred was intrigued, but not enough to allow me to get a good picture of the two of them together. I had to tempt him by putting a biscuit next to it. You can see the corner of said biscuit in his mouth. Fred, not the other Corgi.

July 3, 2009 — Surprise

Husband was putting the recycle bin back on the side of the house, and noticed this old flowerpot was no longer empty! We thought these lilies had died – to our surprise they were growing strong with no watering or care of any kind. Such a pretty color!

July 2, 2009 — Moon

Taken from our backyard after work.  Nothing special – I just thought the moon was pretty impressive in the blue afternoon sky.

July 1, 2009 — Flowerbox

Just another example of the lovely summer flowers I see as I’m walking in downtown Seattle. These are in front of the Westin Hotel – I just love the color combination.

June 30, 2009 — Backyard

And with this picture, the year is half over! It was a lovely summer evening, so I thought I would climb to the top of the back bank and snap a picture of our backyard and the back of the house. Notice the dog walking down his path from the fence to the house. He has literally worn a path in the grass. Also notice the lovely large blue recycle bin – such an attractive addition to the backyard decor.
