WEEKEND REFLECTIONS--the turtles are out

It's warm enough here in Seattle (not that warm by my standards....) for the turtles at Green Lake to be out sunning themselves. Most line up on floating logs, but this individualist opted for a tree branch.  Is this a new stage in evolution, tree-climbing-turtles?

SKYWATCH--the pot bearer

There were several of these statues in Kirkland, Washington, and I found them really attractive.

ABC WEDNESDAY--"O" is for "Oh, my gosh!"

"Oh, my gosh!" is exactly what I said upon spying these remakes of a vintage plaid lunchbox I carried in grades three, four, and five.  I think a new one each year, since either the fastener loosened and my lunch fell out or else the (smaller than the big one shown) thermos cracked.

I dearly loved these lunchboxes....I can still smell the Lebanon bologna sandwiches with French's mustard (all on white  bread, of course....) that my grandmother packed for me.

If you want to see the originals, have a look at this lady's blog.

Cute little ham

My daughter and I were having  lunch the other day, and this little girl, over my daughter's shoulder definitely had an interest in my camera, which was on the table, yet untouched by me. I say 'yet', since as you see, I simply pressed the shutter a few seconds later, and there she is.

SKYWATCH--blue skies, blue building

And green  leaves to boot!  Spring has sprung.
