I have been shamed into updating my blog.

Thank you to Beth who has led the fight against the bare blog, and whose wrath has driven me to face my lonely blog and make amends. I owe you one.

Please enjoy the following pictures:


May 4th, 2010 – DeKalb IL

I walked out to my car after work that day and there were TONS of large birds flying overhead. Probably around 20, all looking like vultures or other large scavengers. It was really weird, so of course I took a bunch of pictures.

This is Atticus, son of Beth Of The Shaming. NinjaHusband and I went with the Atticus-Beth-Adam family to a park for a walk that day. It was a little overcast, so it wasn’t too hot and it was really great to get out of DeKalb for some delicious lunch and hangout time. Superawesome day.

Same day as above. While walking over a bridge I saw this pile of snail shells and pottery shards (?) that someone had created. It was so fun and reminded me of things I would collect in piles when I was a kid — putting different kinds of things together. I always imagined that some little chipmunk or cricket would come across the little piles and think they were exactly perfect for a new home. I have no idea why I thought that piles of moss or stones would make a good house for a wild animal, but there you go.

You do not know this man. There was definitely no drinking involved in this photo of the man you do not know. People who are thirty years old or more were definitely not involved, and you don’t know them.

So there you have it. One lousy month of pictures even though I owe the blog THREE months of pictures. It’s only because I’m lazy, not because I don’t like you. Look for more pictures soon. I feel an attack of POST ALL THE THINGS!!! coming on.
