All over the place

Just some things that I’m thinking about off the top of my head, so please don’t expect much. I took a walk around the property and shot these photos after work today. It was right after I did some exercises in the yard and some jumping jacks.

I’m serious. And they make you pee, you know.

George loves this weather. I think he also likes the fact that he doesn’t get chapped lips from too much frisbee playing.

This is what the house looked like coming up the driveway after work. My husband picked me up today and brought George for the ride. That dog would have loved to get out at the school, but there were kids everywhere. And little kids freak him out. He tries to hide.

I was just playing around here with Michelle Black’s Soft Bleach-out Glaze action and one of her free textures.

I forgot about Pioneer Woman’s snapfish album contest and I was scrambling to get mine finished. The deadline was extended until tonight. Only problem is that I now have two entered. I thought that going back in and editing it would make it change in her group room. But I was wrong.

I’m wrong a lot.

On my walk around the property this afternoon, I see George running down to greet me. He’d been playing frisbee with my husband up by the house. He wants me to come up there and watch him. If he could talk, I know he’d be saying “Watch this, mommy.” Of course, now that I’ve remembered those days when my children used to always say that, I feel a tiny bit sad.

He leaps. He scores. He is the frisbee king.

He loves it when I say, “Good dog, George.” And “Great catch”. I can tell he loves it, you know.

A quick shout out here to Terrie and her co-workers at Johns Hopkins Bayview. Thanks for stopping by again and enjoying my dog photos. And thanks for all the children’s books that you always give the school library, Terrie.

Another shout out to one of my favorite parents at our school. Hi, Cindy. Yes, you Cindy M.

I know you read this blog sometimes, but what you don’t know is how talented you are. You are a natural photographer and your portraits are amazing. But girl, you gotta try digital.

So hi. And you can stop blushing now.

I gots the frisbee. I gots the frisbee.

He is so proud of himself as he prances to bring it back and have it thrown to him again. And again. And again. And . . .

Oh, I just remembered. Survivor is on tonight.

Thanks again, everyone, for stopping by. I’m thinking of having another giveaway soon. Just a heads up. It’s going to be a free 10x12 print, so stay tuned.

Until tomorrow, my friends . . .

Border Collies are seriously the coolest dogs ever.

Mine gets scared around lots of people he doesn't know... He was a rescue and still gets a little nervous sometimes.

Beautiful shots and that green...George looks like he loves it too!

Maria said...

George is so photogenic, you get the black and white to look so crisp. Beautiful coming up your drive, I think I would just sigh everytime. The tree shot is very interesting, so good to look at things from different perspective

Pony Girl said...

Brilliant photographs of George - he looks one happy dog to me.

troutay said...

If your dog is like my black lab, he will only stop catching the frisbee when he is totally exhausted. And that takes awhile.

Delphine said...

What a lovely post! Love your george, I am like you and talk for my dogs -I just KNOW what they are thinking. i also admire the all your grass is neatly cut--who does the mowing? In our property it's me! Like you we have loads, but the ride-on makes it fun!

TSannie said...

I do think that florescent green frisbee is definitely George's best color. Second to last pic is just perfection!

Mental P Mama said...

George is just the best. Well, besides Dora. Oh, and don't get me going about the pee/jumping jacks/exercise business.

imom said...

I just love that last shot of George! My dog does that "come watch me" thing with his body and eyes to me too. My daughter is still of an age where she still says that too!

Starwoodgal said...

Spring is looking lovely there in MD. Love the photos of George.

Egghead said...

I hear you on the pee thing. That is why I tell my husband I won't do jumping jacks with him. Ha ha! I really can't even imagine him doing jumping jacks. He's a bit stodgy. Love the photos of George.

Cindy said...

All I can say is wow! You have such a beautiful home and yard. Beautiful photos. Love George too.

Deb said...

You were right, girl. I am happy these days. Still no jobs but life is so much more than worry. Looking at George and the frisbee makes me happy.
Have a grand weekend with your son.

xoxo
