Blog move

So, after all my hard work to get this site lookin' pretty, I was swept away by wordpress. Mostly by it's better ability to showcase pictures, which I find rather useful since I plan to be posting a lot. If anyone has me linked (riiiight), or bookmarked (riiiight), please take a moment to update using this: http://subtitledlife.wordpress.com/.

It's new, it's improved

it's... old fashioned?

Indeed, this is our new lawn mower.


I stole

These belong to Gabe, but I liked them so much I stole them from him. He doesn't use them anyway - his glasses are the type that transition.


Here I was thinking...

...that she was completely black.

I guess not.


My view

Just a sliver of the scenery around here.


While I'm at it

I thought I'd show you the back yard, too. And Patch. With Easter doing what she does best - chasing her.



These past couple days Gabe and I have spent at his parent's home. This picture is of part of their front garden, including some poinsettia plants - the tallest of which must be at least 6 feet in height. It wouldn't be surprising if they doubled their height eventually. And here most of us thought they were supposed to be small house plants!



To help force myself to develop what little skills I have with the camera, I've decided to try posting a picture a day for an undetermined length of time.

Here is today's. While actually taken over a week ago, at least people will know how much of a cheat I am from the start, so they will not be under any false assumptions.

I met this little guy after he had climbed through an open window into our house. He then proceeded to climb up me, seeing as how I'm apparently so tree-like.


Playing games

Since Gabe has been off in another city for going on a week now, we decided to spend some time "together" by playing a game of photo scavenger hunt. I made up a list of pictures we were supposed to find, and away we went, keeping touch once in a while during the day to see how the other was fairing. It was so much fun!

Here are my results.

Here are Gabe's results.

By the way, Gabe won. He got all the pictures first. I took too long trying to be artistic.


Today, as I was out walking Easter, Enrique, the man who is often out running at the same time stopped, and said to me with his small English: "Did you hear ... Michael Jackson died?"

"Oh," I thought to myself, "Michael Jackson - he's uh, that guy who... no he didn't play basketball, that was someone else. Oh, THAT Michael Jackson!"

Returning my complete attention to Enrique, I thanked him for telling me and applied a sad look to my face in hopes that it'd convey... something. It was apparent to me that Enrique did in fact, like MJ. I just didn't have the Spanish words to convey much of anything that I was truly thinking. So after the consolatory facial expression by me, and a smile from him, we went our separate ways.
