I meant to ask this morning and forgot until I got to school. Does anyone have a photo from this week that they'd like to share?

These are my DD's brand new very purple cross country spikes. She is starting 9th grade on Monday and has been trying out for the cross-country team. She has worked so very hard! This week she ran in a time trial (only the second one) and ran fast enough to make it on the list of kids going to invitational meets. I'm so proud of her!

This is one of my cats hanging out on the steps into our den. She gets a nice view of the rest of the house. Plus, she has a place to rest her little chin!

Amiga, congratulations! Losing weight is hard work! I lost four pounds over the summer and was proud of that but you did even better! Congratulations on your self-discipline!

There are quite a few blossoms and fruit on it. I hope the fruit proves to be edible or at least ornamental!

These three love their afternoon nap. Evie, the kitten, is feeling under the weather. She had her vaccinations yesterday. Her leg is very stiff and sore.

It's hard to get ready for work when this pitiful little baby is crying and pawing at your ankle. Don't let that face fool you. She's 7lbs of sass.

Yesterday, we took DS to the zoo. It's been a crappy week and he's already asking to go home.

We decided to go see the new baby giraffe born this weekend. SO CUTE. I asked DS if he wanted to try feeding the giraffes. Usually, he says yes, but chickens out when it's time to actually feed them and says, "You do!"

For whatever reason, yesterday he was brave and fed them. I only wish DH had gotten video of DS's hysterical belly laughs.

This is him, feeding a giraffe, while laughing hysterically...

I did not take this picture, but it is of my old school. Construction started the first day of school. As another friend posted, "Keeping it classy." because of the porta potty next to the school sign.

This was my street yesterday. Yes, that is a giant pile of dirt completely blocking it in one direction. The town is replacing water mains and started digging up our street in June (they were directly at the end of my driveway the day I had 2 interviews.) They finally come back to finish the job and are digging huge holes in everyone's lawn. Can't wait for it all to be done. The town has been a maze to navigate, driving and pushing a stroller over gravel is annoying and it's hard to get the baby to sleep or nurse with a backhoe outside the window!

I have tons of precious baby pictures too but I'd rather not put too many of them on the internet!

DS (almost 16) worked at a farm this summer and used part of the money that he earned on these sneakers. The rest went into his saving account.

I was there earlier this week. I walked the street where Heather Heyer and others were hit by James Alex Fields. This was on the side of one of buildings.

Love all your pictures.

I have a picture I would like to post but I won't.
It is a picture of a grandma age woman holding a newborn.
It turned up in a package of prints I picked up at Walmart.
I have no clue who it is but chances are PT could solve the mystery.

Lisa --- My vote is acorn squash. But the stem is suspiciously pumpkin-like.
Maybe you have created a new species.

CatLove --- OMG. That tree trimming guy has me freaking out. I used to go up in our bucket as high as the top of a pear tree and thought I was brave.

A local church has agreed to sponsor our staff toilet paper for the year. (Our district provides half ply see-through sandpaper.) This is the real soft real thick plush good stuff.

On the second day of school for our district and the first for a neighboring District the same church put out a scan code on their Facebook for teachers across the valley to use at Starbucks. You could get a coffee and then post the amount left. They kept adding to the balance. I got a horchata iced coffee yum.

This is the pic that I posted on their Facebook page thanking them.

Tagging the migrating monarchs is in full swing at my house! Some people have never seen what it looks like, so here is a photo. It is a little sticker that is placed on the underside of a lower wing. Does no harm to the butterfly.Click image for larger version

Here is a picture of my son, at school, viewing the eclipse. Notice the complete lack of other kids around. They had everybody on lockdown. A total travesty.

This guy had strep this week. How? I don't know because no one else has it in his class or school. But here he is at home with me on Wednesday (day 6 of the school year) and he found and kept 5 pacis. Happy as a clam!

I'm a little late...

I'm taking an online Abstract Expressionism art course where we do art in the style of certain artists. I finished my art in the style of Jackson Pollock. It was So! Much! Fun! I used half of an old pillow case and several cans of old house paint. I flung it around with the paint stirrers. Man and I liked it so much that he made a frame for it, I stretched it onto the frame and there it is on my wall.

Thanks for your kind comments. I'm pretty pleased with that painting. I've also done paintings in the style of Barnett Newman and Willem de Kooning. The next artist is Mark Rothko. It's a really cool course.

The course I'm taking is through Coursera, called In the Studio: Postwar Abstract Painting by The Museum of Modern Art. It started Aug 14 but I think it runs every month. It's free unless you want to get a certificate in which case it's about $60 USD.
