12 of 12: July

12 of 12! 12 of 12! 12 of 12!

For more on this photographic phenomenon (sorry about that; it's late)--origins story, more entries, etc.--see Chad Darnell's blog. Until then, here we are.

8:51 - Up.

8:52 - You know how they say pets and pet owners begin to look alike...?

9:17 - Writing in bed. I've got friends visiting this week--lazy mornings let them sleep and give me some down time. And now you know my anti-social pretending-to-be-accommodating secret.

10:52 - Big trucks, puffy clouds, and overwhelming greenery: I-95 to Baltimore.

12:50 - Camden Yards before the Baltimore-Toronto game, our third major-league game this week (following Washington-Atlanta and Philadelphia-Cincinnati).

12:53 - Meet Paul and Alison, good friends to myself and also to baseball.

3:00 - The world's largest ballpark soft-serve, slightly licked. (The day was hot; the walk from the ice cream stand was long.)

4:31 - Root root rooting for the home team. It worked. Score: Baltimore 4, Toronto 2.

7:13 - I was in this entirely for the pineapple-jalapeno salsa, but the rest of it turned out to be spectacular as well. Well done, Surfside! Your yellow rice and lime sour cream are delicious!

8:08 - Hanging out on the roof deck at Surfside, waiting for the temperature to drop. At all.

9:15 - Packing my favorite very wrinkly sundress for a quick overnight to New York, so as to see Jon Stewart tape and possibly have other adventures with the friends.

10:32 - We come full circle.

Aw... Sherlock! I love you, Sherlock!

Funny how we both have cat-wake-up pics. I didn't use my own wake-up pic as I looked dreadful and had taken 40 pics to choose from.

Sounds like the game was fun (if hot)! I'll be at bball next weekend - Erik's mom's coming up for the annual cross-fam bball adventure.

KITTY! And that FOOD! and the ICE CREAM! Oh Liz, I wish we could hang. Your sunday looks awesome.

I didn't do mine on account of my life is boring as hell. But it would have included the sweet potato fries i made for dinner, which were yummy.

Erica said...

Your dinner looks delicious!

Mom said...

Hmmm-- you and Sherlock are looking more alike every month.
I wish I could go to Surfside with you for lunch today. I miss going to Arizmende with you!

Pete said...

Love the first two pictures :) And that ice cream? Incredible!

Martini Dan said...

Pineapple-jalapeno salsa sounds wonderful! Nice photos thanks for sharing!

Liz said...


I love hearing about your family's baseball love, and that you make an effort to all go to games together. (The thought of my own family doing this is hilarious, though it would probably be fun.)

Liz said...


I wish we could hang, too. Have I told you lately how excited I am for Rhinebeck? New York in the fall! With knitting! And Glenna hang-out time! Exclamation points!

Also, woot for sweet potato fries. Delish!

Liz said...

Thanks, Erica! It totally was. :)

Liz said...

Mom, I wish you could come to Surfside for lunch today, too! I think I have settled on these shrimp tacos as my new favorite there. But it's a close race.

Liz said...


The ice cream was RIDICULOUS. I think they gave me an extra-huge one because I asked for a cone and they were out. It weighed at least eight pounds...and now I weigh at least eight pounds extra. :) But it did cool me off!

Liz said...

Martini Dan (nice name, btw),

The salsa was amazing. So pineapple-y! I should learn how to make it at home...

Dogeared said...

I love how you and Sherlock have identical poses! And mmm - ice cream. Plus sport to watch. All good! Even better with friends :D

Sorry I'm late!

Bellacantare said...

ahhhhahahaha, the cat pic is priceless. Love! (sorry so late!)

Alison Henry said...

You and Sherlock DO look alike!! I love your pictures of you, me, and Paul. Please put them on Facebook or email them to me!! I put all mine on Facebook, so you should be able to access them, but I don't think they are quite as good as your pics.

By the way, now when we look at houses we have to label one of the spare rooms the Baller room. Just for when you come and visit. Thanks again for hosting us!!
