12 of 12: August

Another month, another batch of photos. 12 of 12 is the brainchild of Chad Darnell; blame him.

8:06 - It was a dark and stormy foggy night morning.

8:45 - French toast! On a WEEKDAY! Hanging out with retired parents rules.

8:50 - Alex reaps the leftover benefits, which he then guards zealously from Sherlock, who doesn't recognize them as food anyway.

10:45 - Act IV, take two. Or three. Four? Hard to say.

11:38 - Water lilies and a goldfish in my parents' backyard pond; slightly less romantic than Water Lilies due to non-cleaning of algae filter. Yum.

3:30 - Zipping to the library to pick up some old photos from a librarian friend.

3:38 - Let me just say: 1995 was not a cute time for any of us, and Academic Decathlon sadly did not have a "please stop looking like a dork/dressing like your grandmother" event. But...but at least we memorized all the capitals of Africa and were intimately familiar with the history and economic impact of the Nestle Corporation. Right?

7:20 - Hand and Foot with friends after dinner...

9:30 - ...followed by birthday peach cobbler! Which is the best kind of peach cobbler!

9:45 - Somebody forgot to birthday-ize the cobbler, but this is healthier, anyway. Happy early birthday, Mom!

10:30 - Watching the Perseids from the driveway. (With flash.)

11:45 - Sherlock's default position/location.

Mine was a foggy day too. What's going on in the East Bay?? Where's the summer!? :-)

Hee, I like the make up birthdayisation! Yay for being home with parents - I love it too :D

Sorry I’m late commenting – my own 12 only went up on the 16th lol, as I was visiting friends. But better late than never for posting and commenting ;-)
