June 23, 2011 - Day 469

I know I bought at least three rolls of paper towels in preparation for the move and I don't think we used them all, so why was this roll so hard to find?

June 22, 2011 - Day 468

Stumped on a photo for today, so here's my favorite portion of one I took last summer, which I'm using as a desktop image on my computer. I don't remember if I was intentionally aiming to catch the bee, but it delights me to see it there.

June 21, 2011 - Day 467

Strange looking clouds this evening. The forecast shows some severe thunderstorms, which means more rain for us.

June 20, 2011 - Day 466

First injury in the new place. Well, actually made by the rental car during the move. Michael got caught in the head when the hatchback cover - which had been stuck - finally snapped out towards him.

June 19, 2011 - Day 465

Lovely sunset on a very hot day.

June 18, 2011 - Day 464

We didn't pick the coolest time of year to move, but I think we'll survive. The temperature in my car actually read 115 degrees when I first got in but dropped three degrees by the time I got the camera ready.

June 17, 2011 - Day 463

The new casa. Let the move really begin.

June 16, 2011 - Day 462

Exciting day - the parade celebrating the Mavericks' NBA win - right outside my office window. We had to get to work a couple hours early because they were expecting about 250,000 people to attend. Note the sea of people who braved the heat to see the parade, including Mark Cuban holding the trophy.

June 15, 2011 - Day 461

It's beginning to look like we're moving...

Beryl's helping us pack for the upcoming move.

June 13, 2011 - Day 459

I have really enjoyed seeing these towering sunflowers around town.

June 12, 2011 - Day 458

The time IS now for the NBA Champion Dallas Mavericks! (Haven't gotten our championship t-shirts yet.)

June 11, 2011 - Day 457

Tree in our new neighborhood - on its last day. Unfortunately, it was dead and was removed today.

June 10, 2011 - Day 456

Temporary key to our new place. The other one the landlord had was also pink but shaped more like an acoustic guitar. The locks were re-keyed and now we have shiny, though very normal keys. (It's a little sad.)

June 9, 2011 - Day 455

Incredible basketball!

June 8, 2011 - Day 454

Sadly, not the beach. Just a lot next to where restaurants are being rebuilt after a fire. It is a nice reminder of the coming vacation, though.

June 7, 2011 - Day 453

Big game tonight. Neighborhood bank supporting the Mavs. (And, they're a great friendly bank, too.)

June 6, 2011 - Day 452

This is the only potted plant that survived the snow and the aphids. Lovely to see it bloom, and perhaps more than once.

June 5, 2011 - Day 451

I always enjoy seeing the crape myrtles bloom.

June 4, 2011 - Day 450

Clever bird feeder made from dishes.

June 3, 2011 - Day 449

Boxes, boxes, everywhere...

June 2, 2011 - Day 448

This was not what I expected the photo to be for today. We're okay - just some sore muscles. Michael's car is going to the shop tomorrow.

June 1, 2011 - Day 447

I always get compliments when I wear these beads. Before he knew what this was a photo of Michael said it looked like an image showing cell structure.
