August 31, 2011 - Day 538

The summer has not been kind to yards this year. Ours is still green, and maybe looks even more so because the ones on either side are yellow.

August 30, 2011 - Day 537

The sunset was spectacular tonight, though photos rarely come close to what you see with you own eyes. Thanks to guest photographer, Laura. (I was driving.)

August 29, 2011 - Day 536

I'm hopeful that this morning's rain and these puffy afternoon clouds support the chances that this weekend's forecast - rain and a high temperature below 100 - may come true.

August 28, 2011 - Day 535

Laura's lantana is bright and pretty. Since I was a kid I always liked this plant's multi-colored blooms.

August 27, 2011 - Day 534

The entrance to an electronics store that resides in what I'm convinced was previously a country and western dance hall. Of course, the more frightening may also be true - that they decorated this way intentionally. Inside is even stranger.

August 26, 2011 - Day 533

Sadly, you don't see as many men wearing ties as you once did.

August 25, 2011 - Day 532

A colleague gave me this, with the advice that it might not be the best way to transport a project to a meeting. I guess not everyone would find this funny.

August 24, 2011 - Day 531

Tom and Jen are hosting a boy kitten whose owner is on vacation. He's pretty energetic and a little ferocious!

She's a happy girl. A view of the hummingbird feeder and a nap - what else could she need?

August 22, 2011 - Day 529

Even though it's still very hot, the light is pretty at the end of the day.

August 21, 2011 - Day 528

Sometimes, at the end of the day, they cooperate. We enjoyed many moments of watching them (and at least one other) zip around.

August 20, 2011 - Day 527

A photo of a photo almost seems like cheating, but this one in a sandwich shop spoke to me.

August 19 , 2011 - Day 526

Gazania, which I planted in the back yard. It also comes in red and orange, though most of the ones I bought are yellow.

August 18, 2011 - Day 525

Sunflower seeds - fresh from a friend's yard. Can't wait to taste them!

August 17, 2011 - Day 524

A skirt I bought at a street fair this weekend - made of sari fabric.

August 16, 2011 - Day 523

The whiteness of this web made it catch my eye, and upon closer inspection, I think the part in the upper left corner looks like it has dandruff. I wonder what caused that...

August 15, 2011 - Day 522

Guess what I dropped, and then had for dinner.

August 14, 2011 - Day 521

Heading to the airport and leaving the mountains behind. Too short a trip.

August 13, 2011 - Day 520

Chautaqua Park in Boulder, Colorado - a lovely hike.

August 12, 2011 - Day 519

Sunset in Niwot, Colorado, near Boulder.

August 11, 2011 - Day 518

What are those weird-looking things I see through the window? Oh, yeah: clouds. Too bad there was no rain, but the slightly cooler temperature was nice. Decidedly less oven-like.

August 10, 2011 - Day 517

Believe it or not, some flowers do okay in the heat, if you keep them watered. And I appreciate this very much! And, bonus: they look pretty with water drops on them.

August 9, 2011 - Day 516

I was pretty glad this guy was on the outside of the window. It is cool to see him up close, though.

August 8, 2011 - Day 515

Some of today's last rays and shadows.

August 7, 2011 - Day 514

One lone hair clip. I found the basket of hair things I hadn't seen since the move, but somehow in organizing the bathroom I lost track of it again.

August 6, 2011 - Day 513

Back in yoga for the first time in too long. This is what I could see from the window.

August. 5, 2011 - Day 512

Basil actually seems to like the heat. I noticed it's actually growing towards the sun.

August 4, 2011 - Day 511

I love the shape of the turk's cap flowers as they unfold. The hummingbird likes them too.

August 3, 2011 - Day 510

Old meets new - no more wrestling with the lopsided gate. 

August 2, 2011 - Day 509

This summer continues to be brutal.

August 1, 2001 - Day 508

Groovy glass tiles on the outside of a building near a favorite restaurant.
