Jujube Sunset

Spent the afternoon with Jen and Julianna. Forgot my camera -- again. *head hanging in shame*. Thank goodness Jen sent me this photo of Jujube sitting on her mat playing with her toys this evening. She is 6 months and my guesstimate of her weight was 19 lbs 6 oz. She has her 6 month checkup tomorrow so we will find out just how accurate her grammy's guess is :)

When I headed over to Jen's this morning, I saw a large smoke column on the north side of Cape Meares -- a debris burn was my guess. When I got back into town on my way home, the smoke from the controlled burn had settled over town and the air had that shimmery glow from the low angle of the sun reflecting on the smoke particles. I figured tonight's sunset would be grand and I was not disappointed.

When I got home, I watched the sunset and took this shot when it had the most color.

As always, click the picture to biggify it -- there are some spectacular colors!

More Pictures

I figured I had better post some more of the pictures taken while Mom was visiting. These are of Jennifer, Mike, Julianna, and the roses Mom bought me.

Jennifer -- I love that smile!

Jennifer, Mike, and their darling creation, Julianna.

Julianna sitting on her play mat holding on to her toy with one hand and her mom's finger with the other.

The roses! They were a total surprise -- Mom borrowed my car on Saturday while I was working with the FDL Membership Engagement Team and she returned with roses! For me! They glow with an almost neon pinkie reddish maroon when the sunlight hit them (or the flash in the picture above).

Here is a picture of the roses taken without the flash.

They smell as good as they look. Thanks Mom!!!

Four Generations

I know, I've been terrible and haven't put up the pictures from Mom's visit. I've been busy doing stuff and neglecting this wee little blog.

Here's a picture of Mom, Jen, Julianna, and me.
