Weekend Snapshots

My weekend in pictures:

Found this little guy on our patio.

Moved flagstone here.

Played with Dixie & all four-legged furries.

Made Friday's dinner of white truffle mac 'n cheese.

Made Sunday's breakfast of pumpkin pie pancakes.

Picked up new glasses.

Hope you had a good one too!

(P.S. I ran 7 miles on Saturday, but didn't have a camera. My training continues.)

That little guy on your patio... I love that picture. Beautiful!

Alli said...

You're such a good wifie. :)

Yes, cool little chickie you found on your patio...I wonder how many male counter parts she has devoured? mwah-aww-aww

Diggin the glasses...very pretty!

Great job on the running! I'm jealous. I just can't seem to find my motivation again...

r.e.h.: Thanks! It was absolutely fascinating to watch. They don't have smooth movements when walking. . . It was almost creepy.

Alli: She looked quite p*ssed I was photographing her & I was wondering when she last ate.

The glasses sure aren't Prada, but I guess they turned out better than I remember. I was pretty upset when I left there, b/c I thought I lost my earring.

My motivation comes from a running partner. We have a set schedule and we are very good at sticking to it! I don't think I could do it on my own either.

Not to be repetitive, but that IS an awesome photo...all of them are.

White truffle? Sounds classy...My Friday night's dinner was McD's...

ETK said...

I love love LOVE your new glasses!!

Jay said...

What planet did that thing on your patio come from??

Cool glasses!

Ian said...

Seriously, that's a great picture. Acid for blood, you think?

Buffy said...

That first photo is just too cool.

Rock Chef said...

That mantis, or what ever it is, is great!

Alli said...

Yeah, I miss having a training partner/group. Hubby is having foot issues, so it's tough for him right now.

mindy said...

That bug is weird, but cool.

Cute doggies.

Awesome glasses!

Good job on the run. I hate running any further than 5 miles. Period.

Sorry I've nothing original to add but the picture of the Praying Mantis is really cool.
And the new specs are rather smart - really like that picture too.
Also, I love an alliterative breakfast although my favourite would be a Big Brown-Bread Bacon Bap.

Princess: White truffle rocks the kasbah! But it was only mac 'n cheese - a bit like Micky D's.

etk: Thank you! I was a bit worried as I couldn't remember much of what I'd bought when I saw I'd lost my earring. I'm okay with my rapid decision. Still. . . .they're not Prada.

Jay: It does look like the alien from "Alien" doesn't it? I even thought it's hands were cut off & felt sorry for the leetol guy, but then she just "un-folded" them. Creepy.

Ian: She seemed pretty peeved I was taking her picture! I should be more careful, esp. when it comes to acid for blood! ! !

Buffy: Thank you! It turned out better than I realized at the time.

Rock Chef: I saw her from my computer and had to go investigate. She did turn out to be a pretty cool thang. . .

Mindy: I'm not a fan of the over 5-mile-club either. So not a fan. But it has to be done. ***ugh*** Thanks for the kudos on all the pix's.

Shanksi: ***laughing*** Leave it to the Scotsman to find the actual definitive word to the same consonant at the beginning of each word! (I had to look that one up, I can't believe you knew that off the top of your head!) You're good, man - really good! Thank you all the same.

P.S. I like bacon and bread, in fact, the Morrison's are famous for egg and bacon breakfast sandwiches after a night out with brewsky's, who wouldn't love such an honorable food?

. . . Mmmmmm. . . . Hungry now.
