and my time is very limited today – i’m leaving for NYC tomorrow morning!  i’m going to brooklyn with bev, to help her daughter erin move from one third floor walk-up to another, so i’ll for sure get lots and lots of exercise.  we’ll hopefully have time to do a couple of fun things besides all the moving.  i’m helping bev because she’s so nice and never asks for any help, and also because she’s always staying at our house taking fabulous care of our kitties while we’re gone.

so it’s the least i can do.

meanwhile…i woke up early this morning, thinking about the many things i have to accomplish today, in between working.

i’m going to try to post most of my final february photos today, but i think it’d take two entries because there are so many of them.  maybe it won’t happen, but you never know what the day might bring.

moonlight on the lake – hmm, i realize i should try the HDR setting on my new phone, and i think i’ll get better quality.

kevin was sick, keeping himself occupied with his ipad, and les was watching over him.  good kitty!


february 13th, one of the many lovely february days we’ve been having.  les has gone on many, many walks this month.

i saw this adorable stuffed heart at the store and fell in love with it.  i was going to get one for randy, because it was just so cute, and i thought about getting one for kevin but then i told myself WE HAVE ENOUGH STUFF LYING AROUND HERE without some giant stuffed heart.

but when i got to the store, i couldn’t help myself, and it’s sitting in the chair across from me, very cheery.  i might keep it there all year.

kevin bought me too many lovely tings for valentine’s day.  the day before i told him “i don’t really need any roses,” because in the past he’s rushed out and gotten some on the actual day and i didn’t want him to bother.

and then, the next day, this box arrived in the mail – he’d already ordered some very fancy roses, individually wrapped…and i can’t believe i didn’t take a picture!  at least here’s chester, enjoying the perfect fit.

i’ll have to take a picture of the roses, because they’re still looking good, almost a week later.  fancy.

here’s last friday, les posing on a rock.  he could totally be in ads for…well, i’m not sure for what.

jim had texed me a photo just like this when he went running, and when i ran through the woods on saturday i saw the same tree.  kevin says it looks like beaver marks.  crazy beavers.

ok, now i must rush around quite a bit although i sure would just like to sit here for a while longer.
