Animal Wednesday and graduation week.

This week is full of graduations, and family obligations (fun ones).

One cousins kid had an art show yesterday out in New York State - as she graduates from college out there. We went out to see her work (large and impressive) and as she was surprised that we had taken the time to come, it was a great evening with family.

This kid was only about 2 lbs when she was born - she wore doll clothes and you could hold her practically in one hand. She's grown up with no problems !

My nephews graduate high school on Friday. I expect tears and joy.

We were bike riding on our favorite rail trail last Sunday when I saw this sign telling me what brook I was near. Somehow I'd never seen the sign - but love the name and have to figure out how to pronounce it.

And I swear there is an osprey in this nest. Everytime I got a chance to focus - he popped his head down. Damn bird.

And this picture I just liked.

Happy Animal Wednesday - happy HOT Wednesday for those of you in the northeast - we expect to be WAY up in the 90's today. I just try to keep remembering the 4 feet of snow from last winter.

What fun to have another artist in the family. Congrats to the graduates. That name sounds familiar. Maybe it was an indian name? HAW.

studio lolo said...

what a fantastic art installation! Congrats to her. And I love that picture of the two of you. Can I have that shirt you're wearing? :)

I believe that word is pronounced..UN-KETTY-NASSET. The "qu" in this case pronounced like a "K" just like Quebec.

I love the shy Osprey and the flower shot. And like you, I love being the favorite Aunt!

Congrats to the boys on their graduation!!
