My son and I shared these eggs and toast this morning. I'd already had a cup of coffee right out of bed, so an hour later I drank this green tea (trying to cut back to one cup a day). I'm not sure why, but I'm interested in what people eat, especially for a "boring" meal like breakfast. So here are my boring eggs.

Blackberry Season

We found some huge blackberry bushes hidden away in a parking lot a couple of blocks from our house. They're almost ripe, just a couple weeks yet...

Where Opa Got Shot, that one time in '76

Summer Spider



Our son, from the very first, has been mesmerized by this view. He will lay on the couch, wide awake, staring in wonder at these trees, especially if the wind is blowing.
