Convenient break

Filed under: Sports — lessie @ 1:57 pm

Sunday was c-o-l-d — at least in comparison to the temperatures we’ve been having. It didn’t stop these kids from playing outside though. You can see another air born here.

My kind of neighbors

Filed under: Animals — lessie @ 11:54 pm

I love neighbors with this kind of sensibility. (Unfortunately, my dogs ignore this sign! I have to rein them in.) Cats are beautiful animals. One day I hope to have dogs who love cats, too.

It’s coming

Filed under: Spring & Summer — lessie @ 11:45 pm

This is the perfect time of year. Walking brings up only a glisten, not a sweat; the breeze is refreshing; nights are brisk; the flowers are gorgeous; the pollen is here, but in small quantities. My nose and eyes aren’t running yet. But it’s coming. It’s near. Soon yellow will cover my car and every single outside surface. And I’ll be wearing (almost unashamedly) a white dust mask when I go outside. (They really work!)

Tacky post

Filed under: Homes — lessie @ 4:52 pm

I have to admit this post is kinda tacky. But so interesting! I love looking at houses, how much they are selling for, what they are like inside, etc. I like it so much I’ve wondered if I should go into real estate. Ha! (Realtors’ hours are too unknown for me. I need the security and accountability of a set schedule, starting and leaving times. But enough about me.) This Georgian home (so nice of them to put that in the info sheet!) is quite stately and beautiful. (Not my personal dream home, but just lovely.) It faces a park area and is surrounded by other equally stately and magnificant homes. Still…the cost struck me dumb for a moment or two. Can you read it in the pic? (A larger pic is here.) Unbelievable. (Especially when I consider my home — less than 1/4th of this cost — is within walking distance.) Obviously I need an education about home prices! This certainly gave it to me. 🙂

Evening light

Filed under: Homes — lessie @ 3:18 pm

The sun shining on the wires caught my attention. The neighborhood seems sleepy, settling in for the evening.

Flying Fish

A fierce aviator is this Flying Fish — circling in front of Anderson City Hall. What fearless pilot commands her? Click here for more pics. By Tom Gibson and Paul Brown.

Dogwood buds. I took the pic yesterday evening on a walk — had to wear a jacket. We even had a freeze over night. What will become of the buds and flowers?

Downtown Cemetery

Filed under: Cemeteries, Guest Photographers — lessie @ 2:14 am

I love the color and perspective of this picture, taken in a downtown cemetery. The photographer is Rudy Bortolini, an ex-pat from Italy who is working in Anderson. He says he was touched by this tombstone of a baby who was born and died on the same day.

This Easter was a little bit sad for me. Not terribly, but just a bit. Maggie and I walked around after lunch with my dad, and I took pictures of every different bud and flower I could find. So viewer, you’ll be seeing flowers for a while on this site, no doubt. 🙂 It’s a cliche, but they energized my spirit. They helped me appreciate my surroundings. The sun and comfortable breeze.  Maggie’s delight with each new smell. While I didn’t go to church or celebrate Easter in traditional ways, God’s creation helped me remember the holiday and be thankful.

Sleeping soundly

Filed under: Jockey Lot — lessie @ 1:39 am

Cathey and I arrived at the Jockey Lot on this Saturday about 4:45ish. It had a different feel. The breeze was chilly, but not bone-chilling. The tables to the right in the above photo are normally “saved” by tarp and rope and even goods hidden beneath blankets. This day, table after table was bare. One or two people milled around at the far end, but at the Avon side, the only sign of those who normally “stalk” the prime outside tables was the above camper. A dark yellow electrical cord running from outlet to camper revealed that someone must be sleeping inside, waiting for the jockeying to begin.
