This is the first time i recall finding moss on a tree in my yard. Or perhaps i never really paid attention before. I remember when camping as a girl scout we were told we could determine what direction to take when hiking if we got lost by looking at the moss on a tree. Moss usually grows on the north side of a tree because that is the shadier and thus damper side. Sure enough thats the side this moss is growing on, the north side.

What better way to spend a rainy afternoon than reading and cuddled up with some pups.

365-66 after the rain

i love geraniums. they bring back fond memories of vacations in mexico. i would stay for hours at my aunt Esperanza's house. she had 11 kids so there was never a dull moment. she also was a great cook and had the patience of a saint. In the patio where we played, she had several plant stands full of geraniums.

365-60 Gyro

My first time to try one of these believe it or not. Sliced lamb, homemade Tzatziki sauce, tomatoes and red onions in a grilled pita. It was quite tasty but definitely enough for two people! Also came with some zesty fries!!

First shade is called Hot and it definitely looks better on me than that other shade there.

365-56 butterflies

If you ever go to Neiman's you have to ride the escalator into the 'cloud of butterflies'. These hang in the center of the store and whenever we go I feel like a princess or something as they twirl and twinkle while i go from floor to floor. That feeling fades when i look at any of the price tags. But the butterfly curtains sure are pretty.

365-54 Burger Street

The colors at this place were so vibrant i had to take a photo -- i'd never been here before but they had a sign announcing their new sweet potato fries. Those weren't so good.

365-49 Blue Cloud day

The sun was trying to peek through on my way to work this day...having a hard time getting through the clouds. Note the street lamps ahead -- they remind me of spoons.

365-48 Just because i was craving it....

i had this ooey, gooey chocolatey thing....and later i was regretting it. A combination of mousse, fudge stuff and raspberry topping - it was SO rich!

365-45 - a pioneer

On valentines day Ree Drummond came to town!

As did her hubby Marlboro Man :)

Her cookbook (Pioneer Woman Cooks) has some good old fashioned recipes and great photographs along with short snippets about raising a family on a working ranch.
