Happy Birthday/Anniversary to Mia who came to us three years ago today.  This is an older picture of her that I took that day.  She was about 8 to 10 weeks old at the time, so, not exactly her birthday, but she was brand new to us so it's all the same.  She had a patch of fur missing from her nose in this picture.  I think she'd been in a little scuffle.

She's so much fun to have around.  Tons of funny personality, and she's totally a mama's girl.  Love you Mia!

I've been MIA again, dealing with a nasty stomach bug since this past Sunday.  I'm on the mend, and hope to be more active again on the blog.  For now, I'm taking it easy and getting lots of reading in.

I picked up a badge from the Camp Nanowrimo site today.  It's the same people who do National Novel Writing Month in November, but this is their summer version.  I dig the camp idea.  I've been working away at my story, slowly but surely.  I'm behind, like way behind, but I'm trying to catch up.  Smores and encouraging words are always welcome.

Snapped this butterfly on a quick trip to the park today before going out to eat lunch.

I've really let the blog and photo taking slide this week.  I've been preoccupied with other issues, and just haven't had the time.  I hope to pick it back up and have some new photos to share very soon.

I'm also working on my novel for Camp Nanowrimo, which is causing great headaches.  Just over 500 words into it, I wanted to change the original idea for a "better" idea, and now neither idea seems so great.

Another weekend got away from me.  I've been wanting to capture a photo of sunflowers, but all the ones I've seen growing in the area are too hard to get to.  While we were out for mexican food yesterday afternoon, I spotted this really cool bowl with painted sunflowers on it sitting on a stool as part of their decor.  Closest thing so far.
