5 things...

Here's to another week....another seven days closer to the beach. yippee!

1. We watched the moon on Saturday. It was big, but I think I'm partial to a late summer's moon. Maybe it's because we are usually still in the Adirondacks when it appears. There's nothing better than seeing it come up over the mountains and shine upon the lake.
2 We are loving the extra light in the evening.
3. The boys have been wearing shorts...thinking it's summer. Lot's of boys on the trampoline. It's fun having everyone around again.
4. Mud season has arrived in full force. The snow is slowly melting away leaving treasures on the lawn. Found the shovel that we were looking for and the lawn has been properly fertilized by our dog.
5. The stomach bug finally caught up with us here at Upper Pond. Word of advice for those of you that have younger children: when they want that uber cool shag carpet for their room- know that it's a b*&%th to clean after a midnight vomiting session. Just sayin'
Have a good week everyone!

Beautiful composition in all your photos here, Jane. Lovely.

Joe and I saw that big orange moon glowing low on the horizon and into the Caribbean Sea first this Saturday morning as we got up to catch a flight home from Jamaica. Made that early morning wake up call and unexpected gift.

All I can think of is... Is that a pancake filled with whipped cream? Hubba hubba!

Then again by the look of the last amazing image - life seems pretty good.

Hope your guys are feeling better today. I'm so glad to have mine in school today - we have nearly every mon off and it's fun but not much of my stuff gets done.

LOVE the way you captured the light in the photo with the wine glass - such a wonderful composition.

Aw, sorry about the stomach bug... and the carpet! Love the mud pic! Just back from Puerto Rico (the moon was fab!) so off to check out your other posts!

Ugh stomache bug, what a nightmare. I can't even imagine what it would be like to clean up that mess in shag carpet.
As usual all your pics are beautiful, but I must admit I stopped and drooled over the last one. What is that inside the pancake???
