This was another week with extra selfies in it – what’s up with that? It also, cruelly, offered a small taste of spring. You can see below that we actually saw grass in our yard this week – and I rode Daisy around the neighborhood on Saturday. But today (Sunday) it’s snowing while I’m writing this. Sigh.
Sunday, February 23rd
The weekly squirrel.
I was working on a hat for a friend, but something went horribly awry. Giant mushroom anyone?

Well, we’ve removed Christmas from the outside of the house, but inside…
Tuesday, February 25th
The tulips were fading – but kind of cool looking.
Wednesday, February 26th
I headed out of town today – to Reston, Virginia, for a work meeting. I emailed this picture to Dr. M so he wouldn’t forget what I looked like. Ha!
He saw another flock of wild turkeys on his way home from school.
I LOVE this chickadee – what attitude! I think this picture needs a caption. Any ideas?

I got to meet up with Southlakesmom today! She did me the huge favor of taking me to breakfast & then dropping me off at the office for my meeting. It was great to get to see each other – wish we’d had more time to talk.
I was supposed to go to Capitol Hill to spend some time with Reya, but the cost of getting from Reston to the Vienna metro station was prohibitive, darn it. I didn’t plan very well. Since I missed out on the visit I decided to take a Reya-style reflection picture out of my hotel room.
Back home, Dr. M captured a typical scene from our back yard.

I flew back this morning. Since I didn’t take any pictures on the plane on Wednesday I decided to grab some today.
This is (I think) the Shenandoah River. It was so cool! I edited the picture so you can see it’s serpentine-ality.
Back home, Dr. M captured actual GRASS in our back yard. Too bad it didn’t stay that way.
Saturday, March 1st
Dr. M & I went out to do some shopping and passed by a pond with this motley collection of ducks. The small black & white ones are buffleheads – so cute!
I fixed the giant mushroom from earlier this week – it’s still a lot of hat, but I think it will be fine for my friend.
Have a great week!
Most of our photos are taken with a 12 megapixel Nikon D5000 DSLR, using a 55-200mm zoom lens. This is the camera that Dr. M takes with him most days. He also takes pictures with our old reliable 7 megapixel Canon Powershot A710. The Bug uses our new Nikon Coolpix S6200 most of the time. If you’re interested in which camera was used for a particular shot, just ask!
