the 365/52 project is past the halfway mark at this point, but by how many weeks? three? i'll have it figured out before the recap of this past week. but first, a photo-heavy look at the three weeks preceding this last one ... because as god as my witness i WILL keep up with this thing!!! (and again, a strict adherence to truthful time line is a bit, well, fuzzy.)
harper takes a "max & ruby" break from her summertime activities of coloring and asking when her brother will get home from school.

we're gonna paint the house. technically, we're gonna paint the house one shade darker than the gray on the left.
my violet gave me two little blooms.
mario looked noir.
harper got to feed her cousin. i told you about that in the last post.
one day the light was just right and i told harp i could see her brown stripes. she said, "take a picture," so i did. can you see her brown stripes?
adorable little vessels at my cousin luke's studio and gallery, mudlove. like 'em? stick around ... there's a giveaway coming up.

harp picked out these mint things. then found this deformed one and demanded it have a photo shoot. she can be so weird sometimes.

and ... more rain for the daisies.
a sleepover takes control of the sun room.
i loved smith & hawken's honeysuckle jasmine scent because the honeysuckle reminds me of the hedges of honeysuckle at my grandma mary's house when i was a kid. so imagine my happiness when i found a candle of it at target the other day. then the check-out lady said, "oh, this scent reminds me of funerals!" huh. to each his own.
hey look! it's raining! again! and chipotle's cups predicted it!
the children, browsing barnes & noble.
with every new house that goes up near our lot, our lot suddenly feels smaller and smaller. hope the next-door neighbor leaves us some room.
saw these beautiful flowers at a restaurant and wanted to remember them for my next yard. coleus and lantana and petunias ... oh my!
okay ... glad that's done!!
until next time!
