First let me start off with this sign of spring. Okay, I’ll admit that it just happens to be growing by the dryer vent but I’ll take whatever I can get right now.
While finishing my morning coffee I saw this guy perch on the fence outside my kitchen window and hunt Chickadees in the neighbor’s bushes. No he didn’t get any. Some crazy lady drinking her morning coffee had to go scare him away.
After all that excitement I got to introduce the Bandit dog to his new vet. Bandit is one very hyper little Jack Russell Terrier who thinks it is his job to bark at every person and dog that comes into his sight. There were about four dogs in the waiting area at once and only mine was going nuts. Next time I’ll keep the bark collar on him at the vet. But we both survived and he was back to his normal self about two minutes after we got home.
Then I headed over to the Northville Art House to pick up my pieces. A few minutes into my arrival there someone says ‘Hey, the Day of the Dead lady is here!’ This piece keeps getting attention. I could have sold it three times now. So I had a great conversation with a nice lady named Jane about Catholic artifacts and relics, packed up my stuff and headed out. I then called Victor and told him maybe I needed to revisit some skeletons. But before leaving the parking lot I snapped this from the cemetery next door.
From there I headed over to my folks house to set up and photograph the quilts from the Running with Scissors Weird Michigan Challenge. Those photos will be coming soon but here’s make-shift studio I set up, and tore back down again a few hours later.
It’s still my parents house and I’m not allowed to leave a mess, I don’t need a lecture from Mom. Not to mention that is her new stain glass workbench in the background that she hasn’t even used yet. It came in handy.
So over a gig’s worth of photos later, I finished up and headed home. Victor is making dinner and just handed me a beer. Really, not a bad day. Now I have some photos to crop and RAW photo data to manipulate, and now Victor has some songs to write for Weird Michigan.
