I had a wedding today so I wasn't home much. I forgot about my photo of the day until a few moments ago. Today's picture is of some flowers that were on our table at the reception. They were going to get thrown out so I snag a few.
The second photo is a rose that the groom and some of his friends made. They are made out of chewing tobacco lids and barbed wire. They really are quite pretty.

I took the kids to a park today over by their school. They had a ball. It was only supposed to be 65 degrees today and cloudy. It ended up being a beautiful day. There is a pool at the park but since I listened to the weather forecast, I didn't bring their suits or towels. The lifeguards were nice and let us put our feet in at least.

I know I already did a moon photo but I couldn't pass this one by. The color of the moon was a shade of orange and it looked really cool. I tried to get a photo of the moon viewed between the pine branches. Being that it is dark outside it was kind of hard to tell that was what I was trying to do. lol

I'm not sure of the name of this plant. I found it along an old stone fence and brought a few pieces to the house and planted them. I don't remember there being flowers on it in the past. I think this is the only one that has flowers on it now. I might go and get a few more in the spring. I can't get to them now since the weeds are so grown up where I got them from.

I finished a wash cloth that I was making. It was more a practice piece than anything. It turned out pretty well. I will choose a different yarn next time though. This one was a bit thin and hard for me to work with. But maybe with practice it would be fine. Who knows.....

I went to visit my brother and sister in law today and to meet my newest nephew. He is such a little peanut and so beautiful! I almost didn't want to share. On the way to Syracuse we saw a field of sunflowers so we pulled over to take some photos. So that is also a photo of the day. I got so many good pics today that it was hard to have just one.

Today Jim and I went to the antique show in Bouckville. It has been going on for years now and is really quite large. We haven't gone in years, at least not together. My sister went with me a few years ago. Anyway, the weather was extremely hot and humid today and by the time we got home, I was sick. My head hurt (still does) really bad. Migraine bad. I feel like I am going to be sick. I was laying on the bed with a cold wet wash cloth on my forehead with the fan blowing on me. Nicolas came in carrying a bag of animal crackers and a class of ice water for me. He was so sweet taking care of me. Then Nicolas went and got me a few of his stuffed animals and Benjamin brought in his big bear thinking that they would make me feel better. Today's photo is of the animals that they brought in for me. I am so lucky to have such sweet boys.

Today's photo is of my messy desk. I have several projects going at once and this is where they get set when I'm not working on them. I usually sit here while working on them so I can watch the boys. I know this isn't very exciting hopefully I'll get some that are much more exciting during this coming week.

Today was a lazy day. We read books and the boys watched a movie. The boys also made crowns, drew and made a "treasure box". I cut paper to fit around a general foods international coffee can and they drew pictures on it. Then I taped it to the can and they put their treasures in them.
The pictures of them today were while they were drawing a picture for santa. The movie that they wanted to see was a Christmas movie. It is getting them in the mood for Christmas. lol

This is the scarf that I am knitting. I'm not sure who will be getting it. I'm trying to make things for Christmas and I really liked this yarn and pattern. When I'm done with it, I hope I will know how will like it. Chelsea likes the yarn and wants a pair of mittens made from it. I'm thinking that they wouldn't be very warm since the yarn is very thin.

This plant is called Tansy. Its an herb that has been used for many different things. It can be harmful so I don't use it for anything. I don't even bring the flowers in the house. I used to have bunches of it when I lived in Norwich in my first home. My mom gave me several plants of it and it spread quite well. It is really pretty when there is a bunch of it together that is flowering. This photo the flowers aren't opened up all the way but I wanted to use it any way. Some other names for this plant are: Common Tansy, Bitter Buttons, Cow Bitter, Mugwort, or Golden Buttons.

Wow I have done this blog for a month now. I am glad that I am doing this. It makes me keep a look out for interesting things to take a photo of.
Today's photo is what I found on the floor while cleaning. I knew which one of my boys did this even before asking them. When I asked Nicolas who could have done this, he put his head down and said that he did it because he loves me. How could I be angry with him. It is done with permanent marker so I'm not sure it will come off. Actually I don't think I care if it doesn't.

This is a spur of the moment photo. I forgot to take one earlier today. I was going to take a photo of the full moon tonight but Colin suggested that I take one of him. Then Chelsea wanted to get into it as well and poor Tyler was more or less dragged into it. He was a good sport about it. I also took a few of the moon. I haven't had a chance to check them out yet. It is getting late and I am very tired. So once I click on "publish post", I am off to bed!

Nothing fancy today that is for sure. My wind chime that is in my flower bed. I don't usually like too many wind chimes, they drive me nuts with their constant noise. But this one is so pretty and is rather quite. It is more like a twinkling noise. I really like it. The other photo is of a lady bug that is also in my flower bed. I love garden art.

When the boys got back from swimming tonight, they wanted hot chocolate. While at the table drinking it Benjamin wanted to play a game. He got it out and was handing out pieces. He asked me if I wanted to play. I really didn't want to but the way he asked and the look on his face changed my mind. So here are the boys (hot chocolate faces and all) playing monopoly. Benjamin won the game by the way. I got beat by a 5 year old! That's just not right. lol

I went out this evening to capture todays photo. I was out front taking a photo of what I had wanted to post but when I turned around I saw the fog. I thought it was pretty so that is todays photo. The field out behind our yard with the fog rolling in. Our neighbors back yard was completely covered but ours wasn't yet.

I was mowing the lawn tonight and I saw a little hoppy toad on the lawn trying to get away from the mower. I missed him thankfully. Then when I went out to feed the chickens and my dog, I saw another one. The great thing is that I had my camera with me. Here it is. The little hoppy toad.
