Guess how many?

If you guess how many photos I took, I'll give you a mention in my blog as an awesome guesser... No answers from Stacey or Leslie will count.

Be within 10 of the correct answer and you might even get a prize, like a framed photo of me! :)

There are two numbers... The number of pictures that were on my camera when I came home and the number that were left after I deleted the bad ones. Guess either or both.

FYI-I have an underwater camera housing for my camera, so include those pictures in your count. And for the record I arrived on Tuesday midday and left on Sunday midday.

I'm back!

I've been feeling guilty about not posting lately. I've checked my blogging friends and it seems I'm not the only blog slacker.

I've been in Mexico! I spent my 35th birthday in a little town called Akumal, about 60 miles south of Cancun. The condo was great, the rent car was great (always get the insurance!), and the company even better (my college buddies Stacey and Leslie).

I'll write more when my mind gets back from this beautiful place. Our condo is in the second picture below, the short white one, approximately centered in the photo.

Thing Number 47

I mentioned in my 101 things that I procrastinate. It waited to put that down as number 47 out of 101. Would it have been funnier if I had put it down as number 101?

Along those lines, let me tell you a story. Today I finally washed a pair of shoes that got dirty back in late September, when I went to the Austin City Limits Music Festival. It was SO hot and windy and dusty. Really hot and windy and dusty. Like ruin your clothes with red dirt and sweat hot. I don't have a picture of the dirty shoes, but I do have pictures to show the dust bowl that was day 2 of the festival.

The above picture is day 1, just before Lucinda Williams performs.

Sunset, day 2. Or rather "the day of dust."

Yard Work

Today I spent time outside working on the yard. The weather was fabulous.

I trimmed the hedges in the front yard and fertilized the whole yard.

To demonstrate how quickly the hedges can get out of hand, I took two pictures before I trimmed the final hedge... I'll include them both so that you can see how bad the one is and how great the others look as a result of my handiwork.

If you're lucky, and you encourage me by leaving comments, I MIGHT post pictures of my super green lawn next week.
