Mari is a day or two ahead of Julia with a virus that renders them achy in body and throat! Low grade fevers and mucous flowing like waterfalls have laid them low. The only positive thing I can say about this bug is that I'm glad it came early enough as to be cleared up before the first day of school!!!!
Mari has been a tad...shall we say moody of late. For a couple of days I was forbidden to take pictures and especially forbidden to post any pictures of her to either Facebook of the blog! Teens being teens means that the moods ebb as quickly as they peak and I was asked to PLEASE take some nice shots of her....so she could change her profile picture on Facebook....HAH!!!!
Trying to figure out all the lighting quirks! Facing her into the sun to get her face out of the shadows gives me funky squinty eyes....so I'm going to play with these in Photoshop and see if I can do anything with the shadows.
This would be the kind of picture that gets me into trouble with her these days! Just thought I'd give you a peek at just how my lady survives at the lake house. While we were out on the end of the dock trying to figure out the whole fishing thing....she rode up on the scooter and plunked down in a chair and pulled out her phone to catch up with the gossip!!!!
As usual the 'family' garden up at Auntie Peggy's has become...
Auntie Peggy's garden!!
Our saving grace it that she cannot eat it all by herself!!
