The raspberry bush is loaded this year. I picked a quick handful this morning.
TIME: 8:48 PM
PLACE: Joey B’s on the Hill, St. Louis, MO
SUBJECT: Stella and her spaghetti
The girls and I went shopping in St. Louis this evening.
We then went out for supper.
That’s a whole lot of spaghetti – she didn’t make a dent.

I received a phone call at work.
Son: ”Mom, I dropped my phone and the screen cracked.”
Me: ”Do you have $200?”
Me: ”Does it still work?”
Me: ”Well then, I guess you are the proud owner of a cell phone with a cracked screen.”

PLACE: Edison’s Entertainment Complex
SUBJECT: TANK! TANK! TANK! Results
It was a work family event today – unlimited games, bowling and laser tag! SD introduced me to “TANK! TANK! TANK!” We teamed up to battle the Bee-bots and the Octo-roboty thingy. I think I was a hindrance more than a help – but then, I’m an old woman, so I have a good excuse.

PLACE: Estate Sale
SUBJECT: Movie Light fixture
I hit the 2nd day of an estate sale (50% off you know).
The home looked like an ordinary 50’s tract house from the outside.
But it was pretty sweet on the inside.
This light fixture was in the dining area (note the exposed beams).
It wasn’t for sale.

SUBJECT: Collated Roofing Nails
We are replacing the roof on the garage.
In 90 degree heat.
We are gluttons for punishment.
On the other hand…
Who would of thought that the nails we’re using could be so pretty?

PLACE: Westhaven Pool
I had to be stealthy while taking this picture.
I sooo wanted to move the Styrofoam cup.
But then DramaQueen would have known something was going on.
And I had to see her reaction.
I’m a horrible mother.

It looks like quality control was severely lacking in his lettuce cleaning department this evening.
It also looks like Caesar dressing and roly-poly bugs are a bad combo.

We are soooo close to being finished.
The moon section has many, many similar pieces.
It’s taking longer than I thought.

PLACE: My brother’s
SUBJECT: The Cousins
We had a rare occasion this weekend. The entire clan of 1st cousins were in the same place at the same time. And, as always, it was commemorated with a “Stair Picture”…

TIME: 11:58 AM
SUBJECT: Meatball, a 6-week old calf
Our local historical society had a street fair and historic district house tour today. My dad, sister-in-law and I met up to take the tour.
Meatball, aka "Belle" is an 8-week-old, black angus calf. Her role at the street fair was to walk down a street which was once known as "Cow Street," In our town’s early days, this was how people used to take their cows to pasture. She performed at 10:35am, 12:00pm and 2:00pm.
TIME: 10:38 AM
SUBJECT: Gas Meters
While waiting for my dad and sister-in-law to arrive, I took this photo of gas meters for my husband (he works in the gas department of the local utility company).
That’s the kind of thoughtful wife I am.

PLACE: Centerfield Park
SUBJECT: Grandpa – putting
DramaQueen was at work, MonkeyBoy at a friends and StellaDella was itching to do something. We called Grandpa on the way to the mini-golf course to see if he was up for a friendly challenge.
I made a hole-in-one on the first hole…woot-woot! Unfortunately for me, that was my peak and it was all downhill from there.
He ended up winning…that’s the last time I invite him along.

When you are told by your son at 8:50pm that his soccer shoes don’t fit (and the first summer soccer practice is at 9:00am the next morning), you rejoice when you find out that Sports Authority is open until 10:00pm.
You also take photos of the deformed mannequins while you are there.

I have been slowly removing, stripping, staining and reinstalling the woodwork in the kitchen. The back door with its transom window are the latest sections I’ve completed.
