Color ~ Week 4 ~ Green!

Here is a mish-mash of green things. The peas in a pod really cracked me up. I was a vegetarian for 30 some years, but never would have thought to march in a parade to advertise it! The scenic photo is of the twin rivers north of us. In real-life it is breath taking. I honestly cried when I saw it the first time. The view was so amazing. My water grown Daffodils have since been transplanted to the dirt and I'm afraid the African Violet might be on it's last legs. I've never had good luck with them, but for some reason can't stop trying. The green container Jess is pointing to holds one of my favorite sugar ladened treats, Hawaiian shave ice. Can only get that at the county fair. Yum. The mint julep soap at Sandpoint farmer's market looked good enough to eat too...hmmm seems that maybe I'm hungry now!!

Shadow Shot Sunday #119

Patrick & I have been staining our deck after David brightened & power washed it. I found a few shadows while Pat was working on the edges. Then I snapped him relaxing a bit last evening. The final shot is of the Moon and Mars (to it's right) in the night sky. The sky was really glorious - filled with stars. Unfortunately it didn't translate as nicely into photo form.
For more Shadow Shot Sunday pics go visit our hostess, Tracy, HERE. Have a lovely weekend.
love, Cassie

COLOR ~ Week 3 ~ Yellow

These were the first yellow Calla Lilies I have ever seen. I got them at our local Safeway store.
Yesterday Patrick, Jessica, David and I went to visit the game preserve. Jessica's yellow/mustard colored sweater really stood out. I took a lot of pictures there and might just regale you with them later!
These flowers were a gift a few weeks ago from my friend Shelly. She knew I was feeling a bit "blue" so thought some yellow would cheer me up!
Aw come on, you didn't really think I'd do a post without one pooch picture, did you?!
You've probably guessed, today is Color Monday and our color is yellow!
To join in, or just see the other entries in Color Monday, please follow the rainbow on over to Jen's blog! She's our hostess and has all the other participants listed there.

Shadow Shot Sunday ~ #117 ~ In The Window

How much is that doggy in the window? Priceless. Our daughter & son-in-law have been here a few days and were pampering Hootie with their attention. Glad I snuck up on them and got these Shadow Shots.

Hope you get over to Tracy's to see more Shadow Shots too. Just click HERE and you'll be there! Happy Shadow Shot Sunday!

Shadow Shot Sunday ~ #116 ~ Around The Cabin

This series of 3 photos was taken as I laid on our bed in the loft. Finally figured out how to turn off the flash. You can see my tootsies on the pillow in the second one. He he.
Here Hootie points out a thin shadow.
These Coues Deer antlers came from Arizona. (Pronounced "cows", but almost everyone pronounces it "coos".)
We call our place Smiling Moose Point. I collect different moosely items for that reason.
Our deck is 3-sided and Patrick sanded it down by hand last month...What a job! Our son-in-law is coming over from Seattle next week to stain it. Of course the daughter will accompany him. Yippee!! Haven't seen her since December so can hardly wait.
This shadow falls on the dreaded pile of dirt. That pile has been there for 5 years now and I can't stand it! When our dogs go outside and start their crazy-terrier-zoomies they run up on that pile and cause a terrible dust cloud. I think my hubby is going to (finally) move it when he gets here next. He plans on filling in dirt behind the new retaining walls so I'm hoping the removal of this dirt pile is part of that plan.
Did I mention that I am something of a hermit?
I took all of these shots in and around our cabin. Shadows just kept showing themselves to me!

There are a bunch of us, from all around the world, who have joined Miss Tracy in posting our Shadow Shots. Tracy is in Australia so her Sunday is my Saturday, & that explains why my posts (generally) show up on Saturday morning. If you'd like to join us, or just want to enjoy other Shadow Shots, go on over to Tracy's blog. Just click HERE. I hope your weekend is going great. Blessings to anyone who stumbles upon this blog!

love, Cassie

Shadow Shot Sunday ~ Jalapeños

These Shadow Shots were taken with my husband's cell phone when we went out to eat at one of 3 Mexican restaurants in Sandpoint. We both are always on the lookout for some different shadows. It's an addiction of sorts!!
