For those of you who have commented to me about missing the poetry on If Only I Could Find My Pen . . . and on The Way I See It . . ., I've posted to both blogs. And I'll try to be back on track with more regular posts now. :)

Well, I'm honored and awed by the nomination of my blog for the Best Photography Award by dear Burg over at Deeper Shades Of Red. You can see it by clicking on the following. You could vote for my blog while there ........ :) ......... but that's not mandatory.
Burg herself was nominated for Best Blog on Stuff, and you can see her award site and vote for her by clicking in the Blogger's Choice Awards button, similar to the one above which is located in her sidebar.
Today was an insane day for me with many little stress-producing tasks for me to get accomplished, but they got done and what a relief! I've been running around like a chicken without a head, on the phone in between, and emailing about other things, but the big stuff is over and done. It's a big whew. Or rather a series of big whews! I'll blog about that soon, but not for today. Right now, I need to kick back and catch my breath.
Ahhhhhhh. That feels good, feet on the coffee table, pillow behind the back, and chilled out.
Just for fun, a couple pictures of Ali. One of his favorite toys is a stuffed squirrel which is so old that the squeaker (thank goodness) no longer works. Yesterday he was following me around the house with it hanging out of his mouth. He was carrying it by the tail and it really looked pathetic, yet funny. I reached for the camera, and like any good model, he dropped the squirrel from his mouth and posed for me. Dang. I missed the funny picture of the limp, bedraggled squirrel in his mouth, but these are comical, too. Notice that when he put the toy down, he put his foot on it. That is his way of "protecting" it from me.
Even when he decided to lie down and rest, the paw stayed on the squirrel! You'd think I steal toys, wouldn't you??
